Moored Beauty Schools have educated cosmetologists since 1959, so they understand the importance of mentors for developing talent. That's why their teachers impart the secrets to transforming manes in a salon instead of a sterile classroom. While each apprentice snips locks stands, an instructor stands nearby, ready to offer guidance on how to best cut an A-line bob or sew in an extension. Instructors also nurture aestheticians-in-training, who smooth skin with facials and waxing services, as well as future nail technicians, who brighten fingertips with OPI lacquer. Moored Beauty Schools feature three branches in Michigan?Tulip City, Twin City, and Traverse City Beauty College?with one additional in Indiana?Michiana Beauty College.
Same Love Same Life has one mission: promoting acceptance of the right to love no matter people's sexual orientations, sexual identities, genders, or anatomies. To do so, the artists' collective showcases paintings, photography, poetry, and other art from LGBTQA-friendly creators at its Monroe Street Studios gallery. Its artists also feature their work in local art shows and teach art classes, including watercolor, photography, and mixed media.
The Beaux Arts Ball After Party evokes the artists' balls of the 1920s and '30s as guests don costumes and dance to celebrate the avant garde artists and fashion designers whose ideas evolved costumes into wearable art. Guests strut their stuff in outrageous costumes during the Beaux Arts Grand Procession as they contend for prizes from South Bend's local dining and entertainment hotspots. Guests can rub elbows or velvety antlers with newly crowned Lifetime Achievement recipients Mayor Steve Luecke and sculptor Tuck Langland while sipping adult beverages from a cash bar, munching on sweet treats, and mingling in support of the South Bend Art Museum. Toes tap as the live tunes of The Marquis with Terry Austin float in and out of aural canals, much like the advice of a loving Q-tip.
There's more than just strength-training and cardio equipment at Memorial Health and Lifestyle Center. The expansive facility also features a lap and therapy pool, basketball and racquetball courts, and locker rooms with whirlpools and dry saunas for washing and drying your sweaty workout clothes.

Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use your own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottle to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

Bolster blood-pumping organs with sophisticated cardio equipment while buttressing biceps and shaping solar plexuses on top-notch strength-training equipment.
