Tina Tapia, the owner of Adorabella Beauty Academy and of her own salon, knows that hands-on experience is key for students perfecting the arts of cosmetology, barbering, and nail technology. Accordingly, the pupils at Adorabella transform manes and nails under the close supervision and guidance of a licensed instructor. They wield Matrix hair care products as they color tresses, relax curls, or perm limp locks. Those in the nail-technology program pamper fingertips with nail art, CND manicures, and fiberglass wraps. The academy teaches classes in both English and Spanish, enabling talented students who speak either language to pursue their dreams of speaking either language in the dreams where they are doing Selena's hair.
