From Our Editors
Hollywood is best known as the home of the movie industry and a stomping ground for beautiful people. The latter is due, in part, to Yuko Koach, founder of KC Beauty Academy. Nominated for three Emmys for hairstyling, she has also worked on the sets of movies like Memoirs of a Geisha and Pirates of the Caribbean.
All told, Yuko has spent more than 25 years in the beauty industry, and at her school in the epicenter of Hollywood, she passes her expertise on to her students. She and a team of instructors teach not only hairstyling but also skincare, nail care, and more. Under supervision, students practice all these crafts on real clients in the onsite salon and spa. Ultimately, they graduate licensed to beautify even LA's most gorgeous, such as the perfectly symmetrical H in the Hollywood sign.
