George and Dorothy Heavilin established House of Heavilin Beauty College in 1953. Since then, the school has prided itself on graduating talented professionals who continually land in esteemed positions across the country. Instead of practicing on crash-test dummies, though, students perfect their craft while providing salon services for customers. Under the expert eyes of the college's educators, budding cosmetologists and aestheticians administer facials, apply makeup, cut and style hair, and conduct various waxing services.

Q&A with Diane, Owner
Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
I have worked with BioElements since 1996. It is great for all skins and I am pleased that it contains no perfumes or fragrances. The All About You Botanical line has some fabulous ingredients, like salicylic and glycolic acids that work hard to treat damaged skin.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
My clients make me happy. I've been lucky to be in business for 20 years and I love coming to work. Seeing someone come in with damaged skin and watching their glowing smiles after a facial is quite rewarding.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
They don't wash their face. If you only wash once, wash your face at night so you don't roll around on a dirty pillowcase day after day. Your face collects dirty makeup and oily skin that you come in contact with each and every night. Plus, your skin tells on you when you don't wash it.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Facials are relaxing, but they are also stimulating for both men and women. It gives an extra push to clean the dead skin cells off and bring the new skin to the surface; it can take years off of your look.
