Portage, Michigan Empire Beauty School Featured in the Beauty School Advisor Article: “Krissy’s Cosmetology School Instructors Encourage Her Talent”

October 1, 2008

The Chic University of Cosmetology on Constitution Boulevard is now an Empire Beauty School and was featured in the Beauty School Advisor article, “Krissy’s Cosmetology School Instructors Encourage Her Talent.” The blog article begins by saying that Empire Beauty School student Krissy Simmons has “warm feelings toward the beauty school staff.”

Krissy was particularly impressed with two cosmetology educators at the Portage Empire Beauty School. Theresa Ward “always told me that she saw something really special in me. She knew that I would make it in” the beauty industry. Terry Loucks, Krissy’s pre-states beauty school instructor, “offered Krissy personal nurturing.” Krissy says, “As I got close to graduating, I was becoming very emotional, just because I had made so many amazing friends and had gotten so close with my teachers. Ms. Loucks was there to pick me up every time I felt down or got emotional, every time I had a question about interviewing or getting a job, every time I had a problem with my personal life.”

Also, “Krissy recalled how helpful” the “enrollment director was in getting her financial resources” to pay for beauty school.
