Guest Education: Lauren & Rodrick Samuels

Hair stylists are some of the most unique people in the beauty world. They come from all walks of life.

That’s why embracing diversity in an industry that is ever-changing is important, or at least that’s what husband and wife Lauren and Rodrick Samuels of Hair Lab Detroit would say.


The designers appeared at the institute and our sister school, The Institute of Beauty and Wellness, to educate our cosmetology and barbering students about textured or curly hair and barbering. Samuels said during her presentation that not a lot of stylists actually know the subtle nuances of cutting curly hair. She’s actually the only stylist at Hair Lab Detroit that works with curly hair, though she emphasized the importance of being able to work with textured hair.

We were thrilled to welcome graduates from salons in the greater Madison area to observe the education as well.

The duo in the video above explain further the significance of knowing how to work with all hair types and talked briefly about what bolstered their interest in standing #behindthechair
