Hair guru Michael Boychuck has become a worldwide phenomenon since he began last year signing up students from as far away as Australia, Japan and Europe for his new online Hair Academy at OnlineHairCourses.com.
This week, he added two beauty courses to the web program of hairstyling, coloring, cutting and extensions. The additions cover makeup and skin science.
Michael, who has Color salon at Caesars Palace and salons in Life Time Fitness in Summerlin and Green Valley Ranch, told me: “I want my students across America and around the world to be knowledgeable in all areas of beauty so that they are well-rounded specialists.”
It’s the first online hair academy of its kind with videos and step-by-step instructions available in several languages.
Michael, who has been described by regular client Paris Hilton as “the best in the world,” is doing all the hair for competitors, judges and presenters at this weekend’s 2015 Miss Nevada USA Pageant, including host Shanna Moakler and reigning Miss USA Nia Sanchez of Nevada, at UNLV.
Michael’s sought-after celebrity tips and techniques that keep Hollywood stars looking glamorous are packed into the courses. His clients include Katy Perry, Gwen Stefani, Jenny McCarthy, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, LeAnn Rimes, Fergie and the Miss Universe and Miss USA contestants.
Michael and his team of specialists grade each assignment and provide progress and feedback. Upon completion, the students receive a graduation experience for their portfolios.

Transport yourself to the opulent and excessive Roman Empire at Caesars Palace. But the ever-changing Caesars Palace is far from ancient. The hotel and casino is constantly raising the bar for what visitors can expect in a Vegas resort experience.
Caesars Palace features 3,348 rooms and suites in five towers, including the new luxury boutique Nobu Hotel and Restaurant, which opened Feb. 4, 2013, in the totally remodeled Centurian Tower. Caesars features 129,000 square feet of gaming space, including the Strip’s largest poker room and a 250-seat sports book. Other amenities include about two dozen restaurants, a four-level shopping mall, four pools, a spa, Pure and Poetry nightclubs and Pussycat Dolls.
Dining options include restaurants from world-renown chefs Guy Savoy, Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay, Gordon Ramsay and, on Feb. 4, 2013, Nobu Matsuhisa.
You never know what characters you’ll run into at Caesars with regular performers like Jerry Seinfeld, Bette Midler, Elton John and maybe even the emperor himself.
