The school was founded in 1983 by Lora Moreau, a native of Acadiana, who continues to serve as the school’s Director today. Her daily involvement in the beauty students’ education enables her to achieve her goal of excellence…”to educate the very best student to respond to changing fashion and beauty trends and to satisfy the needs of every salon client”. With a beauty career spanning more than fifty years, Lora’s background includes owner-operator of several salons, lecturer, retailer, and television beauty consultant. She was also appointed by Gov. Jindal to serve as a member of the Louisiana State Board of Cosmetology. Lora has also served many different leadership roles with the Louisiana Association of Cosmetology Schools.

In 2011, Lora’s son, Andre’ Moreau, joined the school as the CFO and Business Operations Manager. Andre’ had a successful 20 year career in healthcare and was formerly the VP of Business Development at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital. Andre’s goal is to allow Lora to have more time to work with her students, instructors, and customers.

Lora’s love for this exciting career and her caring attitude for her students is reflected in the success of her graduates that extends into the work force of the community. At C.T.C., her staff members teach far more than basics in hairstyling. Students learn additional skills, knowledge, and techniques that help them prepare for today’s job market.
