BACKGROUND: Michael Stein grew up in
Oak Park with his parents Hyman and
Miriam Stein and was graduated from
Oak Park High School in 1968. "Oak
Park is the greatest home community
I've ever seen and I'm lucky to have
grown up there," Stein says.
He recalls having a lot of energy as
a kid and always being active in sports.
One highlight of his high school career
was winning the school-wide Ping-Pong
competition.
When he was an adolescent, he
enjoyed watching "Perry Mason" on
television. "I really was inspired by
watching him, but hopefully I have
more reasoning.
After he was graduated from
Michigan State University with majors
in economics and history, he attended
law school at Georgetown University.
After he received a law degree in 1975,
he decided to continue his education at
the London School of Economics. Stein
found this experience intellectually
stimulating, and it gave him the
opportunity to travel throughout
Europe.
In the late 1970s Stein came back to
Michigan to begin his law career. He
started with the firm of Hertzberg,
Jacob and Weingarden. In 1978 he met
Heidi Ghafari and married her the
following year. Stein admits his parents
were skeptical because Heidi is
Lebanese, older than he and had three
children.
Stein is especially proud of his
wonderful family relationship. He states
that he and his family support Jewish
causes. "There is no Beirut in my
household!'
Stein and his wife have expanded
Heidi's Salons from three Michigan
salons to 35 salons in 13 states. In
addition to being chief executive officer
of Heidi's, Stein entered the publishing
world two years ago with the magazine
Sport Detroit. He believes this is the
first monthly, regional sports magazine.
The latest issue features female models
in swimsuits photographed in the
schvitz in Detroit.
Although Stein is busy working in the
business world with Heidi's and Sport
Detroit, he says the most understated
