I just want to say to all newly enrolled students and future enrolling students that you will never get a better education anywhere else but Bellus Academy. It took 2 years of my life, but it was all worth it in the end! I felt so overly prepared to take my state board test. While sitting in the waiting room to get my results, for literally 5 mins, I witnessed multiple girls from other schools walk to the window and immediately cry because they failed, and all the while I felt sorry for them, I remembered I got the best education that money could buy and I am forever thankful for this amazing school. It changed my life for the better!
- Toni LaRae Silkwood, Basic Cosmetology Program (Cosmetology 101)
"Bellus Academy provided a positive learning experience for me and helped me start my career. I got a great opportunity to enter the national SASC contest which has helped further my career. I love what I do, I graduated with a high attendance and grade point average. I got to do an externship program, and I am now working in San Diego's best hair salon Jet Rhys! I am so excited about my future and what's to come"
- Lydia Mikal, Basic Cosmetology Program (Cosmetology 101)
"In all the attempts I've made pursuing education goals in hopes of leading to careers offering financially successful and personally fulfilling rewards, my decision to attend Bellus Academy in San Diego has proven the most promising. The esthetic program offers extensive study in theory and practical application, as well as preparation for required State Board examinations.
The five month esthetician program produces within students, not only a solid base of skill enabling them to confidently begin careers, but with fellow students, have the beginning of a network of buddy estheticians, many of whom will no doubt lead to lifelong friendships."
UPDATE - Brianne is now working at the prestigious Alexis K Brows where she continues to learn something new every day. “There’s always a change of pace which keeps things interesting."
