student testimonial

"I would like to first off congratulate Bellus Academy and Courtney Donadio for achieving what we have not seen in years. I have been in the hair industry for over 11 years, and in that time I have had many great exeperiences with HAIR and my love for it. One thing, however, I have truly noticed, is the fact that American Beauty Schools do not produce the same quality of stylist that I have grown accustom to looking for in an assistant. The American Beauty schools produce a new evil that I was unaware existed until owning a salon, and that evil is a stylist who is just in it for a job, and is not passionate about hair, does not love hair, does not dream of hair. At Diesel Salon, we have created a team of stylists who are dedicated, motivated, and are truly passionate about their craft, taking pride in their Art. Art With Boundaries is what we call it, and having the ability to create Art With Boundaries is something that cannot be taught over night, cannot be learned from a DVD, and cannot be educated to someone through a book. To achieve the ability to create Art With Boundaries takes time, dedication, and passion. I feel that Bellus Academy has achieved just this. Our new assistants came to us as new graduates from Bellus Academy, ready and eager to master their craft and exceed our expectations, and you know what? They have done just that! With the addition of two new motivated professionals, our team has been able to push forward with our agenda of becoming the Best San Diego has to offer. It has been apparent to not only myself, but to everyone at Diesel Salon that Bellus Academy is now our "go to" Academy, and we could not be happier with the new relationship that has sparked between Courtney and Diesel Salon. We would love to have a part in the education of young and eager minds, and that is why we have decided to work with Bellus Academy on the externship program. Hopefully our contribution of experience will help with Bellus Academy's agenda; to be the Best San Diego has to offer."
