student testimonial

"I just want to thank you.... I went to Poway Academy for esthetics years ago, but I have wanted to do hair my whole life..When I worked at Carlton in Del Mar, I was offered the opportunity to do the apprenticeship program, which would have been a free education. However, I always knew that I wanted to get my education at Bellus when the school became Bellus Academy. I’m so glad I made that decision. It took a very long time for me to be in the position where I could resign from my job as an esthetician, to be able to go to school and only concentrate on that. Going to The Doves for my externship was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I honestly could not have wished for a better school experience. The teachers were incredible and completely supportive. I graduated mid October, and I’ve been studying for state board since then. I am so excited for this new journey! I have never been happier. I know how much you care about the students, and I’m not sure if they tell you enough how appreciative they are. So, thank you from the bottom of my heart."
