student testimonial

"Starting Bellus was one of the best things I have done for myself.  You should try to get everything out of your time here-enter contests, do the events and fashion shows and take Advanced Academy.  That was by far my favorite month in school and was the extra inspiration and motivation I needed to get through the last few months of school.
The experience from this class was amazing.  Having the opportunity with high fashion designers was incredible.  But to even get published in Fashion Chicago Magazine was even more than I dreamed of.  For me being published on still in school is a great accomplishment for me.  I’m so thankful to have had this opportunity by taking this class.
When I first started thinking about Cosmetology School I was in high school majoring in Art.  Art was my strength and
I loved being creative.  I really wanted to go to the Art Institute of Boston.  That was my first plan.  But plans don’t always come through.  So I thought what could I do that would be a creative career and support me with a comfortable income.  
Well Beauty School was my second choice.  But I didn’t want to go to just any Beauty School.  I wanted to go to one of the top schools in the nation.  And the number  one school in the nation (Bellus Academy) was half an hour away from my Grandparents house!  So I packed up and moved out to California within the year!  Now that I am graduating, I want to do free lancing work to build my portfolio and further my education in the business.  While I get my license and find a salon that will nurture my creativity and use my skills to the fullest extent.  While still mentoring me to be a better stylist."
