We have taken a revolutionary approach to education by teaming up with industry professionals to create an advanced curriculum that will arm our students with the latest technical and professional skills desired by five-star salons and spas across the nation.
 
The curriculum offers comprehensive, professional training in all aspects of the beauty industry including hair design and sculpting, make-up artistry, advanced esthetics, holistic health, massage, and spa manicuring that are supported by professional business, finance and marketing courses designed to develop business knowledge. This advanced training coupled with our recent renovations will give students a professional learning environment resembling that of a “real world” luxury spa or salon.
 
Our academies have received national recognition as industry innovators.

student testimonial

Born and raised in San Diego, Brianne Bruggema earned her associate’s degree in Entrepreneurship Business in 2009 while working in the field of accounting. “I quickly realized this wasn’t the right industry for me,” remembers Bruggema.
 
Upon graduation, Bruggema enrolled in Poway’s Bellus Academy and completed its Makeup, Basic Esthetics and Master Esthetics curriculum. Bruggema also became an internationally certified esthetician through Bellus’s ITEC program. Bruggema joined Alexis K. in 2010.
 
“Bellus is one of the top schools in the country and it actually cares about your real life success rather than getting you in and out,” explains Bruggema. “The vice president of the school is actually the person who put me in touch with Alexis.” Bruggema enjoys her work at Alexis K. as a Master Esthetician and Makeup Artist since she continues to learn something new everyday.
 
“There’s always a change of pace which keeps things interesting.”
