student testimonial

"I have wanted to become a Hair Stylist since I was 14 years old. I started out cutting hair for my friends and family which grew to doing their friend's hair. After I graduated high school I looked into going to Cosmetology school. I put it off and joined the US Navy where I became a Military Police Officer. I still enjoyed cutting hair so I decided to do that on the side at work. I began to do more haircutting than my main job so I went to the Military Barber School. I completed the course. I decided after 14 years I wanted to do hair. I took a month off and researched different Cosmetology schools throughout Texas and South Carolina. I didn't see anything that impressed me so I knew of Bellus Academy and City College. So I came back to California and attended orientation for Bellus Academy. When I walked in I couldn't believe it was a school. I loved everything they had to offer and the opportunities they offer. I'm due to graduate in September and I'm happy to say I know I have to go out and work in the industry but I will truly miss my family here at Bellus Academy. I want to thanks everyone for making this dream come true."
