student testimonial

After years of college and dead-end jobs I found myself needing both an education and a career in which I could feel fulfilled, creative, active, and successful. Growing up, I had always followed fashion trends closely, had my own personal style, and constantly given my friends and family hair and makeup tips. I finally had that "Ah-ha!"
moment and realized that cosmetology school was the perfect avenue for me, in which I could specialize in hairstyling or dabble in makeup if I desired. The next step was finding the right school where I could get the best education.
 
Bellus Academy was the first school I contacted about starting my new career. Not only was the atmosphere chic, leaving me feeling like I was in a busy, upscale salon, but the staff was very helpful, answered all of my questions and made me aware of the amazing curriculum I was about the experience.  I was already sold on Bellus Academy and knew it was the place for me, but I wanted feel out my options and see what type of schools San Diego had to offer. After a few disappointing appointments at surrounding schools, I knew that Bellus was the best, no contest.
    
Ever since my first day at Bellus Academy, I knew I had made the right choice. I was so excited to go to school every day because I was offered so many opportunities that helped me experience the details of the cosmetology world that I had always wanted. I was asked to speak with a reporter from the New York Times about the field of Cosmetology which helped me exercise my press interview skills. I was also a representative of Bellus Academy at the local Juvenile Detention Center in which I spoke to troubled youth about turning their lives around and making a positive difference in the world. One of the most fun opportunities I had at Bellus was being selected as a model for a photo session. Through that experience I had a taste of all the work it takes to make editorial hair and makeup transfer into a beautiful picture.
 
Those are just a few highlights of the countless opportunities I was lucky enough to experience on top of the already amazing curriculum.
 
After putting in many hours of hard work, I was eligible for the Bellus Academy Externship Program in which selected students are able to interview in real salons and work one day a week for school credit. I interviewed with Ryan Thomas Hair Studio, one of San Diego's top salons, and landed a position as an intern. I was so thrilled to have such an amazing opportunity. Thanks to Bellus Academy and a lot of determination, I was hired at Ryan Thomas Hair Studio before I graduated, which relieved the enormous pressure of searching for a job as a newly licensed cosmetologist.
 
I am currently working full time at Ryan Thomas Hair Studio, building my clientele, and loving my life more than ever. Bellus Academy was such a wonderful and unique experience I know I would not get anywhere else. I am forever grateful for all of the help, motivation, and support that helped make my dreams come true.
