student testimonial

"I am currently a student in the esthetician program at Bellus Academy and truly pleased with the education I am receiving. The esthetics program is very structured, directed by two dedicated teachers, Ms. Olga and Ms. Larissa. We have rules and regulations that are essential to follow so as to maintain a healthy productive environment with classmates and clients. I strongly feel this structure will benefit all students when transitioning from student to licensed esthetician. It is also beneficial having the opportunity to work in a clinic with clients while attending school; along with the education received in sales given the professional retail products to encourage home care maintenance for clients. I feel very lucky to attend such an established academy with knowledgeable instructors who guide, support and provide all of their students with the most current and high-quality education today. I am pleased that the academy also provides the opportunity to take the ITEC exam and has connections for recruitment with Steiner. I have found that the curriculum does meet and exceed the minimum standards and I am confident that upon graduation from the Bellus Academy I will be qualified to enter my career as an Esthetician."
