Program Curriculum

Our Barber/Cosmetology program is the convenient combination of our Cosmetology and Barbering standalone programs. Its curriculum covers a long list of salon services to prepare students to earn their licenses. To provide students with the theoretical knowledge and technical experience they need to be competitive, this program covers the following topics with verbal, written, visual, and hands-on instruction:

  • Hairdressing
  • Shaving
  • Health and safety
  • Disinfection and sanitation
  • Anatomy and physiology
  • Esthetics
  • Manicuring and pedicuring

To supplement their learning, students who enroll in this program will receive both an iPad and a comprehensive kit, which includes technical equipment, traveling cases, and more. These tools will help students build the practical and business skills they need to enhance their future careers as dual barbers and cosmetologists.

Personal and Professional Development

As future entrepreneurs, our students need business training and technical experience. To this end, our curriculum covers topics like brand development, retailing, online marketing, and financial management. These teachings will help sustain students far beyond their time at Bellus Academy. Further, our curriculum operates largely in conjunction with iPads, providing a unique, social-learning experience that will prepare them for the online components of running a business.

While enrolled at Bellus Academy, students will also have opportunities to compete in national competitions, participate in externships, and develop their portfolios and resumes. In some cases, these can lead to job opportunities at top salons and resorts.
