You have a life. We get it. Going to cosmetology school and building a new career takes time and making the leap and enrolling can be a hard decision, especially when the class schedules don’t work for you. Choosing a cosmetology school that works with your lifestyle and existing schedule is important. When looking at different schools this is something that you are probably considering.

At Bellus Academy, we listened to our students and are changing our class schedule to better fit their needs.

Here’s the scoop:

Out with the Old, in with the New

Our old class schedule was the typical Tuesday-Saturday that many cosmetology schools stick to, especially in California. While this schedule has worked for many years, we decided it was time for a change. The new Bellus class schedule will now be Monday-Friday.

Why the Schedule Change?

We like our weekends off and we think you should have them off, too! Going to cosmetology school and building a new career shouldn’t have to mean sacrificing other important things. Having time to spend with family, friends and doing what you love is important to living a balanced life. In turn we think this will make it easier for you to be a focused student. We also think it will make an awesome difference in the culture of the school. We are excited about the new schedule and the changes that it will bring.

In addition to giving students time for themselves, it also makes going to cosmetology school simpler for parents. We want to provide the opportunity for moms and dads to build the career of their dreams in the beauty industry and we are doing this by switching our schedules.
