Guest Blogger Rafael Benitez, Academy Manager El Cajon Campus

In March, future professionals attending El Cajon had the opportunity to invite friends to enjoy a day in the life of a JE Boutique student at our “Bring a Friend to School” event. There were 30 participants in our day and evening classes combined.

In April we hosted our second annual Industry Appreciation Event at our El Cajon Campus. Attendees included partner salons, prospective students and industry professionals. The evening included hors d’oeuvres and refreshments as well as a list of sample treatments like Pumpkin Peel Hand Treatments, Paraffin Hand Ttreatments, Deep Conditioning Hair Treatments, and Thermal Styling. In addition, we had artistic demonstrations from some of the industry’s top professionals such as Diego Raviglione and Jeffrey Floyd. Kristina Monique demonstrated the art of beautiful makeup and air brushing. Judy Edelman did a sneak preview demonstration of  Nova Lash – Lash extension applications.

Our Future Professionals are so talented that they were asked to do the hair and makeup for a contestant in the Miss El Cajon beauty pageant, who was crowned Runner-Up.

In keeping with our pledge to revolutionize beauty education, JE Boutique is gearing up to enhance our curriculum. We are very excited to upgrade our educational offerings in business and haircutting with the addition of Bellus Best in Business and the Bellus S.T.A.R. Precision Haircutting System.

Bellus Best in Business is a revolutionary in classroom and web based lecture system that will prepare future professionals for success in developing and growing their artistic talents in to a business that is both fulfilling and lucrative.

The Bellus S.T.A.R. Precision Haircutting System is a system that enables the student to grow both technically and creatively by being able to expand their knowledge using the Nick Education site that includes over 50 creative and technical haircuts and growing.

Come see how we are revolutionizing beauty education and truly live in the belief that Beauty Changes Lives!
