Kansas became even more beautiful on Monday, October 21, when some of the nation’s top beauty talent and professional beauty brands descended upon Bellus Academy’s Manhattan campus for an inspiring evening of artistry.
Bellus Professional leadership and award-winning hairstylists from Southern California came together to present a Creative Collective and spotlight emerging hair design. Vibrant hues, fantasy color, dramatic haircuts and provocative make-up were on display.
Guest artists included Pulp Riot artists Joseph Cuozzo and Tonya Wnek, Wella Signature Artist Carrera Alvarez and Bellus Professional Creative Director Diego Raviglione. As a destination school, Bellus Academy connects students with industry artists, influential brand leaders and trendsetters while they are still in the classroom; facilitating valuable connections and networking pathways.
These photos speak to the spectacle, style and professional represented at the Creative Collective.
“The teachers were amazing! Without Bellus, I wouldn’t have the rewarding life I have today. School was something I looked forward to every single day. I can’t believe I have a job that I love going to every day.”
“For the past year I have been working on super-yachts in Spain as a massage therapist for billionaires and have loved every second of it! I don’t know what I would’ve done without Bellus’ training and expertise.”
“I love how hands-on the nail program is at Bellus. I am a visual and hands-on learner and I appreciated the time and focus on my advancement throughout the program. I would definitely recommend Bellus Academy to anyone interested in beauty and wellness education, especially the nail program!”
“The program and educators in Make-up Artistry are exceptional. The curriculum was so well designed that each day I couldn’t wait to get to school and begin the next step in learning high-end makeup. I feel very comfortable after taking this class to apply for a job anywhere in makeup, including a Hollywood studio, theater, photography or in a high-end salon and spa.”
“As a cosmo crossover, the Barbering Program was not only an excellent way to brush up on the basics, but also the best way to take my career to the next level. The staff was so helpful in every aspect and I highly recommend the program.”
