True or False

Q1. Eyelash extensions typically last for two weeks.
 False. Eyelash extensions typically last up to six weeks depending on the eyelash hair growth cycle.
Q2. Brow waxing results in finer hair regrowth.
 True. Brow waxing results in finer regrowth. Any type of hair removal such as waxing, sugaring, threading or tweezing what requires pulling hair from the root can weaken hair papilla and lead to finer hair regrowth.
Q3. Facials are not recommended for people with acne.
 False. Facials help to clear pores and reduce oil production and they can help in the care and management of mild to moderate acne. People with very severe cystic acne should consult a dermatologist to seek treatments for their condition. 
Q4. A Hydrafacial is the recommended “universal” facial for all skin types.
 False. Hydrafacials are good for all skin types. However, a Hydrafacial may make sensitive skin more red due to strong exfoliation. Oxygen facials are more suitable for sensitive skin. 
Q5. You should never remove hair above the brow line.
 False. Modern brow shaping requires cleaning of the brow arch, above brow line and between brows. 
Q6. Scholarships are available for aspiring spa professionals.
 True. The Beauty Changes Lives Foundation (www.beautychangeslives.org) offers scholarships for aspiring estheticians, massage therapists and nail professionals in addition to makeup and cosmetology scholarships. 
Q7. Leading beauty brands sponsor student competitions to discover emerging talent.
 True. Companies such as Wella sponsor scholarships to identify emerging next-gen talent. Several Bellus Academy students have received national honors in brand-sponsored competitions 
Q8. Beauty schools offer discounted haircuts, but not more sophisticated services.
 False. Many beauty and wellness schools, including Bellus Academy, offer a breadth of luxury spa services including comprehensive facial and massage therapy services, eyelash extensions, brow shaping services and professional makeup. 
Q9. Beauty and wellness students can train for dual-licensure.
 True. Many estheticians and other professionals also receive training in massage, nail care or cosmetology. 
Q10. Beauty and wellness education incorporates “business skills” as well as technique.
 True. Beauty and wellness education includes more than technique. At Bellus, students learn financial literacy, marketing and personal branding techniques as part of the educational offering.
