Cosmetology students can choose from tons of different beauty schools, so we strive to make Bellus a school that people want to go to. It’s not good enough to simply offer accredited programs, we believe that we need to give students an education worth their time and investment. This blog goes through the top eight reasons why you should choose Bellus for your beauty school education.
When it comes to our reputation, Bellus gleams with pride! From “Top Job Placement” from Modern Salon to “Best Academy in North America” from Intercoiffure, Bellus is being noticed in the industry, and there’s a chance your future employers could notice as well!
What good is a license or certificate in cosmetology, esthetics or another beauty career if you can’t land a job after graduation? Bellus was awarded “#1 Job Placement in the Nation” by Modern Salon, and it’s something we are passionate about! From resume assistance to interview preparation, we strive to help our students every step of the way in finding them the jobs they want after graduating.
Technologically in Touch
We live in the information age, so people need information when and where they want it! The same is true with our beauty school programs. We have a state of the art mobile app that gives students access to academics, attendance and job postings right at their fingertips any time they need it! We also include an iPad© with our cosmetology program kit, and other programs have access to discounted Apple products because we encourage our students to use technology with their education. We also want our students on social media so they can be building their following and clientele before they’ve even graduated!
Some students have ambitions of using their beauty school education to enable them to travel, so Bellus offers International Certification (ITEC) to allow our students to work in 38 countries around the world! For the students who want to work on cruise ships, or in salons throughout Europe, Canada or Australia, a Bellus education can help get you there!
Our graduates tend to either work for a business or open a business of their own, so learning business basics is essential for them to succeed! This is why our programs include business training that can help students learn to budget, manage finances, and develop entrepreneurial skills that they can use for the rest of their lives!
All of our programs are designed to prepare the students to sit for their respective board exams to become licensed in their new field. What good would their education be if they couldn’t pass the state board exam? We do everything we can to prepare our students to pass the exam with flying colors! We offer mock state board tests so the students can feel confident when they go in for the real thing!
Our externship opportunities, offered only for our California programs, allow some of our students the opportunity to work with high-end salons and network with talented stylists and owners. Some of these salons include The Doves and DK Hair, just to name a couple!
At Bellus we believe that education isn’t just a one-time thing, you have to keep learning throughout your life! This is why we offer continuing education, newsletters, workshops, career assistance and philanthropy opportunities for our graduates to continue to better themselves and hone their skills!
