Bellus Academy educator Dorothy Wrightsman and cosmetology student Chloe Cheatwood will compete as finalists in Wella’s 2018 North American TrendVision Award Competition in Las Vegas on July 16th.
The honor of competing in North America’s most prestigious color competition continues a seven-year streak of Bellus Academy team members named as TrendVision finalists/winners. Bellus Academy educator Matthew Hom earned top honors in 2012, taking home Team USA’s “gold” award for color!
Among the more than 3,400 entries in the 2018 competition, both Wrightsman and Cheatwood scored in the top five for #CreativeVision and #Student categories. They will compete live on stage at Caesar’s Palace, alongside finalists from the U.S. Canada and Puerto Rico.
“Bellus Academy is honored to have team members named finalists or winners every year since TrendVision was introduced in 2012,” said Lynelle Lynch, owner of Bellus Academy. “This year we are inspired and challenged to once again take home the top honor in this industry renowned competition.”

“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.”
