Bellus Academy in Poway. What is Bellus?? Bellus is a well known beauty school, aka the "Harvard" of beauty schools. They offer many different courses with in the beauty industry including; Cosmetology, Esthetician, Master Therapy, Holistic Health Practitioner, Nail Spa Technician and Make-up Artistry. They also offer other advanced studies within some of the programs. They have some amazing teachers that actually care about you and your education. Oh and they offer financial aid.
I toured this school a total of 3 times before I signed my contract to attend. You're probably thinking "what the heck, 3 times?"... Yes, you read that right lol. The first time I toured it, it was owned by someone else and although I liked it then, I just wasn't financially ready for it. The second time I toured it, it looked totally different, new owner, new look, new programs. I loved it this time, but my finances failed me again. The third time I toured it, I told myself this is my last chance. I'm either going to do it now or never. They were able to get my whole program covered with financial aid and some pell grants. So now you're looking at a soon to be Cosmetologist!
If you're ever looking to become a Cosmetologist or Esthetician or any other beauty related fields, make sure that you look into the school and what they are accredited for. You want to go to a school that will give you a top notch education. I know that money can be a factor, that's also why I chose Bellus because they offered financial aid. I've only been in school for a month, and I love it. I've met some great new people who share the same passion as I do. The teachers are great and know what they are teaching. One of the best choices I've made. Now I have about 15 months to go. Seems like a long time but I am hoping it will just fly by!
