Bellus is a terrific and inexpensive place to try out new colors, styles and treatments! I’ve been coming here since they’ve opened up. You may not get the same student every time, but can request them. And all have done a great job. The teachers are there to guide them, as well
Went in to get highlights + color and my daughter got a shampoo and haircut, both done by Morgan, and they came out GREAT. We really enjoyed the results and she was so nice and helpful. We were talked through everything to make sure our hair came out exactly how we wanted. Definitely will be returning!

(Translated by Google) The truth is that I am very pleased with the service offered at Bellus Academy. The instructors Ivonne, Danielle and Daniel are super friendly, it shows that they have a lot of experience in mixing hair tones, cuts, and in all the services they offer. With his advice, the students who have attended to me, such as Darlene, Lydia and Fernanda, have managed to work wonders with my hair. In general, everything is very professional. I love when Leisha, my favorite, can attend to me. The establishment is very clean, the same the toilets. The whole atmosphere, from the receptionists make you feel safe and welcome when you enter the establishment. Widely recommended! ????????

Bellus academy is a wonderful salon with very diligent students. Savannah Jernigan did a FANTASTIC job with my I-tip extensions and I will definitely be returning to her for all hair needs in the future. Very motivated and hard working staff with amazing characters. They make you feel right at home!
I give it Two just for the students, but I went to this school. I Graduated even. When it was in National City, But they do not check on there students to see if they made it, or even have there license. All they want is the money. They don't care if you learn for real. They only pay attention to the best, or the best looking students. If your ugly. They won't take time out to teach you. The worst part is they don't even teach African American/Black hair. They try to tell you its all the same. But obviously it is dealt with very differently. Good we know Straight hair can get put into some braids. But the only way black are Accepted is if we straighten our hair with sodium hydroxide meaning relax. So not fair. If you want to learn about black hair. You have to pay more.
They are students. You get what you pay for. Or you could be surprised by what a fantastic job they do! Lilyana is one of the most pleasant surprises I could have hoped for and did a great job!!
I love bellus academy they are my favorite place to go and get my hair done
This place is great guys ! Go see crystal Rodriguez she comin up quick with them fades ????????
I went to Bellus academy at the beginning of this month. Savannah Jernigan helped me with my hair! I got color , wash , blow dry and straighten. I typically do not trust anyone but my hair dresser with my hair I’ve been using the same lady for 10+ years. Upon arrive savannah met me at the receptionists and helped me out. Due to the fact I use a wheelchair and the desk at reception is not accessible. Savannah did my hair in my wheelchair and let’s just say she did amazing. I give her 5+ stars. The reason I gave three stars to the academy is because this is suppose to be a teaching school. Savannah had to seek out out the teachers multiple times and no one walked around the 3+ hour she was doing my hair ( yes , not one teacher walked by the entire time. At one point one of the teachers looked over at us and walked in a completely different way). She could have completely messed up my hair and no one would have known because the teachers where to busy in a completely other part of the school talking & not paying attention. Also , the bathrooms advertised itself as being accessible but the doors where entirely to heavy. Also , they had no toilet paper in the disabled stall and that makes it very difficult considering I use a wheelchair and I can’t just go into a smaller stall to get tissue. It seemed like this may always be in issue as someone grabbed me some toilet paper and said it is typically always like that. But as I stated above savannah did AMAZING. And I was beyond happy with my results and savannah’s service to me :) her professionalism is amazing. I’ve been to another teaching school and the teachers made sure they walked around and helped the students. This was not the case at this school.
Beautiful, sophisticated facility, affable, competent & highly motivated student staff. Ridiculously good value on price point for services. Spotlight Recommendation: Frankie Fades: solid command of a proven skillset, even while honing his already precision tuned eye & top teir techniques. This man is set to plant his barber pole at the epicenter of the men's fashion grooming world and cast a fade far into the future!
Very nasty receptionist. I walked in with a referral to see a certain stylist and was told “that’s not how this works, you dont just walk in and tell us who you want. You have to take whoever is on the floor and we don’t have anyone for you today.” In a very disrespectful tone. We were actually in shock that she was being so nasty. We took a step to the side and were talking about what to do when a student told us she could help us as she was available. so we talked to the second receptionist, who started to assist us (who informed us there were multiple people available) when the first came back a second time and said “I already told them to come tomorrow, and don’t let the students talk to anyone who comes through this door. The worst experience I’ve ever had.
Do you receive a degree or certificate of what you study when you graduate from the academy?
If I could give a 0 I would had me waiting forever and didn’t communicate the wait and everyone that came after me went before me and my appointment was 10:45 with no one in front of me why am I waiting it’s 11:20 and I’m still waiting very unprofessional UPDATED ... so once called back by Darlene she was a doll. Very gentle with my hair an explained everything step by step, held good conversation overall sweet, so with her and her services I’m changing my review to a 5.
Marlyke The C.
Very helpful and very open minded for new styles and opinions..
Do NOT attend school there! They will make you spend lots of money & end up not having teachers for your classes! They always tend to be on their phones and leaving the classroom most of the time! They expect you as a student to be on time but they won’t do so themselves. $28,000+ is not worth it. Don’t get me wrong, there are a couple amazing teachers! Ps: this is my opinion, others have other opinions. But, many students can agree with me in this!! (:
Do you need someone for your students to practice?

I just had a great experience yesterday. Thanks to Brescille Albayalde, she did great job doing my hair and the result is so unexpectedly awesome. She is so nice and amazing. Also the academy are so spacious and they have a great facility.
Mary Lei A.
Just had a great experience yesterday. The satisfaction I received on how my hair turned out, is beyond what I expected!! I requested for a grey balayage, and the student suggested a 2 session service for it. Yesterday was my first session, and she made my hair look beautiful in gold caramel. I can't believe Brescille Albayalde is only a student, as her work is much better than any other hairdressers/hairstylists I've had before, that even other students were complimenting on how neat and clean she sectioned my hair during the process. I've been getting a lot of compliments! And with a 2 session process of bleaching, I'm super glad Im giving 100% of my trust to Brescille.
Brescille Albayalde was super awesome!!! She did a full balayage on my hair and it is super well blended!!! She was very fun to talk to and was super sweet!! I highly recommend her ????????
Yall never answer the dam phone
Great experience with Ana and Carmen. Friendly service and very happy with the results. The new space is much more comfortable than the previous location. I really recommend this school.
Something needs to be done. As a former student and graduate of Bellus academy, I have to say that I am extremely disappointed in the quality of education and lack or information that was provided while attending the school. Every issue that was brought up by me while being a student was never addressed, and was handled with unprofessionalism. If something is not done to resolve this issue I am prepared to do whatever it takes to educate and spread the word about how unprofessional bellus academy is. I've sent several e mails about the on going of events that I have encountered while attending bellus academy. Each time, it was not handled or dealt with unprofesionally. I have also posted a yelp review and will continue to post reviews and eventually reach out to the media, as well as the board of barbering and cosmetology. I feel as If Bellus academy is only out for the money and not for the betterment and education of the students. Why is it that the former students of Bellus academy recieved no information on or about graduation? No notification what so ever from any bellus staff? That is not fair and when I reached out about receiving more information about graduation... You guessed! it more unprofessionalism. It is extremely frustrating as well as devastating to know that I attended a school that cares more about the money than they do the students. That being said Bellus academy recieves over 15k per student yet when I attended, there was never a sufficient amount of products to successfully complete salon services. Not only were there not enough products but there was even such a shortage in towels that another student decided to go out and purchase towels for the school. And other students such as myself and others started to buy and provide our own products to use on clients because bellus never had anything available. I did not attend bellus Academy because I wanted to waste time and rack up student loans. I attended Bellus academy with the understanding that I would be provided with an excellent education in cosmetology and upon completion I would also recieve an Itec license. Not once during my term at Bellus academy was I educated on the process of obtaining that license until I was 2 weeks shy of completing my hours. Aside from that the only textbook ever used at Bellus academy was the study guide. All of the other books were never touched. So not only was the education insufficient, I was not provided with the knowledge on how to be a successful salon owner, or even how to file taxes as a cosmetologist in general. Something needs to be done about this. It is not ok to take advantage of people that are actually trying to better themselves and the board and Personnel of Bellus academy should be ashamed because I feel that is exactly whats going on. Best regards, -Mercedes S.
waste of money!!! i dont recommend. mr. and mrs. coo coo birds the married couple i forgot there names are nuts and they favor people. the receptionist karla is an idiot and favors people. DONT GO HERE THIS SCHOOL SUCKS YOUR BETTER OFF LEARNING FROM YOUTUBE!!
I had great time at Bellus
Marina Angeles P.
I was very happy with how BELLUS teach and treat my daughter, she has become a great cosmetologist and I really recommended to everyone to go to national city bellus because I can see how all students put their best on everything they do.
Wow came back to my favorite hairstyle girl Eva for some new highlights and today I have the pleasure of her manager Danny helping her out make my hair even more prettier! No need to feel scared on the completion because him and her work fabulous together and the results are Famtastic!
Sevice with Margo was great!!!
Love this place, They take care of you!! Great services. All I've done here is hair but it is great, and what ive seen for makeup and nails has been marvelous as well!! 100% recommend
Just got my beard and brows lined up by Jonathon and my hair washed up by Priscilla. Both were awesome, left feeling and looking clean!
Love it!! Ask for Eva, great nails, and everyone else is amazing!
First time here & I’m loving it!! Would 100% recommend this place for the excellent customer service + great prices.
I rarely go to a salon to have my hair done because I always want to save money, but I decided to try out the beauty academy near my house and the experience was way more than expected. I googled what I wanted and showed it to my hairdresser at Bellus Academy, Xiomara, and she did an AMAZING job!! I love my hair now and WILL come back for another wonderful experience. REALLY recommend this place. LOVING IT!!
Awesome place. Mercedes saved me from doing a treatment that would damage my hair that I didn't need. Will come back again and again
Yasmin Zakour is great. I highly recommend her. She is very attentive and thorough. Also, Bellus Academy is very affordable.
They are learning students so be patient with them on the time they take. Overall mine did a very good job on my nails for the time she took. They give a gift card remaining the Groupon balance. They are also very friendly. Will be going back! Update: I went for my hair twice now and they've done an awesome job!!!! Will be going back when my hair grows out a bit more :) Update 2: They now do not give the remaining Groupon balance on a gift card and it has to be used within a certain time (has expiration date)
Great hair salon, enjoyed my time being here, Mercedes was a really good and genuine stylist, I really recommend bellus academy !!
I appreciate the opportunity to have an amazing stylist who always listens to my suggestions and is not intimidated by the different hair textures staff and students are always very friendly and attentive with positive comments and also good attitude I hate the fact that they no longer service children under the age of 12 because my daughter loves to be pampered but we can wait until she’s of age until then I continue to come for the quality level of customer care and professionalism also the products
I went here about a week ago for a deep conditioning treatment and my hair look SO beautiful. I definitely recommend this salon :)
First time client. I Had a great experience with Thaila. I got a haircut and color. She listened to my concerns, and exceeded my expectations, I love it!!!!!!!! She was courteous and fun! I will definitely be coming back!
I feel very welcomed and love the care I’m getting ??

I love the team at Bellus Academy National City! This is second time and I'm so glad that everyone comes together to make the experience pleasant. Thank you Shana! Everyone loves the hair!!
First time coming here and it was awesome, I usually don't trust many hair stylist with my hair since ive gone to the same hair salon since I was born but my friend told me about this academy and I was like sure I'll give them a try, I do not regret making the decision will be coming here more often, just as a note if you are in a rush I recommend you make an appointment if not just letting you know they are students so they are getting experience at the same time, but they do get help from the teachers when they need it, awesome sauce people :)
I'm currently a student in the master makeup 602 Program and my experience has been great , the teachers are really nice and very knowledgeable about all things makeup , they are teaching us all the things we need to know to become successful makeup artist. Anyone whose thinking about becoming a makeup artist should definitely check out the master makeup program at bellus , you learn everything from special effects to bridal so it expands what you know about makeup and makes you better.
I was a student in there very first Makeup 602 program, an intensive in depth program which covers various makeup skills including, but not limited to, color matching, airbrush, special fx, makeup for Print and Film, mature makeup, and some hair styling.The instructors, Lily and Breanne, have a combined 25+ years of experience between the 2 of them working in bridal, print , commercial, film, and fashion. Their knowledge and lessons extend further then just makeup techniques, they also provide you with inside knowledge of the business side of the makeup industry. It was a fun and positive environment which I left feeling incredibly confident in my newly acquired skill set.
Leo is an amazing barber, she really takes care of me!!! Julissa did my braids! Overall, very pleased with the feeling of being treated as family!
If I could leave zero stars I would. I made an appointment 2 weeks ago to have my hair and nails done for my birthday party. I was very excited and wanted to look great for my party. Things took a turn for the worse... I received a call 1 hour before my scheduled appointment stating that nobody would be available to get me ready. Apparently nobody showed up for work or they overbooked and decided to leave me out to dry. I was so disappointed and still have not received an apology call. I'm not looking for any compensation but I feel my story needed to be shared.
Good service. Thila was patient and efficient, she's highly recommend
Although it's a school, the services are professional. I'm always satisfied.
I came to get a balayage today with Lolita ( in the morning shift ) and I'm so happy with the outcome . Definitely coming back ! I also appreciate that I didn't have to be here all day . Thank you Lolita !
I always come to this please I'm always very happy with the results afterwards with the students that are in this Academy but today I was very upset I felt that the teachers were great but when he came to the student Tiffany she didn't have any customer service I was never asked anything throughout my whole stay there I came in at 12:30 with my appointment and I didn't leave until 345 and not once did she ever start a conversation with me or even try to even speak to me not only that but she was not professional when he came to blow drying my hair she was about to send me out of the door with my hair very puffy and not done well at all I will be coming back but I will not ask for Tiffany again I think that she probably is a wonderful kid and probably a little bit shy but in this industry you have to have customer service other than that I do recommend to anybody that does want to come to Bellus Academy to come on in thy are Great the students are never left alone the teachers are always step-by-step with them and other than that that's all I have to say thank you for everything
Lynn was awesome n the teacher extremly helpful..carla the best ???
I arrived at my 10 minutes early since my appointment was at 5:15. There were two other women waiting since it was shift changeover. So we waited and waited and people were still checking in. Finally they started taking the clients. It was 5:35 and I was still waiting along with another lady who had a 5:15 appointment as well. Everyone that came in after us was already seated in a chair. I asked the lady at the front counter how much longer and she looked towards the floor and said "um I really don't know, she went to go find a band-aid. I can find out". I wouldn't have minded so much but not even a heads up of what was going on. How much longer would they have let me sit there if I didn't say anything? If I was 15 minutes late they would have cancelled me right away.
Had an awesome experience with my stylist. She made great conversation, was very confident and knew her products.. Can't wait to make my next appointment! Thank Thaila!! My stylist was very nice and careful to do exactly want I wanted and made my experience great
Jordan worked hard all on her own!!! She seemed to be a cosmetologist all ready!!!
The staff was effitient and friendly. I really enjoyed the light atmosphere of the entire place and the way everyone seemed to come together.
The people here are very kind and everyone who has worked on my hair did an amazing job! (:
Sherry was so patient! Never have a disappointing experience here!
Allan Jay A.
Christine Edlin was awesome! I had a silver hair that faded and the roots were already messed and she fixed it for me and looked amazing!
I love everytime I come here, which has been for years. The prices are good and the students are really fresh and passionate.
You can see the passion for their trade radiate off these students! They are meticulous and careful with their clients, so it may take longer than a salon service, but you really can't beat this price and expertise! The new Barbering program is so cool! Im excited that my boyfriend will never have to spend more than $5 on a haircut again!
I want to start off by saying, I will not be going to El Cajon or Poway location. At 10:55 am on 6/17/17, I went into Bellus Academy located 1073 E Main St, El Cajon, CA 92021, let's just say I was rejected at this location and also at the Poway location. Both schools told me to make a appointment in advance. So, on this same day 6/17 at 11:15 am I decided to call Bellus Academy located at 1520 E. Plaza Blvd. National City, Ca 91950. I was shocked how well they fitted me into there schedule. Phenomenal accommodation & service is the word I would like to use for this place. The bars are high at this place. Very professional over the phone, plus attentive to my hair needs, caring, pleasant and all around professional environment. I can truly say my 1st experience with Bellus Academy location in National City, Ca was the best experienced I had at any beauty school or in San Diego Ca. Starting from the receptionist, to the student (Erica Alcazar) and ending with the instructor (LaTonya Croom). Yes, I was extremely impressed how well my hair color turn out and my pinwheel braid was on point. Yes, the instructor is definitely their with the student and these two awesome lady definitely delivered what I requested. Definitely going back for a repeated experience.

Great job Macarena! Thank you!
Love it had a blast ????????????
Kyeara did a great job on my braids! Such great service and hospitality at Bellus Academy. Highly reccomend.
Had A great time while getting things done will be coming back and bringing my friends
London was great!
I have had an excellent experience with London, he did a Keratin on my hair...Thaila worked on my hair also...it looks, FABULOUS!!!!
Janelle did a great job on my Coppola treatment, loved my results.
Stephany Michelle G.
Came in to do a Coppola treatment & Amanda was my stylist. She did a wonderful job with my hair. I look forward to booking another appointment with her before she graduates. Thank you Amanda for taking the time with my hair. Stephany Guster
This is my 3rd visit to Bellus NC. It is convenient and close to my house. The students are focused on doing their best work possible under the supervision of their instructors. So far, I have had my brows, haircut and colored my hair. I have not been disappointed. Despit the road construction around the school and parking can be a challenge, I will be back again :-)
Bad school dont waste your time by enrolling to this school, Management only thinks about making money and are not worried about teaching the students on how to cut hair. No parking for student staff have plenty of parking if students use them they get you towed not a good school at all. they only have one great barber teacher on days and one on nights for to many students. DONT SPEND $20,000+ IN THIS SCHOOL NOT WORTH YOUR TIME OR MONEY.....
I've been here now twice. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. The front desk, Sam, is very personable and made scheduling an appt there at ease. You can't beat the prices. This is a school so you do have to wait but it honestly feels like you're getting fully pampered. It's worth the wait. The second time I came in which was today. I didn't get a cut just a got my hair shampoo, conditioned and straightened nothing too crazy this time around just wanted my hair to feel nice for Mother's Day. Even though it's one of there simpler services, Joy took her time. We had a pleasant convo all the while also making sure I was okay. I will definitely come again. Joy is so pleasant. She took her time with my hair especially since my hair is naturally thick, course and wavy but with the Joy's touch my hair feels amazing and silky smooth. Thank you Bellus. I have now recommended this place to many of my friends. ??????
Gemna did an amazing job on my hair.She flat iron and did a soft curl, it was gorgeous. I received so many complements, and the experience was great.
I'm a regular client of Bellus Academy, National City. Bellus has consistently shown me outstanding customer and styling services. Bellus earns 5-stars for service and value.
Bellus academy is amazing my first time I came I got a cute haircut by a great girl named Pricilla and I had to come back to get my color done by her. I love it here everybody is really friendly and nice. Thanks BELLUS!!! They have killer prices take my word or come see for yourself!
Alexis is awesome she did my hair Saturday I was scared to do the hair do but she chased away all my fears. Im looking forward to my next appointment.
Daisy Villa did a great job with my hair yesterday!
Got a great hair cut and keratin treatment here for a really good price. Myra was my stylist and she gave the most awesome scalp massage during while shampooing my hair. Awesome experience all around, very friendly people, and excellent service. I'll definitely be coming back on the future.
This is the first time writing a review and also coming to Bellus Academy. I have been to so many salons and could never fully appreciate the visit because it would always be the same or uneven haircut. Coming to Bellus Academy was the best experience I have ever had. Not only did I recieve a warm welcome, Brooke styled my curly hair! I learned many tips, she is so sweet and attentive to the customers. I am very pleased ????. I will be coming here more often and they offer many services, including mens haircut, waxing, nails, make-up and so much more! Prices are affordable too. Thank you Brooke for the wonderful experience!!
I was a client of Danielle vasquez I was not able to log into my google Account so she said I could use hers... My name is carolyn McCain I loved my experience here at bellus. I loved my hair would have spent three times as much any where else. My stylist did great work and I highly recommend thank you again!
Got a short to long layer by MaryAnne. She's Awesomeness! Got my hair difussed for the 1st time too & learned some new hair tricks for my curls. All over experience always great when I visit Bellus Academy National City.
I had a great experience at bellus. I was looking to get a hair cut for a while now so I was relieved when I called bellus and they could get me in the same day. Everyone was super friendly, great staff, receptionist was awesome also the instructor Mrs. Moe was so good at explaining my haircut to me and great and listening to my concerns and putting me at ease about my haircut before hand . She was very hands on and helped her student cristina out a great deal with my haircut . Thank you guys for being a good team and doing such a wonderful Job.
Being a college student, I not only come here for the affordable prices but the quality of service. I truly appreciate the extra extra time they take to teach me about my hair and cut it the way I like it. I have cut my hair here several times and keep coming back!
First time here Daniel did my hair!!! Told him the ideas I wanted and he did more than that.. my hair is just as I wanted it and even better!!! He was very profesional and friendly. I am going to keep coming to him. Finally found my new hair stylist!!! Thank you.
Arrived to my appointment and was seated immediately, that was nice!!! Daisy was my hair guru and she was awesome! Very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. I was hesitant at first because it is a beauty school, but I would definitely recommend my friends and family to come and try this place before spending tons of money! All the students are supervised by their teachers and every one is so nice. The place is very clean and they where nice enough to offer me water and snack. We did end up being there for close to 6 hrs due to the length of my hair, but it was worth it! I got my hair bleached and prepped for me to add a funky color. My hair is all the way to my waist and thin, never done anything to it. I appreciate Daisy for her great work! I love my new unvirgin hair, lol!
Came in today to get my hair done by Pam! She did and beautiful job! Everyone is super friendly and very welcoming I'm extremely satisfied with my experience (=
I love coming here to get my hair colored because they always get it right. London colored my hair a red/burgandt color and I absolutely loved it? Definately coming back :)
Totally recommend this place! Everyone was super nice and friendly:) Jessica did a great job!
London was so awesome, especially with the help of Daniel. I have long thick curly wavy hair. This is my second time coming here and it's honestly such a bargain!!! You do have to be super patient. Just eat before coming. I'll be coming here as long as I live in San Diego!
Great experience with my stylist Janell , she really took the time to help me understand how to care better for my hair. Thanks Bellus Academy!!
I love this place. People are friendly and professional. I Turku recommend this place.
Andrea was amazing...Thank you so much for the wonderful experience and getting me ready for the birth of my baby...she was such a sweetheart and made my the overall experience topnotch! I definitely be back.
London and Christina were the best! Super sweet, friendly and funny. They listen to their clients needs and know what they are doing. Very happy that I had them working on my hair today! :)
Adilene did such a great job on my haircut. I was in love with it.
I hardly write reviews, but this time I am going to do it. I want to thank Jose Marrokin for his excellent work at cutting my hair. As a guy, it is hard to find a good barber, but Jose was my best choice to date. I left the salon very happy with my haircut, customer service and excellent ability to cut my hair the way I wanted. Before I left I booked a man's facial with Jose for Saturday. That is how happy I was with his service. Also, I want to thank Angel. This guy really ROCKED my eyebrows. GUYS! man can also fix their eyebrows and still look masculine. Angel is super cool and very good at doing eyebrows. Make sure you go with him after you visit Jose. Thank you both for excellent service.
Love the work. Emily is just wonderful and let's me know about procedures done on my hair. Very pleased.
Amazing! London is fabulous!!! Great job on my color!!! ????????
(Translated by Google) Deseray thank you !!!!! (Original) Thank you Deseray!!!!!

My stylist Khay was very friendly and efficient in her work, one of my best experiences here
Great prices and great service. London is the best. He really did what I showed him on a picture as I wanted. I highly recommend him.

Heather & London did a great job once again!! My color came out fabulously & my flat iron was bone straight. The school is affordable and the students are professional.
It was my first time here and I definitely liked my experience.Angie did my hair and she hooked me up????I recommend her for anybody that wants to get they're hair done????
Bellus National City never disappoints! This evening I received a toner for my balayage by Jacquelyn Madrigal and I absolutely love it! Jackie was extremely professional and such a sweetheart! I am extremely satisfied and will continue to recommend everyone who needs their hair done to Jacquelyn! ????????
Kiki was awesome.
Its always a wonderful experience knowing that the students have such passion in what they do. Great job to all
Had the best experience with Suzie! Love my new color. Definitely coming back. Thank you Bellus Academy.
It had been at least 5 years since I last visited Bellus and I had always been satisfied A couple of months ago I visited Bellus to have my hair colored and styled and unfortunately I left very unhappy with the color, and the stylist, I planned not to return.. I decided to give Bellus another try so I booked another appt. for color, trim, blow-dry and flat-iron. My stylist was Melissa S. and she was great. She was pleasant, professional and had great customer skills. She did a great job coloring my hair and I have received so many compliments on how beautiful my hair looks. I'll definitely be back and will recommend Bellus to others. Thanks Melissa!!
I recieved great customer service from Angie Ruiz and London Bibo! I did not expect my hair to end up like this, it was very beautiful !
khay did a wonderful job. i like my hair now, this is the first time to color my hair, im happy.
London was amazing. He is so knowledgeable, and personable. It was awesome to get my hair done by him !! :) ????????

It's been great so far. Affordable and and awesome service.
Very good service.
Awesome experience, people are so nice and welcoming :)
I had a great experience here, the stylist I was originally scheduled to be with couldnt show up and Khay took my appointment and did a great job on my hair. She was very patient and precise and lightened my dark hair to a very pale blonde. Thank you!
London did an amazing job. I came in for a flat iron. He has great customer service with great professionalism. I am definitely coming back!!
Come check this place out!
I must say, patience is a virtue!! It took almost 5 hours but in the end, they were able to achieve the hair that I wanted!! Thanks Bellus! Thanks Ate Khaye!
Got color and highlights by Manny soto. Great experience! Helpful people and great vibes! Love my new hair!
When I first went in, I was actually there to just drop my Sister off for her appointment. As I was waiting, I learned that the price for a Men's haircut was only $5! What a steal. Now of course, you are putting your hands--er, hair---in a student's hands, but honestly when you see all the future barbers/hair specialists there, you can tell they put pride in their work. So risking the haircut was not a risk at all. It's just an overall good deal. My "Future Barber" as they call them, was CJ. He did a great job with a drop fade to the sides and back of my hair and paid great attention to the details of the shape up and trimming. He even connected my sideburns into my beard to give it a nice, clean look. At the time, they happen to also happen to have a free deep conditioning treatment with any haircut. Done deal. Looking forward to going back again, which I will do soon!
Awesome hair did from Khay!!!!! :) Thanks so much!
Khay did a wonderful job. I had gone to a different salon recommended to me by someone who I knew and the lady butchered it. Thankfully my people at bellus were able to turn an unfabulous disaster into a sexy hair cut. Highly recommend you come here. The staff is professional and will help you achieve your hair cut and hair style goals and unlike other hairstylists will actually listen and give you suggestions to help flatter your hair even more without arguing. Plus $10 for a haircut is good for the wallet.
I've been coming here since this place was called "College of Beauty". I have been recently getting the lux hair treatment, since my hair was very unhealthy. Ever since then I've been coming back for more. All the students that have worked on my hair have been very nice and extremely helpful! This is exactly why I keep coming back for more, when you go to get your hair done you don't just want a place to do your hair, you want someone to listen to you. Listen to how you want it done, and make connections. Today, I had London, he is such a wonderful student! I knew he actually cared. He seen my hair and mixed some more treatment because of the length, he took the time to wash my hair well and it was really relaxing after a stressful week! I tried the Sebastion treatment it smells so good! I also got a flat iron, London is very fast and sweet! His positive energy made my night! He was also very informative and gave me information on products for the future. I would definitely recommended this place to anyone.
I love this place! Quera the barber keeps me looking fresh!!! 5 stars!!!!
Hair done very nicely and soft with pleasant experience with the students (khay and London) professional done....Thank you guys
I love my hair. I definitely suggest you go for Khay! She really does a great job with hair colouring! Very nice and friendly environment! Will definitely come back!
Anna is great !!!!! Make your appointment with her today ! And desire to get you products ????????
Service was A M A Z I N G!!!!!!!!!!!! My first time ever trusting my hair in the hands of ' a student" and I DON'T regret anything From the amazing wash, to the color, and the FAB COLOR!!! I recommend my now two AMAZING Stylist London & Kay <3 ......Thanks Bellus I will be back (:
I went in to get a simple 1/4 inch trim. The hair stylist student who assisted me was very thorough and let me know what she was doing every step of the way, which was really nice. The consultation, hair wash and trim took almost 2 hours. She did a good job (not that I was doing anything extravagant) & I enjoy being pampered but really started getting antsy in that chair towards the last 30min! I'll be back but next time with a different stylist. Thank you Bellus!
It's been my second time here at Bellus and I have been more than happy with the results and service I have received here. London has been my hair stylist and he is absolutely AMAZING at what he does. His coloring skills and cuts are on point and I have officially stopped scouting around for my go to stylist! The products used at Bellus are top notch and my hair always comes out so beautiful and healthy looking when I leave. the first time I came here, my hair stayed silky for days and it was pretty amazing. Thanks so much Bellus and London for the best hair treatment I've had to date. Will continue coming here and I will definitely recommend London to ANYONE looking for their set stylist!!
Went to Bellus for the first time to get my hair darkened to its natural color & also for a trim/cut which also came with complimentary deep conditioning. Khay was great and very friendly - she also answered my various questions and gave me recommendations/tips. I'd definitely recommend her service and Bellus!
I had a great time. London Bibo is a great stylist. I'll definitely come back again ????
Have a great experience. Students are very nice and so are the instructors. Instructors are always there to help and guide students to attend to customers requests. Over great place.
Came in here to get an all over color not knowing really what color to get but my hairstylist Khay was very helpful and knew exactly what I wanted just by talking to her. The whole process was very nice and loved that she made sure I was ok with everything she was doing and the product knowledge was amazing and recommended products for me to try.
It's my first time here and i really loved the service! Khay really did a great job! She's so nice and very approachable. I'll definitely come back to her again to have my hair done.
Great staff..young lady at the front desk is fantastic!!!
Stacy is so awesome!!! She is super considerate and fun she will definitely take good care of you. If you want a good cheap hair cut go to Bellus Academy National City!!!! And for sure ask for Stacy she is the best!!!!!!
Great place and really friendly hair dresser his name is Andreas. He is patient and kind and is a good listener and knows what he is doing with my hair. I also like how he respected the way I wanted my hair done without trying to change my style.
Drove to San Diego to tour Bellus Academy in Poway, as well as National City. While in town I decided to get a trim at the National City location and had the best experience. Front desk people were super friendly and best of all, my stylist London was awesome! Absolutely in love with the cut and styling he did. I'll be coming back for sure!????
Sheila was awesome! Offered great customer service which is very important to me. The instructor guided her well and I got a great hair cut. I'll definitely be back and as long as she is available, I will ask for Sheila! Good job Bellus Academy! ????
Pamela helped me get rid of my unwanted highlights and it turned out so beautiful!! Everyone was extremely nice and gave me plenty of compliments. I will defiantly be back to get my hair shined and looking awesome!
Got my hair done so happy with the results and thanks to khay she did a great job, and as teenager she gives me some good thoughts how to treat life in the future.. to enjoy it with care and responsibly in anything under the sun. So cool lol!... Those ladies in infront desk are accommodating and awesome to my mom n to me all the time. One thing I notice a lady educator with eye glasses seems not so nice to us im not really sure why :(
Deidra colored my hair and did an excelent job. I needed a color and trim and loved it. Recommend Deidra anytime???? Thank you, awesome work.
I LOVE this place. My hair is always looking great when I'm done!
This was my first time coming in. I absolutely loved the service. I was really nervous to come in but I was specifically recommend to come in with someone and they really made me feel welcomed. I was aware of everything happening. I felt really involved ! Will definitely come back and recommend to everyone!

I've made the right decision to follow the recommendation of my friend to go here. Even though my hair hasn't done yet, I can feel that it will be perfect! All of staff were so approachable and nice! If you plan to go here, I would love to suggest to look for Kennete Khay. She's not just pretty but she will make you pretty!
I love my hair. London actually came to save the day because I was not happy with the person before him. He took the time to fix my hair and he actually cares about his clients. I will definitely be coming back to my super fabulous man.
It was an Awesome experience especially for a first timer here at Bellus Academy! I would definitely recommend it! Kenneth Khay did my hair and she really took good care of it.
I love the way Becky does my hair! I walk out feeling amazing! The look and feel of my hair is awesome! Come by Bellus and ask for her!! She's the best!!
I'm extremely satisfied with the results of my hair... I came out with a smiling face.. thanks to KennetteKhay n London your so awesome!
Hair done by London... Balayage done along with highlights on top... Love the turnout! Color is great!!
I have been here twice. The first time I came I got a haircut. Stacy did a great job, my hair looked and felt much healthier. The second time I came and got my hair dyed by Stacy. She did a wonderful job again. I feel like the students are careful and thorough and it means great results at a low price.
It was my first time coming in I was nervous but excited for my new look I was greeted by a gal named Jovanna. She was nice and extremely thorough with my hair and my care I would highly recommend her to anyone else she was so sweet and took her time as well. Thank you Jovanna love my visit.
I was really hesitant at first but everyone is so kind and they make sure you feel as comfortable as possible, London is so nice and funny and he did an amazing job on my hair i love it !
Sheila Marie A.

Daniela Ruiz-Jo (.
It is my first time as a client at a beauty academy. Becky did my hair and make up and she was awesome. Very patient and was able to give me the look I wanted even though I had no pictures or anything. Great experience. I would definitely come back.
YAAAASS LONDON SLAYED ME! Already set my appointment for my next visit. ????
I came here before & it took about 5 hours to do my hair, came back today to use my birthday coupon & honestly even if I didn't use my coupon, it's worth the money! My hair turned out so great, better than I expected because of my hair stylist suggested something better than I wanted. London & Jessica were the absolute best, they make you feel comfortable & have great conversations with you while they do your hair! They're also super funny! If you need your hair to be highlighted & done, always ask for London because I'll be coming back to ask for him again!
Like the experience everything was superb desseray was awesomeness!!!
I love my experience. London was the best! I will definitely schedule with him again.
Pam and Suzy did a terrific job today! My hair massage was amazing also love the service
Pam and suzy were super friendly there massage put me to sleep almost. Best customer service!
Bellus National city has alot of professional staff ready to be placed in a permanent place to show there craft. My barber is Quira Williams there she does a amazing job for me & my son's
London was great. I definitely enjoyed the scalp massage he did while washing my hair.
Sydney was an amazing! Teachers were so sweet and great environment.
Very conscious and diligent of their work, we'll supervise (thus chances of ruining your hair are all most null) friendly and the prices are great, I belive this to be a win win, they get the practice you save money
Love my Haircut & Keratin treatment, ,Khay & Suzie are so sweet, & nice will difinetely recommend Bellus Academy .????
Their customer service was welcoming and friendly. It fun to see how all the students are trying to learn off of eachother to improve. The student that cut my hair, Desire, was really sweet and explained to me the correct way to maintain my hai heathy. I would definitely recommend everyone to get any kind of beauty service here.
Briana was great in understanding what i wanted done to my hair and was very patient me, all the ladies & gents were also very fun and just a great environment.
Quera @bellusacademy in National City is always hooking my hair up. If I get it cut by anyone else here or in Los Angeles, it doesn't even look the same. So if you need a dope barber, go see her at Bellus in National City. #bellusacademy #femalebarbers
Khay has provided me with excellent customer service and has made me feel really comfortable. I'm glad two of my sisters recommended me here
I was looking all over to get my hair done. I wanted something different. My brother from hawaii mentioned to me about Bellus Academy. I read the reviews and called for an appointment. I was greeted nicely at the front desk. I chose Desiree. I got a haircut from her last week and came back today for colors. I must say that her instructors Latara and Danny are very nice and helpful. And I will be coming back to see Desiree again. Thank you guys.
Thank you, London for making me look super fly! I came in here with crazy faded gunky mermaid hair & now I look & feel like a beautiful human again! I will DEFINITELY be coming back. London rocks!
I have brought my second granddaughter in because the results for my first granddaughter were amazing. We are biracial and I was a little skeptical when they called London to do her hsir...LONDON IS THE BOMB! He is doing my second granddaughters hair right now for her graduation tomorrow. Not only is London the bomb...this place rocks. Everyone is friendly, music working...a fun place to be...I'm next. PLEASE COME in...Ask for London!!! #BellusAcademy
London was great I love his personality he's so hot !! And my hair looks great...
At night they messed up my hair but during the day they made it better! Ana is funny and chill! Good looks ??
Really loved my experience here! They made my fantasy become reality in hair terms. Definitely, going back!
Always a great experience at Bellus academy! Desseray thank you so much for helping me take out my braids && by help I mean you taking them out and making me laugh. Lol ????
I was greeted in a friendly manner and they were very attentive to my needs defiantly recommend anyone to come by they're great ????

Marylou De Los S.
Excellent service! Vibrant personality! Sydney is a "must" to have! U ought to be very proud of her. My big thanks! Feel a transformed woman.
My Hair looks great! Thank you Adilene! I'll be back soon ????
My experience here has been good. I have been coming here for a long time and have gone hey a lot of students some okay and some better than others but for a quick wash and flat iron it's cheap.
This is the best school I've been to in San Diego. I travel for El Cajon to bring my daughter here????
I have been getting the Coppola Keratin treatment since Nov. Love the results. Today, I am trying the Nixion scalp treatment.
Always very good service. I have been coming here for about 30 years. Students are eager to learn. The instructors are great. The reception service is always warm, friendly and courteous.
Bellus Academy is the right place to go for the right price, and the environment is great I love them.
Getting my hair color I'm super excited!! The young lady is very professional. Her teacher is well trained and helped me decide on a color and look!!! I will definitely be coming back
I just want to give Kudos for the Head Staff there!!! They have 2 beautiful Instructor's/Directors who provided on hands assistant for a Tech who was doing my hair. Bellus Academy needs to "Bless" both of them with a $$$ Bonus.
I'm always down to support the students at Bellus, working there way towards their future.
Please Kill M.
The people are very kind and my hair looks great!
This place is great. Want a new look with out the fear of if it will turn out just like u want? This is where to do it at. I came here n left looking awsome. Students are shadowed by their instructors thru every step. Which makes it super comforting.
Everyone at Bellus is so helpful. The students and teachers make great recommendations on services. Try the lux oil hair treatment, it's awesome.
Vivianna Martinez did a great job on my hair she pick out a great color for me. I'm very happy how my hair color looks now .beautiful thanks vivianna you did a great job.....will be back again.......
I arrived before 5 pm. My appointment was scheduled for 5:15pm. I spent 5 hours there, which is understandably due to the fact that these are students. I went in for a hair color, blow-dry, & dry hair cut (layers). My initial consultation the teacher told the student to give me a dry cut due to the type of hair that I have. The student was very nice, professional, & accomodating. I can not say the same for the teacher Lori. She was so unprofessional & rude & condescending. She came over around 9:45 while the student was rinsing my hair stating the student will give me a dry cut. When I asked why she stated the shears are for wet cutting only. I asked if the student can borrow dry cutting shears from another student. She stated all the students have the same shears. However, I have 2 ladies sitting next to me getting dry cuts. Did she not think I was going to notice that. I am sure the teacher who made the consultation new what type of shears the academy carry. Also, my sister got her hair done & also received a dry cut with no problems on Saturday. When I pointed that out to her she could only say she is the educator there & that the student can risk damaging her shears. How about being honest & stating the truth. Lori plopped herself at the front desk "talking" with staff instead of making sure that the students were on task & being mindful of time management. I felt she was a bullied to tried to force me into a wet cut after I informed her I have never had a wet cut due to the texture of my hair. She obviously does not respect the clients needs. If you close at 10pm make sure to at least do rounds by 9pm to make sure the student does not need help. Thank god a hispanic teacher came out to help otherwise I would have not gotten a hair cut which I paid for!!! Also, she needs to be sent to managment training/etiquette because instead of making the students feel comfortable they all look terrified, escpecially with the way she spoke to them. Professor Lori should learn to apologize to clients to make them want to return. When I mentioned the hair cut was paid for she did not even offer a refund on the hair cut. Rude!!! I would never want to book another appointment when Lori is on the floor.
I Love how everyone is so sweet and nice? First time here,will come again. Thanks to Stephanie she did a great job .?
This was my first time ever coming to the academy & it was definitely a great one! Not only did I get a chance to do some catching up w my girlfriend, everyone was very sweet and accommodating. The students are very attentive and patient. They listened to exactly want I wanted and delivered flawlessly!
bellus academy in national city has greatt service and vibe. everyone is so nice. especially jasmine guzman a really outgoing nice peron i would suggest her to you
Love the vibe here especially Jasmine Guzman a very nice person and very outgoing while doing your hair.
Trying to go natural so I went to have my straight ends cut. The student Shelia with the green hair was very nice and made sure all went well!! I didn't get my wet-set because we ran out of time, but I love my cut!'
Stephanie H did an amazing job I love my hair. She did exactly what I wanted.
Desseray Uribe completely transformed my hair! Before, my hair was so poofy I looked like Dora the Explorer. Now, I have a sleek a-line cut that looks and feels so much healthier. I would highly recommend visiting Bellus National City. I brought my dad with me, and they even had time to cut his hair too! Now we're both on fleek. Thanks guys.
Becky Moreno did an awesome and amazing job on my hair. Very professional. She layers on red into my hair came out beautifully, I'm so happy with how it came out. She is the only one I will go to from now on. Keep up the great work.
I am a Bellus Alumni and I have to say I am extremely happy with my education at Bellus. We did all kinds of events such as FWSD, Bridal Bazzar, etc. I was thrilled because I was able to get live experience and was able to earn my school hours. The staff is super friendly and truly help by giving you clients and helping you build your confidence, and the instructors are caring and are down to earth.They have a lot of patience and help you keep motivated. They also teach you any kind of service in many ways, but most importantly, a way that YOU will understand it. I am now licensed and working, couldn't have made a better choice !! Thank you DANNY DIVITO (Daniel) I LOVE YOUR WORK!!! You helped me understand the layered hair cut in a jiffy!!
I love going to school here! Everybody is so helpful and the staff is amazing!
We have the best students
Love coming to school here! I've only been here for less than 2 months and I have learned so much. Learning has never been so much fun and the educators and students are so generous and helpful! :)
Becky Moreno is by far extremely talented in hair and makeup. I gave her an idea for hair color and I am in love it. I have even had her makeup services she is so amazing and I felt beautiful! Thanks Becky!! PS the staff and teachers are friendly and they are very hands on
My school is the best!
Coach Netty B.
Desseray hasn't been able to take clients yet but she will be an amazing stylist. Very outgoing and cares about her clients. Plus her shampoos are the best.
I loved this School Netty Brooks Hooked up My Hair !
Very fun learning environment! Everyone is like family and truly cares about your success. It is definitely the best school to attend to become a licensed cosmetologist
Kenneth Hummel P.
You get what you pay for. It was not a bad experience, but a very slow one which requires patience and understanding that a student is cutting your hair.
Absolutely love my new hair color! They did such an AMAZING job, there are no words
I love Jesus! I don't have an account so I'll use his.
Called a week in advance for my hair appointment for my best friends wedding they called me the day before to reconfirm and said it was ok to reschedule to 10 instead of 1030 then they called me the DAY OF to me me I need to reschedule for later ... Like 3 hours later!!!!! Why would I make my appt for 10 and have to reschedule for 3 his later?! TERRIBLE TERRIBLE SERVICE dont let this be your first second or even third choice you might have to reschedule!
I have been meaning to write this review for over a month but better late than never. Erin did my hair, she did a great job. She really took her time and made sure that I left happy. Erin was very knowledgable and gave me a lot of great advice on how to deal with my hair/scalp. She also recommended future services that may be helpful.
I've known this place for long because I always lived in national city. I really loved being Monicas's client , very nice and understanding with their comments . I like the way they give you advice for your hair or any type that has to be for your convenience in getting to be beautiful.
I am a regular customer here. My stylist is Rahmat. She has a thirst to learn and is extremely competent. She's amazing!
Awesome! Julianna is great! Sweet and professional. Even when I wasn't to sure what to ask for, she is very patient and will work with the client to see that they are happy with the end result.
I came in for a hair cut and thought it would be like any other; Ithe was actually the best hair cut I've had in years!! I feel and look great, my hair looks healthy and feels so smooth. I would recommend Bellus if you want to look and feel wonderful!!
As soon as I walked in to Bellus Academy National City, I got greeted with a warm smile and attended quick. The cosmo student that trimmed my hair was neat, on task and left my hair on fleek(: I would highly recommend visiting Bellus Academy , very satisfied .
I had the most amazing hair cut in my life, everybody was so professional and nice. Highly recommend this place.
Having a great experience:)
Every time I walk into Bellus National City I am greeted with a smile and instantly feel welcome! The front desk ladies are so polite and the students are so talented! I went to get a haircut by Kuleah and she did a fantastic job. I was very pleased with my cut and will definitely go back sometime! It was nice learning from the instructor as my hair was being cut. It was a learning process for both the student and myself. It's definitely worth the wait!
I've had services such as highlights, straightening treatments, deep conditioning etc and each time the students were very pleasant and did a great job!
My hair turned out perfect! Everyone was awesome! Casey is perfect !
First time for a hair color and it was a great experience. Maricela was a great stylist. I will be back.

I got my hair deep conditioned and styled. Left feeling fabulous!
I love the staff here especially Karla - she is FANTASTIC - wanna feel like a million bucks??? Without spending a million??? Then go and get your hair done by the students at Bellus.
The teachers are friendly, great service and the prices are outstanding:) I love coming here. The same student does my hair and she does a great job. My flat irons are real good. The instructors are always near by to check on students. Bellus also carries products you can buy to take home. I come almost every two weeks because the service is very good
My time is precious. I love the teachers and the students.
Customer service is great. The students listen to what i have to say on how I want my hair done and I leave with a smile. Wish I could take them home.
I went in for the first time and had a great experience. I requested a hair cut that might have been a bit challenging, but my stylist Brandon Marquez was able to pull it off. Under the guidance of a great instructor I left feeling completely cool, and with a great impression of the talent at Bellus. Thanks again.

La Tasha T.
Shelley did a good job
I have been coming here for many years! I've had relaxers, coloring, highlights, flat irons, conditioning, a roller set, and haircuts done here. It's great experience for the students, a great service at very reasonable prices. Occasionally it might take someone a bit longer, but keep in mind that you are seeing a student!. Today, I had a very involved Coppola treatment done. There are many processes, but Erin S. handled it like a pro!!! Even though there's a lot to it, she smiled and made us both laugh throughout. She made the experience enjoyable and with exceptional results! Ask for Erin!
I love it here! Everyone is so great and always helpful and polite especially Johnny. I come regularly for deep conditioning and flat irons and I'm always happy with the service. This time I got my hair ombré colored and love it! Thanks Johnny!!!!
Love this place discounted everything

I came in for a touch up on my roots and she suggested a red gloss. Daniel the instructor was fabulous too. Making sure that my layered hair cut was on point. Best of all, is the price. Happy customer here.
The stylist was very nice & did just a great a job as a more expensive stylist.

Bellus academy national city ????
As a current student of Bellus Academy, this school has exceeded my expectations of the education I was going to receive. The instructors genuinely care what information their students are soaking up and instead of rushing students in and out of the school, they ensure that their graduates will stand amongst the elite when looking for employment in the beauty industry.
Front desk are so bubbly :)
has a welcoming environment and great people!
Love this place...They are very helpful an keep you well updated on the things that make your hair healthy! Very nice an fun place to get you hair done!
I'm currently a student here at our National city campus. I've never really been into sitting in class and going to school but coming here is very welcoming. Teachers are very encouraging and supportive. Being at this campus it feels like a family everyone is very welcoming. Gyannah has cut my hair many times and is very great she's very into making sure it's the cut you want.
Its a great place!!! The people are friendly and their work is awesome.
I love being apart of a great team.. So much talent in one room.. Can't wait to see where this school takes me!!
Best school ever ..
My name is Jen and I have been into National City School of Bellus Academy on Plaza Blvd a total of 3 times this summer,and i will be back as needed for all my hair care needs When you enter the salon you are greeted with a warm smile by NATALIA (she is your experience coordinator to set up the perfect stylist for all the services you request )From a light trim and paraffin wax gloves to soften my hands. To having foil high lites put in my wavy short hair. to having a precision cut and texturizing by one of the students under the strict guidance from the professional floor instructors who trained at Vidal Sasson. They use high quality products and each student working on the floor has had multiple hours of cut,color,blowouts and styling.The prices are great, If you bring a friend, you both get a discount.They sell high end hair care shampoos,conditioners and styling aids. They also do nail care full set gel tipped nails and makeup application for your special event.The are open in the evening hours which makes it convenient for stopping in after work. Also open Saturdays so you can book an entire day of beauty!

I have been coming here since I was five. They have taken such good care of my hair. Ask for Roxy, she washes hair so good you will want to take her home. Thanks Bellus!!!
i loved how they asked what you prefer , making sure the experience is enjoyable for you.
Shout out to Alicia great Job!!!
I love coming and getting the services. The front service team is welcoming and so sweet. The students are dedicated to providing excellent customer service and high quality services. My hair has improve since I started getting the conditioning treatment. Yes, they take a little longer, keep in mind is a school. However the student take genuine care and effort to making you look happy and pretty and the instructor are constantly walking to check if students are happy or if customers have questions. I love they always greet me by name and a with a big smile. My favorite beauty spot for pampering me time or any other event. :)
