Our Chula Vista Campus

In July of 2018, our National City school was permanently relocated just a few miles down the road to our new Chula Vista location. This new 13,000 square foot facility is nearly three times as large as the old school and features new program offerings to accommodate our growing community!

Overview of Our Programs

Cosmetology

Our Cosmetology program includes professional training in all aspects of the beauty industry. The program includes an iPad, where much of the curriculum is taught in conjunction with a social learning experience. Our salon floor gives students the experience needed to develop their craft and work with clients. We also offer advanced Cosmetology programs.

Barbering

Bellus Academy’s carefully curated barbering program offers a multidimensional education that highlights the various aspects within a growing profession. Our accomplished educators and industry experts use the Bellus proprietary system to teach men’s grooming trends, shaving, and haircutting through visual, verbal, written, and hands-on instruction.

Make-up Artistry

We have partnered with Make-Up Designory to offer our Make-up Artistry course, which can be taken in conjunction with other programs or as a standalone in California campuses. We are one of the only academies to offer a professional make-up course at this level.

Esthetics

Our Esthetics curriculum covers a variety of skin care techniques ranging from facials, chemical exfoliation, hair removal, microdermabrasion and more. We offer advanced programs that will allow you to wow employers in luxury and medical spas. Bellus Academy is proud to be selected as the first U.S. School to partner with CIDESCO, recognized as the world’s most prestigious qualification in the field of Esthetics, to offer a specialized certification in Skin Care.

Barber/Cosmetology

Our Barber/Cosmetology program leads to dual licensure for students and is designed to give our graduates a competitive edge, as we teach the business-side of the industry including retailing, sales techniques and budgeting. Our curriculum includes technical training along with state board prep.

Spa Nail

Our Spa Nail program is the first in the nation to go beyond the basics of manicuring, adding the spa treatment training demanded by luxury salons and spas.
