    Want to Become a Top Hairdresser?

     How to Be a Hairdresser Extraordinaire!

    So you want to become more than just your average hairstylist? Here’s one way it’s done!

    We’ve all heard the stories;  The new graduates; “When I arrived at my first job, I realized I barely knew the basics of hair cutting or hair coloring let alone chemical services!  Salon owners; ” Stylists right out of school seem to always require more hands on learning, it’s like we need to teach them everything!

    Professional excellence in the beauty industry is a treat to see! And, it can only be earned with a lot of hard work, dedicated passion, and an overall love for the business! To achieve excellence in any given industry requires that extra added ‘something’ that the average person isn’t willing to do. And, one place we recently saw some of these top  professional trend setting hairdressers was at, The North American Trend Vision Awards.

    This year more than 900 hairdressers entered this prestigious competition. Hairdressers from all across America and Canada competed for the Gold, Silver and Bronze medals in 3 categories; Color,Young Talent and Student.  The winners of the Gold for the U.S. were  Matthew Hom for Color, Kelsey Deuel forYoung Talent and Gloritza Aviles for Young Talent.  They will go on to represent the United States at the International Trend Vision Awards on Oct. 28, in Madrid, Spain.

    The Bellus Academy, a leading cosmetology and wellness educational institute, made a BIG mark at the 2012 Awards. Bellus Academy educators, Matthew Hom and Carrera Bailey, took the gold and bronze medals, for the color competition. Matthew is the Master Cosmetology Manager at the Poway, Ca. Bellus Academy and Carrera Bailey is the Director of Color for the all of their Academies.

    All cosmetology schools are not created equal! There are plenty of horror stories as well as many excellent schools with great programs and dedicated staff. Looks like Bellus Academy is doing a lot of things right! Find a school like this for your education or advanced training, and they will give you the resources needed to become one of the best in the business! Make your education an excellent one!

    “We are thrilled as the Bellus Academy to have our Educators compete at this elite professional level and gain the recognition as the best in the United States,” said Lynelle Lynch, President of Bellus Academy.“This recognition reinforces our vision that the role of the Educator is the elite career inspiring both professionals and students with creativity and passion for the Beauty Industry.” 

    “It is so important to share passion—and that’s what Trend Vision is all about. We have a group of VERY passionate stylists who enter every year. Recognizing them on stage, seeing them do the best they can, pushing their career forward—it’s so exciting,” says Carol Protat, Director of Education for Wella Professionals, Sebastian Professional, Nioxin and Clairol Professional.
