Bellus Professional and NickEducation have collaborated to introduce Bellus.Inspo.Pro; a new platform providing cosmetology and barbering students with a content-rich, ever evolving online education portal. The development of Bellus.Inspo.Pro was led by Nick Berardi and Diego Raviglione.   

The initial site will contain more than 30 proprietary Bellus Academy curriculum videos showcasing Bellus Academy award-winning educators and will evolve to feature more than 100 professional step-by-step video tutorials led by elite professionals from around the globe.  The portal content is exclusive to Bellus students and content ranges from cutting and color to hair extensions, lash extensions, barbering and more.

Bellus Professional Artistic Director Diego Raviglione says Bellus.Inspo.Pro is a powerful differentiator in curriculum delivery and showcases the quality and creativity of Bellus educators and partners throughout the industry. “Beyond delivering emerging education in a real-time environment optimized for mobile access, Bellus.Inspo.Pro will also facilitate competitions for students and support collaboration between extern salons, alumni and professional partners,” Raviglione says.

Remarking on the powerful possibilities, Nick Berardi of NickEducation stated, “Bellus Academy is implementing a powerful tool that will unify all of its students and top educators in a community that stays at the forefront of professional development and creative excellence.” He adds that Bellus.Inspo.Pro is a platform that will provide students with advanced techniques from both the Bellus Academy educational team as well as icons in the Industry. “Bellus.Inspo.Pro is a dynamic, evolving and perpetually available resource connecting the student to a community of artists seeking new levels of excellence,” he said.

The INSPO.PRO content will be offered to Bellus Academy students who can continue to use the resource as alumni through a subscription offer. “Bellus.Inspo.Pro continues to elevate Bellus Academy’s reputation and position as an academy invested in supporting students throughout their careers with ongoing education that is both relevant and revolutionary,” says Lynelle Lynch, owner of Bellus Academy. “We are honored to join forces with NickEducation to be the first school to offer this comprehensive and sophisticated approach to mobile education.”
