Bell Mar has been around and accredited for nearly 26 years. You can't be a scam/diploma mill and be around that long. You won't be accredited or eligible for US Dept of Education financial aid, as Bel Mar is, for long if you truly are a scam school.

Bell Mar's owners have, in the last couple years experienced the deleterious effects of aging we may all experience. Subsequently, in the last couple of years the school has not be run as well as it had in the past.

Bell Mar is now open under new management (as of 6/9/10) and I invite any recent graduate with complaints to return and discuss them with me. We will do our best to correct any deficiencies in your education.

I also invite any prospective students to come in and see how we are doing at 5717 W, Cernak Rd, Cicero Il 60804.

Pros: Good and getting better

Cons: Not perfect yet

Please do your research if you plan to attend cosmetology School especially this one & especially if your planning on going mornings. This school is all about the money they could't care less if you learn or not. their mission statement is a bunch of crap. They don't even have a stable teacher they can't keep them long enough till a student graduates. During my 18 month course I went through 10 teachers(I'm not exaggerating) They are so cheap that they even have students teaching other students so they don't have to pay for a teacher. Tuition is like $8200 but expect to invest way more because they only give you 2 kits that include a cheap dolll head other cheap stuff & they expect you to make it last for 18 months. You might learn how to give a decent cut if you can get a costumer but there's barely ever any costumers and when one does show up the students are to scare to give them a cut because they are not learning much so they feel intimidated. All those licenses they have on the walls? bunch of crap. like 2 teachers actually work there the rest are just there for decoration. If you plan to attend this school you definitely pass, you'll never have to study because the test are open book and if you don't use your book and you get a wrong answer dont worry the teacher will just change your answer. everything about this school is a fake from the supposedly lesson plans to the teachers, to the students grades,even the fake library. The library is the owners wife's office which includes books from 50 years ago come on! I'm glad I'm done with this school. Soon i will take my licensing exam and thanks to the cosmetology book and a teacher that only lasted a few months i did learn what i needed to learn in order to pass the exam. I'm sure i will pass but i know that it will be because i actually put the effort, studied,and didn't accept the fake grades i was given and did the work fair and square.

This is a nice place. They offer haircuts by thier students. The price is very cheap, but of course, your getting your hair cut by students. I don't think I would go to school here, as it doesn't seem they make good teachers. The way they cut hair is horrible. They can't even get a straight cut across. If you were to ask for something complicated, i'm not sure what you would get!
