Facts About Us
short story of our hair salon
Bella Amici Salon first opened in 2004 and our wonderful staff has been making Bel Air beautiful ever since. Our clients enjoy a stress-free haven at Bella Amici thanks to our wonderful staff. Our staff is trained in the latest styles and techniques within the beauty industry. They change lives daily by acting as Dream-Givers and Day-Makers. Bella Amici continues to broaden our stylists’ skills and knowledge through attending mandatory classes in New York City, Washington D.C., and Chicago. Attending International Beauty shows and hosting regional educational classes in our salon shows our commitment to learning as a leader in the salon industry. This also ensures our clients receive the best fashion advice and most recent styles.
As a leader in the community it is a great joy to host our annual Bark-Aid charity fundraiser which provides financial assistance for local animal shelters and we are looking forward this year to working with a local program that places service dogs with combat veterans. As we enter our 15th year of service we are excited to expand our Bella Amici family and are so proud of the valued relationships we have grown over the years.
