The new attraction at Bella Salon: Melody 11/6/2011

Melody is one of the smartest hair stylists in Austin and she has great intuition on what needs to be done to a hairstyle to keep it updated and flattering. She's fantastic with color as well. Her consultations are very holistically informed and produce the best results for the client taking into accont complexion, hair color and sense of style, to name a few. She is an expert in her profession and is well trained in the lastest trends in hair fashion. I trust her instincts with stunning and gorgeous results. She is a real asset to a fabulous salon like Bella! more

Jason is a Great Stylist with Cali Flare 9/24/2011

My first visit to Bella salon was over a month ago. I was scheduled with Jason after explaining to the receptionist that I had short hair and wanted an expert cut. Jason, also known as Deville, is a large tattooed body-builder. At first I thought, oh great, this might not be good. He spent over 10 minutes asking me questions about my style, life and haircut desires; after this, I was at ease. His professionalism and expertise were apparent in the consultation and throughout the haircut. I have short hair with many cowlicks, and a bad haircut can be disastrous. If the haircut's not funky enough, I'll look like an old maid. If it's not precise, I'll look like I just visited Supercuts. When Jason was done, I was pleasantly surprised. He's the best Austin hairdresser I have ever used. Previously I got my haircuts with an expert stylist at Jackson Ruiz and Salon Intuitions. I must say that both places have great stylist (I always received a satisfactory haircut), but they lacked in creativity. Overall, I highly recommend Jason; he has over 20 years experience and has a California flare that most Austin stylist are missing. Don't be afraid, you will be in good hands. more

Great Service from Raquel 4/14/2011

I've been getting my hair cut at Bella for about a year now and its a great place. Raquel has been cutting and coloring my hair and she is fantastic! She is so sweet and is very good at what she does. Recently she asked if I would like to try the feather extensions, and I said I would try them out. Raquel had a good selection of color and length and she put them in quickly. I really like them and its a fun flair to my normal style. I have gotten many compliments on them and I'm glad Raquel brought it up! more


Before discovering the phenomenal hair colorist, Raquel, at Bella, I had been every shade of blonde that exists including platinum, ash, and most recently strawberry blonde/red/pinkish. All of this to try and cover my dishwater (and now graying) natural color. Since moving to Austin from Houston, I've tried several salons and hairstylists and was never pleased with the results - until now. I discovered Bella Salon and most importantly, I found Raquel Hurtado, a true miracle worker. Raquel actually studied my hair and talked with me (and listened) for a long time before she ever started mixing hair color. All I had dared to hope for was color correction from the many mistakes that had been made long before I found Raquel. The bottom line - I left the salon with beautiful, shiny warm blonde hair. Incredible. Raquel is not only a highly skilled colorist, she is also an artist. And the bonus? She is a sweet, honest, down-to-earth lovely person. Bella Salon and Raquel - excellent. more

Go to Bella & see Raquel!!! 9/20/2010

Simply fantastic salon -- any way you slice it. Seriously - it is hands down the best salon I have ever been to. I moved to Austin in 2006, leaving my previous salon back in Houston. I have never been one that is eager to try out a new salon... let's face it - the first visit is typically excruciating ... sitting in the chair as some perfect stranger begins snipping away at YOUR HAIR -- something that will remain on your head long after you exit their doors -- whether you like it or not. If you're like me, my first time at a new salon is typically spent engaging in mindless small talk while bracing myself for the tragedy that will likely be my head when it is all over. NOT AT BELLA!! From the moment I spoke with Raquel (the genius of all that is hair)... I knew I was going to walk out of there a happy camper - and that is exactly what happened. As soon as I sat down, Raquel asked me what EXACTLY I would like done -- and she actually LISTENED and knew what I was talking about. I highly, HIGHLY recommend Raquel to anyone who values their appearance at ALL .. ha, but seriously -- she's amazing and I can assure you that you won't be disappointed. As far as price is concerned -- which, unfortunately is an issue for most of us -- Bella is an up-scale salon ... as such, they have up-scale prices. However, I would like to offer some food for thought, if you will... How much would you say you spend elsewhere (at least as far as personal appearance is concerned?) :: clothes - yes, the outfits you only wear ONCE, shoes, accessories, etc. Now think about this logically... your hair is probably one of the ONLY things that is STUCK ON YOUR HEAD. Rain or shine, going out or staying in, studying, going on a date, reading a book, skipping in the park, sleeping... yeah -- you get the idea. Moral of the story -- Bella Salon is phenomenal. I highly recommend Raquel -- but, I have never seen someone leave that place looking like a fool. Cheers. more

Raquel is simply the best !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 9/15/2010

Just started going to Bella. My stylist is Raquel, she is absolutely the best stylist. She is extremely knowledgeable and has a great personality. Raquel has given me the best advice regarding what to do with my hair. Which by the way, was extremely unruly when I first came to her. I have very thick hair and lots of it. Raquel recommended the Keratin treatment which I decided to try. I can't believe the end result. It was so amazing. .I definitely will do it again. I am so lucky to have found Raquel because she really cares about what you want. I always leave feeling wonderful and happy with the outcome of Color, cut, style etc... Thks. Raquel for all your patience when working with my hair. more

Raquel Rocks the Bella House!!! 6/15/2010

Raquel has done my hair for over 8 years. I wouldnt let anyone else touch it! I feel so lucky to have found her in a city this big with so many other stylists competing for a client's business. However, you are everything but ""Just a client"" when you go to see Raquel.I have never felt rushed out of her chair. She books her appointments to allow plenty of time to ask what you want, your particular style, the way you style your hair, etc. Dont know what you want? She can help you with that too! I am one who likes to change my style and color often. I have been trendy, professional, choppy, short,long, layers, you name it, she's helped me achieve it! I've gone from a beautiful brunette to a brilliant red all the way to my favorite blonde highlights. I get endless compliments and have sent many friends and colleagues to her with confidence. Raquel is very knowledgeable of the color line and all the products within the salon, and trust me, there is a ton of them. Bella is fantastic, Raquel is amazing!!! Go find out for yourself, you won't be disappointed=) Pros: Beautiful Salon, Reasonable Price, Fun!! Cons: Nope more

Top Notch Service 4/14/2010

I have been seeing April, my stylist for a little over a year now, and she is just the best. I am always in the mood for some sort of change with my hair and she always gives her honest opinion, even if it isn't what I would like to hear. She has my hair in my mind and the health of my hair which I appreciate. more

I highly recommend Bella and Raquel 3/3/2010

I would absolutely recommend Bella salon to everyone. I see Raquel there...she is AMAZING! When I leave my hair always looks perfect. She does exactly what I ask her to do. She is very profesional and I always feel pampered when I leave. Like I said she's AMAZING! more

Would Recommend To Anyone and everyone 2/4/2010

April my stylist, always makes my haircut her commitment.\r Always thorough to fulfill my requests, and always has\r valuable input.\r Pros: Amazing Staff and Atmosphere more

Lindsay Sessions @Bella 1/14/2010

Originally, I found Lindsay at Joie de Vie, but I think this salon is a much better setting. People compliment my hair very often, but this was not the case before her. I have been going to Lindsay for over a year and a half and have gone through several different styles with her. I am not that great at voicing the details of what I want (I mean, I go to a stylist b/c I have no idea what's going on), but she always sets me right. Also, I have never received any sort of high maintenance cut from her. Many of my friends have also started going to her and it has become very evident that she knows what she is doing. No matter what your face or hair type is, I promise she will make it fit you perfectly. Seriously, I promise. oh yeah, the shampoo and head massage is pretty amazing also :) Pros: magician with blades Cons: ... more

Lindsey at bella salon 1/5/2010

Lindsey has been doing my hair for a while now. She always listens to me even though i sometimes want what i cant have. dont we all. she is honest with me and tells me what will and will not work with my hair type and facial features. i always leave looking and feeling fabulous! give her a try! you wont regret it! Pros: such an amazing hairstylist! Cons: none! more

Tiffany Hardwick Gets It Right EVERY Time!! 10/6/2009

Tiffany really listened to what I wanted and then asked questions (like how long do I take to style my hair in the mornings), and then suggested what she thought would be best. She was right on target with the color and cut/style. From now on I'm just going to tell her to do what she wants. Watching her finishing up an updo before my appt. has me looking forward to the holiday parties. I'm scheduling Tiffany as soon as I get my first Christmas party invitation, and I have her scheduled for New Years Eve! Pros: Extremely Talented & Professional Cons: Have to schedule ahead, but she is sooo worth it! more

molly @ bella salon 8/31/2009

molly @ bella salon gave me an amazing haircut that I am complimented on everyday. She was able to give me a cut that brought out my best features. She did my hair very artistically and I love it! I would highly recommend molly! She also recomended the perfect products and they work great for me. My hair looks fabulous. Thank you molly! Pros: best haircut ever!! more

My Best Massage Ever was by Shelby at Bella Salon 8/31/2009

I was lucky enough to have scheduled an appointment with Shelby Autrey at Bella Salon and while I knew somehow that she was going to be good, I had no idea that she would provide the best massage I've ever had (and I've had many massages)! Shelby is knowledgeable, intuitive, and made sure to ask me all the right questions to provide me with just what I needed. Wow! Pros: Best Massage in Town more


About a week ago i went into Bella for my first time to see long time stylist Steven Taylor. Immediately when i walked into the salon I felt at home. The mood of the salon is very calm and tranquil. I sat down in Steven's chair and explained to him the problem with my hair. My other stylist didn't have any suggestions to help me with my hair, and would always just ask what i wanted; when in actuality, the reason i came to a hair stylist is to tell me what to do with my hair. I have really stubborn gray hair's that won't take color. He suggested that we add some highlights to help blend my gray and keep a lighter base color so that there won't be as much up keep or maintenance. Steven successfully made my hair healthy and it doesn't feel like straw any more. He is a miracle worker and i would recommend steven to anyone who has hair problems. GO SEE HIM, HE WILL FIX YOU TOO! Pros: Best Haircut and color ever more
