Melody is THE BEST! – Austin - if you haven't been to Bella's and met Melody - you are missing out! Melody has been cutting and highlighting my hair for the past 10 years...and I live in Dallas! YES DALLAS! So - take it from me - you can get THE BEST hair cut and color in the state of Texas right in your back yard!
The new attraction at Bella Salon: Melody – 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!
A Super Salon – One of the best salons in Austin...Absolutely fun and electric atmosphere..great stylists and services...including ManeGain Hair Regrowth Therapy too! Ask for Giacomo and you will not be disappointed...
Jason is a Great Stylist with Cali Flare – 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.
Great Service from Raquel – 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!
RAQUEL - TALENTED HAIR COLORIST AND ARTIST – 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.
Kimberly Hogan @ Bella Salon – I am so excited to be back at Bella Salon! I would like to thank everyone for supporting me thru the years and I look forward to a fabulous 2011!

Go to Bella & see Raquel!!! – 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.
Raquel is simply the best !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – 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.
