The experienced stylists at exotic hair bar offer complimentary consultations and a wide variety of hair and beauty services to their clients. They cut and style hair for women and men, creating traditional or modern looks. They add bursts of color with partial or full highlights and offer texturing and straightening services. They also shape eyebrows, treat dry scalps or damaged hair, and lengthen hair with hair extensions.
At Bella Tula Salon, the stylists specialize in hair—they can cut hair, color hair, lengthen hair, and even remove hair.

Their seamlessly applied weaves cover natural hair with sleek extensions, and their waxes strip away unwanted stubble. And no matter what the service, the stylists are dedicated to giving their clients a look that fits their own personal style and lifestyle. Additionally, an on-site boutique complements their hair services, with an array of jewelry, accessories, apparel, and giant candy combs.
To get an idea of the kinds of services offered at Carrollton Square Salon & Spa, you need only look up. In one of the treatment rooms, a tent hovers over the massage bed, ready to catch clouds of toxin-dispersing steam. In another room, the ceiling’s wooden bars allow trained ashiatsu practitioners to buoy and balance themselves while massaging clients' backs with their feet. The only thing you'll find on the ceiling of the relaxation room is soft, recessed lighting and the trapped cartoon-bubble sighs of stress relief left behind by previous guests.
The salon and spa harnesses the historic charm of downtown Carrollton and is filled with friendly, down-to-earth staffers. This combination won over readers of the Carrollton Leader, who voted it the Best Spa and Best Massage in 2012.
