After gaining experience at several advanced training academies and prestigious salons, Donaylle Nicole channeled her ample styling skills into her own salon. At Donaylle Nicole Hair Studio, she leads a team that includes experienced stylists, aestheticians, and a facial specialist from the Bengston Institute. They employ Redken, Pureology, and ammonia-free hair products in their beautifying regimens. As the stylists perform precision haircuts and coloring services, aestheticians pamper other clients from head to toe with body wraps, pedicures, and professional makeup services with Mirabella products or colorful lacquers. To help spice up birthday and bachelorette parties, they also offer custom spa parties that can include massages, facials, and waxes.
The studio itself reflects the staff?s passion for aesthetic beauty. Exposed off-white brick walls attempt to hide behind diamond-shaped mirrors and flowing brown curtains. Rustic hardwood flooring evokes the deck of a pirate ship?only in the salon, the hair that falls onto it smells pleasant.

La Bella Hair Studio's salon floor buzzes with a lively symphony of blow-dryers and chatter as the team of stylists works diligently to weave extensions, design haircuts, and paint in color to suit each clients' needs. Before laying hands on hair, the stylists consult with clients to determine hair's type, condition, daily routines, and number of chewing-gum incidents. The stylists then set about meeting beauty goals with the help of haircare products from Redken, Paul Mitchell, Biolage, and Pureology. For clients prepping for a wedding, La Bella?s staff also offers customizable packages that can be performed in the salon or on-location.
