Polished’s all-out manicure soothes skin and smoothes gnarled nails. A citrus exfoliation treatment washes out dead skin cells and unclogs packed pores, while a paraffin dip bathes hands in a warm wax to relieve stiff joints and muscles. Nails are filed and styled, and an orange-perfumed hand and arm massage refreshes like a cool breeze whispering through an Ocala orange grove.
Fresh off her achievement of becoming the valedictorian of her graduating class at Dudley’s Beauty College, Hope D. Hannibal wanted to test her mettle. She signed up for a duo of competitions, snipping and cropping her way to a second- and third-place finish in the Bronner Bros. Student Rising Star and Student Mannequin competitions. Springboarding off those victories, and undergirded by her bachelor's in business management, the aesthetics go-getter started her own salon.
In 2009, she flung open the doors to Bella Cheveux Salon and Spa, where she and her staff treat clients to an array of prettifying services. As a national educator for Dudley’s haircare products, Hope ensures that her team is up on the latest beauty innovations. She harnesses continuing education and training to outfit her patrons with the latest trends, sprucing up coifs with cuts, highlights, and relaxers or accenting nails with colors more dynamic than a rainbow seen through a prism.
