At Belisa Salon, owner and certified Redken haircolorist Isabel Feiteira calls upon skills honed at New York City's Redken Exchange and L.A.'s Sebastian Institute to bring clients the most advanced hair services available. Leading a talented team of stylists—including 25-year industry veteran and hair-texture specialist Glennette Goings—Feiteira's dexterous hands wield shears, razors, and texturizing scissors as she creates cutting-edge looks for men, women, and kids. But its her hair-coloring expertise that really sets the salon apart. Consultations include a hair and scalp analysis—also a Feiteira specialty—as stylists pinpoint a color treatment that won't clash with the client's lifestyle or argyle-loving shopping buddy. Redken Color Fusion treatments create dimensional color courtesy of permanent colorcremes infused with polymers and proteins that condition parched strands, while color-gloss treatments from Shades EQ help rebalance brassy tones and enhance the depth of dyed or natural shades.
Beyond hairstyling, Belisa Salon also offers nail treatments ranging from basic manicures to gel-polish overlays, and waxing services that start at the brows and move steadily southward.
