Three thriving locations and a slew of press from outlets such as Teen Vogue and Fox News make a strong case for the success of LaBelle Day Spas & Salons. But the true testament to the salon and spa's success lies, quite literally, in the hands of owner and skincare specialist Bella Schneider. Bella is the winner of the Les Nouvelles Esthetiques Crystal Award and has spent almost four decades helping clients including Audrey Hepburn and Michelle Pfeiffer, obtain healthy, glowing complexions.
Her humble European background led her to the salon where she would receive an apprenticeship at the young age of 14. This moment became the catalyst to her skincare career, which included earning an Economics degree in the States before opening the first LaBelle Day Spa and Salon in 1976. And even though she added two more locations by the late 1980's, the mission for each beauty haven has remained the same: to provide European-quality treatments that are science-based.
Bella and her team—which includes her daughter and grandson—use her personally-formulated line of products to ensure effective results during each service, which range from vitamin-infused facials to mani-pedis enhanced by essential oils and advanced body-contouring Endermologie treatments. LaBella's team also guarantees an exceptional experience by offering spa guests a relaxing foot soak. In the salons, master stylists and colorists customized hair services by using advanced balayage and precision cutting techniques, while Pilates instructors teach private lessons so clients can perfect their posture, alignment, and grace.
Having planned and executed massage therapy for the Tennessee Titans and competitors in the Rock ?n? Roll Marathon, the muscle menders at Athletic Edge know how to help the body recover from physical trauma and athletic exertion.

Although the gentle or directed kneading can have a distinctively relaxing effect, the therapists specialize in jump-starting clients' natural healing processes and helping them overcome the soft-tissue pains that athletic activity, auto accidents, and full-contact charades can cause. The studios also partner with chiropractors and physical therapists to form a one-stop treatment center for athletes, with particular modalities complementing the strains incurred by particular sports.
