Joy Franco draws on 24 years of experience to tend to clients’ hair in the sleek confines of Studio C & Spa. Joy is certified in advanced haircutting techniques by the Toni and Guy Academy and continues her education to stay up to date on the latest trends, techniques, and definitions of “scissors.” She has also served as a Clairol Professional–certified color educator for 14 years, gaining know-how that allows her to imbue strands with deep hues and eye-catching highlights.
When it comes to her clients’ hair, stylist Michellina Gonzales does not shy away from color. She happily adds anything from golden highlights to kelly-green streaks to all-over color in deep burgundy. Her eye for trendy styles also includes updos for special occasions and keratin smoothing treatments that leave hair as straight and clean as a baby’s driving record.
Licensed cosmetologist Amelia Lopez-Garcia has resculpted manes and infused locks with color for more than two decades. She heads a team of stylists who each have at least 15 years of experience. Inside La Bella Salon's chic studio, they create elegant updos, smooth strands with keratin treatments, and perform precise haircuts for men, women, and children.
At La Bella Salon, stylists cut hair for both children and adults. They also specialize in more elaborate ‘dos, including wedding-day styles and Brazilian Blowouts, which leave hair sleeker, shinier, and, often, straighter, for up to 12 weeks.
