The Italian word "ciao" means both hello and goodbye, though "bella" always means beautiful. So when a stylist at Ciao Bella calls out the salon's namesake phrase, she could be greeting a returning guest, but she might also be sending off a client transformed by a cut, color, or chemical-relaxer service. The staff uses Matrix and California Smooth products to achieve these transformations amid the salon's cheery turquoise walls and wood furnishings, carved from only the most fashion-forward trees.
Fela, the cosmetologist behind Hair and Nailz by Fela, keeps clients looking well groomed and stylish with signature hair and nail treatments. She cuts and colors hair, sews in weaves, and infuses strands with keratin proteins or Moroccan hot oil for a smoother, shinier texture. Signature mani-pedis keep natural, acrylic, or gel nails in mint condition, with optional trendy accents such as caviar texture or stiletto points. Fela's studio is located within Phenix Salon Suites.
No matter how beautiful you are, it's hard to feel that way when your hair is thinning, when it is missing in certain areas, or when it simply isn't as long as you want it to be. Vita's Hair Studio's stylists help make women feel beautiful again with nonsurgical hair-replacement treatments?including hair grafting and hairline reconstruction?as well as with glue-less hair extensions and weaves. They use 100% virgin human hair, instead of bundles of string, to create natural looks. They also pamper existing hair with warm nourishing oil and organic moisture-replenishing products.
