Imagine that the world is just a big, messy head of hair waiting to be styled. It's an understandable notion for somebody who's spent 20 years immersed in hair design. Ben Zell is that person; his passion for hairstyling is so innate that one morning, according to an anecdote he shared with his online followers, he couldn't help himself from styling the snow piled on his car roof into a mohawk before driving off. This creativity and intuitive eye for design reaches its apex at Bella Mia Salon, where Ben styles hair for men and women with special attention to personalized hair design. When cutting and coloring hair, he considers the client's skin tones and facial features; his goal is to make the hairdo look natural and to spotlight and embellish the client's most flattering features. Ben also likes to teach his clients proper maintenance techniques that help keep hair looking healthy and perfectly styled.
