I have to say not a good experience. i went to stephine when she worked at another salon in slidell,it was a nice experience there. the new salon i waited and left with a fried Blond mess,over processed and a mess. I went home and and the stuff started breaking off. i went back and there was no hope. my Rating THUMBS DOWN

i had the greatest expierence ever! she is the best i would never let anyone else touch my hair and do my makeup! you may have to wait a little while, but that is becuase she gives you that one on one personal time. and for the comment from donna m, when you learn about hair and what blonde color does to it then i would like to see you make a comment like that again! my blonde comes out perffect all the time! maybe your friend has horrible hair and wants it too blonde! i give TWO THUMBS UP to stephanie!

I agree with Donna M. I was trying to find someone in Slidell to color my hair b/c my regular girl, who always does an excellent job, is in Chalmette and drive was becoming a hardship. I had not one, but two terrible experiences with Bella Vita. Both times I went in for a cut and color, coloring my hair from a lighter brown to a darker brown. I spent 6 hours in her shop both times, because she colored my hair, and then told me the "color didn't take" when it was time to wash the color out. She then had to try to condition and re-color my hair. Now, keep in mind that my regular girl has NEVER had a problem coloring my hair. Over the course of the two visits, I was asked if I either abused drugs and had a poor diet b/c she couldn't get the color to work on my hair. Then, after sitting in her shop for over 6 hours the second time, she still charged me $120.00 for color that was not correct and a haircut that left me still having split ends. The best part was that, in between the two visits, I went back to my regular girl, and she colored my hair with no problem! Needless to say, I've never been back, but have had my hair colored several times since by my regular girl, who has no problem coloring/cutting my hair. I am happy that others have had great experiences with Bella Vita. I wish I could say the same.:(

I was looking for a salon that did hair extensions makeup and hair. I liked my makeup and hair. However It was the day of my wedding and Stephanie had my bridesmaids hair to do also. She said to send 3 people at a time starting from 10:00 am. She thought she could do all 8 of our hair in 6 hours plus she was still taking other people in between my bridesmaids so 4 of my bridesmaids left and she wouldn't give them the deposit back. And my bridesmaids hair styles looked different from each other and I let Stephanie know days before my wedding that the wedding was 30 minutes away so needless to say I was late for my wedding and everybody was miserable from waiting in the heat and she said she could do a malibu hair piece for me but it was not even close to that color. They were however very outgoing and I loved the manager but I will never go there or recommend them.

Stephanie the owner has no class and VERY DISRESPECTFUL. I would never in a million years ever send anyone to this woman. She yells at clients and treats people like crap. This is not proffessional in any way. People please report this woman to your local state board for barbers and cosmetology board. They have a right to know about poor rated hairdressers in your community. That is exactly what we are going to do. Booooo whoooo on Bella Vita

I went to get hair and makeup done at Bella vita for an important event. I made an appointment that provided a 2-hour window for them to do my hair and makeup. I sat there for an hour and 20 minutes before anyone started my hair. I walked out with terrible hair and no makeup and 30 minutes late for my function. I cried as I walked out and did my own makeup in the parking lot. Stephanie made my appt and said she would take care of me, but she didn't acknowledge me the day I was there, and one of her other stylists had to squeeze me in between clients. This was the worst salon experience I have ever had.

I love Bella Vita. Stephanie and Rosa did hair for my wedding in October. They showed up at my hotel on time and did my hair and 6 others quickly. Everyone complimented our hair all night. Oh! And my hair was a disaster prior to my wedding. My previous stylist totally screwed up my hair but Rosa saved me and fixed it in one appointment. I would recommend Bella Vita to anyone.

The best hair salon I have ever been to in my whole life and I'm a hairdresser myself. They do nothing but do everything in their power to get your hair healthy and gorgeous. I have been involved with them for 7 months now and would never change salons or go anywhere else. Everywhere I go everybody stops me about my hhair I have had to give out at least 50 cards to everyone I run into. Do your hair a favor and go check them out. Best salon stylist ever and most honest. Go fast give the best to your hair.

Appears to be a "closed shop" as phones are not answered during business hours-you get voice mail requesting a "detailed message" for an appointment - which, by the way, are NOT returned.
