Hi Gresalda, My name is Jeannette Bonaldi and i am the owner of bella. I appreciate you concern for the staff of bella. I am so glad you were able to express yourself on citisearch because I know most people don't actually know how I pay my staff. So I thought I would take this opportunity to share with you. My staff is paid hourly plus a commission on al services they do. I decided to pay this way because as a 25 year veteran of the beauty industry I have found most hairdressers starve to death can never take a vacation and don't know if they have a feast or famine the week that they work. I wanted more for my staff a gaurentee for them, so they can make there house payment or car payment or just know that they will always have a check. as a matter of fact all the staff makes an overall average of 50 to 78 percent the highest paid employees on the west coast. I have offered to pay straight commission none have wanted it. I am proud to say I over 1-3 weeks paid vacation, paid education, in addition, cost on purchase of all products and of course a fabulous Christmas party to say thank you every year to celebrate our appreciation of their hard work. Most of all we support our staff in any and all ways. It is 2010 and no hairdresser in the store currently makes less than $13 and hour most make more plus commission on services.
You also noticed my car, It is pretty fun, I bought it used so I saved a bundle! and my dad alway told me "by quality, you get what you pay for", since I can not work on cars I went for a good one and to my delight to have my car serviced is about the same, if not less than, having my toyota serviced! You Probably know that My husband and I owned and operated 2 business, employing 35 people and spend most of time at work. So the time spend on the road back and forth to work needs to be made the most of. Since my husband survived his bout with cancer I try to do everything I can to make the best of life for us, time is short. So thank you again for bring up these concerns, most people probably are curious I appreciate being able to let them know and thank you for coming to bella we love what we do and it is a privalege to serve you our valued guest. Jeannette Bonaldi
Fabulous Haircut by Megan-. Shame on you Jeanette - while you drive your new mercedes - you continue to underpay and overwork your girls who all deserve much more money besides fake support.
Expensive, Hard Sell, Fakely Nice Atmosphere. Services are variable with some being quite good and others mediocre. However, the place has a rushed feel and the staff seem to be straining to convey a friendly attitude. They push products and much of the "niceness" does not ring true.
Great Service - Lovely Owner - Good Quality. Its a great place if you want to chat and get treated at the same time! You walk in and are immediatly welcomed by the friendy receptionist and are given the quality of queens when you sit down on that salon chair. I have been going there for years and have seen the exceptional workers leave and the best stay and give Bella a right to their name. Nothing but a lovely review here. :]
Overpriced - Save your Money, Go Somewhere Else!. I spent "mucho deniero" at Bella and was really disappointed with the results. The atmosphere is nice and it seems like a really chic, upper-class place, but the stylists just don't have what it takes to charge such outrageous prices. I got a much better trim from Rebecca at the Penney's salon on South Carson Street. I also had to have them fix my haircolor after Bella's messed it up.
