I found this great salon on somewhat of a whim and didn't expect it to be as good as it was for the prices. They were very affordable and do a fantastic job. I feel like I found a rare gem in San Diego.

I have been a client of Monica Virissimo for years. Each time I want a new look, she listens and then tells me how we can achieve the look. And she achieves just what I want. She is prompt and professional Jolene Jackson

What a great place! Great atmosphere, good energy, wonderful staff and a great hair cut! I came in as a walk in on a saturday just trying to be hopeful to get an appointment. They were so great, they fit me in and i got a great haircut. I walked out skipping.

Holly is truely an artist! The beautiful pedicure she does called "Rock Star Toes" is my favorite special treat for myself. It will bring a smile to your face everytime you look down and see your toes twinkling in the sunlight.

I never thought that I would be writing a review for a manicurist, but it is precisely because this particular manicurist at Salon Bella -- Holly Johnson -- is so special that I am able to do this. I have been a nail biter all of my life and have felt terribly ashamed about it. In preparation for my wedding, I decided that I finally had to come to grips with this life long habit. With trepidation, I looked for a manicurist, and it was my great fortune to find Holly. She never, once, made me feel ashamed or bad about myself. There was no judgment, only support and encouragement. She accepted me where I was at that point, and we began our journey together to turn this problem around. Much to my amazement, acrylic nails ended up helping me "jump start" growing my own nails (similar to a nicodine patch, I would say, for smokers). I am no longer wearing them, and while I consider myself a "recovering nail biter," with relapses now and then, I am light years from where I was. I credit Holly with this. She has, literally, been my "nail therapist," and I would recommend her to anyone who no longer wants to feel self-conscious about their fingernails."

Ramon has been doing my hair for years, never does a week go by without someone telling me how incredible the color is and how healthy it looks. Whats the point in having a great cut if your hair isn't healthy, Ramon is adamant about both. Once he's done your color you will never let anyone else touch your hair, he really is amazing!

I recently had my hair cut at Salon Bella and was very pleased. The staff is very friendly and the location is beautiful. For wavy hair I highly recommend Jack, he really knows how to work with hard to manage curls!
