Our Successful Mother’s Day

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

Mother’s Day at Bella Gia Salon and Day Spa, was a huge success from start to finish! Mother’s from all ends of the spectrum came in to celebrate with us, not just Sunday May 10th, but the entire Mother’s day weekend.

We have a wonderful front desk team that works hard to help clients pick the perfect gift for the Mother in their life. We make sure to take the carrun 169x300 Our Successful Mothers Daytime to accommodate every one and customize packages to what the client needs and wants. In the picture to the right we had a client order a gift card for his wife over the phone, when he came to pick up the gift card his three year old son was fast asleep in his car. No worries, we do curbside pick up! We also made phone calls for our busy clients after purchasing gift certificates to let their Mothers know they were gifted a spa day with every taken care of when they would like to schedule an appointment.

In the spa we made everything extra special! We had a special Mother’s Day menu that we made in house, Watermelon, Strawberry, Basil infused water, and of course champagne and mimosa’s flowing under beautiful candle light! Our decor was also updated right before the big weekend. We added gorgeous acrylic art pieces to our service rooms and hall ways, and a beautiful waterfall.

Our team was so honored to make the day special for the Moms that came in over Mother’s Day weekend. For all the hard work, time, and love Moms put in every day they deserve a day of relaxation, pampering, and being catered to!

Vivid, Bold, & Bright

Friday, February 6th, 2015

It is slowly becoming more and more acceptable to have bright and bold hair colors opposed to the more traditional blondes and brunettes. Walking down the street or scrolling through your newsfeed you may find that friends are making daring changes in their hair colors from bright, bold reds and coppers to deep and daring violets, people are loving this new trend.

Before having brightly colored hair was only something done by the rebellious and dare devil crowd. Now even more conservative people from all age ranges are venturing into pure pigment vivids.

Not everyone needs to have there entire hair done in a full all over color of pure true red like the little mermaid, there are many other ways to get your feet wet with these primary colors.

Bold- Some are tinting their brunette tones by adding a kick of red or violet to give their natural color a tint/hue of the color without being too overwhelming. Inside your hair may still have that nice traditional brunette color but in the sun it will pick up and enhance the color you toned it with.

Bolder– Others are choosing to dip-dye their hair or do a few peek-a-boo high lights of a bold color, this look will give you the vibrancy your looking for while still keeping your over all color this will be less up keep by not brining the color not completely up to the roots.

Boldest- Then many are either doing an ombre or all over color of a pure pigment color definitely giving you a bold vivid look where ever you go.

Still Getting Break Outs and Don’t Know Why?

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

Are you following your home care regimen and faithfully following your product routine and still getting break outs? In addition to getting regular facials at our day spa here are a few little tips to help you out!

 

Wash your make-up brushes! 

 

 

In brushes that have not been cleaned it’s an easy place for bacteria to grow and multiply when this happens you are spreading the growing bacteria all over your skin every time you use the brush. In return you will continue to have break outs and blemishes despite your skin care routine.  Depending on how often you apply make up and the manufacturer of your brushes you would clean them either weekly or monthly. (if you apply a full face of make up daily clean your brushes every week, but if you only apply make up every few days you can wait longer to clean them)

There are many types of brush cleaning sprays you can purchase and use or if you are looking for items around the house, shampoo or using a gentle dish soap with a drop of olive oil is a great option as well. After washing them reshape the bristles and allow to sit over night to dry!

 

Skip fabric-softener with pillow cases!

 

 

Try washing your sheets and pillow cases more often first, but if that doesn’t work try skipping the fabric-softener. Fabric-softener basically adds a coding over the fabric which can be irritating your skin while sleeping! Try out this tip especially if you are having break outs specifically on the side of your face you tend to have against the sheets.

Wipe down your phones screen!

 

Especially now that cell phones never leave our sides they collect all types of dirt, debris, oils from our finger tips, and bacteria. Make sure you clean your phone frequently so none of that will spread to your skin.

 

It’s not just about making sure your skin is clean but making sure everything that touches your skin is clean too! Especially if you have break-out prone skin take the extra precautions simple smile Still Getting Break Outs and Dont Know Why?

Brazilian Blowout Treatment

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

Working at a salon I get tons of phone calls about the Brazilian Blowout treatment for their hair. Clients want to know, what is it? Will it damage my hair?  What if my hair is colored?  So I have decided to blog the answers to all these questions and then some simple smile Brazilian Blowout Treatment

What is a Brazilian Blowout?

Through the use of innovative and breakthrough bonding technologies, these treatments actually improve the health and condition of the hair by creating a protective protein layer around the hair shaft to eliminate frizz and smooth the cuticle.
They start by washing your hair multiple times using the Brazilian Blowout shampoo followed by apply the solution to each section of hair. Next, they dry and flat iron the hair to lock in the treatment. Once that’s complete they wash your hair again and flatiron one more time. The end result is smooth, healthy, frizz-free hair with radiant shine!

Who is the best candidate for a Brazilian Blowout?

The Brazilian Blowout is effective on all hair types; thick, thin, dry, chemically damaged, blondes, brunettes, straight and/or curly.

Can I still receive a Brazilian Blowout with colored or highlighted hair?

The answer is YES! The BB actually improves the health of color treated hair. BB conditions the hair and seals the cuticle for enhanced color, leaving it shiny and frizz free.

How long will the Brazilian Blowout treatment last?

The Brazilian Blowout will last for 10-12 weeks if the Açai After-Care Maintenance product line is used. The Brazilian Blowout is a cumulative treatment, in that the more you receive it, the healthier the hair will be and the longer the result will last.

I hope this answers some if not all of your questions about the Brazilian Blowout treatment. Call Bella Gia Salon and Spa today to try one out! 619.297.7601

Prepare for Hair Color Service

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

How can I prepare my hair for a color change?
I get this question a lot from clients coming in to change their hair color. Everyone wants to be able to prevent damage to their hair when making a change, whether it’s to cover greys or reinvent your look, over processing your hair by bleaching or dying it, it’s best to understand ways to help prevent the damage. Here are some tips on how to do so!

1) Use salon recommend shampoos and conditioners that are made specifically for color treated hair and applying a deep conditioning mask once a week will help protect the color. Color treated shampoos and conditioners are gentle and won’t strip the moisture from your hair.

2) Give your hair a trim prior to the color. Removing the split ends will help you keep your hair healthy in the long run.

3) Try alternating weekly deep conditioning treatments with a protein treatment. Protein fills cracks in the hair cuticle to make it smooth, which makes the hair stronger and shinier. But be careful not to apply protein treatments more than once every 1 to 2 weeks, since it can make your hair feel brittle.

4) Skip washing your hair before coloring. The scalps natural oils work as a buffer to prevent irritation that can be caused from coloring it. Dirty hair is easier to section and ensures even color distribution.

5) Steer clear of the pool! Chlorine strips away the hair cuticle, allowing minerals in the water to get into the hair shaft and alter your color. Steer clear for about 2 weeks prior and after dying your hair.

Hope this helps you prepare for your next transformation or just a quick fix up! Check back soon foe more hair tips!

Bella Gia Open House

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

Hello Bella Gia Friends!! Not sure if you had a chance to join us last month for our Open House event – but what a great time! We are located in the Promenade Rio Vista Luxury Apt Complex, so many of those residents joined us that day.

We had 85 RSVPs and more than 100 people showed up for the actual event! We served wine, champagne, appetizers and desserts but more importantly people were given a chance to try 2 services AT NO CHARGE. We offered eyebrow or lip waxing or lip sugaring with a skin analysis, a no-wash hairstyle (curls or flat iron) with a color analysis, nail polish changes and chair massages! We received RAVE REVIEWS and have seen many of those clients back for more services.

This type of event is fun for us at Bella Gia because it gives us a chance to demonstrate what a great location, facility and team we have! My service providers are hugely talented and extremely professional, our location and facility is beautiful and serene – everything a discriminating client looks for in a Salon and Day Spa!
