What Our Clients Are Saying
This is an example of some of our GREAT Yelp and Google reviews.
This place was amazing! My husband surprised me by setting us up for a couples massage for our anniversary. I had no idea what to expect but the moment I walked into the spa area I was immediately impressed. The place was really pretty, the decor was sleek and perfectly put together. They offered us wine while we waited (which was only a few short minutes). Andrea was my massage therapist and she was fantastic! I would highly recommend booking your massage with her! Our massage included aromatherapy which was the absolute perfect touch. I’d give more stars in my rating if I could. Larissa R
People were very friendly and professional. Dana was great!!! I highly recommend her!!!! Jorge A
I have nothing but good things to say about my experiences at this salon because I always receive the best treatment and services. I love the location because Mission Valley is chill and the salon is inside of a nice condo complex. It’s upscale so it’s on the high end as far as pricing goes but it’s worth it. The place is clean and relaxing. The front desk girls are helpful and friendly. I like the fact that they offer champagne, mimosas, and wine. There’s a spa on the other side which I have yet to explore. I’ve heard great things about the services on that end though so maybe someday I’ll try it out. Ness M
I came here for the Mommy to Be Pregnancy package (an AMAZING gift for any pregnant ladies in your life!!) and it was seriously wonderful. Every person I encountered at the spa was so kind and easy to get along with – like a group of friends giving you a spa day. I started with a massage with Andrea. She was so gentle, explained all of my options for how to best position myself comfortably (managing a big belly) and created a wonderful calming atmosphere – plus an excellent massage. Then I had a very nice lunch, nothing fancy but fresh salad and fruit with soup – you wouldn’t want anything heavy during a spa day anyway. Next I had the le grande classique facial (part of the package) with Erin. She was SO knowledgeable, funny and professional. My face looked and felt cleaner than it ever had for a solid two weeks after that facial and I can’t stop thinking about it. Finally Luis did my shampoo and style. He was energetic, kind and very professional – he listened to what I wanted and made me feel great about myself as I was leaving. I raved enough about the whole spa experience that my husband went back and bought another massage for my birthday – I’m hooked! Thanks Bella Gia! Iris F
As a new guest, I was welcomed warmly with a tour and a mimosa. They took me in right away and my hair was done almost immediately by my stylist who did my hair so effortlessly and well. Dania M
Absolutely fabulous staff & great foil! The stylist did such a wonderful job and so sweet! They got me in, last minute, after another Salon “forgot” about my appointment. I needed to get a partial foil before an event the next day! They took care of me and did an outstanding job! I will be back to this salon for sure! My hair looks so great, I could not be happier! Thank you all & especially Shannen! Gillian P
AMAZING EXPERIENCE from start to finish!! I tried to book online, registered with my name, number, and email. When I got to the booking portion, I realized I couldn’t book the specific packages I wanted online- I’d have to call and speak to someone. I decided to get to it later, then completely forgot about it. The next day, I get a call from the salon!! They said they saw I had registered online and just wanted to check if I needed assistance booking appointments. I was already impressed. Scheduled two matching appts for me and my bf for later that week. We came in and she greeted us by name. The place was nice and empty- I was hoping it would be, as I didn’t want to come during a busy, noisy time. EVERYONE from the woman at the desk, to all of our therapists, to the woman who served us lunch was EXTREMELY nice and friendly. *NOTE: if you are the jealous type, do not bring your bf/ husband here because everyone is BEAUTIFUL and NICE!! =) All of our services were incredible!! (Massage and facial for each of us) My boyfriend can be picky and quite the critic, but he was highly satisfied with both services and he was impressed by the spa in general. The next day I even received a follow-up email thanking me for visiting their salon and letting me know about their loyalty program/points for future reference. From before we even arrived to long after we left, Bella Gia Salon and Spa completely met and surpassed my expectations. I was VERY pleased and will definitely return to this salon during any future visits to San Diego. Keep up the great work Michelle and the rest of the Bella Gia team!! Kisha H
I recently visited Bella Gia salon for the first time. In between colors, I wanted to save a little money so I tried a box dye at home. BIG mistake! I used a color by Garnier called garnet red. The color was so horrible, the roots were bright red and my ends were still brown. First off, the receptionist was very helpful and was able to get me in the next day with Rica. I wanted an ombre hair color which I explained similar to “Khloe Kardashian.” Now because of the new dye in my hair and because it was red, Rica let me know she would have to correct the color first. We were unsure how it would lift but you can see in the picture it looks amazing!!! I will definitely be returning in a few weeks for my touch up and will continue to see Rica. Thank you guys so much for helping me fix this mess!!! Dakota P
After a couple years alternating between Blonde and Brunette, I decided I was ready to try Red for the first time. I am VERY picky with my hair and have really high standards so I wanted to make sure my hair was done by only a cream of the crop professional. I ended up seeing Dana A. at Bella Gia and was ecstatic with how my hair turned out!! She ended up blending three types of red to create this amazing and gorgeous shade that I am absolutely in love with! I walked in a mousy brunette with sandy blonde roots and left with the most vibrant yet absolutely lovely shade of red and it is exactly what I had envisioned and desired when I was contemplating the change so I am very happy with the result! Her work is exceptional and she was also incredibly efficient yet thorough and precise… you can tell she loves doing hair and is a perfectionist which is a trait all women want in a hairstylist. Her work is so good that not only did my co-workers, family and friends compliment me but I even had a random stranger at Ralph’s whisk by me and say, “I LOVE your hair color!” I also had this older gentleman at the gym the other day compliment my hair, too! When strangers compliment the specific color of your hair? Yea, that definitely is testimony of quality work! I highly recommend her and that says a lot coming from me. I’ve seen about 20 different hair people in my life and she definitely impressed me the most, hands down. In addition, the salon itself is super nice. It is in a very nice part of Mission Valley and the interiors inside are beautiful – streamlined, immaculate in terms of cleanliness, soothing yet clean and refined – lovely place! All in all, I am so impressed and booked my next appointment for Sept!! Caitlyn S
I recently went to Bella Gia for a facial, massage and some waxing. WOW it was great, and exactly what I needed for a girls day. The girl who answered the phone was so sweet and really knew her stuff – she asked lots of questions and answered all of mine. I did their special facial that comes with microdermabrasion and my skin looks so great. Which is very rare for me, it made me feel so pretty. I also had my brows waxed and they got the shape of them perfect, and i am knew to the eyebrow waxing world, and I can actually say this was an enjoyable experience. The massage was one of the best I have ever had (and I have had lots!). The girl really listened to me and hit all my trouble spots. I have a spasms muscle into shoulder and she knew exactly how to relax it, which was wonderful. The salon is beautiful and very peaceful and clean. everyone was so friendly – i had 2 mimosas and was able to really relax which is exactly what I needed. I plan to get my hair done the next time I come in for my brows. Loved it! I highly recommend this experience to anybody. Leahe K
My husband booked me a package for my birthday as a surprise. It was nice. Loved the Swedish massage, the facial was relaxing but I didn’t totally care for the hair part. The girl was nice, but it was awkward. I was supposed to have lunch first, but then I was moved & told I needed to go to the lobby & actually get my hair done first. In which I really preferred to put my clothes back on vs. sitting in the open salon in a robe. Then I was moved back to the spa area for lunch. There was also some confusion with the facial– my hubby scheduled a microdermabrasion & I was put in for a different facial treatment. They were nice when we arrived & fixed it. Despite the confusion it was a nice day & the salad was good. Becky R
It’s been about 5 years since my hair seen a professional stylist or color. It was time I jumped off the cliff and get my hair done. Rica was my stylist and she is AMAZING! She knew exactly what I wanted. I barely even knew what I wanted and she help me pick something that would look good on me. Only 3.5 hours to turn my virgin black, boring hair, into A BEAUTY BOMBSHELL! I am so excited about my new look. The color is amazing and the cut will enhance the ways I style my hair. She really understood what I was trying to accomplish. She was assuring and very informative. She read my mind! I have beautiful tri-tone ombré, and cut. She styled it to perfection in beautiful beach waves. She wasn’t pushy about products like most stylist do after your done. She recommended some and because she did such a wonderful job I trusted her recommendations. Already scheduled my next appointment. I am truly happy and ecstatic about showing off my new do! Thank you Rica I feel pretty again! Jennah B
Whenever I need waxing done this is the place to go. I break out from waxing but when I go here I don’t. They always put the right product on to keep it from happening. The staff is friendly and booking online is perfect for when I’m busy at work and need a quick appointment. I couldn’t recommend a better place. Sydnie E
This place is amazing!! And really pretty!! As soon as I walked in, I was greeted by their receptionist, who literally was the sweetest thing and she offered me water. Ive never been to a salon that offers me a refreshment, so that was really nice. My stylist was Dana A. She was so cheerful and happy, that you can tell she LOVES doing hair and making people feel great. I didn’t really know what I wanted, all I knew is that I I’m not too good on styling my own hair, I want something simple but pretty and I have a date tonight..so make me look good!!! The end result was great!! She gave me the loose, voluminous Kim K. curls with a nice side bang. At the end of the night, I didn’t want to go to sleep, just so I wouldn’t mess up my hair!! I really like this place and Dana A. is one of the nicest stylists I’ve had in a long time. Will definitely be going back again. Oh! and they have a Spa side which I can’t wait to try out! Abimbola Beverly A
This review is actually for the massage. Every time I come here I have a great experience, fell relaxed and rejuvenated! Good customer service too. Of course I make reservations ahead of time, but the service I get is what I expected if not better. The massage, in particular is amazing. My masseuse took the time to listen and spend time on my problem area. This spa is really not one of those fu fu spas. It’s legit, clean, smells good and the ambiance is good. The facial I couldn’t care less since the esthetician seemed to be in a hurry when I had mine done, but I’d still give it 5 stars since I am nice and I really liked the massage. Wella Z
Was able to book my appointment online the night the before (thank goodness). Was irritated at first because there was a $50 deposit required when I thought they were already expensive enough, but was pleasantly surprised to see that it counts towards your overall bill. I got an Algae body wrap, hot stone massage and a hair cut/style. Both girls were very sweet and made sure I was happy (wish I could remember their names!) I left feeling very happy and refreshed. I wish the prices were a little lower so I could afford to go more often (including tips all my services were $235), but the money is worth it when you haven’t been pampered for long time! Felicia J
THIS IS A HIGHLY RECOMMENDED SALON AMD DAY SPA! I called through to this salon and they were able to assist me within half an hour as I was desperate to see someone for hair extensions as I was leaving SD the next day. Michelle was absolutely helpful to the point where where she was helping me with appropriate transport to and from the salon on the phone before I got there and when I was leaving. Shannon assisted me with my hair and is a phenomenal hair dresser, she was excellent with what I required and great at having a chat too. The whole salon was very friendly, all staff that worked there. One lady even walked me to the train depot after my appointment as I am from Australia and had no idea how to use the trolly and even helped me purchasing a ticket. I highly recommend this salon and day spa for all services. Great job!! Daniela – Melbourne- Australia
Best place ever. One of the greatest experiences of my life; even better than kissing my boyfriend for the first time. This place is that good. I came here during spa week and I’m so glad I did. I got a massage and a facial done. I have already scheduled another appointment for a facial and will probably add something else to that. Stephanie G.
The staff at Bella Gia is friendly, customer oriented and very skilled. My children gave me a gift card for my birthday for every service Bella Gia has to offer. I was so impressed that I have called Bella Gia Salon my salon ever since. Their signature facial and message are the best I have ever had. Their nail technicians are wonderful. I urge you to try them. Gale P.
So I really should have posted this a lot sooner but better late than never I guess. 5 stars does not give enough credit to how wonderful and professional the staff is here and how great the service is that each one of them provide. Not only do I say that from my personal experience (Jessica G. is my personal fave and hands down the best I’ve ever gone to for wax services/facials) but from my friends & family members along with some of my clients that I’ve recommended the spa to. One client in particular had her whole bridal party there with nothing but positive things to say and said that Michelle was not only very sweet but very accommodating. Niki C.
This salon is my favorite of any of I have ever been to. My old salon charged well over $100 for a bikini wax. Bella Gia Salon & Day Spa’s price for the same service is less than half of that. Not only are their prices great but the staff always makes sure that you are comfortable and relaxed. Victoria is my service provider and she is great! She gets it done quickly but yet does a fantastic job. Fal M.
My boyfriend gave my mother and myself Mother/Daughter gift package for Christmas! We spent the entire day being pampered…which we were looking forward to! However the thing we didn’t expect was the “over the top” service we received! The staff at Bella Gia’s are amazing…they all went above and beyond to ensure our visit was memorable! Thank You Everyone! Kat S.
I received a gift card for Bella Gia earlier this year. I easily found them on line and went through their list of available services. I found the massage benefits to be affordable and as a new customer, there were special deals. I also found the salon options to be affordable and complete. Being it had been a while since I got my hair done and I was new to the area I chose a haircut and color. I was able to book my appointment on line. They called to confirm as well, which was great. The location was simple to find and in a nice area with ample parking. The salon itself was relaxed and clean. The staff was kind, bubbly and super helpful. Michele Risard did amazing work with color! She was friendly and knowledgeable. It has been a few months and I am still loving my hair! Christina C.
Bella Gia is a top-quality spa right here in San Diego! As a frequent spa-goer, I was so happy to find this little oasis of tranquility so close to home. Michele and her staff have always greeted me with kindness and the utmost professionalism. I’d especially like to recommend Meaghan Vahn, who is a wonderful masseuse and always seems to know exactly the right pressure points to focus on; she’s the best I’ve ever been to. When traveling I’ve been disappointed because I’ve become accustomed to Bella Gia’s quality and value and it’s the best way to pamper yourself. Thanks to Meaghan, Michele and everyone at Bella Gia! K.M
Love this salon! Got a last minute appointment with Virginia for a manicure. She was excellent! Got my manicure done in under an hour and was very nice. The shellac lasted two weeks and I will definitely be going back to get another manicure very soon. Morgan O.
Bella Gia is a great spa. I go there to get massages. Meghan is awesome. She has a lot of great techniques & she always mixes it up. I always feel refreshed & relaxed after the massage. I do not get massages that often, but Meghan, and the manager, Michele, remember me and always make me feel welcome. I also really like the ambiance of the spa. It is very tranquil & makes you feel like a sense of peace going over you before your massage. The spa is very inviting. I am getting a massage in a couple of weeks with Meghan again and I can’t wait! I hope to work there one day! Devon M.
Bella Gia is the absolute best! For starters, I have high standards when it comes to service and ambiance! Not only is the location great but the aesthetics are beautiful, peaceful and calming! The front desk was friendly and informative. My aesthetician, Jessica, is the best in the business!!! I highly recommend Bella Gia and Jessica!!! Aisha H.
I was very happy with the services i received at Bella Gia I came in for a Brazilian blow out, a pedicure and a full set of acrylics.. I didn’t have to wait long for my hair stylist to be ready for me to sit down and get started.. She was very good at explaining what the procedure for the Brazilian was, and also letting me know it was a better idea to get extensions, cuz they would just look better in my hair. I don’t remember her name, but she was just awesome. Then i got my toes pedciured and all i can say… best pedicure i have ever had!! Very relaxing and my toes are now gorgeous! Then last but not least Angie, did my nails and they are gorgeous and perfect!! I hadn’t got my nails done in quite a while, and she made sure i knew what i wanted done, before she started on them. I am very satisfied and happy with the services and care that i received during my visit to bellagio.. and will be going back in 2 weeks for my fill for my nails:) Celine C.
I absolutely LOVE Bella Gia ! I get all my waxing and massage services done here Victoria and Jessica are amazing! If your looking for a Brazilian that doesn’t make you scream then Jessica is your girl and Victoria is the best for facials. Also Michelle is amazing I always seem to call the day I need a service done and she always gets me in same day! Amazing! They also have a great points program to help you earn discounts! Meredith W.
I went here the first time because I was living in the Promenade Apartments so it was super convenient and they offered 25% your color if you are a first time visitor so I figured it was worth a shot. Michele R cut and colored my hair and I loved it! She did a great a job, is really fun to talk to, and has great hairstyling tips (she curled my hair with no spray and it stayed all day!) and cooking tips (which I need because I’m finally trying to learn to be a little domestic). I went back a second time and it was great again! I plan to keep going even though I have since moved out of the complex. Michelle P
I love coming here! Victoria does my waxing and I was just there today getting a facial they always have availability for me and they don’t push products on you like other places do and the entire staff is super nice! I highly recommend this spa it’s ambiance is great and the experience is first class every time you come not just the first time Meridith W
Bella Gia is 5 stars! This was my first time at the salon and the service was friendly and professional! My stylist Michelle was great! She was easy to talk to! She welcomed all of the request I had regarding my hair. She was also professional. She cut and blew my hair dry in under an hour and it looks great! The owner was eloquent! She was training a new employee and remained professional and patient with this young girl through her training. The salon was neat and clean! It was modern too. They have complimentary beverages of your choice and are very pleased to get it for you. The owner also entertained my questions I had about other service that the salon and spa provide! This is a great place to go for your beauty needs. I live in Corona and will definitely be making the drive to Bella Gia anytime I need a day of beauty and relaxation! Jenny F
I have been going to this salon for the past 2 years now and have had my hair done by three different hair dressers and they were all amazing! Yes they are a little expensive, but they communicate very well during consultations and have consistently done exactly what I’ve asked. Zarina is such a sweetheart; I recommend her to everyone! Amanda W
I was looking for a place that would have all in one pedi mani and eyebrow care with professional, clean and friendly service. I found it here!! I was greeted with smiles and even had to complete a skin care assessment for asking of any allergies to products that would be used during my eyebrow waxing. I was blown away and put at ease especially after noticing such cleanliness and care. Hands down this is my new spot. Jessica did my eyebrows and they were perfect and Angela introduced me to the shellac nail polish for my nature french mani and it hasnt chipped yet and its going on 2 weeks since my last visit. I will def b their for a renewal mani, pedi and eyebrow wax next week, my appointment is already scheduled. You need to try it, I promise you will fall in love with the service and quality!!! Joezette J
My husband and I recently moved to San Diego from the east coast, due to military orders. Relocating is a big adjustment, but Bella Gia was the first Salon I went to in San Diego and I loved it. I researched many salons online before choosing, Bella Gia had good reviews, as well as competitive prices. Bella Gia Salon and Spa has everything all in one location. The two suites is a nice touch also. Salon and nails are done in one suite and the spa (Facials/Waxing, etc.) in another suite. I have been very pleased with the services provided. I have had eye brow waxes, tinting and a facial provided by Vika. And Michele is a wonderful stylist, she gave an excellent conditioning treatment, cut and color/highlights and recommended products for my hair type. I definitely recommend this salon and spa! Leanne W
I recently moved to San Diego from Boston, MA. I had been going to the same hairdresser for years, and was very anxious about working with somebody else. I visited Bella Gia Salon and immediately knew this was the place for me. The owner was so warm and friendly, and answered all of my questions (there were many). My stylist Michele does a fantastic job, so much so that I have been stopped by strangers to ask where I get my hair done! I am very happy with Bella Gia Salon. The only thing I dislike is the cost of $50 for a trim – I never get my hair styled or an elaborate cut, just a simple half inch off the bottom every few visits. I wish it was a bit less expensive, but other than that, it is a fantastic salon! Melissa C
I have been getting my spa pedicures and manicures at Bella Gia. It is a great spa experience vs the average nail salon. My Manicurist is Angela is the best! Lourdes K
Jessica is great. She’s been my go to brow person for several years. She listens to what you want , is professional and very gentle. You will be delighted with the results and will become a regular. I highly recommend her. She’s the best, The spa is very tranquil and conveniently located. Chris B
I love this place! I see Jessica for eyebrow waxing, and Nina for Shellac manicures. The service is always great, rarely running late, prices are decent and comparable to other spa/salons, and I just love coming and having a little bit of me time. I have never been for any other services than the 2 listed above so I can’t comment on them, but I imagine they are great as well! Marlene G
This is a very nice salon, there are lots of stylist and they all seem to be very talented. I go to Natalie and she is AMAZING!! I will be a customer here forever! Plus they have a day spa so you can get your nails done, a facial etc.. Cuts, color, extensions… They do it all! I highly recommend this place. Janelle A
The massage I had was amazing! I treated myself to an hour and a half massage. It was expensive…$135…but Jasmine was amazing. She really understands how muscles and pressure points work. Jen B
I trust no one to touch my eyebrows except for Jessica. I’ve been going to her for 5 years and am happy every time I leave. I’m much more willing to pay to get my eyebrows done in a spa environment than save a few dollars (literally) by getting them done at a nail salon. Its important that brows are shaped to an individual’s face and Jessica definitely knows what she’s doing. For those who are considering an eyebrow wax for the first time or looking for somewhere new, I highly recommend you try this place. I usually go every 4weeks, right around the time I start resembling Gargamel. I walk in with caterpillars on my face and leave feeling like a butterfly. —Lucky M
Michelle was great. I was very pleased with the cut, color and highlights. She was very professional and helpful when helping me decide what to get done as far as cut and highlight color for my hair. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a great stylist and colorist. Thank you Michelle!! I also had a great 30 minute deep tissue massage from Slavic. I also recommend him for anyone looking for a great deep tissue and relaxing massage. — Leticia D
I’ve been going to Jessica G. for many years and I couldn’t be happier! The services are always professional and caring. I am often complemented on how great my eyebrows look. Jess, not only shapes them perfectly to my features, but tints them so they look full and natural. (No sign of the gray) Her Yon-Ka Anti- Aging Facial enhances my skin fresh, smooth, soft and glowing! A very effective must-have tool in the battle against aging skin. It’s always a pleasure going to Jess at Bella Gia. — Gina D
My husband and I recently moved to San Diego from the east coast. Relocating due to military orders can be an adjustment, but luckily I found Bella Gia Salon and Spa and didn’t have to shop around before finding the one that is prefect for me. Bella Gia Salon and Spa has everything all in one location. I have been very pleased with the services provided. I have had eye brow waxes and a facial provided by Vika. And Michele is a wonderful stylist, she gave an excellent conditioning treatment, cut and color/highlights and recommended products for my hair type. I definitely recommend this salon and spa! The people and service are great and prices are comparable to other salon and spas in the area. – LeAnn W.
I’ve been receiving services here for a long time. If u would like to get your money’s worth, go here for your massages and skin care!!! My skin is very important to me. And there is only one person I trust when it comes to getting my waxing and facials, that’s Jessica Gomez at Bella Gia spa. If your looking for perfect skin care, trust me this woman is as close as u can get to perfect !!!! – Colleen L.
I have been coming here for years and love this place. Always a pleasure and my hair looks better and better each time I go. Definitely recommend this to all of my friends. The only downfall is that they are super busy, so book your appointment ahead of time! Also, try Jessica for eyebrows and facials, she’s a rockstar!!! – Julia A
Jessica Gomez and Bella Gia Salon and Day Spa are the best in San Diego! Jessica is an amazing Esthetician at the spa. Yesterday during the San Diego power outage, Jessica was performing my facial and waxing services. Being the highly skilled professional she is, Jess did not let a blackout stop her from completing my services. After lighting a few more candles, Jessica did not miss a beat. My services were as top notch as ever and Jessica a miracle worker. I can’t recommend Jessica highly enough. Try her out, you will not be disappointed! – Liz N.
I’ve been a loyal client of Jessica Gomez for the past 5 years. She truly cares about her customers, pays attention to detail, and my brows are consistently amazing!!! – Yvonne H.
FAYE is the BEST! She cut my hair the other day and I absolutely love it! I am definitely going back for my next haircut and color. She was so great to talk to and did the best job on my hair since I moved to San Diego 4 years ago. I’ve finally found a great salon in SD and can stop driving an hour to my old salon. I love this place and all the stylists (especially Faye)! – Hannah B.
I’ve been a long and loyal client of Jessica Gomez for the past 5 years. She pays attention to detail and I always get compliments on my brows thanks to her! – Yvonne Houston
I have been going to Jessica Gomez for waxing services for 5+ years. She is a perfectionist and makes sure my eyebrows look stunning every time! Jessica is so sweet and truly cares about her clients. – Cara Kaminsky
I tried contacted one of your hair stylist regarding hair extension several times no response. The salon has great estheticans, you leave there feeling like you have new skin. – Alana Maye
Beautiful and soothing spa! Jessica G is an amazing esthetician! I always look and feel so refreshed after one of her facials! – Heather Airy
