There are dozens, if not hundreds, of decisions to be made around a wedding. From where to have the wedding and the reception, what to have, how formal or casual, whom to invite and have in the wedding party – and what about the dress? Or, your hair?
Good thing a place like The Bella Hair Co. exists and can handle more than just your wedding day hair (and bridal party), but all of your pre- and post-styling needs. “I have been doing hair for 15 years, and I started The Bella Hair Co. seven years ago,” said Owner Ashley Hurst. “We specialize in all color services, including balayage, blonding, root shadows, highlights and specialty styling – and we specialize in bridal hair and makeup services.”
Passionate about what they do and dedicated to making you feel like the best version of yourself, their space is homey and the staff is like family. “These girls aren’t just coworkers, they are family,” said Hurst, “It is so rare what we have here at The Bella Hair Co.! I am so fortunate to say that I have had the same stylists now for seven years, and we just recently added a new stylist to our team, who is a perfect fit for us.”
The salon is open during the week and weekends – the bridal hair and makeup adventure reigns supreme. “Ashley and her team made us all look like the best versions of ourselves, respecting our normal day-to-day makeup and not overdoing it,” said Autumn, one of Bella’s brides, “I would recommend The Bella Hair Co. to any bride!”
“Typically most of our brides need to book at least 9-12 months in advance for hair and makeup. We book up a year in advance for popular wedding months, which are May, June, September and October,” said Hurst. “Also, it’s very important to book your trial run 3-4 months in advance. Not only can we accommodate you and your entire bridal party in our salon, we also can travel to you the day of your event and provide both hair and makeup services for the bride and her entire bridal party!”

Brides are also in love with The Bella Hair Co. “Ashley and her team were super efficient. They arrived on time and had all 11 of us ready a whole hour before we needed to be for pictures,” said Erin, a recent bride. “Her team made all of my ladies look fabulous, and they knew how to do all of the popular wedding hairstyles.”
“We loved working with Bella! Ashley and her team are incredibly talented and wonderful to work with,” said Summer, another recent bride. “We were done way ahead of schedule, and everyone looked beautiful. I got tons of compliments on my hair and makeup and it looked great in my pictures.”
Curious about the other services offered at The Bella Hair Co.? Get ready for a list of your dreams: Blonding Services, Foilayage, Babylights, Highlights, Color Melts, Color Retouch, Haircuts, Styling, Specialty Styling, Keratin Smoothing Treatment and Makeup Application. Overwhelmed by the sheer incredibleness that is their list of services? Don’t worry, Ashley has you covered: “If someone has no idea what they want, that is where a good consultation comes into play,” said Hurst. “They may not have a picture or idea but can always tell what they don’t want or what they don’t like. Then, we can give guidance of what we think might look best with their face shape, skin tone, eye color and more, and then we can go from there!”
Finding a new hairstylist is hard – finding one to help you prep for a wedding and be your forever stylist might be harder. I know when I moved here, I spent so much time looking over Google, Yelp and more – the idea of a consultation to “check in” is not only a great way to get to know a new stylist and place, but also to see what’s possible! “If someone is a new client and wanting to work with us, we recommend first coming in for a consultation and then setting up an appointment,” said Hurst. “We also like to see hair inspiration of their desired look, and we can give them a starting price as well as an estimate of how long the service might take.” Kind of like going on a date before committing, this is a great way to check in on the connection you might have with your salon and a great way to see if your look is possible – and I know you’ve been looking at those videos and Insta posts of trends with me this holiday season!
“We hope you reach out to us,” said Hurst. “We are passionate about our craft, believe in kindness, connecting to our clients, creating something beautiful and making you feel a certain way. We hope to find you in our chair, so we can create something beautiful for you!”
