Salon Bellus

The Story of US

Over 25 years ago, I (Chrissy) started out working for a chain salon in Southington, CT.  Over the years staff came and went, but Lisa and I always  seemed to remain. Owner after owner we continued to work as an amazing team keeping the place going. After managing the salon for almost 15 years under different owners. When the opportunity to become the next owner of the salon arose, I decided it was time to take the leap! On April 1, 2012 Salon Bellus was born!

Out of family, teamwork, and a love of what we do, we open everyday to welcome all of you and help you reach your best potential. Our love and compassion show in our work . There is always a warm welcome, a snack and beverage, and a comfy spot to hang out and catch up. When you walk into Salon Bellus, you are not walking into strangers, you are visiting friends!!

Apprentice Stylist

As a newcomer to the beauty industry with a long time passion for hair and makeup, I have a  love for  fantasy colors and I’m drawn to creating beautiful flowing curls and waves. I live to re-create fantasy through cosmetology. One of my passions is seeing characters on TV or in a movie and re-creating that character into a wearable look for every day clients capturing the essence of fantasy, ethereal, and the whimsical is one of my passions.

Jeffrey is an Eastern Painted Turtle. He was found in a puddle behind the salon a couple decades ago just like the rest of the staff.

Jeff is a hard worker (turtle-ing is hard) and likes to spend his time in the water underneath the waterfall in his large tank.

*Jeffrey is currently unavailable for appointments. He is on sabbatical for the duration of the Covid-19 pandemic.*
