Salon Bellus

The Story of US

Thirty 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!!

If you've been coming to Salon Bellus for a while, you might remember me. I've been in the industry for almost 20 years,  cutting my teeth with Chrissy and Lisa in my early years at the old location... I specialize in barbering, and all kinds of cuts and color for anyone. I love working with people and look forward to getting to know you all again!

I have a 14 year old son who is my greatest blessing.

Entertainment Coordinator

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.*
