My experience – I am new to Boston. About a month ago, as I needed a haircut, a friend of mine suggested to do it at Chez Bella Salon. He said that he and his girlfriend regularly go there for hair cut, waxing and other things. So, I decided to go there and had a haircut. My hair grows exceptionally fast and I need haircut about every two weeks. Anyway, I visited the Salon. I should say only one thing. They did a fantastic job. I really liked it. For the second time now, I had to go there yesterday to do my hair again. Really happy with the result. I should add that the staff is really friendly too.
Job Well Done – I'm always very nervous about getting my hair done because I had a short boys haircut growing up. I went in with an old picture of Victoria Beckham with bright gold highlights and Francisco did mine exactly the same as in the photo. Cindy did the cut and she also did a wonderful job - keeping the length and cutting off the unhealthy hair. I will definitely go back when I need a touch up and trim.
Great, affordable eyebrows – I've tried a bunch of places in the Boston area to figure out where the best place for an inexpensive eyebrow wax was. Dellaria's and Leeba's do a good job, but are so expensive; and Star's Nails around the corner is just plain awful at waxes. This place is great though - my eyebrows always look great afterwards, and at only $10 a pop too! I noticed on Yelp that they take student discounts (10% off); however, when I ask to use my student ID for a discount, they all give me kind of dirty looks. I've had it done by 2 different people - a small, smiley Asian woman who seems to be in her 30s or 40s, and a younger girl about in her 20s. Both were great and helped me to be comfortable and waxed/snipped to my requests. It's a clean place, but don't expect for the atmosphere to be high-end.
great place for eye brow wax! – cindy does a excellent job on my brows the only place i go to!
Thank you so much for your kind review and I appreciate your business. At Chez Bella, I always try to please my customers and appreciate any feedback you have to help improve my business service.
Always Feel Welcome – This is one of my favorite places in Boston. The people that work there are all friendly. From the moment I walk in through the door to the moment I leave I always feel welcome. I'm there every week getting my nails done. I'm always asked about school and how things are going. After a bad I go there and come out with a smile.
Thanks Chez Bella for always making me look and fee beautiful.
We thank your kind words and good thoughts. We not only want to make you feel beautiful outside, but we feel it is important for you to feel just as beautiful inside. Our customers are our most important assets!
Skilled staff and clean environment – My acrilic nails looks like they are real, so thin and well done it's unbelievable.
And my blow dry is perfect, their hairdresser has strong hands and washed my hair very well.
The only problem is parking, but is very close to the T.
They've done my boyfriends haircut as well and he loved it!
It is always wonderful to hear that the nail service is appreciated. It is part of our job to make the acrylic nails look as natural as possible and to make our clientele happy with their service. We are aware of some parking problems, but usually there are spaces to be found on the street and many of our customers have told us that this inconvenience is more than made up by the quality service we provide.

Well, i set up a 1230 for a hair cut and i just have time on Saturdays I get there 10 or 5 minutes early and he is there with a client and I could not see whether he was finishing it up or not. he just took the client -- he was working on her forever, so after 35 minutes of waiting and he did not even start painting her. and after that he took more one hair cut in front of me and say for another one wait 5 minutes he is just one and want work for ten The salon was loud, they were all talking so obnoxiously to each other that I could not stand to even wait. The hair cuts surely, it's cheap. But the men who does it the is a Brazilian his name is Francisco and hi not speak English and some time he is lost in job his instruments drop all time maybe he is nervous is not work !!!!!! . Trust me, for $20or even less than this (!!! just ), you can get an amazing hair cut in all Boston area in a professional atmosphere ,he look at costumer like money not likes a costumer forever .i feeling like a bill not a costumer never more.
Thank you so much for your posting. Our receptionist is on duty to help alleviate those issues. Do feel free to come in to discuss your issue with Cindy and we can make some accommodation for you. Francisco, like all our staff works on commission and it would be surprising to find that he would not accommodate you with an appointment. Francisco is one of our most popular and busiest professional licenced hairdressor. We keep very good records of all our appointments and unless you booked your appointment under another name, we are unable to verify an appointment scheduled for you.
fabulous, highly recommended – We have been coming here for years. First as young couple, later with the kids. Cindy offers very high quality haircuts, for men & women, and all additional salon services you can think of. We travel 15 miles just to come here.
Thank you for your kiind words. We are so pleased to have provided many families with such fine service over the years. We certainly feel part of the community, and feel personnal connected to the many children who started visiting us 19 years ago and now bring their children. Thabk you all.
