I have been a client of Janica’s for two years. My haircut color and styling are always preceded by a consultation about my preferences for color and the length of my hair. She takes into consideration my hair texture, growth pattern and lifestyle. I never judge the quality of work by a new stylist on the first visit or the second visit because they are always going to take there time and do there best. What I value in Janica is that she is consistently excellent in styling my hair. The entire staff in the salon is friendly and work hard to accommodate my schedule.
In 2011 we relocated from New York City to Chesterfield. Finding a great home-establishing doctors-finding a good dry cleaner was the easy part. Finding a Redken colorist was another story. I had my Redken formula in hand but finding a salon that used Redken color was hard. Until I walked past Bella Genta Salon in the Valley. Tons of Redken product for sale as a lot of shops do but when I inquired about color I was told “we only use Redken.” Fantastic! I have been a client ever since. The staff is wonderful-well trained and they keep current on trends. Bella Gente is a full service professional comfortable salon. (And they make reminder calls!) Do yourself a favor and make your next color-cut-or service appointment at Bella Gente. I guarantee you will be more than satisfied.
My family and I have been coming to Kathy and Allyson at Bella Gente since they opened in 2003 and they are the best!  The professional and personal service is second to none, and they always know the right recommendations for our different hair types and personalities.  I highly recommend them to everyone I know- their expertise is superior to any salon I have been to and you will not be disappointed!  A hidden gem in Chesterfield Valley!
I am a long time client of Bella Gente Salon. I have been coming here for 6 years. I have CONTINUED TO COME TO BELLA Gente because of the excellent service and the expertise of my stylist Kathy Kucik. Each employee shows extraordinary service to each and every guest. The convenience of all the services that are offered from hair to skin to make up to nails is all under one roof.
Michelle is so honest in her assessment of my skin. I trust her completely with the care of my skin. She never pushes products or services so when she recommends something new for me I do consider it. Michelle is just as sweet as can be. She is the reason I keep coming back.
