Got a beautiful cut, gloss treatment and blowout done here the other day before my sister's bridal shower and couldn't be happier. I felt like the stylist really listened to what I wanted and even went over pictures with me to be sure we were on the same page. More...

I have been going to Rebecca at Bella Bethesda for about two years now and wouldn’t go anywhere else! Not only is she caring and thoughtful to her clients but she is a true color magician and has made my blonde hair multidimensional and exceedingly well blended. From the minute you walk in the door, you are warmly greeted by the team at Bella and treated like family. I’m former military and have seen stylists around the world and can attest that from Rebecca’s expertise, Gloria’s incredible head massages, and the great customer service, this place is a true gem!

UPDATE: Lindsay, the owner, reached out to me after seeing my review and offered me a redo. She put in some face framing layers, told me I had some damaged ends that needed to come off, gave me a treatment, and advised me on styling. Even though it seemed like she cut almost nothing off, whatever she did made a big difference. My hair is falling nicely now and I am getting compliments on the cut. She recommended a couple of stylists for future cuts. I would go back now. Thanks, Lindsay.I recently went to Bella for the first time. I hadn't had a cut for a few months and wanted to splurge on a really good cut. I chose Bella based on the reviews and made an appointment with one of the more experienced stylists. The cut was ok, but it was no better than haircuts that cost half the price. The stylist was remarkably quick, and none of my colleagues even noticed that I had gotten a haircut. I won't be going back. More...
I've been going to Gloria in bella Bethesda for all my hair treatments!! She is simply amazing! Does a great job every single time. And overall the salon is amazing. They give the best customer service. I highly recommend this place for anyone who needs a quality haircut, color or any treatment for a reasonable price! More...
Love this Place! Nicole did an amazing job on my color and cut. I feel amazing! So grateful! :)
I am beyond thrilled with my results, and I can't recommend Bella Bethesda enough! Ashley expertly blended my hair and fixed my faded ombre by darkening my hair while letting subtle highlight shine through. I had a general idea of what I wanted: going darker so my roots don't show while growing my hair out, keeping subtle highlights, and having a healthier look. She gave me exactly what I was looking for. Couldn't be happier! More...
Today was the first time going to this salon. Let me tell you I couldn't be happier. As soon as I walked it the welcoming staff was so friendly. They hung up my coat, gave me a little robe, and offered me a drink. I saw the stylist named Ashley and she did an absolute amazing job on my hair. She listened to what I asked for and delivered. I was nervous at first because I wasn't sure how'd they'd be with my hair (super think, curly, & wild mixed hair) but she washed, cut (while it was curly), and blow-dried my hair for an amazing price! & again looked amazing. She was super nice & sweet. My experience was perfect & I can't wait to go back. I would definitely recommend. More...
worth the wait. love you guys!!
Friendly staff and great haircuts. Bella Bethesda is conveniently located in the heart of Bethesda.
The absolute best salon in the area!
What a cute little salon! I came here looking for someone expert in cutting women's short hair. Nicole was the one doing it, and she's not too bad! I never had anyone dry cut my hair, so that was a new experience, but it turned out alright! The cost was a bit steep, but since I was desperate to get a haircut and my usual guy was on vacation, I figured it was worth it. The salon is clean and cozy and very well lit. It's located on the second floor, so you can't really see it from street level on Elm Street. Just look for the Potbelly's and you're there. There's an ATM just outside the salon to get cash to tip the stylist. The salon is happy to break change for you as well. More...
I came here for a trim the day before my wedding, and Demetrius did an amazing job
I had a lovely time here! The staff is really nice and very professional. And even though I wasn't satisfied with my first haircut, they were happy to redo it for me free of cost! Now that's service! I'm looking forward to my next haircut. More...
I had a vision for my hair: I knew that I wanted it super short and with highlights. I took a picture from google with me of course, but I definitely needed assistance with the details. Ashley was my stylist and she did an AMAZING job! I feel much more like myself, and I have gotten TONS of compliments. I added the purple color (overtone) myself, but the ground work was all Ashley''s masterpiece! I am SO happy with it! I have included a before photo, the photo of Ashley's work (before the purple), and one after I added the color. I requested highlights so that the overtone would pop more. She did an amazing job getting the highlights as blond as possible (see photo). I couldn't have imagined just how much this wonderful vision of a haircut would boost my confidence! Additionally, Bella Bethesda is a wonderful salon. They give you cute robes to wear, super delicious lemon water and coffee/tea if you'd like, and there are lots of windows so it's sunny and inviting! You must check out Bella Bethesda for an awesome new look! =D More...
Great place for a haircut and styling, the staff is amazing and has great personality. I enjoy every visit.
Little wait times and friendly staff. Clean bathroom. Haircuts are great, but it can be expensive. Worth the money

The best salon in the metro area.
A day after writing a review stating that l left the salon unhappy with the haircut and color I received, the owner called me from her home on a Saturday morning and offered to make things right. She was very kind and offered to have me come in again and leave satisfied with my hair. However, scheduling conflicts prevented that from happening. So instead she gave me a refund and I scheduled to have another attempt with a different stylist in the coming weeks. More...
Lauren is fabulous! Got great balayage and a cut. Great customer service, friendly and professional. Very glad I found a salon in the area!
Pricey but I liked the haircut that I received. The hair stylist helped me with donating my hair to charity. I would not recommend getting a DevaCurl cut here though. They immediately wanted to wash my hair with shampoo and cut it wet even though I specifically requested a DevaCurl cut. More...
I've been going here for years and love my stylist Kathryn. I only wish they'd put more comfortable furniture in the lobby.
Bella Bethesda is such a great salon! It is a nice and clean environment that is really easy to get to with the metro. I can’t comment on their highlights, but their standard cuts are wonderful.

Ngoc did an excellent haircut. My husband had been deployed a year, and I was badly in need of getting the ends trimmed off and a decent current long style ;-) had no problem getting an appointment; and when called slightly lost on the streets of Bethesda, the nice lady walked me to finding this hidden jewel on 2nd floor of Elm St. For those afraid a salon recommends colors or products, they did none of that. Great experience! More...
Bella Bethesda Salon is truly a hidden jewel tucked away in one of Montgomery County's trendiest areas. If you want to see a master class of styling being done, I highly recommend checking this place out. With professionals of every level and experience, disappontment is a word that is nonexistent here. From the courteousness of Miss Ashlyn at the front desk to personal checkups from the owner, Miss Lindsey, it is money well spent. I will only allow my hair to be worked on by Miss Jaime...and this place represents the best! Respectfully yours, Mr. Steven. More...
Awesome place! Cara was perfect! Such a great and caring professional! Love her and will be back!

This salon is amazing. Staff is friendly and professional. Prices are reasonable. I've been getting my hair done here for years!!! First class service all the way, every day!! More...
