I've not experienced their stylists, but they sell Kevin Murphy so it's a win for me. Traveling from out of state and was in desperate need to the Bedroom Hair spray, so thankful they carry it!

I was in dire need of some TLC to my hair and the Bella team helped me love my locks again! They took me as a walk-in right on the spot and spent 3 hours correcting my hair. Thank you so much Katie for making me feel beautiful again! More...

I trust Kristen, the owner, 100 percent. She is an amazing hair stylist and expert with color. I just decided to color my hair after being mistaken for a grandmother twice in a month. Kristen helped me get through the process and my hair looks great! She is simply the best. And her staff are all kind and thoughtful. Just a great experience from top to bottom. More...

Good service and hair color. A bit over priced and parking is a nuisance. My daughter's cut went well. Hair looks good for both of us but again, pricey for what I've gotten done elsewhere.

Bella of Canton is a wonderful salon, I have been there 3 times and am so impressed with the salon and the service. The staff is so welcoming and pleasant they take care of you immediately offering snacks and drinks while you wait. Stylist Jessica is wonderful with hair coloring and I am overjoyed everytime I leave there! I definitely recommend giving Bella of Canton for your next cut/color!! More...

Had a great experience here! Very good attention to detail and what the client wants. Nice setting right by the water. They were very accommodating about getting me in for a last-minute appointment.

I called Bella's and had an appointment within a couple of days - loved that! That's almost unheard of and is such a great way to attract customers. They have a wonderful location on the water and it is very easy to park. Such a bonus they have a free lot for their clients to park in.I do have a bittersweet experience but, happy to say it ends well.The first stylist who did my hair, although incredibly nice and whom I enjoyed chatting with immensely, completely missed the mark with my color. In fact, she began to blow dry as if all was well but, it wasn't. First, it was obvious to me that my hair looked absolutely nothing like the photo I showed her but, what's worse is, my hair had gold/orangeish highlights and my bangs were a butter color. I brought my dissatisfaction to her attention and she really couldn't explain but speculated stating that she thought my hair might have had remnants of leftover brassy highlights and also mentioned that she used the wrong toner. I was as surprised as her because the only time my hair has ever turned orangey in color is when I went to a salon that used natural products and my hair didn't lift. That's explainable, as I understand natural products don't work for everyone however, I've had my hair colored/highlighted for two years since that time and haven't had that problem. In fact, before that, I've never had a problem with my hair turning orange!  Bottom line is, I didn't walk into Bella's with goldy/orange highlights. She did apologize and made an attempt to correct but, unfortunately, it didn't work out and of course, I was incredibly concerned about the health of my hair at that point. I had also been in the salon for 4.5 hours. Next day - I know the owner is reputable and I respect the fact that she has built a really nice business so instead of leaving a bad review and never going back, I decided to give Bella's a call. I spoke with Bebe who remembered me and who so graciously took me in, same day, for a complimentary correction with Heather who is a Senior Stylist. Heather was a real pleasure to deal with, knowledgeable and professional and while we agree my hair isn't there yet, it's a great step in the right direction and I appreciate Heather's expert skills. I can honestly say that I recommend Bella's Salon because they do have talented stylists there, they are kind, professional, and they are willing to stand behind the work that is done there and will work hard to earn your business.Thank you, Heather, for your great work on my hair and I will be back to see you.

Great hair salon! I called and had an appointment the next day. Staff was very friendly, courteous, and accommodating. Jessica cut my hair and did a great job, taking the time to hear what I wanted and offering suggestions. They do a wonderful scalp massage while washing your hair. They also offer complimentary beer/wine/soda. More...

Best Brazilian Blowout I have ever received! Jessica was very thorough in straightening each section of my hair in very small sections so that the process could straighten and smooth the hair as much as possible. She did not rush through it even though it took a couple hours. Will be back again! More...

I've been coming to Kristin for nearly 20 years now and I always leave feeling amazing. Kristin has honed her skills to ensure that you always looks great and can even help an indecisive customer like myself choose a look that suits my personality and lifestyle. The staff is always friendly and accommodating and it's easy to book an appointment online or by calling in. They also have dedicated parking spaces, which can be a real life saver in the busy areas of the city. I feel pampered on every visit and leave feeling like a supermodel, what more can you ask for?

I got a fabulous hairdo here for a party. Enjoyed the head massage during the shampoo as well. They use good products here, Kevin Murphy and Davines. They don't have a makeup artist here all the time so reserve that ahead of time if you need that service. This place is hard for uber drivers to find. It is on the waterfront side of the building.

All I have to say is WOW!  I made an appointment at Bella to have my hair and makeup done for an event.  Alejandra did my make up and her work is nothing short of perfection.  She knows what she is doing I highly recommend her.  I have had my make up done professionally three times now and she is by far the best makeup artist.  Katie did my updo - another beautiful job.  I showed her a picture of how I wanted it to look and bam she made it happen the first time anyone was able to replicate the picture that I showed them.  I would absolutely go back to Bella. I have to add that I have never received so many compliments on my appearance it was a great feeling! More...

A huge shout out to Jessica!....Have lived in Baltimore for almost 3 years and have had a hell of a time finding a person that can cut my short hair.  Have been to so many people here and no one ever got it right. It was just meh...until now. This has been my first experience in the past 3 years that I have actually gotten compliments on my hair. You know someone's good when your short wet hair looks as good as when its dry. Thank you Jessica :) See you soon. You know my back story you better be there and not move out of state in the next 6 weeks hehe. More...

Overall a great experience. Super warm and friendly staff, and my cuts w Jessica have been excellent. I have also come in for a fancy updo and left having never felt so gorgeous in my life! The only thing that's kind of meh is the price. Way more than I'm used to paying for a haircut in Boston, but since my other salon experience in MD left much to be desired, I'll just have to deal.

I'm from NYC visiting family and desperately needed to get my hair done. So I looked to the very reliable Yelp. Finding the right stylist plus colorist is very rare and when you find them, you stick with it. Amy Bees did a fabulous job! In addition to her warmth and easy going personality, she was very thorough and knowledgeable. I may very well trek to Baltimore just for her and this salon. Highly recommend both! More...

A true example of an elite salon. Starting with placing an online inquiry to settling my bill, every single interaction and process was smooth and courteous. After submitting an online inquiry, I was contacted immediately. The Salon Coordinators were not only pleasant and helpful, they were patient. Patience is not something you typically get when calling even some of the best salons in the nation. I was given undivided attention. I met my stylist, Amy Bees, and immediately thought this must be my lucky day. Her appearance and demeanor instantly put me at ease. Amy's consultation skills made it simple for me to explain things clearly, and she listened. I couldn't believe how beautiful my hair was when she finished.It's exactly what I wanted. More...

Been going here for years at this point.  I don't need to even tell Joshua what I want.  I just come in, sit down, and he does his thing.  It always comes out looking great and it's always super low maintenance.Most of the clientele are women, but this is a great spot for men who want easy, but still stylish haircuts.

Bella's is a fantastic little salon right on the waterfront side of Tindeco Wharf. Wonderful experience both times I've gone - Jessica has given me fabulous cuts and beautiful balayage highlights and lowlights. Not only are the results terrific, but the experience itself is very relaxing. Who hasn't gone through the taxing wait for color treatment, wash, condition, toner treatment, wash, cut, blow dry, and style? Let me tell you, ladies, Bella's makes the most of that time...especially on Fridays, when they have an all-day happy hour with flowing bubbly and free makeovers by their makeup artist! So there you are, Friday night: hair did, makeup on-point, pregaming accomplished. Snag a spot if you can - it was a spa-like experience. To top it off, the shampoo massages they give at this gem top all others - heavenly! I can't wait to go back in a couple months, and I'll definitely be booking on a Friday. More...

Kristen is the absolute best. She gives the best haircuts and my color is always amazing. I liked her so much I talked my husband into going to her. He had never had his hair cut at a salon before but after one cut he never went back to a barber shop. Even after moving to DC we still drove back up to Baltimore just to have Kristen cut our hair.

Ever since i started going to Bella, I actually look forward to getting my hair cut. I remember when I would go to whatever hair place was nearby and always have anxiety about what my hair would end up looking like. Now, I go in to Bella, have a complimentary drink before my appointment, get a relaxing and long shampoo, and then have a pleasant conversation with my hair stylist (Joshua) with a pleasing and consistent result. I've recommended the place to tons of friends who have all been just as pleased. More...

I have thick, long, mostly curly unruly hair. No matter how much I describe what I want it to look like or the pictures I bring in, it's very easy to underestimate and I always leave a hair salon a little disappointed. No matter how much I communicate, it never looks like it does in the photos--even at the salon. Also, "only cut off an inch or two" usually translates to four or five...or seven. I've learned to stop being picky and just go with the flow-- I've come to the conclusion that I just have stubborn hair. Tomorrow I'm getting my engagement photos taken. I've done my due diligence in researching who might be able to tame my lions main and make me look half decent. I saw Bella Hair Salon got great reviews and Josh was well praised. I decided to try it out.So happy. So, so happy!I can't stop running my fingers through my hair (I know it makes it more oily, but it's soo purdy!!) or looking in the mirror.When I met Josh, I did my usual-- showed him a few photos and prayed to the Hair Gods. He started asking me questions that helped him understand what I was aiming for and my preferences. He made very knowledgable recommendations based on my hair texture and amount of time that I was willing to spend styling day to day. He took the shape of my face into consideration by cutting in beautiful layers while still maintaining the length I wanted in the back. He also spent a great deal of time giving me styling tips and showing me how to control my frizz while maintaining volume. At the end, I got exactly what I wanted and I couldn't be happier!If you've had a similar issue, go see Josh! More...

I love Heather so much, that despite having moved out of Baltimore, I STILL get my hair done by her. She is amazing at color. It always lasts and looks good, many weeks later, even though she does my hair red, and it can be tough for red to stay for very long.Most people I know who dye their hair red have to get it redone after a couple of weeks. Not me! Heather also will work with me when I'm short on money, and just do my roots for me,then let me blow dry my hair myself..so that I don't have to pay the full amount all the time. In the three years I've been seeing her, she's not only become my invaluable hair stylist who I wouldn't give up if someone paid me, to a very good friend.It is well worth the time and expense to make the drive from Philly whenever I need my hair done!

I've been going to Bella for 12 years and have NEVER had a poor experience! The staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and extremely well trained. I always love what Kristen does with my hair. I've watched the staff grow and mature into professional men and women who do everything possible to make your experience a positive one. From the moment you walk in, you feel like you are their only client. I would recommend this salon to anyone...in fact, I have and can name several who are regular clients now, including my own 8 and 6 year old daughters. More...

Always a pleasure to go to Bella. I have gone for over a year and just love this salon. It is peaceful yet filled with a great energy. Kristen has made this salon great.

A real gem in the Center of Canton in Baltimore. I am glad I found Bella. More...

I have never written a review for any service good or bad but after the phenomenal experience I had at Bella I felt the need to go out of my way and write one!I have never had a permanent go-to hair salon but I think after visiting Bella once I have found the one. I have been experimenting with my hair from a very young age and every salon experience I have ever had has left me unhappy. My extremely thick-dark-long-curly locks have seen some horrible hair cuts and even worse coloring. I won't deny that I have made the mistake of messing with color at home but I always felt I had no option because salons could never accomplish what I'd ask for.I had an especially horrific experience where after going back to very dark hair last year, this March I felt I needed a change and opted for blonde highlights. The salon I visited (which I'll leave unnamed) left with me with a shapeless cut and orange/brown hair. I returned to said salon after 2 weeks asking them to correct the color to what I had asked for only to be told that it was MY fault that they couldn't get my hair to the color I requested and they would try to do their best. I left with multiple hideous colors throughout my hair and lots of orange/brassiness (which anyone with dark hair understands is the bane of life). I decided it was futile to return to the same salon, swore off groupon hair deals, and began my search for a reputable salon I could stick to. Upon lots of research (yay google and yelp) I found Bella of Canton. I read the reviews and it felt almost too good to be true so I called in for a consultation. The receptionist greeted me cheerfully and asked me to tell her about my hair issues in detail. At the end of my sad hair saga she told me she knew exactly who could fix it and even said she could fit me in for a consult within the next hour if I were free. Of course I headed right over and was greeted warmly by reception with an information sheet and a drink. The salon was clean, had a great layout, and a beautiful view. It has an upscale but easy going atmosphere that put me at ease instantly. I waited no more than 2 minutes and met Heather- an excellent colorist and hairstylist. She listened carefully as I told her the details about what my hair has gone through since the beginning of time and what look I was aiming for. She even let me ramble about how frustrated I was and what I kept being told by other hairstylists. She felt out my hair and took everything into consideration only to tell me that I have been told nonsense because she is sure she can fix my hair and get it exactly the way I want it all in one sitting. She was even sweet enough to be apologetic about how expensive corrective coloring is and how long it would take even though I was well prepared to pay the price. Heather ensured me that she would keep the cost and time minimal while making sure I left the salon happy. I was so happy with the consultation that I made an appointment for the following week. Before leaving the receptionist made sure I had all of the parking/tipping information and even mentioned that they have plenty drinks and snacks but would be more than happy to order lunch or heat up something if I were to bring it in order to facilitate my upcoming 5-6 hour appointment.On the day of my appointment I was in Heather's chair as soon as I walked in and she went right to work. With the assistance of what seemed like half of the salon Heather mixed colors and started her magic while making sure I was comfortable and understood what she was applying. The staff made sure my glass was never empty and I was comfortable as the tedious process went on. Every single person I came into contact with was extremely sweet and accommodating and made the whole appointment fly by. Heather gave me 100% of her attention through my whole appointment even though she had many assistants and could have easily scheduled in other appointments as they do at most salons. Once my hair was colored and dried heather thoroughly checked it to ensure the color was even and to my liking. She even threw in a trim (fixed my layers/bangs perfectly and took the extremely frayed ends off while making sure I didn't loose any of the length that I am oh so attached to) and a blowout so my hair looked flawless and I was the happiest of campers before I left the salon. I have gotten endless compliments and even weeks later my hair looks phenomenal whether I style it or not. I have visited countless salons all over the country and especially in Maryland in the past 10 years and can honestly say this was the absolute best experience I have ever had. From the extremely welcoming and comfortable complimentary consultation to the gorgeous end result- everything was perfect! Heather at Bella is now surely my permanent go-to. Heck I have been looking forward to going back for my root touch up since I left the salon! More...

I tried a few hair salons in Baltimore before I found Bella, and none of them even came close to comparing.  Josh does the most amazing job and pays attention to every detail.  When I was dying my hair platinum from my natural dark brown, he NEVER left my hair yellow, brassy, or uneven.  After I went back to my natural color and decided to go for the pixie cut, Josh was (and is) so helpful in styling and texturizing. I always get exactly what I want! The rest of the staff at Bella is awesome too. Everyone is super friendly and genuinely makes you feel good about yourself. Really, there's not much more you could ask for. More...

I have difficult curly hair that I tend to straighten, and I've had terrible haircuts at other highly-regarded salons in Bmore since moving here (an unnamed organic salon). I gave this place a shot because I can't afford to travel down to GA to my old salon every time I need a cut, and I'm glad I did. Great service from everyone in the salon, who were exceedingly polite and helpful, despite the fact that my color time took us way past closing time. Olga was amazing, listened to my concerns and gave me a wonderful cut/color - I couldn't have been happier. I should also note that I parked in the wrong lot, and Shawn walked me out to my car and helped me move it to make sure i didn't get charged. I will be coming back. More...

I have been going to Bella Salon for over two years. Since day One Shawn has always made me feel like a welcomed guest when I arrive. The Salon is always clean and Olga has taken me from short to long and layered and introduced me to color in my hair. I love her techniques and the support of the owner encourages her to always add to her skills. I also have her shape my eyebrows and get compliments on them all the time. More...

I love Bella of Canton and recommend them with enthusiasm. My husband and I have both been going to Kristen, the owner, for years. I have always gotten a great hair cut - and same w/ hubby. All the stylists are super-nice, and I've seen recommendations for them on some of the Baltimore and mommy list-serves I use (Andrea and Maya are two that get mentioned quite a bit). They also offer waxing (Donna), reflexology and the hair washers give great scalp and neck massages. More...

I like Bella.  The atmosphere is nice in that it's stylish and there's a vibe that is a combination of feminist beautification.  The salon is very serious about the stylists pursuing more education and attending "of the minute" courses.  It's nice to know that the stylists didn't just attend cosmetology classes in high school, never to brush (haha) up on their skills again.  Heather cuts and colors my hair, and she is very perfectionistic when it comes to both.  I always leave happy and get many compliments, even from strangers on the street.  My hair is currently short and I would love to go every 6 weeks but just can't afford it.  I think the cut is $60 before tipping out, so by the time I get out the door with products in hand it's more like $90 each visit, and that's with no color.  Luckily the haircuts are so good I can go close to 3 months before my hair looks completely out of shape.  I am a strong believer that you get what you pay for with haircuts.  The reflexology inspired shampoo is an experience to look forward to, and they recently switched to a more affordable, organic line of products.  I have a yogurt shampoo/conditioner set that smells amazing and makes my hair feel so healthy, after being colored and all.

I've only been there twice so far and saw two differently stylists, but I also got two fantastic haircuts! The first woman I went to was personable and talented but a little pricey. I'd love to see her regularly but can't afford her. The second time I went, I saw a junior stylist who was more affordable and gave me a great haircut, so I'll probably stick with her. And the shampoos are to die for!! I would seriously go just to have that head massage! More...
