Two separate business owners joined forces to create KZN make-up and hair team, Bella and Belle.
Besties in business and both recently married, we are completely OBSESSED with wedding day energy and vibe. We’re passionate about everything hair, beauty and health related. Beauty bloggers with a completely authentic perspective. No airs and graces. This is us – working moms giving our best.
I knew that I wanted to be a hairdresser from the age of 4 years old. I started studying hair in 2001, at 17, straight after I matriculated in 2000. I qualified in October 2003. I have worked in many awesome salons in Pietermaritzburg, Umhlanga, Hilton and Johannesburg, which led me to the opening of my own salon in June 2014, Bella Donna Hair and Beauty.
Opening my own salon has been the scariest but most rewarding experience of my life. This Pop Art–themed salon is a representation of me and my life’s journey, everything that I love and aspire to be. It’s everything that inspires and makes me happy.
People are my passion and owing my own beauty salon is my way of touching people’s lives with hands-on therapy.
Every treatment, from waxing to something more relaxing, is an opportunity for my clients to take a moment to relax, let go or have someone to talk to. That for me is a very rewarding feeling. Not many people can wake up in the morning and say ‘I love my job’ and I truly do!
My passion lies in skincare and make-up, but I enjoy every treatment. Opening Luna Belle Health and BEauty four years ago has had its good days and bad days. Being a business owner is not easy, but renting a room from Bella Donna and having Tracy, my best friend, b my side, has gotten me though it all.
Bella and Belle make-up and hair is the joining of our businesses and passion. We are so excited for what the future holds.
