I've had a bunch of spray tans here and loved them. They seem to last longer when I get them done here then when I go somewhere else. It's nice to have a spa in the Bon air area, I hate having to travel to short pump or carytown. I've had Laura and Shannon do mine and they both do great!

Outstanding gem of a salon! Found through group on, and have been very satisfied with the services. As a matter of fact, I will be swapping salons for services that I had been receiving elsewhere...Love the entire place!

I recently had the pleasure of doing business with La Bella Dona and I will have to say I had a great experience. They were extremely professional, courteous and were great help in working with me in making my selections. It was a good enough experience that I felt compelled to write a review. Thank you!

This is my first time writing a review, but I often find others' reviews very helpful when I am choosing where to go for services, so I felt compelled to post a review for La Bella Dona. My daughter and I recently visited LaBella Dona on the morning of her wedding rehearsal/dinner for manis and pedis. The staff, and owner, Nancy, could not have been more accommodating. They were all extremely nice and went out of their way to make it a very special day for us. It was exactly what I was looking for for a mother-daughter pre-wedding treat to relax and calm the nerves. The spa was clean and beautifully decorated. I could go there every week, if my budget allowed! I will definitely go back and try some of their other services.

DO NOT GO HERE!!! Definitely don't go here for "laser hair removal". Because it's not laser hair removal it's actually an IPL system which only makes the hair turn blonde. I unfortunately had to find this out because I found a spa closer to home. And when I made my appointment they notified me that I was going to experience more pain. Confused I asked why, and that's when they told me that they looked up the machine they use which isn't an actual laser. I'm beyond pissed because now I may have to look into getting electrolysis to get rid of the blonde hair that the IPL system made!! I would have been hair free by now If it wasn't for this place!!! What a rip off and waist of time!!!!

Hey Claire! Thank you for taking the time to write a review. First off, we are sorry if you had any confusion about what type of machine we use to help you achieve permanent hair reduction. I pulled your paperwork and I have your initials and signature on there indicating you were made aware that we were using an IPL machine. Secondly, in our advertising and on our website we advertise permanent hair reduction with the use of IPL. Also, please be advised whoever told you that IPL will turn your hair blond is being very misleading. The only way to "change" your hair color would be to alter your DNA, or the expression of your genes, which has nothing to do with laser hair removal, IPL, or any other form of hair removal. Here is a clinical study about the efficacy of laser hair removal vs IPL permanent hair removal. You'll see that there is no difference in both effectiveness or safety: I would love to talk to you more about this in person so I could help you better understand how permanent hair reduction works, what science is actually happening, and how it is 100% impossible for your hair to be blond as a result of treatment. We've effectively treated almost 5,000 patients in the last 11 years and we look forward to helping many more. I've discussed your concerns with our medical director and we are here to help you answer any questions that you might have! Thank you for your patronage.

I went here for a massage on the recommendation of a friend. They asked me questions regarding the purpose of the massage (sports related - deep tissue etc) before she got started. She did a great job, and I left there relaxed and tense free. The vibe of the whole place is very calming, and the staff there seemed genuinely happy to have you there. I'll go back again.

As I read the previous posts I was shocked. I had a facial at La Bella Dona and found the staff to be quite pleasant. They were very knowledgeable and helpful with all my needs. The owner, Nancy, made sure that I was pleased with my service before I left and invited me back. I would definitely recommended La Bella Dona to anyone looking for a great spa experience.

I had a hard time finding a place to get a spray tan, I'm new to the area. The spray tan I received from Laura is absolutely the best one I have ever had. i've tried to send her business but she doesn't take many new clients so it's hard but worth the weight to see her. That's the only reason why I'm not giving this an excellent review. She's awesome.
