Chrystia is the Brazilian wax whisperer! Out of all the places in Richmond, this is by far the best place to get a Brazilian done. Painless!

As a first time customer here, I have nothing but great things to say about my experience. I received two Microdermabrasion treatments from Cindy. She was very thorough, thoughtful and knowledgeable, which made me feel very comfortable. It was extremely relaxing and the result after treatment felt amazing each time. I would definitely recommend Cindy and La Bella Dona to anyone interested in receiving excellent skin treatment!

I have been going to La Bella Dona for some years and they are the best when it comes to waxing. Just ask for Beverly.

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.

First time Brazilian and chrystia spoke to me like she was my bestfriend. Even though I wasn't really nervous she talked to me and laughed with me and made my first experience quite calming, i loved how she explained each different wax and how they would be removed just so i would know what to expect... I think I tipped her almost $15 just because you she put that much effort into making me feel like I mattered and that I wasn't just another paying customer. The front desk girl was really sweet also.. chrystia is so worth meeting.

Beverly Robinson is hands down the BEST waxer in town! I LOVE HER!!! I'm sure the other waxers are equally as good, but Beverly's professionalism, courtesy, humor, and energy are just spot on. I used to go to another local salon, but I was consistently disappointed. I won't be going anywhere else.

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: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com.proxy.library.vcu.edu/doi/10.1111/j.1365-2133.2010.10004.x/full 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 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!
