Fashion forward salons for folks who follow trends
Bella! of Canton, 2809 Boston Street, 410-327-7872
Sassy! That’s the word that comes to mind when describing this funky little hair shop with its sunny disposition and waterfront view. Located in a prime spot in Tindeco Wharf in Canton, Bella! is quickly making a name for itself among those “in the know.” This three-person salon (plus one manicurist) is headed by owner Kristen Chandler, in-house hottie Jonas Grimm (who apprenticed under legendary New York stylist, Garren), and the very hip Lisa Jones-Butz (who you might have seen on Fox 45 doing morning makeovers). At Bella!, you can expect high quality hair care featuring Wella and Actyva products, cutting-edge hair cuts with all the trimmings, plus nail care. Bella has also been perfecting their Bio Ionic Japanese Hair Straightening technique.
“I go to Lisa Jones-Butz,” reports news anchor Sally Thorner, who adds that fans used to be very critical of her hair. Now she gets raves. “The kind of call I get now is: ‘who does your hair?'” she says happily. Other clients rave about Jonas’s ability to give heavenly head massages and bone-straight blow-outs. “All I can say is, ‘Oh my God!'” gushes school teacher Kathy Jakubiak, a loyal client who braves the 40-minute drive from Fallston to Canton to go to Jonas. Wow, those must be some head massages.
