OUR MISSION AND PHILOSOPHY
Redefining the salon experience
We opened our doors in a modest 900 square foot space on October 1, 2009. Our team spent 6 years working hard in the original space growing our brand and furthering our recognition in the community.
In October 2015, we made the huge leap to renovate a 3,800 square ft historic building in Olde Towne Slidell, Louisiana. With the new expansion came new services and team members. This year, we will be celebrating our sixth year on Carey Street.
Membership in Intercoiffure America Canada (ICA) is a highly prized distinction held by leading salons. ICA Hair designers create the hair styling statements that establish seasonal beauty trends. Bella Style Salon is recognized as a member of this elite, professional hairdressers‘ organization.

Our sweet Lorrie lost her battle to cancer in November 2020. She forever changed our lives and The Bella Girls will never forget Lorrie.
It is our mission to carry on Lorrie Kauwe’s name and legacy. Being a hairstylist was her passion, and it made her so happy. We wanted to honor her by creating this foundation to help provide financial aid to individuals who are deciding to attend cosmetology school. We are working closely with the Aveda Institutes to ensure that 100% of these donations are distributed to the students most in need.
Our dream one day, is to have the Lorrie Kauwe Foundation grow bigger than we can possibly imagine, and provide a full-tuition for a cosmetology student. We know that would make her heart light up so much.
