Welcome to Salon Bella, Whidbey Island's Premier Green salon
We are Talmadge Hickman and Chelsie Perkins. Our mission is to awaken your beauty.
We have established an upbeat, modern salon where we could not feel more blessed to get to do this for a living. At the same time we are bringing out you beauty, we are helping keep the earth beautiful too. Through our partnership with Green Circle Salons, we recycle our salon's waste products, including plastics, papers, foils and even unused hair color.
