Leslie and James Engledow decided to venture into the salon and spa business in early 2015.
They said, “We see so many salon and spa professionals who are working hard but not being able to make ends meet for their families or their careers. We hoped we could implement a structured environment where we can teach over 50 licensed professionals how to make the most out of their talents. Leslie and James traveled to Florida where they attended Salon Summit Business Center, a consulting business committed to the principle of “passing it on so that the salon industry will be strong and prosperous for generations to come.” With this knowledge and training, the La Bella owners opened their doors in May 2015 and have developed a culture of honesty, integrity, trust and friendship for 25 employees and counting.
They decided to upgrade the well-recognized Waco name to La Bella Salon & Beauty Lounge. La Bella is marketed as the hottest salon and spa in Waco. “From runway to everyday, we at LA BELLA desire to create your individual style by taking every facet of your needs and infusing them with creative, customized designs. We deeply believe in catering to YOU.” Leslie confirms, “We know La Bella will give its guests the best salon and spa experience they’ve ever had. With our artistry, education and this beautiful facility, we are driven to give Wacoans the luxury of the high-end salon and spa that they have always deserved.”
La Bella offers the full experience…to indulge us in style from head to toe with their repertoire of services: hair, makeup, spray tanning, manicures, pedicures, massage, hair removal and much more. Their staff goes above and beyond to ensure their clients are well-kept, in style and always relaxed. They also offer complimentary drinks and snacks so you can truly lounge in beauty at La Bella.
