I have had different methods of hair extensions in my hair but the cold fusion extensions is the best experience of them all. Barbara matched my natural hair color perfectly and the extensions were easy to maintain. Thank you Barbara! I love it!Therese Van WertOctober 7, 2023
I’ve had tape in and keratin bond extensions before, but I am loving the cold fusion extensions Barbara did for me. She definitely gave me my mojo back after a stylist at Aveda fried my hair and then cut it way too short. I’m glad to have found her. My hair has length and volume back and I feel back to myself again. I’m obsessed!Lena PetkovaSeptember 30, 2023

Barbara is the best. I would never go to anyone else for my extensions. Her knowledge as an educator sets her above the average stylist. She uses the best product available on my hair. Not only is she extremely talented on what she does she will explain the best ways for you to achieve the look you want with minimal damage to your natural hair. Not many stylist will do that or offer different products specifically for you as an individual. Her customer service is top notch. If I have ever needed an appointment or had a question she responds immediately. She treats you as If she's known you for years after just meeting. If you are looking to enhance your look with extensions Trust your hair with Barabara.Dottie KosibaSeptember 4, 2023
I haven't had a haircut in three months since moving to Florida. I've always had a certain style that I get for my haircut. I only had a past photo of my hair to show Barbara- so when all said and done I was very pleased how my hair turned out. Not only did Barbara match my style she was very professional in answering my questions about what I needed. Barbara is very caring, straight forward and acknowledges who you are, she is not anything less, if anyone says otherwise then it is surely not true. Great 5 star experience!Ryan AldacoSeptember 1, 2023

My first experience with hair extensions were tape in. I came to Barbara to have them removed. They ruined my hair! There was so much glue. I was very upset. Barbara installed Micro Link extensions and I could not be happier. My hair looks and feels amazing. I get compliments daily. My hair is growing back quickly and getting healthier. Thank you Barbara. You turned a negative experience to a positive. I appreciate your thoughtfulness and caring so much.Shayna TurcotteFebruary 5, 2023
I had the best experience with Barbara at Bell Arte Studio today. I went in for a consultation for my first ever set of hair extensions. I was expecting to have to come back on another day for the extensions and I actually left with the most beautiful head of hair. I was literally brought to tears. After being down in the dumps for about 2 years over my short thin hair, I decided to just do it. She gave me back my confidence in less than just one hour. I highly recommend her. The second picture was my before picture taken just 6 weeks ago.Kim RichbourgDecember 17, 2022
I couldn’t be happier with my hair. I just left Barbara’s salon and my hair looks amazing!! I went somewhere else last month and my hair turned out terrible and she was able to fix them and make them healthy again. She’s also very sweet and took her time to make sure I left happy. I would definitely recommendLaser 360November 18, 2022
Been going to Barbara for over a year and she has brought my hair back to life. Her knowledge of blondes, extension, and product is amazing. She told me to trust her and has never steered me wrong.

I'm visiting here in Florida from Phoenix for a few days and after being on the road in our RV for over 8 weeks I was looking for someone to re-install my weft. Unfortunately I called around and no one would even schedule a consultation until late next week - Monaco Hair Extensions was extremely rude on the phone even though they rave on line about being the best around ... but that led me to stumble across Bell Arte via Google search and Barbara answered the phone. She was so accommodating, asked me about my weft, the brand and type of hair, and even though she wasn't able to install them using the technique she has mastered, she offered me other options (over the phone) and fit me in on a day she usually doesn't work. I went in and she gave me her professional opinion about what she thought would look best and be a better hair extension for my lifestyle and color/match of hair. She ended up installing Perfectress Private Links (2 pks of 14") and the match of color, was incredible - perfection!! I loved how she could fill in areas that were thinner than others where a weft cannot do that. I walked out of her salon a very happy customer!! So happy that I didn't give up calling around because this truly was worth the time, effort and cost - loving the volume!!Patricia HamptonJune 20, 2022
I have been coming here for a while now and love Barbara and Sonja!! The hair extensions are amazingly natural and blend with my natural hair. Highly recommend!!Regan GJune 14, 2022
I am yet again leaving the salon, and somehow always feel like I just had a visit with my girlfriends. I have actually been coming to Bell arte for over a year. I originally had tape in extensions and Barbara introduced me to the cold fusion method. It literally changed the life of my hair. I sincerely feel that my hair is healthier, and that the extensions are less visible. I can honestly say in my opinion the one thing I love about Barbara is she always gives me honest feedback. Example being… I thought I needed new extensions after it being a year. I literally recommend redoing everything. I have five packs and she was like no, The majority of your hair is fantastic. Let’s replace two packs. ( saving me a ton ).. it’s an expensive investment and I greatly appreciate someone that keeps it real and does not make me spend additional funds when they are not needed. I honestly cannot ask for more from my stylist. Also, her assistant- Sonja is top-notch and ever so sweet and kind hearted. I drive 40 mins one way to see these ladies and certainly don’t see anything changing.April LavellJune 10, 2022
I went to Monaco in South Tampa for two years. Hand tide sewings. Are just a weave. It will rip out all your hair. In the end their thread was constantly breaking. I have to drive back four times in three months to have them re-zone. Their stylus are rude there is no customer service. They would not refund me I asked if I could start over with a new stylist and spend more money. They refused. I wrote And honest review and they drop me in as their client and would not repair. The owner is stuck up rude and condescending. Trust me absolutely zero customer service. Once I confirmed with the front desk person in the formula they had used for my hair and had put in the wrong color. When I asked to talk to Krista the owner. She bald faced lie to me and said they use the same color. Ridiculous because they record all their phone conversations. several of their past disgruntled Clients recommended bell Arte. She uses a process called coldfusio. And it does not damage your hair. The hair is European and there’s naturally different colors. And it even comes in several textures including wavy and curly. The color match is impecable. I went to Monica with blonde hair and asked that they color it to light brown. The color is overdid it and it came out black. I was stuck with black extensions for a year. And my hair never matched l.The ends of the weave at Monico were always extremely thin. It just doesn’t compare. The thickness the texture the way it matches my hair. I may update with some pictures. She has multiple price ranges for those that may be on a budget. For different levels and the amount of hair that you buy the actual hair maybe a little more expensive than Monaco. But it lasts for a year and the maintenance is half the price. In the end you will save money. Trust me you won’t regret it! First picture cold fusion bell arte Dali. Second picture weave from Monico extensions in South TampaT AApril 12, 2022
Barbara and Sonia are absolutely AMAZING!!! I am very picky when it comes to who does my hair. I give them 10 stars. I had relocated to Florida from NY and have been looking for my new hair artist. I googled and read Barbara’s reviews and watched her video and said she just may be the one! It took me 15 minutes there and I knew yes! She is honest about your hair but she also truly knows her art of hair. It’s not an opinion. She works to make you feel beautiful not just do your hair. We are hair married for life lol. She takes her time but is finished at an amazing quick turn around. Hair extensions and color are absolutely perfect! Best I’ve had yet. I promise you will not be disappointed. She knows her stuff! She uses high end products and hair from Europe. She’s a true HAIR ARTIST and a heart of gold team. Love them both!! I have total trust when I am there. I can sit back snd say do your magic and leave knowing it’s beautiful. Meet with her for 5 minutes and you will know. Thanks for all your beautiful work ❤️India FigueroaFebruary 5, 2022
Barbara is an absolute professional! I have blonde hair which can be difficult to maintain, she took the time to educate me on products and techniques to have healthier hair. Love my extensions and honestly the most valuable thing I can say is that since day one I felt like family! Highly recommend this salon!Ananis MakarJanuary 22, 2022
Barbara is hands down the best hair extension specialist in the entire area. After months of research, Barbara was the most knowledgeable regarding the various types of extensions, organic coloring, and hair Botox as well. If you are looking for professional recommendations and gorgeous hair, I highly recommend her!! 😊Stacey JusticeDecember 8, 2021
Barbara did an amazing job with my extensions! The entire experience was easy and quick. The installation and color service together took about 3 hours for everything. I had always been hesitant to try extensions and am very happy that I finally gave them a try! I would highly recommend anyone go to Barbara for extensions or color!Brooke StefanskiOctober 27, 2021
You can stop looking for another salon. I can’t tell you how brilliant Barbara is. I moved here from Ohio a few months back and happened to come across Bell Arte Salon and so fortunate that I did. I am new to extensions and my experience has been nothing but incredible. Barbara is so knowledgeable and so passionate about making every woman look their best. I found a gem when I came across this salon. Thank you again to both of you for making my experience wonderful.Nancy PizzinoSeptember 10, 2021
Barbara is absolutely beautiful inside and out! I highly recommend micro link extensions and it only took her a couple of hours to do 🙂 absolutely obsessed!Nadia KovaAugust 29, 2021

I went for a consultation and left with my hair all done. She is amazing, personable, professional, with great energy! This was my first time even thinking about hair extensions and she made me fall in love with them. I had already told all my family and friends about her and her work. Looking forward to going back for a follow up. P.S. Husband approved.Katie PalsoAugust 15, 2021

Barbara is amazing! My hair looks great! I get tons of compliments after every visit!Lina BouayadMay 17, 2021
I’m not new to extensions and I’ve had the same hairdresser for years so naturally I was hesitant to find someone new work on my hair. I lucked out finding Barbara at Bell Arte. She is experienced, knowledgeable, honest, and the quality of her work is first class. I love my extensions and my highlights. I highly recommend Barbara and Bell Arte.Joanne HolbrookMay 14, 2021
Barbara is truly the best in Tampa Bay!! She has helped so many people in so many different ways! If you need your hair done right and want a true professional. Come see Barbara!!Thomas LessingMay 8, 2021
I have been a client of Barbara’s for almost a year now. She has an extensive background in hair extensions. I have had extensions for almost 5 years and she is by far the best stylist I’ve experienced. She is also competitively priced! You’ll get natural hair extensions and not break the bank!!!!Nell GoldmanMay 7, 2021
I came from Monaco Salon, and I’m never going back. Barbara is amazing. Very personal, and accommodating to what you want even on a budget. I look like a million bucks. Found my stylist for life. Cares about her clients and cares about the health and integrity of your hair.breanna frenchApril 27, 2021
The highest quality, most natural-looking hair extensions I've ever had! I've tried every type of hair extension you could imagine, over the past 10+ years. I'm so impressed with Barbara and the system that she uses. She can match your color, texture and uses a method that is non-damaging, and the hair lasts longer than the average 3 to 4 months, of other brands. A big plus for me because my natural hair can be very dry and brittle. I'm also impressed with the "Hair Botox" product that she uses to make my hair smooth and shiny. My hair gets very frizzy in the humidity, so its a lifesaver for me. Much better than the keratin treatments I've tried in the past. I highly recommend Bellarte Salon. 5 stars!Maria KellyApril 16, 2021
Went today with my mama and barbara was so accommodating and nice! Me and my moms hair came out soooo good. I got the Brazilian with cut and my mom got her highlights and cut too with blowout and we look so nice now! We were a mess before, we love her and will be back ❤❤❤❤❤The Enchanted RealmMarch 13, 2021
Today was my first time in the BellArte Studio and it was absolutely amazing! Great energy and cute salon! Barbara did an awesome job on my hair! She is knowledgeable, honest, and straight forward. I told her what I was looking for and she went above and beyond! I have found a great treasure by stumbling upon this salon!!Megan BessMarch 5, 2021
I am so glad that I came to Barbara At Sola Salons, she is so professional she cut my hair and my daughter hair and treated our hair by using Botox. I can see the difference in my hair 😍. I traveled from Illinois to Tampa just to reach Barbara Salon. Barbara Salon deserved the long traveling. I am so happy for the results that we have 😍hadia alahmariDecember 30, 2020
Barbara is AMAZING. She knows her craft. Perfect color matching, installation and care. Highest quality extensions. Barbara takes pride in her work and as she says your extensions “become her extensions” She is always a text away with any questions. Very caring and brilliant in what she does. Thank you!!Rebecca SchumacherNovember 21, 2020
Barbara was wonderful! I usually cover my hair out in public, so her private salon was perfect privacy. She did botox for me and gave me honest advice when it came to coloring my hair. She's experienced and really knows her stuff! I really appreciated her honesty and I definitely plan to go back to her again.MAS SOctober 29, 2020

I came to Barbara with a butchered haircut that I got at a different salon and she put extensions in my hair that looked and blended so perfectly you couldn’t tell I had a terrible cut. I would recommend Bell Arte Hair Extensions!Kimberly ChioneJuly 11, 2020
