Amazing experience! Barbara is truly an extension artist! She took me from damaged, shoulder-length thin hair to perfect hair, and I haven't come across any other salon in the Tampa area that offers the same extensions she does-- non-damaging, quality, and long-lasting. I'm obsessed with my hair!Annie KatzMay 28, 2020
Barbara is amazing!.. I recently cut 4 1/2 inches off my hair due to some bad hair color that did major damage ...I absolutely hated it and couldn't do anything with it . So I decided to try some hair extensions while it grew out .I knew nothing about them and I googled the best hair extensions and it brought me to Barbara ! ...She was so kind and patient with me explaining about all the different ways to do extensions and how to take care of them .. then she recommend what she thought would be best for my hair ..and my lifestyle and she matched my wavy hair and color perfectly !! She did exactly what I wanted and went above and beyond for me to make it perfect 😊 I highly recommend Barbara she is wonderful!!kassandra roushApril 11, 2020
Best in town for extensions and matching color!Alison FitzGeraldMarch 4, 2020
Barbara is absolutely, the best there is! She is so knowledgeable about color, hair extensions, and all the latest trends including Keratin and Botox, that you’ll never find a more talented individual. She is from Italy, and was raised in the industry, by her very talented and creative parents. When she first came to America, she was already a licensed stylist in Europe, and very knowledgeable about the spa business. She is the only one I’ll let touch my hair, and I’ve been a loyal client for over 15 years. It’s not uncommon to watch her fix someone else’s botched hair color or glued-in extensions. She’s a Master at her craft, and she really deserves more than a 5 star rating!Becky StepicFebruary 18, 2020

I came to Barbara to help fix a color and cut mistake from another salon in Tampa. Barbara was very knowledgeable in corrections. Not only did she do a color correction, she also did a hair Botox treatment that repaired my fried hair and made it shiny and healthy looking. We also added extensions to help with the choppy holes I had. It looks amazing now! I’m so thankful!Sonia AnayaJanuary 31, 2020

I have been dealing with hair pulling issues for over a decade. Desperate for a solution to correct my hair length and volume, I came across Barbara and her Bell Arte salon on google and after reviewing her work and her mission as an hair stylist I knew I needed to go see her. After consultation we together decided on the right type of hair extensions for my needs. I have gone for 3 appointments so far now and my hair has drastically improved in growth and has great volume! She is patient and listens to your needs and makes sure you leave the salon with your needs met and most importantly makes you feel good and confident with your hair! Anyone that is looking for hair extensions should go see Barbara as she is very knowledgeable of the latest hair extensions. Highly recommend!Holly JohnsonJanuary 15, 2020

Outstanding! So patient and kind with me. My hair looks beautiful and feels so natural. Barbara is so honest and knows what is best. I do not like getting me hair done, but I enjoyed being at her salon. I would recommend her to anyone. My hair looks better than it has in years. Her style is unique and it shows in her work. I can’t thank her enough.Kristi CalifarDecember 20, 2019
I found Barbara through google reviews. She was a God-send. My hair was damaged from a previous procedure at a different salon and I had to cut off 2.5”. I was feeling like I had no hair! This is the first time I had extensions. She squeezed me in for a consultation. Barbara said she was a hair whisperer and that is no lie. I didn’t have to tell her about my hair history, she could read it from my hair. I ordered 2 packs of hair extensions after the consultation and it was overnighted. The hair is beautiful. Again she squeezed me in the next day because I had to go of town. She is an expert. What a miraculous transformation! I have beautiful hair again. I feel good again. Barbara really saved the day for me. I am already thinking about getting another pack of extensions. lol. And thank you to Barbara’s other clients that I met who were so kind to share information about their own hair extensions. And an enormous thank you to Barbara! She is amazing.brenda harnischDecember 13, 2019

I went with cold fusion extensions because my hair is very thin, fine and straight, since getting my extensions with Barbara, my natural hair has grown SO well. These extensions have not damaged my hair at all, and with proper aftercare, they have stayed in great condition! Barbara has totally changed my confidence and my life! She is very professional, quick and efficient and knows what she's doing. Absolutely recommend cold fusion with her!Nicole HolsteinOctober 15, 2019

Big thanks to Barbra for seeing the seriousness of my situation and getting me in so quickly to assess my prior extention job. Even better than that giving relief by removing those terrible links that were installed. U really made me feel confident in work and I'm excited to have you properly redo my hair. Should have come to u first .Brianna DeandreaApril 3, 2019
I have been going to Bell Arte Hair Studio for about six months now after having recently moved to Florida and I can honestly say that I have made Bell Arte my home for hair. Barbara is very passionate about what she does and that is evident in her work and communication. I have ethnic hair and she installed micro links that look great and seamlessly blend into my hair. I would highly recommend her!Skiddit OfiicialApril 1, 2019

I spent almost two years getting heat fusion extensions. They shed all the time and I was spending so much money . Then I found Barbara and have been with her for a year . Finally my hair is growing and now I get Perfectress extensions. I am in love. She is amazing and does a wonderful job.Martha VancampFebruary 26, 2019
Amazing service! She knows what I want before I even do. The first time I ever got extensions so I obviously left them in longer than you’re supposed to and they still lasted so long! Amazing products and experience overall! Would highly recommend!!Farwa TahirFebruary 22, 2019
Barbara got me set up with clip in extensions and was extremely thorough and helpful with me from showing me how to put them in to actually going through each weft with me. She goes above and beyond to make sure you are content with your purchase! The quality of the extensions is AMAZING and I highly recommend her!!Kelsey RFebruary 1, 2019
She is the best in town and the whole Florida!! My hair had heat damage and it looks awful so I didn’t want to cut it all off and lose my sexy appearance 😉! So she recommended the extensions and look!! I have curly hair and she perfectly matched my color and texture. Highly recommended!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟Rosaly TorresJanuary 10, 2019
Barbara is the best hairdresser in the Tampa Bay Area hands down!!! She’s very skilled, efficient when it comes to time and makes you feel confortable the minute you walk in.Damaris LodewijksDecember 9, 2018
I'm so happy with my hair!! Totally worth the investment. My blonde hair was damaged and breaking. Barbara colored, treated my hair and gave me long glorious hair with extensions that blended perfectly with my own damaged hair. I had given up on beauticians. I would rather go to the dentist then another beautician. I stopped going for regular haircuts because all I wanted was a trim but everyone I went to was only interested in cutting my long hair off. Barbara actually listen to what I wanted and exceeded my expectations. I am so grateful for her expertise and help. I highly recommend Barbara's services.denise endicottDecember 7, 2018
I can't thank Barbara and her family enough for helping me when I needed them. This family owned business is really wonderful and Barbara is extremely knowledgeable, honest and kind. I would recommend her and her MUCH safer way of using hair extensions to anyone. Thank you so much:)1kunoichi1December 2, 2018
Barbara has officially changed the hair game for me ! It may seem like a big investment for extensions , but they will be the best and worth it in the end . It’s not a long wait for an appointment cause she takes time to fit you in her busy schedule. Also she’s the nicest and most thoughtful hairdresser I’ve ever been to and I’ve been through a lot of them . She’s also officially banished my brassy blonde hair forever ! ❤️Jess TempleNovember 21, 2018
I love love my hair thank you so much much BatbaBa you are amazing!!!!Stephanie Sowell FacklerNovember 15, 2018
Best experience! First time hair extensions this summer and it looks so natural and healthy. I love my look and no one can tell!! Barbara becomes family the first time you sit in her chair. She color matched my hair and curl pattern seamlessly. She will be my go to no questions asked. If I could give her more than 5 stars I would! Come get all your hair beauty needs with Barbara.Danielle ValeOctober 4, 2018
Barbara is amazing! I’ve been doing my own tape in extensions for about 8 months and was dying my own hair and basically ruining it, and Barbara has saved my look. Her expertise is worth every penny. I have micro links now and can actually put my hair in a pony without my extensions showing. The hair is so soft and silky and she did such an amazing job blending it nobody can tell it’s not actually my hair, heck I cant even tell! She doesn’t beat around the bush and tells it exactly how it is. I can’t fully put into words how happy I am with her services. I won’t be going anywhere else but to Barbara!Brenna McHenrySeptember 8, 2018
