ABOUT THE SALON
The goal was to have the best salon guest experience AND a professional but family based work environment with room for more, for everyone. In 2006 during many road trips to NYC and other various advanced education, two colleagues realized they shared a vision of what could be an amazing blend of greatness for the employee/stylist side and the client, customer service side. After LOTS of planning, education and 3 a.m emails, Viva Bella Salon officially opened its doors with 4 stylists and 2 receptionists in a â€œlower level studioâ€ (a.k.a basement location). Â We put the dream in motion with amazing people on our team and beautiful, humble but serene surroundings.
In a few short years we boomed, â€œfrom the bottom floor, to the penthouseâ€ to our current location overlooking the center of it all, across from Penn Stateâ€™s Main campus on the corner of W. College Ave and Fraser St. Marrying together result-based, goal-oriented successes and a desire to bring into existence a work life balance, we created a win/win for our Viva Family of stylists and the guests we transform every day.
“We work together, as a team serving you and all your beauty needs, as well
as crazy schedules and budgets. Â When you shine, we all do.”
