Following in the footsteps of her father, Kristen has been passionate about the art of hairdressing since her first cut at age 13. After receiving her professional license in 1992, Kristen was fortunate to apprentice under Intercoiffure world class hairdressers, Wilmar Sick and Howard Fong. Kristen has attended International World Conferences, annual National Symposiums and countless advanced education classes including Vidal Sassoon and Wella International. Her years of experience have deepened her pleasure and talent in the art of Hair Design.

Kristen's true gift and personal passion lies in the power of the makeover. Connecting to an individual's beautiful essence and drawing it forth is her honor. Transitioning her clients both loyal and new is what makes Kristen shine!

Senior Stylist

Emily Del Balzo

Bella Senior Stylist Since August 2021, Licensed Since 2013

Emily believes no two clients--and no two heads of hair--are the same. A 2013 Aveda Institute graduate, Emily often finds herself combining several different techniques to tailor her service specifically to the client--their aesthetic, their personality, and their lifestyle--to create an incredibly customized look. 

Though she has a passion for balayage/hand painting, Emily loves all aspects of hairstyling and has advanced training in both cut and color with esteemed brands such as L'oreal Professionel, Davines, Aveda, Pureology and Dry Bar. 


Her love of the arts has flourished beyond hair, as she also enjoys painting, sculpting and cake decorating.

Jasmyn cottingham

Bella Stylist Since August 2021, Licensed Since 2017

Jasmyn is an artist, through and through. In addition to hairstyling, she owns a  small fine art business painting landscapes, florals, and abstracts; she also dabbles in photography.


Jasmyn specializes in balayage and vivid coloring; she fell in love with hair while attending her high school's cosmetology program. What followed was a two year apprenticeship under owner/senior stylist Kristen Chandler, in which Jasmyn says she gained a "wealth of invaluable knowledge and education". 


Jasmyn's hobbies include photography, baking, reading, but her deepest passion is surely being a mother to her two young boys.
