While spending time in the Caribbean, owner, Amanda Bell, noticed all of the peacocks that made the islands their home. Watching them, she noticed the way they carried themselves – as if they were confident in their beauty. These beautiful creatures strutted around with their feathers fully spread, and if they caught a glimpse of their reflection, they seemed to hold their heads even higher.
During the planning stages of Nova Bella Salon and Spa, Amanda decided that a peacock feather needed to be the representation of Nova Bella because that would be what the staff would want for their clients – to be confident in their beauty, be able to hold their heads high, and really feel good about themselves. We hope to constantly hold to this standard, because to look and feel good allows for a better quality of life.
