While spending time in the Caribbean, owner, Amanda Lee, 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.
Amanda is a third generation hair stylist and has been involved in the beauty industry all of her life. She was raised in her grandmother’s salon and was a fixture at her mother’s salon in her teenage years. At an early age, Amanda decided to pursue a career in the beauty industry and obtained her cosmetologist license just before graduating high school. Since then, she has been dedicated to high levels of training, education, and certification.In the over 12 years of her career, she has worked with local TV stations on makeover shows and photographers doing print work. Amanda’s passion and knowledge of her field has progressed and is portrayed through work. She has become exclusive with REDKEN 5th AVE NYC and participated in their advanced training.
