About Us

Bella Trio offers guests two convenient locations in Durham, NC.

Bella Trio Day Spa & Salon is an oasis set in the middle of the Triangle located less than two miles from the hustle and bustle of The Streets of Southpoint Mall.

With a contemporary Hair Salon at street level, our designers offer the latest styles and state-of-the-art techniques using the exclusive Loreal Serie Expert Line.

 

Bella Trio Studio is located in the American Tobacco Campus (ATC) in downtown Durham. The campus has been transformed into a one of a kind entertainment district, complete with apartments and offices. ATC also features many restaurants, the Durham Bulls Athletic Park, DPAC, and  plenty of open green space, all under the iconic Lucky Strike smokestack.

Bella Trio has been a leader in improving the quality of life and helping to make our community beautiful since 2003. In order to continue leading the way in our industry, Bella Trio has created an exciting new concept in the spa experience with only one goal in mind – creating a unique and exceptional encounter for all our guests! Bella Trio offers a superior facility, the best product lines and staff with years of experience.

 

To guarantee the individual needs of our guests we are now customizing each treatment session. Appointments will be booked by time frame and pricing level rather than specific service. Your session will start with a thorough consultation with your provider to help determine what service options will best meet your needs. Our price levels are determined by the experience and training of the staff provider, as well as how successfully they have met the needs of their guests.
