About the Owners

Bella Bethesda Salon is owned and operated by Lindsey Dabney Cabrera and Demetrios Bafitis.

As Bella Bethesda’s artistic director and lead stylist, Lindsey provides creative direction for the salon and oversees the technical work of our accomplished team of stylists. Lindsey excelled at top salons in the Washington, DC area for over a decade before founding Bella with her sister Stacy in 2007. She is passionate about staying ahead of the curve on industry trends and techniques to provide guests with bestin-class service. She also serves as an educator and mentor for all new associates that join the Bella team.

Initially starting his career as a barber, Demetrios quickly grew to become one of the DC-area’s top stylists and one of Bella’s first employees. In 2017, his role at Bella expanded from stylist to co-owner of the salon. As a Redken-certified colorist, he is a driven leader to our team. He brings his unique and versatile experience to oversee Bella’s business development and associate education.
