At Bella Bethesda we try to make your visit to the salon as relaxing as it can be. Planning your next appointment may be even easier with the MobileNOW! system available at the Bethesda-Elm Parking Garage. 

With this system you can now pay your parking meter through your cell phone and enjoy a carefree salon experience. Begin by parking at one of the select parking meters (be mindful of the hourly parking allowance at each meter). Then, simply download the MobileNOW app, register and enter your location number and the amount of time you wish to park. You will receive a warning text message reminder when your time is about to expire and you can extend parking directly from your phone.

Bella Bethesda cannot be responsible for the loss or damage to personal articles including clothing or accessories. For your convenience, we can hang up any articles of clothing and provide a robe during your appointment. Jewelry and accessories are advised to be removed during your visit to prevent loss or damage.


Bella Bethesda welcomes all well-behaved children at a 20% discount up to the age of 10. Appointments with one of our New Talent stylists will need to be children ages 5-10. When accompanied by a child, be mindful that most drawers at Bella contain sharp objects and chemicals potentially dangerous to unattended children. Running, spinning and climbing on chairs may result in injury and is strongly discouraged. Your vigilance is appreciated.


We will gladly apply the full value of gently used retail products purchased at Bella Bethesda for a full refund or toward another product of your choice within 30 days of the purchase.

We're committed to serving you. Since our clients our top priority, we welcome the opportunity to adjust your service to your satisfaction. It may be something quickly remedied by your designer, or you may feel more comfortable with a different designer. Either way, we want you to feel safe communicating with us within 2 weeks of your original appointment. Given the opportunity, we will work tirelessly to ensure your satisfaction, often at our expense.


Our goal is to offer a fun and creative work environment for our team as well as consistency and quality for our guests. Late arrivals create stress and risk a compromised experience for designers and guests alike. To ensure promptness and quality for all reservations, we may elect to reschedule reservations running 15 minutes late or later to another convenient time. Parking and traffic can be an issue here at Bella Bethesda so please plan accordingly.


Smoothing Treatments will require a credit card to reserve the appointment. In the event that the appointment needs to be cancelled or rescheduled, we require 48 hours notice. A fee of up to half of the service may be charged for day of cancellation on no-show appointments.
