This week’s focus on local business belongs to ‘Vella Hair’ which is situated on Glebe Street in Kahibah.

The business is family owned by none other than – the ‘Vellas’ which is obviously how the salon acquired its name.

Michelle Vella, Hope Vella, and Tahli Oakes of Vella Hair, Kahibah.

Michelle and Jeff Vella from Bonnells Bay, purchased the salon in early 2017 and haven’t looked back!

Their daughter Hope has been hairdressing for 4 years and always dreamed of running a salon. Her hair is always immaculately coloured and styled and she definitely makes the salon attractive to clients.

Michelle is apprenticing in the salon, and admits hairdressing was something she had always aspired to in her youth, but her mother had steered her away from it.

Better late than never, Michelle decided to bite the bullet, buy the salon with her husband and go to work with her daughter.

Family business isn’t foreign to the Vellas. They also own ‘Dittos’ Pizza shop in Toukley, and
Michelle’s husband Jeff has been busily fitting out the hair salon with some remarkable carpentry.

The Vella ladies are also joined by Tahli Oakes, a senior hairdresser who travels in for every shift from Stockrington; no mean feat for the young mother of 3.

The salon is on Facebook where there is a full list of all treatments available, including barbering, hair extensions, keratin treatments, late night appointments and more!
