Hello! My name is Rachel. I have been a hairstylist for 15 years. In 2007- I started at Salon Vigorous in my hometown of Duncannon- three months after our first son was born. I spent two years, learning & building a clientele.
Bella Donnas was our childhood dream & created by myself & my sister, Jessica Weldon, in 2009. We successfully ran two salons together- Enola & Marysville, over 13 years. I spent those years, having 3 more sons, managing my book & building Bella Donnas with Jess. In 2020- I was beyond flattered to be voted Harrisburg Magazine's Simply the Best Hair Stylist.
As of January 2022- I am on my own! My sister is doing well, pursuing other opportunities with her husband. I've decided to close our Marysville salon as of 1/1/22, to save on expenses & keep costs down.
I am so thankful for my manager, Whitney McBride, who has been with me for 10 years & has managed Marysville. She will help manage our team & help me on the backend.
Our talented "team" is amazing to work with. I trust all of them- that's why they're here. We continue to learn & grow, keeping up with current styles. We're all friends here, who help each other. We've always been committed & will continue to provide affordable, trusted services in a cozy salon, amongst friends, who enjoy what we do. Contact us today & experience the difference!
