Personalized Hair, Nail and Holistic Massage Services

Maria Iannetta-Pokersnik, owner of Bella Sorrellas Salon and Spa, welcomes you to her boutique beauty destination nestled in the heart of the Victoria Arcade, a hidden gem on the quaint Medina Square. The arcade is renowned for its historical significance and enchanting atmosphere, where brick walls and vintage storefronts create a unique ambiance that makes it a beloved landmark in the community. With a luxurious selection of treatments and personalized service, Bella Sorrellas has been a cherished part of the Victoria Arcade for over a decade, and it’s obvious once you visit that it’s all part of the “high-end in a small town” experience. 

Tell us more about Bella Sorrellas Salon and Spa.

Growing up in a big Italian family, the bond between my sisters, Gina, Carla and myself was unbreakable. It was within this vibrant family environment that our journey into the world of beauty began. Our father, a talented barber, ignited our fascination with the artistry of hair and it was our strong Italian heritage that gave us the inspiration to start our salon.  And so, Bella Sorrellas was born with a name that our father gave us and perfectly embodied who we were — beautiful sisters. We have been open for 16 total years and 10 years in the arcade.   We moved our location a few times, but we have loved and been the most successful in the arcade.   

What services do you provide? 

Hair has always been our passion and we provide exceptional hair services for clients of all ages. Our talented stylists are skilled in the latest trends and techniques, ensuring that you walk out of our salon with a hairstyle or color that makes you feel confident and beautiful. Whether you're looking for a trendy haircut, a stunning hair color transformation or a glamorous updo for a special occasion, we have you covered.   

In addition to our hair services, we have a dedicated Nail Loft where you can indulge in luxurious nail treatments. Our expert nail technicians will pamper you with meticulous care, creating stunning manicures and pedicures that leave your nails looking immaculate and stylish. 

At Bella Sorrellas, we understand the importance of holistic well-being and the role it plays in our overall beauty. That's why we have a Master Reiki practitioner on our team who specializes in holistic massage. Her expertise in various massage techniques allows us to offer a range of treatments that promote relaxation, relieve stress and restore balance to the mind, body and spirit. Our holistic massage services are designed to provide you with a blissful and tranquil experience. Also available is our vegan makeup line offering lip gloss and highlighters, which are hard to find locally.

What’s trendy this summer in the world of hair? 

At Bella Sorrellas, we are delighted to share some of the hottest summer hairstyle trends that will keep you looking stylish and effortlessly chic all season long. When it comes to summer hair trends, one style that has gained popularity is the organic and soft fringe. This hairstyle offers a relaxed and effortless look that complements the carefree vibe of the season. The organic and soft fringe is characterized by its natural and undone appearance. Unlike a blunt or heavy fringe, this style features soft, wispy strands that frame the face delicately. It creates a softer and more romantic look, adding a touch of femininity to any hairstyle. Its versatility makes it suitable for a wide range of hair lengths and textures, and its effortless appearance complements the carefree nature of the season.  

How can someone new find you? 

We are located at 45 Public Square on the south side of the Medina Square. A couple of doors down from the Fire Station, you can find the entrance to the Arcade. We are excited for new clients to experience all we have to offer.  We always welcome stylists to join our team.  Follow us on Instagram at
