Krista Thompson


Growing up, I always knew I wanted to be like my father and run a business.  Watching him work extremely hard and have positive outcome was so motivating. With that motivation I started working at the age of 14 and liked managing my own money and it just snow balled from there.
I opened Bella Vista Salon in 2010 with the notion of a salon that provided a pleasant atmosphere that has more bonuses to offer clients than an ordinary salon. I wanted my customers to be offered the best of everything down to the smallest detail. I also wanted a comfortable and professional environment for my staff and offer them the best amenities to help flourish their careers.
I love hairdressing so much that it doesn't feel like work. I specialize in gray coverage and extensions, and I am known for my amazing short haircuts. I use bone structure and face shape as my guide to sculpt and cut hair. This way I can customize the look the client wants while taking into consideration their individual features. I use the same technique for color placement. My goal is to make sure my client leaves the salon looking and feeling their best!

Tawny Palm


I have been a stylist for 17+ years and have never been more in love with my clients or my art. When you sit in my chair nothing else in the world matters to me. I love getting to know each and every client on a personal level! Tell me about your hair goals, concerns, desires, and more. Then lets get to the fun stuff! Tell me all about what makes you, you! 

​I love being creative! I used to do art in school and was quite decent at it but never liked it very much! HAHA. So I get my creativity on by making hair my canvas. I specialize in multi-dimensional long hair and hair extensions. Nothing is more important to me than helping you achieve the hair of your dreams! My second top priority is making sure you feel HEARD and intently listened to during our time together.

​My husband and I are high school sweethearts. We met when we were 17 at Douglas County High School right before I began my journey into the world of becoming a hair stylist. We are travel gurus! If you ever want to talk traveling backpacker style across the globe, I am your girl! Or if you want to chat about your next vacation I love that too! We also try to go into the mountains every chance we get to go hiking or camping. And when there is time for a long weekend we try to take off to a beach!

Carly Speir


I am a mom, and a wife with a passion for my spin bike, Mexican food, and girl's nights. I've been a stylist since 2008, and I can't imagine doing anything else. When I'm not at the salon, you can find me doing something outside with my family and our dog. I love to spend time each week taking classes to keep up to date on all the new hair trends, the more education the better. 

When you feel great about your hair, it's easy to feel great about your life. I believe you should love your hair not only when you leave the salon, but every day in between appointments. When you decide to invest in me as your stylist, we will achieve beautiful and realistic results. I will offer you signature color and cutting techniques that will last, so you can focus on what's important to you.
