The house at 232 West Commercial St. has been standing empty and in disrepair until recently when Kris Weltman purchased the house and began renovations.
Weltman has turned the building into an apartment on the second floor and one of the regions few organic salons on the first floor. She has kept the footprint of the building intact, creating a salon that offers personal space for the stylists and the customers.
Providing their clients with safe, healthy and chemical free service and products is the salon’s mission. The stylists at the salon use organic products. These products are derived from natural elements and are biodynamic. The typical smells from hair salon are not present, creating a healthier environment for their stylists and clients.
The salon offers women, men and children’s cuts as well as color and highlights. Weltman will offer manicures using organic gel products.
Vita Bella also is hosting a small gift area that features local artists work.
Weltman and her family have been members of the East Rochester community for at least 17 years. Her children attend school at East Rochester Union Free School District. Weltman has been styling hair for 25 years. This is her first venture owning her own salon.
