Q
What inspired you to create BelBella?
A Matie: “Coming from Israel with a curly hair like me created a big challenge: how can I find a salon that was worth the effort of going to?  When I found a great hairstylist who was willing to come to my house to blow out and style my hair I was thrilled. But then I thought, why not develop an app that provides this service to everyone?”

“An app removes the hassle of going back and forth with the hairstylist to schedule an appointment. Also, I don’t always have cash with me and so I thought that it would be great if the service would allow payment with a credit card.”
