owner & stylist
Hi! My name is Alissa Johnson. Welcome to my salon-Bellagio Hair Studio in Troy, MI. I always knew I would have a career helping people. I believe in loving, serving, and caring for others. Those beliefs start at home with my husband of 10 years, our college age daughter who has an interest in teaching and mission work, and our younger elementary age daughter who wants to “open a spa one day so she can help others feel good like her momma does”. (She’s already asked me if so would help her).
I love owning a salon and working behind the chair. It’s where I can be creative in an ever changing industry and help others feel better about themselves. It’s amazing how a fresh haircut and color can boost your confidence and overall mood. I am aware and sensitive to the hair related challenges we face as we get a little older. I love using advanced cutting techniques and focusing on detail work. Overall, this creates haircuts that are easy to style and that grow seamlessly over time so you don’t feel like you have to rush back every few weeks for a shape up. Let’s face it, you’re busy! Who has time for that?! I can provide solutions to help you look and feel fabulous. In addition, I want your time with me to be a relaxing break in your busy day.
I have carefully chosen high performance products which are eco-friendly, cruelty free, common allergen free, and botanically based. I provide a range of products for home, health, and hair.
Are you ready for a change?
My chair is waiting for you!
I studied at the Douglas J. Aveda Institute in Royal Oak, graduated in 2016, and started my hair journey at Bellagio Hair Studio. My passion is to help people feel their best and customize each experience based on my clients needs. I have always felt drawn to the beauty industry and my desire to create lead me to pursue my career as a hairstylist! I love all aspects of the salon experience but specialize in highlights and balayage. I like to think I’m laid back and love for my clients to come as they are. My goal is for my chair to be a safe space where you can fully relax and leave the rest to me!
My name is Taja and I have been a hair stylist since 1995. I enjoy getting to know my guests and assisting them with finding a terrific cut and color to meet their specific needs. I am amazed at the endless possibilities in creating hairstyles and reinventing our looks. I especially like to play with tonal variations and extensions. In my personal life I love crafting, cooking and planting as they lend to my imaginative senses. "You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have!"

I’ve been a hairstylist in the metro Detroit area for over 20 years now. I specialize in not only cutting and coloring, but extensions as well. I have been certified in Klix and EHP extension brands in multiple techniques. Outside of the salon I enjoy spending time with my beautiful nieces and being active and cooking healthy for my husband and myself. To me, being a hairstylist is more than doing hair. Being a hairstylist is about building the relationships and seeing my clients smile at the end of their appointment. That is the ultimate reward for me.
