Want a mani, pedi, massage, spray tan, blow out or makeup application at home? Call Ciao Bella.
At-home spa and salon services now available in Montgomery, Chester and Delaware Counties
by Melissa Jacobs
Ciao Bella, one of the PA suburbs’ biggest and best spa and salon networks, is now bringing its luxury beauty and wellness services into clients’ homes and offices. Offering hair styling, facials, massages, makeup application, spray tans and mani-pedis, Ciao Bella Mobile Spa is perfect for everything from proms to weddings, girlfriend gatherings to romantic date nights and self-care treats.
Ciao Bella Mobile Spa is an extension of Ciao Bella, a beauty network of 20 salons in senior living communities throughout the Main Line and Montgomery, Chester and Delaware Counties. While the mobile spa’s services are for people of all ages, Ciao Bella’s owner Tina Fortebuono came up with the idea while caring for her salons’ senior citizen clients.
“Sometimes clients couldn’t make it to the salon because they had surgery or just weren’t feeling well, or they wanted a private service,” Fortebuono explained. “Since my staff is already trained in dementia and senior care, the clients and their families asked me to take care of their needs in their homes.”
From there, Fortebuono offered Ciao Bella Mobile Spa to people who lived outside of senior living communities – and to brides and grooms, working men and women, stay-at-home moms, and everyone else who wants a private spa and salon services in their own home or office. Already, Ciao Bella Mobile Spa’s business is 50% senior care and 50% parties and individual clients.
“It’s a VIP luxury at an affordable price,” Fortebuono said. “My experts bring all of their tools to your space and create a beauty and wellness experience for you, your friends or your employees.”
Reiki, hot stone and pregnancy massages are on Ciao Bella’s service menu, as are sleep massages, aromatherapy, and cupping. Facials include botanical, anti-aging, hydration and eye calming. Makeup can be done as a class or for special occasions. Hair and nail services are customized to clients’ needs, and mobile spray tanning is available.
Appointments are booked through Ciao Bella’s concierge. “There’s no app,” Fortebuono said with a laugh. “My mobile spa coordinator speaks with each client on the phone to ask questions and find out exactly what they need.”
Because her employees are going into clients’ homes and offices, Fortebuono put security measures in place. All of Ciao Bella’s stylists and technicians passed background checks. Everyone is vaccinated against COVID-19 and can wear masks if requested.
Fortebuono is launching the mobile spa as she celebrates the 30th anniversary of opening her first Ciao Bella, a salon in King of Prussia. The Archbishop John Carroll High School graduate started her beauty empire with passion, hard work and the support of her parents, both of whom immigrated to the U.S. from Italy.
While Ciao Bella and its mobile spa are already booming, Fortebuono has launched yet another business: Motives Makeup. Available for sale online and in Ciao Bella’s salons, Motives Makeup is cruelty-free and gentle enough for all skin types. It includes lipstick and lip gloss, concealer, eyeshadow, blush and eyebrow care. “I am so excited about these products,” Fortebuono said. “I’m like a little girl in a candy store.”
The skin care line includes Skintelligence, which is all-natural and gentle, and Lumiere, which has anti-aging properties. “The quality is amazing and our clients love these products,” Fortebuono said. “I love a good lip gloss, and Motives is perfect for me.”
While the makeup line and mobile spa service are big ventures, Fortebuono is excited about offering her clients – and employees – new ways to experience beauty and wellness. “I want the best for everyone, whether they are in our salons, or in their homes or offices,” she said.
