PASSION. EXPERIENCE. DILIGENCE.
Pepper Alani Allphin - Owner
I was born and raised on Maui. I got licensed in 1991. I became an educator in 1996. My life then brought me to the Snoqualmie Valley in 2005, where I settled down and grew to love Bella Vita, and all the wonderful people who live here. I feel blessed to work with such amazing people! The gift of loving what I do and doing what I love is priceless! The name “Bella Vita” means beautiful life...Is it ever!
Graduating from Gene Juarez, I have been doing hair for 25 years in my hometown of Snoqualmie. My passion for coloring continues. I love creating natural looks from beautiful brown to buttery blondes. Don't worry though, if you're looking for a dramatic effect, I can get you there too. My past includes training with Redken, and Logics. My passion is having my guests leave feeling a bit better than when they arrive.
I went to cosmetology school in Seattle at Gene Juarez and graduated in 2014. I am licensed in cosmetology, eyelash extensions, and Brazilian Blowout. Waxing, spa, eyes, and playing with color and haircuts are some of my favorite specialties. I have trained with many bold and vibrant colors, and enjoy creating new colors and fun styles like cotton candy, mermaid, rainbow and silver hair.
I have had my cosmetology license for about 9 years. I went to school in Modesto California and worked for a few months and then returned back to Washington. In Washington state I got a job working at Bella Vita for a while. After a while I moved back to California and pursued the theatre side of the industry and got a job working at Disneyland Resort and worked there for 3 1⁄2 years. In March of 2017, I returned back to Snoqualmie to work where I feel most at home; at Bella Vita.
I attended Blue Stone Academy in Ellensburg Washington. I have had my
license for about 2 years now. I am really passionate about foiling and Balayage. It is so fun to combine techniques to get the desired look. I have worked in the Cle Elum area since I graduated and I have now relocated to the Snoqualmie Valley. I am happy to be a part of the Bella Vita family.
I started at Bella Vita in September of 2018 after working at Gene Juarez. I specialize in color, and I love blondes and neutral tones. I grew up in the valley, and I enjoy the community of people that comes along with working in a small town salon. I feel very welcomed into the Bella Vita family and I’m dedicated to my new clients.
