Iris

Owner/ CFO

I have been the proud owner and CFO of Bellissimo Salon & Spa located in Friendswood, TX for 3 years. My biggest accomplishment is being married to my best friend for 20 years and our 6 children that we have had the pleasure of raising (our 3 boys, our 2 adopted sons and our step daughter). 

My deep rooted passion for physical and mental wellbeing started 17 years ago when I graduated college in the medical field. I also have 9 years of financial experience as a registered investment broker. I was extremely blessed to be able to join those two experiences, my passion to help others and my financial background, to form this amazing beauty and wellness center with a team that shares the same vision and passion. 

Our goal at Bellissimo Salon & Spa is to not only to provide you with the most tranquil ambiance but most importantly, to allow you to embrace inner peace and outer beauty by the time you leave.

Vincent

"Bellissimo"

Licensed Massage Therapist

I love everything to do with the human body. I first became an accomplished certified personal trainer in 2010, and wanted to learn more. I then started my journey for massage therapy there shortly after and instantly fell in love with how the two compliment one another so well. My whole life has revolved around sports, and there’s nothing like getting someone out of pain with sports massage and cupping.
