Jacqueline Belus, master colorist and extensionist and owner of Splash Hair Salon and Spa, takes pride in her business. The salon offers a home to a diverse group of hair designers, lash and brow artists and makeup artists and is also an open door for clientele from all walks of life, Belus said.
Belus opened her salon in Indianapolis 22 years ago, but her path there was a little unconventional. Belus was a traveling teaching stylist for many years and said she had not initially been interested in owning and operating her own salon. But as she began to work at different salons she began to realize they were not as welcoming or diverse in their offerings. So Belus decided to create a space that would be.
“A lot of salons only have one image and only cater to one type of client,” she said. “Even though it [Splash Salon] was high-end, it didn’t matter, I wanted people of all walks to come in and enjoy the experience.”
Each of the stylists at the salon has received “comprehensive training in various hair color and cutting techniques,” which include creating customized hair designs for clients of all hair types and backgrounds.
The salon also uses high-end products such as Kérastase — they were the first salon in Indiana to use and sell Kérastase— vegan products such as Phyto and Goldwell hair color, Belus said. Any products that are used during services are also available to purchase, including various styling tools.
“We’re going to love you and take care of you,” Belus said.
