Mini Media Meets...Bellissimo Galway


Tell us a little bit about Bellissimo

Bellissimo is an international award winning hair and beauty salon. Our stylist team and beauty therapists are regularly called upon to manage the hair and make-up for high profile fashion shows and tv programmes. Providing a one-stop shop for all your hair and beauty needs, Bellissimo has always had a loyal following of regular customers who are rewarded through our loyalty club scheme.

You also have a wigs studio and private fitting room?

Yes, Wigs at Bellissimo... We recently re-vamped our wig studio and private fitting room. We offer a discreet and professional service. 

There are two forms of wig wearer, the necessity wearer which includes those suffering from Alopecia or those undergoing severe medical treatment, and the fashion wearer –  those who like to change style from day to day to suit their mood.

Bellissimo works in conjunction with the Mid Western Health Board to provide support (both financial* and cosmetic) to the necessity wearer.

The Monofilament fibre used in our hairpieces is structurally almost identical to actual hair in both appearance and touch but without any of the drawbacks of maintenance, which is of huge benefit to those undergoing medical treatment.

If for any reason the wig does not suit the wearer’s needs, there is no problem exchanging the hairpiece for a different style or colour.

Please call us to book an appointment with one of our specially trained Wig & Hair Piece Consultants. * Please ring to enquire about Mid Western Health Board and VHI financial assistance.
