Frequently Asked Questions


How does HellaBella work?
HellaBella is an app that lets you easily book a service at a nearby nail salon with just a couple of taps. All payment and tipping is taken care of in the app, and when you arrive at the salon, you get to skip the line. When your service is complete you can simply leave.

Where is HellaBella available?
Right now, we’re available in Midtown Manhattan near Bryant Park. If you work in the area, download the app to check it out. If Midtown isn’t convenient for you, let us know what neighborhood you’d like us to come to next.

Does HellaBella actually pass my tip along to my manicurista?
Yes, we 100% do. Your tip in the app is paid 100% in cash to your nail technician. They know that, and the salon where they work knows that. We are totally committed to having a successful, fair, and transparent relationship with our salons.

What if I need to change an appointment?
In the HellaBella app, you can tap “Bookings” in the bottom navigation and edit any appointment.

What if I need to cancel an appointment?
You can cancel an appointment in the HellaBella app within you “Bookings.”

What happens if I miss an appointment?
You can always modify or cancel an appointment in the app, but if you miss an appointment completely, that creates a hardship for our salon partners who have planned to service you. For your first missed appointment, we will work with you on a refund. Beyond that, we simply can’t take that money away from our salons, and will not be able to refund you. In cases of extenuating circumstances we will work with you on a case-by-case basis the absolute best we can.

How much does HellaBella cost? How do you make money?
HellaBella charges a minimal service fee of $1 that allows us to reserve your spot, and pay for your service at our salons.
