1. How long have you been in business in Chelmsford and why did you decide to open Beleza?
I have been in business in Chelmsford for close to 3 years now and I chose to open Beleza for the clear passion I have for everything beauty. I love making others smile and feel their best. I have been in this industry as a Professional Makeup Artist for close to 20 years and as an esthetician for 8 years. I enjoy what I do and wanted to expand my business to offer hair, nails and massage services.

Beleza offers a calm, tranquil and clean environment with a professional, well educated and accomodating staff who makes the experience for the client that more inviting.
3. You guys also do a lot of charity work- for example your events- why is this important to do? What do you enjoy about it?
I love to give back to the community and to other charities outside the area that are dear to my heart. Throughout my life, I have always been involved in charity work and believe it is just as rewarding as a business to have the opportunity and means to help those who are in need.
