New and Exciting at Bellacara (Cheers!)

Many of you may have noticed that we have shut off our second room. We have added a door, changed the furniture, painted, and created a stir with many of you wondering what is happening back there. Well, I am excited to share that we have created a studio space for makeovers, express facials, and our ever-popular Dr. Dennis Gross professional peels.


We are in the process of creating classes that will be held there teaching makeup and false lash applications. We will now be able to host small makeover parties for you and your girlfriends, complete with sips and treats without the curious eyes of other shoppers.


We have a team of new artists all being trained on the store and helping to come up with a menu of options for you to experience. It isn’t quite finished yet, but we hope to have everything set by November in time for the holidays. So if you think you’d like to book a party or are interested in classes, please give us a call or email us and let us know what you’d like to see happen. We are open to suggestions and excited at all the opportunities it will afford us to share with you.

Stay tuned!!


  • The latest from Angela
I have been a beauty junkie for what seems like forever, but before I did anything about it, I went to law school. (Yes, my life is a little like the reverse of Legally Blonde.) Then, I worked as a prosecutor in Sonoma County after which I moved to the DC area with my husband in ’97. I served as Majority Counsel to the Senate Banking Committee followed by a year-long stint at a lobbying firm. You get the picture. It was then that I decided to act on my dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Finding my favorite beauty products proved to be impossible without stepping foot in a mall–the horror. So, I decided to bring my favorites to Alexandria. A few trips to New York and a flight to France and Bellacara was born in March 2000.

Located in historic Old Town Alexandria, for more than 17 years Bellacara has been Northern Virginia's preeminent boutique for high end cosmetic, skincare and haircare products. At Bellacara you will find premiere beauty products that have been carefully edited by the store’s owner, Angela Sitilides, who personally tests all the products sold in store. The boutique carries only the best product lines – Kiehl’s, Jouer, Dr. Dennis Gross, Christophe Robin, Moroccan Oil, Bumble & Bumble, Fresh, Molton Brown, Skinceuticals, Smashbox, Stila, Mario Badescu, Clarins, Dermalogica, Kevyn Aucoin, Kai, Child, St. Tropez, Smith and Cult, and many more.
