by Tianna G. Hansen

In the fast-paced day to day, how often do you pause and take time to care for yourself? Leave it to La Mirage Hair Salon & Spa, located in Bensalem.

With a mission of being dedicated to the art of beauty and wellbeing while striving for professionalism and care, La Mirage Hair Salon & Spa is a hands-on expert providing the best experience possible for their clients.

Over their years in business, La Mirage Hair Salon & Spa has grown – beginning as a small salon in the 60’s with two or three chairs it’s now bigger and better, doubling as a salon and spa with multiple departments designated to specific areas that utilize its space.

La Mirage houses a hair cutting area, coloring area, nail area and the spa area to name a few. Its qualities and the people who run La Mirage set it apart from other salons, and it reigns as a staple in the community.

“We’ve been here for a long time,” said Jim Contoudis, business manager of La Mirage. The salon and spa has grown and adapted with the times, keeping up to date with styles and techniques as well as welcoming a contemporary twist inside its Victorian interior.

The atmosphere is warm and friendly, with much of the staff retained for a long time and new staff members adding a refreshing flair.

“We take a lot of pride in this salon,” said owner Tina Macmillan. “Our goal is to care for our clients and staff personally and provide a professional service.”

La Mirage is always looking for opportunities to expand and update. On the spa side of things, come for relaxation and rejuvenation with a range of body and skin care services, everything from full body scrub exfoliation, mud treatments and body wraps to facials.

Massages offered at the spa include hot stone therapeutic, chair massage, sauna and more.

On the salon side, you’ll find anything you can think of – haircuts or trims, nail cure including pedicures and manicures, waxing, and make up application services. They also offer bridal packages to prepare you for the perfect wedding.

Some of their most recent additions include eyelash extensions and more to come.

La Mirage is a salon/spa you’ll want to keep your eyes on. They have grown organically, expanding their services and space to compensate the growing visions of Tina and her staff.

“I always focused on creating a place where people could come to feel comfortable and cared for. They know they are getting a professional service from someone who cares about them.”

Tina put her passion into La Mirage ever since opening it. Originating from a small village in Greece, she says that making the move “wasn’t easy. I had to learn a lot, and you have to love what you do.”

La Mirage has Tina’s heart in it, something that’s palpable to the community which has grown around the salon.

“We’ve embraced our community and become a large part of it.”

This salon and spa is involved and active within their community, having participated in and sponsored fashion shows, including a fashion fundraiser for the Bensalem Kiwanis Imagination Land playground for special needs in Hulmeville next to the library.

“We like to be present in our community and play an important role in it,” Jim says.

At La Mirage, community matters.

The salon/spa is hosting a number of specials in celebration of Valentine’s Day, going until March 22nd.

La Mirage Hair Salon & Spa is located at 2347 Hulmeville Road, Bensalem, PA 19020. Check the salon out on their website,, or call to make an appointment at 215-639-6111.
