Al's Styling Salon

Over 60 years of service!

Our Story

Al's Styling Salon was established in Belen, N.M. in 1958, by Al Padilla.

After a couple of years in business, Al's wife, Dolores, went to beauty school and came to work with Al to help build the family business. Dolores worked 15 years with Al. At this point, the salon employed 12 hairstylists. In 1980, Maria-Alicia Cordova, Al's daughter, started working side-by-side her father. After 17 years, Maria- Alicia became the owner of Al's.

During all of this time, the salon has only had moved once. We've seen hair trends come and go. In the beginning, hair was set in rollers and a comb out lasting a full week. Women would have a weekly standing appointment.

Today, styles are focused on your lifestyle, so you can maintain your style with ease. Maintenance is on monthly schedules, with cuts, colors, and highlights. We provide whatever is needed to keep you comfortable with your style.

Al's has 4 stylists in house: Joylene, Vivian, Renee, and Maria-Alicia. The salon keeps up with all the new styles and products by attending hair shows and classes. We are committed to keeping a high professional quality, and welcoming environment. The salon is grateful for our clients and our wonderful community and all the support they've given us over the years.

Al retired in June 2020 after 62 years, leaving his business to his daughter, Maria-Alicia.

Al's most recently participated in the Believe in Belen program in 2020. The salon gave out over 20 free haircuts to the community.
