This place is gorgeous! They opened recently but did a bang up job fixing up the place. First class! I went around 5pm on a Thursday and parking wasn't too bad. That's the only negative I found, if you consider that a negative - limited parking. I walked in with extra-long scraggily hair. I had serious split ends going on. Between school and work I hadn't had a haircut in over 2 years. I was nervous to lose length but I also knew it would just get worse if I didn't get all the split ends off now (some split almost halfway up the shaft)! Hector Cruz confirmed this for me and made me feel comfortable with it. He did a FANTASTIC job. My hair went from long, thick, wavy, frizzy and split to medium-long and totally healthy. He used a PH balancer which did wonders. Is this an upscale place? Totally. But you get what you pay for and honestly, I thought it was a great value (that's coming from a girl who has gone to SuperCuts all her life). Everyone was super friendly and I felt really comfortable, which was surprising because I usually feel out of place in upscale places. Bonus: Hector works with cancer patients! That was really awesome to me. I want to grow out my hair to donate to Pantene Beautiful Lengths now! If you want to support a great cause like that this is totally the place to go. I know this probably sounded like an advertisement (I swear it's not - I'm a teacher, haha) but I will definitely be going here from now on (and more often than once every 2 years)!
say enough good things about this place! In the past year i got caught up in the "i need to dye my hair all the time!" Craze. I never had the money to get my hair professionally done because its so thick and long, so i did it myself. Recently i bleached my hair from purple to straight up bleach blonde. After a few months i grew tired of it and decided to go back to dark red. I box dyed it and... It came out atrocious. Had no idea what was wrong. My mother recommended Capture salon to me. I was soooo embarrassed to go outside. First let me say, i thought i walked into some kind of dream land upon entering! This place is gorgeous. They were very busy, but were extremely nice despite the hectic time i walked in. i didnt have to wait long and i explained my story to them. I think they almost cried when they saw my hair. I had nearly destroyed it, and they had a lot of work to do! Hector was my saviour however! It took the rest of the day to repair the damage i jad done, lots of filling and coloring and awesome banter between myself and the staff, a much needed cut, but Hector completely transformed my damaged hair into something manageable and gorgeous. Not only did i walk out of the salon feeling fablous, i felt i was a part of a family who really cared about me. I would recommend this salon to everyone for anything they need! they do an amazing job with their services as well as making you feel right at home!
Losing my hair created enormous angst until I walked into Capture Salon and met Hector Cruz. Hector is an upbeat and empathetic stylist who cared and shared. Alex, the creator of Capture, provides a comfortable and private room for consultations. During my first visit with Hector we (including a friend) talked about options and suggestions; the second (also with a friend) was to try on the pieces that Hector had ordered; and, my third visit (by that time I was so comfortable with Hector, no friend required) was to have my head shaved and my new hair and styled while on me. All these visits were complimentary. Having the opportunity to meet several other women at Yale who Hector and Capture helped, my experience is not singular-we all had a comforting and uplifting experience. I hesitate to say I enjoyed the visits but it is true, I went through the process feeling cared for and special and most especially beautiful.
