Best Haircut I Ever Had

I just had my second haircut at Capellini's with Michelle. After the my first haircut with Michelle, I received non-stop compliments so I didn't think I could possibly have the same kind of reactions from people after the second haircut, but I did. The first came out fantastic. Not only did people compliment it right and left, but I actually had a parent at the school where it teach say that all the kids were talking about how great my haircut was and that she agreed! Then, Michelle gave me my second haircut, listening carefully to what I was interested in and giving me suggestions and ideas, which I loved and decided to go with. She was absolutely meticulous with her haircut. The proof came today when the first person aside from my family who saw it said, ""Wow what a great haircut! It makes you look 20 years younger!"" Not only did I get a great haircut both times, but the owners and people who worked there were so pleasant. It was really more like going to a gathering of friends and getting pampered than going to get a typical haircut.

Wonderful Salon!!

Capellini Salon is one of the rarest of salons where from the moment I walk into the salon I am greeted with genuine warmth and hospitality. There is a gentle yet enthusiastic atmosphere and my cuts and color
are consistently superb. I would recommend Capellini
Salon for anyone wanting a terrific cut in a relaxing,
spa-like setting. When I have had to reschedule appointment, I have never run into any difficulty. Wonderful to have a ""hairspa"" in the middle of West
Hartford Center!

I have been meaning to write t...

I have been meaning to write this review for quite some time now, as I have been a customer at the Capellini Salon for over a year now. I have been to salons all over the country and, coming from a person who has a very difficult time finding the perfect stylist, I can honestly say that Capellini is outstanding. This family of professionals made me feel at home and truly at ease. I am a middle-class girl on a tight budget and they treated me with the upmost respect and kindness. They are beyond classy and are NOT overpriced. They have services priced for everyone and are VERY fair. The best hair cuts I have ever gotten...and the nicest people with current knowledge and top-level training in the business. I always look forward to my next visit because I know it will be a great experience each and every time. I love this place and I am confindent you will, too. My advice--don't go anywhere else!

Don't Go!!!

Attitude and expensive to boot - how lucky can you get? So pleased that business is so good where they can kick a loyal customer to the curb because of a scheduling misunderstanding. Don't bother going here when there are So many other salons in West Hartford! You've been warned.

Bad Experience

I very rarely contribute a review on-line, but my experience with Capellini was bad enough to warrant one. If you do not mind going to a salon that breaks/changes appointments with little notice and a hairdresser who ignores your stated desires and does what she (Suzanne) wants, Capellini Salon may be for you.

Another perfect haircut at Capellini!

I've been to many upscale salons in my time, but none has matched Capellini for all around excellence. Suzanne is by far the most talented and intelligent stylist I've ever known. Because of her expertise and caring, my hair has never looked better. The location is great, the decor is lovely, the customer service sets the standard and everyone at Capellini is smart, funny, and kind.This is one great salon. We are so lucky to have it in our area.

Best place in the tri-state area!!

Not only do you get a great hair cut every time, but you're treated as one of the family. This is an example of what American small business owners should strive to be like. All of the people working there are great and they will go out of their way to ensure you have a great experience. I've lived in NH, MA, and CT and this place is by far the best salon I've ever had the pleasure of going to. I highly recommend this place if you're tired of those ""mass production"" hair cutterys where their only goal is to get you out of there as soon as possible to make way for the next victim. I never have to worry about my hair cut when going to Capellini...Just remember this, the one thing that everyone notices is your hair. Make it a good impression.

Capellini response to listentomoi

Listentomoi: First, please contact us non-anonymously so that we may issue you a refund. We are unhappy if you are unhappy. You are correct, our salon is upbeat and clean. Yes, we do make an effort to know the names of our guests. Yes, we do send thank you notes to our 1st time clients. And yes, until we run out, we give to our new customers the holiday gifts that we gave to our existing clients. You call it marketing. We call it our minimum customer service. We guarantee that all of our services (including customer service) is better than you have experienced in any other hair salon. We do this by employing only skilled and talented artists who love people as well as their art. Our haircuts range from fifty to one hundred dollars depending upon the stylist. Salons of our caliber do not and cannot charge $17.00 to $33.00 for a haircut. While no salon is for everyone, Capellini Salon is for discerning clients who know and expect the difference. Simply because you cannot see the difference does not mean that it is not there. Again, please come forward so that we may refund your money. Thank you.

true masters of marketing!

the marketing of this clean, up-beat salon is the best I've come across in my career!....the skills of marketing unforunately can't come close to the skills of hair styling, cutting, etc.
Reese will very successfully try to sell Suzanne as a expert sytlist better than New York or Boston, LA., etc..all stylists will learn your name so that you will feel wonderful when you walk in-they will shower you with compliments, beverages, cookies, and give little gifts of appreciation for their 3 times high fees as any other salon around (very high)-and then send you a note thanking you for your business-marketing at their best.
What about the actual haircut, color and other treatments? they are not any better than the local cost cutters at a fraction of Cappellini's price. If you need to be marketed and convinced how wonderful you are and how they are better than anyone else around then this is your place to foolishly spend your hard-earned money.

Great work and hospitality

I have been living in West Hartford for a few months and have tried several salons. My hair is short so I need a cut and color about every 4 weeks. A friend suggested Calellini Salon after I had some bad experiences and my hair looks fantastic. Reese welcomed me the minute I walked in, took my coat and offered me everything from hot chocolate to wine. When I sat down, Suzanne listened to my concerns and needs for almost 10 minutes before she gave me her input! She literally studied my hair and asked me questions concerning my past dye jobs. This was serious business! I had my hair dyed and highlighted and it took under two hours! I continued to be offered chocolate truffles in their very upscale and professional salon. I was overwhelmed by their genuine kindness and will be back in 4 weeks for a fabulous experience. Thanks Capellini Salon!
