I happened upon Anthony Capalino Salon, located in an office building (next to Planet Fitness, Assembly Sq.) by chance. I saw a woman with curly hair like mine in a supermarket, she had a nice haircut; I complemented her hair and asked her who cut her hair…. Anthony Capalino, in Somerville. I made an appointment to have my curls cut by Anthony. The salon's location was easy to find with a huge, free, parking lot. Anthony greeted me when I walked in. The salon has a very relaxed atmosphere, which I liked. Anthony was very attentive. He sat me in a chair and took a good look at my hair. He asked me what I wanted. Then he made some suggestions about the cut he thought I needed to get my curls into shape. It had been a while since I had a really good haircut. I also wanted to get partial highlights done, but Anthony doesn’t do highlights. I was wavering about whether to get the highlights because I have very dark brown hair and I’m afraid of getting harsh brash highlights. But I decided to go for it when Anthony offered to give me 20% off my service today as a first time customer. A young woman named Ashley did my highlights. Ashley was very personable and she did an awesome, awesome job on my highlights. The highlights she gave me, soft caramel shades, blended naturally with my dark brown curls. I was so pleased with my highlights. Then came my haircut. Anthony took his time cutting my hair. I could tell by the way he was cutting my hair that he takes pride in his profession. I cannot stop looking at my hair since leaving Anthony Capalino’s Salon this afternoon…Anthony and Ashley hit a home run my first time in. If you're looking for a great haircut and highlights Anthony Capalino's is the place.

Have been going to this salon since it opened. Marta has been my stylist since day one. Recently got color and cut and as usual it was terrific. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Also parking is easy and free!! Highly recommend Marta and the entire salon.
I went to the Anthony Capalino Salon to get my hair done for prom and it came out absolutely amazing! i got compliments from everyone there! Also got my eyebrows done and will only let Marta do them from now on.. i highly recommend taking the trip there!
I have been going to this salon since it opened a year or so ago. I swear by these stylist (Marta and Anthony) and am addicted to their talent just as one is addicted to their starbuck lattes ;) For color I usually go to Marta and for a haircut you can't get anywhere else, Anthony is my man! For those with curly hair, HE KNOWS WHAT HE'S DOING! I highly recommend Anthony Capalino Salon.

So I am a very skeptical person, simply because I have very very curly hair; and if it isn't done right then I'm the one who has to live with any mistakes in my hair for a very long time. With that, I had only gone to the same hair stylist for about five years, before going to Anthony. So when I to Anthony this past summer, I told him that I was very nervous to try someone and something new. He was Amazing! He told me everything he was going to do with my hair, step-by-step, before he cut it. Then as he was doing my hair he explained what he was doing. He took out the awkward mushroom look when I wear my hair curly, and when it's straight it looks fabulous! I'm going back next week to get bangs which I haven't had in about 10 years.
Marta doesn't get away though, she recently colored my hair better than I've EVER had it colored. I got my hair colored once and it looked like an ugly brass, it wasn't the look I was going for at all. Now, I'm absolutely in love with my hair, and I'm constantly getting compliments (thanks Marta). It looks great both curly and straight. I had gone in with an idea of a color that I wanted, but Marta using her genious made some great suggestions, and I'm glad I listened I know I would regret my choice.
I found a hidden treasure with this salon, they've improved my hairs health, they cater to their customers needs and wants, and they genuinely care that people look FABULOUS when they leave. I recommend them to everyone. They are simply the best!!

I needed an ""updo"" for a gala but I was concerned that I would look like I was going to prom rather than a gala. I had never had my hair worked on by Marta before but she came recommended. There is no other way to say it: Marta was extraordinary. Her ability to listen to what I thought and give me her ideas was very reassuring. I knew I could wash my hair and go ""natural"" if her work ended up not working for me but the result was unbelievable. While I was getting my makeup applied a local tv personality asked about my hair and people at the gala were very complimentary. Most importantly, I loved it. I would recommend Marta to anyone who is looking for someone to give their hair a little glam...or a lot!
