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!
No more Boston for me! – After moving to W.Hartford from Boston a year ago, I had trouble finding any salon that could compare with my old one in Boston. Finally, my neighbor referred me to Suzanne at Capellini Salon! I have long (mid-back)highlighted wavy hair. Suzanne has cut and highlighted my hair twice now. My hair has NEVER looked better...healthy, beautiful movement, and gorgeous color! As far as customer service... perfection. I LOVE everyone there! Truly, an amazing experience in an amazing place with amazing results
Great Experience – Wonderful experience at Capellini. Everyone went out of their way to make you feel welcome and most importantly, I love my hair!
Great People but don't expect them to return a call quickly – Great people and make you feel a part of their family, but when you leave messages it takes days to return calls and on some occassions they are never returned. Also, you have to stress how you want you hair cut or Suzanne will cut shorter then you like.
FANTASTIC!!!!!!!! – I moved to West Hartford 3 years ago and naturally started my search for a new salon. I went through 4 salons until I saw someone in the supermarket with a fantastic haircut. Naturally, I stopped her and asked where she got her haircut. She of course referred me to Capellini's salon. I have to say that it is, hands down, the best salon I have been to. I searched and searched and found the one that I am sticking with. My hair is a bit difficult, which is why with each of my many moves, I always have a hard time finding truly excellent and skilled stylists. Trust me when I say if you book an appointment you will be thrilled!. All of the stylists there are, simply put, excellent. The bonus is that all the owners and all the staff there are very nice. You walk through the doors and you become one of the family. I highly recommend Capellini's. You will not be disappointed.
At Last...... – I am a pretty typical guy, fussy about the way I look but not prissy. I have paid as little as 12 dollars for a haircut locally and have paid as much as 100 dollars in New York. I have had all kinds of cuts, good and bad and whenever I have found a cutter that I like, the consistency seems to vary until I return to square one, and I have been blamed for this by some cutters, saying my hair is too baby fine, or the greys have a mind of their own, etc.
But looking on the web and talking to local people brought me to Capellini's. I was skeptical at first, reading many reviews talking about how friendly and competent the staff was and how folks were treated like family in a good way, but I remained skeptical and made an appointment with Claire. I was ready for the same excuses for a poor cut, but instead was treated with respect. The stylist asked me for input and LISTENED to what I had to say.I could go on for days about the cut and treatment I received, but I will just say that I received the best hairstyle of my life, and have repeated this experience with an even more excellent result ( I thought THAT was impossible!). I even opted for just a touch of color on the next visit and the result was natural and brought the perfect cut to an even better level. I have found a home at Capellini's. I look forward to seeing Claire and Reese (co-owner)as well as all the others who genuinely made me feel welcome, and who have made this stressful part of my life a pleasure to have done and look forward to. I truly feel fortunate to now be connected to such nice people who have such pride and skill in their work that their enthusiasm is contagious. I would recommend this salon to anyone that can appreciate a truly excellent hairstyle provided by friendly and skilled cutters. ...and a very nice ambiance without being snooty. (And you could get a coffee at Starbucks nearby or a nosh at the even closer cafe) HP - Farmington
Awesome Salon experience – I had such a great experience there. Everyone there was so nice. Love that they have cookies and drinks for clients. Rachel cut my hair and she did an awesome job. I love my cut and have gotten lots of compliments on it. I have really thick hair and she really took her time and cut it exactly how I wanted it!
The best hair salon in Connecticut – My girlfriend, Peg, is very fussy about her hair. We've been from one end of Connecticut to the other searching for the perfect Hair Salon and Capellini Salon delivers. I also get my haircut there and feel the same way
Can't wait for my next appointment! – I was looking for a salon and went on the internet to see what salons were in W. Hartford (I'm new to the area). Capellini got wonderful reviews so I decided to give them a call. From my first conversation with Reese - who seemed genuinely interested in responding to my needs - to an extraordinary welcome by everyone at the salon, I knew I was in good hands and felt as if I was a longtime client and friend. My first appointment was with Rachael for a cut and she was awesome! She was warm and engaging and listened. She found my hair challenges without any help from me and gave me a great cut. So much so, that I went back the next week for color. Again, I had two issues that bothered me and Rachael discussed my options and I walked out as happy as could be - new haircut, new color and a new salon and stylist to call home!
It was apparent that Reese, Rachael, Suzanne and Claire have tremendous pride in their business and want to create and give their clients a complete salon experience. From the minute you step through their front door you are welcomed as a friend. Even the clients who were waiting for services were nice!
P.S. Two days after the color I brought my 17 year old son in for Rachael to work her magic! She did...
