This was absolutely my best salon experience ever! When I first called to make an appt. I was impressed with the professionalism of the salon. I was not disappointed when I arrived, I was warmly greeted, offered my choice of beverage, cookies,etc. I then met my stylist who listened to my wants (yes actually listened) and then offered her suggestions.
The color: Spot on and I am fussy! The cut: The best I have had! The salon is immaculate and everyone is so warm!! I am very, very, impressed and look forward to my return visits! Finally, I have found my perfect salon!

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,

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.

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

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.\r
Reese will very successfully try to sell Suzanne

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

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.

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.

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

Pros: Expert stylists, family-like atmosphere, COOKIES!

Cons: none...price is reasonable for level of service and skill

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!

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...

Capellini salon is an outstanding experience. The quality of the cut and highlights is outstanding. My hair definitely looks and feels much better since I switched to this salon. Suzanne has a true talent and spends the time to make each cut a great experience and a great look. Everyone in the salon is incredibly friendly and relaxed. The salon is small, quiet and relaxing so a great place to spend to be. Also, Suzanne devotes her full attention to one client at a time so my appointments last for two hours versus the four hours or more that I was spending at other salons. I feel I get the best look and service that I have experienced at any salon..period! Highly recommend it!

This place is amazing. Being new to the area I've searched for 2 years trying to find a place to get a great man's haircut. Capellini's results are unmatched. Not only do you get a great haircut but everyone is so nice and pleasant you become part of the family. You don't feel like "just another customer" and you are definitely never rushed out of the place. So many salons are volume-houses that try to get you out as fast a possible and skimp on the results to do so. Not Capellini.

If you're looking for a run of the mill, cheap, "get me out quick" type of salon and don't care about having a great haircut then I wouldn't recommend this place. But if you're looking for a great experience with a great haircut in a friendly environment with fantastic employees then stop searching and make an appointment today.

Pros: Results, Hospitality, Atmosphere, Convenient Hours

Cons: Prices (but you get what you pay for)

My overall experience at Capellini Salon has been incredibly positive mainly because I was ??blown away? by Suzanne??s expertise and artistry (not to mention Reese??s hospitality and engaging conversations)! Suzanne is not a hairstylist but a true hair connoisseur in the sense that she takes careful consideration of her client??s hair texture, bone structure, lifestyle and profession. Suzanne is the first person who actually understood what I have been trying to achieve ?a stylish but not trendy look, an easy to care for hairstyle that required minimal maintenance, a cut that would ??grow in nicely,? and color that looks natural. I have been a client for over a year now and I happily look forward to my visits with Suzanne, Reese and their friendly staff. If you are looking for a caring, professional salon that believes in top-caliber service with no attitude, then Capellini Salon is the place for you!

Suzanne is an extremely talented hair stylist. She is a true artist with cut and color. My cuts fall into place with minimal effort on my part to style. Even when the cut starts growing out, it has a look that I have not achieved with other stylists and I find that I can go a little longer between cuts because my hair still looks great. Reese is always accommodating with scheduling appointments and is a great partner to Suzanne. Together, their focus is making your time in their salon the most comfortable experience possible. I feel like a valued customer and would highly recommend them. I have been going to Capellini Salon for four years and feel like part of their family. I look forward to my visits to Capellini Salon every time!

Suzanne and Reese, and now Claire, are all awesome. Reese and Suzanne are dear friends. Suzanne has expertly cut and colored my hair for, wait for this, almost thirty years. Since I don't live in CT any longer, I carry a picture of Suzanne's haircut around on my iPhone in the futile attempt to get others to cut my hair the same way. It never happens, so I travel from Vermont and even Tuscon, AZ to have a Capellini experience. Need I say more?

Claire is amazing, she and the rest of the Capellinis crew are all so kind, welcoming, outgooing, and a joy to be around. I have been to SO many different salons, tried so many different people, and out of everyone- every salon ( even after living in West Hollywood for yrs) - Capellinis is by far my favorite and continuously does a phenomal job on my hair with both the color and cut. Im so glad, after 10 yrs Ive finally found the best salon. I will never go anywhere else, thats for sure! Claire, Reese, Suzanne- You guys are incredible! <3 . xoxox

Claire is a really wonderful stylist. I have very coarse, curly, thick, long hair...that's tough to deal with! Claire not only gave me exactly what I asked for, but made my hair look better than I thought it could. She is so nice and very skilled. I recommend this salon to anyone who wants a great cut or color. I wanted natural looking highlights and I'm so happy with the result. She also managed to keep the length of my hair intact while trimming all the split ends I had and making my hair so much healthier.

Wonderful salon!!!!!

I have lived in CT for about 9 years now and have been looking for a salon since. I have tried over 20 places and generally give up on a place after my second visit and go back to the store bought dye because I am paying so much and not getting good results. I have visited Capellini twice now and the first thing I notice is the atmosphere....it feels like a home away from home. My hair actually turns out like what I asked for as well. When I ask for a complete change from blonde to red, I got the red that I wanted, not just in the ballpark like so many other salons. I highly recommend this salon to anyone who wants to have great haircolor and a great cut, as well as feel like you are part of a family and feel completely comfortable during the whole experiance.

Suzanne and Reese treat each customer like a personal friend. Suzanne is an incredible haircutter-she pays attention to your individual hair situation--in my case 3 cowlicks are very relevant. She listens carefully. She told me how to accomplish what I wanted while respecting the limitations my cowlicks presented. I could not have been more pleased with the result. Follow up visits she asks specifically how the cut worked and if there was anything specific I wanted to report. Plus I truly like it that when I am there, I have Suzanne's undivided attention. There is only one other stylist and you don't sit side by side at all. Your experience at Capellini's is your own and no one else's. And there are some very neat little shops in their location so you can make a day of it!

Since I moved here four years ago, I have been searching for someone who would cut my hair according to what I wanted and yet keep my hair style up-to-date. I have even tried high-end salons in Boston, but was never quite satisfied. I searched online and read some of the reviews on this site that recommended Suzanne at Capellini Salon. I am so glad I did because she really is gifted. She takes the time to listen and understands how to make my hair look great. I have never gotten so many compliments on my hair before. Reese and Suzanne are two of the nicest people I have met and it is an absolute pleasure to visit with them.

When i get my hair done at capellini i leave feeling so beautiful. Aside from being a very profesional yet relaxing atmosphere i really feel like i get exactly the hair cut and color i want. Suzanne listens to what i want and if i don't know what i want she alwas comes up with something wonderful for me. From the excellent conversation to Reese's gourmet coffee and hot chocolate i have fun when i go and am always impressed when i leave.

I am a college student at the University of Hartford and have been searching for 4 years for a good hair stylist in CT. I cant believe in my last year I finally found the perfect salon for me! Over the phone I told Reese how picky I am about my hair and he told me " picky clients are our favorite kind of client!" When I met Suzanne she was so nice and so comforting, not to mention did a perfect job on my highlights and haircut! Even when I graduate I will absolutely come back to Capellini Salon for all my beauty needs. I love Suzanne and Reese!!!!!!
-P.S. Lisa is so cute too!

Cons: NONE!

I have been a client of Suzanne's since 1995 and have never been disappointed with any procedure. She cares about me and also that I always look my best. One always feels welcome and at home in the salon, starting when Reese checks me in. They know my love of hot chocolate and have new kinds for me to taste!!

Pros: The skill and talent are tops.

Cons: have to pay to park in the lot, but it's never more than a few dollars.

After moving from NYC I tried about 10 salons in the Hartford area and this was my last stop before going back to the city! Suzanne was the only stylist who understood how to do highlights that had a complementary tone and coudl grow out between appointments natuarally, without giving a skunk line. I feel so fortunate to have found Suzanne and love getting my hair done again!! I highly recommend to everyone!

I waited four weeks for an appointment to have Suzanne cut my hair and have never been so disappointed upon leaving a salon. My once thick and wavy hair is now so short and sparse that I look as if I have been seriously ill and that it is growing back after losing it for some very terrible reason. During the session, I tried to tell her to stop cutting, but she insisted that we had agreed to this style. So apparently we did not communicate well during the consultation.

I went to Capellini Salon soley based on the reviews here at Citysearch because I was desperate for someone who knows HOW TO CUT HAIR. May not seem like rocket science to many, but trust me, it takes a talented artist to know how to cut hair well. And Suzanne is just that. She took a mess of a head of hair that I had cut by another hairstylist and turned it into a masterpiece. I love my hair now, it's so easy to take care of, and that's the secret to a good haircut. You shouldn't need a lot of product and manipulation to make it look good, which is what I've been doing until Suzanne came into my life., I love Suzanne and Reese is the sweetest person on the planet. It's such a nice salon. They offer a variety of drinks and delicious treats upon arrival and terrific conversation. Suzanne really knows her craft and what looks good on YOU. She really made me look phenomenal. I couldn't be happier. I will not go to another stylist again. Thank you Reese and Suzanne.

This place was the best salon experience I have ever had. Suzanne and Reese Are fabulous ! I called for and appointment and they were very accommodating, gave me instructions on where they were located and where to park. Upon arrival Reese offered me a beverage of choice and cookies to. Very friendly and great personality. The actual salon was beautiful, Suzanne greeted me and consulted with me on my hair and what I wanted, she then gave me her expert and HONEST opinion explained what she would do. She then showed me to a changing room where I changed into a robe so that hair wouldnt get onto my clothes. I got a great wash, great conversation, FABULOUS hair cut and style, the best I have ever had. I will be recommending this place to everyone I know. I love it here.

Pros: Fabulous cut and service

I LOVE my hair! The cut, the color - all done with ME in mind - not a cookie-cutter style from a magazine...but a cut and color designed just for ME. No gimmicks - just genuine talent. A lovely space, easily accessed in the heart of West Hartford. This salon is for the truly discriminating client. Suzanne knows her stuff and Reese is warm and welcoming. I felt I was in the best of hands from the moment I spoke with Reese on the phone. SUPERB!!! After years of searching, I have finally found the salon for me!

Cons: Would love to see you guys with a website! (not really a con)

I just came back from Salon Capellini and I couldn't be happier!! Everything I have read was TRUE! I received an amazing cut and a beautiful color. The personal service I received was amazing. I have never felt so special. The cut and color I received not only made me feel better about myself, but was totally dedicated to me, just me. It was all about my lifestyle and just how much work I was willing to do on my hair. Suzanne, thank you for your artistry. Reese, thank you for being an amazing cheerleader! See you both soon.

I am so in love with Suzanne and Reese. On my second visit I gave each of them a hug goodbye. They are amazing people who really just "get" what superior service means. I'm their's forever.

I work for a Hartford insurance company. A couple of months ago, I went to NYC for a meeting. There, I met a woman who lived in the City. I asked her where she had her hair done and couldn't believe it when she told me Capellini
in West Hartford, Ct!!! I couldn't wait until I got home so I called Capellini from NYC. (I had to wait a while for an appt).
My experience??? The haircut was the best I have ever had. It is so easy to manage! The hi-lites are perfectly natural looking. I am getting compliments all the time!!!
The atmosphere and customer service is exceptional!

Words cannot describe what an amazing and masterful artist Suzanne is! After visiting many stylists in the Hartford area, for more than 25 years, I can honestly say - Suzanne is The Best! I have very difficult, curly hair, and had nearly given up on my search for a manageable and flattering hairstyle. You will be thrilled with the results of your visit! Suzanne and her husband, Reese, have a well-deserved reputation for excellence and, beyond that, are very friendly and enjoyable to be with.

My hair is straight and fine. Every stylist I've tried in this area and NY ends up cutting my hair very short and boring. Last week I tried Capellini Salon for the first time. The experience was fantastic! Suzanne and Reese were wonderful. I left with the best hairstyle I've had in years and a great new color! This salon is worth every penny and I'm their's forever.

I came to Capellini very unhappy with the highlights I had gotten elsewhere and they did the most amazing corrective color! I get complimented everywhere i go! My highlights look the best they have ever looked and I am so happy with my cut! The best customer service and comfortable atmosphere. Worth every dollar, I wouldn't go anywhere else!!

I have never gotten so many complements on my hair before! I looked 100% better after my first cut at Cappellini. The whole experience was great. Even better, it is so easy to style and even looks good in the morning. I would never go anywhere else.

I have followed this skillful hairstylist from other locations. She's the best. After a fresh
"style" women smile and wave; it must be the hairstyle!! ( I know it's not me)

I highly would recommend her to anyone, especially those considering an up date to their current style; she's great with making it all come together.

I was recently visiting friends in W. Hartford Ctr. and had the best salon experience ever! My friends made my appt. for me at Capellini Salon. I never liked my hair (very curly) until now! Now I know what a great cut can really do! One friend has been going to Capellini for a few years and her haircut and color always looks awesome!
I plan on visiting more often now!
