The salon atmosphere was great, very relaxing and beautiful space. However, I had an appointment with the owner and it swiftly turned into a nightmare. I displayed a picture of what I wanted and had been growing my hair out for the past eight months for. I left with something so far off from what I fancied (my hair is naturally ashy/cool and it was now copper/warm) that I was basically shocked. I called to have it re-done, and he admitted that he and fellow employees had laughed and compared me to "Shirley Temple", which really hurt my feelings. I came back in good spirits and made sure there was no misconception to what I wanted. I left, once again, with a mess of vibrant copper/orange hair. At this point, my hair has been way more damaged than I would have ever liked it to be, inches cut off that I blatantly asked not to, spent $190.00 for a terrible botched service, wasted eight months of hair growth, and am devastated. I called again, because I didn't know what can be done at this point, and was offered to come back to the same stylist. Not a refund, not even to a different stylist. No thanks, I'd rather stick my head in the toilet and call it a day.

Terrible, dishonest business. I was completely ripped off tonight. I have a groupon that is past the promotional date but clearly states that the amount paid can be used for "any goods and services offered by the merchant. They refused to honor it.

Roman and his staff were truly exceptional! As a new resident to Pittsburgh, I had to rely on searching the web for a new place to get my hair cut and colored. I found Capristo and read all the wonderful review online, so I figured they must be one of the best in the area. I have very difficult hair to color and although there was an issue with the first stylist I used, Roman (the owner) and his salon manager went out of their way to listen to what I felt could "make it right". When all was said and done, they managed to turn what could have been a negative first impression into a superb example of client service. I will be certainly be back and plan to refer my clients and friends there as well.

I always have a good experience at Capristo. Tom is professional and very talented when it comes to styling my hair. I would highly recommend Capristo Salon and ask for Tom.

Went here for hair and make-up for my wedding and just loved the staff. They were so very accommodating of both me and my bridesmaids and mother in law. In addition to being really talented, they're very friendly. I'm not great at hair and make-up stuff myself which is why I usually feel super intimidated by stylists and make-up artists. That was not the case with this salon. Everyone made me feel really comfortable. I'm planning on going back for a cut at some point.

To visit Capristo Salon is to visit simple indulgence. I was instantly attracted to the friendly and energetic atmosphere. How refreshing to walk into a place where it is so evident that people want to be there. My stylist, Jason Riley, is a pleasure to be around. His attention to detail and dedication to his clients is unfailing. I rely on him for both my color and cut. Not an easy feat, I must say, as I have long and unbelievably thick hair. He takes his time and gives a truly thoughtful consultation. When you make an appointment with him, you are his main focus. Visiting Capristo is what I imagine a perfect salon experience to be. Also - I must not forget to mention Brit, who shampooed my hair. She was wonderful! A true spa experience - such pampering!! Loved it.
