Best Stylist for Curly hair!! 1/31/2012

Ever since reading Lorraine Masseys book ""Curly Girl The Handbook"" I have taken a whole new approach on how to care for my curls. I began to understand why my haircuts from every salon I ever have been to turned out so bad for my curls (I would always end up straightening my hair until my hair grew out to wear it curly again). When me and my girlfriends from Alaska started planning a trip to Los Angeles, California, I began to wonder if any of Lorraine Massey's deva cut special salons were in the area. So I googled it, and lo and behold Capella Salon popped up with plenty of amazing reviews. I knew this was going to be a one time cut for me (Alaska's not exactly close), so I wanted the best stylist I could get to cut my hair. After a little research I found that Shai Amiel, the owner of Capella Salon, was the most qualified and had the best reviews to cut the curls! Me and my girlfriends were sooo blown away by the customer service provided by Shai and his personal assistant Annie. They went way above and beyond! We all work in Alaska as full time volunteers that go in to the Native villages and do camps and conferences and speak all over Alaska (www.tgmalaska), and Shai was very supportive and charitable to our cause! Plus! I am learning Hebrew, and he is Jewish and we were able to speak back and forth to each other! Double bonus for me! My curls felt soooo soft and voluminous! Healthier than ever before! They deep conditioned my hair, and took the time to tell me what they were using in my hair, and how I could recreate the look easily. If I lived closer, Capella Salon and Shai Amiel would definitely be seeing this curly girl again! more

Welcoming Environment! 7/28/2011

From the reception desk to the stylists, everyone there is professional and friendly. You won't find anyone with attitude here, just great, smart people who know what they're doing. more

found a great hairdresser 7/23/2011

Maddison at capella is great with color,cut & style. I was so lucky to find her, and she is also fun to be around when you get your hair done. I highly reccomend her, it is difficult to find someone who is great with color and bleach, I get compliments on my hair all the time. The salon is comfortable and friendly. more

LOVE my new look! 7/6/2011

Talk about scared! Here I am newly re-located to LA with no clue about what more

SHAI IS THE BEST!!!!!!! 7/4/2011


Thanks to Keyonna 1/27/2011

Keyonna never lets me down, I always walk out with a smile on my face. When she cut my hair, it was at exactly the length I had requested and she listens. Such a sweet person and you don't spend half the day waiting to see her because she does not overbook. more

Great salon... FABULOUS sytlist... THANKS Kristen!!! 1/26/2011

Hey girls! I hate to have to admit this but my hair was just blah… you know what I mean?! I really needed a change… I was just so over my color!!! I needed something new, something glamorous, something to turn the guys heads lol… So I did what any self-respecting girl would do… I bought all the celebrity magazines and took a look at what’s HOT! I fell in love with this carmely brownish color with the most beautiful blondish highlights… I knew this was my new look! Now I just had to find somebody to help me! I asked my friend who always has fabulous hair who’s her stylist and she told me about Kristen at Capella Salon. So I called Kristen and told her about my hair emergency and she was sooooo great! She really listened and understood what I was talking about and we scheduled an appointment for my transformation. I was kinda nervous when I first sat in her chair ‘cause I’ve never done anything major with my hair like this before, but Kristen was so sweet and wonderful I felt right at home! She looked at the pictures I brought in, explained what she would have to do and then got started. Time went by so fast and a few hours later when I looked into the mirror I couldn’t believe how gorgeous my hair looked! My girlfriends all love my new look and I’m sooooo happy I couldn’t wait to hit the clubs and celebrate! Kristen is just the best and if you wanna do something great for your hair you gotta go see her! more

Best highlights 12/17/2010

I always had a problem finding a hair stylist who could give me highlights without looking like a zebra. Zsofi @ Capella gave me the best highlights EVER! Looks very natural, no stripes. She puts a lot of effort in it, she is the master of what she does. She is a wonderful and talented europen stylist! And she is super sweet!!! more

There's a reason this salon gets nominated over and over 11/2/2010

I came to Shai Amiel and his Capella Salon in a professional capacity in August of 2007. I was assigned that year the review of a shortlist of hair stylists who were supposed to be excellent with all types of curly hair, from wavy to kinky. In my research, I discovered the Deva Cut (which is done dry and in the hair's natural state), and Shai was supposedly the best in Los Angeles to do it. Not expecting much, I got everything I wanted. Since then, I've stayed with this salon and experimented with highlighting specifically for curly/wavy hair where in specific strands are colored to highlight the movement of curl. Amazing. The haircuts using this technique are so good, I often walk out without needing styling (though when I do, it too is great--they also SHOW you how to style curly hair, which many do not). And though I am a curly girl, Shai and his staff can do any hair type, and Shai is a master at color, taking a friend of mine from blonde to China-Doll black--and you'd never know. The salon itself is lovely. Right off Ventura Blvd. with parking in back, you walk into wooden floors and a lot of light and space. They have products not easily found in LA in their retail area (Deva, Moroccan Oil, Davines, etc.). I also believe they have WiFi. Though it is my job to test various beauty services in LA, I have forgone making money in testing haircuts because I do not want anyone messing up what Shai has done. You must experience this salon, and the Deva Cut by Shai if you're a curly girl, at least once. more

Thanks Keyonna for my new look 10/3/2010

I was referred to Keyonna by my friend. She has been going to her for years and I always love the way her hair flows. I have long hair that had no style to it. I brought in a picture of what I wanted. Keyonna listened to what I wanted and did exactly that. I was so happy with my new look, she made me look like a new person. Keyonna definitely knows color and how to style. Thanks Keyonna for my sassy new look! more

Spectacular Kristen 5/11/2010

Kristen has transformed my hair from something I hated to such high style that I would use HER WORK if accepting an OSCAR! She is THAT GOOD. Kristen works wonders with my frizzy fly away hair, turning it into a work of art. She has also found the PERFECT colour(s). Through cut and colour Kristen transforms my entire look time after time. I am so hooked!! She is not afraid to suggest the newest or best suited style BUT will ALWAYS HONOR her clients request!! I cannot recommend her highly enough. There is something so special about Kristen, that makes her work as good for your 'head' as for your hair. It is that personal touch that money can't buy. She is sooooooo gifted and studies the latest trends. I really have never experienced a hairdresser like her before. My life growing up would have had a MUCH better tune, with her creative and positive attitude and work. But back in the day of Brooklyn and New York Salons, I was told my hair was problem hair. NOT FOR KRISTEN!! Thank you KRISTEN!! KEEP CREATING BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE!! AND KEEP BEING YOUR BEAUTIFUL SELF!!! *** Pros: Caring, Totally Able to work WONDERS with all hair types!! Cons: Not being able to go every day!! more

Keyonna Tillman Let me down =( 5/10/2010

I wish I could of experienced all these other wonderful reviews from Keyonna Tillman, but after my experience with her I was left in tears! I went to the salon to get my hair cut, I have curly hair and was explaining to her how I would like my hair cut, and how it could be difficult. It seemed like she was annoyed, that I was telling her how to do her job, but I wasn't. As she was cutting my hair I was telling her not to take off too much, but she didn't listen to me, she just kept cutting and cutting! I was mortified! my hair was cut uneven. I just looked in the mirror and was speechless. I went home sobbing my eyes out!!!!!! My family hated my hair cut, as so did I. Thankfully I met a wonder stylist by the name of Jody at another salon who fixed it as much as she could, which I am so thankful. Bottom line I will never go back to Keyonna Tillman and just hope in the future she listens to her clients because we go to ""you"" to feel more beautiful not ugly or look like a mess. Pros: When i got it fixed at another salon Cons: She didn't listen to my needs! and I left crying more

I Never Liked My Haircuts Before Amanda 11/1/2009

I was never satisfied with my haircuts in the past. I always felt that something was missing. I would look okay but never impressed with how my hair came out.\r \r That all changed when Amanda Litt started cutting my hair. As a guy who had my haircut by my local barber for years I had no idea what I was missing out on. Amanda listened to what I wanted and then she managed to surpass my expectations.\r \r I have been going to her for about a year now and she always manages to make me look good. If you are tired with the same old look you've had for years go see Amanda and let her make you look great. Pros: Great Haircuts more

Fabulous Salon, Rosie is the best with color and cut! 8/30/2009

Rosie is fantastic, she's great with haircuts and always willing to try new things with you, and she's honest! If you want your hair one way, if she thinks it won't look good she tells you. She also does great color, and she's funny and easy! Pros: Great Vibe, easy parking more

A cool location with top-notch stylists 6/26/2009

My stylist, Kristen Arnhoelter, is amazing ! She is so abundantly talented. As a runway and print model for many years, I have worked with some very high profile stylists from around the country, and Kristen's skills are definitely on par with the best of them. \r But beyond her impressive skills as a stylist - what makes Kristen exceptional is her fresh, unique approach to making people look and feel better. She listens to you, gets a sense of you inside & out, and then creates a look that brings out your true beauty. She somehow has the ability to highlight beautiful parts of you - that maybe you didn't even recognize before - and allow them to shine through. \r Kristen is a rare stylist, and simply a wonderful person to know. \r \r Pros: Classy, professional environment Cons: No cons that stand out more

Great for curly girls who want to be ""straight"" girls! 6/23/2009

Having lived the life of a ""curly girl"" vs. a ""straight girl"", most curly girls can tell the straight life is easier and most versatile. I've had my hair professionally straightened for several years and have been satisfied\r with the results but have noticed that it does break rather (thanks to extremely deliciate and baby fine hair) and growing it out long has been an arduous process. \r \r When Kristin Arnhoelter informed me of an exciting new product, Kerasmooth Antifrizz I was a tad hesitant\r because I didn't want to chance it as I was really okay with the current treatment. So, in discussing this new process with her she told me that it was like the Brazillian blowout, except its totally safe because its formaldehyde (and aldahyde) free!\r \r Having been a client of Kristin's for 7+ years, and trusting that she would never steer me wrong I decided to try it. \r \r And I'm so glad I did.\r \r It takes less effort to dry my hair and within a week I noticed that the breakage was far less. With less effort comes faster blo-drying so I don't have to stress out about needing an hour to get ready! It is extremely soft\r and still has bounce so I decide to curl it, it looks extremely bouncy and shiny. I have rec'd compliments on how wonderful it looks and am very very\r pleased with the results. \r \r I would totally recommend this treatment and while it is a ""tad"" more expensive, I would strongly suggest using this brand to convert your frizzy, curly hair to a sleeker, straighter look. When I was fine with it before I\r am completely satisfied now! I would, however, want to remind you that when you get the treatment you can't wash your hair for three days - so just\r be sure to account for this.\r \r Pros: Amazing outcome! Cons: Can't wash hair for 3 days after the treatment! more

FINALLY found someone who will listen to me!! 1/31/2009

I just got home from my 2nd time going to Rosie at Capella Salon and I had to write a review before I got too busy because I finally had a wonderful experience at a salon in the Valley!! I actually found Rosie from reading reviews here on Citysearch about 3 months ago. I had tried several salons in the Valley and always felt like the stylists didn't listen to what I said and just did whatever the hell they wanted to and I would leave there feeling like I was wearing a wig! I have never written a review here, but always read other peoples, and usually don't believe them...but I REALLY wanted to share how wonderful my experience was today! I just felt ugly and bla...Rosie did my hilites and an AWESOME haircut that makes me feel pretty again! I don't know what else to say, but in the hour and a half I was there today we laughed and gabbed so much, I didn't even realize what she was doing, but when she handed me the mirror in the end and spun me around...I wanted to cry...I looked soooo great and just felt better! I finally found my ""girl""...and I just wanted to spread the word!!! Pros: parking, products, skill, beautiful salon. more
