Shelley is the BEST waxer!!! 2/28/2013

I have had the pleasure of visiting Shelly at Capristo for the last 3+ years for her expertise in waxing skills. I am a regular client for Brazilian bikini waxes. Shelly is the BEST in the biz! She makes you feel so comfortable and is the fastest! I even had her wax me when I was pregnant- all the way up until the day before I delivered my last baby! She always goes above and beyond. She doesn't miss a hair, either! I will be a loyal client to Capristo as long a Shelly works there! There has never been a time when I left there without being wowed at the results! Thanks Shelly (and Capristo!)!! OH and I should mention that I live 30 minutes away from the salon, but it is most definitely worth the trip because she is THAT fabulous! :) more

Kim is the best hair stylist I've ever been to 4/19/2010

I recently went to the Capristo Salon and was thrilled with the cut, color and highlighting I received from Kim. I read reviews about her and thought I would make an appointment to see if she could help me with my hair. She asks what you would like and together we came up with an idea and I cannot thank her enough for my new look. I have never had a cut like the one Kim gave me, but very importantly to note is that I can actuallly style it like she did it. This is a first for me. I am sure alot of people leave a salon looking good but once they shampoo, they cannot style it. She is a perfectionist and takes pride in her work and I cannot recommend her more. She will be my hair stylist for life!! My daughter will soon be seeing her! Go to Kim and you will not be dissapointed! I have fine, thin hair and the way she cut and styled my hair- you would never know it! Thanks Kim ~you are truly talented ! Diana C. more

Lydia is a hidden treasure!! 2/17/2010

I recently moved to Pitt for graduate school and found Capristo online. I have gone to Lydia for facials and waxing and think she is brillian! She is very professional !!! By far the best Brazilian I've ever had!!!! She is fast and makes the whole experience almost painless. After getting my first facial i saw quick and positive results!!! I've had 3 since and feel like i'm a different person with amazing skin. Lydia is also very good with suggestions and ideas about taking care of acne and damaged skin with organics. more

  • The Scene
    Capristo is at the corner of Ellsworth and College Avenues, right next to Eons (an antique clothier you have to check out when you're finished spa-ing). It's bright and airy where it needs to be, and soft and secluded where it has to be.

    Mind And Body
    The hairstyling parlor is bustling and animated, like any good neighborhood beauty shop, but just a door away is a trickling indoor fountain that leads to private massage rooms, where the lighting is low and the atmosphere is quiet and relaxing.

    Prime Pampering
    This salon offers hair care, skin care and specialty treatments, "nail esthetics," body treatments and waxing. Prices are comparable to other nice, full service spas. A one-hour massage is $65; a shampoo and a style begins at $21. A basic manicure will set you back $16. Specialty treatments and services are more.
