You’re heading out for a night on the town this weekend but your hair is already feeling and looking like the aftereffects of Hurricane Nemo. What to do? Time to head to the newest location offered by SalonCapri, which has recently opened on Newbury Street. Book an appointment with Nick Penna, Jr., master stylist and owner of SalonCapri. Working his magic, Penna will straighten, color and smooth those tired tresses into a beautifully soft and manageable look.
The third and smallest location Penna has opened (the other two are in Newton Highlands and Dedham at Legacy Place) has some of the best frontage in the city, sitting prominently at the beginning of Newbury Street in the former Avanti Salon location. The completely renovated second floor space is filled with lots of light and has been outfitted with reclaimed wood while funky photos line the walls. Clients will be invited to sit in a comfy stylist chair where Penna will begin discussing what cut and color is best suited to the individual.
Penna mixes natural looking colors onsite at the exclusive L’Oreal Professionnel Haircolor Center. SalonCapri is one of only three L’Oreal professional training centers in the country, along with Fred Segal Beauty in Santa Monica, California and L’Oreal’s headquarters in New York’s SoHo neighborhood. While Penna is an expert colorist, it is his hair styling technique that truly shines. He patiently brushes, rolls and straightens hair, miraculously turning frizzy hair into a beautiful silky blowout that lasts for days.
Aside from hair styling, SalonCapri also offers professional makeup application, facials, manicures, pedicures, waxing, and beauty product consultation. Penna and his wife, Amy, along with the salon's talented stylists and beauty professionals have earned the company nine "Best of Boston" seals, receiving their first in 1998.
