Best of Boston

1999 Best Hair Salon, Neighborhood

Salon Capri

Owners Gina and Nicholas Penna and their son and daughter invest their Hyde Park salon with the warmth of a neighborhood bodega, but don’t be fooled by the absence of attitude, pretense, and gouging prices. The quality here is both sophisticated and several cuts above what you get at many Newbury Street salons. Indeed, the editors of Allure magazine agree, ranking the Pennas among the top hair stylists in the country.
