Best of Boston

2008 Best Hair Salon, West


Three decades in the biz and not a whiff of mustiness about Salon Capri, where a phalanx of Penna family members (who also run a Hyde Park location) and their team of high-end stylists translate runway looks to suburban locks. One of 10 elite L’Oréal centers in the country, Capri scores extra points for its colorists, who’ll finish that face-framing cut with sexy highlights. That goes over big with the married-with-kids clients who flock here, figuring, Why put up with mommy hair when you can have who’s-your-mommy hair?
