We always enjoy reading our Yelp reviews. Whether they offer helpful criticism or praise our Men’s stylists, we appreciate feedback in any shape or form and are continually impressed by the creativity of some of our clients! We thought we would share three favorites:
5 Star review for Capelli’s from Chris L (Thanks for making us laugh Chris!):
“Careful, guys, they’re onto us.
Look, it was bad enough when a series of high-level leaks let the concept of metrosexuals enter the mainstream press. And when you started to see man-purses leave the traditional back channels and appear in catalogs and storefront windows? Gods, cleaning up after that was a nightmare.
Well, this new bunch in the 4th & Madison building is at it now. They’ve figured out that guys secretly want to be pampered and catered to, that we delight in hot towels and scalp massages and…ok, this is need to know only, so keep it under wraps…manicures.
I mean, they are brazen. As soon as you walk in, an amiable stylist offers you a drink and whisks you off into a chair for a chat on coiffure strategy. They don’t even ask for the secret hand signs: they’ll get it right for anyone, from guys who know exactly what they want done to someone who walks in with a huge mass of hair saying “Um….short….er?” Then it’s a relaxing scalp massage barely disguised amongst a regular shampoo, a well-executed haircut, delightful conversation, the works. Shameless! And at the end, a hot towel straight razor shave for your neckline right there in the open.
So look, men, we have a serious problem. I don’t know how much longer we can keep this all a secret with places like Capelli’s open to the public. My advice is get down there and check them out and report back. I don’t have the reconnaissance info for their other locations, but the floor plan I have suggests that you can infiltrate the 4th & Madison building location through their underground parking garage. When you get there, ask for stylist Jess – she’ll know what to do.”
Andrew E’s 5 star review is just as entertaining and a close second:
“This place just oozes manliness. It makes you want to drink whiskey, brand cattle, shave with a straight blade, and take on Chuck Norris in the Thunderdome.
This is a new location, open just a couple of weeks, and extraordinarily convenient to guys downtown. I’d never tried the other location, but reviews (http://www.yelp.com/biz/…) seemed very positive. The employees are salaried and thus aren’t turning over chairs as quickly as possible, so she spent an exceptional amount of time and detail on my unruly head.
And can I say that head massages are the greatest use of a lunch break ever?
And that’s why my haircut is better than yours.”
One last great review we would like to share is Matt C’s 5 star post:
“Ever since moving to Seattle, I’ve had a hair crisis. Before moving out here, I had the same guy cutting my hair for about 3 or so years. It’s one of those things that once you find a person who can cut my hair, I stick with them. I don’t do anything difficult or fancy with it, but if someone cuts it wrong, it looks like I have horns sticking out of the back of my head.
This is my third haircut since moving (I moved this last February, so no, I’m not super shaggy) and my third stylist. I gave this cut the “next morning” test. You know what I mean. Your hair looks great the day you get out of the salon, but next morning after your shower, you look like your dog after you shaved it down on a dare from your college buddies.
I am ecstatic to report that I’m just as happy today with my cut as I was yesterday! Martina did an amazing job, and I’ll definitely be back!
By the way, they use a straight razor to shave the back of your neck, which is an AWESOME way to trim up. Martina is a pro at it, and she told me they offer clean-up service between cuts. Definitely worth checking out!”
