Capristo Salon and Wellness Spa is more than just a beauty haven—it's a family legacy. The late founder, Bruce Capristo, started styling hair at the age of 19. He owned and operated many successful salons in the Pittsburgh area beginning in the 1960s, including his flagship site—Capristo International—where he worked alongside his wife, Cheech. Bruce established a strong reputation while working in fashion, film, and television; he even styled hair on the set of the 1968 cult classic Night of the Living Dead. The location that Bruce opened on Ellsworth Avenue has now been going strong for more than 25 years. When Bruce passed away in 2006, his son Roman—a master stylist who trained with the likes of Vidal Sassoon and Bumble and Bumble—took over the business, continuing his father's dream. Although she no longer works as an esthetician and stylist, you can still catch Cheech helping out behind the scenes. The laid-back atmosphere at the salon and spa keeps both clients and employees happy; in fact, some of the stylists have been with the company since the very beginning. The crew hands out complimentary martinis on Wednesday evenings, pampering guests with custom facials and body wraps. For brides, they offer a private spa-party room filled with plush chairs and sheer drapery with complimentary champagne and hors d'oeuvres. Parking: First 4 Spaces on the left hand side of the Soba parking lot across the street. Plenty of meter parking on Ellsworth Avenue. Gift Cards: It's what every woman wants. Whether it's a make-over, massage or any of our other pampering services, you can be sure that the woman you love will love a Capristo gift card. Martini Wednesdays: Come visit us after work every Wednesday from 6:00 to 9:00 PM and enjoy complimentary martinis while you get pampered with one of our many salon or spa services.
