Franco Calliva was born in Piana Di Albagnesi, Sicily and moved over to Cardiff when he was a teenager where he continued to cut hair. Franco opened Capello in 1994 as a unisex hairdressers, quickly becoming one of the best salons in Cardiff. After 21 years of successful business, Franco's son - Alessandro - took over and rebranded Capello to what it is know as today - Capello Barbers - one of the busiest and most talked about barbers in Cardiff.
We don’t rush your hair, we care. Your hair is as important to us as it is to you. It’s our work, It’s our art, It's our passion. It doesn’t matter who you are, how old you are, what your hair is like, what hair you would like. We welcome anyone & everyone at Capello, as a client & a friend. What separates Capello from the rest is the bespoke services we offer to all our clients. A haircut with us isn’t an ‘in-n-out’ job.. it is a relationship between the barber & client. Our bespoke services focus on head shape, face shape, lifestyle, careers, hair texture, hair density and the client’s own preferences . This ensures every service a client has is a personal service & is tailored to all their wants & needs.
Great haircut. Exactly what I asked for. Good attention to detail. Switched from Groom for men after too many dodgy haircuts there.
Studying in Cardiff and didn’t have a clue who to go with so checked out these guys because of the good reviews and they lived up to it. Went in with a mop came out looking fresh, won’t be going to any other shop.
Great atmosphere, Great coffee, Great music, Great haircut. Great!
