Capello was created by Franco Calliva in 1994 as a unisex salon. After 20 years of busy trading, Franco’s Son took over the business and created what it is today – Capello Barbers. Alessandro has created a unique barbering brand that still holds his Father’s legacy very strongly. These family-run, independent & eclectic barbershops are a blend of the modern & traditional, serving up some of the best haircuts in the world.

It is important that you realize that coming to Capello isn’t just a haircut.  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 or what your hair looks like – we welcome anyone & everyone at Capello, not only as a customer but as a friend first. Come and experience some good vibes at our Penarth, Pontcanna or Whitchurch Road locations,  and grab yourself a great cut whilst you’re at it!
