Parched Hair? We Care.

Summer is a favorite for most people, especially us Michiganders who like to soak up as much of those golden rays as we can. Although, sunshine has its advantages is also has disadvantages. One of those disadvantages just happens to be drying out those pretty locks of hair you have. But as always, Capelli, as well as, Paul Mitchell has a solution! For centuries, Hawaiian natives have used the fragrant juice of the Awapuhi ginger plant to moisturize skin and hair. Research in New Zealand also shows that sheeps' wool derived from this location contains KeraTriplex proteins that restore hair. And since we all can't afford to move or vacation to Hawaii or New Zealand, Paul Mitchell was nice enough to share the wealth of this goodness with the rest of us :) This awesome combination of Awapuhi ginger and KeraTriplex proteins, creates Paul Mitchell's Awapuhi KeraTriplex, which is a conditioning treatment that restores and repairs disrupted bonds and hair cuticles,
 leaving your hair looking and feeling healthier. KeraTriplex treatments also protects color fading by 67%, prevents breakage up to 80% and adds shine up to 30%.

Right now Capelli is offering KeraTriplex Treatments for only $25 when added on to any other service. 

[Booking a KeraTriplex Treatment also helps our already amazing stylists be sent to VEGAS for Paul Mitchell Gathering in August]

  If your hair is starting to look and feel dried out from this harsh summer sun, do yourself a favor and make an appointment for a KeraTriplex Treatment, you won't be disappointed!

Its that time of year again when there is a grad party or wedding every weekend. And as you're walking out the looks great, that dress you're wearing looks phenomonal, and those heels are to die for, but then you realize your finger nails look like you have been mining copper in Chile for weeks. Well listen up ladies, Team Capelli has the solution to all of your chipped nail problems. Its an easy and pretty cheap fix too! Capelli offers a gel polish called Axxium, from OPI. You can wear this for up to  two weeks (if not more) and not have to worry about chips, bumps or scuffs. So come on in and book an axxium appointment and save yourself from last minute painting before parties!

Airbrush or Nothin'

I have always been a skeptic of airbrush makeup but since I have worked at Capelli I have learned the many advantages. I decided to put the facts to test and try airbrush for myself. I had Kyle apply airbrush makeup at 9 am on Friday. I decided to take pictures to document how airbrush makeup actually wears. So the results are in:

Before with no makeup on my face

9:00 am AFTER :)


3:00 pm (6 hours after)

9 pm (12 hours after)
This was after I ran through rain at Target.
Airbrush made it through! & had no streaking :)


Makeup done by: Kyle Ann

The Verdict:
Overall I loved airbrush makeup. It doesn't feel "cakey" like traditional makeup would especially with 24 hours of wear. I definitely recommend getting airbrush makeup if you have a wedding, prom, or any other event where you need to make your make up last its worth the investment. Capelli offers Airbrush Makeup for $55 so next time you have an event call us up! 248.841.1338

Facts About Airbrush:

What it is: A light-weight makeup applied through an air gun machine that produces a thin, even layer of makeup and creates a very matte finish. Finish can be thin or heavy depending on the application.
  • When airbrush is rubbed it won't transfer. (ex. when hugging someone traditional makeup will rub off on their shoulder, airbrush won't)
  • Airbrush will give you a porcelain doll-like finish.
  • It has an 18+ hour wear.
  • It is thin enough to make your skin feel that it can still breathe while being covered.
  • It will not fade, melt, or rub off on clothes.
  • It drys instantly with a matte finish and does not require any powder or re-applying.
  • It can easily be washed away with soap and water.
