THE BEI CAPELLI STORY
Bei Capelli was founded in 2001 by Nancy Cartonio and Melissa Vigue. Their goal was to create an upscale yet unpretentious salon environment that provides cutting edge education for talented stylists who love what they do. They have achieved this goal and created an atmosphere that is nurturing and inspiring for salon guests and employees. In the 12 short years since Bei Capelli first opened its doors, it has received accolades from clients and the community and is now recognized as one of Maine’s premier hair salons.
Continuing to underscore Bei Capelli’s commitment to excellence, the salon has been nominated by North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA) for the prestigious Global Salon Business Award. Bei Capelli has also been featured in Salon Today 200 Magazine for 4 consecutive years. In addition, Bei Capelli has generously given back to the community by donating their services to various local charities and through an
annual on-site fundraiser has raised to date close to $25,000. The dedication and hard work of the Bei Capelli team has benefited the National Kidney Foundation, the Juvenile Diabetes Research foundation, The Cancer Community Center of South Portland, Maine and The American Red Cross.
2011 marked the 10 year anniversary of Bei Capelli’s entrance into the southern Maine scene where beautiful hair is what it’s all about, and we continue to celebrate that feat with gratitude and passion for the business! These years have been an exciting period of growth that have led to a gorgeous new location (with ample free parking) and a professional staff that has grown to more than 28 stylists, and several support staff members. What has remained constant is the commitment of the Bei Capelli team – their passion continues to be the motivation that provides an amazing experience for each and every client.

BEI CAPELLI’S PHILOSOPHY
We strive to provide our clients with the best salon experience possible. Our team of talented stylists is dedicated to satisfying each of our clients. We believe that happy, inspired stylists are rewarded with loyal, satisfied customers. From the very beginning, our goal for the salon was to develop and maintain a nurturing, supportive environment that emphasizes positive attitude, professional development and teamwork. We believe we have met that goal and look forward to meeting you at the salon where we are certain you will have wonderful experience.
Since our inception, Bei Capelli has strongly believed in giving back to the community. We are involved in many charitable endeavors and take an active role in the community to make it a better place. Soon after opening our doors for business we established our annual Cut-A-Thon where 100% of the procedes gathered are then donated to a deserving organization. That year our first event in 2001 was to benefit The 9/11 Relief Fund. The Cutathon has become Bei Capelli’s signature charity event and what was once an annual event, is now something we do several times a year. Past recipients of the proceeds include The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, The National Kidney Foundation, The Cancer Community Center (located in the neighboring town of South Portland) and The American Red Cross on several occasions. We also provide free hair services to Locks of Love donors and participate in many local charity auctions by donating our products and services.
