Hello!

let us fill you in on who we are..

 
Nikki Sanderson, OWNER   Nikki Started her journey with Capelli in 2015 when she started as an assistant after hair school. Since then, she has grown to become the Creative director, and then owner in 2020.  nikki loves traveling and french culture (wine, macarons and french hair.. hello?!). she has never met a treat she didn’t like. a topic she could talk forever about and not get bored? anything science or outer space related!  “the thing i love the most about this industry is your ability to be whatever you want to be, there are no limits. it’s all up to you. you can be rich or poor, successful or not. it’s all about your attitude. thats the biggest driver behind my motivation. i also love making people feel beautiful. you really never know how much of an impact you make in peoples lives.  i love coloring and cutting hair behind the chair (as i like to do the whole look) but my true passion lies in editorial styling. being a part of Fashion week is high on my list of things i will accomplish. i love educating as well. as i have stepped into the role of owner, i realize how much i love growing people and helping them achieve their goals”

adam spicer, senior STYLIST   adam.. our main man at the salon. adam is everyone’s best friend and such a positive energy to be around. thats probably the main reason hes such a great educator. he is an identical twin (double the awesomeness) and a proud uncle to a pug. he loves watching videos about all things hair and could talk about it all day.  “The whole process of coloring someone’s hair - the formulation, placement, toning, and blowdrying to see the final result - is something i love doing every time. switching up placements and techniques is what keeps me interested and always learning.  in the future, i will be taking more international training and hopefully working with a brand as an educator. i love teaching and sharing the knowledge of what i know with others.”  adam is also amazing with men’s cutting.

Georgette mangila, intermediate STYLIST   with over 3 years experience in the industry, georgette is one of the newest members of our team but boy, are we sure lucky to have found her. she has fit in from the first moment and her sarcastic personality clicks with our team well. if she were given $5000 tomorrow, she’d be on the first flight to paris to live out her lifelong dream. guilty pleasure? reality tv. not guilty Pleasure? cooking. oh and bubble tea.  “i love blondes and making clients lighter. but at the end of the day, making people feel and look their best is what brings me the most joy. the smile you see on client’s faces after they see their hair.. there’s nothing better than that.  a goal is to work with CELEBRITIES one day, perhaps at fashion week backstage.”

brooke stamnes, junior stylist   she’s the girl we’re all jealous of because shes like, really good at sports. brooke is the only one of our stylists who has a university degree. she attended school in north carolina for four years while on a volleyball SCHOLARSHIP, earning a degree in fashion merchandising and design. however, she always knew she was going to attend hair school as that was her lifelong dream. she has never seen a scary movie before as she gets spooked easily, so we like to creep up on her and watch her jump across the room (athlete, like we said)  in another life, brooke’s career would have been in the police force, like her dad. but as a self-admitted “wimp” we are probably better off she stuck to hair.  “behind the chair, my passion is lightening services. all the different dimensions, tones and contrast you can achieve really helps to make everyones look different. this industry constantly makes you learn and evolve. there is endless education at your fingertips and you meet so many other stylists along the way, i love it!  i would love to be an educator for Balmain hair couture. i travelled to paris in 2019 for education there and it made me fall in love with the line. working backstage at their runway show is high on my to-do list”

amy thompson, new talent stylist   hailing from la ronge, sk, amy is one of our new talent stylists. out of the entire capelli family, amy is definitely the most bold. shes got a style all her own, and the talent to match it. you can see her personality come through in her style and ability in hair and makeup. she loves playing around with everyday/special effects makeup, so shes our go-to girl when we ran out of time to do our makeup and couldn’t fit that other cup of coffee in.  “out of every color to do behind the chair, I love when it’s a super high contrast and dramatic. I love a bright balayage with a deep base.  the absolute best part about being a stylist is when the guest sees their hair. it’s such a rewarding feeling making people feel amazing. this industry is full of so many CREATIVe forms of expression that you’re always bound to find your niche!
