Shai Amiel


Shai Amiel the self-proclaimed Curl Expert. of Capella Salon can turn frizz into fabulous.

Shai is the to go-to curly hair expert after he was handed a diffuser by the curly headed boss he was then assisting and told, “dry my curly hair.”

He listened… and he learn and he began a search for the special product, cut and color that would give curly hair the looks he wanted.

Years later, Lorraine Massey chose to train Shai Amiel as one of a very few select stylists around the country to master her famed DevaCut. Today Shai is sought after at Capella Salon, the salon he owns and runs with his wife, Nicole Amiel in Los Angeles.

Capella Salon has repeatedly been named the top salon in the city by the LA Times and Daily News and the testimonials say it all.

“Wrote one reviewer: “Shai really has a talent…without cutting much at all, he transformed my badly shaped frizz to lovely curls. Such a nice guy as well. I see why he gets rave reviews. I definitely recommend him.”

Said another: “Shai Amiel is a wizard when it comes to cutting curly hair! He has given me the best haircuts of my life. I’ve moved all over the place, and consequently been to many, many stylists over the years (with some pretty disastrous results) and I am so glad to be back in So-Cal and within driving distance, once again, of Capella Salon. Shai knows curly hair and clearly digs making it as beautiful as possible. His Deva cut is fantastic. I like that he listened and cut off very little hair (I keep it just past shoulders) but still bounced up the curl and created a new shape. Cannot recommend highly enough! Damn, my hair looks good. :)”
