Our Team

Isabel Caracappa
Hair Design
Isabel has been working in salons for more years than she wants to admit to – unless you are willing to believe that she started cutting hair professionally at 5 years old.  She did her initial training at the Capri Institute; completed advanced cutting programs at Jingles Academy and Paul Mitchell and regularly attends seminars to learn new techniques.

Isabel enjoys helping her clients achieve just the right hairstyle to enhance their appearance and outlook.  She loves the creative aspect of cutting hair – it’s her favorite part of her job!   She knows that a good cut is the foundation for a hairstyle that will continue to look great as it grows in.  Getting the color right is important too.  It’s all about finding what works with each client’s interests and style profile. 

Isabel loves her job and would be delighted to welcome you to her salon!

Maddie Maggiulli
Junior Stylist
Maddy is the newest member of the Bellissimo staff.  She found her ‘inner stylist’ in high school and started experimenting on her friends.  Their positive response inspired Maddy to seek professional training and make a career out of making people beautiful.  She continues to learn, both through outside training and working with Bellissimo’s more senior stylists.

Maddy’s favorite part of the job is knowing that she is making her clients look good and feel more confident.   She loves coming into the salon and working with Bellissimo’s clients.  She looks forward to helping you look your very best!
