Your in-class work combined with hands-on experience plus our “Progression of Learning Method” and ONLINE TUTORIALS, uniquely enables our students to graduate as Cosmetologists with the confidence and knowledge needed to succeed in the Beauty Industry.  We say Beauty Industry because it is so much more than just being a salon stylist. Here is just a sampling of positions that are available to Cosmetologists or Estheticians:

-Competition Stylist

-Platform Artist

-Freelance Stylist

-Color Specialist

-Salon Owner

-Product Demonstrator

You’ll educate your customers how to look their best and improve their confidence.

   It’s not just about doing hair.  Capri prepares students to be in an environment professionally. They know how to carry themselves.  They have initiative, which is something you can’t teach people.  I’ve hired a number of Capri graduates, and have been very happy with them”

“Employment of cosmetologists is projected to grow 13% from 2012 to 2022, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Most job openings will result from the need to replace workers who leave the occupation.”
