Capri Beauty College is one of the first Cosmetology Schools in Illinois and we are proud of our 2nd generation legacy as a privately owned and operated family business. In 1960, our first campus opened in Chicago and since that year, we've graduated many notable alumni and consistently report excellent outcome rates such as our most recent 95% State Board Passing Rate! We've built our curriculum to provide hands-on, salon level training and encourage each student to reach their creative potential.
We hope to see you on campus soon!
