The college maintains an Illinois State License and is accredited by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences.

Capri also has monthly specials, online coupons and beauty parties for children and adults. Capri Beauty College is active in the community and supports organizations including Breast Cancer Research Foundation, St. Baldrick's, Toys for Tots and The Crisis Center of South Suburbia.

Pedicures offer many benefits. Not only do Pedicures help keep feet looking pretty, they also keep nails trimmed, calluses controlled and skin moisturized. In addition, a foot massage helps to relieve tension and stimulate circulation. Treat yourself to a Capri pedicure available in our student salon and spa for the cheep and cheerful price of only $15.00!

Just wanted to say thank you! We took our children there for hair cuts today and our youngest had a very hard time. The staff and students were awesome and professional through the whole process! Thank you so much for understanding and the clear culture of patience and acceptance you foster! Russell E., Client.
