Get to Know Us
Beauty school is an investment and it’s important to be excited about the school you chose. That’s why a tour is such a big step in the process! During a tour you can get a feel for the school culture, what student life is like, and meet some members of our team.
A tour is the time to find out if we are a good fit!
To make the most of your visit to our school, come prepared with questions of things that are important to you!
How long will the program take for me to complete?
Do you offer flexible scheduling?
Will your school help me find a job when I graduate?
Another great way to get to know the school is to ask to sit in during class. At Capri, we always welcome prospective students to observe a class to get to know us a little better.

At Capri Cosmetology Learning Centers in New York, we take pride in the success of all our graduates! Many of our alumni have gone on to have incredible careers as business owners, stylists, and estheticians. Check out what a few of them have to say about their experiences as beauty school students and about their careers now.
Surprisingly, Vasken started his career journey as an archeologist. He ended up purchasing a salon, now Vasken Salon, when he decided it was time for a change in his professional life. That purchase led him to enrolling at Capri Cosmetology Learning Centers to learn about hair. He realized that this was something he loved and after graduation he went on to become a Master Colorist. Not only is Vasken’s salon incredibly successful now, but he is still very involved with Capri at both our campuses in Newburgh and Nanuet. He is a guest speaker, lends his experience, and often looks to Capri graduates when he is hiring.
Brittney Weiss Owner and Lead Stylist of BWBridal
Brittney has been a stylist for more than 10 years. Her path into the beauty world wasn’t clear from the beginning. First, she pursued a traditional college path at nursing school before deciding that she wanted to turn a career out of her passion for hair. Brittney found the most value in her education at Capri from stylists and extracurricular learning opportunities that were made available to her. Her experience from learning hands on at school helped her realize her true passion was updos and led her to becoming a bridal stylist. She continues her education all the time to stay up on the trends and stay current.
Samantha is a 2017 graduate of our esthetics program. She really valued the culture of Capri where students and teachers cheer each other on. Everyone really helped her succeed at school, even when the curriculum was challenging. Samantha felt the biggest benefit of her experience was taking advantage of working in the student spa. Being able to practice her skill and technique on real clients (while supervised by licensed pros) helped Samantha develop the talent that led her to open her own business.

Kristen is currently running Amity Beauty with a fellow Capri Grad!
Claudia is a 2012 graduate of our cosmetology program. She decided to pursue a beauty career when she realized traditional college wasn’t for her. While at Capri, Claudia knew she wanted to own her own business and valued learning all about the foundations of business and beauty. After Capri she went on to start her own studio in Poughkeepsie, NY named The Great Studio. Since school, Claudia has also been recognized on some of the top national magazines and social media pages, such as Behind The Chair, Modern Salon and American Salon. She was also a finalist in the Behind the Chair One Shot Awards in 2017 and 2018. Today, Claudia continues to travel, network and build her brand.
