With almost 35 years of combined salon and business expertise, ACADEMY DI CAPELLI has formed a prestigious facility with state-of the-art equipment, well-trained instructors and a salon-oriented curriculum that produces graduates ready to compete and excel in the world of Professional Cosmetology. We will also maintain a friendly, fair, and creative work environment, which respects diversity, ideas, and hard work.


The objectives of the Cosmetology course are to thoroughly train all cosmetology students in all phases of hairdressing including cutting, styling, permanent waving, hair straightening, tinting, manicuring, facials, makeup, health & public safety and State laws & requirements.

Senior students perform beauty services of all kinds, upon paying patrons. The "Clinic", while still a controlled educational environment, strives to reflect as realistically as possible, a modern salon environment. During this phase of the course, the student is guided in gaining experiences designed not only to develop and perfect the skills previously acquired, but to aid in the development of the speed, confidence, salesmanship, customer relations skills and professionalism, required for success in a professional salon environment.
