Bergen CSS are “Pampered” at CAPRI Institute of Cosmetology

Once a month, Easter Seals women visit CAPRI Institute & Cosmetology Training Center in Clifton, NJ.

Miss Lulu and Miss Marge greet us with such warmth and a genuine welcome. Before our arrival, Miss Lulu prepares for our time with the school. She walks around the school looking for volunteers to perform manicures, make-up or hair-dos for our very excited guests. One student, Edith, always volunteers to help set up the towels, bowls, scrubs, lotions, milk baths and polishes.

Once there, our Easter Seals ladies are treated to a manicure. They are seated with their own personal manicurist; a sanitizer is first applied to their hands and wrists. Old nail polish is removed, nails are shaped and filed: cuticle detailing is a must.

A honey scrub is applied to the hands to remove dead skin which is washed away in a warm almond milk bath. Green tea lotion is massaged on arms and finger tips. The manicurist then finishes by polishing nails with the color of their guest’s choice.

The consumer then choose an array of colors, with red glitter being one’s favorite while others request nail art  or lined tips. In another room, some of the ladies have their hair washed and styled. Some want curls, while others have their curls straightened. Some of the ladies get make-up applied and eyes, cheeks and lips are dressed in flattering colors. All the ladies have a new look for the day!

We leave CAPRI feeling pampered, lovely and special. It is always a wonderful experience and we always remember to make cards to thank CAPRI for such a wonderful day. As Miss Lulu says, “Everyone loves to feel beautiful!”
