CAPRI Institute of Hair Design, was founded in 1961 by Helmut E. Muenster. Mr. Muenster was highly regarded and well known throughout the tri-state area as "the man with the golden scissors." He asserted a vision to reach far beyond the mainstream of the industry and planted a solid seed rooted out of his love of teaching.

Since the passing of Mr. Muenster in early 1983, CAPRI Institute has continued to flourish and demand the highest of standards under the assured direction and focus of owner Anne E. Muenster. Along with the energetic expertise of Institute Staff, Faculty and Instructors; together, they have made CAPRI the preferred choice in beauty education. This collective effort has propelled CAPRI's four campuses including Clifton, Kenilworth, Brick and Paramus into the permanent fixtures that they are today.

In combination with its resilient reputation, CAPRI Institute has consistently demonstrated and encouraged excellence for over 60 years, and with true commitment will adhere to these standards for continual growth with each coming day.
