Friend came in for a massage a couple days before his wedding to loosen his back. A day later he can not even stand and he gets married tomorrow. Seriously? Will never come here, will never tell anyone to come here, will never recommend. Thanks for nothing.

My grandfather has been going to Capri in Dubuque for years to get his hair cut. Every time he comes home after a trim he shares how pleasant the girls are and fun to talk to. Also, his haircut always turns out nice and is exactly what he wants. Thank you, Capri students for being so kind.

I recently had my hair and make up done for a wedding, and couldn't of been happier! The students were knowledgeable and friendly, plus they listened to what I wanted. I got airbrushed and wish I had done it before for special events! I can't wait to see the pictures! I'd recommend Capri to anyone looking to get stylized and beautified before any special event, big or small! Plus, it's a very affordable splurge! Thanks Capri!
