Class up coifs with today’s Groupon: for $32, you get a haircut (up to an $18 value) and full highlights (a $50 value) at Tricoci University (up to a $68 total value). This deal is valid at the Chicago Northeast and Chicago Northwest locations.

At Tricoci University, student-stylists enlist a variety of high-end Redken products to transform coifs under instructors' close supervision. Strand scholars carefully chisel surplus hair to meet patron specifications and amusement-park-ride height restrictions. Professional-grade-coloring solutions subtly elevate 'dos to high-style glamour as beautifiers weave a full heads' worth of highlights in between indigenous hues. The service lasts two hours, and the $5 appointment fee and the customary pop quiz on the history of scrunchies is waived for Groupon customers.

Tricoci University

On a trip to Chicago from his native Italy, young Mario Tricoci changed his life forever. The fledgling hairdresser stopped in at a prestigious salon, where he impressed the owner with his impeccable display of skill and landed himself a job. The next six decades brought strings of industry awards and the opening of his very own salon, which soon exploded into 26 locations in four states. With his styling prowess proven both to the industry and to the clients he encountered each day, the coiffeur decided to share his gift with others. In 2004, he established Tricoci University to foster a new generation of cosmetologists and spa technicians trained to thrive in the luxury-spa industry.

Throughout the Midwest, Tricoci protégés study a rigorous curriculum in high-end salon and spa surroundings to learn how to create beautiful hairdos, choose skin-flattering cosmetics, and beautify nails and skin. A team of experienced industry professionals readies pupils for the beauty world with in-depth classes, and outside education arrives via video demonstrations and guest-artist lectures on Vidal Sassoon's Wedge-Bob Postulate. More advanced students get a preview of their career to come by beautifying real people during instructor-supervised treatments, which lend the stylist essential experience as the client enjoys a pampering session at a discounted rate.


I enjoyed the collaboration between other students and the licensed teacher while they were cutting my hair.
