Skincare regimens evolve throughout a lifetime. They begin in adolescence, with the appearance of a first pimple, and carry into middle age with the appearance of a first wrinkle.
That's why Nu Skin Scene's skincare services span the entire spectrum of concerns. Its beautifiers customize their facials to target whatever nagging issue assails each client's skin. That might mean a mask or chemical peel tailored to fight acne or wrinkles, or one that simply evens out rough texture or blotchy tones. And they don't just tend to the face; staff members also wax hair from the body and perform treatments designed to leave skin soft from head to toe—just like sleeping in one huge lotion-filled glove.
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.
