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.
Spherical lights hang from the salon's ceiling like glowing snow globes, casting honey light on cherry-red walls and a copper floor speckled with stars. Amid these jazzy accents, skilled stylists manipulate strands with sleek scissor cuts and bold color highlights. Guests can also request a specialty wax, ideal for removing hair from eyebrows, upper lips, and beloved bald caps.
The rays of the sun. The flicker of candlelight. The soft glow of fireflies on a summer evening. Humans are attracted to natural radiance, even in the metaphorical sense. While faces may not actually have the power to emit light, it's no surprise that phrases like "he was beaming" and "she lit up when she saw him" often find their way into the English language. The aestheticians at Medical Arts Unlimited's Advanced Skin Care Medical Spa understand the desire to keep the fires of youth burning bright. Ranging from facials and chemical peels to microdermabrasion and Botox injections, their results-oriented clinical treatments take years off of features while simultaneously delaying further signs of aging. In addition to their traditional treatments, aestheticians also equip beautifying technologies, including IPL and DioLite lasers, to keep skin healthy with the aid of the safest science. They also extend their handiwork's effects with a full range of products designed for the everyday maintenance of at-home use.
