What You'll Get
Faces, like potatoes, must be scrubbed and buffed to clear away excess dirt, remove dry skin, and prevent the emergence of extra eyes. Buff away unsightly blemishes with today’s Groupon to Tricoci University of Beauty Culture in Rockford or Peoria. Choose between the following options:
- For $42, you get five basic facials (an $85 value), which include the following:
- A Repechage facial mask
- Complimentary makeup application for lips and eyes
- For $60, you get five mani-pedis (a $120 value).<p>
Under the wise tutelage of licensed instructors, the students at Tricoci University of Beauty Culture work from a full menu of salon services that restore luster to skin and impart prismatic pizzazz to digits. Armed with an arsenal of Repechage products, student stylists revivify client mugs during basic facial treatments tailored to particular skin type. After using a combo of tiny rice-bran wax particles and lactic acid to exfoliate away dead skin cells and magic-marker prison tattoos, one of these practiced pupils treat oily and acne-prone epidermises to special kojic skin brightener designed to improve clarity, color, and visibility from space. Otherwise, clients with t-zone combination skin relish in a creamy white kaolin clay mask that absorbs excess oil, relieves redness, and balances the skin with st. john’s wort. Alternately, students will infuse dry, mature, or sensitive skin with a super antioxidant formula composed of fresh seaweed, olive-leaf extracts, and shea butter to cultivate a younger appearance and diminish the evidence of damage caused by exposure to sun, pollution, or flying-saucer tractor beams.
Or opt for the mani-pedi package in which hands wallow in a relaxing soak before students trim, buff, and polish nail beds during a 60-minute treatment. During the pedicure portion, feet recline as nail-artists-in-training banish callouses with hydrating sugar scrubs and strongly worded eviction notices before massaging limbs and topping toes with their client’s favorite color. Guests can also spring for Axxium no-chip polish and french finishes for an additional cost.
All services are provided by students under the supervision of licensed instructors.

About 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.
