Tricoci University of Beauty Culture Honored for School Culture, Technology, Community Involvement and Marketing Innovation in Modern Salon Media’s 2015 “EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION” Cosmetology School Recognition Program

MODERN SALON Media has named the 2015 class of “Excellence in Education” honorees in its sixth annual program recognizing leadership and best practices among cosmetology schools. Tricoci University of Beauty Culture of Oak Brook, Illinois, was chosen to represent excellence in the categories of School Culture, Technology, Community Involvement and Marketing Innovation. MODERN SALON Publisher Steve Reiss announced the honorees during the American Association of Cosmetology Schools (AACS) 2015 Convention in Phoenix, Arizona, on October 24th.

Honorees were determined based on key criteria in each category, and grouped according to school size or number of locations. Two top honorees were chosen in each category—one individual school location, and a multi-location school organization. Small schools, large schools, chain schools and single units of chain schools are all represented. Tricoci University of Beauty Culture was recognized as the top honoree for Marketing Innovation, multi-location.

“We received applications from cosmetology schools across the country and look forward to celebrating all the 2015 Excellence in Education honorees and sharing their stories.  It is truly a great time to pursue a beauty education and career, and the program at Tricoci University of Beauty Culture exemplifies that fact,” MODERN SALON Editorial Director Michele Musgrove says.

“We are extremely proud to have our staff’s and students’ hard work recognized in this manner,” says Tricoci University of Beauty Culture CEO Ross Bravo. “To be a leader in beauty education we focus a lot of our energy into building a strong school culture that complements our curriculum and technology solutions used in the classroom. We also encourage our students and staff to be an active member in the surrounding communities. All of that combined with building greater brand awareness in the markets we serve has allowed us to help more students realize their dreams this year.”

Sharing stories of innovation, inspiration and collaboration from a diverse group of leading schools is an important part of MODERN SALON’s “Excellence in Education” mission, Musgrove explains. “We want to help spread the word about the exceptional work cosmetology schools are doing to help launch beautiful careers. We hope the professional salon industry and their communities will join us in celebrating them.”
