This is a guest post by Brianna Baker, a student at our Rockford campus.
My name is Brianna and I have been attending Tricoci University in Rockford since June of 2013. The reason I chose to come to Tricoci, was because I knew it was best hair school in my area, they have standards(that all students have to meet), and just the fact that I knew a couple people that went there – all of which had nothing but great things to say. The environment is awesome here, like one big family! And the instructors are wonderful. If you need help with anything, want to learn new ways to do a certain style or something, you can always ask or come to them for anything. I appreciate all of my instructors, each in their own way. They have taught me so much, from hair cutting to styling, and I will carry a lot of those steps and advice with me for the rest of my life.
Going to Tricoci was the best choice, and a real experience for me. If I could go back, I wouldn’t change a thing. I have met some great stylists in this industry, and also great techniques and hot tips that I use to this day. One of my best days at Tricoci was the first time I met Mario Tricoci himself. He was great. It was amazing to get a one on one with him, and his message was so inspiring and fulfilling and is something I will take with me for the rest of my life. I have so many great memories here at Tricoci from all the demo events, games, and competitions we have. It wasn’t just about learning, we had fun and learned all at once!
Being at Tricoci these last 11 months was an opportunity of a lifetime for me. I have met some of the most amazing people, formed some really great friendships, and have learned so much when it comes to hair and life situations. Coming to Tricoci, working on the clinic floor, being hands on with clients, and building great relationships with them has taught how to be professional at all times. Not to mention it made my love for beauty grow stronger than ever! It is passion doing hair, and making people look good and feel even better. I am so thankful for my Tricoci friends and family.
