A team of cosmetology students and instructors from Tricoci University of Beauty Culture (TUBC) are set to style the hair and makeup of some of the world’s most talented salsa dancers at the upcoming Chicago International Salsa Congress (February 12th-15th 2015 at Westin O’Hare Hotel).

It’s the first time TUBC has supported this world-leading Afro-Latin music and dance convention, with teams from TUBC’s Chicago Northeast (Rogers Park), Chicago Northwest (Norwood Park) and Glendale Heights campuses set to beautify performers.

TUBC will also have its own booth there to provide mini-manicures and other beauty services to attendees, as well information for anyone interested in exploring a beauty career.

The 14th consecutive annual Chicago International Salsa Congress celebrates the rich cultural legacy of Latin and Afro-Caribbean music and dance, featuring breathtaking performances by the world’s best Latin dancers, fantastic live Latin bands and practical workshops.

Jill Marcodes, Executive Director of Cosmetology Education of Tricoci University of Beauty Culture, says: “We’re so excited be involved in this fun, creative international dance event, helping to make-over some of the most talented salsa dancers in the world! Our students love using their cosmetology skills at fast-paced industry events. It’s this type of experience that ensures they are career-ready once they graduate.”
