In January 2016, both the Urbana and Danville campuses of Concept College of Cosmetology merged with Tricoci University of Beauty Culture to continue building on its longstanding legacy. The Urbana beauty school is located on US 150/45 at 202 E. University Avenue in Urbana, IL in between N. Broadway Avenue and N. Cunningham Avenue. The Urbana campus currently offers our renowned programs in cosmetology and esthetics.

Concept College of Cosmetology graduated hundreds of successful students that have gone on to have prosperous careers in the beauty industry in positions such as stylists, platform artists, educators, salon managers, salon owners, and more. Tricoci University of Beauty Culture is poised to offer the same kind of success to its students.

This newer facility located in the Gateway Shoppes includes a large clinic/ salon area, theory room, dispensary, lounges, manicure and pedicure stations, and classrooms.

Interested in taking a tour of our Urbana beauty school? You can either apply online or call us to schedule an appointment at 888.395.1013.
