Tricoci University of Beauty Culture Announces Expansion

Tricoci University of Beauty Culture (“Tricoci University”) is pleased to welcome three new campus locations to its growing family of schools. The addition of these campuses allows Tricoci University to serve new markets while leaning into the long-standing legacies of the schools it merged with; The Hair Arts Academy of Bloomington, Ind., and Concept College of Cosmetology of Danville and Urbana, Ill.. 

“We are very excited about merging with these schools. We have as much to learn from them as they do from us,” says Ross Bravo, Tricoci University of Beauty Culture CEO. “Together, we’ll be able to continue to raise the bar of what a beauty education should be.”

The Bloomington campus in Indiana will continue to offer programs in Cosmetology and Esthetics to students seeking training for a career in the beauty industry. It will also continue to provide affordable beauty services to the Indiana University students and the surrounding communities that it has been faithfully serving for the past 32 years.
