Mario Tricoci, the salon and spa icon, announced that the Tricoci family acquired The Mario Tricoci Hair Salon and Day Spa business from their former partners and investors. Having sold a majority interest 17 years ago, the family has once again assumed full control of the eponymous company.
Originally from Italy, Mario and his wife Cheryl launched the first of their famed salons and spas in the 1970s. The company grew into one of the largest and most well-respected salon and spa businesses in the United States, which today employs more than 1,300 industry professionals throughout the Chicagoland area.
Mario stated, “First and foremost I am a stylist and have more to share with this magnificent industry – an industry that has given me so much. We have fabulous plans for cutting-edge innovation and new and improved services and products and look forward to sharing plans with our team and guests very soon. Our renowned and oft celebrated team remains. This is a very exciting time for our company. It’s a family business once again!”
“Cosmetologists Chicago applauds Mario’s continued passion for the hairdressing and beauty business as well as his long tenure as an active CC member,” said Paul Dykstra, CEO, Cosmetologists Chicago.
