Our History


After operating a successful salon in Villa Park, Mario and Cheryl Tricoci break new ground by opening the first Hair Salon in a major Shopping Center – Woodfield Mall in 1977.  More radical for the time, Mario sets an industry trend focusing solely on Cutting and Blow-Drying hair at his salon.  Mario Tricoci was the first to move away from traditional roller sets that were salon standard at the time.


Incredible success in Woodfield prompted adding nail and makeup services and expanding to new locations in Oak Brook and Arlington Heights. In 1986, the Arlington Heights location becomes the first day spa in the United States.


Soon after launching the spas, Mario develops his own line of hair care products, Mario Tricoci Hair Care, and expands to private branded skincare and COSE™ custom blend cosmetics, all of which can be purchased at all Mario Tricoci Hair Salon & Day Spa locations.


With a trophy case full of national and international awards garnered over the years, Mario is honored with the inaugural, exclusive and highly coveted International Legends Award from the National Cosmetology Association in 2006.  Only two others among the hairdressing elite have been so honored: Vidal Sassoon and Aveda Founder Horst Rechelbacher.
