Last week, I had the honor and the privilege to hear and meet Mr. Mario Tricocci. For those of you who don’t know, Mr. Tricocci is the world-renowned hairstylist who hails from Italy. He is also the founder of the university I attend for nail school.
He came on an impromptu visit (which I hear he does a lot) to talk to all the students there. He encouraged us to be more than stylists or manicurists — we should strive to be the best ANYTHING! He wants us to graduate knowing we can do whatever we put our minds to and that we are disciplined. He also took us on a trip through his career and explained what he did to become the legend he is today.
Mr. Tricocci is uber-humble and very nice. He even took a picture with me!
