Larry has spent over 25 years in the beauty industry as a Cosmetologist, Esthetician, Massage Therapist, Educator and Spa Owner. 

Tricoci University of Beauty Culture believes success for students and associates results from its people-centered culture.  They are passionately committed to preparing students to become licensed professionals within the beauty industry.

Larry discussed all things about his journey in the beauty industry, the stigma’s families have with the industry, how Tricoci are trying to change the stigma, how the school is supporting students, how they are changing the importance of education and more. It is a full episode and there is no way you can miss it! 

“It’s not really always about the job skills, it’s really learning to focus on those people skills. No matter where you’re in, we’re involved in sales. And people don’t buy things, people buy people.”

“The one thing about the beauty business, I feel, like we’ve always been one of the more accepting industries all the way around. But I don’t think we’ve moved quick enough.”

“We just have to step outside our comfort zone sometimes. We have to be willing to be schooled. I feel like everytime I’m in a campus, I can be taught anything by any of the students and I love that.”
