Students at the Tricoci University of Beauty Culture are giving back to veterans, educators, and those on the frontlines of the pandemic.

It's all through a new two-tier program called Tricoci Loves Community (TLC), according to Director of Education, Training and Development Lauren Boeke.

"What better opportunity to give back to those who have given so much to us," Boeke said.

The TLC program allows frontline workers like nurses, police officers, and educators to get a 10% discount on their haircuts.

They're also offering free haircuts Monday through Friday to veterans with a valid ID.

"We are right in front of a hospital and we've seen them go in and out and work these long hours," Boeke said. "We want to give them a space for where they can be pampered and enjoy themselves."

The Tricoci University has countless locations across the Midwest, including three in Central Illinois.

"We have Peoria, Normal, and Urbana campuses," Boeke said.

The program also serves another purpose: allowing student stylists to prepare for their careers.

"Our students get that real-life experience to work with them and learn about them," Boeke said.

Their hair and facial services give those who have provided so much to their communities a chance to feel taken care of.

Boeke said their program will run until the end of May.
