Tricoci University of Beauty Culture in Rockford recently donated a 50-gallon bin of discarded hair to Matter of Trust, an organization using hair to help clean up the recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. This is Tricoci’s first time donating hair, according to Laura Pierce. “When we tried to donate the first time, Matter of Trust had too much hair and not enough volunteers,” Pierce said. “As a company, we’re big on giving back; and this industry is about making people’s days, so giving back comes naturally to us.”
