Sarfati did not travel alone! She was accompanied by Lauren Streeter, Repêchage Corporate Educator who after visiting the campuses hopped over to Chicago’s WGN Midday News studio where she was featured in a segment “How to Cook Up Your Own DIY Spa Treatments in the Kitchen!” Lydia Sarfati, Repêchage CEO and Founder was invited to speak to future professionals at two Tricoci University of Beauty Culture campuses in the Chicago area. Sarfati presented an inspirational as well as technical demonstrations to the Harlem and Rockford campuses providing Tricoci students with the tools they will need to succeed after graduation. 

“The class that Lydia presented to the Tricoci University students was wonderful! The knowledge that she imparted to the students about not only Repêchage but also how to succeed in this business was invaluable!  The students left the class feeling inspired and motivated as well as with a renewed passion for the industry that they have chosen,” says Gabriela Santana-Blackburn, executive director of esthetics and teacher training at Tricoci University of Beauty Culture.

Sarfati took the students through her career, how she started out in the beauty business and how that career transformed into a professional world-wide skin care company. “The students already know why they are becoming estheticians, we are passionate by nature. What they need are the tools to succeed; skills, products that work and business know-how to launch their careers after gradation,” says Sarfati. She concluded her presentation with a demonstration of the Repêchage Four Layer Facial, the treatment that took Sarfati from respected esthetician to world renowned industry expert.
