You have made the right choice, my friends!

Although the “stuff in the books” has to be mastered, it’s so much better to be in a place that actually cares how you progress each day, week and month. The Salon Professional Academy-Grand Junction is dedicated to your success, your livelihood and beyond. You will find yourself in a great place everyday participating with energy. You will be encouraged to learn from your outcomes and share your experiences with others so they may learn from you, as well.

As a dedicated industry professional for over 30 years I am still going strong as ever! I could not imagine myself doing anything else and I am grateful every day for the ability to change a person’s look AND outlook. The huge reward we get from all of this is that we make people feel better about themselves! How cool is that?

The type of education you are about to be exposed to has made me who I am today.

Setting a foundation is the key to any successful building, as well as any career. I was fortunate many years ago to attend a Redken School, which has set me on a path I could not even dream of. Now, 25 years later, I have been fortunate enough to travel globally and represent Redken as a National Performing Artist. In those years, I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly! I’ve seen how important education is to the success of an individual, and TSPA offers that essential foundation.

Most beauty schools prepare you only for the state boards, which is important. But TSPA  prepares you for a career in Hairdressing. They have the immediate knowledge of how to set their students up for success. With a hands on approach to education, they really know how to work with a student individually and give them the What, Why and How of each technique and skill needed to become successful. Their reputation in the industry also allows them connections to training, educators and  trend information, which creates salon ready professionals. I have had the fortune to work with some of their students and have seen firsthand the quality salon professionals that have passed through their Academy. Few other schools in the country are able to get such results with their students. But beyond all of that, they are able to do it all with integrity. All one has to do is tour their state of the art Academy and they will see the difference.

The Hairdressing industry is one of the most rewarding careers possible. I’ve found that whichever facet you choose to pursue, TSPA will provide the bedrock to a lasting career.

Welcome to a journey of adventure and excitement! I personally got in the business to make other feel the best that they can about themselves. To be able to still deliver a service with a personal touch is amazing these days! The difference we can make in someone’s lives with the talents we possess gives me goose bumps!

I knew I wanted to continue further and faster in my career, so I chose redken education as the means to do so! Being a redken artist, I am honored to work with a company that cares so much about people and our industry. Year after year redken allows the salon professional to grow and advance. We want students to become better stylists, change the industry, and to succeed in whatever path they may choose.

I would have jumped at the chance to attend The Salon Professional Academy. Here you will receive training that will give you personal growth as well as professional growth.  It is learner based education that is supported by the principles of design, color and finishing. This can help students by, taking the guess work out of the outcome, you can make logical choices with the feeling of empowerment!

Follow your dreams, stay focused, remain open and absorb as much as you can while you are enrolled at the salon professional academy. It will go fast and will be some of the most memorable times of your lives!
