“I absolutely loved my experience at TSPA. Everything from the day I took my tour up until my last day was amazing! I learned so much in my 15 months that I feel like I could take on the world. The way I learn is so hands on, they teach in ways that made it so easy for me to retain all of the information. All in all I would not change a thing about my experience. I am so glad I chose to take this journey with my fellow classmates, the educators and the staff at The Salon Professional Academy! Thank you all so much!”
