Our Foundation

Historically, beauty schools were graduating students with just enough training to pass a state board exam. The businesses that hired these graduates were forced to create “apprentice” programs to complete their training before they were prepared to work effectively in their salon.

Together, TSPA and Redken developed a curriculum that teaches our students the necessary technical skills along with business, marketing, and guest handling tools that better prepares them for a career after graduation. This approach reduces or eliminates the necessity for an “apprentice” period in salons and can provide a competitive advantage for our grads in the marketplace. The successfulness of this program has grown The Salon Professional Academy from a single school to locations across the United States and Canada – producing thousands of graduates who are The Next Level of Salon Professional.™
