As Redken continues to lead the industry in education and innovation, students at TSPA will continue to benefit directly as that innovation and education is incorporated right into their curriculum. Additionally, they will have opportunities to receive that information in the classroom directly from visiting professionals within Redken’s Artist network.

The Salon Professional Academy has an exclusive relationship with Redken 5th Avenue NYC that is realized through ongoing collaboration, education, competitions, and additional benefits and scholarships for TSPA students.


Recognized for Excellence

Because of our commitment to industry-leading education, business skills that prepare students for more than passing state boards, and a desire to see our students surpass all expectations for this profession, Redken has provided The Salon Professional Academy franchise locations the exclusive designation of “Recognized by Redken for Excellence in Education.”
