New Academy Announcement

Just outside of Philadelphia, there is a family-friendly community named after an 18th century Tavern, King of Prussia – the namesake of King Fredrick the Great. KOP, as it is referred to by locals, boasts one of the largest shopping malls in America and is now home to one of the newest TSPA locations. Please join us in welcoming Nick and Jerry Scamuffa to The Salon Professional Academy family!

Nick knew from a very young age that he wanted to be an expert stylist. After graduating from beauty school, his skills and ability to build client relationships steadily lifted him through the ranks at a high-end salon. In 2005, he opened Nicholas Sebastian Hair Salon with just one employee. Over the next nine years, Nick’s business grew ten-fold in revenue, with two locations and a team of more than forty people. During his career, Nick consistently has been dismayed by the general perception of the beauty industry, which steers students away from it as a career path. With TSPA, Nick sees an opportunity to not only change this perception, but also develop students who are better positioned for success in the profession upon graduation.

A resident of the Philadelphia area his entire life, Jerry (Nick’s dad) graduated from Peirce College and has worked in the supermarket business for more than forty years. After running a very successful store for over three decades, Jerry moved up to the corporate level to facilitate product placement in stores. Now Jerry is happy to announce his retirement from the grocery business in order to partner with Nick and contribute his management skills to the position of director at the KOP TSPA. Jerry is inspired by the TSPA proven business model and the innovative teaching technologies that appeal to young professionals. He looks forward to promoting the TSPA concept and motivating his students “to reach for the stars.”

We congratulate Nick and Jerry on their new business venture and we are proud to have this dynamic father-son duo on Team TSPA!
