I can’t say how much in the last two months you have been on my mind. I recently moved salons from fantastic sams to great clips in Clermont. I was hired on at Great Clips as an Assistant manager and was asked this past Tuesday if I would like to meet the owner who owns about 36 salons… All great clips of course… my response was YES!!! When I was introduced he asked me how long I had been doing hair and my response was less than 3 yrs. He said “oh my gosh I can’t believe that!!!! I have seen your work on my son really???” ”Yes,” I said. “I studied at The Salon Professional Academy. He was amazed and then asked if I would cut his hair. When I was done he asked if I would come to his office on Friday. When I showed up he sat me down and asked me if I would be interested in teaching at the Great Clips educational building… I was very excited and I have to say each time I meet him I just kept thinking something you said to me the last week I was in school: Boom Baby Boom!!! You also said you never know until you try, so go for it… I can’t say how much this has done for me in the past two month it has given me the courage to try something new.. and become the stylist I truly am…
Stephanie, Professional Stylist
After going to college and changing my degree three times, I still didn’t know what I wanted to do in life. The beauty industry allowed me to be who I am and who I want to be! My favorite part of attended TSPA was the high energy and encouragement I received. Every day the educators had a smile on their faces and were ready to push me beyond my limits. TSPA allowed me to be true to myself and encouraged my individuality and creativity. I was finally in a place that felt like “home” to me. Not only did TSPA prepare me for my career, I also learned other priceless life lessons.
Christina, Professional Stylist
In high school, my senior project was on a career as a cosmetologist. I did hair and makeup for a fashion show and I loved it! Everyone loved my work, so after trying college, I decided to try the beauty industry. My favorite part of TSPA was the interaction with my guests. They were so fun and understanding and they would get excited as I grew. Plus, having clientele already asking for you while you’re in school makes you feel good about your talent.

TSPA changed my life. It took me from a reactive zone to a proactive zone. I also had the opportunity to meet some amazing people, like my educators, fellow students and guests. The TSPA staff trusted in me when I did not trust in myself. They saw the potential in me and they developed it even when I could not see it for myself. I was taught, encouraged, disciplined, pushed and loved. It made me the stylist I am today, and that experience remains priceless to me!
Jani, Redken Master Specialist
Pursuing a career in the beauty industry was actually never something I had considered even though I have always been a creatively-driven person. Five years ago I saw a commercial for TSPA and was so impressed with the tour of the facility and the energy of the staff that I had to be a part of it! It has been amazing. The true to life experience was invaluable at TSPA. I
worked on real guests, four days a week for months. I was well prepared to step into my career and feel confident. I had total access to TSPA educators and guest educators who have worked and taught in high-paced, elite salon environments for years.
Crystal, Redken Master Specialist
The beauty industry is all about making someone feel better about themselves and enhancing someone’s natural beauty. I loved knowing that I could help someone else be happy with their appearance; it’s the best feeling in the world! The most valuable lessons I learned at TSPA were “no matter what, love what you do and be happy,” and “always, always, always stay positive!” TSPA’s positive atmosphere and fun environment made it easy to be happy and positive! TSPA taught me how to interact with guests and make them feel good about themselves. Without those skilld I wouldn’t be as successful as I am today!
Carey, Stylist at Walt Disney World
I have always been passionate about hair and wanted to do it forever. I loved everything about TSPA. The structure there taught me to keep on point and the educators were wonderful.
TSPA taught me everything from dressing the part to caring about what the client wants. I learned great customer service and professionalism.
Shera, Redken Master Specialist
I always had the desire to improve the way people feel about themselves. I want to change their life by changing their hair. The most valuable lesson I learned at TSPA was the purpose of goals. I learned how to set a goal, how to achieve it, what to do once I meet it and how to set my next goal. I loved the personal interaction between client, student and teacher at TSPA. The educators always made sure we were set up for success.
