What makes the strategic alliance between The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA) and REDKEN 5th Ave NYC so significant for cosmetology program students who attend our Rapid City beauty school? In a word, Opportunity. In any skills-based educational environment, it is the minimum obligation of the school to provide training and information that can support a career in the profession the students are seeking. More than 15 years ago, TSPA joined forces with Redken so that the most relevant, industry-leading techniques were being included in the educator training and the student curriculum; the result of which has led to positioning our graduates to be highly in-demand by top salons and spas.
In addition to having a direct line to current beauty trends and techniques, TSPA locations are full-line retailers of Redken products. Our students train with some of the best professional beauty products on the market and guests can not only purchase products at competitive prices, but all hair services include the use of these same products to provide a professional finished look for guests.
Lastly, this collaboration and training have led to a very exclusive status for TSPAs. Of the nearly 2,000 beauty schools in the US, only The Salon Professional Academy is recognized by Redken for excellence in education. We are proud to have earned this distinction and are excited about what it means to our students as they receive their education and eventually enter the professional workplace.
