  • Learn basic nail care as well as advanced design, chemistry, and artificial nail product application and maintenance
  • Business and marketing skills that include social media to maximize your earning potential
  • A student kit full of professional tools and technology to enhance your experience
  • A supportive team dedicated to you becoming what you’ve always dreamed of

  • Students in a beauty  program go on to fully complete their education,  have measurably less student loan debt,  and are in their career working sooner that people enrolled in a traditional college or university program

An education at TSPA leads you to many fun and exciting career possibilities. Our graduates are employed by leading beauty and wellness establishments and open successful businesses of their own. Some share their talents in the entertainment world and at vacation destinations like cruise ships and resorts.

Each program available and your choice of Full-Time or Part-Time, when applicable, affects the total cost. Additionally, a variety of ways to afford an investment in your education are available to those who qualify that can affect your final cost. We offer very competitive program costs and are transparent with our pricing but believe it is most responsible to provide numbers in the context of an admissions meeting with all of the available options included. Please contact our admissions office to discuss with our team.

While specific content will vary from program to program, most courses include a combination of classroom training paired with hands-on practice in the student salon training area. Most courses will include complimentary training covering a variety of topics like social media, business, and guest/client relations designed to increase your earning potential and longevity in the industry.

Our admissions team is here to make your experience a great one and will support you throughout the entire enrollment process. There is your class start date to determine, some paperwork to take care of along with arranging for how the investment in your education will be handled. The school’s admissions representative will provide you with a simple checklist to make the process as easy as possible.
