2016 Modern Salon Award

TSPA-Appleton wins Modern Salon Excellence in Education Award

The purpose of the MODERN SALON’s Excellence in Education program  is to help the professional beauty school community gather, share and celebrate examples of great salon education experiences and beauty career development happening across the country.

In 2016, the crop of cosmetology schools entering the program brought plenty of benchmarks, measurable results and innovation into their application process. “School pride and powerful results were very evident this year,” says MODERN SALON Editorial Director Michele Musgrove. “We are so impressed with the variety of top schools in the U.S. that entered MODERN SALON’s Excellence in Education 2016 program. We have chosen a select few that we believe show leadership and best practices that other schools can use to learn and grow.”

Honorees were determined based on key criteria in each category and grouped according to school size or whether or not they entered as a multi-unit school or single location. Two top honorees are recognized in each category—one individual school location and a multi-location school organization—and were announced Saturday, Nov. 5, 2016, at the AACS Annual Convention & Expo in Orlando, Florida.

“On behalf of the entire professional beauty industry, we express gratitude that there are so many professional cosmetology schools continuing to do amazing and valuable work to shape the future of beauty,” said MODERN SALON Publisher Steve Reiss. “The purpose of Excellence in Education is to make sure more of these great schools get the attention they deserve.”

We are honored to be chosen as the MODERN SALON’s Excellence in Education program winner!  Congratulations to our team here at TSPA-Appleton and everyone in the community that has helped us make Trim Hunger such a huge success!

Fall Career Fair 2016

Making Connections at TSPA’s Fall Career Fair

On November 7th, The Salon Professional Academy-Appleton hosted a Fall Career Fair. It was an amazing turnout, with 24 salons and spas in attendance. Not only do we want to help students become successful Cosmetologists and Aestheticians, but we go even farther than honing our students’ skills. We provide opportunities for students to meet Salon and Spa owners and managers before graduation, so when they are ready to apply for jobs, they already have a career network.

Check out the pictures at the bottom of this blog from this amazing day. Thank you all so much for being a part of this and making it such a success!

Together We Can TRIM HUNGER

14271981_2101290190095132_755517088_n

The Salon Professional Academy-Appleton Declares a WAR ON HUNGER!

Trim Hunger is dedicated to wiping out hunger in America and won’t stop until every food bank and pantry, every public school lunch program, and every community outreach effort has enough food to go around.

In 2014, Josif Wittnik of Appleton, Wi., was introduced to frightening and saddening statistics regarding the number of people in his own community, including many children, who were going without food each day. Motivated by this daily tragedy in his hometown, Josif, the co-owner of The Salon Professional Academy-Appleton (TSPA) and Salon CTI and Day Spa, leveraged their reach and the caring hearts of the other salon owners, staff, and students to sponsor fundraisers.

Please join us for Trim Hunger on Sunday, October 2nd from 9am-4pm. Stylists from Salons all over the area will be donating their time and talent to cut hair and paint orange nails for this event. The Salon Professional Academy is located at 3355 W. College Ave. Appleton, WI. All proceeds of this event will go towards our community food needs.

To make an appointment, please call 920-968-0433. Walk-ins are also welcome.

The Salon Professional Academy-Appleton offers Cosmetology, Aesthetics and MUD Makeup Programs. Be sure to also like The Salon Professional Academy and Trim Hunger on Facebook!

Job Shadowing: The Key to Your Future

Have you ever thought of becoming a Cosmetologist or Aesthetician but were hesitant because you are just unsure if you will like it? Is it too much of a commitment to just dive right in? If so, this job shadow opportunity could be the game-changer you didn’t know you needed.

To put it simply, job shadowing is the act of following, or shadowing a person as he or she goes about the day-to-day responsibilities of his or her career or career training. Here at The Salon Professional Academy, Appleton, we offer opportunities where you are able to schedule time to shadow our current students. Some students may have just started and others may be just about to graduate and begin launching their careers. You may come for a few hours or a full day. It is completely up to you how much time you would like to spend at TSPA-Appleton.
