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!

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.

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. The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA) of Appleton WI and nationwide have organized fundraising efforts to bring awareness to the issue of feeding the hungry in America.

TRIM HUNGER, a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization, is dedicated to raising awareness and donations to address the issue of hunger in America. Through its affiliation with the nationwidebeauty school franchise The Salon Professional Academy and with the help of generouscorporate sponsors, TRIM HUNGER is igniting the passion to help those in need in the hearts ofbeauty professionals all across the country. “In an industry already focused on helping, giving, and transforming lives, TRIM HUNGER will have the limitless support of beauty schools, salons, spas, and manufacturers to provide nutritious meals for those greatest in need,” stated Josif Wittnik, the founder of TRIM HUNGER.

In 2014, 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 goingwithout food each day. Motivated by this daily tragedy in his hometown, Josif, the co-owner of The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA) and Salon CTI, leveraged their reach and the caring hearts of the other salon owners, staff, and students to sponsor fundraisers. By the end of 2014, thousands of dollars were raised to help the local food bank provide meals to the community. Knowing that more needed to be done, both locally and across the United States, Josif brought this issue to the attention of executives with REDKEN 5th Avenue NYC and L’Oreal USA in January 2015. Since then, TRIM HUNGER continues to receive an outpouring of support from The Salon Professional Academy franchise and corporate sponsors including REDKEN, ESSIEAdidas, WOW Logistics, and Keller – planners, architects, builders.

Events will take place year round, culminating in a month-long effort in September (National Hunger Action Month) to raise funds and awareness for the hunger problem facing our country. On September 27th, TRIM HUNGER hopes to break the Guinness Book of World Records’ existing record for the most people cutting hair at the same time when 20 TRIM HUNGER Cut-A-Thons will be held simultaneously at The Salon Professional Academies (TSPAs) across the nation.The TSPA of Appleton, WI will be participating in the September 27th TRIM HUNGER Cut-a-Thon at their location, 3355 W.
