Student Spotlight: Meet the Aesthetician’s

There is something about self-care that is so satisfying. One important form of self-care is proper skincare, however, taking time out of your busy schedule to really focus on the important things like yourself and your skin care routine can be challenging. Your skin deserves to become part of your routine and your habits that make up your day- to-day lives and our Aesthetic students can help you with just that!!

 

What does an Aesthetic student do?

Aesthetic student is considered an Aesthetician. Aestheticians are specialists in the cleansing, beautification and preservation of the health of skin on the entire body including the face and neck. Our Aesthetics program teaches the latest techniques to purifying, balancing and renewing the skin as well as the artistry of make-up application. Because TSPA is proud to be a Bioelements Partner School we also offer a curriculum that is infused with the latest technical training from the industry leader in skincare.

 

What Types of Treatments do Student Aestheticians Perform?

Our Student Aestheticians spend 19 weeks being intensely trained on a number of specialized techniques for skin analysis to make sure that they are able to help their clients with a wide range of needs. Before any treatment is performed on a guest the student sits down with their guest and does a consultation. The consultation is to ensure that the student is getting to know the guest and their skin type so the right products are used for the end goal.

Some services that are our Aesthetic students preform but are not limited to:

* Facials

* Back Facials

* Chemical Peels

* Body Waxing

* Eye Lash Extensions

* Make-up Applications

 

Meet Our Aesthetic Students:

Libby- “Hi! I’m Libby. I’m a dog and cat mom who has always had a love for skin. One day, I was doing a mask and thought, “Hey! Why don’t I do this for a living?” I have a customer service background and can’t wait to add those skills to the ones that I have acquired here at TSPA! I think after graduation I can definitely see myself in a spa setting in the area. Hope to meet you soon!”

 

Maria-My love for being an aesthetician began in 8th grade when I had terrible acne problems and I wanted to do something about it, that’s when I really got into skin care products! You can say I’m definitely a skin care junkie! I’m here at The Salon Professional Academy of Appleton to improve my knowledge more and grow more with the other aesthetician students. It is a very emotionally rewarding profession making people feel good, and in turn it makes me feel good! It really is happiness for all!!  I love what I do and it shows!”

 

Stephanie-Hi, I am Stephanie, yooper born and raised. I have always loved makeup but since great makeup starts with great skin, I developed a passion for both and I wanted to make this a career path that I could excel in. I want to help everyone look and feel their best because when you look good, you feel good and that happiness is contagious.”

 

Erica-My name is Erica and helping others to feel beautiful has always been a passion of mine. I grew up in San Paulo, Brazil before moving to the United States. Prior to pursuing my dreams of becoming an aesthetician, I stayed home to raise my two beautiful children. My favorite part of becoming an aesthetician is to help others feel confident with their skin, but hope to touch their soul as well!

Why You Should Start in June (or before)

Could You Qualify For Added Funds For Cosmetology School?

June Start Dates Are The Best Start Dates  – Why You Should Start Cosmetology In June (or before)

June is an amazing month! The sun is shining, summer is beginning, and those mysterious vacations are getting ever closer. But June also holds another little secret, one that if you have been thinking about starting cosmetology school could result in added funds for school in the form of grants and federal aid. That probably seems like a mouthful. And that’s to be expected. Financial aid can be a confusing and sometimes daunting process. To help ease any confusion, here are a few basics, as well as details as to how starting in summer can result in added financial benefits.

Beauty School Financial Aid

The FAFSA

The Salon Professional Academy Appleton is proud to offer financial aid to those who qualify. To apply for financial aid students will be asked to fill out the FAFSA. This is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. It will compile all of your information and determine your award amount. The award amount that you receive is based off of many things, including income and schooling.

Loan Types

There are two different types of loans that you can get through the federal loan system: subsidized and unsubsidized. The interest on subsidized loans is paid by the federal government while you are in school or your loans are deferred. Unsubsidized loans on the other hand, accrue interest while you are in school. This is important to remember as the money you borrow will have to be paid back, and the type of loan it is, will determine the interest and even the monthly payment amount.

Federal Pell Grant

When applying for federal aid through the FAFSA you are also applying for the Pell Grant. This is a federal grant that is distributed based on need. Pell grants are only available for undergrad students, or students receiving certain degrees. You can qualify for the federal Pell Grant as a student at TSPA Appleton. Unlike federal loans, Pell Grants do not need to be repaid, and can make a considerable dent in your education financing.

Summer Aid Benefit

As mentioned at the beginning, starting school in June can create an added benefit towards financial aid. This is because the FAFSA stretches from July 1st to June 30th in a year span, meaning that if you begin school prior to the June 30th cut off you will be receiving funds, and possibly even a Pell Grant, from the previous year and then again in July when the cycle resets itself. Utilizing the FAFSA scheduling in such a way can help to eliminate any funding gap you may have, as well as take full advantage of any pell grant you may receive, ultimately decreasing the amount you will have to pay back. If financials have been keeping you from pursuing your dreams, don’t let this June pass you by. Contact our Admissions Team and get your application process started before time runs out! The start date for June is the 25th!

*Financial aid, scholarships and payment plans are available to those who qualify. The Salon Professional Academy Appleton is located at 3355 W. College Ave. Appleton, WI 54914. Feel free to call us at 920-968-0434 for more information or go to www.tspaappleton.com
