5 Characteristic Traits That Lead To Salon Success

A successful career in Cosmetology is only half of the battle when it comes to achieving and maintaining salon success.  TSPA Appleton’s beauty school program is designed to train students for much more than passing the state boards. We develop the entire salon professional with great technical ability, business & marketing training, and the guest handling skills that are in high demand by top salons and spas. However, while all those traits are super important let’s dive into 5 Character Traits that can lead salon professionals to great success.

  1. Determination– Determination is the force or drive one has when they want to achieve their goals and dreams. With long hours, rotating schedule, competitive market, product sales, building and maintaining a steady clientele, cosmetology is not for the faint of heart. It’s extremely important to make sure that focus and determination are key elements in helping you achieve your short term goals and eventually long term goals.
  2. Listening– Being a successful hairstylist means listening to your clients in more ways than one. Active listening is extremely important but so is being aware of your client’s body language. Noticing visual cues can help you know what your clients’ needs and expectations are.
  3. Creativity– Cosmetology is a creative field where clients are able to rely on their stylist’s options to help them make important decisions when it comes to their looks. Being someone who is creative you are able to find beauty in almost everything and in turn, this allows you to create beauty every single day by working with new innovative techniques.
  4. Confidence– A key ingredient in having your own happiness and success depends largely on how confident you are. Self-confidence is all about believing that you have the power within yourself to be and do whatever you set your mind too. As you enter the beauty industry, remember that a successful beauty artist is a journey, not a sprint. All you need is experience and willingness to grow. “The key to your own success and happiness lies within.” – Jon Gonzales
  5. Passion– As a beauty artist, hair and body becomes your canvas. Your love for creating beautiful work comes from the tools that are taught and combined with numerous influences that create a masterpiece. You cannot put a price on the joy that one feels after you create a lasting change that helps them feel beautiful inside and out. Without passion, there is no purpose and no life in the masterpiece that was created.

2019 TSPA U Experience

Our Second Annual TSPA U Experience was held on August 20th. This all-day event was opened to the community to drop in and connect with students and educators.  They saw our culture first hand, met with salons and learned about placement after graduation and discussed the future of a beauty student.

 

Guests were greeted with balloons, refreshments, grand prize drawings and local salons that filled the student salon training area. Those that participated in the event learned alongside our students in the classrooms and shadowed them as they performed services on guests and got to experience the TSPA culture first hand. All the while learning about the beauty industry and the rewards it has to offer as a successful career choice. Our TSPA U Experience spotlighted our students using their creativity, demonstrating new trendy hair styles and make-up applications.

 

The Salon Professional Academy students are some of the top recruited new stylists to premium salons in Wisconsin. Students, future students and their parents were able to see on the day of the TSPA U Experience some of the salons that they could potentially work at after graduation and what it takes to make sure they are prepared. We had many salons and spas join us, such as, The Barbershop, Create Salon and Spa, Salon CTI, Keith’s Hair House, New Style, Men’s Hair House, Sports Clips, Ulta Beauty, Mane Attraction, The Cutting Edge and many more premium salons and spas in the Fox Valley. Our students and guests were able to walk away with information, memories and amazing prizes.
