Local Beauty Gurus to Follow

Beauty is an industry full of ever changing trends, ideas, and looks. It is something that is driven visually, and ever since the introduction of social media into our culture – much of that driving has happened through those social channels.
Beauty trends, how tos, and amazing examples of beautiful looks are shared online, pushing these “fashionistas” into a type of celebrity that people flock to for ideas, tips, and beautiful pictures that spark their own imagination.
Chances are you have seen or followed some of these beauty influencers at some point, and you may have even been influenced by their pictures and skills. There is a reason they are called influencers after all.
If you are looking for influencers to follow, here are some local to the Dallas area that will have you mastering new techniques and ogling over beautiful images for weeks to come.

Redken and AACS are Offering Scholarships!

For many, the dreams of going to cosmetology or esthetics school might feel like they are out of reach or perhaps even impossible. Sometimes this barrier may stem from personal barriers (“Who will watch my kids?”), stereotypes (“Beauty school is for losers”), or bad advice (“That’s not a real career”). While some of these untrue cliches can really hurt or diminish someone’s desire to fight for their dream, there is something wildly more common that can put the brakes on it all together.
We are talking here about financial investment.
It is no secret that cosmetology or esthetics School is expensive, with an average cost of $13,715.18. It still remains one of the most economical (and quickest) ways to launch yourself into a viable career, however, as CollegeData.com reports the average cost of a 4 year degree is $49,320.
While that financial burden may seem impossible to navigate, there are many options, such as scholarships and financial aid, available to you that can help to alleviate that weight.

TSPA Dallas Financial Scholarships

In addition, because TSPA Dallas is a member of the AACS (American Association of Cosmetology Schools), our students have access to even more scholarships that can supplement the cost of schooling further. The AACS Scholarships, along with the Redken Scholarship, may help you lower your tuition.

If you are in need of financial assistance, or are interested in one of the many scholarships we have available, read through the list of options below, or reach out to our financial aid department, and we can guide you through your applications, every step of the way.

A Huge Congratulations to Anna Geleske!

Last month, the owner of The Salon Professional Academy – Dallas was honored at the 41st annual state conference of the National Association of Social Workers in Texas as the Public Citizen of the Year.
This is a huge award that is given to one Texas citizen each year who has contributed to the community with accomplishments that exemplify the mission of the NASW as well as made a significant contributions to the at-risk vulnerable populations, both in quality of life, and in social issues.

TSPA Dallas Anna Geleske wins award

“We are not only teaching students a vocation, but we are teaching life skills as well.”

Anna has risen to the standards of this prestigious award over the years with her work in the community and by devoting her life to not only her school but to her students as well. Anyone who has stepped into TSPA Dallas’ beautiful facility has witnessed this, you can nearly feel it in the air as Anna dedicates her time to each of her students and helps them to prepare for the careers and lives that await them after their graduation from TSPA Dallas.

“We believe in taking care of others and helping them achieve things

that will take them into a positive future.”

What you may not know is that the dedication Anna has shown to her students extends beyond the classroom. Ever since the school’s opening in 2004 Anna’s focus has been on helping her students succeed. In that first class Anna and her husband helped a student who couldn’t afford the courses complete her schooling and start her new life, she now owns her salon and has two beautiful children. Something that wouldn’t have been possible without Anna. Since then, she has helped countless students to overcome personal struggles and complete school to change their lives. More than just being a cheerleader, Anna has helped students find housing, as well as working with them to secure basic necessities such as clothing, shoes, and food.

“Winning this award has given me the opportunity to expand my network

of services and help even more students {} better.”

It’s the selfless giving and love, that Anna exhibits has given TSPA Dallas a culture of integrity and love that makes us what we are.

Her commitment to her school, to her community, and to her students has shown for years, and we are proud to see her works recognized.

From everyone here at TSPA Dallas: Congrats Anna! We love you!
