Welcome These Amazing Alumni to our Hall of Fame

At The Salon Professional Academy(TSPA), Dallas we are proud of each and every one of our students.

We often say that we have the best job in the world because we get to help our students learn the skills they need for the career they will be moving into, but we also get to cheer them on as they learn more about themselves as well. We love supporting our students as they grow and blossom into budding beauty professionals, ready to create an amazing career.

That support extends far beyond the students that currently walk our halls. It extends past graduation, and far into the career that is waiting for each of our amazing students. We often say that once you are a student of TSPA Dallas, you become part of our family.

And that bond lasts forever.

It’s that family connection that builds the foundation of our school, with bonds and relationships that we take very seriously. Which is why, in 2016, we officially introduced our Hall of Fame.

Created to recognize our graduates who have gone on to create amazing waves in their careers, our Hall of Fame winners gain the acknowledgements they deserve, from the school that set them on their path.

Presented with a plaque at our annual banquet, we party the night away with food, friends, and the family that makes us who we are.

This year we are proud to welcome three more amazing alumni to our Hall of Fame.

We are so inspired by each and every one of these professionals, and are proud that they are part of the TSPA Dallas family. Get to know these amazing individuals and learn about all of their accomplishments, and the beautiful futures they have created for themselves.
