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.
