Highland Park Village is more than just another shopping center– it was America’s first ever planned shopping center!

At Highland Park Village, you can find high-end stores like Jimmy Choo, Saint Laurent, Dior, Tom Ford, and Fendi.

We Love Dallas, You Should Too!

Here at The Salon Professional Academy Dallas, we think one of the best ways to become a better person and a better beauty professional is to give back to our community. Because we believe in this so strongly, we offer several events at our school throughout the school year. On September 28th, we offered a TRIM HUNGER event! Our students gave shampoos, blow-outs, and cuts to raise over $1600 for Christian Community Action. Our fundraising went toward the Food Pantry and those who benefit from it. We also love to offer the opportunity to donate blood during blood drives. Our first drive was held in September of 2014, and we look forward to doing more in the future!

If you can’t wait for our next giving opportunity, there are several other events you can be a part of in our local community. Check these opportunities out!
