At The Salon Professional Academy(TSPA), Dallas we always seek opportunities for our students to expand their skills, get real-world experience, and allow them to grow as future professionals. It’s these experiences that help us create a unique educational experience that can prepare students for the careers that they seek to create.
While we actively seek to find and create these opportunities for our students, sometimes these opportunities find us.
In February of 2018, a selection of our students had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to present new looks and products on stage.
The Benefits of the Relationship
As part of The Salon Professional Academy family of schools, we are honored to have a relationship with Redken that gives our students access to products that help them create the looks and styles that will become the foundation of a vibrant career.
In addition to the access to great products and exclusive training opportunities, sometimes we gain opportunities to work with the Redken families in new and unique situations.
That is exactly what happened, this year when we were given the opportunity to work alongside major Redken artists to create looks onstage and help some amazing Redken Artists present a whole new product line to distributors.
The Students’ Experience
“Working with the Redken artist was an amazing and eye-opening experience! It was so interesting to see their thought process about different color techniques and how they worked together to make the best hair possible! It made me want to work hard and become part of the Redken family one day!”
“When I enrolled at TSPA, I never imagined that the opportunity to work with world-renowned Redken Artists like Lori Zabel and George Garcia would be possible! Assisting at the Saloncentric showcase gave me a priceless glimpse into what I can do with my Redken education and inspired me to be the best artist I can be.”
“I am so thankful for a school like TSPA that gave me the opportunity to meet and interact with some amazing stylists. This will definitely be an experience I will never forget!”
“My experience was unbelievable getting to work with the Redken Artists. I had an absolute blast and I learned so much! I will be forever grateful for this wonderful opportunity.”
