"A couple of months ago, I decided to try the academy and made an appointment for a manicure. Lucky for me I wound up with Ashley S and had the best experience! My manicure was by far the best I have had in nearly 15 years. Aside from the quality of her work, I love that Ashley not only looks beautiful but is so sweet and thoughtful. I wound up making an appointment with her to cut my hair and I was not disappointed! She was able to give me a new hairdo and believe me when I tell you I put a lot of the decision making on her! She is great with making recommendations based on your needs and face shape. I just left from my third appointment and I feel great! Ashley has been very helpful in explaining each product she uses on me and helping me build my product supply. She has even taught me a few tricks to help me at home with my difficult bangs. I really look forward to my appointments and Ashley is a keeper for sure!!!
The best customer service i have ever had come from this place..thank you Kelly Kirk for every great haircuts you have given me!
Best Men's Haircut – Had another great hair cut and Manicure from Eric Gray at TSPA. He does an awesome job!! So, guys if you want a good haircut go see this guy. And for the ladies he does wonderful haircuts for you as well. I will continue going to Eric and recommending him. So, don't be shy go see Eric for your haircut, manicure, pedicure, etc...
And as always the staff at TSPA was wonderful and very friendly.
Alysse is Amazing!! – Alysse and the professional Educators at this school have made me feel right at ease! I have gotten two awesome haircuts, an all over color, highlights, paraffin dip and manicure from here all within the last month and all done by Alysse! That in itself should speak volumes for my confidence in Alysse's knowledge and abilities! I will definitely be retutning! =)

GREAT service at The Salon Professional Academy – I had a super wonderful experience yesterday at The Salon Professional Academy! Emily highlighted my hair and did a FANTASTIC job!
The good...and the bad – I came in with my hair in long layers, bra-strap length a la Jennifer Aniston and cut by a great girl at TSPA back in September. It was great, but I was looking to go shorter. Came in, went to front desk, and it took a few minutes for one of the receptionists to come and ask me about my appointment. Then, my stylist came forward and was quite enthused and very sweet. Based on the service I'd received in the past, I wasn't too anxious and followed him back.
He sat me down and ask me what I wanted. I told him that I was looking for something collarbone/shoulder length, with long, softly blended layers. I even showed him what length I wanted everything. He nodded, called his instructor over, and drew a couple diagrams. He began by chopping to the length I wanted, which was wonderful. But from there on, he started doing something strange.
First, he started picking up sections and cutting them much shorter than I expected, about nose-length. I figured that this was part of his layering strategy and left him alone - and it was hard to tell what the overall length was, because he pinned each section up after working with it. But midway through, I asked him how short the shortest layers would be, knowing that even with layers, there shouldn't be many that were too short. He pulled out a strand that, when sitting against my head, fell to about the middle of my ear. But, he reassured me, it would be blended in smoothly and I had no cause to worry.
But no matter how I tried, I couldn't get the fact that my "longest" layers were unfortunately thin and wispy, and that the majority of my layers were those short, choppy pieces. As he was preparing to cut another layer, I asked to see how the layers were turning out already. When I looked, I thought I would literally burst into tears. Instead of long, sleek shoulder length layers, I had poofy, thick chunky layers around my head and a long, thin tail that reached my "collarbone". It was a mullet, but worse.
I asked if he could leave the layers he hadn't cut longer, and he called his instructor over. She, thankfully, saw the devastation that was my hair, immediately knew that it was not what I had in mind and attempted to direct him to fix his mistakes. In the end, I got him to take the mullet into a chin-length bob, but at that point, there were too many of the short chunky layers for the bob to properly reach the intended length. Thankfully, his instructor saved the day by thinning out some of my top layers, fashioning the style into something that looked semi-wearable, hugged me and thanked me for my patience, and gave me her TSPA card in case I wanted to come back to get it fixed (which I eventually came back to do). My stylist ushered me out with a smile, but I think he was upset, too. In either case, I feel like his teacher handled the situation much more professionally - apologizing to the client, fixing the faults - than he.
I'm a girl who wants her hair to be as convenient as possible and I've had a bob by the Salon Professional Academy before, but this is literally the most time-consuming cut I've ever received. It takes me nearly 30 minutes to style each day - not including the time that it takes to blowdry and set the strands in place.
The experience at TSPA is hit and miss, and I've had multiple shares of hits. I'll definitely give it another chance, but hopefully, this was one miss that won't be repeated again.
Brittany Brown is awesome!!! – I went yesterday for a mani/pedi which was very inexpensive and got great service! Brittany Brown was very cheerful and did an amazing job. She made me feel very comfortable and my nails look great. There are two Brittany B's and I haven't tried the other Brittany, but I was really impressed with this girl. I will be going back to her for my hair next time. At this sort of beauty school, you have to be prepared to spend extra time, but it's worth it!
Wonderfully Surprised!!!! – Today was my first visit to this salon and it won't be my last. With some intimidation and curiosity I picked up the phone and gave them a call. Precious Kate answered the phone and patiently listened to my past wow's and present expectations. With no reservations she said she'd love to help me. She listened to all my needs: color, highlights and a cut and delivered on all. The yellow blonde NOW gone; the cut, color and highlights were beautiful...very natural. It seemed the instructors made themselves very available to the students. I'm sad to say that today was Kate's last day but she gave me a recommendation. Good Luck Kate and Thank You for reviving my attitude about Beauty School"s. KATE, YOU WILL DO WELL WHEREVER YOU GO because you are a good listener and a great stylist! Thank's for all the hair tips too.
