Beauty school culture is an important part of your overall educational experience. The vibe of a school, events, and day to day life are all key factors in choosing where to attend. Our team at The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA), Cedar Falls has worked hard to create and maintain a welcoming educational environment where individuality and creativity are celebrated!
Culture That’s Unique and Upbeat
At TSPA Cedar Falls, we believe in the power of a positive attitude. From our educators to our students, staying upbeat is what makes our culture so great! To celebrate the incredible, unique students in our barber styling program, we have monthly student appreciation days. Beauty school students work hard every single day. The least we can do is give back a little each month! In addition to giving back to our students, we also do our best to give back to the community around us. For example, sometimes we allow students to wear jeans in lieu of their required black uniform as long as they bring in three cans for the local food bank. We believe in positivity and inclusiveness in all things. That’s why giving back is such an intrinsic part of our culture.
Life as a Student
As a TSPA Cedar Falls student, your daily routine is different based on where you are in your studies. Let us break it down for you!
Students at a Foundational Level
Students will start by clocking in and being greeted by their educator. After this, the class will have some bonding time to chat and recap the day before. After this, it’s time to get into class! This could include starting a new unit, testing out a product/technique from the day before, and then moving on to practical skills. We always play music during this time to get the energy flowing and increase creativity!
Students on the Floor
For senior students, the day also starts with being greeted by your educator and clocking in. Then the student will look at what’s on their book (or agenda) for the day. Many of our senior students are booked with clients for the whole day. When it is a slower day, students get the chance to research and network on social media, take walk-in guests, attend a pop-up class, or work on a mannequin to practice techniques.
Learn and Grow With Friends
We want TSPA Cedar Falls to be a safe place for students to learn, grow, and experiment. Our school is also a great place to make friends and form lasting connections. Spending your days with like-minded individuals who share your passions is a great way to make lifelong friends! The people you meet during school (friends, staff, educators) could also help you find a job after graduation.
