Covid-19 Info

UPDATE: Reopening for Students!

I’m rethinking my previous post… maybe 13 is actually a lucky number and I don’t need to be superstitious at all! Our doors have been shuttered for 13 weeks but we are very excited to report that we will be reopening for students on Monday, June 15th! We still do not know when we will be permitted by the governor to open for guest services but we are thrilled that we will be seeing our students next week. Please see our separate post for our Health and Safety Plan.

——————————————————————————————————————————————

I’ve never considered myself a superstitious person but then Friday the 13th happened! On Friday, March 13th, Governor Wolf closed our school because we were in the epicenter of Pennsylvania’s pandemic outbreak… Montgomery County. At the time it was supposed to be a two-week closure. We are now in week 12!

What we have been up to….

  • The physical building has been closed during the stay-at-home-order so we changed the phone message to ask everyone not to leave messages but to contact us through our website or to email admissions@tspacollegeville.com.
  • The Pennsylvania Board of Cosmetology made an emergency change to their rules to allow us to provide temporary distance learning to our students shortly after we were closed.
  • We began online learning on March 31st. Our educators and students did a remarkable job at adapting! We have even had some new students start during this time and we have had a few graduations!
  • Interested in a tour? We have a virtual tour prepared to show you around our beautiful academy! You do not have to put your dreams on hold during this time! You can tour, enroll and start classes while we wait for the building to reopen! Simply email us at admissions@tspacollegeville.com or text us at 610-557-3790 to get started!
  • When we reopen, we will be following recommendations from the CDC, Pennsylvania and our franchise in order to keep students, staff, and guests safe and comfortable. Watch the website for the new guidelines as that time approaches.
  • We are not scheduling appointments now because we still have no idea when we are going to be able to have anyone in the building. We will update the website and social media to let you know when we will be available to start manning the phones and we will do our best to accommodate you as soon as possible!

We miss being with our students in the building and we miss our guests! While we are doing our best, it is not the same and we can’t wait to be together again!

We hope you are safe and healthy! Thank you for the continued support!

TSPA Collegeville is Ready to Serve You

TSPA Collegeville is OPEN for Guest Services!

We are so excited to welcome our students into the beautiful Student Salon Training Area at The Salon Professional Academy(TSPA), Collegeville! They have worked hard to get here and are ready to showcase their talent and perfect their skills on clients. Participating in the student salon training area is an important step in the education of our cosmetology and esthetic students, and one that will help them reach their dreams of a successful career in the beauty industry.

There are many benefits to getting a service in the student salon training area at TSPA Collegeville.

Affordable Services

One of the most well known benefits of getting your style service done by beauty students is the decrease in cost.

Because the students are still mastering their skill, the price tag can be anywhere from 20-30% lower than at a traditional salon. That is a huge reduction!

Prepared Students

Before our students begin showcasing their skill in the student salon training area, they spend hours practicing and learning the mechanics of what makes cosmetology and esthetics tick.

With classes from anatomy, sanitation, chemical safety and more, students are trained in preparation for a successful career. The first step in that journey is the skills they will master in the student salon training area.

In addition to the foundational course students participate in, they are also supported in the student salon training area by their licensed educators. Ready to answer questions and assist students in any roadblocks they may intersect, our talented educators are dedicated to our students’ success.

Trendy Environment

Beauty students are hungry for the newest trend, and you can bet that the second they see a new look they are working to master it. Because of that, you could receive that hair color, or face mask, that you have been drooling over on social media.

Plus, the facilities at TSPA Collegeville are beautifully laid out, with features and equipment similar to what you will see in the trendiest salons. It is a calming atmosphere that will help you to feel pampered and relaxed.

Support the Next Generation

One of the biggest benefits of heading into your local cosmetology school for a service is that you will be supporting the next generation of beauty professionals in reaching their dreams.

Beyond that support, you could also find that cosmetologist or esthetician that you have been looking for. The one that cuts your hair perfectly, and waxes the perfect arch in your brows. Finding your beauty pro soul mate while they are in school means that you will have decades of perfect color and flawless brows ahead of you.

Are you ready to head in?

We would love to welcome you for a session of pampering and beauty.
