We are so happy to have had the chance to sit down with Sherri, one of our amazing graduates, to talk about her experience at The Salon Professional Academy and how it has shaped her career today 💕
Why did you choose The Salon Professional Academy?
Sherri – I chose The Salon Professional Academy because when I walked in, the state-of-the-art salon was absolutely beautiful… I went to a couple of different schools beforehand and I didn’t feel like the fit was right. Once I came in and saw the salon, it was just gorgeous; I love Redken products; and the educators were just phenomenal. I just knew it would set me off in the right area of my career.
How did The Salon Professional Academy prepare you for your current career?
Sherri – The Salon Professional Academy prepared me for my current career by not only giving me the tools for cosmetology, or to do hair, but they also have a big business background involved with it as well. I was able to learn hair, learn how to do color, but I also learned how to move that forward and be able to run my own business; or in my case, multiple salons.
How did the educators prepare you for your current career?
Sherri – Pretty much all the educators really gave me something else to take with me. The great thing is that you really get on the floor and start working on the floor immediately, rather than just sitting in a classroom learning from a book.
What would you tell a potential student that’s considering The Salon Professional Academy?
Sherri – I would tell a potential student that is considering coming to this school to definitely do it. This is one of the best choices I’ve ever made. It really set me up for my career. I don’t think I’d be anywhere near where I am right now, in running the 15 salons that I do, if I didn’t come here. I walked out confident to go into this business. I walked out knowing my craft, knowing that I’m going to know more out there, and I came out ready and prepared. They have very skilled educators, the salon is state-of-the-art, it’s absolutely gorgeous, and you come out ready to hit the salon floor, and ready to run your career.
