TSPA Rochester Open House

Open House

Co-Owners Daniel Link and Jessica Amos

As of August 1st, 2016, Daniel Link, President of Marc Daniel Salon, Maple Grove and Jessica Amos, Owner of Hair Studio 52, Rochester bought the Rochester School of Hair Design and then partnered with The Salon Professional Academy. Over the last year we have been working hard on updating curriculum to be a Redken endorsed academy, adding massage therapy program, and remodeling our building. We are excited to partner with TSPA because,

TSPA is a certified Redken Business Resource and are the only beauty schools in the country awarded the ‘Recognized by Redken for Excellence in Education’ designation.” 

On September 11, 2017 we invited the community to join us at our Open House where we wanted to showcase the transformation in becoming The Salon Professional Academy of Rochester! We wanted to share with the licensed professional community our location that we will be having advanced classes available to become the education hub. We also want local salons to know what they can expect from our graduates as they move into the workforce.  In addition, we want future students to know more about our Cosmetology and Massage Therapy programs, and welcome them to meet current students and educators. We loved bringing guests from the community  to learn more about our school and that they are welcome to come in to receive a full menu of services for hair, makeup, nails, and massage at discounted prices.

Jill, Guest Services Coordinator, waiting to greet guests at our Open House!

As guests walked into TSPA Rochester (The Salon Professional Academy of Rochester) on Monday evening they were greeted with friendly faces and wonderful gifts. The fun didn’t  stop there, as they moved around our newly renovated space they had opportunities to speak with students, educators, staff, and owners. We over-heard many incoming guests exclaim  how much they loved the remodel and decor. Guests had the opportunity to learn about the cosmetology program and see some of the student work displayed. Students had prepared before and after pictures of their work as well as special occasion styles on mannequins. They also were able to enjoy complimentary chair massages by our current massage students. Open House attendees enjoyed appetizers, beverages, and were entered into drawings through out the evening. They even had the opportunity to stop at our Selfie Station to snap a pictures of themselves to post on social media with #tsparoch for the chance to win a night out! We rounded out the evening by enjoying a presentation by Redken on a smoky ombre color trend and had the chance to hear from co-owners Daniel Link and Jessica Amos about the transition of the school. The co-owners along with Sally from Salon Centric then had the chance to draw the winners from each category, which you can find below.

We were eager to introduce all of our staff and educators as we have added some new faces to our growing team! You can find updated headshots information about our team here. We are excited to currently have 3 Cosmetology Educators, 2 Massage Therapist Educators, along with the rest of our staff. If you did not get a chance to meet everyone on Monday evening, make sure to stop in and introduce yourself soon!
