What Can I Learn in Skin Care School?

Do you know what an education in facials and skin care from The Salon Professional Academy, Melbourne and Delray Beach entails? Whether you’re considering attending facial/skin care school or just dipping your toe into the idea, it’s important to know about the curriculum. Here are the basic subjects you’ll learn if you choose to study with us.

Skin Analysis

A skin analysis is when a skin care specialist looks at a client’s skin under a magnifying lamp to determine skin type, skin conditions, and the best course of action. During skin care school, it’s standard to be trained on how to identify conditions like oily, acne-prone skin; dry, dull, aging skin; red or sensitive skin; and fine lines and wrinkles. When performing a skin analysis, a skin care specialist looks for skin type (oily, dry, combination) and skin conditions like acne, wrinkles, sun damage, rosacea, and more. In your facial/skin care education, you can learn about which products, regimens, and lifestyle changes can help with skin conditions and improve overall skin quality.

Facial/skin care education can teach you the anatomy and physiology of the skin, hair growth cycles, and the different properties of light, dark, and sensitive skin. This information is crucial in performing effective, safe, and hygienic waxing services. Another key part of waxing is learning the different techniques for the underarms, face, legs, chest, and arms. It’s you can also learn the difference between hard and soft wax, how to minimize waxing pain, sanitation techniques, and the best aftercare methods for waxing.

Learning to perform facials starts with the skin analysis and then involves cleansing. Your skin care education can teach you cleansing techniques that remove dirt and toxins from the skin. The next step of a facial is exfoliation, which removes dead skin cells so skin can regenerate new ones. This can also release congestion and brighten the skin. During school you can learn about using ingredients like glycolic acid, vitamin C, and enzyme treatments to treat different skin conditions. Following exfoliation comes extraction, which helps remove impurities from the pores and eliminate bacteria that causes acne. In skin care school, you have the chance to learn about these impurities, the issues they cause, and how to remove them.

Trim Hunger Cut-A-Thon

September is National Hunger Action Month.  This is the time to realize that almost half of Brevard County’s 73,000 students participate in the free & reduced-price lunch program.  This lunch program is the key indicator of hunger and poverty in a geographic area.

Trim Hunger and The Salon Professional Academy in Melbourne Square Mall has declared “War on Hunger” and has partnered with The Children’s Hunger Project to help feed kids at risk of hunger.  Owner Kristen Kohl has outlined a program in which the public can help address the hunger problem.

This Sunday, September 27 from 12pm-6pm, the academy will be offering $10 haircuts to benefit The Children’s Hunger Project.  Donors will be invited to share a “selfie” on social media with their “orange thumbie” while showing their charitable act for hunger awareness. All proceeds for Trim Hunger and The Salon Professional Academy’s “War on Hunger” will go directly to food for elementary school age kids supported by The Children’s Hunger Project.

About Trim Hunger

In recognition of Hunger Awareness Month, Redken 5th Avenue NYC in collaboration with The Salon Professional Academy, will host the Trim Hunger™ Cut-A-Thon at the Redken Exchange in NYC on Thursday, September 10th from 10am– 3:30 pm to benefit City Harvest, a food rescue organization dedicated to helping feed the nearly 1.4 million New Yorkers facing hunger.

Top Redken stylists will be giving haircuts, blowouts and braids for a minimum donation of $25. Much like the way color specific ribbons are worn in support of causes, painting your thumbnail has taken on the same social identity. Essie, also a sponsor of the event, will be offering “orange thumbie” manicures in their Trim Hunger “Roarrrrange” shade as a symbol of support in the fight against hunger.

TSPA Trim Hunger Sept 27

Trim Hunger is the most recent non-profit endeavor of Redken stylist Josif Wittnik, owner of Salon CTI and Day Spa and The Salon Professional Academy in Appleton, WI. Following a local project to help feed families in need in his community, Josif developed Trim Hunger to raise awareness for the cause and feed the hungry on a national level.

“It costs City Harvest just 25 cents to rescue and deliver one pound of food in New York City, and with more than 2.6 million New Yorkers struggling to afford food for themselves and their families, a little bit goes a long way,” says Leslie Marino, General Manager, Redken US. “Redken’s Trim Hunger Cut-A-Thon will bring together both stylists and members of the community to help make an immediate impact on the fight against hunger in New York City.”

NYC, Amazing Hair, & Beautiful Ninjas

2014 NSC WinnersNew York City played host to a once-in-a-lifetime event for the winners of the 2014 TSPA National Student Competition. In addition to a trip to NYC, the students and their sponsoring educators were treated to one-on-one training with REDKEN Artistic Director Chris Baran.

The training extended well beyond the classroom – all the way to the set of a professional photo shoot. The students worked hands-on behind the scenes with the models, photographer, and camera crew. The theme of the fantasy shoot was “ninja glamour” complete with elaborate wardrobe, fabulous makeup, and lots of amazing hair. This experience exposed students to just how limitless a career in the cosmetology field can be; with multiple avenues to pursue with the training they are receiving at TSPA. Continue reading
