Congratulations to Tyra Peterson, for achieving the highest level ever achieved by a cosmetology student at The Salon Professional Academy! She has hit Level 4 a total of 7 times, also known as Level 4, 6X Honors That means Tyra has met her jump goal every month since she first set foot in the Student Salon Training Area! No other cosmetology student has ever done that! The previous record was Level 4, 4X Honors, which is also a major achievement accomplished by only 1 student. What are levels and jumping? In the salon and spa industry, many businesses use a level system which distinguishes higher-level stylists/service providers. You reach the higher levels based on metrics like the number of haircuts, colors, other chemical treatments, add-on services, and a long list of additional requirements. It’s definitely not easy to do. You need the technical skills, personal skills, communication skills, and marketing skills. Tyra has accomplished all of these and more, and we are very proud to have her as a student at TSPA Fargo! She will definitely have a successful career in the beauty industry!
