Please consider this a GLOWING REVIEW for your Academy as a whole and for Alyssa in particular! I'm a part-time resident of Western Michigan and called one day, desperate for a haircut, and was given an appointment that same day. Wonderful! I was put with Alyssa, who has a marvelous personality, is easy to talk to, smiles and laughs naturally, and is genuinely interested in giving the very best service. Again, Wonderful! She gave me one of, if not, the best haircut I've ever had that day. I received lots of compliments on it (and naturally told my friends where I received the service!). Four weeks later, again, desperate for a haircut, I called again, got in right away, with the marvelous Alyssa, who again gave me the best haircut ever! She even explained the mystery of "bangs that look wispy" and mine are well on their way! So--awesome place, fantastic instructors, and Alyssa, when you graduate, PLEASE stay in the Holland/Grand Haven area--I'll follow you! Thank you again! Jane Riddle

Honestly I’m not very happy with my experience there. It didn’t seem professional at all. Did not like how the instructor talked to me & didn’t get the results I wanted. I wanted a balayage and ended up with uneven highlights throughout my head.

I had a really great experience at the Academy. Michaela, a student, was very skilled, professional, and super kind. The instructors are also highly skilled and seem to have a great rapport with their students. It is a teaching program with a lot of instructor oversight, so if you're not willing to spend at least an hour in the chair (despite the crazy affordable services), the Academy is maybe not the place for you. As for me, I don't mind being pampered for a while; it's a rare treat in my world. I will most definitely be returning here in the future!

I attended TSPA for school to be a cosmetologist for 11 months & I LOVED it! This school is truly amazing. The instructors are always there for you when you need help in anyway whether its personal or school related. I builded relationships with the other classmates and now I have some of my greatest friends all because of school!

Good for haircuts and such but not nails! Had a manicure and the polish came of before I left the parking lot! Would have went back but was on a tight schedule to get to s funeral out of state!

Kim Possible

I have been here a few times as has my daughter, and we always have a great experience. The instructors do an excellent job with the students!!!

I really wanted to like this place. The facility is really clean, sleek and modern. I walked in feeling good because it looked just like a professional salon. Everyone was very friendly. The girl who cut my hair was very sweet, but wore her nerves all over her face. She didn't appear confident in her abilities, and a conversation with her instructor about not knowing how to point cut highlighted that. I came in looking for a very simple long layered bob with long side swept bangs. I had about 4 inches cut off and was fine with that because it waa still long enough to be able to wear a pony tail. What I appreciate about this place is that the instructor checks out the haircut to sign off on it, and it also seems that the students are encouraged to ask for help on techniques they may not have confidence in executing. Even with those checks in place, this ended up being the worst haircut I've ever had. I took a gamble by going to a student and I lost big time. When the student finished the cut she blow dried it and didn't shape it at all to show me the cute bob I was supposed to have. She just ran her finger through my hair while she blow dried it and it looked messy and the ends were flipped out. She also didn't cut the long bangs I had asked for. So she was about to grab her instructor to let her sign off on the cut, but I spoke up and asked about the bangs. She said she didn't know how to do them so she'd need her instructor to help. When she came over I showed the instructor the reference picture and said several times that I'd like to keep them long. Well I ended up with very very short pieces that I'm having trouble taming. After this I just wanted to get out of this place and go home to wet my hair down to see if I could style it into the sleek bob I'd been hoping for. Nope. One side of my hair is at least an inch to inch and a half longer than the other in the front. The ends of my hair are also jagged and some underneath pieces are longer than the others, but not in an intentional way. Just in a sloppy haircut way. I'm definitely not going back to get it fixed there, and I'm afraid to go elsewhere because I think I'd lose too much length if I have to cut it to even it out and fix the jagged ends. If you come here for a cut, definitely know it is a gamble. While the staff is friendly, just know you could end up with a student who might not be at the skill level you're hoping for.

This is a fantastic place for haircuts! I had my 4th haircut by the fabulous Hannah Z. yesterday, and without a doubt the BEST haircuts ever! The staff is fun, young and dedicated to doing their very best. The instructors are encouraging and talented teachers too. Hannah is graduating and will be a wonderful addition to any salon!

Melissa McCloskey

Best service! Great atmosphere ! Ladies in there are amazing!! Making me think of going to school there because of how nice the teachers are and the good work the students did!!

Jordan Taylor

I'm a Marine and I like my hair short and in a high and tight as much as possible. I went to the Academy on their first day open and have gone back every week since. Great staff and students. My haircut is perfect every time.

Beautiful salon! Extremely talented students and trustworthy instructors! You feel like you’re in a real high end salon, not a school! Great place to go for service!

Caroline Sonnichsen

HIGHLY RECOMMEND this salon and Morgan! I came to Salon Professional Academy to have a perm. The stylist rolled the perm correctly, keeping the hair wet, the rollers straight and tight! She did an awesome job. And guess what, only after did i find out i was her first live person perm! BIG SMILES. Not because i was her 1st but because IT IS VERY EVIDENT that this school is teaching the girls in a way they will be successful. The instructor gave the stylist space to do the rolling but she also checked in and gave input. VERY GREAT experience.I

Cassie Fransen

My daughter couldn't be happier with her cut and style! Her hair looks beautiful. Emma was so sweet and gentle. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Jules Fransen

Omg I loved this place I went here on a Wednesday and there wasn't hardly anythere I also made a appointment for a wash cut and style and the beautiful lady that did my hair (Emma H) was so nice and gentle I got around 7 inches off my hair and it looks fantastic I still can't stop looking at myself in the mirror she also curled it which just looks fabuolus !! The place is clean and all the lady's there smiled at me and we're just very helpful but heres the best part it was only 15$ for a wash cut and style yes 15$ I recommended this place all the way if I could rate it 10/5 I would !!! Thank you Emma ❤️


The staff here are very friendly and professional! The studio is very clean, and the students work very hard to get you what you want. I have heard rumors of a potential ghost in the pedicure room, but there has been no malicious activity. Overall, highly recommended!

Susan McDonald

I received a wonderful haircut from Nicole. She was professional and listened to what I wanted and was very informative about products she was using and why. I will certainly be back for more services in the future!

Loved attending school heresuch an inviting, friendly & family-like learning atmosphere.


I had my first experience today at this salon and I was very impressed. Instructors are great and seemed to be hands on and caring/interested in what the student and client have in the works or what they are trying to accomplish. I got highlights and really like them. Their online process to schedule your own appointment is pretty slick too. The only thing is, is if you would like to schedule more than one service, you have to schedule them individually or call. Which is not a problem for me...just an FYI for other people. It also lets you pick your “stylist.” Which I really liked but there are no pictures to go with names. I loved my person and I’m already planning my next appointment for a “pamper day” with my “person.” Also, when you schedule online, it gives you a “base” amount and minutes for this service. The minutes are pretty accurate. I was there for about three hours so plan accordingly and don’t be in a hurry. I was totally fine with my time because I planned on the whole 180 minutes but it was worth every second of my time today. I had great conversation and enjoyed my time just getting my hair done and possibly met my next stylist (whether it be temporary or long term). I would definitely recommend giving this place a shot! My experience was amazing!

My experience was great! I had a pedicure done and it was wonderful, my toes looked great and my feet were so soft. This school was super professional and the student Nicole was awesome ill go back to see her again. it was a super clean and professional set up and space, and the teachers were great they were always at hand and checking the students work very hands on which i loved it showed me they care about their students and giving them the best education to have a great Career. Very Impressed and I will be going back to use more of the services and the prices are fantastic.

Last week Friday I took my daughter to get her hair washed and styled, while getting her hair wash the stylist felt something in her hair. She very calmly asked me to come and look at her hair, to my surprise she had a tick. Long story short, one of the instructors ( mind you) acted very unprofessional and made it seem like my daughter had disease and was telling all the other stylist about it. I don’t plan on going back unless I really need to.

Amber Dryer

Went back and had a balayage done by a student and I loved it. I know it’s a school but she did a great job

Lisa Valkyrie

My haircut was incredible! The girl was so nice to me. I walked in feeling down i came out strutting and sassy! I was nervous since i had never gone there before but OMG. The shampooing was so relaxing. She gave me a full on scalp massage. I could have drifted off if i wasnt afraid of snorring. Lol.

I graduated from TSPA Holland in May of 2017. Their esthetics program is incredible! As students we were able to experience working in every position available in a salon/spa environment. This prepared us for the jobs we would potentially be working upon graduation from school. We worked with clients as estheticians, took on reception duties at the front desk, learned how to market ourselves as business women, and learned the importance of being team players. All of the lessons that you are taught here will prepare you to be an incredible employee, and coworker. The moment I stepped out of the TSPA doors on graduation day I felt confident and ready to take on the world. To this day the staff supports me with anything that I may need, and I am truly grateful for that. If it were not for TSPA I would not have been able to pursue my dream of becoming an esthetician, and owner of my own beauty studio. To the owners Scott & Rachel, Nikol the admissions coordinator, and all of the amazing instructors at TSPA, thank you for all that you do every single day. Your hard work does not go unnoticed. For those who are currently searching for a cosmetology/esthetics program look no further than TSPA Holland! <3

Sorry to say I have to change my review. I got a terrible haircut here last week and I'm really upset. She was going to take off an inch and ended up taking off at least 4 inches. The first instructor, Heather, gave her instructions and was really nice about everything like she always is, but then the other instructor took over and didn't listen to the plan or give much feedback. She kept coming back and asking the woman cutting my hair why she was cutting at certain spots because it obviously wasn't right. Eventually I think she gave up because my haircut is soooo crooked. One side is like an inch longer than the other. It looks like I did it myself. I'm really disappointed that after so many good experiences, I had a terrible one. It's going to take like a year to grow it all back and I'm really sad about this.

Had a great experience here with my daughter the first time I brought her here. Then I went somewhere else because we didn't think they did walk-ins and what a mistake, the girl argued with us and wouldn't do what she wanted at all and was so rude and kept telling me what she thought would look right instead of what my daughter wanted the cut to be. So we ended up back here so they could fix it and she got exactly what she wanted. Lesson learned, we're coming here from now on. They actually listen.

Great experience. Everyone was very nice and professional. I had a great facial from Cynthia.
