Taylor recently got to see one of her The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA), Altoona friends while she was out and about at salons. She got to stop and talk to Preston Mallow for a while and see how he’s doing at his new job at Master Cuts in Altoona, PA. Preston is a 2015 TSPA grad and has never been happier to be in a salon doing what he loves.
Preston said he chose Master Cuts because ” it kinda just fell into my lap I was on my way to apply at another salon and saw that they were hiring and stopped in and by fate they called me the next day and the rest is history.”
Preston’s future plans include going back to TSPA for his educator’s degree, working his way up in the Regis Corporation, and then eventually owning his own salon.
Preston’s favorite teacher when he was in school was Miss Jen. She was his favorite because she was his part-time coach and pushed him and helped him to achieve his goal of level jumping, and never let him quit.
Preston’s role model is Tabatha Coffey because He always wanted to do hair but she gave him the inspiration to keep moving forward because her outlook on life is positive and motivating.
How Did TSPA Altoona Help Preston?
“They laid down the foundation of what I needed to build off of and gave me a confidence I didn’t know I had.”
Preston would like to Thank the TSPA team for incorporating a part-time program when he was going there so he could work and achieve his dreams as a cosmetologist at the same time!
