TNN Beauty Academy Education Program is a “Cut Above the Rest”


[October 1, 2019, San Diego, CA] San Diego-based TNN Beauty Academy has launched a new statewide training and apprenticeship program to provide aspiring beauty professionals with classroom instruction, experiential learning, and on-the-job training that will prepare them for successful careers in the salon industry as barbers, cosmetologists or permanent makeup artists.


Demand is growing for beauty industry professionals. According to the California Employment Development Department (EDD), by 2020 there is expected to be a 14.2 percent growth in the number of jobs.  


TNN Academy offers a variety of EDD-approved programs that prepare students to apply for California State Board of Barbering and Cosmetology licenses that are required to cut and style hair, apply makeup or work as cosmetologists.


Programs require between 39 to 3200 hours to complete and include ”earn as you learn” apprenticeships and on-the-job training in barber shops and salons under the supervision of a state-licensed trainer to help students become salon-ready workers.


Students and businesses are eligible to apply for state, federal, or employer programs that fund EDD approved career transition training.


The new TNN venture was created by beauty business veteran Tanya Nguyen, a trailblazer who has worked in the industry since 1981 and currently owns salons in Escondido and Del Mar and operates 15 training centers throughout California.


When Nguyen identified a gap in preparing people for salon-industry careers, she decided to establish the TNN Beauty Academy. “There is a need for this program because there are many students who cannot afford to go to school full time without working. This program gives them the opportunity to meet both needs: get an education, while they are earning a living. They are also able to build up a clientele by the time they get their license. The difference between the TNN Academy program and other beauty school programs is that in this program, students can acquire new skills and practice appropriate salon behaviors that will enable them to earn more income than minimum wage,” says Nguyen.


Nguyen came to the United States as a refugee in 1975, not speaking any English. Because of the struggles and challenges she experienced through her decades in the beauty industry, she knows how important it is to have someone to provide mentorship, guidance, encouragement and cultivate talent both in school and on the job.


In addition to schooling, TNN Academy encourages their students to give back to the community by providing no-charge services to the homeless and other people in need. TNN is also partnering with CHI Haircare, founded in 1986 by Farouk Shami, to provide hair artists and clients with a safer workplace environment and advanced knowledge through “Environment, Education, & Innovation.”
