Phagans Salon Academy Tigard is now
Summit Salon Academy Portland
Why change the name?
For more than four decades, the Huffstutter Family has built a fiercely loyal following by combining outstanding performance with genuine, caring customer service. We’ve been growing, expanding our roots in Oregon, and continually improving the services we bring to the industry.
We want to make sure that the way we look and sound reflects the exceptional work of our teachers, and the remarkable experiences they create for our students every day. We’re excited, and we’re ready to show the rest of the world what our (clients, community, followers) already know: we’re dedicated to talented business (minded, focused) students, and to giving them the best experience possible.
We believe cosmetology schools are missing an essential focus on what we call the business language. Our partnership with The Summit Salon Business Center™ allows us to bring proven systems to empower our students to have the best chance to create a (lasting, successful, thriving, strong) career in the industry. Phagan’s Tigard worked hard to give great technical education – we can do both.
How are we committed?
Changing our name from Phagans Tigard to Summit Salon Academy Portland is our verbal commitment to the beauty community. We will teach the essential business language and techniques that bring success to the best-of-the-best in our industry – our students will not only know what to say but have a career path to follow.
No other school is offering this type of business education.
Why we know!
The Huffstutter family has collaborated with The Summit Salon Business Center for over 10 years. Shareholder Luke Huffstutter owns Annastasia Salon which utilizes the Summit Salon ™ performance-based systems to create (meaningful, substantial, impressive, balanced) careers for its employee’s. Additionally, Luke travels across the United States as a Summit Salon coach and facilitator teaching stylist how to take their income over the top and salon owners turn their failing salons into the powerhouse they can be. These deep connections will help us bring our students the best plan available in the industry today.
