What people say?

ProsperU has been a great addition to our academy. Our students feel more confident evolving from students to salon professionals. The support from the ProsperU team is outstanding and prompt. I would recommend to anyone growing future industry rockstars.

Jordan Mahrer, TSPA Maplewood

Having purchased a cosmetology school I set out to visit with local salon owners/managers to find out just what they were looking for in a newly graduated student and future employee. I would say that 95% of them made the comment that they wanted to see the graduates more prepared for the business portion of the industry. They wanted to see these graduates understand the importance of goal setting, retailing, rebooking and referrals. These owners/managers are so busy with the day to day operations of the salon they don’t have the time to train new employees on how to retail, rebook and use social media to get the referrals to build their clientele and business quickly and efficiently.
Prosper U provides a fun and interesting way to do all these things without the students feeling like they are “SELLING” something.

The exciting part to all of this is the excitement my staff has going into teaching the system. They are excited because they have seen what the students gain from learning the important skills taught through Prosper U. Staff members actually fight over who gets to teach Prosper U to the students. The staff members see how much of an advantage the students who have trained with Prosper U have compared to other students who have not had the same type of training. The educators are eager to share those benefits to the students to help them become more successful.

Prosper U makes learning the business end of the salon industry fun and exciting. Students can actually see the progress they make each week, month all the way through to graduation and beyond. When students can see results they are more likely to be engaged.

Thank you to the whole Prosper U team for developing such an awesome system.

Wendy B., The Salon Professional Academy Rapid City

I absolutely love the Prosper U program! I have found that it provides a positive and motivating experience to the students. It makes the business side of the beauty and wellness industry easier to understand, which can be understandably overwhelming. Being able to work the numbers for success. The importance of the consultation and how to talk to your guests to get accurate information to be able to perform the best service possible. I find that my students are better able to understand what it takes to obtain new clients and keep them coming back. Their rebooking numbers and retail sales steadily increase because they use the program to the best of their abilities.
Prosper U has become one of my favorite classes to teach because I can see the process work in real time. Being able to share my passion for the industry combined with the passion of the Prosper U team, instils a growing passion for the industry in my students. I am excited to see all of the new things this program continues to offer!

Prosper U has inspired me to become a great professional in this industry. Also, it has shown me how much I can achieve in the future with this career.

Crystal, Metro Beauty Academy Student

I like how Prosper U brings our class together. I feel like it’s super eye opening. I never realized how important a positive attitude is in this business and just in life in general. I really like getting a sneak peek into the business and I definitely feel more prepared because of Prosper U.

Julia, Metro Beauty Academy Student

Prosper U has really inspired me to look at the beauty industry differently. It’s not just about making people pretty. It’s about giving them legendary customer service and making people feel great about themselves. There are a lot of great quotes and examples in the Prosper U books that help me apply things to real life situations.

Cena, Metro Beauty Academy Student

I think Prosper U is a great thing to have. It really helps you learn how to be an ideal cosmetologist. It teaches you what qualities you should have in order to go far in this industry.

Arianna, Avalon School of Beauty

When I think of my future career as a stylist, my skills and abilities to create great work doesn’t make me nervous — that aspect comes naturally to me. Plus, I know that I’m getting great training and that practice makes perfect. However, one thing that always caused hesitation is my lack of confidence when it comes to the business side of the industry — how to set my prices, how to create a plan for financial success, how to network, how to ensure clients will return to me, etc. Being a truly successful stylist is about more than just doing good hair, so the Prosper U program is such an important tool. I know when I’m ready to graduate from Metro, I’ll be more prepared than the average cosmetology graduate because of the extra training I’m receiving from Prosper U.

Sam, Metro Beauty Academy Student

Prosper U has been a wonderful addition for our student body and educators. The students find the tracker, journal and videos easy to use and follow along. The educators find the scripting, lesson plans, teacher training videos and support to be a wonderful educational program to present to the students. Prosper U helps make the learning fun and engaging for all. It has helped our educators reach their goals, which in turn has helped the students reach theirs! We recommend Prosper U to any academy that wants to provide the tools for success so they can produce salon leaders!

Peggy Grenauer, The Salon Professional Academy – Buffalo

As the salon manager of Duncan Brothers Salon Quail Springs, I have the opportunity to work with brand new hair stylists. My goal is to help them grow an amazing clientele, grow their product sales, learn salon professionalism, build layering relationships, and have fun doing it. The stylists who have come from our school, the Academy of Hair Design, already have such an understanding of what to do. They know how to give a proper consultation, recommend the products clients need, and what to expect in the salon because of the Prosper U business training program. Prosper U not only gives actual percentages and solid numbers of where a stylist will see the most income, but it also offers such wonderful encouragement throughout the program. I’m very grateful to utilize Prosper U at our academy and as a tool to keep growing our staff into all they can be! I would highly recommend Prosper U to anyone in the hair industry.

Mary McClure, Duncan Brothers Salon

The Prosper U program developed by Eric Fisher is simply the best business curriculum for cosmetology schools that I have seen. With simple straight-forward style, not only does it give students a greater chance at career success but it helped us increase our profitability. I would highly recommend Prosper U to any cosmetology school owner.

Larry Curtis, Taylor Andrews Academy

When a person decides they are interested in the beauty industry the first thing that is thought of is coloring and cutting hair. This is a fun and artistic way of expression. However, an individual entertaining the idea of this industry overlooks a very important component. The business side. Introducing the Prosper U program to students will arm them with the fundamental tools needed it understand and become successful in this industry.

A few of the tools taught are:
-increase average service with clients
-expand client base
-prebook and follow up with existing clients
-ability to recommend appropriate products for client’s needs
-retain current clients

Prosper U has developed methods that are proven effective and useful to our students. This is why the Academy of Hair Design has chosen the Prosper U program as part of the curriculum for our students.

Joe Tarnacki, Academy of Hair Design

THE WORD IS OUT! Salons in our region are noticing a huge difference in our graduates and are continuously reaching out to us for more. Prosper U has been a great asset in helping bridge the gap between school and salon.

Garrett Shuler, Kenneth Shuler School of Cosmetology

We have seen our students connect, grow and achieve goals that were beyond our expectations. Prosper U has everything we were looking for in a business program and gives our students the tools they need to begin a successful career!!

Shelly Gitthens, Academy of Hair Design

I really loved Prosper U because it provided in depth ways to grow your career. Over all, Prosper U made me comfortable being on the floor and prepared me for the salon.
