I ONCE heard that hairdressers go to work every single day with the intention of having fun. that’s the culture I want to be part of!

 

I'm the Dean, co-founder and co-owner of Paul Mitchell Schools. I formerly served as National Motivational Expert for Paul Mitchell. 

From the very beginning at Paul Mitchell Schools, education was a big part of the vision. Soon, the company had assembled an A-team of outstanding stylists and educators, including me!

I've been aiming to inspire audiences across America, spreading a philosophy of business that has helped an entire generation of beauty professionals find success—and has profoundly shaped the Paul Mitchell Schools culture.

 
 
Everything finally came together in 2000 when John Paul DeJoria, Angus Mitchell—by that time co-owner of the company that bears his late father’s name—and I decided to create the first Paul Mitchell School.

From the very beginning, offering a quality, life-changing education was a big part of our vision. The BE NICE philosophy has profoundly shaped the Paul Mitchell Schools culture and helped hundreds of thousands of graduates find success in business and in life.

Today, Paul Mitchell Schools is over 115 locations strong—and growing.
