Paul Mitchell Cosmetology Schools Dean Winn Claybaugh has been very outspoken and passionate in challenging anyone and everyone to quit smoking. “I take very seriously my role as a leader and mentor,” Winn says. “I want to encourage everyone in my circle of influence to love and care for yourselves enough to overcome this nasty habit. In the last week of visiting three Paul Mitchell Schools, I can name over ten people who all committed to me that they would quit smoking, including a Paul Mitchell school owner.”

David Lowry from Paul Mitchell The School – Houston kicked the habit so he could be a model at Paul Mitchell’s Gathering. “I wanted to represent beauty and not smell like an ashtray,” he said. School Owner Rosie Matos added, “Before Gathering, Winn was coming to visit our school. We told our Future Professionals that smoking was a real turnoff for him and encouraged them to not even smell like smoke when they hugged him. David took on the challenge then and decided not to smoke.”

David’s efforts inspired his school’s admissions assistant Ashley Womack to quit. “ I am now addicted to sunflower seeds, but that won’t make me ugly and kill me!,” Ashley reports. “I feel amazing and have more money, better skin, a better body, and I did the Congo with the Future Professionals as we do every Friday and was not out of breath!”

Future Professional Jeffrey Crowder of Imagine – A Paul Mitchell Partner School in Little Rock, Arkansas, kicked his ten-year habit when he started school. ”I was beginning a new chapter of my life and I wanted to start smoke free,” Jeffrey says. “I was tired of the smell, the expense, and the inconvenience. I have completely quit, I feel healthier, and I don’t smell like smoke any more!”

Jim Salerno, co-owner of Paul Mitchell The School – Chicago, smoked a pack and a half to two packs a day for 34 years before laser treatments helped him quit. “The technician took me into a spa-type room, seated me on a reclining chair, and applied laser light to my temples, forehead, nose, and wrists,” Jim recalls. “Still doubtful that this treatment was going to work, I left the office, got into my car, looked at the pack of cigarettes on the seat next to me, and crumpled it in half. It has been two and a half years since my treatment and I am still smoke free.”

Paul Mitchell CEO and Chairman John Paul DeJoria adds, “It's not that we have the right to tell people what to do with their own body. It’s that we have the right to love them and care for them enough to want people to live a healthy life.”
