Many people are visual learners; many learn best hands-on. Yet many schools—even beauty schools—teach mostly out of books. Not us! Our unique multifaceted approach (based on a learning philosophy created by a Harvard professor) gets students up and out of their chairs and working hands-on from the first day of class. We use a wealth of interactive, multimedia, video, and live demos and lectures—even music—to address the full range of learning styles in every lesson. That way we engage all of our students so you learn more, and have more fun.
Our teachers—we call them Learning Leaders—are experienced stylists and passionate educators who want you to succeed. Whether you're giving your first haircut or beauty treatment, building your clientele, or preparing for the state board examination, our Learning Leaders are here to guide you every step of the way as you develop your unique style as an artist.
There's nothing quite as inspiring and motivating for our students as attending events like Caper, Beacon, and NAHA. By watching industry leaders in action (Our Mentors and Guest Artists) and networking with your peers and future employers, the knowledge you gain in the classroom and in the student salon instantly comes to life.
The beauty industry—and the technology that supports it—is growing. That's why we connect our students to the Paul Mitchell Schools online portal and proprietary mobile apps, and provide state-of-the-art tools from our Paul Mitchell line which has been leading the industry for more than 30 years.
