Paul Mitchell Schools Raise $2.5 Million for Charity

Glittering with gorgeous gowns and glamorous hairdos, the legendary Beverly Hilton, home of the Golden Globe Awards, rolled out the red carpet for the Paul Mitchell Schools' 9th annual FUNraising Gala. Each year, students and staff from the nationwide network's 100 cosmetology schools spend three months raising money for selected charities. Raising $5-10 at a time with grassroots activities like cut-a-thons, hair shows, car washes, and casual days, the schools topped the $2.5 million mark this year, bringing their nine-year total to more than $8.5 million.

Paul Mitchell Schools Announce Plans for 9/11 Tribute Events

Each year since the tragic attacks on September 11, 2001, Paul Mitchell Schools have held a variety of events in remembrance of the precious lives lost that day. During the week of September 7–13, 2014, many schools will invite police, firefighters, military, and first responders to stop by for free services or other special events. Others will host fundraising events for local police, firefighters, their widows and orphans funds, and even rescue dogs. Every school will hold a special in-school tribute or memorial that day, with students and staff sharing stories of how the events of September 11 helped them improve their lives or become closer to their families.
