Brennan's Career tips

Brennan Claybaugh, Director of Education

Paul Mitchell Schools and Paul Mitchell Advanced Academy

  • Do as much as you can, and try everything—haircutting, hair coloring, up-styling, makeup, nail artistry, barbering, photo shoots, fashion shows, theatre and more.
  • Discover what motivates you. Is it being with people? Is it making people look good and feel good? Is it learning the “how” and the “why” of everything? Identify your motivation—and use it to be your best.
  • Presentation is everything, and that presentation begins with you. Your actions, words and look promote you.
  • For clean hair, follow these instructions: lather, rinse, repeat. For a long and successful career, follow these instructions: study, practice, repeat. Repetition is the mother of all skill. Learning takes action, and what you learn and accomplish is your responsibility.
