Established in 2005, Paul Mitchell Beauty School Birmingham is one of the first Paul Mitchell Schools in the country. We occupy an industrial space in the Centre of Riverchase Shopping Center. Our cosmetology school students are surrounded by glitz and glamour, as the high-end stores nearby provide students with both inspiration and experience. Our convenient location, along with our talented Future Professionals, are two reasons why so many guests visit our cosmetology school to feel beautiful and pampered.
Our students come in with a passion for cosmetology that flourishes under the instruction of our caring staff and Learning Leaders. Natural-born talents are transformed into career-producing skills, thanks to the massive industry experience of our teachers (totaling over 280 years combined). Our modern, 10,000-square-foot cosmetology school is what our students call home for the duration of their program, all in the pursuit of a successful career.
Our cosmetology school is all about changing lives and making lifelong dreams come true. Most of our Future Professionals come from Pell City, Tuscaloosa, Hoover, Birmingham, Alabaster, Jasper, and Chelsea, but there is room for anyone from anywhere who is passionate about and driven to succeed in the beauty industry.
