This week we were blessed with the opportunity to listen to and learn from a beauty industry icon. On Tuesday, we were grateful to host Ultimate Face Co-Founder and Good Will Ambassador for John Paul Mitchell Systems, Gary Spellman. With over 25 years in the professional beauty industry, Gary has been an asset to creating the culture of positivity and giving back that is John Paul Mitchell Systems. During our time with Gary, we learned about JP’s Peace Love & Happiness Foundation, which exists to help neglected children as well as First Responders and their families after injury or death in the line of duty. We were delighted with comical stories of meeting John Paul DeJoria and other icons throughout his career in the industry. Between endless FUNraising, having an anti-poaching Coast Guard Cutter, and planting trees for every Tea Tree purchase, there’s not many companies who can say they give back to the world as much as John Paul Mitchell Systems. We were taught the value of purpose, relationships, and accountability in our personal lives and careers. Through these stories of doing good, Gary has confirmed why we all love what we do here at Paul Mitchell the School.
