Eddie

Barber Specialist

Why did you choose the Barbering Industry and Education?

When I was growing up, my mom didn't want to take me to a barber shop so I found a pair of clippers and I started doing my own hair. I've been a barber shop owner for many years and I found my passion for educating when I was teaching product knowledge. I love building confidence in people and seeing them succeed.

What are your favorite Paul Mitchell Products?

I love our Mitch Products! They are perfect for every haircut and every style any guest has because they come in a variety of hold and finishes.

What do you believe makes an excellent Guest Experience and what advice do you have to offer?

I think an excellent guest experience is when a guest leaves feeling like a different person, when they walk out better than when they came in. They have more confidence and more swagger because of the experience they had. The best advice I can offer is to keep pushing, success doesn't happen overnight. You must never give up, and always remember that you have a purpose in this life.

Sean

Barber Specialist

Why did you choose the Barbering Industry and Education?

I was an artist for many years and was able to transfer that knowledge and passion into a Barbering career. I found my passion for education at trade shows and classes and I realized that I wanted to share my knowledge. I've been a Platform Artist with Andis Clipper Company for many years and I love bringing that education into the classroom.

What are your favorite Paul Mitchell Products?

I love the Mitch Matterial, it offers an extreme hold without flaking, so it's great for spiking and shaping. Another cool feature is that it's water soluable which makes it really easy to remove from the hair.

What do you believe makes an excellent Guest Experience and what advice do you have to offer?

I believe that an excellent guest experince happens when you offer the best that you have to give and the guest leaves completely satisfied, knowing that you did your best. The best advice I can give is never look at what you're doing as a job, approach it as a career that you will enjoy for life.

Matthew Roy

Theory Specialist

Why did you choose the Cosmetology Industry and Education?

I've always loved hair, I would style my mother's hair with bows and scrunchies when I was growing up. Education has always been a passion of mine and I love being able to give back everything I've learned.

What are your favorite Paul Mitchell Products?

My go to for styling is Fast Form, it speeds up drying time and can be cocktailed with other products. My Neuro Dry is my favorite tool because of the incredible technology and power.

What do you believe makes an excellent Guest Experience and what advice do you have to offer?

I believe going above and beyond with every guest ensures that they feel beautiful inside and out. My advice comes from industry legend Vidal Sasson, "The only time Success comes before Work, is in the dictionary."

Jenny

Core Specialist | Makeup Specialist | Nail Specialist

Why did you choose the Cosmetology Industry and Education?

I used to do makeovers on my friends when I sold Mary Kay and I fell in love with product education and I knew I wanted to become a makeup artist. I was a Core Mentor when I went to cosmetology school and that's where I found my passion for teaching. Seeing that lightbulb go off when Future Professionals have that "aha" moment is what makes me so grateful that I have the career that I do.

What are your favorite Paul Mitchell Products?

My miracle product is Super Strong Liquid Treatment because it literally rebuilds split ends! I also love the Awapuhi Wild Ginger Hydrocream Whip. It's moisturizing and can be used for blowdrying or for scrunching my curls, and it smells incredible.

What do you believe makes an excellent Guest Experience and what advice do you have to offer?

Making a connection with your guest by finding something in common and then finding solutions to their hair challenges. My advice is to remove "I can't" from your vocabulary. If a zillion cells can come together to create something as wonderful as you, you can do anything!

Steven

Worksheet Specialist | Theory Specialist | Final Phase Specialist

Why did you choose the Cosmetology Industry and Education?

My mother owned a salon when I was growing up and I always loved being there. I've been in the industry for over 25 years and I had an interview as a platform artist and she offered me a job teaching, and I've never looked back.

What are your favorite Paul Mitchell Products?

I love any of the leave-in sprays, like our new Tea Tree Lavender Mint Conditioning Leave-in Spray. These products help to repair your hair and maintain your color investment after a service. The Neuro Style Iron is my go to tool for events, it can do it all!

What do you believe makes an excellent Guest Experience and what advice do you have to offer?

Listen to what your guest wants, it could be very different from what you're used do, and deliver on that. The advice that I can pass on is that if you do to others, the wrong that was done to you, you've learned nothing and your pain has been wasted.

Kelly

Education Leader

Why did you choose the Cosmetology Industry and Education?

It has always been a passion of mine, I attended cosmetology school in High School and I have 30 years of experience in the industry. Through the years, I discovered that it was my passion to share knowledge within this incredible industry. I taught for many years and now I lead the education for our school.

What are your favorite Paul Mitchell Products?

My favorite product is the Awapuhi Wild Ginger Texturizing Sea Spray. It's a sea salt spray that adds texture to the hair so you can have sexy beachy waves. I can't live without any of the Paul Mitchell Pro Tools, I love them all!

What do you believe makes an excellent Guest Experience and what advice do you have to offer?

It's being present throughout the entire service and going that extra mile to make your guest feel like they are the only thing that matters in that moment. I would advise everyone to Always keep an open mind, and to Never stop learning!

Matthew

Phase 2 Specialist | Cutting Specialist | Color Specialist

Why did you choose the Cosmetology Industry and Education?

The reason why I chose the Cosmetology industry in general was because I feel as if what a person looks like on the outside has a direct reflection of how you can make them feel on the inside. When you give someone the confidence to look in the mirror and love what they see it has the power to change what they feel on the inside. It's something I've always been around and involved in, from high school musicals, to doing hair for our glee club and for friends during prom and homecoming season!!!

What are your favorite Paul Mitchell Products?

Wow, we have so many Paul Mitchell products that it's hard to choose just one but I do have a few personal favorites, for our short haired guests "Spray Wax®" is an absolute must, for myself our "Tea Tree Anti Thinning®" line is a hands down "10" in my book and I love our Neuro® Unclipped 3-in-1 Styling Wand!!!

What do you believe makes an excellent Guest Experience and what advice do you have to offer?

I think that what makes an excellent Guest Experience and the advice that I have to offer is this, "every guest that sits in your chair is another opportunity to create life change, wether it's for the half hour - two hours they sit in your chair or if it it's a life long impression you get to make on them". A hairdresser is a special person in many people's lives. We get to give a "baby's first haircut, we get to style their hair for their ballet recital, we get to make them feel special for homecoming, prom and then their wedding day, we might get the opportunity to share styling their hair for vow renewals and possibly even making them look beautiful and as they once did while family and friends are celebrating the life of a passed on loved one". As a hairdresser we are one of the few people that that take it above and beyond a Guest Experience but share in the lifelong impressions!!!
