At Paul Mitchell The School Jessup, we prepare our students—or as we call them, Future Professionals—for careers in the beauty industry as licensed cosmetologists.
Students are guided through our program's three levels—CORE, ADAPTIVE, and CREATIVE -- by our Learning Leaders. Students can take on new hair techniques, a variety of skills, and independence as they move through each stage of the cosmetology program.

CORE is a foundation course in hair cutting, color, texture, styling, skin and nails, and an introduction to our Paul Mitchell Schools culture. Future Professionals can learn cosmetology fundamentals in theory, and then practice them in the safe environment of the classroom. You can work on mannequin heads and receive the attention from a Learning Leader who can guide you every step of the way.
During the ADAPTIVE phase, the learning moves from the classroom onto the clinic floor classroom, where Future Professionals can practice the fundamental skills learned in Core. Adaptive-level students can work on live models in our student salon with the oversight and support of their Learning Leaders. You can work with professional products, and learn how to conduct client consultations and create extraordinary guest-service experiences.
Future Professionals can expand their skills and are introduced to several creative techniques during the CREATIVE phase. At the Creative level, students can prepare to become salon-ready by working more independently at a pace and in conditions that are similar to those in a salon. You can also develop your speed and build a resume and portfolio. Students can also be prepared to sit for the state board exam.
PHASE TWO clinic classroom is an optional course of intensive study within the Cosmetology program for those Future Professionals who want to be challenged to their highest level of performance. Phase Two clinic classroom students receive advanced training and work in conditions that mimic salon reality. By planning, managing and setting team goals, and going that extra mile, you'll learn to create your own success.
One of the most exciting days for our Future Professionals is the day they get to unwrap their very own professional kit. It's packed with all the essentials—hot styling tools, mannequin heads, shears, scissors and clips, and much more—so you're ready to succeed in school and launch your dream career.
When you have technology and resources at your fingertips, you can be more successful in school and in your career. That's why Future Professionals at Hair Expressions Academy, A Paul Mitchell Partner School use iPads during their courses, giving them on-the-go access to schoolwork, career advice from industry leaders, Paul Mitchell cutting and coloring apps, and much more.
