Paul Mitchell The School Modesto

Meet some of the team members who make Paul Mitchell The School Modesto so special.

Hooman Safavi


Hooman Safavi has been a business owner for 26 years. He worked primarily in the wholesale business having owned chains of stores. Early in his career, he invested with a construction company that moved more than 6.1 million cubic feet of dirt, and he owned the Northern California distributorship for Bon Apetit, a company that manufactures pre-wrapped pastries. All of those businesses averaged an impressive annual growth. Fluent in both English and Farsi, Hooman earned an associate degree in science from Vincennes Indiana College and a bachelor’s degree in business from Indiana University. With his broad background as a business owner, he specializes in distribution, retail, and the financial aspects of business. Basically, all businesses function in the same blueprint, he says. The product may vary, but the financial, growth and infrastructure aspects remain the same. Hooman attributes his success as a business owner to an understanding of human skills. I grew up practicing martial arts and living on three different continents (Asia, Europe, and America), he says. Having a different cultural background as well as the discipline and philosophy of martial arts gave me a strong understanding of social skills. I know how to let people contribute to the operation and the business. I interact with staff management, bringing all the energy to one point and letting everyone grow in a clear and open environment. .

Rosemary Safavi


Rosemary Safavi earned her cosmetology license and cosmetology instructor licenses after attending Lyle's College of Beauty in Fresno, California. She taught at Lyle's for four years (1979-1982), instructing up to 70 students in a single freshman class. Within a year and a half, she was promoted to Regional Director of five schools and helped write the curriculum for the first school in the San Joaquin Valley to feature an esthetics program.

In 2001 she joined John Paul Mitchell Systems as a Regional Color Coordinator, responsible for increasing sales by opening new color accounts and expanding the color business of existing accounts. She completed her Paul Mitchell duties, holding the title as Vice President of Latin America where she assisted in building strong educational, sales support teams.

Living beautifully to Rosemary is being healthy, family time, and yoga .
