Paul Mitchell The School

Completely renovated and modernized, Paul Mitchell Beauty School Portland is a state-of-the-art facility. Located in a former bank in the heart of historic Hotel Row, our 18,000-square-foot campus offers easy access to sightseeing, shopping, and all nine of Portland’s downtown districts, such as the Pearl District’s trendy galleries and Hawthorne’s hippie-radical crowd. Our prime location gives our Future Professionals endless activities when they aren’t busy learning.  We are one of the top beauty schools in Oregon!

Pedestrian-friendly Portland has been named the “#1 City for Biking to Work,” one of the world’s top travel destinations and one of America’s “Top 25 Fittest Cities.” Moderate temperatures and beautiful terrain make Portland an outdoor dream. With miles of recreational trails, lakes, and parks, plus Mount Hood’s nearby ski resorts, Portland is a mecca for runners, cyclists, climbers, skiers, and snowboarders alike.

Come join us in the City of Roses and launch your new career!
