As our co-founder John Paul DeJoria has famously said, "Success Unshared is Failure." That's why our Future Professionals at Paul Mitchell The School San Diego are proud and excited to give back through local events and our annual three-month FUNraising campaigns. In fact, since 2004, Paul Mitchell Schools throughout the country have raised more than $13.3 million for charities in their communities and around the world.
Embracing the “Be Nice (or Else!)” philosophy and philanthropic culture of Paul Mitchell Schools, our students and staff give back in any way they can. One annual event celebrated across the cosmetology school network is called Free Hugs Day. It is during this day that Future Professionals spread their positivity and compassion to the local community, dishing out free hugs to any and all willing individuals. Free Hugs Day has become so popular, that in 2011 our Future Professionals even made the local news!
