Paul Mitchell The School
San Jose

Our 23,000-square-foot campus is located in downtown San Jose’s CityView Plaza, a popular open-air destination featuring retail outlets, assorted restaurants, easy access to public transportation, and nearby entertainment venues like Santana Row, the picturesque, ten-block, “town within a town” filled with eateries, shops, and high-end retailers. 

NEW!  Check out our enhanced and improved makeup curriculum built into our Cosmetology and Esthetics programs.

Located on the southern edge of San Francisco Bay, San Jose is an easy day trip to some of California’s top destinations, from San Francisco and Monterey Bay to Napa Valley and Yosemite National Park. There’s also plenty to enjoy in San Jose itself, including a thriving arts community, year-round festivals, a lively college scene, and CosmoProf’s annual Spring Style Show, one of the biggest hair shows nationwide. The Center for Performing Arts, Civic Auditorium, and a number of smaller theaters offer world-class music and events. You can take in an outdoor concert at Plaza de César Chávez or St. James Park, spend the day at the Raging Waters water park, or follow Guadalupe River Park’s jogging and biking trails directly to the bay.

The unique combination of big-city amenities and small-town charm, plus excellent weather and outstanding educational opportunities, make San Jose a great place to live, learn, and work.

Paul Mitchell The School San Jose is waiting to welcome you!
