After careful consideration, the School’s ownership group has regretfully decided to close the school in Santa Barbara. Our last day will be September 30, 2016. The school will no longer be enrolling new students. We are very distraught over how it affects the Staff and the Future Professionals. Our number one priority is completing our future professionals in a timely manner. Our schools in Sherman Oaks, Pasadena, Costa Mesa, San Diego, Fresno and Temecula will accommodate any Future Professionals wishing to transfer. We have greatly enjoyed being a part of the Santa Barbara community and we wish all of our learning leaders and future professionals much success as we say goodbye to our campus.

Paul Mitchell the School
Santa Barbara

At Paul Mitchell Beauty School Santa Barbara, we take pride in our beauty school and our successful graduates. Once a Future Professional joins our family, they remain part of our family long after graduation.

Our gorgeous beauty school is in a two-story standalone building offering 15,000-square-feet of education and salon space. We’re located in the heart of Downtown Santa Barbara in the Santa Barbara District, near the upscale Paseo Nuevo Mall. Our prime location and talented Future Professionals keep people coming back to our salon floor, while our expert staff keeps students enrolling in our cosmetology classes.
