Paul Mitchell the School

Paul Mitchell Beauty School Schenectady is located right in the heart of downtown Schenectady. Our 18,000-square-foot beauty school reflects the look and feel of the historic neighborhood. Right next door is the Stockade, New York's first historic district, with its pre-Revolutionary War houses and churches, Village Square, Riverside Park, art shows, races, and river fests. Across the street is Proctor’s Theater, built in 1926 as a vaudeville-movie theater. This refurbished gem now showcases Broadway musicals, international ballets, current and classic movies, concerts, and plays—plenty of inspiration for our Future Professionals!

In addition to downtown events, attractions, and venues, Schenectady offers easy access to upstate New York, with its quaint friendly villages, forests, lakes, rivers, and streams. In just a few minutes, you can be in nearby Albany or Saratoga, with its annual Tulip Fest, concert series, and performing arts center.

Our Schenectady campus is just a short drive or train trip to the major attractions in New York City, Boston, Connecticut, Vermont, and the Great Lakes, making “The Electric City” the perfect place to grow as an artist and launch your dream career!
