With all the news about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), many are asking
questions about visiting a public space like a school.
At Paul Mitchell Schools, the health, safety, and well-being of students,
team members, service guests, and community are among our highest
priorities. We continue to monitor state, local, national, and industry
guidelines regarding COVID-19 and are taking proactive measures as needed.
Our schools and our entire industry *always* prioritize sanitation and
safety. All of our programs include and follow stringent guidelines
established by state cosmetology and barbering boards and local health
departments for the proper cleaning and maintenance of tools and stations.
Even before the spread of COVID-19, we already provide a fully sanitized
experience, which includes washing our hands between each guest and
cleaning surfaces and tools with antibacterial cleaner. We are currently
taking additional measures, including the use of industrial-grade cleaners
to sanitize stations, door handles, and frequently touched services on a
more frequent basis and increasing the number of strategically placed
disinfectant wipes and hand-sanitizing stations throughout the building, so
students, staff, and visitors can use as desired.
1. As an institution of higher education, our priority is to keep our
students and team healthy while providing a safe environment for members of
the public who visit our clinic classroom. We respectfully ask that you
reschedule your appointment if any of the following conditions apply:
– If you have had recent fever or flu-like symptoms.
– If you have traveled to any of the affected areas in the world.
– If you have been exposed to the virus and are currently under the
14-day quarantine period.
1. Every Paul Mitchell School strives to create a safe space for our
Future Professionals and team members. During your visit, we look forward
to focusing on you, your hair, and your comfort. We would prefer not to
spend the visit analyzing and discussing COVID-19 or the world’s situation,
which can increase anxiety and panic for everyone involved.
We are grateful for your participation in our clinic classroom and
appreciate your understanding as we work to maintain a healthy and safe
