How We Change Lives
Special Message from Winn Claybaugh
At Paul Mitchell Schools, our culture is about bringing out the best in people and situations, changing lives, making a difference, healing the planet, and healing ourselves. Yes, we have a dress code, attendance requirements, educational standards, and all the other elements of a successful organization, but we also provide safe, loving environments where people have overcome addictions, built self-esteem, left bad relationships, found mentors, and discovered a support system similar to the best family you could ever imagine.
Our vision is happy, successful Future Professionals and graduates. It would be wonderful if they came to us unbroken, but unfortunately our students sometimes struggle with serious issues such as eating disorders, domestic violence, depression and suicide, and gender and sexual identity.
This special section of the Web site features true stories from real people about how their lives were changed by attending a Paul Mitchell School. I want to recognize and thank the Future Professionals, alumni, and team members who generously shared their stories and messages.
XOXO, Winn Claybaugh
Dean and Cofounder of Paul Mitchell Schools
