When Paul Mitchell Schools' Dean and Cofounder Winn Claybaugh lost his good friend Ann Bowler in 2010, he wanted to do something to honor her memory. "During our time together, every time I asked Ann if there was anything I could do for her, her only response was, 'Just be my friend.'" Inspired by that simple request, Winn called upon the student-run Be Nice (Or Else!) Teams at Paul Mitchell Schools to hold annual "Ann Bowler Days." Each December, in Ann's honor, students and staff members visit nursing homes and senior centers across America, singing Christmas carols, bearing small gifts, offering mini manicures and hairdos, and providing love and companionship to their new friends.

When Paul Mitchell Schools dean and cofounder Winn Claybaugh lost his good friend Ann Bowler last year, he wanted to do something to honor her.

Students and staff members from the nationwide network of cosmetology schools flocked to nursing homes and senior centers during the month of December, singing Christmas carols, bearing small gifts, and offering mini manicures and hairdos. Most important, they provided love and companionship to their new friends.

After his 92-year-old friend Ann Bowler passed away in December, Paul Mitchell Schools Dean and Cofounder called on his staff and Future Professionals to find and visit a local nursing home, retirement home, or assisted living center and create some magic by bringing gifts (if appropriate), singing carols, reaching out to these adorable individuals. He also reminded them to sincerely thank the nurses, doctors, and caregivers who look after these beautiful people. "I realize that this time of the year is very busy for all of you," Winn said. "Actually, I can't think of a better time of year because many elderly people feel especially alone during the holidays. Mostly you'll be there providing love, a hug, and companionship. Each and every time I asked Ann if there was anything I could do for her, her one and only response was, 'Just be my friend.'"
