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.
We had a photo booth come into our school for our December 20th, 2012 holiday party! We ordered lunch for all the students and and they brought side dishes to share.

On September 18, 2012, an army of 16,000 future beauty professionals took to the streets throughout the continental United States and Hawaii for our fourth annual Paul Mitchell Schools Free Hugs Day. "Our Free Hugs campaign is just one of the many ways our future beauty professionals show their passion and compassion in their local communities," said Paul Mitchell Schools Dean and Cofounder Winn Claybaugh. "As members of the beauty industry, we're in the business of helping people look beautiful. More important, it's part of our 'be nice' culture to help people FEEL beautiful." Dressed in their signature black outfits, carrying handmade "Free Hugs" signs, and naturally sporting fabulous styles, students and staff from the network's 100 schools put down their combs and marched out the door, heading for plazas, parks, and other popular spots to offer hugs and make people's day.

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.

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.'"
Three talented Future Professionals from the nationwide network of Paul Mitchell Schools have been named "Next Top Photo Stylist" by Paul Mitchell Editorial Director Lucie Doughty and a panel of distinguished judges.

In immediate response to Haiti's devastating earthquake, Paul Mitchell Schools Dean and Cofounder Winn Claybaugh called for a nationwide fundraising day. "Our goal is $1,000 per school, times our 100 schools, for a total of $100,000," Winn said. The schools rose to the challenge and raised over $83,500 within two weeks. A personal donation from John Paul DeJoria, chairman and cofounder of John Paul Mitchell Systems, brought the total to $100,000. Future Professionals broke from their signature black outfits to hold "Casual for a Cause" days, donating money to dress casually for the day.
