July 2010: Good Habits, Good Luck; Bad Habits, Bad Luckby Paul Mitchell Schools on 7/23/2010
In today’s beauty industry, the tree of opportunity is in full bloom and choices for a career path are nearly endless. You can work behind the chair, be an editorial hairdresser, own a salon or distributorship, develop others through the education field, work in marketing, or choose from infinite other possibilities. However, there’s some pretty stiff competition for these opportunities. With over 100 Paul Mitchell Schools, more and more professionals are being added to the job market, many with the same ambitions you have. So, who wins the position: you or the other person? The answer will be YOU — but only if you develop an array of great habits to help you rise above the rest.
A habit is a pattern that you consistently practice and follow, without the constant need for reminder. Are you ALWAYS late? ALWAYS early? ALWAYS rushing through your blow dry? ALWAYS taking time to finish and polish your guest’s hair?
Your habits will be a definite factor in maintaining employment, as employers over time will notice the habits, good and bad, that you may not be aware of (since you do them automatically). At Paul Mitchell Schools and John Paul Mitchell Systems, habits have become essential to our growth; we call them systems. Think of the 10 Opportunities, the Wash House Experience, and even the process of draping a guest. We’ve developed these habits to ensure our continued success. Which habits do you consistently follow? Have you adopted these systems into your habitual routines?
Take 10 minutes, grab an honest friend, and recognize both the good and bad habits you follow. (Sometimes others can more easily point out your best and worst habits.) Which habits do you need to adopt, to support your career ambitions? Which ones do you already practice, and which ones do you need to improve? Remember, now is not the time in your career for taking shortcuts. Later, when you know all the rules and have done that haircut or color application a thousand times, then you can take some shortcuts. Now is the time to fine tune your skills and develop a reputation to ensure you soar above the rest.

Crae Hasler-Elliott wants to make you laugh — and learn. A 30-year veteran of the beauty industry, Crae has devoted her career to understanding and passing along the nuances and theories associated with hair color, while telling jokes and inspiring education. She has appeared on prestigious stages around the world as a platform artist, been featured in top industry magazines, won a NAHA award for hair color, and was voted “Most Innovative” by the audience of Hair Color USA.
As a teenager, Crae graduated with average marks from an etiquette-based finishing school. She bent most of the rules of good manners until the day she had a child of her own. Tired of what she calls ill-behaved people, she decided to finally speak up. Believing that pleasantries like thank-you notes and listening without interrupting need to make a comeback, she says, “It’s time for a national etiquette realignment.”
Interviewed by Winn Claybaugh, Crae calls for a return to manners and pleasantries. As passionate as she is about color, Crae is equally passionate about good manners and how they affect career success. For beauty professionals, basic etiquette can help you feel at home in social situations and arm you with answers to your service guests’ questions. In addition, she says, “Salon professionals have a great deal of influence on clients and those we come in contact with every day. Let’s make it a good influence.”
Hit the PLAY button for one of the most important interviews you’ll ever hear and join Crae as she touches on everything from thank-you notes and table manners to cell phone etiquette, appearance, and dress.

Paul Mitchell's annual Gathering in Las Vegas is just around the corner. Here's a fun look back at Gathering 2009, where Paul Mitchell artistic directors and Future Professionals rocked the stage!
Cosmetology Career Center (Dallas) — A Paul Mitchell Partner School, received a Silver award in the CISCA 2009 Construction Excellence Awards for their recent design and remodeling project. CISCA, the Ceilings and Interior Systems Construction Association, is dedicated to serving its industry and providing market-driven solutions to enhance success and profitability.
The project involved the renovation of an older space that had been divided into many small offices and retail spaces, most with 8- to 10-foot ceilings. The new design by Powell Dudley Frith (PDF) Architects more than doubled the ceiling height and included a complex, 43-foot metal ceiling system that transformed the space into a more contemporary look.
PDF Architects have been with the Paul Mitchell Schools network since day one. They designed the flagship school in Costa Mesa and have designed every school since then.
Inspired by an expression in Winn Claybaugh’s book, Be Nice (Or Else!), the Carolina Academy’s Core class decided to literally “Build a Bridge and Get Over It.” To grow their new extended family and help them surmount new challenges, Future Professionals used recycled cans and bottles to build their very own bridge.
Paul Mitchell Chairman and CEO John Paul DeJoria and Paul Mitchell Schools Dean and Cofounder Winn Claybaugh were on hand once again to celebrate grand openings at our five newest schools.
The tour began at JZ Trend Academy — A Paul Mitchell Partner School in Bismarck, North Dakota, where school owners Jodi and Arnie Zahn welcomed family, friends, and fellow owners from other Paul Mitchell Schools. Next stop: Paul Mitchell The School — Lexington, where surprise guest Miss Kentucky 2009 Mallory Ervin entertained and talked about her love for Paul Mitchell products. University of Kentucky men’s basketball players Darius Miller, Perry Stephenson, and Ramon Harris made a special appearance to wish Winn and John Paul a happy birthday. Other special guests included Vice Mayor Jim Gray and staff members, patients, and families from Children’s Miracle Network and two local children’s hospitals.
Then it was on to Paul Mitchell The School — Murfreesboro, where Mayor Tommy Bragg joined school owner Dale Jones for the grand opening ceremonies. At Paul Mitchell The School — Jacksonville, school owner Giulio Veglio was joined by Dennis Ratner, George Morales, and others for their ribbon cutting ceremony. Last stop: Paul Mitchell The School — Charleston, where Mayor R. Keith Summey joined in the fun.

Once again, Paul Mitchell Schools were on hand for the Fred Jordan Mission’s “Mother’s Week” celebration in downtown Los Angeles. Future Professionals and staff members from Paul Mitchell The School — Sherman Oaks, Paul Mitchell The School — Costa Mesa, and the Cao Institute of Aesthetics — A Paul Mitchell Partner School were among more than 200 hairstylists, manicurists, and makeup artists who donated their time for the annual event.
Over 2,000 people attended the celebration, which included a luncheon and beauty makeovers for the inner-city and Skid Row moms. The women received a shampoo, hairstyling, manicure-pedicure, and makeup. While the women were being pampered, their children were kept occupied with games, crafts, shampoos, and haircuts. At the end of the four-hour event, the mothers were given flowers and beauty supplies and the children were presented with gift bags.
The Fred Jordan Mission has fed, clothed, and sheltered Los Angeles’s neediest citizens since 1944, feeding hundreds of hungry people each day; building schools, orphanages, and hospitals around the world; distributing food and clothing to the homeless; and making holidays special for poor families. The mission has been putting on the Mother’s Day event for more than 60 years. For more information, visit www.fredjordanmission.org
Marjie Christensen, owner of the Reno Academy — A Paul Mitchell Partner School, completed the 7-day, 545-mile AIDS/LifeCycle bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles in June 2010, raising money for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the HIV/AIDS services of the LA Gay and Lesbian Center. This marked the seventh straight year that team members have represented Paul Mitchell Schools in the AIDS/LifeCycle, raising well over $100,000 to date.
“It was the most physically challenging event I have ever accomplished. I don't consider myself a cyclist, but I do understand love, dedication, friendship, loyalty, tender hearts, and a motivated community. I have 2,500 new friends who displayed all of these traits. Each one had their own story or reason to make the ride. It was wonderful to meet them, hear their stories, and feel the love, companionship, and camaraderie. I have already signed up for next year and plan on raising a lot of money and support for a very needed and worthy cause. Thank you so much for your support and well wishes. I was proud to represent Paul Mitchell Schools!”

From Connecting to My Future
A habit is something you do all the time. Your actions create habits, and your habits form your character and personality. Even simple activities that seem harmless or unimportant can transform into success strategies that launch you forward or destructive patterns that hold you back.
People often talk about luck, but I believe you make your own luck. Plain and simple: Good habits bring good fortune and success, while bad habits ultimately block success. If you want a good life, create good habits like the ones below:
- Let go. Stop blaming your past or your genetics or making excuses that keep you from feeling good about yourself.
- Affirm your success, worth, and talent. Positive self-talk is not boastful, arrogant, or egotistical; it’s healthy. For example, if your goal is to become a talented, successful hair colorist, your self-talk now might be: “I am a talented and skilled hair colorist” or “My clients always love and enjoy the color services I provide.” Affirm yourself with personal, positive, present-tense statements.
- Take action. Examine any undermining lifestyle habits and create a plan to change them. Stop smoking, start exercising, and eat right.
- Focus on your goals. Create goals and focus on them rather than on self-criticism.
- Take care. Some people take better care of their cars than they do of their bodies. Get or give yourself regular facials, manicures, and pedicures. Treat your body with respect.
- Wake up. Create a healthy morning routine. Include stretching, light exercise, visualizations of how you want to look, and a daily review of your image goals.
- De-stress. Choose to release stress in ways that do not undermine your image. Replace stress habits, like smoking or snacking, with healthy habits, such as deep breathing or stretching.
- Clean. Clean and unclutter your personal spaces.
- Make time for yourself. Learn to enjoy being alone. Read and listen to your favorite music. Spend time with supportive and healthy friends and family.
- Focus and forgive. Practice every day and forgive yourself if you get sidetracked.
The Esani Institute — A Paul Mitchell Partner School
Known as “the magician” for creating magic at school, Menuhin Hart was voted Most Likely to Make a Million Dollars, Best Sense of Humor, and All-Around Favorite. A member of every student-run club, he served as Student Council and Design Team president, was named Future Professional of the Month, was recognized for Best Attendance, and was a member of Phase Two. He spoke at the graduation ceremony, where he received a Spirit Award and was named Most Improved. Outside school, he was active in Atlanta fashion shows. And he managed all of this without a car.
“To appreciate who Menuhin really is, you have to walk in his shoes,” says Esani owner and director Arlene Lyons. “He took the bus to school every day, walking over a mile from the bus stop to get here, and still topped the school in attendance and attitude.”
At age 26, Menuhin dabbled in several fields before choosing cosmetology. An artist who loves drawing, painting, and sculpting, he was searching for a “recession-proof” career when a friend suggested the Paul Mitchell School. After taking a tour, he thought, “I guess I can do this.”
“Everybody was so nice, the energy was so great, but once I started Core it was a whole new story,” Menuhin recalls. Having never used anything but “a hairbrush, hair grease, and cologne,” and surrounded by women who were “knocking everything out, it was like I went to another planet,” he laughs. Thanks to a Learning Leader who stayed after school to help him every day, he quickly caught on and caught up.
With his love for the creative, artistic side of life, Menuhin definitely found his niche. “Haircutting is like drawing, hair color is like painting, and doing updos is like molding clay,” he says, “and to see people appreciate it feels really good.”
Menuhin’s Advice for Future Professionals:
- Just be nice. People can be nasty sometimes, but always remain professional and keep a calm tone.
- Talk to everybody. The majority of connections I have with photographers, clothing designers, and even Winn Claybaugh happened because I went up and talked to them. People respond to truth and honesty.
- Treat others like you want to be treated.
“This ex-computer engineer, music producer, DJ, and artist walked into our school with an improbable dream and a million-dollar smile and is now walking out as one of our most celebrated Future Professionals and leaders. Menuhin is about to light up the industry with his talent and charm, just as he did our school. Get ready … here he comes!”

Cosmetology Career Center (Dallas) — A Paul Mitchell Partner School
Annette Smith credits her Japanese upbringing with her desire to work hard and attend college. But after studying business management and landing a good job, she realized she wasn’t passionate about her work. One day, she saw an Oprah Show about a woman who left her job as Fortune 500 CEO to open a bakery. “That was my awakening moment,” Annette says. “I’d always loved doing hair. I regularly went to salons and watched the stylists so I could copy and do it at home. That is my passion.”
Armed with her new discovery, the mother of three enrolled at Cosmetology Career Center — A Paul Mitchell Partner School in Dallas, Texas, where she was active in Design Team, Caper, and Phase Two. “As graduation approached, I had my mind set that I wanted to find a Paul Mitchell salon,” Annette says. With her impressive résumé and a personal recommendation from Winn Claybaugh, she was hired as an assistant at Visible Changes, the successful Paul Mitchell Signature Salon chain. (Learn more about Visible Changes in this month’s new feature, “How to Get a Job.”)
“The first week was tough because nobody told me there were weekly goals to hit,” Annette says. “I was ranked 68 out of 110 assistants, and that was very upsetting but it gave me a push to hit the goal the following week.” In week two, she moved up to 48. “Two weeks ago I moved to number 16, and last week I moved up to number 10,” she says. “A Houston stylist was promoted to Director of Stylists in a year, and I want to break that record!”
Annette loves her new job. “I like the fact that they continue to educate us. You have to work but you get rewarded for it, and that gives me motivation to push myself. The salon is very organized, with weekly postings so we can see what we did and what we need to do better to make our goals.”
Annette’s Advice for Future Professionals:
- Paul Mitchell Artistic Director Stephanie Kocielski gave me this advice: “Do your best every day but do better every day.” Whatever I didn’t do well last week, I’m trying to do better.
- In Japanese we have a saying: Opportunity will drop on you, but you won’t catch it if you’re not ready.
“While in school, Annette created the great habits of attendance, getting involved, following the systems, and learning the product. She was always at the front of the class and now is at the front of her class at Visible Changes. Her habits created opportunities for her. She embodies the spirit of ‘Successful people do what unsuccessful people will not do.’”

Ever wonder what it takes to get hired at a top salon? This month, Visible Changes tells what it takes to become part of their team.
About Visible Changes: Winner of the 2006 Salon Entrepreneur of the Year at the Global Salon Business Awards in Barcelona, Spain, Visible Changes has been recognized by Intercoiffure, an organization that extends its membership to only the finest hair designers in the world. Listed twice as one of Inc. magazine’s fastest growing companies, Visible Changes has 17 salons in major Texas malls.
What We’re Looking For: At Visible Changes, we receive hundreds of applications a week, but we only interview and hire a few of those individuals because we are looking for people who can handle the responsibilities of a real career. We look for talented, motivated individuals who love interacting with people and possess a desire to change lives.
- The candidate should look like a professional hairdresser: fashionable, not trendy.
- Do some homework about Visible Changes. A good place to start would be a look at our Web site (www.visiblechanges.com) or visit one of our salons as a client before interviewing.
- You should want to work on a team; “stars” need not apply. Everyone’s job is important and everyone shares the credit.
- Don’t worry about how much you know, we’ll teach you our systems, but you must have a willingness to learn.
- You can’t get to the top without starting at the bottom.
- Don’t tell us you’re a hard worker, show us by not being afraid of long hours, dirty jobs, or challenges.
- Be enthusiastic. Come early, wear a smile, tell us about yourself and why you would fit at Visible Changes.
- If you’re looking for something short-term, don’t waste your time or ours. We want someone who is willing to commit for the long term (over 65% of our staff has five or more years of service with us).
We believe in the same positive principles that made Paul Mitchell a great company. Come see why our salons are such a fun and productive place to work!
To learn more, contact Visible Changes at email@example.com and attach a copy of your résumé, call our Corporate Office at (713) 984-8800, or come by one of our Texas salons, located in major malls in Houston, Austin, San Antonio, and Plano.

To help clean up the Gulf oil spill, Paul Mitchell Schools have partnered with Matter of Trust (www.matteroftrust.org). The California-based organization collects hair clippings and turns them into hair mats and hair booms that can surround and soak up oil.
Noting that there are more than 370,000 hair salons in the U.S. that throw away about 1 pound of hair a day, Matter of Trust suggests that it could be collected and made into hair mats instead — and Paul Mitchell Schools agree.
Paul Mitchell Future Professionals and staff members have joined thousands of volunteers in signing up to host or make booms at “Stocking Stuffers” and “Boom BQ” barbecue parties. The Academy at Austin — A Paul Mitchell Partner School in Texas and many other Paul Mitchell Schools are holding cut-a-thons and serving as drop-off centers to collect hair for the cause. Other schools, including Paul Mitchell The School — Provo, have been collecting and sending hair to Matter of Trust for the past several years.
At Vanguard College of Cosmetology — A Paul Mitchell Partner School in Slidell, Louisiana, the oil spill has literally hit home. The school sits a quarter mile from Lake Pontchartrain, where oil from the spill has begun seeping in. The school has hosted two Boom BQs, constructed more than 500 hair booms, and collected seven palettes of hair. Service Desk Coordinator Jes Latin volunteered her home as a collection and production site, but the school’s efforts outgrew the space and moved their operation to a warehouse owned by Paul Mitchell Distributor Vanguard Salon Systems.
“We are so proud that whenever something like this happens, our entire organization just jumps right in,” says Paul Mitchell Chairman and CEO John Paul DeJoria.
If you would like to be part of the effort to help clean up the Gulf oil spill, please contact your local Paul Mitchell School to find out how they’re involved. You can also contribute directly to Matter of Trust by visiting www.matteroftrust.org.
