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.
In support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Paul Mitchell Schools joined John Paul Mitchell Systems to raise money and awareness about this important cause. At Paul Mitchell Schools across America, Future Professionals and staff members spent the month of October 2012 participating in Making Strides walks, holding bake sales and cut-a-thons, and selling pink ribbons and pink hair extensions to raise over $74,320 for the American Cancer Society.
Caper has officially begun! Each year, Paul Mitchell Future Professionals have the opportunity to earn their way to Caper, an unforgettable educational event designed just for them in Las Vegas. With a theme of "Our Dreams, Our Future," Paul Mitchell Schools everywhere kicked off Caper 2013, with zany skits, guest speakers, entertainment, and fun!
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.
Future Professionals and team members at Paul Mitchell the School North Haven donated their time for a special cause: the Dawn Lafferty Hochsprung Fund.
Co-hosted by Marie Osmond and Winn Claybaugh at the legendary Beverly Hilton Hotel, home of the Golden Globe Awards, the 2012 FUNraising Gala featured special guests Betty White, Fran Drescher, Kathy Buckley, Kristin Bauer, and a live performance by Natasha Bedingfield. This year, the schools raised over $2.5 million for charity!

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. He called upon the schools' Be Nice (Or Else!) teams to hold "Ann Bowler Day," and it was a rousing success. This year, he asked them to repeat the event, and the response was overwhelming. 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.'"

Future Professionals broke from their signature black outfits to hold "Casual for a Cause" days, donating money to dress casually for the day. They also invited family, friends, and guests to "buy" paper bottles for Haiti relief, donated tips, and held a number of other activities, from bake sales to benefit concerts.

Hands Across the Sandis a movement of people from all aspects of life. This movie is not about politics, it's about protection of our coastal economics, bodies of water, wildlife, and fishing industries. On June 26, 2010 the North Haven Academy Green Team joined together with New Haven county locals. This particular movement was focused on the prevention of off shore oil drilling. Together as one we lined the beach holding hands to actively show our love and gratitude for mother nature. You can check this organization out at www.handsacrossthesand.com!!
