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.
Some of our Future Professionals went to Evergreen Place to do manicures and spread holiday cheer!
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.

"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.
