Editor's Description

At Austin's prestigious Paul Mitchell School, cosmetology students (or as the school calls them, Future Professionals) are guided by expert Learning Leaders through the program's three levels: Core, Adaptive and Creative.

The program focuses on advanced techniques and helping students build real-world skills and confidence as they move through each stage.

Students are provided with an entire cosmetology kit—including an iPad—to assist them throughout their studies. Those who want to be challenged to their highest level of performance can opt to take an additional set of intensive study known as Phase Two.

Alongside the cosmetology program, the Paul Mitchell School also offers courses in esthetics, barbering, and instructing. Alumna Kaitlyn says, "The program really gave me a broad knowledge base so that any salon I went to, there was something I could offer—I wasn't just limited to doing one thing. That really sets you up for success."
