Editor's Description

Situated in the center of Staten Island and just a short ferry ride to Manhattan, at Paul Mitchell The School NYC, students—or, as they're known on campus, "Future Professionals"—are trained for careers as licensed cosmetologists after they complete the program.

Students on the 1,000-hour cosmetology program are led through three levels of education—Core, Adaptive, and Creative—taking on more advanced techniques and building real-world skills and confidence as they move through each stage. Specialist makeup classes are also available.

Students are encouraged to give back to their communities, and three-month-long FUNraising campaigns are run annually. Since 2004, over $21 million has been raised for charity by Paul Mitchell Schools around the country.

"Paul Mitchell The School adapts to your particular learning style," says alumnus Dustin. "I'm more hands-on, I'm not good with books. It doesn't feel like you're at school, you're just having fun. Paul Mitchell The School gets you ready for salon life."
