Meet Hair Industry 'Rock Star' Angus MitchellOwner of Angus Mitchell Salon in Beverly Hills and Co-Owner of Paul Mitchell Systems Focuses His Growing Empire on Two Things: Raising the Bar on Stylist Education and Seeking New Ways to Express His Philanthropic Heart (January 13, 2012)
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/13/12 -- Anyone can follow in their father's footsteps and carry on the family business -- but it takes a soulful visionary like Angus Mitchell (www.angusmsalon.com) to keep that path fresh and vibrant, build on that legacy and continually raise the bar by educating a whole new generation of haircutting professionals.
The son of revolutionary hairstylist and hair care products legend Paul Mitchell travels the world, creating a media sensation everywhere he goes with his rock concert-like multi-million dollar, multi-media hair shows. Mitchell and his crew of technicians, cameramen, stylists, choreographers, dancers and models have drawn thousands to their events everywhere from Las Vegas and The Royal Albert Hall in London (where the crowd topped 10,000) to Italy, Germany, Russia, South Africa and Taiwan.
As the Artistic Director of Education for John Paul Mitchell Schools & Systems -- the company his father founded in 1980 with John Paul DeJoria, Angus has trained a new generation of professionals in Germany, Switzerland, Japan and throughout the U.S. His simple message: cut hair, develop your skills, be creative and enjoy success.
On December 27, 2011, Angus generously donated a historic coastal property in Hawaii, valued at $6.5 million to the Nature Conservancy. The idyllic seven acre parcel, located at Kiholo Bay on the breathtaking North Kona Coast of the Big Island, is home to historic fishponds and dozens of green sea turtles. It was once part of the landholdings of King Kamehameha I. Paul Mitchell acquired the land in the late '80s, during a critical time of his life.
February 20-24, 2012, Paul Mitchell Schools will invite students to its annual Caper event at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas. Allowing Angus ample stage time to teach and interact, Caper is one of the company's largest annual showings.
Angus and his wife Michelle Mitchell, Director of Business Development of the Angus Mitchell Companies, have contributed to numerous organizations including the Pancreatic Action Network, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and the Andrew Gomez Dream Foundation. Over the past eight years, their annual "FUNraising" campaign has raised over $6 million.
