John Paul Mitchell Systems (JPMS), the largest privately held manufacturer of professional salon products, and PS Salon & Spa (PS), the largest professional salon and spa operator in the national senior living market, announced that the two organizations are partnering together to deliver an enhanced lifestyle experience to seniors, families and senior communities across the country.
As part of the partnership, PS Salon & Spa will bring many of the celebrated John Paul Mitchell Systems product lines into their over 760 locations nationwide, and Paul Mitchell will mobilize its network of national educators and product professionals to provide supplemental product, service and best practice training to PS Salon & Spa’s 1,300 employees.
Additionally, PS Salon & Spa and John Paul Mitchell Systems will explore opportunities to partner on philanthropic initiatives that extend each organization’s rich history of giving back to their communities.
“Going well beyond a product partnership, PS Salon & Spa and Paul Mitchell are intently focused on bringing exceptional quality and higher experiential value to the senior living space – an industry which, before PS launched in 2008, has been largely under-served by the professional beauty industry. This engagement builds upon our track record of delivering unique innovations to the senior living industry,” said John Polatz, CEO of PS Salon & Spa. “With their globally-recognized brand and four decades of history as a professional beauty leader, we are thrilled to be working with John Paul Mitchell Systems.”
“It was clear from our first conversation that our organizations are culturally and philosophically aligned in bringing beauty and dignity to every person,” explained Jason Yates, Chief Operating Officer, of John Paul Mitchell Systems. “Paul Mitchell is very excited to partner with PS Salon & Spa and know that our products and decades of professional beauty expertise are going to benefit the thousands of seniors and families PS Salon & Spa touches throughout its network.”
