With a passion for hair color and styling, she combines artistry and practicality to translate the latest trends into beautiful looks that work for the realistic needs of everyday consumers.

From my first moments as a Future Professional at Paul Mitchell the School until now, I have admired and been inspired by a long line of Paul Mitchell® Artistic Directors. I am honored and delighted that JPMS™ has invited me to join and contribute to such a rich heritage. We’re in an exciting moment in time, and I am looking forward to everything we will create together to celebrate and elevate hairdressers and the beauty industry,” shares Paula.
