12 years and still going strong, over 13,000 Paul Mitchell Future Professionals and staff raise money 3 months in a row for over ten charities. This year over 1.7m dollars were raised and the top 100 students who raised the most money were invited to The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, CA where the event took place. The evening was co-hosted by Pauley Parrette and Winn Claybaugh and joined by special guests Fran Drescher, Dolph Lundgren, Kathy Buckley, Gary Sinise, Magic Johnson, Marie Osmond and Leeza Gibbons


Thirst Project and Beauty Gives Back



The whole gang showed up in support of Thirst Project. Pauley Parrette, a HUGE supporter of Thirst Project, hosted the evenings events and was by Seth Maxwell’s side the whole time during the meet and greet. It’s incredible how humble and ready to get down-and-dirty at the drop of a hat for Seth, she is. Terrell Owens accompanied Eden Sassoon who both whole-heartedly spend countless hours fighting to end thirst. Eden was there representing Beauty Gives Back, a charity in support of Thirst Project helping unite the industry to end thirst.







The owners of Paul Mitchell The School Lexington tracked us down after almost asking the WHOLE room where we were seated. It’s always so fun seeing friends we made last year and begging them to let us come visit so we can go to the Kentucky Derby! It’s on the same weekend as the Gala… so now to only be in two places at the same time!






It’s incredible what can happen when a few people join together for a good cause. The students and staff work so incredibly hard for the 3 months during FUNraising and impact the lives of so many people in return. This year the Thirst Project joined the group of amazing causes that are benefited by the money raised, a charity that has grown near and dear to these Hair Nerd hearts of ours.
