Beauty Industry Shows
We want you to see and learn as much as possible. Events like Caper, Beacon, and NAHA are a great way to expand your horizons, connect with peers and future employers, and start envisioning your future in the beauty industry.
Every year, several thousand Paul Mitchell Future Professionals gather in Vegas for this educational extravaganza designed just for them. Caper features fashion shows, inspiring motivational speakers, hands-on classes with top stylists, a Career Connection where students can network with salons, and fun theme parties. Students earn their way to Caper by selling retail products to clients at their school.
Paul Mitchell Schools encourage every Future Professional to apply to attend Beacon, the premiere national event for cosmetology students. Beacon students attend specialized classes with the biggest names in the industry, get up close and personal with top stylists, and get a firm understanding of the business of beauty.
The North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA)
Beacon winners get to attend NAHA, an iconic beauty competition known as “the Oscars of hair.” NAHA is when the beauty industry comes together to celebrate its achievements and its brightest stars.
