Paul Mitchell The School – Atlanta opened under the direction of John Paul Mitchell Systems’ Artistic Director, Scott Cole in 2004. We reside in beautiful midtown Atlanta in The King Plow Arts Center; a home to artists, dancers, advertising agencies and graphic designers. We surround our Future Professionals with a creative environment and provide them with an industry-leading comprehensive cosmetology program, allowing them to leave our school with all the necessary education tools to become a successful professional hair designer.
