Future professionals from Paul Mitchell the School Huntsville in Madison, AL will be part of an army of beauty school students who take to the streets on September 23, 2010, when Paul Mitchell Schools throughout the continental United States and Hawaii hold their second nationwide Free Hugs Day. Inspired by the Sick Puppies YouTube music video about Juan Mann’s popular Free Hugs campaign, numerous Paul Mitchell Schools have held Free Hugs Days in locations throughout America, and last year’s nationwide event was a huge success. “As members of the beauty industry, we’re in the business of helping people look beautiful,” said Paul Mitchell Schools Dean and Cofounder Winn Claybaugh. “More important, it’s part of our ‘be nice’ culture to help people feel beautiful. Our Free Hugs campaign is just one of the many ways our Future Professionals show their passion and compassion in their local communities.” Dressed in their signature black outfits, carrying handmade “Free Hugs” signs, and naturally sporting fabulous styles, roughly 10000 Future Professionals from the network’s 100 schools will head for plazas, parks, and other popular spots to offer hugs and make people’s day. Events for day and night school students will occur simultaneously in every time zone throughout the country.
