|The Wednesday evening, January 23, 2008 at 7 p.m. the grand opening of The Academy Waukesha - A Paul Mitchell Partner School.
The school just south off Highway T on Silvernail Road hosted John Paul Mitchell Systems CEO John Paul DeJoria and Dean
of Paul Mitchell Schools Winn Claybaugh. Owners Dave and Cathi Simon began the school several months ago and this event marked
the official grand opening.
The red carpet was literally out for the Grand Opening of the Paul Mitchell School in Waukesha - and who could blame them? John
Paul DeJoria (the guy from the Paul Mitchell TV ads) was coming as was Winn Claybaugh
Of course, what would a grand opening be without a style show? This one was themed on being Earth-friendly and all the
outfits as well as hairstyles were made of recycled objects, without aerosols and without electricity
And people say they don't know how to recycle plastic bags...
Crowds of students, parents, and community members gathered along with business partners/salon representatives
from around the Milwaukee area
