The Best Kind of Conversation Starter this Holiday Season

It’s no secret that John Paul Mitchell Systems® partners with causes that are meaningful and impactful. We feel it’s important to give back to philanthropic organizations whose missions align with what we believe in. The season of giving is upon us and is a great time to start raising awareness about companies who give back. Do you know some of the causes that are important to your clients? Whether you do or don’t, starting this conversation with your clients is a great way to get to know them better.   Here are our upcoming philanthropic endeavors to keep in mind when talking to your clients to remind them to stay in the conversation this Holiday season.


Paul Mitchell® proudly supports Bright Pink’s mission to save women’s lives from breast and ovarian cancer by empowering them to live proactively at a young age. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and one in 75 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in her lifetime. Bright Pink inspires women to be their own best advocates when it comes to their breast and ovarian health.

The Mission

Bright Pink is a national women’s health organization on a mission to save women’s lives from breast and ovarian cancer. The organization’s innovative programs motivate women to prioritize prevention, assess their risk for breast and ovarian cancer, and manage their health proactively in partnership with a healthcare provider.

Our Partnership

Since 2014, Paul Mitchell has partnered with Bright Pink to educate its professionals, customers and students on their breast and ovarian health. In 2018, Paul Mitchell’s limited-edition Stargazer collection benefits Bright Pink, and Paul Mitchell Schools across the country fundraise for the cause during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Know Your Risk

It only takes five minutes to do something proactive for your breast and ovarian health. Take Bright Pink’s quiz to learn your personal risk. Knowledge is power, and when you know your risk, you can manage proactively.
