Angus Mitchell

Co-owner

Angus Mitchell was born into the legacy of late, legendary hairstylist Paul Mitchell. As the son of the hair fashion icon, Angus’ unique upbringing in the hair industry exposed him to 
the same passion that inspired his father, leading him to eventually fulfill
 his destiny in the first family of hair.

Educated at Vidal Sassoon, Angus has been able to combine their legendary precision technique with the free creative expression Paul Mitchell® encourages
 to craft his own signature style.
