Angus Mitchell


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.

Paying it Forward

This parcel was my father’s Eden—his Shangri-La. He thought it was the most beautiful spot on Earth, as do I. This land evokes a wonderful spiritual energy and beauty, and I believe I can best serve his intentions by having this land protected in perpetuity.”
