The Paul Mitchell School is in the hip, renovated King Plow Art Center, which had previously been an old factory. It's just to the west of downtown Atlanta on Marietta Street. The school looks like a huge, high style beauty salon, with tall mirrors and cutting stations spread throughout the floor. So the students can practice their hair styling, the school is open for customers 6 days a week and offers a full range of services at deep, deep discounts. The prices are two-tiered, with slightly higher prices for the more advanced students. All the cutting is supervised by teachers, so all the cuts turn out great. You can get a shampoo and cut in a nice salon for only $11. The only problem is that the newer students can take a longer time to cut your hair, and a two hour cut is not uncommon.
