Color your Confidence

The Paul Mitchell color wand sprinkles confidence through the magic of the makeover. The experiences of six women reveal the power of feeling beautiful. In the struggle to deal with homelessness, addiction, low income or a jagged career path, women can lose sight of their own beauty. As a longtime supporter of Chrysalis, a nonprofit group in California dedicated to helping people regain their self-sufficiency, Paul Mitchell treated six Chrysalis clients to full makeovers. For this Color Your Confidence campaign, the Paul Mitchell Artistic Team designed a style and color to bring out each woman’s individual glamour and, with it, confidence in her appearance and future.
