DRIVING THE BRAND: Meet PR Pro at Paul Mitchell, LindseyHer job is beautiful.  Lindsey Provost works internally doing Public Relations for global hair care giant, Paul Mitchell. All day, she interacts with beauty editors, beauty bloggers, beautiful products and beautiful people, sharing the good news about Paul Mitchell.  Next week, Provost will be at The Gathering 2013, Paul Mitchell’s annual “happening” in Las Vegas where salons and stylists come to learn new techniques, be introduced to new products and to be energized and inspired. So, where does this beauty behind the brand go to find her inspiration?

FAVORITE SITES/BLOGS: I’m beauty obsessed.  I also spend a lot of time planning events so I end up looking at a combination of business-related and beauty-specific sites like Style Sight and Biz Bash.  I love Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram.  You should look at Lucy’s (Lucy Doughty, Paul Mitchell Editorial Director ) Twitter.  I  read beauty editor’s blogs and this site, every day, Cupcakes & Cashmere.



BEST PART OF MY JOB: The people.  Really, everyone is so willing to help, at any time.  It’s a wonderful, supportive team.

NOW READING:  I read all day long at work that when I get home, I don’t do much.

NOW LISTENING TO: I love, love music.  I blast music in my office all day.  This spring, I saw Alt-J at The Wiltern, Portugal.The Man at the Hollywood Palladium.   (NOTE: Since this interview, we are certain she has been to many more concerts. -MODERN SALON)

HIDDEN TALENT: I was a dancer and I still take classes.  Lately I’ve been taking Bollywood Classes. I love it.

WORST PART OF MY JOB: I can get a little intense.  I sometimes have to remind myself that it’s only shampoo.
