"I’ve had a dozen careers and countless jobs, all of which left me wanting more out of life and myself. A few years ago I went through some low points in my life spiritually and emotionally; it caused me to reflect on where I had been and what I had accomplished up till that point. Through a series of events and with great determination and intention, I enrolled in cosmetology school and have not looked back since. I’ve truly found my purpose and passion in life through hairdressing and my ability to connect with people. I am forever grateful for that and wish to share my enthusiasm and gusto for life with the world." - Jason
"Doing hair has always been a passion of mine. I started fresh out of high school and have been in the industry ever since. I realized this was the right fit for me when I became aware of how easily my job became my creative outlet. I’ve always wanted a career that made me happy while simultaneously being able to help others, and I’ve found that. Being able to express myself through my work has been my dream and doing this has accomplished that for me."- Veronica
"Being an athlete my entire life, I never found the ability to sit still. I was a scholar athlete in high school, which then turned into a collegiate athlete. Throughout my two years in college, the only passion I had was tennis. I lacked a creative outlet sitting in business courses, and I missed interacting with interesting, diverse people. When I decided to change my career path and transfer to Paul Mitchell, hair took over my life in the greatest way possible. I now know what it's like to go to my job and not feel like I am working. Hair has become my passion, my creative outlet, and my desire. Helping people look and feel their very best, developing a style that is their very own - that's what being a hairdresser is to me. From coloring to cutting, capturing an individuals personality is what drives my passion." - Eva

"Since having my first real barbershop experience, I have been extremely fascinated with the history and culture of barbering. After years of watching and learning from a distance, I decided to jump into barbering school in October of 2016. A few months later, Skull and Combs opened in my neighborhood and after checking it out and speaking with Jason, I was given the opportunity to apprentice here. I’m extremely excited to learn as much as I can as well as help create an exciting environment to get your hair done in New Haven." -Tyler
