The Temple is a proud contributor to Student Homeless Initiative Partnership of Frederick County (SHIP). SHIP is an organization servicing the local community of homeless students in the Frederick County School System. In 2014, SHIP organizers recognized an opportunity to provide basic needs to students after the discovery of a 12 year old middle school boy, living without parents, was approaching winter weather with broken down flip flops. This discovery just scratched the surface — organizers soon realized that he was just one of over 600 children within the Fredrick County Public School system experiencing homelessness.
As a Paul Mitchell Partner School (and just having a genuine spirit of giving), we know that giving back to the community is our rent for occupying earth. This past FUNraising season not only brought an infectious buzz of excitement to The Temple, but it also brought some funds to SHIP. This summer, Temple Frederick had the distinct pleasure of presenting a check to Ed Hinde, SHIP Executive Director, on behalf of our Future Professionals, Team and owners to benefit SHIP. Year after year, Temple Frederick participates in the national Paul Mitchell Schools network FUNraising campaign always making sure that we also give locally.
This year, we raised money by hosting our annual ballon drop, advanced education classes, spirit week, raffles and casual dress days. With these seemingly small events, we raised over, $800 to donate to SHIP.
We are so grateful for our Temple Frederick Team Members, guests and especially our Future Professionals for contributing to our global and local community.
The Temple Frederick, a Paul Mitchell Partner School, is included in over 20 Paul Mitchell Schools to wash and style wigs for EBeauty, an organization offering free wigs to cancer patients. Past cancer patients have donated their wigs to EBeauty, Future Professionals at Temple Frederick washed and styled wigs, then wigs are delivered to participating hospital partners for patients to select a wig of their choice. With Ebeauty hospital partners close to each Temple campus, school owners, Charles and Sharon Riser, will personally deliver wigs each month.
EBeauty founder Carolyn Keller, a cancer survivor, started the wig exchange program to allow other women with cancer diagnoses to still feel inspired and hold on to a sense of empowerment. Keller’s kindness has shared wigs with almost 30,000 women across the United States. Keller shares, “the primary goal of EBeauty is to provide all women, regardless of economic status or geographic location access to wigs.”
Paul Mitchell Schools offer robust educational opportunities to create excellent licensed cosmetologists while also creating responsible community leaders. In 2018, EBeauty partnered with Paul Mitchell Schools allowing campuses across the country to volunteer to share a piece of confidence with someone quite literally in the fight of their life. Temple Frederick immediately jumped on board with a dual purpose: serving the community and sharing wig maintenance education with all enrolled Temple Future Professionals. At the end of the lesson, each Future Professional wrote “love notes” to accompany each wig; one reading, “Soon when all is well, you’re going to look back on this period of your life and be so glad you never gave up.”
Always an example of kindness and an advocate of giving back co-owner, Sharon, shares, “We are excited to work with EBeauty because it allows our Future Professionals to apply what they’re learning at school while simultaneously making a difference in the lives of those facing the traumatic diagnoses of cancer.”
Looking at the month of February on a calendar always seems to draw your eye to February 14. We immediately think about that special someone and obsess over the most perfect gift to show just how much they are loved. With grand Valentine’s Day gestures being shared through almost every form of marketing, it’s easy to forget about how it feels just to receive a simple, hand made Valentine’s Day card. Caring Cards took a piece nostalgia to offer kindness to others that may need it the most.
Thinking back to time spent in Saperstein Critical Care Tower of Cedars-Sinai Hospital visiting friends, co-creator of ‘Caring Cards’ and Director of Shows for John Paul Mitchell Systems, Greg Bonhomme, remembered seeing patients without visitors. With this thought in mind, he suggested to his partner, Rabbit, that in leu of a lavish Valentine’s Day celebration, they spend time making Valentine’s Day cards to share with hospital patients. In 2017, the pair delivered 175 cards which was enough for every bed in Saperstein —with the goal eventually being able to share a card with every single patient in hospital care. Soon after, friends and family began to pitch in to create cards. From there, the word of kindness spread across the country encouraging schools and offices to jump on board.
When The Temple, a Paul Mitchell Partner School, co-owner, Sharon got wind of such a thoughtful initiative, it was a no brainer to get both Temple schools involved. Sharon shared, “Our school’s foundation is the culture. Having the ability to make someone’s day could mean giving to someone you may not even know”. Sharing the reason why Temple classrooms were transformed into a giant arts and crafts space, with The Temple Future Professionals made them even more excited for the opportunity to be a day maker. Instead of their normal canvas of hair, our Future Professionals thoughtfully crafted cards, with encouraging words to share with patients at Frederick Memorial Hospital and Anne Arundel Medical Center.
To be kind and to share kindness is a concept but when it’s believed and put into action makes it a lifestyle. Everyday, we are so proud of our Temple Team and Future Professionals for genuinely living the Paul Mitchell culture daily.

Each month, the Modern Original Products company (www.mopproducts.com) features an industry leader or icon in its “Modern Original People” blog. December 2018’s featured guest is Winn Claybaugh, dean and cofounder of Paul Mitchell Schools and author of Be Nice (Or Else!).
Like the Energizer Bunny, Winn Claybaugh just keeps going and going and going. High-energy doesn’t begin to describe the Co-Founder, Co-owner and Dean of Paul Mitchell Schools, whose busy schedule includes speaking engagements all over the country where he spreads a philosophy of business that has inspired generations of beauty professionals. Claybaugh had always sought out mentors for advice, but when he “added a microphone to the equation” 20 years ago, the MASTERS Audio Club was born. Since then the subscription-based monthly audio series has featured 325 top leaders and icons both in and out of the beauty industry.
Claybaugh’s first guest was the legendary Vidal Sassoon. “I figured if Vidal said yes to me, who would say no?” says Claybaugh, whose gambit paid off. Reflecting on some of his most memorable interviews, he mentions day spa pioneer Noel de Caprio, who lost her battle with breast cancer in December, 1998. “I interviewed her a month before she passed away, and I think she knew this would be her final message to the beauty industry, so it was a profound experience”

One of our students, Madison Pizer, at the Temple Frederick has been featured in the November issue of Beauty Launchpad!
From the article:
The next generation of stylists has already begun to make its mark on the industry, and the future looks gorgeous. These three student standouts have more than earned their admiration.
Inspiration: Madison Pizer, a student at The Temple, a Paul Mitchell Partner School in Frederick, Maryland, found inspiration in Mother Earth when creating her striking look. “The muted rainbow tones symbolize all that is bright on our beloved planet, while the light flowers and dewy makeup represent life and radiance,” she explains.
What made her pursue professional beauty?
The beauty industry combines Pizer’s love of art (particularly Claude Monet, Edouard Manet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir) with her desire to help others. “I absolutely adore making someone feel beautiful and transformed,” says Pizer. “There’s no better feeling in this world than making someone else’s day.”
