Caper 2018 in Anaheim, California proved to once again be a life-altering experience for Temple Frederick Future Professionals!
Every year, several thousand Paul Mitchell Future Professionals from all over the country gather for this once in a lifetime educational experience designed just for them.
Held at Disneyland in California, this educational event featured hands-on classes with top stylists as well as inspiring motivational speakers like John Paul DeJoria, Winn Claybaugh and Tim Story.
“We are so proud of the 10 visionary Future Professionals who earned their way to this outstanding event! This really is an extraordinary opportunity for them to further their skills as well as start their career off right,” said Sharon Riser, co-owner of The Temple.
Below is an inside look at some of the magic from this year’s Caper event:

For the 4th year in a row, the Temple: A Paul Mitchell Partner School was thrilled to be a part of the annual Daddy Daughter Dance this past February at the Frederick Fairgrounds hosted by City of Frederick Parks & Rec Department.
Nearly 800 father/daughter couples attended the sold-out soiree where Temple Future Professionals provided nail services along with goody bags with Paul Mitchell samples and complimentary follow up discount cards.
The City of Frederick generously donates $350 to The Temple’s annual Paul Mitchell School FUNraising efforts that benefits 11 different non-profit organizations on a local and national level.
“This event was amazing for both me as a staff member as well as the Future Professionals that participated. Tons of fun for everyone! They were all outstanding and really made a difference for attendees. We always love making them smile!” said Liz Rapalus, Learning Leader.
Future Professionals from The Temple: A Paul Mitchell Partner School were treated to a day of inspiration with three national industry leaders – Geno Stampora, Jeanne Braa Foster and Dr. Dean Foster – at The Weinberg Center for the Arts on June 7, 2017.
“Bringing in guest artists of this caliber is incredibly important to our curriculum and the personal development and career growth for the Future Professionals in our doors,” said Charles Riser, co-owner of The Temple: A Paul Mitchell Partner School.
The event included a morning session with Geno Stampora, industry expert, author, and speaker. As a sales consultant, distributor and platform artist, Geno has shared the stage with some of the world’s greatest artists and has been featured in numerous publications including Glamour, Elle, The New Yorker, Washingtonian among others. He is also a recipient of NAHA’s 2009 Hall of Leaders Award.
Jeanne Braa Foster was Paul Mitchell’s stage partner, working on stage with him from the launch of the Paul Mitchell product line in 1980 until he lost his battle to cancer in 1989. An extraordinary hairdresser, Jeanne became the first artistic director of John Paul Mitchell Systems and received the first North American Hairstyling Trustees Award.
Jeanne retired in 2001 and married Dr. Dean Foster, an orthopedic surgeon, and cancer educator. Together they formed Eyes on Cancer, an awareness program that trains beauty professionals to recognize the early signs of skin cancer on their guests.
“Watching Geno and Jeanne speak was amazing and so motivational! I loved hearing Geno’s messages about believing in yourself and not giving up,” said Sydney Kuhl Future Professional. “Jeanne was phenomenal on stage with her models. We were so impressed with how easily – and quickly – she created each look!”
