Beauty school closes Tysons location after 18 years

Paul Mitchell’s beauty school is departing Tysons Corner Center after almost two decades of providing hair care services and training at the mall.

After halting acceptances of new students, the school is observing its last day of business today (Wednesday).

“We hope to continue to serve the community and applicants at another one of our franchise locations,” Paul Mitchell Tysons said in a message on its website. “We encourage you to visit our location finder to find a school location nearest you.”

Confirming that the school isn’t being relocated, an employee in Tysons told FFXnow that the closure was “unexpected” but didn’t have any information about what led to the decision. FFXnow has reached out to Paul Mitchell’s corporate office for comment.

A Tysons Corner Center spokesperson said the mall had nothing to add beyond confirming that the move by Paul Mitchell is “a corporate closing.”

Located at 8041-L Tysons Corner Center next to Nordstorm, Paul Mitchell The School offered a range of cosmetology programs to aspiring beauticians, who could get practical experience with haircutting, coloring and styling as well as makeup, skin care and nails.

The 11,000-square-foot salon also sold hair and beauty products, such as shampoo and lotion. In the weeks leading up to the closure, all products have been available at a 50% discount.

Paul Mitchell opened its school at Tysons Corner Center in January 2006 as a partnership with Ratner Companies, the now-defunct, Vienna-based parent company of Hair Cuttery, according to a Washington Post article from that time.

The Tysons salon was the company’s only location in the D.C. area, but it does have a school in Roanoke and a partner academy in Virginia Beach.
