As you'll read about in our October issue, we have a new addition to our blogging team: Hanna Compton, a new Future Professional (that's Paul Mitchell speak for "student") at The Cao Institute of Aesthetics, A Paul Mitchell Partner School. Starting today, Hanna will be blogging about her experiences as she jumps into the world of hairstyling. Some of you might start learning along with her; others may get flashbacks to their own days in beauty school; still others might be inspired to pursue further education. Wherever you may fall, you'll definitely find her journey exciting and interesting. Enjoy the ride!
