Rock Star of the Hair World Angus Mitchell and 2,500 Paul Mitchell 'Future Professionals' Head to Las Vegas February 20-22 for the 27th Annual Caper Event Featuring Top Beauty Industry Leaders and Surprise Celebrity Guests

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Feb 8, 2012) - Get ready, Las Vegas -- you're about to get glitzier and more glamorous than ever!

On February 20-22, Caesars Palace rolls out the red carpet for the Paul Mitchell cosmetology schools' 27th Annual Caper event -- a smoke- and alcohol-free, hands-on educational extravaganza expected to draw 200 staff members and more than 2,500 students (known as "Future Professionals") who earned the trip by selling specially packaged Paul Mitchell products.

Angus Mitchell -- the son of revolutionary hairstylist and hair care products legend Paul Mitchell, also the current Co-owner and Artistic Director of Education of John Paul Mitchell Systems and owner of the renowned Angus Mitchell Salon Beverly Hills -- is scheduled for an interview and hair demo on Fox's More Show on local outlet KVVU-TV on February 23, airing at 6 p.m.

On February 21, Angus joins Paul Mitchell Co-founder and Chairman John Paul DeJoria, Global Artistic Director Robert Cromeans, and Paul Mitchell Schools Dean and Co-founder Winn Claybaugh for the Caper welcoming ceremony -- followed by five high-energy fashion presentations featuring Paul Mitchell artists, educators, artistic directors, students, and staff.

Other top leaders in and out of the professional beauty industry will join in the three days of nonstop education, motivation, inspiration, and fashion. Special guests include: 21st-century icon Robert Lobetta, a hairstylist, salon owner, product creator, marketer, teacher, public speaker, photographer, director, and artist; Tabatha Coffey, host of Bravo TV's Tabatha's Salon Takeover and Tabatha Takes Over; and comedian Kathy Buckley, who appeared at Caper last year and has spoken at numerous Paul Mitchell Schools.

Led by school owner and Advanced Academy team member George Morales, the students will be featured in multiple presentations including MITCH -- Paul Mitchell's new line of men's hair products -- followed by an Awapuhi segment.

Each year, thousands of future professionals and staff members from Paul Mitchell Schools donate their time, talent, and energy to support a variety of charitable causes. Over the past eight years, their annual, three-month-long "FUNraising" campaign has raised over $6 million through bake sales, fashion shows, cut-a-thons, grassroots outreach, and countless other activities and events to support the schools' philanthropic efforts.
