History

THE EARLY DAYS

Deborah Schmidt, a Cincinnati native & UC Graduate, opens Mitchell’s for hair, skin & nails on Montgomery Road in Montgomery with 10 employees.

Started the 1st education program in Cincinnati for new stylists that consisted of both theory and hands on curriculum.

Did our first photo shoot for direct mail and Cincinnati Enquirer advertisement.

We were the first tanning bed in Cincinnati and the appointments filled up immediately at $10 per appointment.

Business grew to a size where we had to work shifts at all stations. One designer would work 9am-3pm and the next would work 3pm-9pm.

Brought in internationally renowned stylists/educators to Cincinnati to train our stylists.

A tradition that we have maintained ever since.

THE FIRST KENWOOD MITCHELL’S

Took a deep breath and moved the Montgomery salon to Kenwood.

Our salon interior was featured in all the beauty salon trade publications. We were setting the standard for other salons to meet.

We went from 2,500 to 10,000 square feet. From 1 facial room to an actual spa. From 12 hair stations to 30.

What a place!

Created our first signature haircut, “The Mitch”.

It was so exciting to have clients come in with photos of a hairstyle Mitchell’s had created and request that style.
