Paul Mitchell struck a distribution deal with select Marriott hotels.
It’s well documented how, in 1980, John Paul DeJoria teamed up with Paul Mitchell to form John Paul Mitchell Systems. Mitchell died at 53 from pancreatic cancer, but his son Angus, 42, serves as the company’s artistic director and has his own salon, Angus Mitchell Salon Beverly Hills.

In May, Mitch Construction Paste was named “Best Hair Paste” by Men’s Health readers.

Everyone knows that DeJoria is the founder of Patrón Spirits Co. But did you know that he is big backer of sustainability? He is the majority shareholder in Gustin Energy, an environmentally-friendly natural gas and oil explorer, and his DeJoria Diamonds sells conflict-free diamonds. Last year, he started JPSelects.com, an online marketplace for sustainable products.

In a recent interview with Fortune, DeJoria offered three bits of wisdom for would-be entrepreneurs:
  • Be prepared for rejection.
  • Make the highest-quality products.
  • Practice sustainability.
This year, John Paul Mitchell Systems will enter 2,000 select Marriott hotel doors across North America—a first for the company. According to reports, 24 million units of four unisex Paul Mitchell’s Salon Classics products be available throughout four Marriott brands: Courtyard by Marriott, SpringHill Suites by Marriott, Residence Inn by Marriott and TownePlace Suites by Marriott.
