Superstar Stylist and Paul Mitchell School Educator Diana Schmidtke Makes Her 3rd Appearance on Oprah’s Makeover Show
Over 2,500 Future Professionals fell in love with Diana Schmidtke at our 2011 Las Vegas Caper. Now everyone can see her on Oprah’s last-ever makeover extravaganza, this Thursday, May 12 (check local listings for air times).
The show features superstar hairdressers Orlando Pita, Ken Paves, and Sally Hershberger, plus makeup artists Bobbie Brown and Collier Strong, and fashion designers Michael Kors, Tory Burch, and Diane Von Furstenburg.
In a sneak peek behind the scenes, Diana said she was the only hairdresser on the show to work on the male makeover, and she used both Paul Mitchell Pro Tools and the soon-to-be-released Mitch Haircare for Men by Paul Mitchell.
“Given the opportunity to be part of Oprah’s last makeover show, and given the caliber of talent for her chosen all-star teams, which includes Sally Hershberger, Ken Paves, Orlando Pita, and Frederic Fekkai, you can bet I proudly brought only my Paul Mitchell tools,” Diana said.
Tune in this Thursday, May 12, to see our very own Diana Schmidtke on Oprah’s last makeover show!
