Ron and Judi really care for their students even when they are graduated and out in the real world, they do anything and everything to still help them along their journey, we are never forgotten! They have helped me so much throughout my life journey and did everything they could to make sure I had what I needed. I have never been so blessed to have chosen Z Hair Academy it has taught me so much not only just the technical but the real world. If I had to do it all over again I would still do it the same exact way, I would never choose any other place. Doing hair is my dream and I would never be on this path without them. Ron and Judi have truly inspired me and have shown me how to be inspired, I knew I loved doing hair but seeing their passion set a great example of what it is really about! Thank you so much for everything you have done for me and my future, I will always remember what you have taught me!

I'm trying to find the perfect words to thank you for such an excellent and exciting educational experience for my daughter Shannon! I knew she was in good hands from the minute I met Judi and Ron. But never did I realize the amount of care and guidance and real world advise that Shannon would receive. She came an amazingly long way in just eleven months. Truly, her education and experience at Z Hair Academy has set her up with a great career with many options to take her throughout life. BRAVO Judi and Ron! If only other parents could feel my sense of pride as my daughter graduates today. Thank you for everything!
Shelly, parent of Z Graduate Shannon D.
Ron & Judi,
I just wanted to thank you both for bringing in Suzie Bond and Steven Cristobal from L'Oreal Professionnel. I learned a lot and really enjoyed the presentation. I love my new job and I really feel like my education has given me the ability to step in and learn from my fellow stylist with confidence rather than be intimidated and settle for less. It was thrilling to realize I was able to learn techniques in school that 20+ year industry professionals are doing in the salon and it only confirms what I've believed from the beginning - you guys are truly the best of the best! So thanks again for bringing such a great educational opportunity to our community!
Client Testimonial: July 2012
I only take my family of six to the Z Hair Academy in Overland Park. We always get great cuts for a great price. The staff is friendly and works well with my kids. I need a professional quality haircut for the military and Z Academy never fails to get the job done. I will always get my haircuts there.

What do our students, clients, industry partners and others have to say about Z Hair Academy? Read our testimonials and find out! Let them tell you why their experience at Z Hair Academy was worth talking about.
As a graduate of Z Hair Academy, I can say in one year it completely changed my life. At Z, they didn't just teach me the basics of doing hair, they taught me how to be successful and how to have confidence and passion for doing hair. Z is a school filled with amazing instructors with incredible knowledge and patience for teaching. The opportunities and preparation Z gives their students allowed me to be successful in less than two months after graduating. I proudly passed both my theory and practical exam and began working in a well-known, upscale salon in Overland Park. Z was the right choice for me and should be for those serious about doing hair. I'll always be thankful to Judi and Ron and their amazing staff for getting me where I am today.

Beauty Industry Professional
In my 32 years as a Professional Salon Business Consultant, I have never seen an academy operated in such a professional manner. I thought I was walking into a salon with ten year veterans working behind the chair. Their dedication to education and commitment to excellence has raised the bar for future professionals entering this amazing industry. You will not even have to wonder if you or your child is getting the most advanced education. The salons I do business with ask for Z Hair Academy students. That really makes me smile because I know they will be successful. I am very proud to be a part of this extraordinary academy.
Steve Lenz, State Beauty Supply DSC & Sales Manager
My education at Z Hair Academy taught me not only the technical skills necessary to work behind the chair, but many other aspects of cosmetology and business. The salon project specifically prepared me to open my studio; a project at the time I didn't even think would become a reality. On a more personal note, Ron's business knowledge has been the prime example of how I would like to run my business. Z Hair Academy is a leader in the evolution of cosmetology to strive for professionalism and they are raising the bar for the standard of excellence of the industry I am proud to work in.
Kari, Graduate, Salon Owner
The education I received while at Z Hair Academy was the top of the line. All of the instructors are knowledgeable and know how to convey their expertise to the students. Additionally I received education from some of the top company's in the industry including TIGI, Matrix, Aveda and L'Oreal Professional, just to name a few. My experience at Z went beyond just the formal education of how to do hair. I learned about making a connection with each client and the power of giving someone confidence in themselves. After graduating from Z, I went to work in a salon right away. From day one my employer was confident in my abilities as a stylist. I encourage anyone who is serious about being a hairstylist to go to Z Hair Academy.

This letter is in reference to our daughter's experience and education the last year with Z Hair Academy. After investigating several cosmetology programs with our daughter Kara, we carefully chose Z Hair Academy. When helping one of your kids make a life decision on whether to continue in college or a trade program, there is always some hesitation. Kara entered your program in November of 2006. There were immediate demands and changes she had to make to her schedule. Your tough standards and business practices were difficult in the beginning. As parents, we wanted to protect, but watched our daughter begin to blossom in your program. Her confidence and skills in cosmetology, as well as life, were extremely noticeable. We want to personally thank you and your staff for the wonderful experience and training you have given Kara. Your program has truly prepared her to make the jump from "school" to the real world. It would be very difficult to put a dollar value on the care, concern and preparation you have given her to go out and make a living. Thanks so much for the investment you have made in our daughter, Kara.
