Get to know Miranda Powell, a student in the Designer Phase at our cosmetology school in Lawrence!

Why did you choose to attend Z Hair Academy?

After going to KU for a semester, I realized college just wasn’t for me. I have always been passionate about theater hair and makeup so I decided to start that journey by going to Z Hair Academy to get my license.

What is your favorite cosmetological service or skill? Why?

Facials!! I love getting the opportunity to give people a relaxing experience. I’m very passionate about making people feel relaxed and taken care of.

What is your favorite hair product? Why?

The Joico beach shake. I love it because it adds texture and makes beach waves look natural and beautiful.

What are your plans after graduation?

After I graduate, I plan to hike the Appalachian Trail. After that… going to more school to learn special effects makeup for movies and theater. In a perfect world, I would end up in New York doing hair and makeup on Broadway or SNL.

What are your passions outside of cosmetology?

When I’m not in school I love to hike, practice special effects makeup, and spend time outside. I also do makeup and hair for the Arts Center theater and dance productions (currently working on The Nutcracker). 

What was your childhood like?

I was a dancer for 16 years at the Arts Center. I was in charge of my high school haunted house and it was said that it was at the scariest we have ever had.
