In Her Words
  • Why did you choose to attend Z Hair Academy?

    When choosing a school to attend, I was looking for that special “feeling” of just knowing this was the right place for me. I had already looked at multiple different schools, and nothing felt right. I then gave it one last chance and went to tour the Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Overland Park, and as soon as I walked in, it was like a breath of fresh air. Everyone was so friendly and did great work. I fell in love with how bright and positive the environment was, so I just knew it was the right fit for me. 

  • What is your favorite service?

    My favorite services are globals or foils because clients almost always have a new look to them after I finish their hair. I enjoy seeing how much they love the new change; it makes me love what I do. I also appreciate that you can put as much effort as you want into them, and they always turn out differently.

  • What do you like to do in your spare time?

    I enjoy spending my spare time with family and friends, which sometimes involves doing fun things within my career. I really enjoy going to the gym and taking my dog to the dog park—pretty much anything to stay active and busy. 

  • What are you passionate about?

    I am passionate about traveling and learning what it’s like to live in other countries and cities. I love to try new foods and go to new places. There are so many things to see in the world that when I have the opportunity, I take it. 

  • What is your favorite hair product?

    Moroccan oil is one of my favorite hair products. When I use this product, my hair doesn’t feel like my real hair. The oil makes it so soft and healthy, and it also smells amazing. This product is definitely a necessity in everyone’s daily routine! 

  • What will people be surprised to know?

    People will be surprised to know that I am an only child. I feel that people with no siblings get a reputation for being closed off or anti-social, but being an only child has forced me to make lots of friends and be more outgoing because I didn’t have siblings my own age to spend time with.  

  • How would your high school friends describe you?

    In high school, my friends would have described me as ambitious, outgoing, very friendly, and always smiling. I am the type of person that wanted to be friends with everyone, no matter who you were. I really enjoy bringing people out of their shells and putting a smile on their faces, and I love to try new things anytime, anywhere.
