In His Words

  • Why did you choose to attend Z Hair Academy?

    I chose to attend the Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Overland Park because it felt more family-owned and personal than other cosmetology schools I toured. I was thrilled that the products they hand-picked for us to learn with were of professional quality, so I felt good about what I was doing and the products I was learning with. Their small class size made it feel more personalized toward my individual learning. Something that stood out to me was that they bring in the best-of-the-best for guest artists’ education and from leading brands, no less. It’s a Z thing!

  • What was your first job after graduation?

    My first job after graduation was working in a salon in the Leawood area.

  • Where do you currently work?

    I currently work as a Level 3 Stylist at Paisley & Stripe and was a Colorist of the Year finalist for the 2021-2022 Midwest Hairstyling Awards (MWHA)!

  • What do you wish you knew when you were a student?

    You have to be uncomfortable to get comfortable! Push yourself out of your comfort zone in order to find what works best for you and your talents. You don’t have to offer everything you learn! It’s good to always have options, especially in this evolving industry.

  • How has Z Hair Academy helped further your career?

    The foundation Z Hair educators helped me build made the transition from school to the salon seamless. Z Hair Academy has helped me network with top industry artists and brands and build life-long connections.

  • What do you do in your spare time?

    In my spare time, I’m either jamming out to some Lizzo, lounging with my cats, or practicing my trombone.

  • What is your favorite hair product?

    My favorite hair product is the Balloon Dry Volume Spray by R+Co.
