We are excited to introduce Patricia, a 2016 graduate of the Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Overland Park! While at our award-winning cosmetology program, Patricia received a comprehensive education from top industry professionals before graduating and transitioning to a professional position at Beauty Brands. Get to know Patricia and learn more about her experience at Z Hair Academy through the quick interview below!
When I was touring different schools, the Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Overland Park was the first one I walked into and felt at home. Choosing a cosmetology school can be difficult, especially with multiple options in our area.
The first reason I chose Z Hair was because they weren’t brand-specific. They brought in different educators from all facets of the cosmetology world, and the student kit can’t be beat! To this day, I still use the tools I received seven years ago. This gives you such an advantage when beginning your career, having stellar tools to hit the ground running behind the chair. They also helped me develop a goal-setting mentality. There is always something to work towards and challenge yourself with.
I currently work at Roots and Branches Salon in the River Market area downtown. I have been at this salon since 2021 and loved every second of it. I rent my chair and enjoy having a salon atmosphere and the camaraderie with other stylists. We’re able to see each other’s work and learn from one another every day.
You did it, taking the first step toward an incredibly rewarding career! Try not to compare yourself to anyone else; you are what matters. The amount of focus and drive you put into your education will return tenfold. I was a massage therapist for seven years before changing my career path. It was the best decision I ever made! You got this! It’s a Z Thing!
When I have been present in conversations about hiring prospective cosmetologists and they are a graduate of Z Hair Academy, they are immediately put on top of the list. The reputation Z Hair Academy has built is such a positive one and will give you an advantage when looking for your dream salon.
I live in downtown Kansas City, so I enjoy the local vendor pop-ups on the weekends and exploring the parks around the city. Occasionally, my husband and I like to escape the city and visit the mountains in Colorado or the woods in Arkansas.
I really like Kevin Murphy Un.Tangled; It’s a great detangler and works well as a cutting lotion.
The first salon I applied to did not hire me, and it was a gut punch to my self-confidence. I felt I had done everything right to guarantee myself a job after graduation. I decided to reach out to one of my instructors, and they reminded me that it didn’t matter where I worked; just GO DO HAIR! Start doing what you love, and everything else will fall into place. She was right.
