The surprise of the night? Being upgrade to the front row once we got to the BOK Center! Ever seen a concert from the front row? Check out the video on our Facebook page.

Madonna Concert 06

In the salon, Madonna’s music was played exclusively overhead in our incredible sound system. We posted this harebrained (get it? …”hair”-brained) idea just over a week ago, and the participation was mind-blowing! We can’t say thank you enough to all 500+ participants who entered to win! See more pictures from the night below and on our Facebook page.

If you’ve never been to Z Studio, we hope you’ll take advantage of the $20 gift attached to your “Win A Madonna Experience” entry, and come and see us! A few quick tidbits about us:

  • We’ve been in Tulsa since 2008, but we just recently moved to a beautiful new location (just a mile from our original location); we’re now located in the heart of Brookside at 3511 South Peoria Avenue.
  • We always offer free consultations.

Color Experts Continue Education

As with anything in style, fashion, and hair, trends are always changing.

Z Studio has always believed that if we want to be a market-leading salon in Tulsa, we have to continue to provide our team with the tools necessary to stay on top of the latest trends in hair styling and hair coloring.

We’ve been dubbed, “Tulsa’s Hair Color Experts,” as a result of the work we continually do to help keep our team ahead of (and on top of) the latest trends. It’s a moniker we take very seriously, and one we want to keep.

Our continuing education program has three major components: in-salon classes for stylists and support team, out-of-salon seminars for stylists and support team, and our phenomenal associate program for new team members are all key elements of our success as experts in color.

We started plotting out many of the educational programs for our 2016 calendar in mid 2015. And as a result, just 11 days into 2016, our team received the first in-salon training of the new year with a visit from Wella Professionals Master Color Expert, Jenni Rea.

Wella Class 01

Our team spent the day today with Jenni learning new formulations (and applications) for incredible color results, including corrective and fashion colors. As a result of today’s training, we believe we can provide our guests with even more amazing color results.

On-going educational programs at Z Studio, like the in-salon visits we receive as part of our Wella Global Elite Salon status, will help us continue to live up to the expectation you have for us as “Tulsa’s Hair Color Experts.”

Wella Class 08

Thank you for putting the trust of your hair (and the color you wish for it to be!) in the hands of our team. It’s an honor and a privilege to serve you in our beautiful new location in the heart of Tulsa’s Brookside. If you’re new to Z Studio, we encourage you to drop by to meet our team and tour our salon at 3511 South Peoria Avenue. We provide free consultations, while we always welcome walk-ins, you can certainly request a reservation online or call to schedule at 918-743-5353.

A Look Inside Z Studio’s New Location

We should preface this by saying, “we’re not professional photographers.” So, you’ll have to forgive us for the quality of these photos, taken on our smart phones.

But, since we keep getting questions around town about what’s inside the new space, we couldn’t resist posting a slideshow until our REAL photographer comes later this month to take beautiful pictures of our new space and our team in action!

 

Designed by Karen Rebele of Details & Design in Tulsa, the new location at 3511 S. Peoria Ave. is rustic industrial chic: a mixture of steel, glass, tile and locally reclaimed wood that includes barn doors on sliding frames, used as room dividers. “I was so inspired by the Brookside location, because it’s lively, unique, historic and upscale,” Rebele says. “It’s a place people gravitate to, and I wanted this design to reflect that.”

Z Studio owner, designer, and color specialist Beau Barbee explains that the new space has “features our guests might not see right away, but that make a huge difference in their overall experience,” he says. “For instance, our new lighting system mimics natural light and so our guests can see their hair’s true shades before and after color services. There are more styling stations and a more luxurious, spa-like ambience so guests can enjoy true comfort and relaxation during their services.”

Z Studio will be having a formal Grand Opening party after the first of the year.

Free Beard Trim! #NoShaveNovember #Over

nsn_full_wide

Well guys…it’s nearly over! You’ve made it this far through No Shave November 2015 and if you’ve decided to keep the beard, at least it will be time to clean it up soon. Let us do it for you with a FREE beard trim at Z Studio.

Q: A free beard trim? What’s the catch?

A: There’s no catch. It’s totally free. Just make a reservation or swing by Z Studio (walk-ins always welcome) in our brand new location at 3511 South Peoria, and we’ll trim your beard for free between December 1st and 5th, 2015.

Q: So why are you doing this?

A: Well, it’s really pretty simple. The goal of No Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wildly and free. Donate the money you would typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle.  So, basically, we’re helping you “pay it forward” with a free service so that you can give your December grooming money to the No Shave November cause.

Q: Yeah, but what’s in it for you?

A: As a small but growing business in Tulsa, we can’t afford to write a big check to one of the No Shave November funded programs like The American Cancer Society, but we can afford to give our time and services. So that’s what we’re doing. And selfishly, we hope you’ll enjoy Z Studio’s environment and staff well enough that you’ll want to continue coming back in the future for other men’s hair services and hair care products.

MORE ABOUT Z STUDIO:

If you’ve never been to Z Studio, we invite you to try our “Art of Hair” experience today. We always provide a free consultation. We welcome walk-ins in our new home at 3511 South Peoria Avenue, in between Sonoma Bistro & Wine Bar to the south and Doc’s Wine & Food to the north, and you can even request your appointment online. To reach us by phone, call (918) 743-5353.

Finally, as one of Tulsa’s premier teaching salons with an incredible associate program for developing new talent, we’re continuing to grow our team of expert colorists and stylists. So, if you or someone you know might be interested in joining our team, we invite you to stop in to our current location at 3511 South Peoria Avenue, or apply online.
