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.

Our New Location Opens Friday at 9AM

Friday Morning at 9AM


At the close of business Wednesday, we’ll close one chapter of our story, and begin a new one, as we open the doors for our loyal guests and new friends at our beautiful new location, 3511 South Peoria Avenue.

We’ll open for business in the new location, in the heart of Tulsa’s Brookside District, Friday morning at 9am with retail sales specials, and we’ll be registering every guest who stops by for a $100 gift card.

We wanted to share a few things about our new salon space that may help make your first visit more smooth.

  • The new space is located in the city block between in between Sonoma Bistro & Wine Bar to the south and Doc’s Wine & Food to the north. We’re in the heart of that city block, directly between Aberson’s and Vern’s Props & Flowers.
  • Parking is located in the rear. If you turn off of Peoria and east onto 35th Street (at Starbucks), you’ll see the parking lot on your left. Although there is parallel parking available in front, space is limited, and all Brookside merchants share available Peoria parallel parking. Additional parking, as with most Brookside merchants is available on side streets and other larger parking lots without parking restrictions posted.
  • There is an entrance in the rear of the new facility. Feel free to use it; the rear entry will be open for access in and out of the salon during operating hours.

We’re working on a photo tour now, and will post it to the website soon. In the meantime, we invite you to stop in, see for yourself, and take a tour – you don’t even need an appointment! Our new location features a beautiful design by Karen Rebele, of Details & Design, and allows us to provide a more luxurious experience for our guests. Some highlights include:

  • Free wi-fi and charging ports for your handheld electronic devices
  • More comfortable styling chairs
  • A private shampoo lounge
  • A full-service color bar

Although Friday will be our first day of operating in the new space, we’re saving the hoopla of a “Grand Opening” for after the first of the year. For those among the first to visit our new location, we’ll have plenty of ways to say thanks to you for your continued trust and patience in our team as we perfect the best ways to function in our new space in the first 30 days.

We are so thankful for each and every one of our loyal guests who have helped us achieve this incredible milestone in our growth. And, if you’ve never been to Z Studio, we invite you to try our “Art of Hair” experience today. Ahead of your visit, view our Reviews on Google (just search Z Studio Tulsa), on our website, and on our Facebook page. We always provide a free consultation, welcome walk-ins, 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.
