Z Studio In-Salon Educator
Dustin joined the Z Studio team in 2012 as a salon assistant, working in our reception area and assisting the artistic team with guest needs. After obtaining his cosmetology license, he joined our artistic team, ready to change lives. He has since gone on to grow with the Z Studio team, and now serves as one of our in-salon educators, teaching classes on color, cutting techniques and trends, and service standards.
The overall experience and value of an appointment is truly what it’s all about for Dustin. “If I have told one person, I have told everyone I talk to about my industry; I believe I can change a life with a haircut.”
“The one on one time with my guests and the level of superior customer service we are able to offer each person is what I fell in love with about Z Studio. You feel warm and welcomed when you walk into the salon, as if you’re walking into someone’s home.”
Dustin has attended a number of hair shows and education classes and also participates in Z Studio’s continuing education program which includes the Premiere Orlando Hair Show and education classes in Orlando, Florida. He also regularly participates in RAW: Tulsa (natural born artists, an independent arts organization for artists, by artists) either as featured hairstylist or assisting a featured hairstylist or makeup artist.
If you were to ask him, Dustin would tell you, even though he enjoys working with all types of hair, he really enjoys the world of color and shorter pixy styles. He believes that men appreciate a great haircut more than one may expect and has worked at refining his men’s haircuts.
The youngest of three children, Dustin loves spending time with his family. Summer weekends at the lake with friends and family have made many great memories, but Christmas with the whole family is his favorite time of the year. Socializing and being a part of community events fill a lot of Dustin’s spare time and he is always looking for what’s new to do or see in the city.
