Z Studio In-Salon Educator
Before James moved to Tulsa and joined the Z Studio team in 2013, He was a General Manager and Master Stylist with a prestigious worldwide corporation. Since joining the Z Studio team, James has now grown to become one of our in-salon educators, teaching classes on color, cutting techniques and trends, and service standards.
After 16 years of experience, James says he still does what he loves most.
He enjoys listening to his guests, revealing the ultimate desire for each visit. Unveiling a guest’s needs and wants are what allows James to deliver the "Art of Hair" experience.
“Just sitting and visiting with a guest and allowing them to express what they’re wanting allows us to create a look, together, that’s best for them.”
Throughout James’s years of styling, he has had extensive training with multiple high-end color lines. He has attended numerous advance training certifications and opportunities emphasizing on coloring, highlighting and cutting techniques. James also participates in Z Studio’s continuing education program, providing continued in-salon training classes as well as premiere hair shows and educational training.
Although James has had detailed training in all areas of hair, he admits he thoroughly enjoys giving a great style. “I do love all aspects of hair, but I have a true passion for styling. Whether it be shampoo blow-dries, a fancy night out or making a special day that much more special.”
Originally from Washington State, James moved to Oklahoma 7 years ago. Enjoying everything that Tulsa has to offer, he and his friends never find themselves bored. As a huge pop culture guru, and movie buff, James is definitely the one to have on your team for Trivial Pursuit!
