Michael Z. has been in this industry over thirty years doing hair shows and platform work for Clairol International. He has spent the last several years developing his unique style of sculpting and custom hair color.

"I have dedicated my life to changing the way hair is done. I have spent thousands of dollars, many years and took millions of pictures. I am obsessed over studying the pictures and analyzing how to improve posture, bone structure, double chins, skin complexion, aging lines, hair loss, big noses, body posture, head shapes, self esteem by helping people to appear younger, thinner, sexier and healthier."

Michael believes that the hairstyling techniques that are taught today are the same ones that have been taught for decades. “It doesn’t make sense to just pull hair out away from the head and cut it in a straight line. If you were designing a dress, you wouldn’t just hang the material on a person and cut it straight across the bottom. I relate the hair to clothing because it’s all material. The material on your head can affect the perception of your facial bone structure, your profile and your posture."

He continues... "That’s why I developed the Z-Cut. Finally, a technique and philosophy that work, so you don’t have to.”

Michael Z’s goal is to teach his Z-Cut technique to hairstylists around the world so that their clients can look younger, thinner, sexier and healthier like his do.



“I first went to Michael in 1991. I loved what he did with my hair back in the big hair days. I left when he changed locations, but returned several years later for the Z cut and color! One of my students told me the changes Michael made took 10 years off my appearance.

I've known Michael for many years. He is an artist . He is kind. He takes care of people! I highly recommend his talents for anyone!"


“I absolutely love getting my hair cut by Michael Z! He is such a cool dude! He’s an expert at cutting hair and making you look younger thinner and sexier!!!"


“Michael Z is so amazing. My hair when I first came to him was at an awkward length. By the time I left the chair I felt like 1 million bucks, my hair actually looked longer after he cut it then when I walked in. That might sound unbelievable but it is the truth! I've been coming to him for three years now! I travel full time and always book with Michael when I'm in town."
