Zev may have gotten his license over 10 years ago but his career as a stylist started at age 6, with a bottle of Clorox Bleach and the ink from a Blue Bic Pen. This chaotic experience, that destroyed his mother’s rug, and lead to a short emergency room visit, was the start of a career filled with experimentation and creativity. When it comes to the things, that he’s passionate about he’s tried it all.

Zev is the kind of stylist you dream of. Zev is easy to talk to, willing to do whatever it takes to make you happy, but ready to provide input and explain every step of the process to you. I came with five different pictures of what I thought I might want for my consultation, which Zev said was a good starting point, but asked me to find whatever the extremes I’d be happy with were and bring more pictures back. I spent the next few days like a madman on Pinterest and when I came back, we went over the cut, the color, everything, one more time to make sure we were on the exact same page.
I’ve been looking for a salon to do a big change on my hair for *months* since relocating across the country to the City. I knew what I wanted– short, edgy & silver, a big change from my long grown-out naturally dark-haired man-bun. I’m so infinitely glad I worked up the guts to decide on this place and call for an appointment. They recommended I come in the next day for a consultation. That’s how I met Zev.
