Master Color Expert/Co-Owner
Cynthia’s true love is color. A 36-year veteran
of the industry, she is a hair-color expert and
is passionate about teaching fellow stylists the color technique of Balayage.
Jennifer loves all things hair. A professional
for 22 years, she has specialized skills in
hair color, razor cuts and is a certified
specialist in curly/multi-textured hair.
Our story is unique. We began working together in 2012, became fast friends, and soon discovered our mutual passion and vision for the hair industry. We talked about someday owning a business together, a place that would reflect our passion and that would be a space for constant learning and creating. After enjoying success on separate career paths, we came together to create ZEF Color Society. We commemorated our shared October 29th birthdays with color-wheel tattoos, a design that became a bond of our friendship and the inspiration for the Zef Color Society logo.
