Salon Owner

After attending the Aveda Institute Denver in 2006 and falling in love with hair color, Megan relocated to Miami and once again to Atlanta with an invitation to train with the nation’s top colorists at Van Michael Salons. With a degree in dance from the University of Arizona, Megan became Van Michaels’ show choreographer and was involved in hair shows including Aveda Congress in 2008 and a small show with the great Robert Lobetta. Training under the creative director of hair color and being surrounded by so many nationally known platform artists, turned Megan into a color specialist.

Missing beautiful Colorado and her family, Megan decided to move back home and venture into opening her own Aveda salon alongside her mother, Jolene. In 2011 Zinke Hair Studio was born. Outside of doing hair, Megan runs all marketing, social media, web and salon direction. She is grateful to have worn so many hats in this career: student, assistant, educator, stylist and salon owner. The journey has brought so many life lessons that she will carry forever and Megan is inspired to continue growing.

Recently, Megan was selected to be a color purefessional with Aveda. As part of Aveda’s elite education team, Megan will be traveling near and far to teach for the brand. With a huge passion for education, Megan is so excited for this new role and loves the access she has to bring the most current education right to her own team. Currently Megan resides in Ponte Vedra, FL where her and her mother are in the process of opening up a second salon location. A beach girl at heart, Megan loves living near the water and is excited to bring Zinke to the beach. Once the salon opens, Megan will be busy behind the chair and running education for the stylists.
