Zeta Hair and Day Spa is in its 6th year of business. Recently, the salon was purchased from Cristina & Karen who dedicated their time to creating a wonderful salon and boutique for the residents of Green Valley to enjoy.
The new owners are Jenifer and Michael Hossack. They moved to Green Valley in 2014 and look forward to continuing the success of the salon.
Both Jenifer and Michael have been around the hair industry for as long as they can remember. Michael’s Grandfather was a barber who had multiple shops around the Dallas, Texas area. He was a barber until the age of 89. Michael spent a lot of time at work with his Grandfather and although, he did not pursue a career in hair, he has a natural instinct for the business.
Jenifer also has family in the salon business and can remember practically living in her aunt’s beauty salon in Northern California. In 2006, she turned her childhood play into a career by attending San Diego Beauty Academy. There she studied Cosmetology and was on the Design Team which offered advanced education and volunteer opportunities to further her potential.
After graduating, Jen worked as an apprentice at Detour Salon in Encinitas, Ca. There she attended weekly classes for cut & color techniques and assisted many seasoned stylists for a year.
Next she went out on her own for a year and worked at a couple of different salons in the San Diego area before deciding to move to Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
There she was able to work at Frost Salon, which was voted one of the top 100 salons, two years in a row by ELLE Magazine. She was also given the opportunity to be a part of the destination wedding business that is very popular to the area of Jackson Hole. Working with top wedding planner Elizabeth Kelleher www.inanyeventjh.com and fantastic photographers like Carrie Patterson www.carriepattersonphotography.com (who also does photography in Scottsdale, Arizona) was a wonderful experience. She hopes to be able to continue to serve the wedding industry here in Arizona.
After working at Frost for four years, Jenifer decided to start her independent stylist business at Champù salon in Jackson Hole, which was also voted one of the top 100 salons by ELLE Magazine. She continued there for a year, during which time she married Michael and decided to move to Dallas, Texas.
Jenifer and Michael settled in McKinney, a cute suburb of North Dallas. There Jenifer worked at Evolve Hair Studio, an AVEDA salon. She learned the AVEDA spa techniques and cemented her passion for natural products that are safe for the environment as well as the client.
After living in Texas for a year, The Hossacks decided to make one more move to the Green Valley area to be closer to Michael’s two, young daughters and Jen’s family in California. They immediately fell in love with the weather and outdoor activities that Arizona offers.
Jen started working at Zeta shortly after their move. Purchasing the salon was a wonderful way to commit to the area and community.
The Hossacks are looking forward to working with our wonderful team of talented stylists and spa service providers to bring you the best in hair care, skin care and bodywork. Please feel free to stop in and take a look around anytime!
