Experience + Integrity + Passion
POZA Salon is the creation of hair artists Pooran and Zahava, who met and fell in love in London, where they both attended Vidal Sassoon’s Advanced Academy.
Established in 2006 in the heart of Myers Park, POZA is a high-end and welcoming space where traditional and comfortable meets modern and polished. It’s where you can be YOU and we make every effort to enhance, celebrate and express your individuality.
Behind every beautiful person, is a fabulous hairstylist ... your search ends here.
Pooran emigrated from Iran in 1996 with a degree in radiology. She soon discovered there weren’t many opportunities to apply her imaging technology experience, so she took a different path and transitioned her longtime cosmetology hobby into a career.
In 2000, Pooran headed to London, where she continued her education through Vidal Sassoon’s Advanced Academy. She later headed to New York to attend Redken's color technique courses. After years of specialized training and hands-on experience, Pooran is a master in hair color and correction. She’s worked with many color lines, including Redken, Logics and Matrix, but Wella is her hair color product of choice.
Pooran is best known for her Short cuts. Her eye for detail and cutting expertise has earned her the devotion of her clients.
Zahava is a Charlotte native and North Carolina State University alumni who began her cosmetology career in 1999. Shortly after her internship, she traveled to L.A., Miami, New York to hone her styling skills. She then headed to London to further her training with the prestigious Vidal Sassoon Advanced Academy.
Early in her career, Zahava won two NC State haircutting competitions, inspiring her passion for working with students and interns and teaching them the skills she learned while abroad.
Over the past few years, Zahava has become one of the most sought-after stylists in Charlotte. Her clientele’s loyalty is attributed to her innate understanding of what looks best on a woman from a woman’s perspective. Zahava’s dedication and passion for her craft is unsurpassed.
