Mateo is the only person I let touch my

Mateo is the only person I let touch my hair! I always feel extra beautiful when he is done..:) I have thick Mexican hair, which is a pain to get right, but he does every time!

Mateo is an awesome stylist!

Mateo cut my hair for almost four years while I lived in Spokane. He knows how to work with thick, curly hair which is a major plus in my book. My hair is not the easiest to work with!

He was always friendly and conversational and really took into account what was going on in my life - all while cutting my hair!

Plus, anytime I'm back in Spokane, I make sure to set up an appointment with him. A stylist you'll travel for? Yep! He's great!

Mateo is fantastic!

Mateo is by far the best stylist I have ever been to. He has done my hair for 5 years and I have never been unhappy. His personality, ability to know exactly what I want and his capabilities in styling make him irreplaceable. Every appointment that I have gone to with Mateo has been the best appointment. He can read my mind without me saying a word, his scalp and neck massage make me forget my worries and he is simply the best. You will never be disappointed with Mateo, make the appointment... you will appreciate not having to worry about your hair turning out ""right"" ever again.

Mateo and Department Z are simply the best

Mateo is hands down the best stylist in Spokane.

After wandering from salon to salon for years, unsatisfied with other stylists, I met Mateo. I have now been going to Mateo for 4 years, and I have never once been dissatisfied with his work. He has amazing stylistic ideas when I am looking to change my look, but I usually just tell him, ""lets do the usual"", and without explanation he knows what to do. Mateo is kind and attentive, and we are never short for conversation. Each appointment comes with the most delightful and relaxing head and shoulder message as well. Mateo does it right, and he makes sure you love your cut and color before you leave. Mateo definitely has the knowledge and expertise to suit anyones stylistic needs. Go to Mateo once and you will keep coming back!

Department Z is amazing too, a unique boutique salon located up the stairs from Zola's bar ( an amazing bar by the way). The salon is clean, modern, and has its own stylistic flare. The employees are talkative and extremely friendly. I have been to all of the salons in Spokane, and Dept. Z is my favorite.

Mateo @ Department Z

I've been going to Mateo from Department Z for almost two years now and highly recommend making an appointment with him. I've been to a lot of hair dressers in Spokane and after my experience with him and the salon i refuse to go anywhere else.The environment of the salon is very comfortable, I'm always very satisfied with my cut and color, they have a great staff and they're well priced. GO! :)

Mateo does amazing hair!

I am always impressed by Mateo when I come in for a haircut starting by the way he seems to understand exactly what I'm looking to do with my hair even though I may not express it perfectly. He has innovative ideas to help give me the best hairstyle and always explains how I can achieve the same look in my every day life! Plus, there is a complementary neck and head massage for every client which just adds to the relaxed environment of Dept Z. He is very friendly and goes out of his way to make sure you like your cut/color before you leave the salon. If you let Mateo do your hair, you will not be disappointed!! :)

Give Dept. Z and A+

Style....Color.....Zoe and the staff at Dept. Z are the best! I tried nearly every salon in town before finding Zoe a couple of years ago and have not had a bad hair day since! Zoe is outstanding.

Jessica is AMAZING!

I was reffered to Jessica by a friend after I commented on how perfect her hair is. I am normally very picky so I have been nervous about trying a new salon. Jessica made all of my worries disappear! She was so kind through out the experience (she got me water and magazines right away) and did an amazing job on my hair! I am not the best at describing what I want and she somehow knew exactly what I was envisioning. She is incredable! Run-don't walk- to Jessica at Depatment Z!!!!!!

BEST hair salon in Spokane

I've been looking for years for a stylist who ""gets"" my hair and what I want. After reading all the positive reviews here, I decided to try Dept. Z.

I am so, so impressed by Zoe; she asked just the right questions and then went to work. My hair turned out better than I could have imagined; she got the color EXACTLY how I wanted it and the cut is perfect for my hair type and lifestyle. I will never go anywhere else; Zoe is my gal from here on out!

Endless talent...

After a slew of boring haircuts in Seattle, I decided to try Dept Z. during a recent trip to Spokane. Michael did a cut and color for me, and both turned out amazing; my hair transformed from a bland dishwater-colored bob into the platinum short crop of my dreams. Cheesy but true! Its been nearly three weeks and I still have people complimenting me daily.

This man knows what hes doing - I can't wait to see him again!

Great Talent and Personality

I moved up from California and was iffy about sylists in Spokane. Then, I found Mykul and he is a genius...he is so skilled and meticulous. I've taken some big risks with him and they have really paid off. I have never been so happy with a hair cut and color. The staff is always so professional and courteous, not to mention a blast to hang out with. This is truly money well spent, you won't be disappointed!

The BEST salon in Spokane!

Zoe is unbelievable with hair styles and most importantly color! Moving here from Chicago, I went through SEVERAL hair salons before I found Department Z. This is the best salon I've ever been to. Zoe has taken me from platinum to brunette and everything in between and my hair always remains healthy! She is cutting edge, but don't be afraid of that statement...I've watched her style hair on all ages and she listens to her clients, makes suggestions and in the end everyone walks out feeling and looking amazing. You must, must, must make an appointment with Department Z!!

great hair care and style

I love what Zoe does to my hair! She actually pays attention to me as a person, looking at my facial features to make me look as good as possible. Different from many others I've been to, even some of the priciest ones in Spokane. The others working there are all nice, friendly, do great neck massages, and take good care of you to make sure you're comfortable with hot tea, a good magazine to read, and anything else they can do. I won't go anywhere else now.

Best Style

I had a great experience with Mykul and the staff at Dept Z and will continually go back. I have been looking for a new style for my curly hair for ages and Mykul was just what I was looking for. I don't think my hair has ever curled like this, and I can even wear my hair down for the whole day now without putting it up- a first for me! Mykul gave me great styling tips and offered that anytime I needed help to just stop in - I will never go anywhere else!

The best overall hair experience in town (color/cut/style)

Zoe has been my hair stylist for 9 years since I moved to Spokane. I was sure I would never find someone as good as my stylist in Seattle, I was wrong. I have never doubted her ideas on color/cut/style and have never been disappointed. I have people stop me and ask where I get my hair done! She is knowlegeable, professional, and always up on the latest looks. I would recommend her to anyone with the greatest of confidence. Her salon is a welcoming and relaxing place to visit. It is an incredible personalized experience!!

Best Designer!

Michael Thomas is an artist, a designer of hair if you will. I give him an idea and then freedom with the scissors. I always feel beautiful when I leave Mikul's chair.

Many of my friends go to Michael at Dept Z as well. He cuts everyone's hair different. Whether it's a trendy look or if you want something more conservative, he'll make you look and feel beautiful.

Getting married? Go see Michael! Hair is the most important appointment on your wedding day, start it right by seeing Mikul. He went WAY above and beyond for me. I started my day with Michael, and he treated me like a princess! Isn't that how we all should feel on our wedding day?

My husband actually introduced me to Michael, and his hair looks amazing after he's seen him. Send your man to Michael too!

Spokane's Secret? Michael Thomas!

He's not just a another hair dresser, but a true artist. Thank you Michael for always making look and feel beautiful!

Dept Z is fabulous for creating your new style

Zoe at Dept Z is amazing!! My hair has never looked better and the compliments I receive are wonderful. I have been to many highly recommended and award winning salons and Dept Z surpasses them all!

This place has changed my world. They make me beautiful and are artists. I have tried every salon in Spokane and will never leave this place. I am contemplating a move to Sandpoint, Idaho and would still drive back to Spokane for the team at Dept Z.
