How to counter Ahri as Zed
Post-6 if Ahri uses her ultimate for anything and puts in on cooldown, she is almost a free kill for you if you have your ult available.
Ahri is very vulnerable to early shadow based harass as she is super soft and has little in the way of tools to punish you for using your mobility move early on in the game.
Ahri's Charm is ideal against Zed when he ults her as she can just time it when he appears and combo him quite heavily. To avoid this either Flash behind her the the moment you appear, or use a W Shadow on her before you ult her and then R again and W bk
If You Engage on her and She Tries to R Away Dont Try to prolong it unless You have W&Flash Up With Ignite unless She is fairly low then go ahead otherwise Take the cooldown and R Back and Be Agressive Try To Abuse The Lack Of Ult from her

How to counter Zed as Ahri
If your ultimate is on cooldown and his isn't you must play very carefully since your ultimate is what gives you the edge in this match up, without it you are an immobile soft mage, his wet dream.
Always keep your Charm available if you know his ultimate is up, it is vital you have it for that at all times.
Wait for him to ult you, and then Charm as he reappears. This pretty much wins you the trades from there on as you can follow it up with Q/W while moving to create distance and every time he tries to catch you you can simply ult away.
Do NOT cast your E before he reappears from his ultimate : this is the worst mistake you can make. Zed reappears BEHIND his target and when you will cast charm, Ahri will FACE to the direction you are casting it, and so you will miss Zed.

Skill matchup but slight upper hand for Zed

Pre 6 trades should be even, but being Ahri you should be careful as you have mana and he doesn't, so he can afford poking with skills more often. Ahri should better use autoatacks and ocassional Q or W for harass and sustain, which Zed lacks.

Post 6 at even skill both can avoid being killed by the other, as Ahri has 3 ult charges for escaping Zed's Death Mark, and Zed has two shadows to avoid the charm.

Point is, if Ahri uses her ult, she gets kind of vulnerable as she only has flash for escaping, whereas Zed has his shadow in a 12-16 seconds cooldown. This makes Ahri sort of easy to gank.

Roaming is more risky for Ahri as Zed can clear waves and take towers easily, or counter-roam, if Ahri has used her ult in that case she should be an easy target for him.

1vs1 should be even at all stages of the game, both have good counter items as Zhonya, QSS or Malmortius.
