Expert Hands-On Hairdresser Education




Corinna was our resident educator for 7 years. You want to know what Corinna taught me? She taught me how to look at my clients, to see what’s beautiful, and bring out those little details— which has brought me massive amounts of success. She also taught me how to take a before and after photo, which has been everything. I feel really, really grateful.

Pony Salon is inspiring on so many levels! Corinna makes everything she does look effortless in a way that makes me feel like I can do It too! From styling classes years ago to the recent shags and mastering the razor classes I have attended, I have always taken more than just good techniques away... I have left with new language and confidence elevating my craft. I look forward to future workshops at Pony Studios!
