About the Educators
Corinna Hernandez learned early in her hairdressing career that she had a talent and passion for education. She naturally gravitated to teaching in her first salon as their network educator for Bumble & Bumble. She kept learning from several educators, taught at the House of Bumble, took clients at the House of Bumble, worked backstage at Fashion Week, and more.
Bumble and Bumble acknowledged Corinna’s talents and relocated her to San Francisco to fly around to salons all across the northwest and western Canada to teach their staff on behalf of Bb. Corinna was simultaneously the lead educator at Edo Salon for six years, teaching razor cutting, styling, and client photography for social media before moving to Barrow Salon, also in SF.
Pony Salon Education was established in 2014 to offer unique training opportunities to hairdressers of all levels.
Michelle Snyder’s skill and vision are in demand across the country. But the first recipient of the San Francisco native’s coveted cuts was her little sister, whose hair a 12-year-old Michelle would practice on, having already bobbed every Barbie in the house. Their mom, a stylist herself in the 1960s, was Michelle’s first inspiration to pursue a career in hair and her first teacher.
Her professional training began under the tutelage of Marcy Harmon at the beloved San Francisco salon Cowboys and Angels, where she was schooled in both classic Vidal Sassoon technique and modern razor-cutting. Michelle continued learning advanced cutting and styling techniques at Bumble and bumble in New York. She cemented her success as a stylist there as she built a steady clientele of celebrities and began working for magazines. These days you can also find Michelle teaching stylists for Oribe.
