2-DAY RAZOR WORKSHOP - 2 spots left

Objective: feeling more comfortable with the straight razor

After this class, you will be comfortable and confident in using this tool as part of your repertoire rather than being scared, intimidated, or even just an admirer of the razor from afar. We will teach you how to use it, when to use it, and why.

So "Why Must You Pony?" Check out the Lost Hairdressers interview with Corinna for the answer. 

Workshop details and agenda are below the bios...

CORINNA HERNANDEZ

Corinna has been a hairstylist since 1999 and has been educating since 2002. She learned early on after receiving Sassoon training and advanced razor training from Bumble and Bumble in New York City early in her career that she had a gift of educating. It was after 5 years of operating a successful hairdressing business that she dropped everything to apply for a Bb apprenticeship at the world-renowned Bb University in New York. She then worked at The House of Bumble in NYC for several years before being recruited in-house to travel the USA to teach salons on behalf of Bb, where she continues to work, 8 years later.

Pony Salon was established in 2013 to offer unique training opportunities to hairdressers of all levels.

MICHELLE SNYDER

Michelle’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.

KATE SCHLICHTER

Kate Schlichter is from Washington but cut her teeth at the legendary New York City salon Bumble and bumble, learning from the best and later mentoring fellow educators for Bumble and bumble. She opened Lost Hills with a fellow Bb educator in 2014 and continue to service clientele on both coasts.

If you haven't visited Lost Hills in Silver Lake then you should consider making the trip. It is only accessible via an alley off of Sunset Blvd. and they only book on the hour-- giving you plenty of time to grab a beer or kick it with the salon chihuahua. 

Tell me when you wanna go so I can go too.
