Razor Workshop (in LA!)

  • Lost Hills 2512-3/4 W. Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90026 USA (map)

Pony Salon is coming to LA for 2 separate events on March 19-20:

  • An Industry Mixer With Champagne + Live Demos + Gift Bags on March 19th (invite your friends and colleagues!) [tickets]

  • Two full days of razor education with 2 expert educators for a small group (comes with ticket to mixer) [tickets]

So "Why Must You Pony?" Check out for a quick interview with Corinna.  Revisiting the fundamentals is important to beginners and expert stylists alike. And why Los Angeles? Because we love it! LA has asked for Pony classes so here you have it-- the first SoCal Pony experience. We are so excited!

Take the best educators who truly love to teach, add to an intimate setting where you are free to ask as many questions as you like, see inspiration and demonstrations that open your creative eye and get your hands in the hair that day on carefully curated live models. What more do you need?

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.

You will learn how:

  • to hold your tool and where to stand
  • to cut a line and vary your results
  • to remove bulk and weight properly and effectively
  • to feel more comfortable cutting an entire haircut with your razor

Additional takeaways:

  • This class is consultation-heavy; please be prepared to spend time on making your plan.
  • There will be a strong focus on suitability.
  • Effective product application
  • We will share styling tricks and tips to have your client leave your chair photoshoot-ready.
  • We will also share our approaches to taking great photos of your clients for social sharing to help promote your business.
