Connie McGrath at Veer and Wander, Marie Warden at Harper Paige, James Colgan of the James Colgan salons, and Jayne Matthews of Edo Salon talk about the value of education and the tangible impacts that Pony Salon Education made to their own businesses.

We had Corinna as a resident educator for 7 years. Having Pony in here (2009-2016) has been really really really helpful — I know for me personally as a hairdresser and for the whole team.

She taught me how to look at my client and see what is beautiful and bring out those little details, which has brought me mass amounts of success. She taught me how to move my eye to the detail. She also taught me how to take a before and after photo, which has been everything. I feel really rally grateful, really grateful.

I was also taught by Corinna how to style the hair really beautifully and to look at things even more carefully than I was doing.

Pony Education teaches hairstylists how to look at the individual client and give something beautiful and interesting and suited to them and teaches the techniques to get there rather than teaching paint by number haircuts and putting them on heads.

When Corinna moved to San Francisco in 2009 you started seeing these really great razor cuts coming out of (the salon). Everyone could feel a change happening.

It’s finally something that helps us! Not a cookie cutter technique of one thing! They are offering a variety of creative classes with a cool yet realistic twist!
— Janie Naffz, Owner, Argonauta (Auburn, CA)
I wholeheartedly look forward to classes hosted by Pony salon. Every class I’ve attended leaves me feeling inspired and refreshed. I love that the classes are intimate and the educators are able to give you the attention and feedback you need, with zero attitude. Worth every penny. I feel like I get more from these classes than the corporate houses and that the material is relevant and current. I especially love that because it is not backed by any product company I don’t feel pushed into buying things I may or may not need.

Great education offered for veterans in the business to inspire and rejouvinate creative minds!!
— Jodi Ninomiya, DEKKO Salon
I would highly recommend Pony Salon. I liked that it was somewhat intimate so asking questions was comfortable all around and the visual aspect was great at all angles. The instructor made sure we understood conceptually and visually. The class/course was well organized, so no lost time on the trivial stuff. I walked away wanting more! I will be back.

Take the best educators who freelance because they 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?
— Adrienne, Deeda Salon (Sacramento)
I would tell anyone interested in a Pony salon course that the teachers are to date, inspiring, knowledgable, and relatable. I highly recommend with so much love!
— Fiona, Hairdresser
If you are filling like you have holes in your skills or feeling stuck in same old thing. This is for you. Even if you think you can’t learn anything new you will.

Tell me when you wanna go so I can go too.
— Ckah, Spanish Fly Hair Garage (Sacramento)
It’s fun, hip, On trend and informative. The layout with having the “lecture” portion in the morning, followed by Demo and then hands on is a nice combo of information and visuals. It’s nice to have these classes to keep you excited and thriving!
— Lindsey, The Red Chair Salon (SF)
I would say take it, you won’t be sorry! Well organized & thorough. For hairdressers by a hairdresser.
