Here at Pony Studios and Pony Salon in Oakland, we tend to emphasize the importance of a thorough consultation with each client. The end result is a hyper-personalized cut based on suitability to one’s lifestyle, hair type, and head shape. The effortless cuts are designed to require little or no styling, which keeps our clients coming back for more. Take a look at some select styles that can be yours truly that demonstrate some of these bespoke “wash and wear” looks!
