One of the most coveted seats in San Francisco is in Michelle Snyder’s chair. The in-demand hairstylist opened Barrow Salon six years ago when she returned to her hometown after a decade in New York, and the waitlist has rarely dipped below the three-month mark since. When she’s not wielding her shears at Barrow, she can be found jetting to L.A. and New York to coif her celeb clients, including Sienna Miller, Zoe Kravitz, Zooey Deschanel, Karen Elson, Amanda Peet, Emily Mortimer, and even a small army’s worth of the Game of Thrones cast. But she’s the first to admit that real life isn’t always glamorous—from launching a new business with a newborn baby and battling postpartum depression to going through a tough divorce and getting acclimated to single parenthood, we are sure many people will be able to relate to Michelle’s honest and inspiring story.
