Barbara Thompson

Barbara started her career in Sonoma County where she quickly gained a reputation for fresh, romantic bridal hair. While continuing to work as a highly sought after stylist in the North Bay Area, she took her vision and talents to San Francisco and made a splash right away, being featured in 7x7 Magazine as one of San Francisco's top colorists and Martha Stewart Wedding Blog. She brings new insights to her relationships with her clients, drawing from her extensive training in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Miami, and New York and her experience as an Educator for R+Co. Barbara is a specialist in transformation -- from hair extensions, color, cuts, and styling -- all custom tailored to each client's unique look. After a fun and productive two years in San Francisco and working New York’s fashion week, Barb felt herself drawn to create her own space called, The Pine, in her hometown of Petaluma. She returns to the North Bay, bringing new insights to her relationships with her clients.

Most recently Barbara has worked with editorial stylist and educator James Pecis, runway stylist Kien Hoang, and educator/visionary Howard McLaren. The latter paid a visit to The Pine in 2018, teaching a cutting seminar and sharing his insights. Hair mecca Mane Addicts has featured Barb’s razor cutting in an article and her work in an Instagram takeover. Beauty podcast Fat Mascara considers Barb one of their go-to hair expert.
