About Kristine

Kristine Pinheiro has known she belonged in the beauty industry from a very young age. (She would style and cut all her barbie’s, babies, or anyone’s hair who would let her.) In 2005 Kristine graduated from Chico Cosmetology School and has been working full time behind the chair ever since!! She is certified and extremely experienced in Balayage, Ombré, Hair Painting and Color Melting. Kristine completed the Balayage boot camp with Lisa Hart Walker and Anthony Barnhill as well as the ABC Three Day Precision Cutting Course at Vidal Sassoon Advanced Academy in San Francisco. Additionaly, she has attended educational courses on hair color and social media with @phildoeshair and @allabouthair.

Kristine currently uses Affinage hair color line (a low ammonia hair color with advanced color technology) including their Demi hair color line Satin and has extensive training with both. For general hair products, Kristine uses Kevin Murphy as she has been educated on the whole line of products and loves their quality. If you are interested in hair extensions, Kristine uses Hotheads Extensions (with prior consultation). Kristine is also certified in Razor Cutting and has plenty of experience with the special techniques.

Kristine opened up her own salon, Hair by Kristine Pinheiro, in July of 2018. She will always continue to educate herself on the latest trends and hottest styles. Her business skills as a busy Hair Color Specialist are constantly expanding and advancing!

I love KEVIN.MURPHY hair care products!

Born from the same philosophy as skincare, KEVIN.MURPHY products are weightlessly designed to deliver performance, strength, and longevity. Moisturizers from Mango butter and Murumuru butter smooth the cuticles and soften the hair. Extracts from Peruvian Bark, Baobab, Bamboo and Orange Blossom infuse the hair with weightless moisture. Antioxidants from Kakadu Plum, Orchid, Lotus Flower and Desert Lime reduce breakage and repair chemical damage naturally.*

All KEVIN.MURPHY hair products are sulphate free, paraben free and cruelty free which is why I love using them at my salon!

What Clients Are Saying

“I was referred to Kristine shortly after transferring to Chico State, and I never looked back! I'm very intentional about how and where I choose to spend, and even on a college budget, I felt her services were worth pursuing. I've followed Kristine with each graduation she's made in her endeavors (without question), and through one move on my part as well. I gladly make the drive from over an hour north to get my hair done in order to guarantee the same quality, care, and precision she consistently offers. She's a lovely stylist, friend, and hair care professional.”
- Erika Dawn Elianté
