Christa Thomas - Creative Director/Stylist/ Educator/
Christa picked up a pair of scissors at 8 years old and headed straight for her Barbie doll collection. After giving each doll their own unique haircut, she turned her attention to her brothers’ heads and began her career as a self-taught stylist.
After formal training at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica, Christa landed an apprenticeship at Architects and Heroes in San Francisco where she would begin to build a loyal client base who would eventually follow her to DiPietro Todd Salon.
In 2009 Christa packed up her scissors and headed for New York City to explore the fashion scene working as an editorial stylist for some of the industry’s top photographers. In between fashion shows, Christa built a loyal clientele at Cutler Salon in SoHo that she still maintains by traveling every 8 weeks to NYC.
Happy to be back in the beauty of The Bay, Christa has joined her friend and now lady boss Christine Donahue in her beauty haven, Revery Salon.
She enjoys collaborating with clients both in the salon or on location. She loves sweating the details but also appreciates the beauty in the imperfect. Like good design, good hair can be simple or complex and it can evolve from necessity or pure whimsy.
When she is not doing hair she loves to swim, sew and would like to take piano lessons again.
