Adriana Pinto knew from a very early age that she wanted to be in the business of hair; when she was a young girl, she was constantly playing around with different styles, and discovered quickly that she had an inherent knack for it. After launching her career in San Francisco, she moved down the coast to Los Angeles, bringing her talents to Frederic Fekkai in Beverly Hills, where she made a name for herself as one of Southern California’s premier colorists before making the move to Mèche. Today, with more than 15 years of experience under her belt and a highly specialized ability with regard to balayage, Adriana counts the sun-kissed highlights you see on children as her main source of inspiration—and it shows. The hallmark of her color is that it’s virtually impossible to tell it’s not natural. Always fashion-forward, Adriana also looks to the runways and looks from her favorite designers’ upcoming collections to get inspired.
