I Love Doing Hair
I have been told that I am a “Hair Artist”. I consider it a result of being obsessed with the desire to do my job well, combined with my ability to listen, my experience and extensive education that enable me to style your hair with outstanding results. For 10 years I studied the art of hair styling…with the greats such as Paul Mitchell, Vidal Sassoon, Trevor Sorbie, Sir Robert Clegg, Scott Cole, Yoshi, John Dellaria, Horst, Jon English among others early on in my career. Utilizing that information and moving forward has given me a palette of experience.
I have traveled the U.S. and taught hair seminars for many different companies sharing my own technique which I developed with a wealth of inspiration from many sources and experience. Many of my hair photographs have been published in trade magazines and I have developed a wonderful portfolio.
Including mentions in Magazines Vogue, Mademoiselle and Glamour.
I worked two Spring Collections with a team in Paris for Nina Riccci and Balenciaga .
Meanwhile, operating a salon of my own in Boulder County. Originally known as "Barbara The Barber" and now "Hair by Barbara Salon".
A go-to for fashion minded women who want a new look or just a re-balance trim or just a well structured haircut. I specialize in Womens' Hair.

Barbara has been cutting my hair for years, both when I had long hair, and now with shorter hair and with many different hair styles through the years. She always goes the extra mile and does a great job. She listens carefully to what I describe when I want a change and then she comes up with a plan to accomplish it. I don’t know how she does it!
I LOVE my new haircut. I have worn it down more in the last month I have in the past 5 years.!

please do not hesitate to ask for the time that is best for you. Bring photos of some of your favorite ideas.
At Hair by Barbara Salon, making sure every client has the best experience possible, from the minute they enter the door to the moment they leave my cozy Salon is my first priority.
Please take a moment to review our policies to ensure you understand our operations procedures.
I am following CDC guidelines however because I cannot cut your hair 6 feet away from you because my arms are too short.
I ask that each client sign a consent form and for returning clients to sign a health check sheet and take temperatures.
After traveling I ask for a neg covid test 3-5 days after your travels before you visit the Salon.
I am servicing only the vaccinated at this time.
I ask that all clients wear a mask.
I am triple vaccinated and wear a mask, have a UV filter on the air system and an air filter in the salon. If for any reason you are not feeling well please rescheduled your appointment. I leave some time between clients to sanitize after each visit.
If you have any questions, just get in touch and I’ll be happy to help.
