For Karina, styling comes as second nature. Give her a pair of scissors and she’s in her sweet spot – and one that she’s been operating in for 13 years and counting!
Having run her own salon for seven of those years, Karina is not only incredibly talented when it comes to all things hair and makeup, but she also has a fine-tuned ability to perceive the wants and needs of her clients – a skill that can only be mastered with time and experience.
When she’s not working, she’s hanging with her gorgeous two-year-old daughter, Koopah, who she describes as crazy, loud and dramatic. For Karina, her daughter is ‘her world’.
