Alba Karabina

Alba discovered her passion for hair at a young age, but knowing how difficult it was to pursue a career in styling in her native country of Albania, she began a career in graphic design. As a graphic designer, her eye was trained to see shape and color in a new way and she uses these skills behind the chair every day to give each guest a look specifically tailored to them. In 2015, Alba graduated from Jean Madeline Aveda Institute. Shortly after, she joined the team at Architeqt Salon and began apprenticing under founder Alexey Kats. Since then, she has excelled in her career; she takes as many furthering education classes as she can and in 2019 she became a color educator for Goldwell. Alba loves everything about hair and thrives when she gets to do a full look-cut and color from start to finish. She particularly loves textured bobs and beautiful lived in color.
