Karina

Quick Facts: Karina was born and raised in the DMV. When she's not giving her clients gorgeous hairstyles, she loves spending time with her daughter, working out, traveling, and trying new food. Fun fact: she has 14 different ear piercings!

Beauty Background: Karina's passion for hair styling started in high school when she would help friends get ready for homecoming and prom. She started by watching YouTube tutorials to learn some more techniques. She has since taken the MAB Bridal course which helped her refine her skills as a hair artist for bridal and special events. 

Favorite Hair Products: Kenra Hairspray, specifically Volume Spray 25 and Perfect Medium Spray 13

Favorite Beauty Hack: A good deep green eyeliner will make amber eyes pop SO well.

From the Artist: "Everything always works out as it should so don’t stress it just produces wrinkles."

Testimonials

  • "We are so incredibly thankful for having the MAB team by our side on our wedding day. They were so incredibly flexible with all my million questions and requests.... At the last minute we made some changes that were throwing off our schedule for the day and their team continued to be beyond flexible and added another artist to our team. We are so glad to have gone with MAB for our hair/makeup on the big day and we couldn't recommend them enough!"

  • "MAB Studio made my hair and make-up vision come to life! When I had my trial sessions, both artists made recommendations that I would not have considered myself that truly brought my vision to life. This means a lot especially as someone who is not always comfortable in full make-up. I am so grateful to have worked with such experts in their craft! "

  • "I had a phenomenal experience working with MAB. The booking process was so easy, the bridal trial was perfect (a must!) and very convenient to plan with the artists/stylists. I loved not having to worry about the day-of timeline AND the artists/stylists all showed up early, which really eased my nerves. I am absolutely obsessed with how it turned out and got so many compliments, especially from my groom! Thank you, thank you, thank you! "

  • "We got married in May 2023 and I would high recommend Makeup by Ana B. I found them in summer of 2022 and they were available for my date needed. It was difficult looking for other hair/makeup vendors and trying to piece together the cost and if they were available, that is why I recommend makeup by Ana B! It is one stop shop for all of your hair and makeup needs. They will provide you with the best hair and makeup artists and it was a great experience start to finish!"
