Karissa joined Kharma from the Academy of Excellence, where she graduated in 2018. She was in love with the beauty industry from a young age, and looked up to two of her aunts that were hairstylists and etheticians. She always knew she needed a career that would allow her creativity to flow and challenge her every day! She hasn't been in the industry long, but her portfolio is quite impressive already. She is a sweet and gentle stylist, who always goes out of her way to make sure her clients know they are her priority while in her chair. Karissa loves that each day is different when it comes to being a hairstylist, and she gets to meet some amazing people that make her love her job even more. You will find Karissa at our Oak Bay and Downtown locations for all your hair needs.
