Recently we mentioned Wit Salon & Barber on the Barcelona Hair Academy’s blog. They were present at the Vermut Solidario event and did a great job styling beards for charity. But, who are they and what do they have to do with Barcelona Hair Academy?

Wit Salon & Barber is the official hair salon of Barcelona Hair Academy and it is owned by our very own Creative Director: Emma Kareliussen. Wit Salon & Barber has two locations: our hair academy in Gràcia – carrer de l’Església 4-6, 4 B 1a – and a super cute shop in Raval – carrer de Sant Pau 122.

Both the academy’s superstar teachers, Kyle Shull and Sofia Farnqvist are senior stylists at Wit. Kyle is also the salon manager.  They are all amazing professionals with years of experience in the hair world and very passionate about their careers.

Emma has more than 20 years experience in her field and she has worked all over the world.  She regularly collaborates at the New York and Madrid Fashion Weeks and with many other local projects, such as the Lost&Found markets and Primavera Sound Music Festival.

Kyle started his career in New York City but soon moved to London where he worked for several years in Soho and Nothing Hill. Kyle has worked in all facets of the hairdressing industry; including working with celebrity clients, on film sets and doing bridal hair.

Sofia worked at a large fashionable hair salon in Sweden for many years. These days she specialises in teaching and hair and makeup for events, fashion shows and bridal hair styling.

The rest of the Wit Salon & Barber family are located at the Raval salon. There you can also make an appointment with Javier Martin, Kristina Siljan, Marta Maneja or Linn Dembacke – all of who are equally passionate about what they do and work hard every day to make people look and feel great.
