About Color Bar

Architeqt Color Bar is a color forward salon concept offering traditional salon services with a new approach. Focusing on the experience while creating beautiful hair, the Architeqt Color Bar is a rethinking of the salon space. Think of it in 2 parts.

Part 1… A salon with highly experienced stylists offering traditional salon services such as haircutting, balayage, foiling, styling, etc…

Part 2… A color bar focusing on color maintenance and enhancement which is accessible, convenient, luxurious or expedient.

How It Works

1. Make an initial consultation appointment with a Color Bar colorist.

During this appointment, the colorist will formulate your unique hair color formula after a thorough consultation.

2. Your color will be applied by a trained color technician who will guide you through your entire service, including shampooing, any added treatments and post color styling.

3. Your custom formula will be saved in our system for your follow up visits.

For follow up visits, if you are happy with your color, just schedule directly with a color tech who will have your formula and preferences saved. No need for another consultation, until you want a change.

During every color appointment, a colorist will be present in case you want to add some face framing balayage, change your gloss tone or select a recommended hair treatment selected for your hair needs.

Architeqt Color Bar was an idea years in the making. Inspired by the back color room in Architeqt Salon, an award winning salon which has become a Philly staple since 2012. The Color Bar is reimagined by Architeqt’s founder Alexey Kats and Alba Karabina, a manager and senior stylist at the original 10th st location.

With a desire to combine beautiful, simple and effective color techniques and an emphasis on hospitality derived from Alba’s appreciation of the great restaurants of the world, the idea for the color bar came to fruition. Alba and Alexey believe that your time at the salon should be an enjoyable experience. From making the initial appointment to spending time inside the space, your experience is a priority. And off course, they want you to love your hair.
