Hi, I'm Maria. I've lived & worked in Alb since 1996. I'm originally from N.Y.C. where I started my career. I consider myself very fortunate to have been trained in the technique of precision haircutting which allows me to be consistent with classic styles while having a creative flare. I also developed a love for the art of hair coloring, which is always evolving to create new & different techniques. I have a genuine desire to communicate & connect with people. This has given me the gift of really getting to know my clients while working with them to create their own personal style. Many of these relationships have grown into long term friendships. People have shared & taught me so much. The opportunity to move into a private studio has made the salon experience what it should be, relaxed & comfortable. Where the focus is on you. Having great hair will make the start of your day even better as you step out into the world. It's my goal to make that happen.
What People Say
Maria is a truly amazing artist. She has been sculpting my look for the past 18 years. I rarely direct her as she instinctively understands what's best for me based on my style preference & life's currant situation. Recently, I bumped my schedule up from 4 weeks to 3 weeks so that I always look my best when visiting with my clients.
Maria has cut my hair for more than 16 years. I would not let anyone else touch it! She is warm, caring & very skilled, especially with my unusually thick hair. She is never rushed & a true perfectionist. I recommend her heartily.
My husband & I have been going to Maria for over 15 years. In that time our family has grown to include 2 children, they now see Maria too. She always gives us her complete attention & takes the time to understand what look we want. She listens & advises us taking into account our face shape, hair color & what maintenance will be needed. Maria's knowledge of hair care, artistry in cuts & color as well as her endearing friendship will keep us coming back!
Stacey & Gerald H.
Maria has colored my hair for many years. I have always been happy with the way she cares for me. If I change my mind about the color I want, she listens well & puts together a good combination of colors to give me what I'm envisioning. She is an awesome person-diligent, conscientious & caring. Just a good human. Check her out!! Jodi H.
