The experience I had at the Maria Grazia salon is the best salon experience that I have ever had! Alice created a beautiful balayage on my hair which completely exceeded my expectations and was worth... every penny. The service that is provided in the salon is also exceptional and I would like to thank Alice and Amber for being so attentive. I couldn’t recommend a visit to this salon enough.x (Attached are my before and after photos)read more

This time last week I was getting a new look from the lovely Maria. It was my first time at the salon and let me tell you I was not disappointed. From all the covid rules to the personal touches.... And being greeted by the lovely Amber who couldn’t do enough to make you feel super welcome. I was honestly blown away. I’m not a fan of going into salons usually. But I’d seen so many good reviews and pictures of Maria’s work that I just had to try. I was really nervous and Maria put me straight at ease. I find it hard to sit in the chair while getting my hair washed. ( back problems) .....WELL besides Maria’s outstanding work. This chair alone is a reason to visit. It was literally like being in a spa. Being massaged while you have your hair washed was definitely an experience. I’ve had so many compliments about my new hair even though it’s a work in progress right now it’s sill such a lovely colour. And in surprisingly good condition. My blow dry lasted over three days. I cannot wait to go back and get the colour we’re working towards. Thank you so much Maria Grazia Team xxread more

My experience at Maria Grazia was wonderful! The girls were amazing, so sweet and had every little detail taken care of. From the massage chairs and shampoo that smells heavenly, to the very talented... stylists and everything in between. I thought everything was perfect! Alice knew exactly what I wanted when I showed her inspiration photos, my hair feels so healthy and looks amazing. Amber was lovely and gives magical head massages 🤩Looking forward to going back for a balayage! Thanks ladies xxread more

Rang to book an appt and they requested I do a patch test which I agreed and they said they would send it via post. 2 weeks later and I still haven’t received it. I asked 1 week in as to where this... was and said they have sent it with the next batch. 2 weeks later still haven’t received it. I will now just cancel the appt due to the incompetence of the salon and procedures. They’ve lost out on a £140 a time appts with me as a customer and I will be leaving a review on google. I have messaged and just been ignored. Will be going elsewhere.read more

I recently discovered Maria Grazia Salon and I have to say what an amazing team and beautiful salon. I've struggled with a brassy hair for some time and needed a natural looking colour, and Maria did... a brilliant job!! She was friendly and made me feel comfortable, even opened the salon an hour early on Saturday morning to work around my busy schedule. The colour is still stunning after a month now. Really good service, couldn't be happier!!read more
