Maria is the best of the best hair stylist in town and in the state of New Jersey. Maria does an astonishing job on my hair and on many other of her clients. I have never seen Maria do a "bad" job on any of her clients for the 10 years that she has been doing my hair. Maria does magic and I'm always leaving with my hair silky smooth. She uses the best products in town that only a Master Hair colorist can buy and since the fabulous Maira is awarded with this title she has the honor and privilege to by the best product out in the market. Coming into Maria's salon is like going to a Spa and relaxing your mind, just relaxing while Maria does the magic. I have never had a problem with Maria. Maria always does what you ask for, she does anything she can to see her clients leave happy. She is the most joyful person anyone can meet, go to Maria to get your beautiful hair done and ignore all those bad post about Maria because she's the best stylist ever!!
I love coming to this salon whether is for highlights, extensions or color. I always leave with a smile and PERFECT hair. Maria not only is a master colorist but she knows exactly what your hair needs. Her salon feels like home because you can walk and everyone is friendly. They'll talk to everyone, nobody is snotty or stuck up like previous salons I've been to. On top of all that I just started going to this salon and I was scared to go because I was tired of trying new salons. I just walked in, loved the friendly atmosphere and asked if she can do what I wanted and in little time I left with my hair than perfect. I don't regret walking into this salon and if you're looking for somewhere friendly and great service, go and talk to Maria for great consultation.
My wife comes to this salon and I'll tell you the truth. I love when she leaves that salon. Other salons use to make her hair as hard as a brick but here, I touch her and it feels softer than silk! I don't know how Maria does it but you keep up the good work. Every time my wife tells me she's going to get her hair done, I give her money and tell say "you better be going to Maria's Salon". Only place my wife and I trust her hair quite honestly.
Worst place ever!! Maria, the owner burned my hair. I went in for a touch up, she covered my highlights and made my hair green. I told her nicely that I didn't like it and asked if I can come back after Christmas for her to fix it. As I had already waited 8 hours in there. she said to give her an extra 1/2 hour and she would fix the color. This time she bleached my entire hair. My hair is now orange and falling in chunks. Big disaster! I'm unable to even brush my hair. Am going to contact the BBB. This woman should not be in business. instead she should be home caring for her children who looked neglected. They were picked up after school and were in the salon up until 9:00 pm coughin and running around without eating and cranky. Would never recommend this place, Maria needs skills, go back to school and get some manners as well as business skills!
She Did It Again!!
I just left this salon, and once again I am in love with the work the owner Maria has done. She is a color specialist whose work is out of this world!! It took me a long time to find someone who actually knows what they are doing, and this place never lets me down! The people who work there are super friendly, and professional. I would recommend this place to every woman looking for some change. The prices are great and the work is worth every penny. I have found my permanent hair stylist and will never change. Every woman should check this place out at least once and judge for themselves. I must agree with a previoous comment, this place WILL NOT let anyone leave unhappy!!
I have to disagree with the negative feedback. Especially the one regarding her "horrible" color. This is by far the ONLY place I have been to where not only the service is great, but the atmosphere is welcoming. Maria. the salon owner, ensures she provides excellent service and will NEVER let anyone walk out of her business unhappy. She is a master of color and she proves it in her work. She is a professional who is warm and welcoming and is honest about your expectations. She will not do work just to take your money knowing what you want cannot be done. Her recommendations are based on her specializing in color. I have NEVER had one bad experience with this business and have recommended many people here who have now become regular clients. While some complain about prices, I say you pay what you get for. Her work is immaculate and her professionalism is outstanding. I would recommend this place a million times over!!!
I completely disagree with the previous negative reviews. Maria has been my ONLY stylist for the past 6-7 years. I was referred to her for extensions and have never went to another stylist since. Maria is amazing at what she does. She is EXCELLENT with color. I get compliments constantly. There's I reason why I travel 25 min just to see her, and now that I've moved even further away, I drive 40 minutes for my hair touch ups. I will not let anyone else touch my hair besides Maria. She's nothing short of a talented, creative stylist. I recommend her 100%.

I am really upset with the service I received at this salon. I received a horrible, uneven, disaster of a cut from a sylist called Flaca. I was ultimately upset that the salon owner Maria let this person cut my hair knowing she didn't know how to cut and let me leave with such a disaster on my head. I will never recommend getting a haircut from this salon. This was one of the worse experiences in my life. Now I am stuck with no hair and have to wait until it grows out before I can go someplace else and let them fix the horrible job that was done at ""Design""
PS: They receive no stars from me. I just had to put one in order to publish my review.
