mariadowling Salon is an award-winning Dubai-based hair concept, founded by Creative Director and the Middle East’s ‘Queen of Colour’ Maria Dowling. Since 2002, Maria and her team of internationally trained colourists and stylists have gained regional and international recognition for their natural, subtle approach to hair colouring.


 

SALON

mariadowling Salon still remains the Middle East’s only colour-specialist salon, with a hand-picked team of internationally trained colourists and stylists, led by Creative Director and ‘Queen of Colour’, Maria Dowling.

Designed to meet the needs of women who consider hair colour to be a significant part of their overall image, the salon, in Dubai’s upmarket Jumeirah district, has been carefully designed to create a truly unique hairdressing environment. Comfort and relaxation is key, with specially designed chairs, natural lighting and a unique one-on-one experience with the stylist, from initial colour consultation right through to final blow-dry.

Maria believes that women look forward to their hairdressing appointment more than any other treatment. “Clients don’t just come to mariadowling because they want to look good, they come to us so that they can escape the pressures and demands of their everyday lives and focus on themselves for a short time. Not only do we want our customers to leave the salon looking fabulous, we want them to leave feeling wonderful too.”

It is this unique customer-focused philosophy, along with the natural colouring skills of the talented team that has helped mariadowling become the premier hair colouring destination in the Middle East.

      I have been visiting the salon for many years and I'm still regularly stopped and asked where I have my hair done. There's a good reason that Maria is known as the "Queen of Colour"

      The staff is super friendly and highly professional. The salon is clean with lovely interior. I scheduled a consultation with Carly for hair dye. She put me at ease and helped me reach the color I wanted. She was very realistic in terms of the stages it would take me to reach the color I wanted. She also gave me a fabulous hair cut that suited my hair texture and my face. I highly recommend this salon to anyone looking for professional help. It's a bit pricey for a day to day look but definitely worth it for a haircut and dye.
