    I’m reading some of these posts in disbelief...

    The only salon i will visit is Marias in Dubai and thats purely on the basis of having my hair done by either Charlotte or Maxine both girls are in their 20's but I think you forget hairdressers start training at the age of 15 also you do have to be careful visiting a hair salon being in dubai where most hairdressers are not qulified....

    I visited this salon in december 2010 for a cut and blow dry with a "senior Stylist". I asked for an appointment with Maria but was told that she was only taking appointments for existing clients!! ! I told them that I really wanted a hairdresser with a lot of experience, so i was recommended someone else who was a" senior stylist", but when I went for my appointment I was disappointed as she was only 20 years old and in my opinion didn't have that much experience, I felt she didn't have the confidence and experience to know what I wanted even thought we had a long consultation. I left feeling rather disappointed at the result of the cut and blow dry as it didn't look any different to when I went in!! It was expensive for what I got and will not be going back. I have since emailed the salon twice, directly to Maria but never had a reply, which is not very professional considering she says that clients feed back is like golddust!! I will be trying somewhere else and asking more questions next time!!

    Hi there, all I can say I had the best experience ever at Maria Dowling.
    As I was one of the ladies that won the hair makeover in Dec 2010 .
    Maria was a delightful and experienced hairdresser she was patient and warm and the atmosphere of the salon and staff were great ..I think they are reasonable compared to Australia if you want a great colour and haircut these day's you need to pay.
    Really that you cannot especially in Dubai .
    I will definetly be going back.
    Ciao Elsa
