Ladies listen up: You can’t go wrong with Maria Dowling, and whilst you are unlikely to score an appointment with its namesake founder (her list is closed, darling) – the ladies that work here all have something to offer and the salon also has one of the finest tiled floors that we have ever laid eyes on, so there’s that too…
Maria Dowling’s expertise is colour – so if you are looking for a drastic change, or someone who knows how to do the latest hair colour craze/trend, look no further. The hair wash/head massage is also one of the best we’ve had and you simply can not leave without picking up Maria Dowling’s own brand cleansing hair clay, which has become a staple in our weekly pamper routine.
Our only gripe is the location, but too much perfection is a bad thing, right?
Insider tip: Book in advance. Park around the back (front parking likely to be incredibly full). Salon is closed Fridays. Ladies only.
