Maria Arias was raised and groomed  in the City of New York. Her interest in beauty started at the age of nine when she created the first ever pageant show in a neighborhood in her native Dominican Republic. While in college she participated in several fashions and dance shows. She holds a master degree in Marriage & Family Therapy and a minor in theater.

Her passion for hair and beauty became formal when she became licensed in 2001. Locally, she is known as a topnotch hair colorist and creative hairstylist.

Maria's clients adore her attention to detail and meticulous approach to creating the most natural looking color...”no one will ever know it's not yours.” 

Her compassion, understanding and comprehensive knowledge of contemporary and classic looks has made Maria a coveted colorist and hairstylist. Her biggest satisfaction is reviving hair that’s damaged and correcting hair color that’s been botched. Color formulas are based on the client’s lifestyle, budget and commitment. Of course, the goal is to create beautiful, flawless and dimensional hair color.

Maria has participated in the last 6 seasons of New York Fashion Week.  She's worked with leading hairstylist for designers such as:
