Salon Review: Endless Summer Blonde at the Marie Robinson Salon


Autumn may be here, but that’s no reason to fear that life as a beachy blonde is over until next year. A visit to the Marie Robinson Salon in the Flatiron District can keep your sun-kissed locks looking fresh all year long.

There’s an obvious reason why Marie Robinson and her team of top-notch colorists are so popular with some of the most beautiful celebrity blondes, including Michelle Williams, Scarlett Johansson and Naomi Watts, to name a few. This salon has a well-earned reputation as the place to go for blondes who take their hair color seriously.

After months of too much heat, sea and sun exposure, my parched hair was in dire need of major therapy. As soon as I met my colorist, Angela Haight, and saw her vibrant, multi-dimensional color, I knew I was in great hands. I had been getting the same foil highlights on my shoulder-length light brown hair for years, and Angela provided expert advice on how to correct my color and update my look. She explained that the bottom of my hair had become too washed out from so much highlighting. She also pointed out that my natural color has an ashy base, so after artfully applying foils throughout my hair, she recommended using a gloss on my roots to lighten their drabness (soften the ashiness) and add pigment and warmth to the blonde. She suggested a second gloss to provide shine all over my hair.

While the airy salon bustles with activity, it has a friendly staff and a relaxed vibe. Crayton, Angela’s assistant, made sure of that, as he adjusted the bottom of my chair at the shampoo station, to elevate my legs while he applied the two glosses to my hair. When my color was done, Liana blow dried my hair, making it look smoother and healthier than it had in ages. She added in a quick bang trim, giving extra swing and balance to my hair.

I left the salon feeling totally refreshed, loving my new warmer blonde color and confident in the knowledge that I can treat myself to sunny hair year round, thanks to the Marie Robinson Salon.
