For the first time, I have managed to find a professional hairdresser that did cut my hair to the exact style. Even managed to blow dry my hair with no difficultly I would highly recommend this stylist.

I’ve been to many high street salons where the stylist just doesn’t know how to style thin, wavy hair. Every time I would walk out dissatisfied because my hair would be too layered in the back and too long in the front. Movement was a thing of the past when I tried to get my hair done in Colchester… …UNTIL I found Maria!
…Check them out – it’s worth it!


I fully recommend this salon after having my hair cut here last week by Maria. She took her time to understand what I wanted and gave great suggestions when asked. I am so happy with the restyle she gave me, and she took great care with my highlights to give a really full coverage. I’m do pleased with the result, thank you Maria!


I highly recommend models hair & beauty to anyone. I went to other salons who told me they couldn’t get my hair to grey as it was too dark, but this place got it perfect and couldn’t be more happier with the result. Very reasonably priced and would 100% be going back in the future. Maria and staff for the excellent service.

Maria really knows her stuff. Lovely, friendly lady whose experience and love of hairdressing really shows. I came away more than satisfied with my beautiful Balayage – colour is spot on and a fantastic blow dry too. I can highly recommend this salon – a real Colchester gem.


Have always got my hair done by Maria and she always does such a lovely job, Would never trust anyone else to do it other then her. Also I Love the nails that Regiane done for me, couldn’t ask for anyone better to do them. Defo will be coming back soon xx

I’ve been going here since June 2018 and i honestly wouldn’t go anywhere else. The best way to describe the atmosphere is if youve ever seen legally blonde, the hair and nail salon in that is basically Models Hair & Beauty. Everyones super friendly and down for a laugh. It’s more of an experience than just a place. I travel from Ipswich every 4 weeks to get my nails done and without a doubt i always get compliments on my nails. Maria and Anette are exceptional when it comes to hair. You will always be in safe hands here x

Only had acrylic tips put on once before and they were awful (and somehow took 4 hours)… so I was a bit worried trying somewhere new. But the girl who did my nails was so so nice and she did the best job! I am in loooove with them! Wish I could post a photo. Thank you to the lovely girl whose name I rudely didn’t ask 🙂

So pleased with the result of the Brazilian blowout hair treatment done by Maria!


To anyone that knows me/knew me in the past, knows how much of a terrible nail biter I was. People literally thought I was biting them 24/7. Well I haven’t bitten my nails in about 4 months and this is a huge achievement to me as I had bitten them since a kid. Today I got my very first gel manicure except for getting acrylics done in the past by Regiane at Models Hair & Beauty who has helped me along the way and would highly recommend.

Amazing as always, Maria is fantastic. She always knows what I want and my hair cut is always perfect, way better than I ever thought. This is my go to salon now. Wouldn’t go anywhere else now. Thank you for sorting my hair and mum’s out yesterday xx

I recon they are probably best for blow dries because my hair looked amazing after!
