I started The City Coiffure to bring my extensive European hair styling and color training experience back to my home country. From Cincinnati to Milan to Stockholm to Dublin and back to Cincinnati, I’m inspired by each unique person I’ve served around the globe. I love to transform that inspiration into styles that are contemporary, beautiful and manageable.

Maria Martinez is a true professional. You will not find her level of skill, kindness, and enthusiasm anywhere else. She understands hair. She made sure I understood every thing she did as she did it. The one-on-one attention I received from Maria was something I have never experienced while getting my hair done before. I love my haircut! She was completely correct about giving me a low maintenance hair cut that looks great no matter what I do. It's changed how I feel about my hair! Her scalp massage is unbelievable as well! And she's changed my life with introducing me to the Wet Brush! I will never go to anyone else for hair care. Maria is darling! You'll be sorry if you don't have her cut and style your hair.

From the moment you walk in until the moment you leave, you have all Maria's attention and creativity. She is a true expert in her field; always attentive to your needs and has creative solutions for every head of hair. Her shampoo scalp massage is not to be missed...the best part of my day every time!!!

Maria did an amazing job on my hair. She does a fantastic shampoo and scalp massage and she is very informative when explaining the finish and products.

My former hairstylist in Italy was an artist. I tried several hairdressers in Cincinnati until I met Maria! She has world experience! She's great! It is a fortune to have her in Cincinnati! Now I don't have to wait until I go back to Italy for a great cut and style! Grazie, Maria!

I went to see Maria for the first time, planning on getting the same old haircut I always have. She convinced me to try a new hairstyle ( I didn't think there was much one could do with my hair), and it looks great! I am getting a lot of compliments. Thanks, Maria. -Tom Frank

Having lived in New York, Cincinnati and Paris, I've gone to a lot of salons and had my hair worked on by many good, well-trained people. Maria is by far the most talented hair professional I've ever been lucky enough to go to. She not only knows hair, color and style, she will honestly tell me what's a good idea, what's not and why. I love working with Maria.

I have had the same hair style and color from a box for over a year. I just had a baby and needed a complete revamp. I can’t imagine going to anyone but Maria M.! Not only did she accommodate with my schedule and baby, but she listened to what I wanted and made great suggestions. I still have my length, but a completely new style and my color has so much depth and will grow out subtly, which as a new mom is convenient! I highly suggest going and checking her out! -Candace B.
