REVIEWS OF D'Ambrosio Designs Hair Studio IN New Mexico

HIGHLY RECOMMEND Holy. Crap. I called last minute and they literally got me in within an hour, I was welcomed with smiles and if I wanted anything to drink, I waited maximum 5 minutes before I was seated for my appointment. Devonne Montoya was my gorgeous hairstylist today and I had never had anything done by any of them before. I'm super picky about my hair, I hate hearing "well it'll take a couple appointments" or "your hairs not gonna do that because" Devonne listened, examined, even took my Pinterest pic to the back to match it with the exact hair coloring she had, and she took only 2 hours for a whole job - I had 6 inches cut off, all of my root coloring one and ends touched up - full wash and style and I couldn't be happier!!!!!!!!!!! My color has a gorgeous gold blonde that flows so beautifully !!!

Marci is the BEST!

Amanda is Amazing! She took me from homemade blonde to icy snow white blonde without frying my hair off :) She is friendly and super informative! The salon smells pretty and welcoming! All the staff is helpful as well and really nice I definitely recommend D'Ambrosio to everyone!

Susan Carter

Always happy with my results

JoAnn Bell

I absolutely love D'Ambrosio!! Hector is amazing!! I definitely recommend going here. The prices are great and the staff is wonderful!

Rachel Bissonnette

Marcus, the owner, cut my hair and it was well worth the price. We chatted as he cut my hair, and he's been in the business over 20 years- and it it shows! I got a beautiful bob haircut and couldn't be happier. The salon was clean and the staff were friendly. Overall a good atmosphere. I'll definitely be coming here for any future cuts.

Lydia VanOrman

Love Andrea she does an awesome job with my hair!!!

mayostrategy .

haircut looks great. i came in with a mop top and i left with an instant facelift. they did a great job and took my suggestions in stride. the person who cut my hair was very patient and seemed very skillful. (the last person i was with at another salon cut her finger with her own scissors...

Cynthia Faunt

I had a great experience getting my hair done. The stylist did an exceptional job! I love the atmosphere and all of the staff are pleasant and welcoming!

Michelle Jimenez

OMG This is the best salon I’ve ever been to. Devonne dyed my hair and add extensions for a very reasonable price. I also called in a rush, two days later I had a consultation and four days later I went to get my hair done. They are also very nice and very trans friendly. Totally recommended

Debi Tracy

Been looking for a hairdresser. Let me say a good hairdresser. Lots of hair stylists in ABQ, not so man of the good variety. Brian was GREAT! Nice place, great cut and style. FINALLY! I'm a truly happy customer.

Liz Turjillo

Horrible customer service but what can you expect it is in Albuquerque

Jessica L'Heureux

Will not return. Stylist cut a hole in the back that could not be hidden with styling. Literally a hole. Had to have cut corrected by another stylist; will be a while growing my hair back out. Very unhappy with the stylist. Environment was very nice.

Joy Davey

I went to this place thinking since they are expensive, they should do good job. They had me go for a senior stylist which cost way more but they said the senior stylist could do a better job. Man what a rip off. I told them I wanted sombre style with color starting from up higher, instead, I got a barely ombre style. I had color skipping, everywhere. just totally looked sloppy job. . I paid almost $250 for a senior stylist, but I think maybe the junior stylist could have done a better job or perhaps I could have done a better DIY sombre style myself. She was a senior stylist, but she didnt know what she was doing. She was very unskilled for a senior stylist. She totally ignored what I told her how I wanted my hair done. I know she was skipping steps. I asked her if my hair will turn orange, she said no, well it turned orange. I told her to put a toner to calm down the orange tone, she was not even willing to do that, I had to tell her twice. to put a toner I know she was pregnant and maybe she was tired,but no excuses for doing a very poor job. after she was done with my hair, I had to ask her to flat iron my hair because my hair looked so terrible and messy. She seemed annoyed when I asked her to do that, but I was going to the mall, it was embrassing to be walking around the mall with that. she was very unfriendly and acted so annoyed. What a waste of money. Wished I could get my money back. Definitely not worth going to.

Tami Goltz

Camelia did a cut and color on my hair. My hair has been fried by my doing my own color for so long, but she did an amazing job making it look great. She took the time to talk and made me feel comfortable. Both times I went, I really enjoyed myself. She's super nice and a great stylist. I recommend asking for her when you make your appointment. ❤️❤️

This place sucks


Great service, my hair dresser was nice, sweet and took the time to discuss all the options and ideas for my hair.

Clayton Jones

I'm quite disappointed in the services I received and especially for the price charged. I brought in my daughter with a strawberry blondish brown hair and asked for blonde and to fix a line left in her hair from a previous ombre. Well the stylist said her hair was to dark to take all the way blonde so opted to just do highlights and then dyed the remaining hair a brown to help remove the line. She said that the sun would help lighten her out. I will admit the line was gone and the look of the hair was pretty with a great cut but it wasn't that much of a difference from the color that we came in with so why in the world am I being charged $180 to expect the sun to turn her hair blonde. I called to talk with the owner and well he didn't call me back but another stylist did who was next to us and said that because of the strawberry blonde color they couldn't go blonde and had to go darker so that we can come back next time and take her hair blonde. That just didn't make sense to me.

Melissa Hernandez

Marcus is professional, he does amazing hair! Love it!

Sasha Sokolowski

I have been going to this salon pretty much since it opened and I would never go anywhere else. I have referred all of my friends here as well. Chris Babb is a hair genius and the entire staff is great. Very cute decor as well. Definitely the best in the state.

More Than Rubies

Love hector! I have curly hair and he always cuts just enough. He also does beautiful blowouts.

V. Chavez

Just had my hair done by Natalie and I LOVE IT!! I'm always nervous to try a new salon/stylist - but Natalie listened to what I wanted, didn't cut too much, and gave me BEAUTIFUL highlights to add dimension to my dark hair. I've had so many compliments on my hair!! - I'll DEFINITELY be back!

Jennifer Ferreira

D'Ambrosio Design Hair Studio is amazing! Both my husband and I get our hair done and love all of the products they have to offer. They now offering Bare Minerals make up which I'll be taking advantage of. It's now a one stop shop for hair and makeup!

Donna Simmons

This is a wonderful salon. The stylists and staff are very friendly, knowledgeable and service driven. My stylist Natalie cut the most amazing stacked bob. She listened carefully and explained what she would be doing with my hair. I have curly hair and she cut it dry to make sure it would look just right. She also made great product recommendations. Couldn't be happier.


Oh my goodness!!! I loved my experience here so much! Holly was so sweet and considerate. I was very nervous but it turned out so much better than I could've ever dreamt! I have received so many compliments and it's only been the first day! Thank u guys so much for the wonderful experience, atmosphere, care and attention.

Jerri Numkena

Very professional, check in was very helpful. My stylist,Katrina Martinez, was a great help when deciding as to what type of cut would compliment my facial features. They do styling, and hair coloring also. I would definitely go back to this place and recommend to others looking for a great service and helpful hair styling tips.

Carolyne M Gonzales

So I wanted my hair all blonde. And I gave the person the formula how I wanted my hair. Of course I understand if they don’t have the exact formula, I wanted all blond I showed the professional a picture of the color I wanted she said “ok let’s make it like that we can do it” next thing I noticed, she was just doing highlights, that’s not what I wanted at ALL. Do for your client what they want is not what the professional wants. I’m paying you to do a good job of my hair and how i want it. This place sucks lol she always missed some part of my hair roots? Disappointing stylist. She’s only been there for 3 in half years. Not happy with it. Denver Colorado stylist are better then this pinchi place. Very upset about my hair, but whatever I’ll deal with it for a few months and actually have someone who follows how I want my hair?

Corinne Clark

Amanda is amazing! She convinced me to try balayage highlights a year ago, and has kept them looking amazing since! She's also given me a great haircut every time, always listening to my requests and making helpful suggestions. The salon is also nicely decorated and everyone is friendly.

Lisa Taj McCellon

I cannot believe my hair! Amazing, gorgeous, sexy, hot hot hot!! My husband can't get enough of it. Chris Babb is the best stylist EVER. And Marcus D'Ambrosio, too! WOW. I have thinning, very fine curly hair. Chris somehow makes me look like a red hot blonde bombshell with big, full, long luscious hair. Every day is a good hair day now. The salon is centrally located and extremely stylish. Even the shampoo chairs are fancy! They're little recliners! I love just being in the salon. Everyone treats you like royalty when you are there. And they are all such wonderful, kind people! I've been going to Chris every month for almost a year. I won't go anywhere else. Client for life! Call them. You won't be disappointed.

Andrea Delgado

I cant say enough nice things about this salon. I am the MOST particular person when it comes to my hair, I have very long and thick hair so finding a stylist that can master a cut has been a lifelong journey for me. Marcus did an amazing job on the cut and Angie's color was beautiful, I couldn't be more pleased everyone is very professional and nice! Would definitely recommend.

Kelly Rzendzian

Great new salon! Just got highlights and lowlights from Marcus and it is the best color I've ever had. He always gives a great cut and knows how to compliment facial features. Salon has a beautiful interior - very clean and chic. Staff is friendly and they sell a huge selection of Bumble and Bumble products. I highly recommend D'Ambrosio Designs for anyone who wants great hair and a great experience!

Lexi Ulibarri

Nicest place I've been to. The staff are really nice and the place is gorgeously decorated. I went from blonde to a dark brownish red. I love the way it came out thanks to Amanda. She was really nice. I'm sad that Holly is no longer with this place, she was super nice and had great suggestions. But nonetheless I love coming here and will continue to come. I always get compliments on my hair after coming here. Highly recommend! :)

Carrie Dada

Definitely made my hair look amazing. I had Amanda and she really knew what she was doing. Highlighted my hair and toned it wonderfully. She also styled it very cute.

Amber M

I made an appointment for my son with the owner at 3. He called before the appt and tried to move it to 5. We agreed on a 4pm haircut appt. We live out of town and came into town (45 min drive) for his 4pm hair appt. We hit some traffic and we’re running about 15 minutes late. I called at 3:30 to tell them this. They put me on hold and asked the owner if this would be ok. He said yes so we continued to town. We get here (at 4:15 on the dot) and are informed that the owner left. It took us almost an hour to come into town for nothing. My son leaves town tomorrow. Trying to find a reputable hair salon to cut his hair at 430pm on a Saturday is not going to happen now. We wasted an entire day we could have otherwise called or gone to gone a different salon who cares about its customers. We put all our faith into this establishment who proved to be unreliable and untrustworthy. If you are thinking about getting your hair done here I would look elsewhere... you will probably be rescheduled (if you’re lucky) and disappointed.

Alyssa Metoyer

D'Ambrosio Designs Hair Studio is amazing and the very definition of what and how a Hair Studio should be and operate like. Allan did such a great job with taking my hair from long to very short. I have never loved a short hair cut as much as I love this one. None in the past even compare. He even showed me how I could style it and what I needed to use to achieve the look I wanted. The whole experience was great because even though I was just a walk-in they made me feel comfortable being there right away. I will never go anywhere else to get my hair cut ever again. The shop is beautiful, the atmosphere is great and the stylist are super nice. There is no comparison in town.

Laura Garcia

Amber is the best!

pamela meyers

I found DAmbrosio Hair Studio on Google and Yelp. I liked what I saw on line and Loved the experience I had for my appointment. It is exactly the type of chic unique hair studio I was looking for. Camelia gave me a great hair cut and style. I will definitely return.

Roberta Pillado

Respect what ask for. Patience

Samantha Sanchez

I loved Bryan and I love my hair but the bad thing is my bangs are crooked lol but everything is ok if u can fix them and or refund me that would be great to never had my hair done professionally but Bryan did a good job and calmed my fears

MGM 1522

Everyone is amazing especially Marcus love my hair every time

Brooke Kaci

I had such a great experience here! Katrina cut my hair beautifully and fixed my layers exactly the way I wanted them! Everyone was so welcoming. I will be back. If you’re debating on what salon to go to, GO HERE! :)

Judy Steele

Amanda is fabulous. Make an appointment today.

Vancellen Sturgeon

Marcus' shop is beautiful. He is a great hair artist.

Armida Avila

I loved how Hector cut my hair in layers. He did an amazing job. Thank you.


Natalie is great and friendly !!

Kristina Blakney

Marcus is an amazing stylist, I have been going to him for years. He really listens to what I want while suggesting fun and new ideas, but never forcing them on me. I love his new salon, it is chic and modern while also having warm and friendly vibe.

Cynthia Pino

I had went in with my sister because she had an appointment. I had actually been to another salon a couple of days before, that messed up my hair. I wanted my hair a Carmel color and they had died my hair orangish redish color. I was upset and sat there and just asked this lady for advice. And she seemed to know what she was talking about on how to fix it. So thank god she had a cancellation she was able to get me in. Her name was Amber and she dyed my hair and she really knew what she was doing. I loved my hair and I didn't feel miserable no more. I just wanted to thank her for everything and I will be back soon. And the person that did my sisters hair did a wonderful job on her hair. They all seem to know what they are doing. I will be a dedicated client that's for sure!

Dionne Duran

Amber is AMAZING! She listens to what you want and makes sure you are very happy with your look! I get stopped wondering who did my color and cut, she is so great. Very happy I found her, live in Santa Fe but will always take the drive to see her.

Sheila Garcia

I loved Amber's work! She did an updo for my wedding, and it was beautiful! I have very long thick hair, but she managed to get it all up and held in place. She made me feel gorgeous on my special day, and I'm so thankful for her work. It was my first time visiting the salon because I live out of town, but I'm glad that I chose this location. Super clean venue and friendly staff.

Erin Wilkinson

I went here after I saw my co-workers hair. She got a balayage treatment and it looked really pretty. I called to make an appt and they got me in two days later. My stylist was very quiet, fine by me I don't like small talk. Overall I was not impressed with the morale of the salon or the attitude of the stylist. I've not been to a 'hip' salon before. The atmosphere was very catty and lacked depth. Perhaps I'm just too old fashioned to appreciate it. The balayage took about 90 minutes. My stylist asked if I wanted to cut and style my hair, I said yes. She blow dried and curled the top layer of my hair only - I left with wet hair underneath. I told her I wanted a trim and she only trimmed the back bottom layer. Throughout this whole experience I felt like I was an inconvenience, like she just wanted to be done with me. I've never had anything like this done to my hair, so I can't compare it to another salon, I can't say what the quality of the balayage is, but I do like it. The whole experience overall has left a bad taste in my mouth. I feel that the work and morale was half ass. I suggest looking for another salon if a human connection is something that is important to you.

Monique Le Febre

My niece paid $180 for a job that was not done. Wants her to go back for more "sessions" really!?! I can't believe this is a way people do business.

Shannon Llamas

Abigail Wignarajah

Best cuts and colors I have ever had. Andrea is a miracle worker! The first time I went, I had hair severely damaged by a different salon. Andrea went to work and by the end, I had hair instead of straw on my head. Amazing.

Jonathan Compton

Marcus did a perfect job styling my quasi-mullet into the perfect balance. He thinned out my hair without butchering it do it can grow out long in a more balanced way. The place is beautifully decorated as well. a real oasis in a busy day!

Aspen Harding

This shop was amazing! They got me in on short notice and produced amazing results! My hair was completely pink and they helped me get it to blonde. It took 4 1/2 hours but they were happy to do it for me! Getting colored hair to blonde is not an easy task, but they did it flawlessly and I absolutely love the result. They gave me samples of products to take home with me, which has helped a ton with the reconstruction of my hair. Every employee that I saw/met was energetic and happy to be at work. The shop is aesthetically pleasing and quite calming. Overall, I would highly recommend this shop!!

Briana Chavez

My stylist moved and I needed one quick. They took me and my daughter as a walk in. Hector and Amanda were both so nice and did an amazing job. This will be our home salon from now on.

Janet MartinezTena

The atmosphere is amazing! My stylist Camelia G. Had my hair glowing after!! Love, love, love! Check this place out if you need a beautiful look & uplifted day!

Monica Lujan

I went to get a color the color didnt get and they wanted to blame that I colored my hair one yr ago.Its a good place but some of the girls are not very nice its a snooty atmosphere

Remi DiBona

I've been here a few times and each time my visits are excellent. The first visit was with the very sweet and talented Devonne who did a great job on color which was a combination of dark brown and burgundy. I would go back to her because she did such an amazing job and was very nice. My second visit was with the very kind Natalie. I was scheduled with her since Devonne was out but she did an amazing job in saving me from my last bad haircut. I went in with a hackjob of a haircut but Natalie saved it! Thank you Natalie! On my second haircut with Natalie, she again did a great job and without fail recommended a Bumble & Bumble product that I have found to be a miracle worker. This place is top notch in service, atmosphere and attitude, everyone is happy and glad to help you. I recommend D'Ambrosio salon because everyone is talented and very sweet. Amazing atmosphere!

Marissa Pacheco

I had made an appointment with Amanda to color and cut my hair. My hair had never been died before and It is long down to my lower back. I was looking forward to coloring it blond from my natural brown. Amanda explained to me that she couldn't color it the way I wanted because it would take too long and she suggested getting highlights and coming back for more in a few months till I reached my desired blond. I told her that if she did do highlights I didn't want it to look like obvious strips in my hair I made that very clear and she said that she could do it without looking stripped. In the end my hair turned out exactly how I explained how I didn't want it it was different colors of blond and stripped from root to end it looked horrible. Not to mention she didn't give me the hair cut that I was scheduled for. When she had finished blow-drying I couldn't tell how it looked till I got home and saw how uneven the highlights were. My experience while she was coloring it was so painful When my hair would get tangled while she was coloring she would just rip the not appart roughly it was EXTREMELY painful throughout the whole process. I called the salon after I got home and realized how my hair looked they didn't answer or call me back. I payed $175 for a highlights I hate!! I just want my money back so I can get it fixed. I do not recommend!!!

Ash Saenz

I came in here very nervous because I had a lot of problems with my hair, and this is the first haircut I set out to get that wasn't at Supercuts or anything like that. I used to wear a bandana or wig just to cover it up, it was so bad. Natalie did such an excellent job, was so kind to me despite my nervous babbling. She fixed the issues with my hair with ease, and did so in a way that accommodated my concerns and wishes. I'm so happy with how my hair came out, I haven't worn a wig in the couple of days since. Looking at myself in the mirror is a lot easier knowing the beautiful hair on my head is mine. I highly recommend her, and I recommend this place 100%.

Alyssa Garnham

Loved the cut I got here, will definitely be back.

Tanya Loven

The staff at D'Ambrosio is friendly and helpful. My hairdresser Chris is amazing and the salon is fun and comfortable.

Jacob Lopez


I love it there. Amber always dose a fantastic job.
