About us

Hair Garden Salon

Established in 2011. I believe that hair really enhances a person’s facial features & like a plant it should be nourished and cared for, to grow beautifully.

My passion for plants and hair inspired me to open a salon where I could apply the knowledge I have to help men and women to look and feel their best with our internationally trained master colorists and by using products like OrganiColorSystem, a no abrasive color, perm & Keratin line.

Hair Garden Salon allows us to deliver a hair care where the integrity of the hair, the health of employees and patron as well as the environment involved in the process is our ultimate goal.

Maria Affeln

Maria Hair Dresser in BrightonMaria grew up in Brazil and began her journey in hair styling with her mother when she was 15 years old at Salon d’France. At age 22 she finished her college and received a degree in Social sciences. She started her career in Marketing and Promotions and travelled to the USA to pursue her dreams.

After many years of hard work, running her own successful business from home, marriage and raising her beautiful daughter Johanna, Maria was ready to turn her attention to her first love…hair!

After obtaining her license in Cosmetology, she began working in various up-scale salons around Boston, travelling to broaden her education and inspiration for the latest styles, trends and techniques.

During this time, Maria studied at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica, CA, at Aquage, New Orleans, at Organic Color Systems in Miami, FL, at Ikesaki of Sao Paulo, Brazil, as well as attending runway shows all around the US. Finally she had achieved her goal, she opened her own salon, the Hair Garden Salon, in Brighton MA. She always believed in making women feel beautiful and empowered, creating for them a style all their own while not compromising the integrity of their hair. Maria and her team makes this possible by using and promoting top of the line everyday products, organic color and Keratin enriched services. The combination of careful analysis and excellent hair care service will help to rejuvenate your spirit and your personal wellness.

Christopher Emery now Joined Hair Garden Salon to lead the team.

It all started for me when I meet Paul Mitchell in NY 5th Ave. He had a salon called Superhair and I shampooed for him not knowing I would become a hairdresser. Upon finishing college there was this gingle on the radio: Start at the top at Blains Hairs School, so I enrolled and after eight months I started my craft. Now I’m a hairstylist of 35 years of experience. I have travelled the world as a Trainer, Platform artist, Educator and a Mentor. I worked for Soft Sheen which is now Mazani, worked as colorist for Loreal, Roux laboratories, I brought Japanese Straightener into the New England area and also I’m certified in all kinds of extensions applications.
