Mary’s Favorite Products

Mary knows all the best products for keeping your hair color and extensions in great shape


Mary is extraordinary at her colour! My hair was bleached out from a 3 week sun holiday and Mary was able to repair it and restore it back to it's glossy colour. She also introduced me to the amazing Olaplex product, that I cannot live with out now! Ernesto is an artist with his cuts, and he is so lovely when he works with children. He cut my youngest daughters hair and he spoke her her the entire time about subjects that only a 7 year old girl would enjoy! He is amazing! This team is dynamo. Mary also did my very good friends Blonde Hair Extensions, and they are extraordinary. If you need extensions or want a change, Mary can make that happen. I Highly recommend both Mary and Ernesto.

Mary and Ernesto are honestly the most lovely people to deal with. They are truly amazing and very experienced at what they do. I have gotten countless compliments on my Hothead hair extensions and hair color! As you may know, they recently moved to a new location. They now offer coffee, popcorn and they even have an area to charge your phone which is pretty convenient. Just recently, I was in a bind because I needed my hair done for an occasion but it was truly last minute but Mary squeezed me in nonetheless. She did a fantastic job as usual even under such short notice! They genuinely care about their customers on top of being truly talented hairdressers. I truly can't say enough good things about these 2. Thank you 🙂

They offer the best services and only use the highest quality products and never fail to impress. Mary has been colouring my hair for only a year now and I don't even see her as a colourist anymore, but more like a close friend. Mary and Ernie are the most friendly people out there and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my hair. With each service, Im always more and more excited to come back!! I'm so glad I found them!

Mary is absolutely wonderful! Her warm personality and attitude are only a plus to her amazing styling skills. Very knowledgable about hair, especially Extentions. The quality of my natural hair and Extentions have improved greatly since her taking me on as a client. Thank you!!
Rebecca Laughlin
I have been going to Mary and Ernies for some time now. Mary has been doing my colour and hair extensions and Ernie my cut. They are both amazing and so professional. I always get so many compliments on my hair. Prior to seeing Mary and Ernie my hair was damaged and I was very unhappy with the colour. Mary not only corrected the colour but was able to get my hair back to such great condition!!! I always look forward to my salon appt. Mary and Ernie make me feel so at home and I always leave there feeling great!!!! Mary is also the best at hair extensions. Her work is amazing!!! If you are looking at getting extensions , Mary is the person to see!

I found Mary through social media after having a bad hair job from another hairdresser. She renewed my hair. My hair has done a 360 since going to her. She is amazing. . Also got a cut by Ernesto which looked amazing. They are very friendly. Always looking forward to getting my hair done here!
Becky Rose
Amazing work! colored and blended my hair to match my hot head extensions perfectly! And the extensions are the best quality! I got 18" length of virgin Indian hair and fell in love. Won't go anywhere else and would recommend them to anyone!
Paige Oconnor
Amazing!! I've been to many hair stylist and I must say Mary is incredible at what she does, she's passionate about her job and has good vision. My hair is a tricky red colour to match extensions to and Mary manage to match the them to my hair to a T! Ernesto cut the extensions to blend in with my cut and I was very impressed. Definetly a 5 star for these 2 🙂
Danielle DeGiorgio
Best colourist in Toronto ! I come all the way from Etobicoke! Absolutely Amazing service and the best "HotHead extentions"!
Ciara Jocelyn
During my vacation to Toronto, I realized that I wanted to treat myself to a fresh cut, color, new extensions and a blow dry, but wasn't sure how I would go about finding a respectable hairstylist in the area, especially with everything I wanted done. Thankfully, with a simple search on Instagram, I was able to come across Mary & Ernesto! Since they keep their Instagram handles up to date, it was so easy to see the work they do and know it would be a perfect fit for what I was looking for. Unlike many of the salons I've experienced, Mary and Ernesto were quick to accommodate all of my detailed requests and let me not forget to mention how sweet they were in the process! If I lived in the area, this would be my go-to salon as they were everything I could've hoped to find and more! Thank you Mary & Ernesto for making me feel like I had a home away from home!!! Deff worth checking out
Amanda Santos
I have been going there for almost 2 years and everytime I go my hair feels brand new and looks amazing! they are the sweetest couple and do such an awesome job everytime.
Megan Ricthie
I was hesitant to try yet another stylist, but Mary really listened and she got the colour bang on the first time. I got so many compliments...I walked down the street, a girl asked to take a photo of my colour lol. I went into Club Monaco and another girl followed me into store to ask where I got my colour done. Needless to say I don't need to go anywhere else. Both Mary and Ernie are such a great team, so happy I was referred to them.
Wendy Huynh
I have been a client of Mary and Ernie for about 10 years now and just love them! I am always completely satisfied with my services. Mary is a super sweet and genuine colorist that gives great and honest hair advice. She listens to my hair concerns and always delivers. Mary introduced me to Olaplex and it has completely transformed my severely damaged blonde hair back to healthy long hair! Ernie is super fun and friendly. He creates amazing curls with a round brush that last! I would highly recommend both Mary and Ernie for all your hair needs.
Lisa Z
I was recommended to Mary and Ernesto through a friend!!! They are amazing and so professional. I feel so beautiful with my new extentions. I had terrible thin hair before I meet these wonderful hairstylist. A must go to.
Madiha Shehzad
This salon is like no other, besides the amazing service the most amazing part is that the stylists listen to what you want. Have you ever had an experience in a salon when you go in for one thing and end up leaving with the total opposite of what you asked for? Yeah, not here! Mary and Ernesto listen and give you exactly what you're looking for if not better. I have been with them for about a year and each time I see them it is a joy. I myself have Hot-Heads taped in extension and I absolutely love them. The hair is amazing quality and Ive gotten dozens of compliments since I've had them in. Amazing work Mary and Ernesto!
Venessa Bandiera
I want to thank Mary and Ernesto for doing a wonderful job on my hair. I came in to redue my extentions that I had previously done at another salon, which I wasn't happy with, so I decided to try this salon. I was very happy with the colour that Mary recommended, and it blended in with my natural hair perfectly! Ernesto did the cut and style. They are both very dedicated and give you all the time needed to make sure you are fully satisfied. I will be definitely be returning, and I will be recommending anyone who is looking to do extentions, colour and cut at Mary and Ernesto.
Biana Ninno
Thanks to both Mary and Ernesto for my fresh look! It was the best experience that I've ever had. Honestly, I worried that my hair can be burnt after dying; BUT they used high quality products making my hair look shiny and healthy. In addition, I liked that the place itself feels cosy with a friendly and nice staff! Highly recommended!
Lyaysan Akhmadeeva
Mary is the best Toronto colorist ever! She always does the best colour for me as I change colours all the time. Ernie is the bomb when it comes time to cut my hair. I highly recommend Mary and Ernesto. Call them today!
Janice Figov
Wow! Mary's talent as a colourist is beyond words. Mary proved to me that blonde colour can look as natural as natural. Even though I live in Vancouver, I will be scheduling my hair appointments here the few times a year that I am in Toronto (no questions asked). Thank you Mary!!!
Cassandra Cowie
I had colour done by Mary and I'm absolutely loving it. She did an amazing job. She didn't rush me in and out, she chatted with me at length before we got started to discuss the options and then talked me through the process. What a lovely, talented woman! Had a great blow out with Ernesto and left looking and feeling like a million bucks. Will definitely recommend to friends and family and will definitely be back! Thanks Mary & Ernesto!
Leah Logan
Mary and Ernesto are the best hair duo ever! I had extremely dark curly hair, and Mary was able to transform it into a beautiful honey blonde, keeping the healthy looking and the curls! Ernesto knows exactly what length and how much I need taken off without me asking! I don’t trust any other people with my hair!
Annette Gagaropoulos
Mary and Ernesto are the best. I have been a client for years. Mary gives me the best colour. She is so good people don't even realize I get my hair colored, it looks so natural all the time and Ernesto styles and cuts are the best. When I leave the salon, my hair looks the best. I get compliments on my hair all the time. Thank you Mary and Ernesto for taking good care of my hair.
Freda Baldwin
I couldn’t be happier with Mary!! Not only is she an extraordinarily pleasant and gentle professional, the results speak for themselves. I initially came to see her when my extensions done elsewhere were slipping out before a big event. Mary squeezed me in and saved the day and I’ve been coming to her ever since! She is so meticulous and I’m always leaving the salon with a smile. Highly recommend!
My hair experience with Mary & Ernesto have been one of the best I’ve ever had! I’ve had thinning hair for a long time and was looking for hair extensions for a family event. I randomly started looking online and never thought I would find a salon that was credible but I was very very wrong. I read the reviews and thought I would take a chance. The first time I came into the salon, I was welcomed with a smile, a beverage and friendly faces. After meeting Mary & Ernesto for the first time, it was like I knew them for years. They both made me feel very comfortable through out the consultation process and when it came to the actual appointment also. The hothead extensions were amazing quality and looked like my own hair. Ernesto did a great job styling and Mary was very professional and definitely showed her knowledge and expertise. She matched my hair colour that I currently had to the hair extensions. My hair has never looked this good and I owe it all to Mary & Ernesto. At the family event, I received a lot of compliments and no one was the wiser. The experience has boosted my confidence and I definitely keep coming back.
Samantha M
Have been a client of Mary and Ernesto’s for years and have always been thrilled with the quality and consistency of their services. Mary’s an incredibly skilled colourist (you will never find a better or more natural brown or blonde!) and I’ve seen her awesome work with extensions in my friends. Ernie’s haircuts are perfectly modern, true to what you request and grow out beautifully. Mary and Ernesto care about their clients and the hair looks they would like to create. Visits to them are relaxing experiences with a personal touch. Have sent many of my friends to their hair studio. Highly recommend!
Nadia Rosanova
I recently got hair extensions for the first time and was somewhat nervous about the process regarding upkeep, maintenance and potential damage to my own hair. Mary made the process of getting hair extensions very easy and most importantly was very knowledgeable about hair extensions since she's been in the business for a long time. She matched my hair extensions perfectly to my own hair color, which gave me the most natural and seamless look that I wanted. Not only did she re-assure me about how to take care of my extensions but also made me feel at ease that my own hair was not damaged in the process due to her expertise and long standing position in the industry. She also made herself available to all my questions and requests and I will definitely be going in to see Mary for a long time to come.!!!
Cleo Dhanpaul
After calling so many hair extension places, I called Mary and Ernesto. Mary was so polite and kind on the phone, answering all my questions about getting hair extensions. My hair is naturally curly and different tones, and Mary matched my hair perfectly. Every time I call Mary and she is not avaliable for an appointment, she always goes out of her way to come in on a day she normally would not be working. The appointments are always a lot of fun and reasonable price for an amazing job.
Katrina Kaminski
I recently had my hair highlighted by Mary for the second time, and I must say that I continue to be impressed and pleased every time! Mary is truly a pro when it comes to hair colour and matched my highlights perfectly to my natural hair colour. The best part is they look so natural, that my friends couldn't believe I had coloured my hair. Thank you Mary for my new colour- I love it and I will definitely recommend you to all my family and friends!
Morgan Dumas
Mary is an incredible hair stylist. I went to Mary for a colour match and to put in hot head extensions as I have hair that is varied in length. She matched my hair perfectly in colour to the extensions and Ernesto made sure that my hair lengths matched as well. Mary is by far the best colourist I have found. Matching and correcting previous stylist mistakes is not an easy task but Mary does it with a natural talent. I've gone to many different hair stylists and this duo is by far the best I've gone to. I have found my forever stylists!! Once you go to them you won't look elsewhere, I've referred over 6-7 people to them and ALL have been more than satisfied!
Jenna Mancuso
Mary is so good at what she does and has great service!! She did my first ever extensions, and she did such a good job at picking out the perfect blend of colours and putting them in. They look so natural and amazing i love my new hair!
Lucia Gutierrez
Amazing work! colored and blended my hair to match my hot head extensions perfectly! And the extensions are the best quality! I got 18" length of virgin Indian hair and fell in love. Won't go anywhere else and would recommend them to anyone!
Paige Oconnor
@marydinunzio at @maryandernesto hair salon does absolutely amazing #hothead extensions!!!!! I love how natural they look and how they make me feel!!! Can't imagine not having them now 🙂
She was able to renew my hair with the pot head extensions. They acted as a shield to protect my hair and I didn't need to colour it for a full year plus I was able to grow back my natural colour ! Great service and super friendly.
Lauren Hyssen
Thanks Mary for my fabulous new hair cut!! My hair feels great, so much lighter and a lot more stylish!! Thanks again so much
Morgan Samantha
I love getting my hair coloured, cut and styled by Mary and Ernie! I've been seeing them for quite a few years now! Mary does a wonderful job with my colour! My hair always looks shiny and feels so soft! It's never over processed!! The colour lasts a very long time!! And to add, she's also has a friendly and loveable personally! Its a delight to have my hair done by Mary! Ernie always give me a great cut and style! It's taken me a long time to find someone who can handle this big head of curly hair!! He always knows exactly how much to cut, so it doesn't look too big and crazy!! The perfect amount of layers! He also does a great job when I have an occasion and I want it to be blown out straight, it lasts for days and does not get frizzy!! He is a great person to talk to, he always makes you feel so relaxed and comfortable! I also love the products they use in my hair too! Overall, I would highly recommend Mary and Ernie for colour, cut and style!

I have been a client of Mary and Ernesto for many years, and have great trust and respect in their talents. The colour and style are always amazing suit my persona and capture my everyday life. When people stop you on the street and ask"who does your hair", you are thrilled to extend a phone number without consideration. They are passionate about their profession and it shows in their on-going relationships with their clients. Its an amazing experience each time I sit back and enjoy being beautified.

Mary and Ernesto are exceptionally talented and best in class in their fields and they are the nicest, warmest, funniest and caring people you can imagine. For 25 years I have been faithfully going to see this dynamic dual. Every minute has been a delight and the hair dos are always fantastic. Mary has an incredible innate flair for colouring. Ernesto works magic with the scissors. They bring out the best in everyone they spend time with. It is always a pleasure to be with them and I look forward to another 25 years!! I highly recommend them!! xo Heather
H Gamble
I've been a satisfied client of Mary and Ernie's for over 20 years. Mary highlights my hair and Ernie cuts it. Both do their jobs to the highest standards and you won't meet nicer people anywhere. Recently Mary has added hair extensions to her repertoire and I have been a happy recipient of the magic she weaves! I have very fine hair and when I walk out of there with my hair thick and long I feel like a goddess. At least a half dozen random people commented on how great my hair looked today. Mary and Ernie are two of the best people I know, both in magical hair styling and in their exemplary human design.
H Thomson
My friend had ombré done to her hair and it looked amazing. she recommended mary and ernesto to me. I came in and Mary sat with me and was very patient and listened carefully to what I wanted. Ernesto cut my hair and gave me the exact look I was wishing for. I left the salon feeling and looking like a celebrity. I highly recommend Mary and Ernesto.
Ariana No
I have been a client of Mary and Ernesto for more than five years. Throughout my many appointments with them I have never left the salon feeling disappointed or unsatisfied with their work. Mary and Ernesto are an amazing team dedicate to the work they do and the clients they serve. Here is to five plus years of amazing hair cuts and colours!

An Olaplex Love Affair

Amazing Review from a Client!

It has been almost 3 weeks since I got the Keratin Complex Advanced Glycolic Smoothing System treatment, and I can honestly say I am very pleased with the results!
