The Abby Haliti Salon

Celebrity colorist and balayage expert, Abby Haliti, is responsible for some of the most sought after locks in town including Sarah Jessica Parker, Rita Ora, Gisele Bunchen and our very own Olivia Palermo. Now, the established hairdresser has opened her very own salon in the heart of Maplewood, New Jersey.

Originally from Europe and educated all over the world, Haliti received her extensive training with renowned colorist, Nancy Braun of L’Oreal. Soon after she became recognized for her signature “Power Highlights” technique which transforms blonde and brunette tresses into lighter, multidimensional strands without the brassiness. 

Haliti’s vision is centred on enhancing beautiful hair while simultaneously following a healthy approach. The “less is more” philosophy is heavily incorporated into her work, which she has implemented into her own salon. “My goal is not only to make sure that my clients are on the forefront of fashion, but more importantly to achieve this without jeopardizing the health of the hair,” she explained.

The Abby Haliti Salon held its grand opening only a few months ago and it’s the latest opening for Maplewood Avenue’s Clarus building, which in addition to 20 apartment units, also has Starbucks, The Cassidy restaurant, and a BCB Community Bank branch. “It’s wonderful to have this kind of world class talent available and not just in New York City, but right here in Maplewood Village,” stated Greg Lembrich, Maplewood Township Committee member, at the opening.
