Raves for Maria Esztergalyos, founder of The Headshot Salon:


"Maria is my not-so-secret weapon. When my clients work with her, I know that their images will be prepped and retouched to perfection. Which means that the actors I shoot to get the most effective images. Maria is not only the best retoucher I've ever worked with, but also one of the best people. I have never worked with a retoucher who cares so much about getting it right and about making the client happy. Viva Maria!!!!" - Kenneth Dolin, Photographer


“Maria is a 5-star person and photo retoucher. We trust her wholeheartedly with our photos and with our clients and recommend her to everybody. Her talent and integrity are unmatched and it's an absolute pleasure to work with her time and time again.” -The Hendershotts, Photography Team


"If you want to present yourself in the best, most natural way possible, head straight to Maria Esztergalyos.  Your photographer is the critical first step in taking that great shot of you, but Maria makes it even better.  And I’m not talking about airbrushed glamour retouching of yesteryear, but nuanced improvements that keep it real while helping you put your best face forward.  In addition to doing outstanding work, she’s patient, kind and helpful, and she genuinely listens to you!" - Larry, Actor


"I just used Maria to retouch some of my clients photos and I couldn't be more pleased! Being a talent manager, it's really important to send my clients to people I trust and feel confident about.  After all, the photos represent the actor and they should be the best."  -SR Talent Management


“I've had Maria retouch a few professional photos for marketing purposes, and was amazed at her skill level. In one picture, she replaced an untamed chunk of hair with lovely even-tempered hair, and was even able to hand-draw some highlights. Amazing! Also, Maria got them back to me right away, and her charges are very reasonable. I'd recommend Maria to anyone!" -Aubra, Business Professional


"Maria did an excellent job with retouching my headshots. I was only going to retouch one of my photos, but she did such an excellent job that I hired her to retouch three more! Retouching services are important and Maria did a fantastic job. She was very prompt in returning emails and she completed all of the retouching very quickly. Thanks Maria!" - Jennelle, Actress

Maria does impeccable work; she works with you graciously until you get exactly what you desire for your photo..."- Katharine, Actress


"I had come to us Maria's retouching service recently, and was very pleased with the speed and quality of work she did on my headshots. I've since recommended her service to my friends who have inquired about a good retouching service for their headshot needs."- Shaun, Actor


"Maria, I am blown away by the re-touches that were made and that the images still maintain their natural integrity"- Chris, Actor

"I was nervous about retouching my photos; afraid the photos would not look like me. Maria did an awesome job with making simple changes that made a big difference. I have received many complements on the photos. And, I have recommended her to friends in the industry. You are dealing with the BEST!"- Marisa, Actress


"Maria did a wonderful job of retouching my daughter’s headshot. I’m sure that her work contributed to her landing an agent. Maria’s work shows pure artistry in its ability to enhance an image considerably without compromising the integrity of the subject matter. I would hire again, and I will!"- Ariel, Mother of Child Actress


"I'm floored not only by the quality of the retouching but your attention to my needs and timely detail. The process was so easy and it was nice to speak directly with an actual person to tweak any minor imperfections. The result was flawless and you took the time to make every revision I needed and for such a reasonable price when you see the final result. I'm going to be a repeat customer, for sure." - Chester, Actor
