2023 Best Wedding Hairstylist

Maricruz Hairstyles

Maricruz Polito believes brides look their most beautiful when they feel comfortable — and as a result, she’s a pro at just about any style under the sun, from updos and twists to loose waves, braids, and buns. The former Newbury Street stylist has a Waltham studio where she conducts hair trial runs during the week — along with classes for professionals — but come Thursday to Sunday, the mane master is on-site with her brides, creating fresh and elegant looks for their big reveal.
