To personalize various features in React MUI, you can use the makeStyles hook to define custom styles for components. Here are the steps:

  1. Import the makeStyles hook from the MUI core styles module:

    import { makeStyles } from "@mui/styles";
  2. Define your custom styles using the makeStyles hook. You can define styles for various components, such as buttons, typography, etc. Here's an example:

    const useStyles = makeStyles((theme) => ({
     button: {
       backgroundColor: "red",
       color: "white",
     title: {
       fontWeight: "bold",
  3. Apply the custom styles to your components using the useStyles hook. Here's an example of how to apply the custom styles to a button and a typography component:

    const classes = useStyles();
    const App = () => {
     return (
         <Button variant="contained" className={classes.button}>
           Click me
         <Typography variant="h1" className={classes.title}>
           My heading
  4. You can also override the default MUI styles using the same approach. Simply target the class that MUI uses for the component, and provide your custom styles:

    const useStyles = makeStyles((theme) => ({
     button: {
       backgroundColor: "red",
       color: "white",
       "&:hover": {
         backgroundColor: "purple",
     // override the default MUI styles for the h1 component
     h1: {
       fontSize: "3rem",
       fontWeight: "bold",
       color: "blue",

Note: always check the latest version of MUI documentation for syntax or API changes.
