I've been going to Maxine's for years. I've seen a lot of the stylist but usually stick with Hans or Aron. My hair is really thick and hard to cut. This is the 1st salon I have been to that didn't automatically try to texturize or thin my hair. I also do color with Sarah. Thanks Maxine's for a stress free experience. P.S. They have wine and beer if you ant so inclined. Nice!!
I have been going to Aaron for about a year now and I am always happy with the haircuts he gives me. I have short hair and I'm middle aged. There is a fine line between a cute, fun and fresh haircut and a very o.k. haircut. I always leave the salon feeling good about my haircut and I get lots of compliments on my hair. I live in a suburb of Chicago and Maxine isn't very close to me, but now I wouldn't think of going anywhere else. I appreciate that Aaron really takes his time cutting my hair--first wet and then dry--and makes sure I'm happy with it before I leave the salon. The salon itself is clean and bright and the staff is very pleasant. Some of the shampoo people are better than some of the others, but the cut is what is most important to me. I would suggest that when you go Aaron, you follow his suggestions and advice--he sometimes takes me a little "outside of my box," but always in a good way. But if you're like my sister, who tells Aaron exactly how she wants her hair, he'll do that too and she's also always happy with his haircuts.
I want to begin by saying I have been to just about every salon on the north shore. I live in downtown Evanston, and have hit all the places north to Highland Park down to Michigan Ave, but Aaron (David) is by far the best there is! I got lucky with really great hair. It does exactly what you want it to do. However, I have A LOT of hair and it grows really fast. It also gets very heavy and bulky. Not only does Aaron understand my hair and how it grows . . . it's the cut that stops people on the street asking me where I get my hair cut. Aaron takes his time and is meticulous in every way. More importantly he knows hair - what will work and what won't. The best thing about my hair is that I don't have to fight with it after 10 days of leaving the salon. It grows out perfectly so that my hair always looks great whether it's its 2 weeks into the cut or 7 weeks later .. . . he hits it right every time! Make an appointment with Aaron, and I promise, you will love your hair everyday! I can't think of going anywhere else.
I finally found a salon I can be loyal to after years of salon hopping in Chicago. I've been going to Maxine Salon for about a year and a half and love Aaron's haircuts. I would say I have a lot of hair, but it's fine, so the wrong hair cut can leave my long hair looking dull and flat. Aaron does a really nice job with my long layers. My hair always looks playful and thick. And it grows out really nicely, so I can wait a little longer before getting my next hair cut...saving me some $$$ which is always nice.
