Adrianne Johnston

Adrianne Johnston, Stylist, Maxine Salon ChicagoStylist Adrianne Johnston, in addition to exceptional cutting ability, is well-known for her volumized blowouts that somehow last for days. "A good haircut and blowout enhances your natural beauty and flatters you like nothing else," she says. A stylist of ten years, she is versatile and her strengths, besides the blowouts and cutting hair, include all versions of special occasion hair. She loves hair with drama and thus her updos create a ‘head-turning’ effect. Her looks are of-the-moment fused with classic references such as braids and twists. Because of her incredible hairdressing skills Adrianne is also the go-to-stylist for chic Chicago brides. She gives her clients a customized look that’s different from everyone else. Her work has been featured in American Salon, Launch Pad and Bridal magazines and on  Refinery29. Adrianne is also an educator for Kérastase and proudly worked on the Kérastase team at New York Fashion Week for Spring 2012.

Adrianne's haircuts are $90.00

Men's Haircuts at Maxine: The Chicago Cut

For our latest video, it's the guys' turn. Stylist Adrianne Johnston created a look for Maxine client Akash that's modern yet classic—and effortlessly versatile. Paired with a nice suit and the Windy City as our backdrop, this is a perfect look at men's cut/styling at Maxine Salon in Chicago.



Mondo Guerra Photo Shoot at Maxine Salon

When Joey Grant and stylist Josh Shores, two of the faces behind Mint Male, came to us with the proposition of a Mondo Guerra photo shoot at the salon, we were all over it. We're still spinning from the robbery he endured last season on Project Runway, but Mondo is as engaging, talented, and lovable as ever...



Asymmetrical Bob

Maxine Salon stylist Adrianne Johnston creates a young, fresh look with the asymmetrical bob, leaving Ally with a style that's young and chic, without sacrificing too much length. Colorist Leslie Shores took Ally's hair a few shades darker to give it even more drama, leaving her with a fierce new look that she can't help but smile about.

I leave feeling like a movie star!

Every time I get my hair cut here, I leave feeling like a movie star! I've had my hair cut here 3 times. I love how, the first time I made an appointment here, they asked about my hair type and paired me up with someone who specializes in that particular type of hair. I was paired up with Adrianne and she rocks! I have a lot of super fine hair and really like to have a hairstyle, not just a plain 'ol cut. She nails my hair ever single time. I just went to see her today and I am thrilled! I took in a picture of what I wanted and she nailed it. I got a compliment in the street within ten minutes of leaving Maxine. Adrianne is always upbeat and friendly. The salon is always very clean and there are people cleaning up hairs as they are being cut. Very nice, white, modern looking place. Everyone is friendly. Love it! Thanks, Adrianne!

Over the past few years I have been in SEVERAL weddings and have had SEVERAL awful up-do's. But, the girls at Maxine did such a great job with the wedding I was in. Becca, Elizabeth, Bridget and Adrianne made sure we all were looking fabulous and I don't think a single hair moved out of place the whole night! We all will definitely back as regulars!!! Thanks girls!! * Pros: fabuluos work * Cons: i wish all the wedding's I'm in are in chicago!

Stylist Adrienne ROCKS!

I was in town for a wedding and on my concierge's recommendation, went to Maxine for a blowout/style. I'm always wary of new stylists but I had absolutely nothing to fear. Adrienne is the BEST stylist I've ever met, and that includes my regular stylist at home in San Francisco. She worked her magic and my hair turned out voluminous and full while still soft and swingy. She also added some subtle waves....a touch of tasteful GLAM. She really listened to what I wanted and totally exceeded my expectations. She is AWESOME!!! Front desk staff was a little aloof and snooty, but I was so happy with my hair I didn't care. Thanks, Adrienne! I wish you lived in San Francisco! * Pros: Adrienne, the best stylist in the world. Trendy Rush St. location. * Cons: A little pricey. Snooty front desk staff.
