A graduate of Maxine’s in-house training program, Cliff is extremely versatile with all lengths of hair. He enjoys the challenge that extremes bring to his work. Very short haircuts are fun and creative, requiring a distinct strategy; long hair can be transformed into sleek, sexy, runway hair. “When you can style your own hair every day to recreate your salon look, that’s the sign of a good haircut,” he says. Additionally, Cliff has spear-headed our exciting and new Braid Menu concept and has become the braiding specialist in Chicago. You see him in the salon practicing new braids constantly which immediately get translated onto his clients. Cliff sees every braid as unique and customizes his braids to fit the client and the occasion, Whether it is going to Lollapalooza, the gym or on a hot date, Cliff's braids will stylishly take you there. Away from the salon Cliff likes to indulge in his love of travel. Before coming to Maxine, he lived in Belgium for two years.
Cliff's haircuts are $80.00, his braids begin at $40
My new fav hair salon! I found Maxine when I visited for a Birchbox + Kerastase braid event in June and Cliff gave me the most fantastic crown braid I've ever seen-seriously, it was damn good. I also got to meet Maxine that night and she was just too cute, I knew I had to return! From the event I received 25% off my next service so I scheduled an appointment right away for a blow-out/style for my engagement pictures. I came back on a Saturday afternoon and the salon was packed-so much going on, I loved it! Right in the heart of the Gold Coast/River North, Maxine is just the perfect location to make you feel like you're right in the middle of everything going on in the city. The salon is white, bright, and modern and you're greeted by a wall of Kerastase and Shu Umera products and incredibly friendly and helpful staff. They have water, coffee, beer, and champagne to sip on while you wait (or while you're being pampered). In short, I'm pretty much in love with the salon! As if a fab salon wasn't enough-Cliff made my hair look so fantastic I told him I needed him to just live in my bathroom so he can give me blow outs everyday! He is super friendly and even explained what he was doing so I could try and replicate it at home (which will never, ever happen-he's too good). My hair lasted through engagement pictures that day and through my engagement party that night and everyone gave me compliments on how great it looked. I can't say enough good things about Cliff and the wonderful things he's done to my hair. With fabulous staff, luxurious products and treatments, and killer stylists-you'd have to search far and wide to find a salon that could top Maxine!
