Stylist Qiana Redmond specializes in cutting, relaxing and styling all hair textures. Clients love her specialty sets, such as roller sets, straw sets and twist sets. This stylist of 12 years is a big fan of healthy hair and accordingly does a lot of work on natural, non-relaxed and curly hair. "I really want my clients to be able to recreate what I've done for them at the salon," she says. Qiana has participated in many TV makeovers and was a stylist for Fox TV anchor Tamron Hall. She was also featured in a blog post from Rachel Odem, entitled Not Your Average Hair Stylist.
Qiana's haircuts are $95.00
After moving from New York City to IL late summer last year, I was desperately in need of some pampering for my natural tresses. I called to book an appointment and was immediately impressed with the customer service over the phone. The receptionist asked all the right questions about my hair and the services I wanted then made recommendations on the best stylists for my needs. A few scheduling details later I was booked with Qiana and I could not be more satisfied!!! She was prompt (as I imagine all the salon's stylists are), handled my hair very gently and in the end gave me a cut, blow out and style that was impeccable. My hair was in excellent condition when I left and the movement was a work of art!!! I'm going back tomorrow and CANNOT wait to see Qiana again!! If you have natural hair, give Maxine's a call and try Qiana out! You will not be sorry!!
I went back to Maxine during a birthday trip to Chicago. I was feeling a little blah and wanted to get some color added to my hair for a pick-me-up. As soon as I sat down in Jasen's chair I knew I was in great hands. He was very funny and friendly, and he put me at ease immediately. I told him I wanted to try balayage, and he suggested a mix of honey and caramel shades that would work well for me. I told him to go for it and as he painted my hair, we chatted about my birthday trip and he offered me some great suggestions on things to do while I was in town. After he finished with my color, I moved on to Qiana for styling. (I had been with Rivkah before, but she was off that day.) As Qiana blew my hair dry, it was then that I was able to see how amazing Jasen's color work truly was. It made me look younger - a definite plus on my birthday! Qiana was sweet and talented, quickly curling my hair into fabulousity. When I looked at the final result, I felt hot - and I hadn't felt that way in too long. I had drinks with an old friend after leaving the salon, and he couldn't stop telling me how great I looked. Thanks again, Maxine, for making me look great, and for making my birthday special. Jasen & Qiana - I'll see you again soon!
Qiana relaxed and cut my hair and it is truly one of the best cuts that I've ever had! I grew my hair out from a pixie to almost a bob, and it was difficult to shape. When I visit other salons, stylists always compliment my cut. To top it all off, I've never spent longer than 2 hours here getting serviced, true professionals.
I've been a Client here for over 7 years...wow! My go to girl is Qiana. She has the skill, style, patience and so much more. Although prices are a bit steep for a wash and blowdry ($80), the level of service is superb. The two best stylists for easily handling naturally curly hair are Qiana and Michelle. Both of these ladies are superb at styling, cutting, keratin treatments, special occasion up-dos and fixing bad jobs by stylists form other salons. And should you need another type of service, you're in great hands: Waxing see Jamie Make-up see Michelle..yes, she kicks butt at that too...just look at her makeup on herself! Stunning! Color see Robert Holding down the front desk are Ricky, Carlos and Tracy...some of the funniest, most personable people you'll ever meet. Treat them right and you're sure to get that last minute appointment when you need it. Above all, Maxine's carries the best product line-up your hair will ever experience - Shu Uemura and Kerastase. Trust me, you'll never want drug store again, especially if you have naturally curly hair. Four stars because of the steep prices and a la carte charging..in this economy everyone needs a deal..at least every now and then.
I have been to previous salons in the past and have never experienced anything like this. Wonderful gentle smiles greeting you at the door (RICK). Jasen is excellent, He listens and analyses your hair and tells you what would best compliement you, He listened to me as I pour my heart and soul out and was very compassionate. I recommend him to everyone, He's great with coloring ethnic hair as well(im AA). After that I went upstairs to visit the very talented and drop dead gorgeous Quiana. She is very maticulous at what she does and holds conversations which have you feeling like you have known her for years. She took my lifeless thin hair and had me walk out with my co workers asking me if I have weave in my hair. I would most def be back in 2 weeks. Jasen I wish we could color our hair every 2 weeks as well because you gave me killer highlights, unfortunately I have to wait a couple of months before I get them retouched. Yes, they are expensive but you pay for what you get so stop saying you have to take out loans, its not like you were forced to go there. If you want top notch service you better believe you have to pay $$$$ and it was worth every cent of my money. If you should find yourself at Maxines tell them Christina S. Recommended you. Excellent job Quiana & Jasen.
