Maxine Salon

712 N. Rush St.

We'll go from blonde to brunette (and back again) at the drop of a hat. And thanks to all that peroxide, we needed a hat to cover the evidence. Our mousy roots had to go, but we doubted our fragile strands could handle another chemical. The colorist quietly assessed the damage while trying to identify our natural shade (light brown). She decided to give our hair a break by just touching up the roots, assuring us we could return in six weeks for something more dramatic. She then deposited warm honey and amber tones up top, adding a healthy dose of shine that even seemed to soften our fuzzy texture. Partial highlights, $120 and up.
