Salon Guide

Where to go to get the hottest looks and the freshest styles in a town near you.


Maxine Salon



Located in the posh Gold Coast region of Chicago, Maxine Salon has been a first-rate salon since it opened its doors in 1986. With white walls and decor, the salon gives off both a sophisticated and cutting-edge vibe. "What we pride ourselves on is being approachable," explains salon owner Maxine Kroll. "Our atmosphere and staff, you'll find, are friendly, fun and fabulour!" The salon's stylists are divided into "platforms" based on experience level, which helps guide clients-even celeb clients like Kendra Wilkinson! With a choice of 22 stylists and 11 colorists, haircuts with a platform one stylist start at $60 and reach $115 with a platform three stylist. Single process coloring begins at $75, partial highlights at $130 and full highlights at $150.
