Haircare product you can’t live without? Kérastase Elixir Ultime

Who is your dream client? Why? I would love to work with J Lo! Not only is she talented, but she’s beautiful and stylish.

What do you never leave home without? Lipstick and mascara. 

Best decade for hair, and why? I love the beachy waves of the 1970’s. The styles then were so effortless.

And the worst?  The 1980’s. Too much frizz!

Favorite thing to do on a free Sunday? On Sundays you can find me spending time with my kids, going to the park, having a movie night and of course, shopping! 

If there was a movie made about your life, what would it be called? Working Mama

The best thing about working at Maxine? The people I work with and the clients that sit in my chair are what make Maxine Salon like a second home to me.

Everyone was kind from the moment I walked in

I've used Lauren Mildice as my colorist for over 2 years and she's amazing! So amazing I followed her to Maxine's Salon from the south suburbs. Lauren always listens to what I want, and knows what colors will look best. This most recent time we added a little red peep color and I absolutely love it, and will be doing it again. Raven did a great job cutting/styling my hair. Maxines is a nice salon with friendly staff. Everyone was kind from the moment I walked in.

I felt like a million bucks!

OMG!!!! Diana, Maxine's Colorist Specialist, is a Master of her craft!! I walked in thinking there was no saving my hair because of all the different colored banding and WOW! Diana fixed the horror and gave me a gorgeous new color! As if that wasn't enough, Raven then worked her magic with the scissors giving me a delicate face-framing style while keeping my hair long! The moment I got up from the chair, I felt like a million bucks! I HIGHLY recommend this power duo!! Thank you, Diana, for your vision & skills!!!! You have another life-long, loyal client!!

WOW!!! I mean...wow

WOW!!! I mean...wow. Lauren and Raven made my hair look the best it's ever looked. My mom and I were in for the weekend out of town and decided to get our hair done. I knew I wanted to try something new with my hair, and both of the stylists were so accommodating and a joy to be around. Everyone at the salon is lovely and they made me feel so pampered and beautiful. If you ever need a blowout or a cut and color while your in the city, CHECK THIS PLACE OUT! IT'S WORTH IT!
