Maxine's is a good salon, but nothing special. The three story walk-up building that it is in is cute and it is nicely decorated. The stylists are good but not great. It's often very crowded and doesn't have a relaxed feel. Since their prices went up I have not gone back because I don't think it's worth the price increase. It seems like the kind of place out of towners go to when they want to get their hair done in the city.
