poor management – A friend of mine referred me to Maxwell's, and I was immediately turned off by the receptionist who answered the phone- RUDELY. But because of my friend's experience, that was the only reason of why I went in. When I came in for my appointment, once again, they had the rudest receptionist that wouldn't help me with anything. I was standing there for 15 minutes before she decided to help me out. CINDY, was who I was referred too. What a mistake. Just like the receptionist Cindy had a hard time apparently to listen to my concerns and needs. IN retrospect, the salon has a major attitude problem- even the MALE stylists. That salon needs a MAJOR attitude adjustment! Next time, I'm complaining to the owner- I cannot believe he/she would run such a place like that.
OUTSTANDING HAIR PROFESSIONAL – I have been going to Cindy for many years and I could not be more pleased with her qualifications.She's trained and worked under one of the nations leading hair designers, Vidal Sassoon.Cindy therefore knows color and cutting better than anyone that I have ever been to. What really sets her apart is her 25 years in solving many hair and skin problems. As a CEO of a major company I always need to look my best and Cindy's professional skills help me achieve that with her incrediable coloring and cutting capabilities. I highly recommend Cindy Mannella.
Absolute Perfection! – You are greeted with a smile (unusual these days) offered something to drink, do not wait long and leave with an incredible haircut and color at a reasonable price, even better on Tuesday $10 off or Wednesday $20 off, and hey, every penny counts these days. Better than Newport or Corona Del Mar at much higher price!
Bonnie is a genius! Perfect experience! – Before last Monday I hadn't had a haircut in almost 8 years. My hair was all the way down my back, very very thick and very very curly. I was super attached to it, but I knew it was time to get rid of all the dead weight and make it look less like some kind of frizzy, pyramid-shaped cape. I had Cher hair. Vintage, giant, out of control curly Cher hair. So I spoke to Shannon, the receptionist, prior to going in. I made it clear that I had very difficult hair to work with, and I said about ten times that I needed someone who really knew what to do with curly hair. I was insistent, and full of fear, and I'm pretty sure I sounded completely neurotic. She patiently listened to my rambling plea for someone who could take on the challenge of my wild hair & booked me with Bonnie. I said thank you, hung up the phone, and proceeded to drive myself crazy for the next week thinking about all the horrific things that could happen to my hair. I was petrified walking into the salon. But Shannon and Bonnie immediately welcomed me and made me feel at ease. It was exactly the kind of atmosphere I had hoped for, and as Bonnie talked with me about my hair it became clear to me that she knew exactly what I wanted. She understood my hair, which had been my biggest concern. And when I saw the pictures of her adorable kids I saw that they had curly hair too! I finally stopped freaking out and just trusted her. Bonnie took off at least 8 to 10 inches and cut lots of long layers. I avoided looking at the massive amounts of hair on the floor and instead focused on how AMAZING my hair looked! It was beautiful! My hair now frames my face perfectly, has just the right amount of volume, is still long enough to be versatile, and actually has a style to it. I LOVE IT! SO MUCH!!! All that freaking out was for nothing. Bonnie is a GENIUS with curly hair, and anyone with curly hair knows that it's really not easy to work with. I'm so happy! Best haircut I've EVER had. THANK YOU BONNIE!!
Don't go to Cindy – I've been going to Cindy for a while and have never been satisfied. Last time I was in she left me with orange roots. She said it looked fine and I knew it didn't. I asked her to fix it and she told that if I wasn't going to be satisfied with my hair to go somewhere else. She basically kicked me out with wet hair after I offered to pay. She was very rude and yelled at me. I'm very disappointed and would not recommend her.
Great hair salon – I went to Maxwells to get a hair cut. They did a great job! I got exactly what I was looking. I would defentily recommend this salon to everyone! Great job!
GO IF YOU MUST, GO WITH CAUTION – I went to this salon to see CINDY and had the worst experience ever. She damaged my hair beyond belief, then flat ironed my wet hair. And took 5 hours to do a partial weave. Then after ruining my hair she gave me attitude like she owned the salon. I went to see ERIN after this awful incident and the service was much better. ERIN was friendly, patient and gave me an awesome color and cut, while taking good care of my hair. If you must go here I would highly recomend ERIN, she definitely knows what she is doing, and is a nice person, without a snotty attitude.
this is not good place to get hair cutted – I went there for hair cut last week. I also show them the picture that I want my hair to look like.After done, it is nothing like what I want and they also mess up my hair. I really don't suggest you go there for hair cut.
Cindy Lorraine is a superb hair stylist!!! – About 6 mos ago I discovered Cindy Lorraine and have been going to her ever since...I cannot imagine going to anyone else. She has incredible skill and has a fantastic eye for color. She's the first stylist who took the time to ask me exactly what my expectations were and didn't touch my hair until she felt satisfied that she answered all my questions. Cindy Lorraine also has an impeccable skill with thick, curly hair...nobody has come close to to styling or coloring my hair like Cindy. I've had so many bad haircuts because stylists didn't quite know how to cut thick,curly hair...so trust me when I say Cindy is the best! In addition, Cindy is always in the 'know' when it comes to the best products out there, especially the natural product lines; she introduced me to Kevin Murphy hair products and it's the best shampoo/conditioner I've ever used on my hair...it leaves my hair silky smooth. I look forward to getting my hair cut with Cindy because it's a wonderful experience every single time.
Ask for Cindy Lorraine, she's the best!
