  • Max Q. June 8, 2021 via Yelp
    Leah helped me with a cut and color and brought my brown hair to a fun and vibrant blonde without bleach (!!!!!) for the summer. She was really welcoming and chatted with me the whole way through-- I'll definitely be back after my next identity crisis!
  • Larissa Hamblin May 28, 2021, 9:19 pm via Google
    I will only ever come to Maxwell’s to get my hair done. I’ve always seen Leah, and she has made my hair dreams come true each time I’ve come in. We went from my natural brown to bright pink, then we did a split dye pink and blue, and now I’m at an apricot. My hair comes out feeling better than ever, even after she bleaches it, because of the care and professionalism she executes. The owner, Russell, is literally the kindest person you can come across too. Every time I’ve ever gone in, everyone h – show

      Larissa! We adore you and can’t thank you enough for your kind words!!
  • Blake Miller May 28, 2021, 8:46 pm via Google
    Leah gave me a perfect cut before a wedding, and I didn’t even give her one instruction. She knew exactly what I needed- and overdelivered. Amazing amazing experience and highly recommend her!
  • Allegra Barlow May 18, 2021, 3:51 am via Google
    After more than a year of excessively long and thick pandemic hair, Sarah swooped in and rescued me, taking off several inches and also lots of weight. She gave me valuable advice that no one else had ever shared with me about what shoulder length style would make my hair feel lighter, and I couldn’t be happier with the cut! Friendly atmosphere, COVID safety protocols in place, and overall a super fun experience.
  • Ace Salisbury May 18, 2021, 3:50 am via Google
    Friendly and incredibly skilled staff. Russel has given me some of the best haircuts of my adult life! I would recommend highly.
  • Hope C. April 29, 2021 via Yelp
    Love this place! Great vibes, great service, great hair! Leah did an awesome job with my blonde :)
  • Katie Furstoss April 20, 2021, 6:17 pm via Google
    Sarah did a wonderful job evening out my bleached hair to make it look seamless. She's really knowledgeable about everything bleaching and blondes! And the salon is so cute and welcoming. Feels so much more comfortable than a big salon with the same quality.
  • Amanda S. March 21, 2021 via Yelp
    100% recommend this very clean, professional and cozy salon. I immediately booked an appointment after getting vaccinated for my first haircut in 12+ months and Sarah did an *amazing* job. She somehow managed to both save my length and highlight my natural waves? I've just been catching myself in the mirror all day because of how damn healthy my hair looks.
  • sarah dowd March 1, 2021, 11:53 pm via Google
    Sarah did magic on my hair! I had spent the last year or so bleaching and trying crazy colors on my own and had a lot of fun doing that until my hair started breaking off. I let it grow out a little and needed an expert colorist to blend the roots without damaging what was left of my fragile abused hair. Sarah did an amazing job of evening the tones and blending the roots with absolutely no breakage or damage. Thank you!!
    • Company's official reply March 2, 2021, 12:09 am via Google
      Hey Sarah, thank you so much for your kind words! We hope to see you again soon!!

    Leah is a pro. Such a great experience and will definitely be coming back, thank you, Leah and Russell!

      Hey Andrew! Thank you so much! Welcome to the neighborhood, see you again soon!
  • Tara S January 28, 2021, 2:53 am via Google
    Lo did an amazing job giving me just the hair color I wanted! She was very gentle and thorough and made sure I was getting exactly what I came for (color correction). On top of great service, the vibes were immaculate — I can't wait to go in again!

    Felt very safe in regards to Covid Compliance, masks were worn by myself and staff and everything is disinfected extremely regularly!
  • Eben Askins January 20, 2021, 6:47 pm via Google
    What an absolute gem! Trendy Franklin Ave has a new salon on the strip. Maxwell’s is right off of Franklin on Lincoln Rd. next to the new pizza place (their chicken rolls are really good fyi).

    Sarah is such a pro. I showed her a few pictures of what I wanted and she nailed it in no time — no fuss, no muss. She even gave me a product recommendation.

    The place is immaculately clean and observed proper Covid protocols.

    Highly recommend!

      Hi Eben, thank you so much for your sweet review! We hope to see you again soon!

    Sarah is an amazing blonde specialist! Professional and fun conversationalist, the fastest hours in the chair taking my roots from black to platinum blonde with a color correction!
  • Natalie McCullough December 21, 2020, 1:21 am via Google
    Thank you, Sarah, for the great haircut and styling. Will definitely be back for the next one :)

    Sarah is amazing! She’s a true professional and I loved my hair color I’m a natural brunette and she did an amazing job lightening my color without any damage, she truly listens to you and you can tell she has a lot of experience with coloring. I don’t trust my hair to anyone and she did an amazing job! The salon is very clean and I will definitely be seeing Sarah again.
  • Melanie Londono November 1, 2020, 11:37 pm via Google
    I have gotten my haircut at Maxwell’s a few times now and am very happy each time. Sarah did a fabulous job with my silver chunky highlights. She’s a true professional with lots of experience and I felt so comfortable with her direction. She really listened to me and my hair turned out better than expected! The staff, owner, and salon have always impressed me and I can’t wait to go back!

      Omg Melanie you are the sweetest, thank you for taking the time to review us, see you soon!
  • Jodi Gonzalez October 21, 2020, 4:31 am via Google
    I just had my hair done by Sarah. My hair is black with a blonde balayage that was super grown out. I asked her to bring the color back up closer to the root and to tone it as well. She did an AMAZING job with the lightening process. The procedure she used lightened my hair super well with minimal damage. My hair feels healthier than when I first went in. She did an incredible job blending the blonde in with my black root as well. She was very professional and also fast, considering how time con – show

    Very safe COVID experience. Excellent cut, lovely staff, great space and location. Wear a mask, tip extra, be safe and stylish! Ask for Leah <3

    You'll never find better service or better work than at Maxwell's!
  • Perry P. December 26, 2019 via Yelp
    This was SUCH an adorable hair salon! I was lucky enough to find it and be paired with Leah. She took me from bleach blonde to a beautiful red shade. I felt immediately welcomed when I arrived and genuinely had a fun time hanging out. I was unsure what shade of red I wanted and showed Leah a few pictures. She managed to match me with the best color. My hair left feeling 100x better than when I arrived. I will FOR SURE be back to see her for touch ups. Go pay her a visit!!! Super reasonable price – show
  • Destin Sisemore December 3, 2019, 1:08 am via Google
    This is my neighborhood spot for sure. Russell is absolutely lovely — I love the haircuts and beard trims, and especially love how it always feels like I'm catching up with a friend. Have never had a negative experience here.
  • Anna Stauber November 14, 2019, 8:57 pm via Google
    Leah was amazing! She understood exactly what I wanted and made my hair look GREAT! I’ll be back and highly recommend.
  • Fernando G. September 19, 2019 via Yelp
    I've been struggling for years with trying to find the right place for my hair and as soon as I found Russell, it felt like the clouds parted. This place is clean, bright, and welcoming and I look forward to going every time now. The cuts are always excellent and I recently had my hair colored by Leah and it looks *fantastic*. Highly recommended!
  • Connor Sorensen July 24, 2019, 9:43 pm via Google
    Russel and the rest of the crew are skilled, knowledgeable, and super great to be around. Russel and Luke have been cutting my hair since I moved to New York and I couldn't be happier.
  • Nic June 25, 2019, 5:40 am via Google
    I will drive hours for a good haircut, my entire mood can be attached to a nice cut and I’ve been coming to Russell for about 6 years all the way from Long Island and there’s a reason. They’re just that good. If you want a haircut that builds confidence, has strangers stopping you to ask where you get your hair did, and has you having a new found love for getting a cut, then look no further. Honestly, just book them, stop wasting your time. It’s the best hair salon in Brooklyn.
  • Grant Schaefer May 31, 2019, 11:01 pm via Google
    I love Maxwell's. Best haircutters, best music, best energy. They really do an incredible job, and it's such an inclusive environment. When you're here you're family! xo
  • Kyle Harabedian January 18, 2019, 8:40 pm via Google
    Diane is awesome! She cut my hair when she lived here in Minneapolis and always made me look good! I highly recommend her.
  • Maier Bianchi January 16, 2019, 4:43 am via Google
    Eric and the team always treat me really good after a long day at work. Maxwell’s has easily become my go to spot for my monthly cut. All of the staff has been approachable and the teamwork vibe is strong. Would recommend to anyone for men’s or women’s cut.
  • Nicole Bolea December 30, 2018, 7:47 pm via Google
    Diane is awesome
    She talked me into a balayage and did an incredible job blending my hair, I get compliments on my hair all the time
  • Amanda Hansen December 29, 2018, 11:12 am via Google
    Diane is efficient, friendly and professional and she’s great at thinking outside the box. She is most concerned with health and longevity vs. a quick fix and that is much appreciated!
  • Elizabeth Wong December 28, 2018, 7:55 am via Google
    I worked with Diane, she was super professional and I was nervous about getting a perm but she made the experience really fun and gave me all the tools I needed to keep my hair in good condition. She’s a fantastic person to work with and I will definitely be working with her again in the future.
  • Luke F. December 26, 2018 via Yelp
    One need only walk by and look in through the glass to see stylists engaged in their work, clientele happy mid-groom. My particular experiences were with Diane.
    Diane is great as both a stylist and as an overall person. Through providing insights and applying her skillful, attentive practice she uncovered a look well-suited to me personally. This involved working with both scalp hair and beard. She is a good listener and has interesting things to say. Became a valuable part of my monthly routine

    My favorite barber in the neighborhood!
  • Michael Jaja December 11, 2018, 3:35 am via Google
    Russell does an incredible job with my hair, every time. He listens to what I would like, and clearly explains what he's going to do and why. To top it off he's courteous, professional, and kind. No reason to go anywhere else.

    Russell is such a doll! He's fun to chat with, very hospitable and is attentive to your vision for your new look.

    I been going to Maxwells for the past 3 years. I recently started going to the new location on Lincoln since the one in Bushwick is too far for me since I moved out to queens. I am thankful to Russell for always finding great hair stylist.

    Haley may does the most fantastic job with my hair!!! She knows exactly the color & tone I am looking for — and always makes it perfect it every time.

    She works very well with BOTH women and men's hair!!! So if you need someone to help you out with your hair, go go go see her :)

    Been cutting my own hair and trimming my own beard for years but thought I’d treat myself and went to Maxwell’s. Diane made me look so good that I decided to go out and show it off. I’ve been going back regularly ever since. They’ve got good music, conversation, and drinks too. 15/5 stars.
  • Christin M. September 9, 2018 via Yelp
    Wonderfully cozy neighborhood hair joint. With very little notice on a Saturday afternoon, the gals at Maxwell's accommodated me to shave my head for the very first time. My husband gets his hair cuts with Russell here but it was my first time and I was pleasantly surprised by the decor and ambiance. Very welcoming and intimate. Diane was awesome and attentive. They also were very helpful with suggestions for donating my long ponytail (I assumed dying my hair prevented me from donating but there – show
  • Liza T. July 8, 2018 via Yelp
    Cannot speak highly enough of my experience at Maxwell's for hair. If you're looking to do a big color change (or small!) go to Haley. She took me from a single process on dark non-bleached hair to an awesome double process purple/violet/indigo shade. I was nervous going into it as my hair was previously dyed at a different place, but she took the time to assess what was in my hair and explained every step of the process thoroughly to me. I love that she is super communicative and made sure I lo – show

  • Hunter Ellenbarger July 1, 2018, 7:35 pm via Google
    I’ve been loyally going to Russell at Maxwell’s for 4 years and have never had anything but amazing, personal service and the best hair days of my life!

    All of the stylists are friendly, hilarious and talented and there’s absolutely no snobbery like I’ve experienced in other top Brooklyn salons.

    There’s a reason he’s been able to open two stores so quickly – they’re genuinely the best in Brooklyn!
  • Hunter E. July 1, 2018 via Yelp
    I'm beyond loyal to Maxwell's for Hair. Russell hooked me up with the best haircut of my life about 4 years ago and I'll never go anywhere else. Now that he has his own shop, it's been amazing seeing him bring in even more talent with his super pro staff. They're all personable, hilarious and most importantly skilled. I had so many bad experiences at pretentious barber shops before I found them and now I'll never go anywhere else.

    Also, free beer!
  • Bill V. July 1, 2018 via Yelp
    New York's hottest barbershop Maxwell's. This place has everything: gorgeous interior, amazing barbers, 90s music, free water, dozens of plants and warm towels to the face.

    I've been coming to Maxwell's for four years and Russell has changed my life! He was my barber at another shop and then he left to open his own shop. Within two years he's opened this new location in Crown Heights and the new team is amazing.

    It's a haircut it's therapy it's everything.
  • Taylor S. May 7, 2018 via Yelp
    Russell has been my guy for the past two years and I was DEVASTATED when I moved to Crown Heights and had to look for another hair shop. Little did I know, Russell (the savvy business man that he is) opened up this shop right around the same time I moved! I'm not saying that he did it for me, but it's quite the coincidence and I love him for it.

    Maxwell's is hands down the best around and I wouldn't trust any of the other neighborhood shops with my hair.
  • Travis Mark February 21, 2018, 9:04 pm via Google
    Russell knows hair and gave me an amazing haircut. Will be coming back for sure!
