WHO ARE WE?
Maxim Fonteyne’s hair styling philosophy is relatively uncomplicated. The Brussels-based hairstylist’s starting point is always to give his customer “a natural cut that’s easy to maintain”. Never mind magazines or blogs for inspiration; at Hair by Maxim, the client is the catalyst, and the goal is to create a cut that carries the Maxim signature, but can be styled without fuss at home.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
In the calm atmosphere of his salon —with a cup of coffee or tea and some relaxing tunes playing Maxim starts off your appointment with a free, personalized consultation of just a few short questions, to get an idea of the what you have in mind. He then combines the perfect products suited to hair type and the result you are looking for, also if that means a colour treatment.
When searching the world for our ingredients, Kevin.Murphy looked for companies that use micro cultivation, organic growing practices, or ecologically sound wild harvesting techniques to ensure the Kevin.Murphy range is of the very highest natural quality. Vitamins and amino acids repair the outer surface of the hair, thickening the hair and reducing the formation of split ends. Moisturisers from Mango butter and Murumuru butter smooth the cuticles and soften the hair. Extracts from Peruvian Bark, Baobab, Bamboo and Orange Blossom infuse the hair with weightless moisture. Antioxidants from Kakadu Plum, Orchid, Lotus Flower and Desert Lime reduce breakage and repair chemical damage naturally. All Kevin.Murphy hair products are sulphate free, paraben free and cruelty free.
Also for color only Kevin Murphy product are used. These high performance/multi-tonal shades provide endless creativity and natural looking results.
Maxim learned his trade in several hairdressing schools in Belgium, before venturing to Berlin to complete an internship at the hair salon Design by Berghain. Since then, he’s worked freelance across Belgium, earning a loyal client base in the process. In 2014, he started a new internship at Toni and Guy where he learned techniques to improve his creativity with haircuts and colour. In 2016, Maxim started his project in the premises of Alchimie, where he had his first experience as an independent hairdresser, working with his own clients. After three years with his salon there, Maxim decided it was time to expand and open a brand new salon in St Gilles. Maxim speaks Dutch, French and English fluently.
