Hair by Maxim

Hair Salon - hairdresser


Online booking with the pink button below!
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”. Nevermind 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 at Hair by Maxim?
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 hairtype and the result you
are looking for, also if that means a colour treatment.
Maxim’s products
With a preference for natural hair products and continuing passion to create fresh
new styles for his clients, Maxim has built a reputation for interpreting established
hairstyles in a contemporary way.
Two brands are used in his salon. Living Proof and Kevin Murphy for washing,
treatments and colourings. With the former brand created by an MIT professor,
who adds molecules to strengthen hair, and the latter all-natural brand developed by
the famous Australian hair genius, you are in exceptionally good hands – even the
colourings are ammonium-free.
Maxim’s story
Maxim learned his trade at several hairdressing schools in Belgium, before venturing
to Berlin to complete an internship at the hairsalon Design by Berghain. Since then,
he’s worked freelance across Belgium, earning a loyal fan base in the process. His
current salon in the heart of Brussels, a stone’s throw from Flagey and the European
Commission, is a childhood dream come true. Perseverance and patience, and the
encouragement of friends helped to make it happen – as well as his continuing
efforts to improve his skills through monthly supplementary lessons.

Maxim and his assistant are life changers! They make your hair look and feel fabulous, and they are the kindest and most professional hair dressers ever (!). Like ever. The salon setting is very calm and relaxing. Tea and cookies are served during your hair treatment. I really recommend Maxim and his assistant to everyone who is looking for a top notch hair service!

Super talented hairdresser very close to the European institutions and Flagey, but makes you feel like a local with the friendly and relaxed vibe!

Excellent hairdresser, super-efficient and very nice! Takes the time to listen to and understand what the client wants, and uses excellent products. Highly recommended!

My new favorite hairdresser ! Based on the excellent reviews I made an appointment with Maxim. You can book immediately via his Facebookpage, I spoke with Maxim on the phone and I felt that the contact was great. Once arrived Maxim gives a warm and personalized welcome. He gives a clear advice on what he think it’s the best, based on his experience, he gives an efficient and intuitive idea of the color and haircut. You receive a full hair treatment that is really great, consist of 4 treatments; detox, washing, mask and extra protection. The result is fantastic, the coloration that is by the way fully natural without any chemicals, is really great. The haircut is very natural and feminine, just what I had in mind. So conclusion, you can trust on the advice and the work of Maxim, he gives a personal touch and feedback and takes time to listen to his clients. So what are you waiting for !

I had a great experience with Maxim. He is very talented! He suggested a great approach to changing my hair, both color and cut, and the outcome was fabulous. I love my new hair and I am so happy I found him. I highly recommend Maxim to everyone!

You will certainly not regret it!

There's only one hairdresser who get's my haircut right everytime again. Merci Maxim!

stien.sidgwick Fri 6 May 2016 - 11:52

I went for a face treatment at Alchimie. never experienced a treatment as personalized and professional as this one! After the analysis of the skin I got a treatment with adapted products from Dr. Nobis. I was surprised by the quality of this herbal products! My skin felt revitalized and superclean! The long facial massage, with special techniques, is ideal for relaxing and helps detoxing. Having this treatment at Alchimie was a great experience! I will definitely go back, and discover the other services!

shaerin.verzelen Tue 26 Apr 2016 - 13:08

This is the Beauty spot place to be! The service is topnotch and Maxim did an excellent job giving me the perfect haircut. You can feel that you are been traited with care and he got talent uses high standard products and my curls haven't been this beautiful since ages. The salon breaths out a classy retro style clean and quiet. I am looking forward to visit their spa, listed full with nice treatments! I highly recommend them!

Mon 25 Apr 2016 - 10:08

Very pleasant experience. Everything was wonderful about it!

Lili Thu 21 Apr 2016 - 23:30

A revelation for me - the salon is calm and relaxing, with a stylist who gives you undivided attention from the moment you walk through the door. The natural products and treatments are excellent, the cut was thoughtfully discussed and not rushed, tips are to improve general care (and not up-selling for a change). This place makes you feel like you have your own personal hairdresser.

eleni Wed 20 Apr 2016 - 01:03

highly recommended! very happy with my haircut! my long and brittle hair loved the treatment. the products are the best i have ever used!

A new concept in Brux which combines : spa, hairsaloon & style. It's really a magic and cosy place. Maxime takes care of every little details and the K. Murphy 's products are really amazing.

Wed 13 Apr 2016 - 13:48

Le meilleur de coiffeur de Bxl !

Ilse A. Thu 21 Sep 2017 - 13:15

Eerste keer in jaren dat ik na twee keer bij eenzelfde kapper te zijn geweest, nog wil terugkeren. Maxim neemt de tijd om te luisteren naar wat je wilt én om te bekijken wat wel of niet bij jou of je haarstructuur past. Luistert ook naar wat je NIET wil, maw. ik heb eindelijk nog eens een kapper gevonden zonder die bizarre 'laagjes-laagjes-laagjes'-obsessie. Mijn kapsel is heel eenvoudig, maar in tegenstelling tot de meeste kappers (en ik heb er al véél bezocht in alle prijsklassen!) kijkt Maxim daar niet op neer en knipt hij dat simpele kapsel met evenveel zorg. Bedankt Maxim en tot de volgende afspraak!

Mon 14 Aug 2017 - 10:17

Bravo Maxim tu es un vrai pro doublé très agréable personnalité et une grande sensibilité, ce qui est un atout dans ton métier et ta passion.

eveopdreef Fri 23 Jun 2017 - 19:03

Quand on déménage, c'est toujours difficile de retrouver 'ton coiffeur', mais déjà après la première visite je savais que Maxim était mon 'match'! Il est super sympa, il t'écoute vraiment et il cherche la meilleure coupe avec toi! Je me sens super à l'aise et il sait ce qu'il fait! 5 stars only for Hair by Maxim!

Fri 12 May 2017 - 20:08

Maxim est le coiffeur dont on rêve toutes. Il a sauvé une coloration ratée. Les soins sont parfaits et Maxim est plein de gentillesse et de bonne humeur. Je recommande +++.

Irwin1987 Tue 25 Apr 2017 - 15:02

Quand j'ai visité ma soeur à Ixelles la semaine dernière elle m'a proposé de faire un broshing. alors elle m'a proposé Hair by Maxim at Alchimie et c'était bon. Merci à la coiffeuse( je connais pas son nom : P).

hanne Wed 29 Mar 2017 - 15:54

ik ben mega fan. ik ben mega fan. ik ben mega fan.

Sat 25 Mar 2017 - 16:59

Enorm gezellig salon, met lekkere koffie, toffe muziek en bovenal: een geweldige kapper! Buitengestapt met de perfecte snit en balayage! Aanrader!

Fri 17 Mar 2017 - 17:14

Tres serviable, ambiance agreable et je resors toujours avec une coupe tres soignee!

Thu 2 Mar 2017 - 19:46

Bienveillant, à l'écoute et super professionnel. Maxim est LE coiffeur que j'ai toujours cherché. Il prend vraiment le temps d'écouter ce qu'on souhaite (même si la coupe est un projet en plusieurs étapes). Au top si vous souhaitez être chouchouté dans une ambiance décontractée et "sans prise de tête".

pjacquemin00 Tue 27 Dec 2016 - 19:58

Merci beaucoup Maxim! J'adore la coupe et le balayage, exactement ce que j'avais en tête! Très professionnel et très amicale. J'ai passé un très bon moment passé dans le salon Je reviendrai!

Vraiment Top! Un coiffeur sympa, à l'écoute et qui prend soin de ses clients. Un vrai moment de détente et un beau sourire en voyant le résultat!

maharaja Thu 7 Jul 2016 - 11:39

ENFIN un coiffeur à Bruxelles digne de ce nom. Merci Maxime pour ce moment de plaisir ! Je suis sortie transformée (coupe et couleur) pour un prix raisonnable. J'ai eu plein de compliments. A bientôt !

h.dhond Fri 1 Jul 2016 - 11:00

Je me suis rendue hier pour la première fois au salon de Maxime. Très accueillant, il a veillé à ce que mon temps passé au salon soit un moment de plaisir. Très professionnel, très bons produits. Prix adaptés au travail fournit. Je n'ai eu que des compliments sur ma nouvelle coupe et couleur (ombrage): très bien réalisées : ) Je vous le recommande ;).

koen_deprez Sun 26 Jun 2016 - 22:18

Fantastische ontvangt, concept compleet. Toffe muziek enz. Z.

alanvanz Sun 26 Jun 2016 - 22:07

Mega leuke kapperervaring. Ik zie uit naar het volgende bezoek.

ann.overbergh Sun 19 Jun 2016 - 10:00

Aanrader! Lang geleden dat ik zo blij uit een kapsalon wegstapte. Maxime neemt uitgebreid zijn tijd om uit te zoeken wat goed bij je past. Hij luistert naar je + voegt daar zijn eigen advies aan toe. In een relaxte sfeer en met enkel de beste, gezondste producten. Een echte perfectionist ook. Niet twijfelen!

tinkaclaeys Wed 1 Jun 2016 - 23:12

Eindelijk een Nederlandstalige kapper gevonden in Brussel die je niet alleen hartelijk ontvangt en ruim de tijd neemt voor een topnotch behandeling met natuurlijke producten maar ook goed luistert en gewoon heel precies knipt. Je zou bijna elke week naar de kapper willen. A hidden gem.

Tue 31 May 2016 - 09:43

Le coiffeur est super sympa, on se sent super à l'aise et le résultat est au top!

Anthony Sat 21 May 2016 - 11:03

Zalig! Maxim knipt u haar terwijl dat je een koffie drinkt, goeie muziek en dat allemaal in een toffe buurt in brussel. Ben echt content met mijn kapsel! Zeker een aanrader!
