Our exclusive education program allows future high-end stylists to get a feel for working in a high-volume, luxury salon environment. We take a simple, fluff-free approach to education (and to our work), and believe that complicated doesn’t mean good.

At Max and Ro, we believe that you deserve to be happy and wealthy in your career without having to work yourself to the bone, and most importantly, being a drama-free, stress-free, high-earning stylist that spends your days doing what you love surrounded by people that you love. Max & Ro is your biggest support system to reach levels in your career that you didn’t think were possible.

On the surface, our approach to hair is simple–do good work to see good results. In practice, this looks like…

  • Learning to communicate EFFECTIVELY with clients to deliver everything they’re hoping for and more. No more confusion, communication breakdowns, or unaligned appointments.
  • Creating custom maintenance plans for each client, so they feel cared for an on-track for their future hair goals.
  • A process, experience, and results that have your clients continually visiting you, and leaving you RAVING reviews.
  • Gaining new clients through referrals, so you don’t have to spend more time than necessary tracking down new leads.
  • Create intentional space in your business to hold all of your dreams and possibilities.
