Best Pedicure in Austin! – I have lived in Austin for almost three years and have been to all over town trying to find a place to get a good pedicure and I have finally found it. This place is reasonablly priced and the service is great. You get a private room and you don't have to worry that you are spending a fortune. I high recommend this place. It is great too if you want to go with a friend. You should definitely try this place out!
Excellent haircuts, questionable customer service – I recently treated my mother to a haircut/conditioning treatment at Max Fx for her birthday. I was very excited about the day because she never gets the opportunity to go anywhere nice to be pampered. However, upon arriving, my proud smile quickly faded and turned to embarrasment when, while standing at the counter waiting to be acknowledged, I was completely ignored for at least a full minute by not one, but three people. For the amound of money I was spending on my tight budget I had hoped and expected for much better sercive, (and respect). Fortunately, thanks to Amanda, my mothers birthday experience was salvaged by friendly service, a beautiful haircut and a wonderful pampering treatment at the shampoo bowl. I received a great cut from Juan to, who was also very friendly and professional. Thank you Amanda and Juan. We decided to return strictly for the both of you, not for the lackluster customer service at the front desk.
Juan is a must. – I've been going to Juan since this salon was on the Drag. After many years of service (I've even sent my mother, roommates, boyfriend and out-of-town guests), I am still happy with him. Unfortunately, I've seen the salon mature and with it some growing pains have been nagging the little salon that could. Some of the front desk ladies are often too busy to help or simply unprofessional and rude. I even had some girlie tell me I talked too loud when Juan was drying out my hair. Frankly, if it was not for Juan, I would not take the drive down 2222 to go here. Now, there are actually some great salons here in Austin that will treat you to top customer service. If you must go, go see Juan.
We thank you for your honest feedback regarding your most recent experience at MFX. We certainly do appreciate your referrals and your loyalty since our days on "The Drag". However, it wouldn't be fair if we didn't have an opportunity to further explain the reasons for our actions during your visit. In our 16 years of doing business in the community, we have never had to ask a client to respect those around them who are also receiving services. What you failed to mention in your comment was that profanity was the real reason for our asking you to please "keep it down". We realize that in no way did you intend to offend anyone as you were merely carrying on a casual, yet audible conversation with Juan. Unfortunately, other clients were bothered by this, brought it to our attention and we felt the need to step in. We apologize if this offended you and do hope you understand our position.

Best Aesthetician In Town – I have been to some of the most expensive in Austin and can compare --- Tess at MaximumFX is by far the best aesthetician I have ever been to and affordable! I receive compliments on my skin after my appointments with Tess. I will NEVER go anywhere else and if you haven't tried her facials than make an appt. You won't be disappointed.
LOVE IT!!!!!!!!! – This was the most comfortable place!!! The staff are very accomidating, and seemed toactually care about me. I was pampered and loved every minute of it. I went in as a model with angelia, Got a cut and colored my hair, I am very happy with it. Would recommend her to anyone. She was sweet, friendly and very professional, and exuded an aura of confidence in everything she did.
Erica is still a great stylist. – I've been going to Erica for a few years now. I don't know if anyone else is a good stylist there, but she has consistently been amazing. Her prices have gone up over the years and sometimes her schedule is packed, but she really is worth it. I tried out another salon recently because I was frustrated that I would have to wait 2 weeks for an appointment with Erica. Bad idea! She fixed the bad cut I got at the other salon. Great job Erica! You rock!!
Lackluster experience – My skin is the kind where even strangers come up to me and comment about how I am glowing after I get a facial. No one had any idea I had recieved a facial after my visit to Maximum FX. Skin felt worse after my facial. In fact it was dry, flaky, starving for moisture. Girl attending me could give a tinker's dime about what she was doing. Not my first facial, but indeed my last with Maximum FX.
We'd like to learn more about your experience. We pride ourselves on giving the best possible service to all of our clients. Any additional feedback regarding your recent visit and service would be greatly appreciated. Please know that your health is very important to us and we would like to address any reaction potentially caused by your spa facial.
Yours In Service,

Good experience – I have been visiting Javier for cuts and colors for some time and that will continue. He is very particular about everything he does, and that comforts me considering some of the hair traumas I've endured at the hands of other stylists. Everyone that works there is gracious and helpful. The manicurist, Norma, does great work and is very pleasant. I would highly recommend this salon and spa.
Great Haircuts if you dont mind a little attitude – Let me start by saying I love this salon and for the most part, the people that work there are pretty friendly. Having said that, there are some stylists there that have just a little too much attitude. Sometimes I feel judged by some anorexic 20-something with pink hair and an eyebrow piercing. Other than the occasional diva and impoliteness, Maximum Fx is also pretty over priced. I understand if you want a salon haircut by a well trained professional you are going to have to pay more but sometimes I just dont feel a trim and highlights is worth $200.
