What a PRO! – I had a great experience! Wendi consulted with me first before cutting my hair, she asked me what kind of look I wanted, told me how she was going to cut my hair to achieve that look. It gave me the confidence to let her do her thing. I left the Salon with a very chic look, she showed me what products to use on my hair to maintain my look when styling my hair at home. She is a real pro! My hair looks great and I am definitely marking her in my book as my permanent hairstylist!
Thank you Cristina - I am so glad you love your hair! See you soon :)
Wendi Adams – Thank you to everyone for all the kind reviews! I just now saw them as I was prompted by a client that said that is how she found me. You are all wonderful clients and I am so glad you are happy with your hair :)))

YES! she is the best! – She knows more about hair and the "why's" of why your hair is either breaking or not growing or whatever problem you may be having.
So you can address the cause of the problem and not just keep treating the symptoms...
She figured out why my hair was breaking in one place and not others, she figured out the best way for my hair to look and be thicker, she's just awesome!
Also...when she was done my hair felt "heavy" in a good way! It was no longer thin and wispy on the bottom. I felt the weight of thick ends which was great for me.
My hair actually looked longer when I left my appointment. I love her!!!
If you want great hair and want it to stay that way it's definitely worth going to see her.
Color, cut and blow-dry genius! – I have a rave referral for anyone looking for a hair
stylist who can cut and color with equal brilliance - Wendi Adams of Maxfield's Hair Color Studio in Studio City. She is just amazing...
I met Wendi when I had a hair color disaster from another hair stylist who was supposed to give me buttery highlights, and my hair came out yellow straw like Woodstock from the Peanuts. I thought Wendi would have to shave it all off and start over, but by the time she was done with me, I had a soft, buttery highlighted hair again and a GREAT cut - she can give a blow-out like no one else I know. My hair always looks so amazing that people comment upon the color/cut even as it grows out. And no, I don't get a kickback for this rave or anything ;-) she's just so good I wanted to spread the word. I've referred other friends to her and they've become devotees,too.
She does a lot of celebrities, does photo shoots and preps hair for red carpet events - she does a lot of "Oscar hair." OK Magazine named Maxfield's as an L.A. hot pick. I can't recommend Wendi and Maxfield's highly enough - they can cut, color and blow-dry with equal brilliance! AND they listen to what the client wants. Just go once, and you'll see what I mean.
Superb in Color, Cuts, and Extentions – Wendy is absolutely amazing at what she does. She truly cares about quality, and making her clients happy. She is a master at color, color correction and protein bond extensions. If your hair is a dry or brittle, she offers an Ionic hair treatment that actually REPAIRS the hair. Her intimate studio at the Chess and Burman salons in Studio City, is welcoming and very private. I suffered for many years trying to find someone like her. I'm happy, and lucky to have found someone I can trust, and depend on. She never fails me!
Best Hair Color and Cut! – O.k., I work as a private sub-contractor for a secret shopping firm and we recently screened a number of hair salons, skin care professionals and day spas over the first 2 quarters of 2008 for the Ventura Boulevard area. Here is what we concluded for hair stylists/colorists. The best cutting and color team is Wendy Adams and Solina Tabrizi of Maxfield's which is actually located inside Chess & Burman Salons in Studio City, CA. Both have had their work published and do various celebrities as well as film, music and television work, though we found them to be rather professionally humble, discreet and protective of their celeb clientele. Nevertheless, their work is superb! Both have worked as a team in the L.A. area for many years and deserve all the accolades for their professionalism and their talents they've received and then some. Solina is noted as one of our top 5 cutters ever reviewed and Wendy was considered in our top 3 colorists for all of southern California!!!!! Highly recommended. Very professional, yet friendly and inviting. For those of you who have been to Chess & Burman, please note Wendy and Solina have a larger studio than most and have created a very comfortable yet professional setting. They will do whatever they can to attend to your needs from ordering lunch in, loading up a movie in the flat screen or just simply letting you have quiet reading time.....it truly is the client's choice. In addition there is no feeling of rush or arrogance like many salons seem to project. We had 3 secret shoppers attend on seperate visits and all concurred Wendy and Solina were their TOP CHOICE! and that's rare. Also, great parking, evening appointments, available for photo shoots, film, television, music video, and print work. WARNING advance bookings usually required as they are very busy.
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Studio City stylist--located inside Chess and Burman salon--specializes in color correction and hair extensions.
my favorite haircut ever! – I am new in town and know nothing about it as I am here on a 2 year business contract. I didn't know where to go and since I travel all the time, I am used to contacting the Concierge at the hotels I stay in for recommendations, so I called the Concierge at the Hilton Universal. They highly recommended Wendy at Maxfield's in Chess & Burman. First off...this place is different! I recently moved here from Atlanta where most high end salons are in store fronts or Peachtree District Homes....this place was a private studio among several others and I loved it! MOST IMPORTANTLY I got the best haircut I have ever had! Seriously, I have paid upwards of $150 for haircuts in New York and Miami and never was as happy as I am with this short and sassy summer look for a fraction of that - I can go from messy funky to sophisticated and edgy business woman in 15 minutes. I made an appointment for color in 2 weeks and based on what I saw on other clients while I was there, I am really looking forward to it, 2 great blondes were leaving as I was coming in.....very excited for my color appointment....I'll write again after my next visit! thanx again
great! – What a relief ! I found a stylist that can color long hair. I have been seeing stylists 2 to 3 times max, before I end up going elsewhere. This is the first time I have had a stylist actually do exactly what I wanted the first visit. Color has been my problem everytime till now. Wendy, all I have to say is thank you, thank you, thank you, my highlights look great, I'll be back in March :)
Together Again! – I am so happy I found Wendy again. I moved away for work in the Sant Fe area and have had so many unhappy hair-mishaps, I thought it was never going to get better. Fortunately I am back in L.A. and was able to see Wendy at the new location! Thank you for fixing my mess :) By the way the free parking is a big bonus and love the private setting - most of all my hair was rescued....no more orange blotchy streaks! as usual you're the only hair colorist I can ever trust!
