Business Spotlight: Maggie's A Fine Hair Salon

For some time now, Nicole Kauffman has dreamed of owning her own hair salon and in September her wish came true when she purchased Maggie’s A Fine Hair Salon in Raymond.

Nicole Kauffman has taken over as
the owner of Maggie's A Fine Hair
Salon in Raymond. She has worked
as a stylist at the family friendly
salon for the past six years.
Located at 1263 Roosevelt Trail in Raymond, Maggie’s offers great styling in a family friendly atmosphere. Services available include cuts, color, foil, Brazilian blowout treatments, face waxing, perms including a cut, shaping and style, a high-performance and oxidant-free glazing color service for endless creative looks, and updo styling, conditioning hair masques with scalp massages, and braiding. Maggie’s also offers Keratin Smoothing Treatment to transform frizzy, dull, and over-processed hair into shiny, brilliant tresses.

“We provide hair service for all ages,” Nicole said. “We have clients from all over Maine. We take appointments and walk-ins. We do men’s hair too, and we are always taking on new customers and offer competitive pricing. Maggie’s offers a variety of services to customize your haircare needs. With a wide range of color techniques, hair smoothing treatments, perming and endless cutting and styling options, we can create a look you will love to wear.”

Nicole has worked as a stylist at Maggie’s for the past six years and along the way has established many great relationships with customers who consider her as family and have come to trust her and the other two stylists at the salon to provide exceptional service and leave happy with the way that their style looks.

“Between all three stylists at the moment, we have been doing hair for many years,” Nicole said. “I have been doing hair since 2003. I love it and there is nothing else I would rather do. I like to learn from the younger customers and the older customers. I love teaching people what I know. I love watching people do hair. I do keep up on trends with cuts and color foil techniques. I take classes and watch tutorials.”

Nicole said that each professional stylist working at Maggie’s A Fine Hair Salon is an independent contractor and they all work long hours while standing throughout the day on behalf of their customers.

“People come to trust us with their hair and to give them what they want,” Nicole said. “For me, I love building relationships with clients. Younger and older, it's an amazing job. The clients have their hair styled, and we talk, but I talk with them as well and learn about their whole life through the years. I love making people happy. Nurses and nursing assistants do it physically and I can do it with hair. I love to see the smile on their face or making someone's day or being there to talk to them. What is said at the salon stays in the salon.”

The challenge for Nicole in her new role as the owner of Maggie’s A Fine Hair Salon is to keep prices low while the cost of everything continues to go up.

“We do love what we do,” she said. “But we try to give the best prices and best service possible. Making people feel good makes us feel good.”

Online reviews are outstanding.

“Nicole does great with foils. I love my hair. I have thick hair and she does the placement perfectly! My hair cut came out perfect! I love my hair so much!” Samantha Rand

“I brought my 3-year-old boy in for a big boy haircut with clippers, not just a trim. I was nervous, not knowing how he would handle it. It was Amazing! Nicole greeted us with a smile, let him walk around to check out the place, which is gorgeous...Clean and fabulously decorated. She was great with my son and finally gave him the cut we were looking for. She was efficient and super sweet with him. We both loved the whole experience! Thank you!!! Highly recommend- we will be back for sure.” Kristen Bolduc

“I have been going to Maggie's for almost 2 years. They have such a welcoming environment, clean, well decorated, relaxing, and the ladies are friendly and fun! My hairdresser listened to all my hair do's and don'ts, looked at my photos of my hair from the past that I liked! I'm always very happy with my highlights, color and cut, so much that I take a pic and post it on Facebook because I feel like a new and improved woman! So, if you need a new do, or some maintenance, this place is awesome! My special thank you to Nicole, you keep me looking gorgeous! Melissa Chute Devio
