About Us

Your new favorite hangout.

MaxCharles is an Award Winning Hair Studio that offers a full spectrum of services including haircutting, advanced color, tape-in and hand-tied weft extensions, weddings, events and airbrush makeup. In August 2018 we were voted number one in Best of the Seacoast by The Seacoast Media Group and were named top 10 Hair Salon in New Hampshire by Best Things New Hampshire. In 2019 we were also named 'Best Of' in Bridal Makeup.


We are committed to providing exceptional services to those who are looking for a place to have fun and leave feeling their best. 


Our salon space has our color bar center stage, allowing an open and creative environment where our Stylists are able to work together. We are always striving to create custom, unique colors for each of our clients and love to formulate together to make sure your service is perfect.

MaxCharles is named after owner Missi's two sons Maxwell and Charles. Missi is a National Color Educator, Platform Artist and owner of the social media and education platform Boss Hair Society. She’s taught on stages in Hollywood, New York and Nashville and works hard to bring the talent she meets on the road and newest trends back to her team.  In 2020 she was named US Artistic Director for Bhave Australia hair care and color.


The Salon is located in beautiful Downtown Portsmouth NH, directly across from the Fleet Street entrance of the Hanover Parking Garage and Gilley's and is neighbors with the Green Room, the Wilder and Franklin Oyster House. 

With top of the line artists and seasoned educators, our promise is to always bring the newest industry trends while customizing them to fit our number one: YOU. We are excited to share our passion with you because at MaxCharles, you come as you are and leave #maxfamous!
