Biography: 

Maxey owns the Jefferson barber shop in "Hair," and it is he who hires Hawkshaw. His brother-in-law, who lives in Porterfield, is also a barber. The unnamed narrator speculates that when Maxey visits Porterfield, he shaves his brother-in-law's customers, "like a sailor will spend his vacation in a rowboat on an artificial lake" (142). The narrator relies on Maxey for information about Hawkshaw and Susan Reed.
