It's all true! – I have been in the Birmingham area for a couple of years now and have migrated from one salon to the next looking for someone who could color and style my hair in a natural way that made me more confident. I have found him, Shawn Gamel is amazing.
I read many reviews about Shawn from Blonde Salon and Spa and also from Urban Style Salon and decided I had nothing to lose. This was by far my best decision in a while. My color has never looked as vibrant and natural which I have always been told is "difficult for a blonde", he explained to me that this was not the case and he was right. I have been to Shawn twice now and I believe my hair actually looks better this time than the first which is amazing to me.
The salon is beautiful, it feels more like you're visiting your friend at their home instead of a salon which I adore. Chris, the owner, was very warm and welcoming and I am very happy to have found my new salon.
Thank you both!! and thank everyone who left the reviews which ultimately led me to my new stylist. I have never felt more beautiful!
Wonderful hair place! – Christopher Northington has cut my hair for over 6 years and I highly recommend him--and this great salon in Homewood!
Christopher has wonderful instincts, not only with ways to style hair but how to approach people. He knows when I need to laugh, vent, or just be still in the chair and let him work his magic.
Since going to Christopher, I receive many compliments on my hair. The compliments are not just the day of the cut or afterwards, but for weeks afterwards. Talk about the gift that keeps giving!
If you are looking for a hair professional with a great personal touch, be sure and check out Christopher and this salon.
Shawn Gamel is Priceless! – Shawn has been my stylist for almost four years now, and I would NOT trade him for the world! I have had other stylists before, but I have never felt that any of them knew what was best for me. Shawn makes the best decisions for my style. I love knowing that I can just stop by, sit, relax, and be completely confident that he'll do the rest. My color is always perfect. I have never had to return for any adjustments. Sometimes I wonder if Shawn moonlights as a chemist because this man knows his color! He is very meticulous about what he chooses, and the Goldwell brand never disappoints. This is very important in my case because my skin is extremely sensitive. After being told by my doctor that I had to stop coloring my hair, Shawn told me not to worry. He worked his magic and found a solution. I've been safely coloring ever since! Pay Shawn a visit! You will love him, and the Urban Style Salon.
Shawn Gamel the BEST colorist & stylist! – I have been a client for 3 years and would tell you that no one has ever come close to making my hair look as great as Shawn does every time I see him. It is great going to someone who is always learning about new products and techniques. He cares about what will work best with your hair type when hearing about different products such as when he started using Paul Mitchell's Awapuwi Keritin Treatment six weeks ago on my hair. It has worked great with my Goldwell color he uses which is fantastic for any hair color. The Awapuwi treatment has cut my hair drying time by more than half and leaves it smooth and silky for days.
Urban Style Salon has a fabulous atmosphere and you will love Christopher and Shawn, so be sure to call today!
Best Salon around! – I went to Urban Style following my favorite stylist in the world, Greg Barry, and I am so glad that I did. I loved the style and atmosphere of the salon-- very much a place specializing in individualized attention. It was peaceful, beautiful, and full of laughter at times. I would trust Greg with anything he wanted to do with my hair-- I have never been disappointed, and he always makes me feel beautiful and special! This is my salon from now on!
Urban Style Salon is an inviting, professional salon and provides the best service in town. The salon has great atmosphere and the stylists are friendly, which is unusual for upscale salons. Christopher has been styling my hair for a few years now and I have never been more pleased with my look. He learns his client's personality and expertly combines that with the right look for your face resulting in the perfect hair style and/or color. If I am not in a mood to make decisions, I know Christopher will make a decision I am more than pleased with. I have never been disappointed. And the stylists go the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable at the salon. Thank you!!!
