After working with the same Tennessee hair stylist for years, I was absolutely petrified at the thought of letting anyone else touch my hair - but then, I found Micah! She did a beautiful job on my blonde highlights. I highly recommend

After moving from ATL almost 2yrs ago I've been in search of a salon to call "home" in Birmingham, AL. After 4 unsuccessful attempts from several well known local spots, I found Urban Style in Homewood @ 6mos ago.

I once worked with a girl that always had fabulous hair styles and color and I constantly was raving about how awesome her hair looked. I asked her who did her hair and that is how I found Christopher. Six years later I have followed

I moved to Birmingham from New York and had a hard time finding a stylist. Christopher Northington saved my sanity and my hair. Intuitive, professional, and does great color- he's a keeper.

Let me just say this, if I wish I had more time and space in which to write but let me just say that after just having moved to Bham and having a HORRIBLE experience at Fringe Salon I found Shawn. Not only was he able to work with my existing cut (which is not super complicated but is very detailed), he is funny and cool and obviously has the experience to deviate from the cookie-cutter dos they teach in cosmo school. I would not trust anyone else in this town. (except Chris, the owner ;)

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!!!

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!

For anyone who prefers an elegant, yet relaxed non-judgmental atmosphere, Urban Style Salon is the place for you! I love how the guys there make you feel like their number one client from the moment you walk in the salon. We've all had a negative experience at a salon before, but Urban Style is much different!

Christopher Northington does a fantastic job of listening to what you would like done. His communicative approach is fabulous, and I always walk out of the salon with exactly the color and cut that I wanted. I have never been disappointed.

I always look forward to my appointments with Christopher! He is top notch!

For years I have been known to drive from Atlanta to Nashville for a good haircut and FINALLY I found Shawn at Urban Style Salon! Shawn has a very special talent for cutting hair. He stays current with what is happening in the hair business and is constantly learning to keep his clients looking their best. People are always stopping to ask me who does my hair and that is a great compliment!! You will not regret giving him a try!!

I have trusted my hair (and secrets) to Christopher Northington for about 8 years now. He has become a dear friend of mine and I am so proud of his new salon Urban Style, located in downtown Homewood, AL. Ever since Christopher has been coloring and cutting my hair, I have been "that girl" who everyone wants to know who does your hair. An appointment with him is like meeting a friend to hangout for a while, except you leave looking better than you arrived! He is an expert colorist and knows what will work for you and what will not. Several of my friends and co-workers are now loyal clients of his. He achieves a balance of professionalism and friendliness that will keep you coming back. Christopher has transformed Urban Style Salon into a chic and inviting space that you can truly relax and feel at ease in. It is evident your comfort and experience are a priority to him. I would recommend Christopher Northington to anyone looking for a new stylist or to anyone looking for a new look. He keeps up with hair trends as well as fresh takes on classic hairstyles. I would not trust my hair to anyone else.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Christopher Northington. He has been cutting and coloring my hair for almost 4 years now. I feel like he has become a close friend of mine over that time. I always look forward to my appointments with him. He does a wonderful job and I trust him 100% with my hair. He always seems to know what will look best!

His new salon, Urban Style Salon, is amazing. It is gorgeous! The salon is an extremely relaxing place to be. He has done such a great job.

I definitely reccomend Christopher to anyone looking for a new stylist. I promise you will not be dissapointed.

Christopher Northington has been my stylist for more than 5 years. In that time, I can honestly say that every visit has been such a great experience. This is because Christopher is the utmost professional with the highest standards and the greatest attention to detail. What's even better is that because I trust his ability and opinion about my hair so implicitly, I can just relax during my appointment and enjoy the conversation. A visit to Christopher was like visiting a friend, even when I first started going to him. He has the rare combination of being both a perfectionist and being warm and friendly.

Christopher recently opened Urban Style Salon in Homewood, and he has transferred all of his meticulous attention to detail and professionalism to the salon. The setting is beautiful yet relaxing, extremely clean (even the smocks are folded perfectly!), and efficient. His number one concern is the client's satisfaction and comfort.

After an appointment with Christopher, I feel beautiful and get lots of compliments on my hair. Christopher is simply the best!

I've been going to Christopher for several years and was so excited when he opened Urban Style in Homewood. The salon is absolutely amazing with such a peaceful atmosphere.

My stylist of almost 5 years has recently moved out of the state. Any of you women can relate to my distress! I read many reviews over the past few weeks (my hair was almost 3 weeks over grown at this point) and finally decided to check out Shawn at Urban Style. I read many reviews about him while he was with Blonde Salon and made the call.

The experience was phenomenal, he listened to my concerns of changing salons, as well as about my hair, he was very patient with me and made me feel comfortable. The color is amazing, it's like i haven't skipped a beat, the Awaphui *spelling? treatment has given my hair a new life. It's shiny again and the cut was exactly what we talked about. I am very happy to have found my new stylist with out any bad experiences in between!!!

The salon is very boutique, well designed, and feels like you're at home as soon as you enter. The staff were all friendly and I will definitely recommend Shawn to my friends.
