Gwendolyn gave me the best haircut I've had in years. Everyone in my office has been going to her for years and though I've heard of her over the years I paid no attention. I have got to be the pickiest person when it comes to hair. I started coming to Gwen after my last hairdresser retired. I should have gone in to see her sooner!! The cut not only has lasted pass eight weeks the style is so much better on me, all the compliments I have been getting has been almost embarrassing! She only cuts hair so she's very good and very fast too.

I had been to about 5 stylists in the last 5 years until I finally found Oana. She was at a different salon at the time and when she told me she was leaving, I told her I'd follow her anywhere! I love the new salon JBU she's part of now.

I cut my long hair off and donated it few months ago, and I knew Cathy was the only one for the job. Haircuts were not common when I had such long hair. I've lived in Washington for three years now, and I had only gotten my hair cut twice. I met Cathy through relatives who go to her for haircuts. My sister, brother-in-law, niece, and two nephews all go to Cathy for haircuts and would not have it any other way. They have followed her for four years wherever she goes. With that in mind, I knew I had to go to Cathy when I decided to cut my hair off. I did some research online to find her on my own (I didn't want to ask my sister because I wanted it to be a surprise). I called Cathy the same day I wanted to get a haircut. She was able to put time aside to color and cut my hair before the salon closed. I brought my laptop with me, which had a picture on it for reference. I started with that picture, but gave Cathy a lot of changes for the color and cut. I'm very picky and specific when it comes to using shears vs. razors, products in my hair to create a wet style or dry style, etc. I don't leave anything out! She was able to combine the original picture and my changes and comments to create the perfect color and cut for me! I couldn't get over it! I have been having a blast with my hair ever since, and I always look forward to my appointments with Cathy! I love talking to her, and there is never a dull moment! I have gotten countless comments on my haircut and color every since the big change, and everyone always wants to know who did it. I know my family and I will continue to go to Cathy for anything and everything that is HAIR!!

So I have been going to the same hairstylist for a long time and was getting pretty bored. I kept asking her for something new, a different cut or a new color but it never would turn out the way I wanted so I decided it was time for a change!

I started looking online and found a lot of great reviews about Salon JBU and noticed a lot of those reviews were for Megan. So I thought I would try her out! When I went to the salon website and read Megan's bio I thought to myself... shes young, beautful and she has to keep up with the lastest trends...she'll know what to do!!

I made my first appointment with her for color, foil (gotta cover those grays!!) and a haircut and when I was done I knew I made the right decision!! Megan listened to me, she understood what I wanted and how I felt bored with my current look and she gave me her professional opinion on what to do with my hair. Ive been going to Megan for awhile now and everytime I see her I love my hair! The salon is great, everyone is so nice! I would highly recommend Megan to anyone and everyone!

I've been searching for a stylist since I moved here from Minneapolis 10 years ago and I think I finally found her...Cathy at JBU! She knew exactly what to do and took time to match my color and tone down my highlights.
What;s amazing is that when I get up in the morning my hair looks good BEFORE I do anything to it! Now that;s a super cut! My husband commented that my hair looks the best it has ever looked since we came to the Northwest.
Thanks Cathy...I'll be back!

Who says people with short hair can't cut long hair? Megan can and it looks so great!!! I am not very good about choosing a style to compoliment my face but Megan is an expert. I followed her suggestions and got my first layered cut in years. She also gave me one of the best highlight jobs I've had in a long time. Thanks Megan! You are the best.

Megan is the very best hair coloring expert I ever known in the area, she did my color highlight perfect everytime, I am a perfectionist and very picky esp about my hair color. I love Megan's work so much and I got many compliments on my hair highlights everywhere I go. She is awesome and detail oriented, she remembered what I like and what I prefer during every visit. I will never go anywhere else, just Megan can do it right for me!

For the first 3 years I moved to Seattle, I was a hair salon gypsy. I tried famous, well known, well established salons as well as Asian salons with Asian stylists. When I was just about to give up my hope of finding "the one", I found Megan. Since then, I said good bye to my gypsy life and I am completely satisfied whenever I see Megan.
When I see her, I don't usually have a clear image of what I want to do with my hair. Megan takes time to talk/listen to me to figure out what I really want to do, and she gives me great result every time. I get lots of compliments on my hair, even from total strangers (that shows I'm not the only one who thinks my hair looks fabulous!) My last visit was a hair color/highlight, which I have never done in my life (oh, but I'm not a teenager. I'm old enough to have a kid or two.) It took longer than I expected, but that's because she wanted to make sure that the color was right and most of all, I WAS HAPPY with the color. I also like her honesty and eagerness to get my feedback. Every time I see her, she tell me that if I don't like whatever she did (after I go home), if things don't work out, let her know so I'll be happier and she'll be a better stylist for me. I am very happy with Megan and am continue to be her client!

Cons: Busy on weekends, Tight parking spots

I live in Tucson, and my mom lives in the Seattle area. Whenever I'm there for a visit I like to go to JBU and always request Megan for my cut and color. She does a great job, and I have curly hair, so my haircuts are not always an easy task. She is easy to talk to, and is always willing to work with me to figure out the best way to get my cut and color just the way I want.

I'm really looking forward to my next visit!

After years of commuting to a hair stylist, I finally decided to try someone more local. A friend recommended going to Megan at JBU Salon... And I'm glad I did! Megan had some great ideas for my hair, but also listened to what I wanted to do with it. She made sure to keep in mind that I have a toddler and can't always " do" my hair. So if I can't make it in for a foil as often as I'd like, my hair still looks good. Now when I go in I don't have to make suggestions on what to do, I trust her with my hair. She is up to date with styles and is very professional. You can tell she has a passion for hair and of course her clients. That is what keeps me coming back and recommending her to friends and family.

I am so very picky when it comes to my hair because it seldom looks good even when I put in what seems like half a days work into it. Sadly I also think that my hair is my best feature. So you can imagine how I have struggled finding a hairdresser. I have found 2 in my 30 years living in the NW. One retired a few years after I started coming to him and the other moved away only after a few cuts.

After much research and asking around people that I thought had a good haircut I found Gwen. She's God sent! I booked my appointment online and that in itself is wonderous. The parking lot was a little full but I managed after a couple of rounds. (avoid lunch time) The salon was clean and not as stuck up as some highend salons that I've been to. Gwen was running 10mins late but I didn't mind because it gave me time to check out her work on her previous client. (Who looked great and was very happy) She was very quick and to the point which was different but I like the no BS approach. The sampoo was good but not as pampering as some that I've had, then again I was here for a cut not a massage. She did something I've never experienced before: She gave me a haircuting class. By the time she was done, which was again very fast, I felt like I could instruct anyone to cut my hair. Then she showed me how to style it! Not just push a bunch of products at me but actually a lesson on how to style my hair and that was even faster. I loved how it looked but doubt that I could recreate it. Then she told me to come in for a bang trim in between cuts, again something I never even heard of. Lastly she surprised me by telling me to book eight weeks out instead of my usual five weeks. I thought she's got to be kidding me.

It's been several haircuts now and I have to say I still LOVE my hair and I adore Gwen! I go in for the bang trim she suggested and she does more than just my bangs at no cost! I have been able to style my hair in less than ten minutes in the morning and it still looks good at the end of my day. It's a little long in eight weeks but I don't mind as much as I'd thought. I've also come to appreciate her no nonsense attitude. She's friendly and funny but she doesn't have all that "I am an artist" BS.

I have gone to JBU for about a year for my haircuts; my daughter had her hair fixed there for Prom - all great. Unfortunately, about 6 weeks ago, I was referred to Megan for color and the result has been disastrous. I wanted my haircolor to gradually be lightened through highlighting to become closer in color to my increasing grey roots in order to avoid the monthly root touch-up. Megan applied highlights but also used a color darker than my natural hair at the roots unbeknowst to me. When she removed the foil, she was as surprised as I was and made some indication that another stylist had advised her to use the darker color. Although at that moment it looked alright, it did not get me any closer to avoiding root touch-up monthly. Megan indicated we would see how the color grew out and correct if need be.
Five weeks later I again had the one-inch white roots with what looks as though a black Magic Marker had been used to draw a dark line between my roots and the rest of my hair. It took me three calls to get Megan to return my call. She was cool and unconcerned and left a message that I should call the receptionist and let the receptionist know what I was calling about. When I finally was able to connect with Megan, she admitted it would probably take at least two complete foils to correct the dark line and dark roots. In addition, she would make no price adjustment and instead was going to charge me the same $150 again. I am a single mom who works two jobs and am not able to afford $150.00 every six weeks. My recommendation is to avoid Megan??s handiwork at all costs. I would not have been so upset if she had owned her misjudgment in even the slightest way or shown any concern at all. Megan is unprofessional and incompetent at this stage of her career.

Gwen gave me a hair cut more than one month ago, and I did not have any bad hair day since. In the past, my hair can look messy and fuzzy if I did not take care of it. However, her hair cut requires very little maintenance. My hair always look good even after I use cheap hair shampoo or forget to blow try it. Her hair cut brings out the natural beauty of my slightly wavy hair and it frames my face softly that I started to love and appreciate my face everyday. Gwen??s haircut is more expensive than other stylists. I had to wait 15 minutes for a 30 minutes haircut because she was running late from the previous haircut. However, I think her haircut worth every penny and I would come back to her again.

Love the work of Cathy Koyama. My hair always looks natural, and never has the look of being colored, which I love. I'm in my late 50's with a lot of gray, but you would never guess......my hair looks the best part of me!

Found Cathy by chance two years ago when my regular stylist became scissor happy one day...........she has helped me get my hair back in the best shape ever.

Cathy is a doll..........give her a try, you will not be sorry. She has a great dog too (Bailey) who is her love.

The staff at the salon are always pleasant, cheerful and helpful.

Pros: Up on styles; newest color techniques; clean enviornment;

I have been to JBU about 10 or 11 times so far, and each time, I've had a great experience.
Each time, I have gone to Cathy for my haircuts, and each time, she has yet to amaze me in the quality of her work. I highly recommend her.
The environment as soon as I walked in was was a breath of fresh air from the other salons that I had entered. They offer you a drink: from Coffee's to Tea's to Water. The scenery inside is just splendid; the lighting and atmosphere is just serene. You'll have to go there to believe me, and trust me, its entirely worth it.

The only con to the place is the amount of parking they have at times. But they do offer extra parking, which is only about 25 feet away. haha.

Overall, if I could grade it, I would give it a 9.5/10

JBU is a great salon. Very friendly atmosphere and little to no Eastside attitude from the clientele.

Cathy is always fantastic. She has many loyal clients because she not only knows how to style or color hair--she knows how to CUT hair. She also knows what will and won't work for you if you are thinking about trying something new. If something won't work, she will be able to recommend something that will make you very happy.

The only negative is the parking in the complex can get full, however, just about everything is within walking distance in downtown Bellevue, so drop the Bellevue drive-a-block-mentality and take a short walk over to Salon JBU. You'll be extremely happy you did!

I have fine hair and received the worst layer cut of my life. No one complimented my new haircut, but instead asked me what happened. I'd gone here based on the other reviews and I'm so sorry I did. It's been 3 weeks and I'm on my way to somewhere new to get it fixed.

Please don't tell folks that call that anyone can cut fine hair because they can't.

Ever since I moved to Bellevue about 2.5 years ago, I've been on the hunt for a great stylist, not just a mediocre one that will "do" if I have to settle. After several disappointments, I finally found Carrie. She actually knew how to give me a funky cut that was flattering and edgy (I swear no one else knows how to do that in this town!). My color turned out AMAZING, and my horribly fried trashtastic, frizzed out, broken hair turned out as a shiny fiery red that I love. I would recommend her to anyone!

Shannon Martin definately understands hair! She is so great at her profession but beyond that she listens to your goals and makes it happen. I recommend her to all my friends.

I was referred to Shannon from a friend. I liked how flexible Shannon was because my schedule can be hectic, with me going out of town alot for work.
I told Shannon that I wanted something different with my hair. I wanted a new look, with different color and cut.
When Shannon was done, I felt like a different person. My hair looked so great!! I couldn't believe how the color of my hair made my eyes stand out. It was as if Shannon made the color match my eyes! I was impressed with the cut as well, it was sassy and I've never received so many compliments!
I would (and have) recommend Shannon for anyone who wants a different hair look or even someone just wanting to update or maintain their hairstyle.

FINALLY someone that can cut my hair and give me style! If you have bad hair karma like I did then go to Gwen, she's the BEST. The reviews were very helpful and quite a few people I know have been to her. I wish I had found her before my reunion this summer. :) I don't feel like I have to fight with my hair anymore. Online booking is very easy.

I've heard of Gwen from so many of my friends for years but have been loyal to my hairdresser for the last 15years. I've been so unhappy with my recent cuts so I went in search of a new hairdresser. Gwen was easy to talk to, she had so much technical knowledge which made me instanly relax in her chair. Her approch was very refreshing and my cut still looks great when I do it myself. The reviews on here are very accurate; she has a spunky personality which was fun. I just tried booking my last appointment online and it was very quick and convenient since the salon is closed.

I'm delighted that Lori Lunsmann is now with the salon. I have been a client of Lori's for years. She's so good at what she does. Lori listens to me and as a team, we create a hair style. She is always open for feedback and eager to improve. When you sit in her chair, her focus is !00% on me. Lori is creative and taylors the style to me.

Not an hour in my retail day goes by that I don't hear "who cuts your hair"? "Where does she work"?
I've been a customer of Lori's for many years, and have enjoyed the style and flair she's created for me.
I am fussy being a retired hairdresser myself!
I feel like a "Queen" every time I leave her chair!

Lori is the only stylist who can cut my hair without taking too much off, and she can make it look like I have 3 times the hair that I really have! Her cuts are superb and she always colors my hair just the way I like it. I won't go to anyone else!! She is always on time and professional!

This is my first time on CitySearch and I am so happy there is a place to tell people how happy I am! Ive been having a hard time finding a stylist I liked. It was my first time at Salon JBU and a friend refered me to Megan. She's young, trendy and very professional. I absolutely loved what she did with my hair. She gave me a great color and a cut that is so easy to work with! I will be telling all of my friends about Megan and will be going back!! Thanks Megan!

I had been growing out my short cut for 5 months and was at the end of my rope. My previous stylist is retiring so I took my time finding someone new. I found Gwen online, she gets rave reviews. I thought I would give her a try and am so glad I did. I love that I can schedule an appointment online. In 30 minutes she did a consult, shampoo, cut and style. She really listened to me and I came out with exactly what I had in mind. I could not be more pleased. The salon is nicely furnished and not at all pretentious. Gwen is an artist and I highly recommend her.

Carrie is a wonderful stylist! She has been doing my color and cuts for the past 10 years. She always listens to what I want, makes suggestions when asked and does a terrific job! She is very professional and keeps up to date on the latest products/styles. In addition, she is such a nice person....and a hoot!

I highly recommend her!

I was going to the same stylist for a long time and was ready for a change! I found Megan at Salon JBU and had a cut and color done. I couldnt have enjoyed my time with her more. She was very honest and her opinion was very educated. She knew right away what I meant and how I felt about my hair. I felt so calm and comfortable with her and I knew she would point me in the right direction. This is the best my hair has looked in years! I can actually say I love my hair now thanks for Megan.

Maryam has been my esthetician for almost 3 years so I have followed her around. She is AMAZING to say the least. Super professional, the BEST waxing I have ever had (trust me, I lived all over the world so I have had a few misfortunes when it comes to waxing and haircuts for that matter). She is also super quick and does a great job with threading.
She introduced me to Peter and I got the BEST haircut of my life. He is really amazing and does what suits the face. Most importantly, his haircut makes it easy to style your own hair. I am horrible at that.
So what's better than getting two beautifying services in 1 perfect place!

I've been following Peter Lee around for more than 30 years and JBU is one of the best places he's ever been, It manages to be stylish and chic without any pretensions. I love Sarah, the receptionist, and the other stylists are fun people. Oh, and about Peter, he's a miracle worker! Besides, we've grown up together!
