Bellevue >Obadiah Salon
Do NOT see Stephen at Obadiah. I recently had my hair cut & colored by Stephen at Obadiah in Bellevue. I had read several reviews online saying he is a genius with cuts and color. I sincerely disagree. First, it took Stephen over 2 hours to do an all over color and a trim. I have naturally dark blonde hair and color my hair light brown. I asked to go just a shade darker than my natural and now I have VERY dark brown hair, darker at the ends and my roots almost look like they lifted. The cut wasn't much better, I can't quite figure out what he did, but I can't figure out a style that works with it. To top it all off, when he dried my hair (which is naturally wavy, frizzy) he used a hair dryer and kind of round brushed it in the front. I think he was going to let me leave this way, so I asked if he was going to do all of my hair. Of course, now it was completely dry, so it was flat and frizzy. Not to mention he parted it down the middle. It was a Friday night and he let me walk out of the salon with frizzy unstyled hippie hair. I had to cancel plans for dinner and go straight home because my hair looked worse when I left the salon than when I got there. I would NOT recommend going to Stephen for anything. If I am going to spend $200 for a cut & color, I expect to be able to walk out the salon with good hair!
A wonderful salon. I recently had my hair cut and colored in honor of my birthday. I saw Holly Hanson, we talked about doing something different for my color. I typically stick close to my natural color, this time we went dramatic. I love that my hair still looks natural but is a wonderful dark red. I will be back to see her again, she makes your experience comfortable and personable.
Nancy Navarrete is a GREAT hair stylist. I have been going to Nancy Navarrete for a little over a year now and will go to no one else. I went in and she welcomed me with a great smile and took me to clean my hair. She asked what i wanted and gave me the exact haircut I wanted but better. To top it off her prices are very reasonable. I was exceptionaly happy with my haircut and will be going back soon for a very long time.
Amazing and well priced!. I just moved to the seattle area about a year ago and have been on the search for a good hairsylist ever sense. You would think in a large modern city it would be easy but I have had to worst luck, but then i was referred to Holly at Obadiah salon.... Thankgoodness cause I have never had such amazing highlights and cut Ever.. not even back home in LA. She got me really blonde with out destroying my hair, like most do, and she even took time to talk to me about the future of my hair.. love this girl. cant wait to see her again
not that great. I had booked this bridal hair trial a week in advance and was told it would take an hour but when I got there the hair stylist thought I was there for a hair cut! she put me thru a hair wash then she spent nearly 45 mins curling my hair w/o a curler (just a hair dryer, brush and clips!). quite a few times she asked me to sit further down into the chair or slouch because she is too short to reach the top of my head (Im 5'4" - that's already short!). so after all that and putting my hair into a "cooker" she comes back in 2 mins to inform me that she needed to rush thru the curls because she was already 15 mins behind! my appt started @ 230pm and it was now 345pm and im in the cooker for another 3 mins. then she asks me to sit further down again! what if i had issue w/my back?? then she really did rush my hair! she gave my hair lots of body which i didn't mind! before we even started all this i specifically said i didn't want the braid to be incorporated into my hair but laying on top of hair and what does she do?? she braids it half way back into the hair!! im told the products are supposed to stay in my hair and keep the curls til the next day (my hair wasn't exactly curly when i left). It was already flat when i got home (oh i left at 4pm!!)
Excellent service from Stephen Kyle at Obadiah Salon. :).
My sister has been seeing Stephen the last year. When I moved to Bellevue from San Diego I knew I could trust my sister because she is a hard one to please and so if she recommends someone she got excellent service. I was pleasantly surprised when she told me about Stephen at Obadiah. She was recommended from a friend she worked with at Eddie Bauer.
He listened to what I wanted. I really wanted to go a little darker. I have dark eyes and blonde hair and I had seriously damaged my hair from all the bleach over the years I have put in it. So he changed my blonde hair to a beautiful chocolate color. I couldn't believe how much color it put back in my face and changed my damaged hair to soft and shiny.
I am a very happy client and I am looking forward to my next visit to Stephen. I am grateful my sister told me about him. I love my new hair color!
Thank you City Search for helping me find Stephen!. Thanks to reading reviews on City Search I found my new stylist Stephen! I moved to Seattle from Santa Monica recently and didn't know if I would find a great stylist that is great with color and cutting. I read that he was great with color and it was right on. I basically asked Stephen what he thought would look best and Stephen changed my dirty blonde color to the most gorgeous chocolate color with honey highlights. I like short haircuts but never had the guts to cut my hair from shoulder length to around the chin. I took and chance and had him cut my hair like Victoria Beckhams haircut. I love it and am having a blast with my new haircut. It is really easy to style and go.
The Place that treats you like Royalty. When you have no idea what you want to do with your hair, color, style etc - GABE is the man at Obadiah who resolves all the mysteries. I have been seeing Gabe now for over 9 years and he has literally transformed my hair style. His attention to detail, personality, and ability to give you what you need is beyond reproach. If there is anyone that wants to make a change to their hairstyle regardless of where you live in the city you must see Gabe.
TALENT. I have had the same cut and color for years, I always ask for a change but nobody will go there. I always leave looking the same or if I get a change I can never manage to create the same look...until I met Gabe Walton! He is not just a hair stylist he is a hair God!!! He is fluent in color, design ,and styling. He spent time talking to me about what I like, my comfort level and what I can and can not do in the styling department. From there he gave me a cut and color that flattered me and educated me on what he was doing as he styled so I could look just as great every day after. He is a true talent and so very charming too!
Best hairstylist ever. Gabe cut my hair last week and I have to say it was the best haircut I have ever had. Not ony was he so professional but charming too. I left feeling gorgeous and have had so many compliments on my hair since then. Go see him and you won't regret it!
