I first started seeing Rebecca more than five years ago when she was at Gary Manuel in Belltown. I have very long, very thick, and tricky-with-layers hair and was seldom pleased with the haircuts I received (regardless of whether the salon was upscale or not). From the day I had my first haircut with Rebecca (at the recommendation of a coworker), I finally realized the complete and total value of a truly amazing hair stylist. I recognize that there is some subjectivity when it comes to hairstyles and stylists, but she really is phenomenal. I saw her religiously for three years and then she was gone! She moved out of the country and I was devastated. I also know that salons adhere to a strict no-compete policy so that stylists can't take their clientele with them. For two years I went from one unsatisfied haircut to another... And then one day I looked up Oohla's and saw that Rebecca had moved back to the states!! It seemed like a crazy stroke of luck. I've since had three haircuts with her and they are even more terrific than before. She is a kind, caring, and sweet person - but even beyond that, extremely talented. In regards to the salon itself, Oohla's has a cute, boutique-y atmosphere. It doesn't feel pretentious but still offers small, well-appreciated amenities. The haircuts are reasonable starting at $50. I actually went in for a haircut this afternoon with Rebecca and it's probably my favorite one out of all of the (outstanding) ones I've received from her. My boyfriend has been complimenting me all night. My hair looks amazing and I feel amazing. If you're looking for a terrific stylist -- one that listens to you and pays attention to your hair's unique quality and texture - definitely go see Rebecca!
