.

I had a very mixed experience with Vain. The true test of a salon is not only how well they handle their primary task of color, cut and style, but how well they handle the problems which may arise. Betsy did my initial cut and color, and I was very specific about what I wanted as I have done my own hair with professional products for years. I found her to be condescending and quick to argue with me about color, processing, etc. That said, she complied with my color choice and she gave me one of the best cuts and color I have ever had.\r\n\r\nThe second time I went in, Betsy seemed rushed and distracted. She replicated the cut pretty well, but the color was way too dark. I told her at first I thought it was too dark, and she seemed defensive and impatient. She then recommended that I go home and repeatedly WASH MY HAIR WITH DISHWASHING LIQUID to lighten it up (subsequent styists were floored by this advice). I eventually tried her advice, and my hair turned reddish. I called to ask about fixing it, and never got any call back. I didn't go back.

Pros: Funky, good with edgy cuts and color

Cons: General staff was standoffish, poor customer service from stylist

Vain does THE BEST haircuts and colors Seattle has to offer. CARLY NICKLAUS does my hair and she delivers EXACTLY what I want everytime. She is a rockstar and makes me into one! With bright red and pink hair, I'm constantly being asked, ""Where do you get your hair done?"" and the answer is always enthusiastically, ""CARLY AT VAIN!!!!!"" xoxo ANNA BANANA, Boutique Owner, Pretty Parlor

Pros: The coolest place in town - I {HEART} VAIN!

Moving to a new city can be stressful enough, not to mention having to find a new hairstylest. I asked around and 3 different people recommended Vain. So, I made an appointment with Krista. The salon is so fun and upbeat. If you are like me, you dread sitting in a chair for 3 hours. The conversation was great, everyone interacted with eachother, and above all the music was fantastic! For the first time I was able to walk out of a salon with great color and a perfect cut. Krista actually listened to what I wanted and gave me just what I had pictured in my head. The price was unbelievably resonable as well.... I just went to a family reunion and everyone raved about my hair all weekend. Thanks Krista :)

Pros: atmosphere, style, price

Alexis at Vain will forever be my stylist as long as she'll have me. I'm a college student who generally has a habit of getting my hair cut anywhere, with no loyalty or allegiance to any one stylist. I came to Vain on the recommendation of a good friend of mine. She told me that it was Alexis who gave her such a great bleach job and cut, and that she was building her client list, since she was new to the area. I made an appointment and it was love! I love her, I love the vibe at Vain, and I certainly love my hair. I have gone back 3 times now, and I will continue to. Everyone there is so highly skilled, I'm always checking out everyone's hair around me in the surrounding chairs, and blown away by the stylist's creations. To make a long story short, go to Vain- and if you want a sweet bleach job with bright pink panels throughout and a gorgeous cut; see Alexis.

Vain is a salon, art space and boutique all in one, but what really sets Vain apart are the top-notch stylists. I love Krista! During my first cut, Krista listened to my hair woes, immediately identified the issue, and painstakingly reshaped my hair. The result? For the first time in my life, I liked my hair! The best part is, the haircut still looked great weeks later with no maintenence. She recommended Deva Curl products for my curly hair, which are truly amazing and take two seconds to use (important for a Seattle lady on the go). When it came time to cut my long hair short, I trusted no one but Krista. Again, phenomenal results--she really listens to what her clients want and delivers it with style and charm. And if you're not sure what you want, you can trust her practiced eye and perceptive mind to make you look even more ravishing than you already are.

Pros: ambience, professional staff, cool items, easy to get to from Capitol Hill via the Metro Bus

I have been going to Jenny Slay to get hair extensions for quite some time. I get Great Lengths Extensions which are real hair type of extensions. I absolutely love them and will probably always get them, even if my hair was as long as I wanted it to be. Jenny is so meticulous about putting them in as well as maintaining them with color etc.. I would not go to anyone else to get my extensions done. She is careful not to damage my own hair and I never lose any of the extensions, which I believe is sometimes a problem for people. Since I have had my extensions I have been told by so many people how good I look and no one can tell that I have extensions unless I let them in on it. Jenny also colors and cuts my hair and does an absolutely fabulous job. I am very picky about my hair and I have always been cautious and selective and I feel I can tell Jenny what I want and she always gets it!!

I have been visiting Vain since moving to Seattle in 1999. They've grown up from 3 quiet chairs to a new sassy location with a gallery and a constant whir of activity. I have moved through a few sylists as some have moved on, but Vain keeps bringing me back. I love the quality of real, genuine people who work here, who aren't afraid to tell you what they think and who are so talented that you can trust them to do the right thing for the top of your head. You will usually find that your stylist is also up on the latest bands or clubs or whatever hip is going on in Seattle - I get the best recommendations here for restaurants, bars, all kinds of stuff. I always laugh and have a blast when I'm here. Hey, it's cheap therapy along with a fabulous cut or color! The current downside to their location - parking has gotten way pricey in Belltown; take a bus or walk (especially during evening rush hour).

I'll be honest. I usually go to Supercuts...don't get me wrong they've done a good job - but nothing like the perfect haircut I got from Carly a few days before my wedding. She was friendly, professional and put me at ease within minutes of arriving. Thanks to Carly and her skill as a hairdresser I've had to break up with Supercuts. Sorry Supercuts - we can still be friends, right?

I don't usually go to the salon, so I was a little nervous when I walked into vain for the first time. Carly was so sweet and made me feel right at home. I could tell right away that she loves her job by the way she was treating me. She really listened to what i wanted, and took great care to make me look beautiful. I absolutely loved the cut and highlights she gave me...and I got a ton of compliments. I would recomment Carly to anyone..

I moved up here recently from the San Diego area. I've been with the same hair stylist for about 10 yrs and I was really nervous about finding someone new to do my long, wavy, highlighted hair. I found Vain in Best of City Search and I'm so thankful that the receptionist directed me to Carinn.\r\n\r\nCarinn really listened to what I wanted, what I liked about my hair, what I didn't like. My last stylist had been putting in 2 shades of blonde highlights and some low-lights underneath. I was afraid no one would be able to re-create what he had been doing to my hair.\r\n\r\nMuch to my surprise Carinn actually IMPROVED upon what my last stylist had been doing to my hair. She put in all kinds of lucious layers, added some new colors, changed some of the other colors. It looks FANTASTIC!!! Carinn is a complete perfectionist and takes her time to make my hair look great and she shows me different ways to style it on my own. She also introduced me to the fabulous Deva Curl products that they sell. I can't believe my hair looks so great and I don't even have to mess with it. Thank you Carinn!!!

I was recently in Seattle on vacation. A friend booked a private make-up consulation for me, as a nice surprise gift. Before I went into Vain my make-up consisted of Carmex lip balm. What I wanted was a very easy, soft look - nothing comlpicated, nothing overly noticeable. I left with a small bag of new supplies and a new look. Christine was wonderful - she has an great approach and gave me what I asked for and showed my exactly how to do my own make-up. Did I work? I wore my new look at work on Monday and got three unsolicited compliments. So, at age 39 (about 26 yeats too late), I finally know how to wear make-up and look and feel better. Thanks to Christine I have finally learned what to do and it takes me all of 5 minutes in the morning.

I was skeptical when choosing a salon after moving to Seattle. I have curly hair, so I wanted to visit a salon that specializes in that. Vain is awesome! Their staff knows what they're doing, they are cool and friendly. It is a bit on the pricey side (generally $50 or so for a wash, cut and blowdry) but trust me it is worth it to get the look that you want! Also, they offer a 3 week touch up trim for free, and many of the stylists have flexible hours, so it is easy to make an appointment even on the weekends! Their Diva Curl products are the best ever for curly hair..I will never use cheap store-bought products on my hair again! Even though I live in the Southend, I am more than happy to make the drive downtown to Vain..my hair looks great everytime! If you have curly hair, you should ask for Jenn C. she is phenominal!

Cons: parking, haircuts are pricey but worth it!

Vain is a fun place. It is not intimidating as some big salons can be and you will find all sorts of patrons. Krista does a fabulous job. I can't believe how many people compliment my cut after each visit...family friends, strangers, strange friends. My hair feels sassy, but still really suited for me, because who wants to leave a salon wondering if they can pull their own hair off? (Literally or figuratively!) Anyway, Krista is super fun and approachable. She has great style and listens really well if I have an idea of what I want or if I don't have any specific ideas, she always finds inspiration and makes my hair smell like special magic candy from the future.

Vain is a great salon. Sharon is one of best stylists for hair. Every time after I leave the salon I always get a ton of compliments on my hair (I get full highlights and low lights). It is a great salon because you get high quality style (for a lower cost) and without all of the fuss of the pretentious salons throughout the area. The only bad thing about vain is that they are so busy the last couple of times I have been there they have run out of hot water! It is no fun getting your hair shampoo'ed with cold water!

Not only does Vain have a cool atmosphere, great products and a good location - it also has Janae! I went to her for the first time a month ago. She did an awesome job of listening to everything I wanted and she translated it into the perfect haircut for me. I love love love the work the way my hair looks and I love that she cut it in a way that's easy for me to care for & style based on my daily routine. She was also very affordable and very nice. I highly recommend Janae and Vain!

I was recommended by two friends to see Jen about a year and a half ago and I can't imagine going anywhere else! I have never had a color last as long and look as good and she always has great suggestions for a fun cut. She also is very knowledgeable in what looks good based on hair texture, face shape, etc. Jen has an amazing personality and is always a treat to visit with during the appt. I plan to stay with Jen as long as I can!!

Vain is a great place. It seems like no matter who you go with you will get something cool. Ramie is amazing. If you want a hip, great haircut or color, forget Rudy's or Scream. Go to Vain. Ramie is one of the most expensive but she's the best, and she books up fast, so make an appointment in advance.

Oh, so many years and so many average haircuts and lots of gray (bad foils and dye jobs).... Ugh, I gave up! Alas the Bash! Finally saved! By far one of the industry's best in Seattle! My hair color looks natural and I no longer look like a chia pet.... I actually look stylish and may I dare say hip? Thanks Bash for coloring out my gray skunk stripe (making my color look natural) and giving me a fabulous haircut that makes me look and feel 15 years younger! Cheers!

I love Vain and I love Bash. I have this unruly, irritating curly hair. The kind that is curly and frizzy one day, crunchy weird curls the next and flat on top curly on the bottom the day after so you can imagine how VERY happy I was to find someone who gave me a cut that looks fabulous ALL the time. Even after 4 or 5 months of growth. I literally fly from NYC --> Seattle to see Bash. He's not a big talker but that is because he becomes MESMORIZED by your hair. He has also done the hair of about 5 other friends now (who all love their Bash cuts) and they all have totally different hair types - proof positive that Bash can cut it all. And - if you didn't think it could get better - he actually LISTENED to me when I said I wanted to keep the length. What, what WHAAAT??? Have you been Bashed yet?

I visited Vain Salon in Belltown about a month back. I was there vacationing from Massachusettes. It turned out, my stylist was from Boston!! We had a nice chat while he gave me the best cut Ive had in a long time. If you are ever in Seattle, go see BASH @ Vain.....HE ROCKS!!!\r\n

I had an amazing experience at Vain. I saw Jenn C for a cut and color. I had called the front desk and was referred to her after telling the receptionist about my hair (long and fine). I went in not knowing exactly what I wanted, but Jenn C listened to what I did know I wanted and she made suggestions and educated me and then she gave me a fabulous hairstyle! I love my hair! I have washed it and styled it myself and I still love it! I'm so happy with how I look.

I love Vain. Everyone that works there is friendly and fun. I tend to be a little nervous when people cut and color my hair and Katie has been great. She gives me a friendly, modern haircut and color that works for my life AND the next cut and color she does can be something completely outrageous! She is SO versitile. Jake (who is a great new addition to the salon) just cut my boyfriend's hair and did a fantastic job. The thing I like most about Vain is that it is a place for everyone. You can get a conservative cut and color or something that stretches the boundaries. For most of my adult life I have spent a lot of money on my hair and thought that cost reflected what I would get. While the prices at Vain are VERY reasonable - the service and style rivals any expensive cut that I have received. \r\n\r\nI highly recommend trying them out!

This is the best place to get your hair done in Seattle, period. Everyone who works here is ten times more stylish than us normal people will ever hope to be. You find yourself inspired, and willing to try something new. BASH is the gentleman who does an amazing job with any style. He really listens to what you want done. After ove two years of styling my locks, they look great. STRANGERS ACTUALLY STOP ME TO ASK WHERE I HAD MY HAIR DONE!!!! The best part is the reasonable prices! \r\n\r\nI LOVE BASH

I am so nervous about getting my hair cut (and generally living paycheck to paycheck) that it took me almost two years to decide where to go to get my hair done, and I was ecstatic when I walked out of Vain without any regrets!

I am so nervous about getting my hair cut (and generally living paycheck to paycheck) that it took me almost two years to decide where to go to get my hair done, and I was ecstatic when I walked out of Vain without any regrets!

Pros: Friendly People, Talented Stylists, Comfortable Atmosphere

Cons: Tough Parking

I've been going to Rachel for about 6 years and have never been disappointed! Since I moved to New York I've been lost. That's why I make a special point of making an appointment with Rachel every time I'm in Seattle. Seriously. Rachel works wonders!

I started going to Rachel over a year ago and absolutely love her and her magic fingers. She gives a great haircut as well as colour. You'll walk out with a unique and flattering haircut every time. I highly recommend her especially for those of you with short hair. HP

It's hip, it's art, they're friendly, professional, personal, and know what they are doing. Don't let this trendy little place fool you. It meets everyones hair styling needs. Ramie and Rachel are the super hero duo who transformed my sinister hair into a work of art. Their staff is young, hip, artistic, but don't come with the attitude, just a desire to make you look fabulous. Victoria, the owner, does a great job of creating a high energy place that is down to earth and professional. My favorite part of my visit......the magazines were current!

I started going to Vain about 8 months ago and Bijou cuts my hair. She is excellent. I have recommended her to several friends and they feel the same way. She listens to what you want, gives advice if she thinks there might be better options (which I really appreciate) and gives an excellent haircut. I highly recommend her! Kristen

I just had a great time the other day with hair colorist Alexis. I had a total hair disaster with a box of store-bought dye and felt horrible about the way it turned out, but Alexis was able to restore it and make it look totally natural. Not only that, we also had a great conversation throughout my visit. A surprisingly fun experience, especially after thinking my hair was beyond repair. Thanks again, Alexis!!

I was referred to Alexis at Vain by a friend with very cute curly hair...so I took a chance and went. I am very very pleased. Alexis understood my past curly hair ordeals and immediately comforted me. She explained her experiences with curly hair (especially since she has very curly hair herself) and gave me some uselful tips for my own. She explained everything that she was doing and always checked in with me for my comfort level. She is a wonderful person and hairdresser. Highly recommeded.

Since I've been getting my hair done by Kelly, it's never looked better! I started coming to her for a standard foil and I keep coming back. My hair has gone above and beyond its natural style with color, and extentions. My brown, shoulder-length hair has been transformed to elbow-length with pink and blonde pieces peeking out the bottom. She has a creative edge; I know she'll always have an awesome idea and I'll never get bored! I highly recommend her, check her out!

1/1/2008:\r\nVain fits with the hipster crowd. I like their funky atmosphere but that's what they are. They tout on their own website that they cater to everyone but after a year of coming home with the 80's rock-star overly-straightened quasi-mullet I think I might have to break it off with Vain. I'm not in college anymore, I'm trying to fit in in the overly conservative financial district crowd. I hate conforming but when your paycheck is at stake and you're fresh out of college you have to just deal with it. I always request a little bit of layering (I have thick straight hair) but every time it gets layered from below my shoulders to above my ears and then my already straight hair is ironed out with a straightener to give me the ""piecy edgy look."" Now I have to iron my hair every day to make it not boing up and look like a mullet. I should have known better the last 3 times that this happened. Alas, I said I was growing my hair out and only wanted it cleaned up so I could grow it long and yet again I look like I belong in the game ""Guitar Hero."" I know I can go back for a touch up trim for free, even if it's to change the style, but frankly, there's hardly any hair left on my head. It's been thinned out so much that my super thick shoulder length hair is stringy and sad looking. I'm probably not going to be able to cut my hair for at least 4-6 months now.\r\n\r\nMy other problem with Vain is there ever soaring prices. It's nearly impossible to get in for the rumored ""$15 special"" and my last friend that got the special had his hair cut by the girl who shampoos and sweeps the floor. Maybe if you're a guy with a clipper cut, and manage to get the $15 special and get a free trim out of it in 4 weeks it's worth it. But I'm tired of having my hair butchered to look like an 80's revival emo band.\r\n\r\nI think next time I'll go to the beauty school at Northgate, they usually don't mess up already straight hair that just needs the ends cleaned up to grow out.

Been going here for a couple of years now and I have always been satisfied with my hair cuts. Roxie did an awesome job with my hair. I wanted to have my usual cut but edge it up a bit more then normal and she did a great job. It looked really stylish and the cut she gave, provided me different ways of how I can play with it. I really liked the fact that she did not sacrifice the length of my hair to give me the cut I desired and she did what I wanted but jazzed it up so the style looked flattering. You have to pay for parking or look for free, street parking. They also have a boutique area where you can purchase some cute accessories. Another plus about Vain is they do not push products which I hate more then anything and the place is really reasonable in terms of price. They also do a good color job as well. You can always call and ask the receptionist which hair stylist would be best for you in terms of your hair length and type and they've been really helpful.

If you want cool atmosphere with hairstylists who actually care about what they do (and what you look like!), Vain's the place to go. I always feel like the haircuts and color I get are *mine* and not some look that every other girl walking down the street has. I recently got some color extension pieces by Kelly that turned out really well, and Ramie's cuts rule. I love VAIN! Check it out you will too.

i have been into the salon a few times and each time i have had my hair cut by Janae. before the first time i came in i was recommended by one of her other clients. they had said she was a very talented young stylist and i should check her out. so i did.\r\ni showed up for my appointment and was greated by her with friendly smile. i sat in her chair and we went over what i wanted to do with my hair. she agreed the style i chose would be one that fit me very well and that would look great. she knew exactly what to do.\r\nshe took me over to get shampoo'd which was AMAZING. before this (i forgot to mention) i had never gotten my hair cut at a salon. didnt even know i was going to get shampoo. this was a plus and i wanted to fall asleep!!\r\nwhile she cut my hair we talked about her cats and her being a styleist. also things about me and what i'm about. shes a wonderful conversationalist and listener! she was easy to talk to and made my first experience a great one. since then i have only gotten my hair cut by her and only at Vain.\r\nwhat was the most surprising to me is the haircut ended up being only $15. i was told that salon cuts dont come cheap, but you get your moneys worth. i was ready to pay $30-$40 for a cut. i was so amazed at the price i left that much in my tip. to me shes defiantley worth that total!!\r\ni think Vain is a great salon and Janae is a great stylist. i wouldnt want to go to any other salon and i have recommened Vain/Janae to almost everyone i know (they also compliment my hair all the time!)\r\nThank you Very much for all you do!

I have been playing around with color for a few years and recently started going to David about a year ago when a friend recommended him. I like to change up my look pretty frequently which lead to disaster with my previous colorist but with David that has not been the case. He knows his stuff and has made some great suggestions about the type of color and shades to use which have allowed me to have a lot of fun, great looks. Vain is a fun place too. The front staff was really helpful and I loved the reminder call with my busy schedule.

After having one hairdresser for seven years, I did a lot of research before settling on Vain. The receptionist was very, very helpful in helping me find the right fit for my hair type.\r\n\r\nI received a reminder call for my appointment, but she said it was at 2pm, three times she said that. I thought it was at noon, but with the move and the new job, I thought I was spacing. \r\n\r\nI showed up at 2:00 the following day and was told my appointment was at noon. They figured I was a no-show and sent the hair dresser home. I told her about the reminder calls stating 2pm as my appointment time. She offered to reschedule for another day.\r\n\r\nI'd driven to hellish Belltown, pouring rain and wind, taken half a day off work and pre-paid $10 in parking. I wasn't leaving that place without a haircut! They managed to find someone to do my hair and I waited about 20 minutes for her.\r\n\r\nWhen I walked into the salon there was a bucket with towels in the center as there was a leak in the ceiling. I know things happen, but it did look pretty bad, they could've been a bit less messy with the towels or something. When I was brought to my hairdresser's chair, the last person's hair was all over. Gross. It stayed there until after my highlights were finished. \r\n\r\nThe hairdresser was very nice but gave me too many options. I was used to the hairdresser being the professional, asking me what I wanted and then just making it happen. Setting a color chart in my lap was too much for a layperson to process. The light in the place was terrible, I couldn't decipher one color from the next.\r\n\r\nMy hair looks fine. The color is barely noticeable which in a way is good and in a way is bad. I didn't want stripes, but I didn't spend $100 for the same hair I walked in with. The cut seems OK, but I haven't had much of a chance to play with it yet. \r\n\r\nIn the end, they took $20 off my bill and gave me a $10 coupon for my next visit. I'm not sure I'll return, it's a lot of money for OK.

I went to Vain for the second time recently. My hairstylist cancelled at the last minute (10 min. before my appt!). The staff made a great effort to fit me in, but during the process I was bounced around among three stylists, including a student, for color and a cut. The cut and color were OK. I appreciate the effort to accomodate me, but was disappointed that I didn't get a top-quality cut and color.

I can't stop looking at my hair. Why? Because it's amazing! I found Vain on citysearch and decided to give it a try. I have been having a hard time finding a stylist who knows how to work with naturally curly hair. After explaining my hair type and problems the receptionist recommended that I see Carinn. They couldn't have been more right! First of all I knew I was in good hands when I saw her. She has really beautiful CURLY hair. After talking with me about my current routine of how I style my hair from shampoo, products to drying she gave me a lot of information and tips on how to make the most of my curly hair. She also asked about my personal style and what I wanted my hair to say about me. That was cool. I felt she was really listening too. One of the best things about seeing Carinn besides the awesome cut is she explained and showed me how to style my hair once I got home and was on my own. So far it's great and easier than what I was doing before. I still can't believe that this is my hair. I never knew my curly hair could look so good! I've already made an appointment to see Carinn again and next time we are going to do some color!!!

Just got my wedding pictures back & I have to share the love- Vain does AMAZING wedding hair AND makeup! (who knew?) One of my bridesmaids suggested it, we went in for a consultation & decided to go for it, and it worked out perfectly- one stop for the 5 of us, didn't cost an arm and a leg, and everyone looked really beautiful. I did NOT want to look cheesy or boring on my wedding day and they really delivered. I highly recommend it for all you brides-to-be out there!

My sister and I saw Carinn a few months ago and she gave each of us fabulous haircuts. My sister and I have very different styles - I am more conservative and my sister is more current - and she listened carefully to both of us and gave us each great haircuts based on what we said and our personal style. She was also friendly and fun to talk to. The cuts/experience were so good we told a bunch of our friends to come see her - some because they loved our hair so much. After months of compliments we went back again yesterday and again got fabulous and unique haircuts, again that matched our very different style needs. Carinn is wonderful! Go see her!

I got my hair cut by Janae yesterday. I was a little nervous because she's an apprentice and does not have as much experience as the others, but it was only $15 and she was the only one available. Janae was very knowledgaeble, knew exactly what she was doing, and informed me of what she was doing each step. Its also reassuring when your hairstylist has really cute hair themselves!! DEFINITELY worth my $15.

Roxie gave me the best haircut of my life! I've never gotten so many compliments on a cut. It's funky and versatile and even looks good fresh out of my bike helmet after a 25 mile ride! I can't recommend her highly enough.

Pros: Free trims 3-4 weeks after your cut

Cons: Parking can be a pain if you happen to drive

\r\nI've been to a few different salons based on suggestions from CitySearch, including Gene Juarez and Mode. The haircuts weren't bad, but for the price and effort, definitely not worth the money. I had my hair done about three weeks ago at Vain by Carly. I had horrible roots and wanted some blonde in my hair, but not your typical run-of-the-mill highlights. She used a demi-permanent color on my hair, which fixed the roots and blended AMAZINGLY with the color I already had. Then, she added highlights underneath that looked stunning, especially for how dark my hair had been to begin with. She even gave me tips on what to do if I ever had to color my own hair again. Three weeks later the color still looks as good as it did day one. Definitely worth the money, the price was very reasonable as well.

I love Vain! They're really nice, interested in their clients and the atmosphere is great. It's not stuffy at all, and the prices are good.

My stylist just moved to Vain and since she's fabulous I followed her. Needless to say I love my gal Shannon since I followed her, her cuts and color are awesome! The salon itself is fun and funky, cool make-up and hair stuff. Trendy
