Sick of the semi-decent haircuts at ridiculous prices at Gene Juarez, I decided to give Vain a try. Mainly, I dug the vibe and thought the Web site made the salon seem personal on a lot of levels, especially the bios on each stylist. I went in with one thing in mind...to get out of my ""hair rut."" Roxie was great about providing me with creative, but maintenance-friendly ideas for my cut (long to short; cut about 12 inches). I also love the color (overall rich brown with various violet/red hues). I walked out of the salon feeling like a new person. I waited a couple of days to write this because I wanted to see how the cut would fair in the maintenance end. Styling my hair in the morning was a breeze...quick blowdry with a dab of styling product and pronto I was good to go. The cut is so versatile, I think I'll have a lot of fun with trying different styles. I've also gotten so many raves about my new do. If you're tired of the same old hair or are just looking for a great stylist in generallook no further and go see Roxie...immediately! :o)

Pros: stylists that care about what you want and give great creative advice

I'm from California, and I refuse to get my hair cut and styled until I can make it up to Seattle for an appointment at Vain with Roxie Hunt. No joke... I don't let anyone else touch my hair. I've never been disappointed by a cut. They're always creative, flattering, and completely original. She'll follow your instructions perfectly, or transform you completely if you just sit back and let her work her magic. Highly recommended... an experience you shouldn't miss. You'll never go back to Supercuts. (Plus, reasonable prices!!! Cuts and coloring can be so expensive!) They also carry very cute clothes, jewelry and accessories from some local artists.

Cons: They're often booked up, so make an appointment in advance!

I was very impressed with Bijou as I have been shopping around for a new stylist after moving to Seattle. She listened to what I wanted and also gave me some good suggestions before giving me a great cut. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a new stylist.

So I went to Vain a few weeks ago and I saw Mae, I gave her a general idea of what I wanted for my haircut and she did an amazing job it was perfect, so I also asked her about what she would suggest for color, I told her I wanted natural highlights like I've been at the beach, she told me what she thought so I went back for the color and it turned out beautiful!! I love it! Thanks Mae!!!

I have now had my hair cut at VAIN multiple times by different stylists and have nothing but great things to say. The downside about being a guy is that haircuts are needed on a monthly basis and with the prices of stylists at any high end salon, the bill tends to be more than I would like....until now. VAIN has an apprentice program wherein stylists have to put in a certain amount of time cutting hair at rock bottom rates ($15) in order to finally join the full time staff. I have had my haircut at other apprentice places (e.g. Gary Manuel, Gene Juarez) but at VAIN, there is no comparison. My stylist was Bijou and needless to say, she was awesome. Cute, professional, and talented. For $15, there is no better deal in the town!

I haven't been to Vain before but went in for a $15 apprentice special haircut with Bijou. She was super nice and my hair looks sooo good! Cool without being too crazy. She really listened to what I asked for. Love it love it love it! Nice to know you don't have to make tons of money to get a great haircut in Seattle.

I went to this salon a few months ago, and I will admit that I got a great haircut from the stylist-however, the service has prevented me from going back (which sucks! It really was a good haircut!). The stylist was way into herself, and either ignored me while she was cutting my hair or talked about her self-I didn't feel welcomed at all. Also, since I liked the haircut so much, I brought in a friend, and the stylist spent the whole time complaining to this friend about what problem hair she had! So rude. She also gave this friend a really crappy haircut. So, to review, way too ""hipper than thou"" attitude for the semi-expensive price tag. Also, when you tip, you slip in your money into a little envelope with the stylist's name and little hearts on it-a little too cutesy for me.

I had hair extensions done by JENNY. All I have to say, is JENNY is my new BFF! If I was a movie star/famous, I would take JENNY everywhere with me. They look incredible, even my boyfriend could not tell they were not real. I have had them 3 months now, and they still look as good as the first day I had them done. I do not think I will ever have natural long hair again, because the hair she uses is such high quality; I think my hair looks the healthest it has ever looked. Also she did a great job with the color and matching the color. I love my new BFF. I almost do not want to tell anyone, as I think I have stumbled upon a great world secret.

I wanted to get my hair done at Vain, but I am on a budget. I took a chance on one of the apprentice stylists offering a $15 haircut...it was the best haircut I have ever gotten.

I recently got great lengths extensions at Vain after reading about them in Vogue and they are AMAZING. Everyone keeps telling me how good and long my hair looks! When I tell people it's extensions they don't believe me until I show them, and even then they have to look really close. I was nervous to do it at first but booked a complimentary consultation with Jenny (she does great color too) and she answered all my questions. Try them out if you want a new look without growing your hair out forever or just want to add extra thickness or color. I'm so glad I went for it- definitely worth it!!

I went to VAIN after reading the other reviews, and I thought I would give it a try. I have been looking for someone who could give me the cut I have been looking for for 3 years or more now. I went to everyone from the cheapo places to Jene Guareze spending anywhere from $15 to $65 not including tips. Vain is the best place because the atmosphere is very calm and welcoming. I saw Ramie and she really listened to what I was looking for and gave me straight-out advice to get the cut to look the way I wanted it to. I highly recommend having a consultation before you get a cut or color to make sure you know who the best person for the job is. I will definately go there again and again!

I went to Vain for the first time and received a very cute, trendy cut and color. My stylist did a great job of listening to what I wanted and adding her own touches to make the look work for me. She also recommended an excellent product for my hair which I am loving. Go see Katie for a great color and cut!

Vain is amazing. I don't even live in Seattle, but I make sure to get my hair cut there every year when I visit my sister. Seriously, Vain has the most approachable staff I've ever encountered, especially for a place that cranks out such high-end haircuts. I live in LA, and you can't find a salon like this there: impeccably cool, fantastically bohemian, and the people are actually NICE. It's incredible! \r\n\r\nBe sure and ask for David--he gave me this haircut a year or so ago that I'm still obsessed with to this day. It was amazing to start off with, and it even grew out beautifully. People kept complimenting me on my haircut for months, and a few people even asked me if I'd lost weight, since my haircut somehow managed to accentuate my cheekbones (I wasn't even aware haircuts could do that!).

I am new to VAIN but I already love it. I went in after being in a hair funk for several months because my usual stylist had up and moved to Alaska. I have been on the lookout for a new salon and am definitely hooked. Everyone was very friendly and happy to advise. I ended up with a super cute cut and a new color! The atmosphere is relaxed and fun.

I went to Vain for the first time last weekend and got the best haircut of my life by Ramie!! I have gotten tons of genuine compliments and it is exactly what I wanted!! She made me feel confident that I was getting exactly what I wanted all throughout the haircut because she continually asked for my imput of how the cut was looking to me. The best part is that it is even better than what I wanted!! If you want a rockin' short textured ""do"" (although I'm sure that she is good at all hair) then see Raime!

I've been going to Vain for three years now and I love it. I've actually been to a few stylists there (Kathleen is really good, Sharon and Rachel too) and always come out looking good and with what I asked for. Nothing too crazy for work but never boring. The front desk staff are helpful- definitely ask them who's good for your hair type, they know who's best. They also have cool art shows and a boutique. I always do some gift shopping there after my appointments- great little jewelry, candles etc. for presents. Way more than your average salon!!

This is by far the coolest salon in seattle! For men and women of all ages this is truly a seattle favorite, with the hippest rotating artshows, style-driver Victoria Gentry behind the scenes making it happen, this place is amazing! When I walk out after getting my hair cut, colored or even after extensions, I feel like a queen-yet so uber cool! thank you VAIN for being an outstanding alternative to mediocre, high priced salons. The value is amazing, the staff is amazing and the atmosphere is ....AMAZING!!!

I have been a client at Vain for more than four years and would not even think of letting another salon touch my hair! I work in a well-known live music venue and continuosly get complimented on my cut and color (I pass on about five Vain business cards every week). The minute you walk in that front door on 1st Avenue, you are surrounded by a fantastic aura and you know that you are in the right place. The people, the products, the professionalism - really, Vain is the ONLY salon in Seattle!

Victoria is a genius of style. The atmosphere here is great too - I love that women and men of all ages and style are regular clients here. The selection of jewelry and little accessories is worth stopping in for, even without a hair appointment, and there is a pretty big variety of hair products here.

I live in Los Angeles and everytime I come to Seattle I stop at Vain for a haircut. This hip, but cozy salon has a great group of people working there. Melissa at the front counter is great at matching me up with the perfect sylist. Last time I went, I tried a new style (since I've had my haircut the same way for 8 yrs). The stylist rocked! I left feeling and looking gorgeous! You will too!

I admit I am lead the conservative life - 4 kids, job in quality management, drive a minivan. That doesn't mean I have to settle for bad hair or bad color jobs. I actually quit coloring my hair 8 years ago (skip of paying $150 for hair that looked like my Mom did in the upstairs bathroom). Anyway I finally realized I needed my youthful honey blond/brown back. So, while traveling, I had David lighhten my locks. He did a wonderful job - a beautiful blend of three colors that has taken 5+ years off my face. Natural. Light. Classy. Now if only I can get him to take the weight of 4 kids off next.

I've gone three times and I'm finally writing a review. I wanted to make sure that every experience was great, and it was! They honestly seem happy to see me return. Rachel was the first to cut my hair and it was awesome. She made it easy to go from long to short hair and my hair color was amazing! I got so many compliments! My second trip Kelly gave me a rocker cut that was work friendly; but with some mousse and putty, it was perfect for going out. My third trip, I got to see Rachel again and she trimmed my rocker cut, but added a little of her own flair. She gave me some killer side bangs and the Aeon Flux side pieces to go with my spikes. Trust me, if you want a great hair cut from a talented stylist at a reasonable price...Vain's the best!

I love this salon! I went in there today looking for a specific thing with highlights and Sharon literally got into my brain!!!\nFinally, a stylist who really listens..looking forward to many more visits, as I've always trusted any stylist here. They are very cool and very capable and warm and friendly, but now I am partial to Sharon.\nGreat place. They force you to be loyal, as I never feel as good as I do when I leave Vain. Keep up the great job guys!

Vain has a makeup artist named Christine. I went in and had my makeup done this weekend and she did a wondeful job! She was so sweet and I truly enjoyed the experience. You should go check it out!

Pros: beautiful m/u lines, friendly

Cons: parking

I hate getting my haircut. I avoid it at all costs. Seriously, i will go months without getting it cut. at least, that was before i found vain.

dont be indimidated by the "hipness" of vain, its for anyone and everyone.

all of the stylists are amazingly nice and they all are really good at understanding exactly what you want (my favorite was kathleen).

getting appointments is really easy.

they are expensive but totally worth it, and you get a free maintenance trim in 3 weeks.

awesomeness

They have an art gallery. They have a little boutiqe. They have rockstar hairstylists who have been cutting hair and coloring it in vivid 80s shocks of color since before the 80s. They can cut you a mohawk and die it hot pink or perm your grandma's hair. The prices are cheap 20-40 dollars for a moderate cut. This is the true styling experience, not the Supercuts 5 dollar trim. These stylist are artists.

I came in a few weeks ago and my hair was a mess. Kelly made me feel right at home and gave me the best hair cut and highlights ever. From the excellent shampoo to the awesome cut and color this was the best experience I have ever had at a salon. So if you want a great cut and color come see Kelly.

I came to Vain for the first time this week. It was a great experience. I had a cut & dye appointment with Roxy. She listened to what I wanted, didn't try to push me into a different style, and gave me a great 'do. \nI wear my hair close on the sides and back and I've had some people give me an uneven cut but Roxy's cut looks awesome. \nIt was the end of a long day at work for me and I wasn't feeling too talkative. Roxy kept the conversation going but wasn't too chatty which I appreciated. She even gave me a cup of jasmine tea from her own private stash while my color was setting!\n

VAIN...there's no place like it...the space itself is amazing!!! I love to walk in and look at all the merch/accessories cuz there are so many great things. The only problem is deciding what to get cuz if you don't pick the right thing the next time you come back to get it...it'll probably be on someone else!!! VAIN is cool and full of great style and of course great stylists and staff who really cares There is someone there who knows how to cut your hair !!! You better take my advice if you wanna FEEL GREAT ABOUT YOUR LOOK. They have never let me down or any of my friends that I sent there...we ALL keep going back and bringing MORE friends...like some kind of cult but NOT...Make an appointment and ENJOY...TOLD YOU SO!!!!!

Kelly is Amazing. I came in with a hair nightmare and came out with hair perfection. I love my hair now. It is exactly what I wanted and it is low maintanence. I am a client of kelly's for life. If you want the perfect hair come to Kelly. She is the most welcoming person and makes you feel so comfortable. Go see kelly at Vain. You won'y be disapointed.

if you have been to any number of shows, chances are you've seen many of her hair cuts in the crowd and on stage. A talented Stylist isn't really that hard to find in seattle, but an excellent original stylist thats also great to hang out with during the process can be, thank god for carly. Spread the word, ""carly cuts my hair""!!!

RAMIE is awesome. If you like a lot of layers and texture in your hair (I have long straight hair and i wanted choppy/spikey layers) then you should try out Ramie. She is so friendly and makes you feel really comfortable about the hair style before she even cuts. She goes through each step with you and makes sure you are okay with it. The salon is very artsy and roomy~ ABSOLUTELY no pressure to buy products either!

I've been going to Kelly for a couple of months now and I have never had better haircuts. She even managed to get my really super dark hair a really light shade of blonde, something nobody has ever done before! She's super creative and talented and fun, I would recommend her to anyone who wants amazing hair.

All I can say, is I've always had straight long hair. No style, no bangs, no color. Erika changed all that for me. I've got the ""hot bangs, and sexy layers""...per Erika...and I will have to agree whole heartedly! I love my hair, all thanks to Erika and her professional sense of style. She is one of the spunkiest girls I know, and I will never trust anyone else with my hair. If you want someone you can trust, go to Erika, you will leave feeling sexy and beautiful! Thanks Erika for all your help! See you next month!

Cons: N/A

I went in feeling pretty shaggy and just wanting to shave my head... I told Erika I was her plaything and to have her way with my head (I was just going to shave it if I wasn't happy) and I came out feeling SUPER-sessy!! Ask for Erika if you don't know what you want to do...

I went into Vain after a breakup and was feeling pretty blue. Erika immediately cheered me up and made me feel like the guy who dumped me was an idiot. I've worked a long time to grow out my hair, but it was heavy and outdated. I've also always wanted to have bangs and it just never worked on me. Erika made it work! She cut them in a way that they work with my annoying cowlick. I haven't had such a stylish cut in years and the color brightened my face. Plus, I was able to keep my length. I saw the ex-boyfriend last night and he told me I looked years younger and that the cut made my eyes look beautiful. Hmmm......Erika sure worked some magic! Also, I had to rush off for another appointment and Erika did all she could to get me there on time.

Erika is such an awesome, effiecient worker and has never given me a haricut that I have not liked. She is the only hairdresser that I completely trust to give me a haircut that I will totally dig. She makes me look like a moveistar and gives me a real confidence boost when I step off that hotseat of hers. She is also such a friendly, amiable person and I would recommend her to any of my friends.

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
