Rude

Well to be honest I barely got in the door. I was walking in and was cut off by a young girl who almost ran me over and then gave me a dirty look as she rushed in for being in her way. No pardons or apologies for her rude behavior. When I got to the desk I was informed she was my stylist. I understand the name of the shop is Vain but if that is the attitude of their staff? Well I did not stay and will not be returning. Regardless of your skill or talent manners go a long way. Maybe they forgot cosmetology is still a customer SERVICE based industry.

Janae at Vain is the only stylist I will have cut my hair!

I have been going to Vain downtown for a little over a year now. I have had my hair cut by Sam and TT. They are both wonderful stylists however my favorite stylist has to be Janae. She layered my hair so well, just flows whenever I turn my head. She also helped me make the decision to try Bettie bangs, which I have been wanting to do for YEARS but have been hesitant to choping my hair due to my face shape. She took the time to discuss with me how she would cut them to suit my face, as well as styling tips as this can be a high maintenance style to pull off. In the end, I am so happy with my cut that Janae is the only stylist I go to now. She is wonderful!

I love this salon!

I never received a hair cut that I didn't like when I chose to go to Vain's. \nThe shop itself is hip, clean and very well maintained. The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable about hair care. I always receive excellent service from the artists. They really take their time getting to know you, your hair type and what sort of cut and style you're looking for. However, they aren't afraid to tell you the truth about the sort of effort and time your new cut will take. They will be brutally honest with you about the kind of work your new cut will take once you leave the salon. I always take their suggestions seriously because they REALLY know hair. \nEmmett does some of the best short hair/pixie/boycut styles around! Rachel (from the Ballard shop) is their curly hair specialist and is a good choice if you've got thick curly and unruly hair!\nMy only complaint is that their parking SUCKS. I drive all the way from Tacoma to see these guys (yes, they ARE worth it!). I have pay to park next door to the salon, so if you're in the downtown area I recommend walking or taking the bus. It is much easier and less expensive!

As Vain As You Want To Be

After many recommendations I booked my appointment with Jordan. I walked in and immediately wanted to browse the many fun accessories and peruse the art. I like that each stylist here is able to be true to their own style isn't stuck wearing all black.\n\nAs far as the haircut, I could tell Jordan was a perfectionist. I didn't feel like he was rushing to finish and he was very genuine in conversation. I walked out feeling like a million.
