You’re so VAIN.

January 26, 2009


You prob’ly think this post is about you.

Well, it could be, if you live in Seattle and need a haircut. Rumor has it that VAIN salon in Belltown is offering free haircuts, courtesy of stylist TT, on Friday evenings for the next few weeks. I said free. As in, FREE.

VAIN is a Seattle-only, woman-owned Small biz, and patronizing such bizzes is super-Small. What’s more, VAIN supports “artists in residence” — that is, the salon showcases work by emerging local artists. Also Small. And, as if that weren’t enough, they take part in community initiatives, lending a hand with organizations including the Seattle Young People’s Project, Home Alive, LGBT Community Center, Vera Project, and more.

VAIN is tragically, emphatically, wholeheartedly hip, mind you. I VAIN’d it once and positively agonized over what I could possibly wear that would be happening enough to justify getting my locks lopped at such a haute house of hair. (I shan’t’ve worried, of course, because the folks were sweet as pie, and the haircut was delish.)

VAIN Downtown (yes, there’s a branch in Ballard, too), 2018 1st Ave., 206.441.3441.
