Book Your Wedding With VAIN!

Monday, March 23rd, 2015

With warmer weather comes wedding bells, so tie the knot in style with fabulous makeup and hair at VAIN! We offer hair and makeup services for brides, grooms and wedding party guests for engagement photos and day-of flawlessness with a variety of talented stylists at our Downtown, West Seattle and Ballard locations.

We understand how stressful planning can be, so at VAIN we try to make it easy for you to get the look you want for your wedding day. To get started, schedule a free 15-minute consultation with your chosen stylist and/or makeup artist to talk about your look; be sure to bring photographs and examples with you for inspiration! After your consultation, a receptionist can help you book a trial-run for your hair and makeup so that you can test out some day-of looks and make sure everything is picture-perfect for your wedding day appointment.

Don’t have a stylist yet? Give us a call at any one of our three locations and a receptionist can help match you with the right stylist!

Check out these lovely photos by Kristen Marie Photography of VAIN client, Hillary and her fiance from her engagement last summer featuring hair by Sarah B. and makeup by resident makeup artist, Shannon Bisconer.

Offbeat Magic: Party Hair!

Friday, October 14th, 2011

Offbeat updo #1: pretty in pink

When VAIN BFF + Offbeat Empire founder Ariel Meadow Stallings asked VAIN if we’d updo her staff for her mega Offbeat Empire reception, we didn’t hesitate. We love Ariel’s DIY, DWYW, nontraditional approach to weddings, parenting, home, and style in general. Party hair without borders? YES.

So an A-team of VAIN stylists (including Rebekah, Janae, and up-and-coming assistant Braeden) packed up the crimping irons + industrial strength hairspray and went to work. Here’s what went down as the Offbeat hair went up:

Party time! The teased and the tame get wild.

Huge thanks to photographer Jonas Seaman for taking all the above photos. Check out Jonas’ re-cap of the party with lots more hair shots here, and the official Offbeat Empire re-cap here. Want to get some offbeat party hair of your own? Give VAIN a call at 206-441-3441 downtown or 206-706-2707 in Ballard to schedule an appointment or free consultation.
