The Building

​VAIN is a hair salon and boutique in the Belltown neighborhood. We have two floors of artist studios above our space. For 21 years, we have provided affordable studios for local artists.


The salon & boutique are open every day. As far as the artists studios, artists have 24 hour access to their space through a separate entrance.


There is paid street parking and plenty of paid parking lots in our area. VAIN has no free parking for employees or artists.

Public Transportation

Because we are in the heart of Seattle, every bus comes within a few blocks of our building. There is also light rail a few blocks away.


The studios are located on the second and third floors of our building. There are no elevators, only stairs.


Each studio has a separate key held only by the artist and the building manager. There is no security but we have never had a break in in our entire history. All outer doors are locked and very secure at night. There are lots of cameras in the alleyway behind the building.
