Bellingham’s newest hair salon, Vanity Hair Studio, opened its doors for the first time on May 28. After a long search for the perfect venue, owner Lindsey Erickson got the keys in May of 2018. Deciding on the perfect location wasn’t easy; Erickson and her team backed out of a few spaces before eventually finding the perfect spot. The year-long process to renovate the storefront and prepare for business culminated in a successful opening day, with guests stopping in just to say hi.

“It’s an up-and-coming area; it’s very trendy,” Erickson says of the Dupont Street location. “We’re in a very similar area in Shoreline.” Bellingham is the second location of the popular Seattle salon. Erickson decided to take the plunge when a beloved employee moved to the area. “I always knew I wanted a second space, and when Abigail moved there, I knew it was the spot.”

The salon offers a variety of services, including men and women’s haircuts, balayage color treatments, Brazilian blowouts, waxing, and much more. Vanity Hair Studio is all about one thing: the client. “We want you to feel great about how you look,” Erickson says. With appointments that stretch into the evening hours and availability on Saturdays, the salon is accessible to anyone.

Vanity Hair is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. Appointments can be made online through their website or over the phone.

1401 Dupont St., Bellingham
