Best Massage I've EVER had! 1/3/2009

I received a gift certificate from my partner for a massage with Gina at Aria and was excited... but not THAT excited. I LOVE massage but am often disappointed. Well, after my first massage with Gina, I will never go to anyone else again. In fact, I think that if I move out of Seattle, I'll have to quit getting massages all together. She really takes her time and LISTENS! to what you hope to get out of your session. She also is good about checking up with you about pressure etc.. throughout the session and actually takes your direction if you have preferences or requests. Afterwords, she goes through the session with you and talks to you about your body, so informative! Especially if you've ever had injuries or if you are a person with tension problems. She really knows her stuff! And she uses a variety of techniques, all of them well. She does great swedish, but if you are a person who likes more pressure, she has the strength and ability to accommodate that. Lastly, her room is perfect, her variety of scents and oils would suit any taste, and the salon itself is charming and conveniently located (and easy to find). Truly, I've never been to a better message therapist and doubt I'll ever find one. Now, I'm fast becoming a regular. So, a giant thank you to Gina, I will tell all my friends and be back as often as possible! Pros: best technique, relaxing ambiance, excellent service in salon, GINA! Cons: none more

Best Colorist in Town - Tamara @ Salon Aria in Capitol Hill 7/31/2008

Tamara is simply the BEST COLORIST in TOWN! She's everything you look for in a stylist from her enthusiastic personality to understanding the color you are looking for. I've been going to Tamara for years... and even flew up from San Francisco to see her. My asian hair is no challenge for this talented girl, and I've always enjoyed my time with her. All in all, I highly recommend Tamara to anyone who's looking for a fabulous color. cheers! more

Best cut since 1986! Thx Josh! 5/1/2008

After spending the past few years making do with just ok to really bad cuts from an array of stylists, I am ecstatic - to say the least - to have found someone who knows what they're doing! Thanks to Josh at Aria my faith in stylists has returned. The amazing thing is that he LISTENED to me! First thing he did was ask me specifics about my hair - problem areas, what I'd like changed, etc. - and we discussed which styles would work for me & why. He had some great suggestions and though I was somewhat nervous about going shorter with already short hair, he seemed so confident that I went with it. It's the BEST hair cut I've had since 1986. I love it. And what's more, everyone else loves it. Even people I just meet tell me they like it. I love Josh! ...Marie.. more

Tamara is wonderful! 1/19/2008

I've been a client of Arial for the past year due to Tamara's consistent and truly talented styling. She listens and internalizes your preferences to create stunning looks time after time. I've been to many a top-rated stylist in Seattle and she is by far the most attentive and personable, to date. I absolutely trust her with my color and I'm going to be honest, I'm pretty high-maintenance. So, if you want to have an exceptional experience, book an appointment with her and take a look in the mirror afterward; because you're gonna look good...! P.s. she's funny and knows alot about how to host a killer dinner party andmake your house look fabulous. Thanks Tamara! Pros: super friendly staff! They always say "have a beautiful day" Cons: well parking is congested but it's capitol hill more

Not what I asked for... 12/13/2007

Thank god I don't cry over hair, it grows back or you can re-do the color. But when I specifically have but only 2 requests and both are ignored. I could never recommend the stylist (Josh) to another human being. Other than that it was a nice salon with an extremely friendly staff. Pros: conviently located Cons: Listening is not a strong point more

Go to Pegi for brows! 8/8/2007

Pegi has turned my untamable, bushy eyebrows from the most hated part of my face to the most loved! Everytime I see her, my brows are transformed into my best feature. She has truly changed the way I feel about my eyebrows, and I would never see anyone but her for my eyebrow waxes! She is a must see!! Pros: Eyebrow waxes! Convenient location more

Rebecka is THE BEST!! 8/3/2007

I'm telling you the truth. I've been getting brazilians for 8 years and recently moved to Seattle from LA a year ago. I've hopped from one waxing place to the next with sad results aka too pricey and not very skilled waxers. I'm used to paying $40 to $50 so for me paying $80 is a little ridiculous. Rebecka came highly recommended through a co-worker who said she was really nice, very skilled and quick. First, I was very impressed by Aria it's self and the front desk girl was very cute and accomodating offering me a beverage while I waited. I barely got a sip out of my water glass when Rebecka came around the corner to greet me something about her made me feel instantly at ease, she asked me how my day was and within 2 minutes she had me on the table and laughing. I have NEVER laughed while getting a brazilian in all my years EVER! The next thing I know she telling me to get dressed. She was so quick I didn't even realize it was over and it was the most thorough wax job I've ever had, not one hair left behind. Pros: Brazilian Wax and Front Desk Cons: Parking more

Brilliant Brazilians! 8/1/2007

If you're in market to try your...er...hand at a Brazilian Wax then Pegi is your "go to" girl. She'll make you feel right at ease and then "de-fur" you in a matter of minutes. With something as sensitive and painful as a brazilian wax, you definitely want time on your side! Her waxing studio may not be oozing with terry cloth draped armchairs, lavender scents wafting through the air ducts, or Enya playing at near subliminal levels but what it lacks in ambiance it more than makes up for in efficiency and price. She charges only $50 for a brazilian! Good luck getting that price anywhere else with nearly the great results. Pros: Price, speed, witty banter Cons: parking more

Pegi is the BEST aesthetician around! 6/24/2007

For more than 2 years I've been going to Aria salon just for Pegi. She is absolutely the most talented aesthetician around. My eyebrows went from a complete mess to gorgeous arches and I feel like a superstar everytime I leave her. I get complements on them constantly (who knew people even looked at eyebrows). Additionally she does fantastic brazilian bikini waxes - I'm in and out of there in less than 30 minutes and her bright personality and quick hands make the experience completely comfortable and (nearly) painless. She simply is THE BEST and if you are looking for quick, reliable and expertise, go to Pegi. You'll never go to anyone else again. Pros: Pegi is brilliant more

Friendliest salon in town! 5/13/2007

I was initially dissappointed when I heard that my stylist, Kate had moved from her previous location at Zero Zero Salon. She is the only person I trust to take her time and give me exactly the kind of haircut I want and I didn't want to brave the claustrophobic, clinical feel of a more upscale salon. I have to say I was immediately and very pleasantly surprised when I walked into Aria. I was greeted by a genuinely friendly receptionist who offered me tea and sat me down in their comfortable lobby. The space was big and beautiful with high ceilings and homey, unpretentious decor. They offered a few of my favorite products. Their magazine selection was unbeatable and the entire staff seemed extremely pleasant, easy going and knowledgeable. Not at all the experience I thought I was in for. And best of all, Kate seemed more at ease than I've ever seen her! I walked away with a huge grin on my face and looking better than ever. The best part is, I can take care of all of my waxing and massage needs there, too. And based on Kate's glowing recommendations and my introductions to Gina, the massage therapist and Rebecca, one of thier estheticians, I won't ever need to look any further than Aria! more

Gina for massage! 5/7/2007

I was looking for a massage therapist in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. I found Gina at Aria Salon and I am so happy I did! She took her time reviewing my intake form, asking me questions about what was going on with my body and making sure I knew what to expect from the massage. I have been to so many thearapists that have just wanted me to get on the table, do a massage, and get out the door. She gave my a teriffic and relaxing massage that made me feel rejuvinated!!!!! Go see her!!!!! Pros: Day of appointments available, relaxing atmosphere more

Great atmoshpere. Friendly Staff 11/30/2006

I usually dread going to get my haircut. A friend recommended getting my hair cut here. I absolutely loved it. The salon looked great from the outside and was even better once I stepped in. I will definitely be coming back to this salon. Bianca was great. Pros: Ambience Cons: None i can think of more

Thank God for Aria!!! 9/14/2006

Thank God for Aria! I needed to get waxed and was tired of unprofessional and unskilled people. Until Rebekah Dunbar stepped in the picture and saved the day. Not only does she know what she is doing, but she is funny and fast with a light hand. No problems at all. I highly recomend Aria and Rebekah! more

Friendly, clean and affordable. 9/13/2006

I got waxed by Rebekah at Aria, I had never been waxed before but she put me at ease and made me feel so comfortable. I liked her proffesionalism and great prices. I will defintaley be returning and recommending her to all my friends. Thanks Aria and Rebekah. Pros: Comfort and affordable more

I finally have a hair style and color that looks great on me! 8/4/2006

I have been having my hair done by Bianca at Aria for the past 5 months and couldn't be happier. I have very fine hair that I could never get to look good.............she helped me to grow it out slightly, gave me a layered color that fits my skin tones and a cut that brings a model feel to my otherwise rather dull cut I used to wear. She also showed me how to use a ceramic hair straightener that has taken my hair from dry and frizzy to shiny and manageable. People I have known for years say "what have you done to yourself, you look totally different" My advice is to go in with an open mind, explain what you don't want, and leave the rest to her creativity. I do recommend going earlier in the day if you don't want to wait.......appointments can take longer than expected. more

do you want to cry? 7/7/2006

if you have ever left a salon crying and would like to experience that feeling again...go here. i had the worst haircut ever from the owner here, and she butchered my bangs. do not go here. i want my money back! Pros: i never have to go here again! Cons: i'm stumped more

Aria - More than a great salon 5/29/2006

I love my visits with Bianca at Aria. I leave knowing I look my best. Everyone tells me my hair looks great and wants to know where I went so they can get theirs done. But it's not just the great hair and products (the new one, Pevonia Botanica is one of the best I've used!). I love sitting in the Aria salon, being cared for, and looking at the original artwork by Seattle's artists that Bianca displays on the salon walls. Aria is more than a great salon, it represents a sense of community. I recommend it for a 'wonderful' experience. Pros: Attention, Relaxed atmosphere, Perfect results more

The salon's the thing! 5/28/2006

I don't think I'll be traveling to a Ballard suburb anytime soon to have my hair done because I've found that I like the Aria salon too much! I know all their stylists are great and I'm not prepaired to travel elsewhere to get what I know I get at Aria. Thank you Aria, for always being there, and giving us the great services you always have!! Pros: Dependability, Knowledgable stylists, Great atmosphere more

Thank You ARIA! 5/28/2006

Thank you Aria for making my wedding day beautiful. The front desk was so helpful in organizing my wedding party and five bridesmaids. We all felt wonderful after our nails,peds and hair. Pros: great service! more

  • In Short
    Vaulted ceilings, cement floors; natural light pours in through two walls of windows--the space is sophisticated and a little edgy, fitting seamlessly into the neighborhood. Inside the salon, hair is bleached, dyed and snipped by hip stylists who chat with clients about work, dating and restaurant recommendations. In contrast, the hidden spa upstairs offers homespun relaxation--it's tranquil without a hint of formality. Services include hair cuts, coloring, perms, massages, facials, manicures, waxing and tinting.
