I used to go to this salon (both Ballard and Fremont locations) for hair services in the past. It used to be ok. However, there is more turnover there that at any salon I?ve been to. Recently I?ve noticed a serious decline in the appearance of the staff and quality of service. When I go to a professional salon to pay to have my hair done, I?d like my stylist look like a stylist. I?m not talking crazy trendy clothes and tattoos or anything, I just mean somewhat stylish and put together. And good hair!! This place has gotten so sloppy. Add to that everything I?ve heard and read about the ownership (could that be related to the turnover problem?) and I think I?ll pass. You?re much better off going somewhere else. This place is a joke.

Both me and my wife have been customers there for years. We've both noticed an unusual decline in appearance in some of the staff. Balloon pants, clown slacks, and such. WUWT? Also, there seems to be alot of 'weight' being thrown around...in other words, is this a health spa or what? I even spotted an employee wearing pajama bottoms. I should know, I have the same pair! SHAPE UP! And I mean literally!

The makeup application service was very short. He barely spent any time or any products on my face to have charged me 45 dollars for it. Was it worth it, No! The outcome was horrible. The person, although nice, did not understand, even though I gave several examples of the look I was going for. At the end of the service I had to redo my makeup since it was done so poorly.
2nd service:
The updo was done by a woman who claimed she had worked in Hawaii and was familiar w/ ethnic hair. She kept complaining about how heavy my hair was and making such comments like I have so much of it which made me feel as if I had to apologize for her inexperience and lack of ability to do an updo. I am Samoan so I'm not sure whose hair she really had experience working on.
She also asked if I was going to get my makeup done in which I said that I had just came from the makeup artist. (This only confirmed the bad job that the makeup artist had done.) She tried to cover up her mistake by saying oh and it looks beautiful.
Habitude at the locks has nothing but amateurs charging a heavy price for their service. Although everyone had been nice I don't see any reason to do business with them in the future. I would prefer to have the job done properly by experienced professionals who has had customer service experience.

Pros: Inexperienced workers that charge too much for thier services. The service did not start on time though I came early I had to wait.

Cons: Nice atmosphere and nice people although not too bright.

I always get nervous about my hair -- it's curly and can be very unruly. A bad cut messes my hair up for months. But Aza, at Habitude at the Locks, is great. She actually took the time to talk to me about my hair and what I wanted, and fiddled with it. I hate when stylists take a two-second glance at my hair then whisk me off to shampoo, taking no time to see what needs to be done or asking how I usually wear my hair.

Aza did exactly what she discussed doing, so there were no surprises. I absolutely love my cut and have gotten so many compliments on it.

I am saddened by such negative comments about this Spa. I have worked there for almost a year and know first hand that the employees are a family and are happy to be working in such a beautiful and well run full service Salon and Spa. We are happy when our clients come in after a long day and we are able to commit to them fully so that they can relax and enjoy the short time that they have reserved away from the world's stressful times. I ask that you give us a try and see for yourself how wonderfully relaxing and pampering our Aveda Spa really is! It is best to come 1/2 hr early so that you can change into a robe, have a glass of tea or lemon water, sit in the FREE Hot Rock Sauna that we have for our guests, and enjoy the nuts and berries that we have in our comfy guest waiting areas before your relaxing treatments!

I love going to this spa for a relaxing experience. They are open on Monday's and they can almost always fit you in last minute. The spa has raw nuts and cranberries to munch on while you are waiting for your service.

Absolutely love this day spa! I received a gift certificate for this salon and spa and just loved the services I received. While I did not check out the salon, the spa was fabulous and oh so relaxing. If you are spending the day at the spa (highly recommend a facial and massage-heaven!) you also get to use the sauna before, after or between services. I would definitely return. What a relaxing experience!

I got a gift certificate from my husband last Valentines day for Habitude. He definately got brownie points for that one!

If you want a massage, THIS is the place to go. You get your own little bathrobe and slippers, get to pick your aromatherapy scents, and get to lounge around in the sauna afterwards.

I say, make an entire day out of it. After all, they serve lunch too!

Habitude is truly an amazing experience for anyone who needs to relax, recharge and simply be pampered! Whether you are seeking a fabulous new cut or some hair color, or some spa services, you will not be disappointed! My particular favorite thing to experience when I am at Habitude is the Essential Facial (by Sabine... hope I'm spelling her name correctly) which comes complete with some massage! When you arrive at the spa you are greeted with some tea (which is incredibly good), a spa robe and are able to keep your belongings in a locked locker in a changing room. Between treatments you enjoy tea, smoothies, mixed nuts and berries, a sauna, etc. The sights, sounds and smells at this spa are unmatched in Seattle. I also highly recommend the togetherness massage for a couple's experience that will leave you both in joyous moods! Their website is: http://www.habitude.com/.

I got my hair cut at Habitude for a while a couple years ago. The stylists are pretty good, but the place got so busy that if I was five minutes late for an appointment, I couldnt get all I wanted done on that day! I even called ahead to say traffic was bad and they couldnt try and keep my appointment complete. The place has a really nice interior, but I wish they could be more personable with me. For a better Aveda salon, try Beehive.

This is a nice hair salon downstairs with a day spa upstairs. It is an Aveda concept salon, so pretty much all the products they use are Aveda. Hair services are great and they have some talented people. The Spa is also nice, they offer an array of services, massage, facials, waxing, and nails. Noise can be an issue if you require complete silence, the doors and walls are rather thin in the treatment rooms so you sometimes do hear outside noise. Also, there is no elevator, so if you are going to the Spa you will have to deal with stairs. Nice atmosphere though, very "natural."
