What makes us different?
There's a lot about our salon that you might find different from places you have been in the past.
Our historic building began its life more than a century ago as a furniture manufacturing facility and there are remnants of the Harmon Factory throughout. Our exposed brick (stabilized with seismic retrofitting) and ductwork provide an industrial chic ambiance. Each stylist works in their own room which gives you privacy and comfort and gives each staff member the ability to create an environment they love. Balanced with the private rooms are common areas for processing and shampoo.
We are a home for creative, entrepreneurial professionals who share a vision to create a space where you can find your best self. Our staff members work for themselves, but not by themselves. Every member of our team brings their own unique talents and insights to Azarra, giving you access to the solutions you have been searching for. Want to learn how to style your own hair like a pro? Want to find a way to let your boldness shine without scaring your boss? Need a cut that works with minimal styling? Looking for a salon to call home? We have the people. We have the answers.
Salon & Wine?
While you are in the salon, have a sample of the featured wine of the day and browse our shelves for a new favorite. We stock affordable wines (an expensive bottle on our shelves is $30) for everyday drinking from around the world and our own back yard (we have even stocked wine made right here in Tacoma!) All of the wine is hand selected by our staff and we can give you honest feedback on every bottle. We are one of the few wine stores in town where you can find rosé year 'round. Our selection is in constant flow, so if you find one you love, take a picture of it with your phone and let us know so we can make sure it gets re-ordered!
We have three wine tastings a year. After Easter we have a Spring tasting of light and fresh wines for warm weather drinking (mostly whites and rosés, but some reds that can take a chill and often ciders, as well.) After the kids go back to school we have our Autumn tasting featuring big bold reds to sip in front of the fire and keep you warm through the cold months. In early December we have our Holiday tasting which is all about the bubbles! We select sparkling wines from around the world to help you celebrate the holidays. It also serves as the salon holiday party, so you will get to see us all dressed up. There's never a charge to attend, and featured wines are 10% off the day of the event. It's always a fun time, so bring your friends. We publish the tasting dates on Facebook, in our salon newsletter, and on our blog.
