Felt Like A Princess! – I got my hair done at Swink for my birthday dinner at a fancy restaurant. I wore what I was going to wear that evening and the hairdresser gave me the perfect style to match my outfit, occasion, and place we were going to! Loved it! I felt like a total princess! Plus it's totally affordable! I will be back!
My Must Stop to Get My Hair Styled! – I have been to Swink 3 times now and will continue to stop in every time I have a special event.
My first visit was to do a trial run prior to my wedding. Danelle worked with me for about an hour looking at the photos that I brought in and listening to my comments and questions. I loved the updo that she did and was extremely excited for my wedding day later that week. Additionally, my mother did a trial run for her hair, and within half an hour, she was extremely pleased with the results of the girl that was helping her.
On the day of the wedding, Danelle recreated the look from the trial run flawlessly. It was extremely secure, while not looking shellacked to my head, and held through out the entire night, including hours of dancing. In addition, the other hair dressers did my 3 bridesmaids' hair and my mothers. All looked gorgeous and walked out of the salon with exactly what they had requested.
My most recent visit was this past weekend, 3 months after I had gotten marred. I had purchased a LivingSocial deal for a reduced price updo. I was headed to a wedding and used the opportunity to get made up. I requested Danelle, and when I walked in the door, she greeted me by name and asked how I had been since my wedding. She then noticed a change in my hair and commented on it immediately. It was wonderful to be remembered, knowing that she has seen over a hundred others since she did my hair, in addition to helping with 3 other wedding parties that morning before seeing me. Again, she did a fabulous job on my hair, and it again, lasted through the night and more hours of dancing, and walking in the rain. Additionally, Danelle did my friend's hair, which turned out amazing. We are both thrilled with how our hair looked.
My experiences have been so great, that I have recommended Swink to other Bride's who have taken me up on my advice and have not been disappointed.
Swink is a fun, warm place to have your hair done for those special occasions. The space is cozy and the staff friendly. And if I haven't mentioned it already, Danelle is amazing and I would recommend her to all of my friends. :) I would absolutely return and am looking forward to my next visit in March for my best friend's wedding.
My New Favorite Place! – I recently saw Susan for a style before attending a friend's wedding. Despite being a busy day, she was right on time for me (which during frantic day of beautification is always appreciated!). She took into consideration my hair's cut and texture, as well as my dress, before deciding on beautiful bouncy curls. I was in and out in 17 (yes, 17) minutes with fabulous hair! I plan on visiting Swink for many future occasions. It is so great that someone finally brought this very NY/LA business model to Seattle and is doing it right!
Go for a blow, a style or get your face beautified – This place is amazing! First, what an incredible idea, love love love being able to just go somewhere for the sole purpose of being made to look fabulous in under an hour, for $30. I mean come on, who wouldn't be down for that? I love the space, fab decor that makes me feel happy just being there. The staff is so friendly and fun to chat with while you're getting your hair or makeup done. I can't wait to go back. They made me look uber fabulosa in about a half hour for what I spend on coffee in a week. This is not a splurge, this is like the new must do on your way out for a night on the town. Do it! You won't be sorry, you'll feel like a million bucks!
What a great idea! – This place is amazing! I was so excited about it when I heard what it was. They do blowouts or styling for your hair, which is great for me because I have flat hair and I'm definitely not good at doing it myself. I wanted to get my hair styled for some holiday parties (BEFORE I heard about Swink!) and after looking into salons, I didn't get anything done because they were expensive and geared more towards cuts/colors; not styling. Now I have a place I can go to for a quick style for $30, and $20 on Tuesday! They were so friendly and they told me I could bring in a picture of a style I want or choose from their menu of ideas. The stylist was great, I love what she did to my flat hair. And the location is great too, since it's right downtown! I am so glad this place opened. They do make-up too which I also look forward to getting done!
