Britni did an excellent job with my hair and make-up for my wedding. She listened to my ideas and improved upon them to create something fabulous! Britni was so diligent with pinning my updo that it lasted all day and night perfectly. I received so many compliments from my guests on my hair and make-up and now I’m loving all of the photos. I’m so grateful that Britni was a part of my big day!

Flexibility was rated lower since they moved my bridal party's appointment to an earlier time slot than initially agreed upon.

With my wedding ceremony at 2PM, I was looking for a place that could do multiple hair and make-up so that we wouldn’t have to start at like 7AM! Swink was both convenient and affordable (for wedding hair/make-up!), especially since myself and my wedding party were staying at the Sheraton in downtown Seattle. My stylist was Amanda and I could not have been happier with the way my hair and make-up turned out. We did a trial appointment, which was great and then on the day-of made a few adjustments. She was very patient on my wedding day as there were many different people competing for my attention. Most importantly, I looked like a much more beautiful version of myself for my wedding day! I didn’t want to look overly made up or somehow unlike myself and Amanda achieved that beautifully. Thanks Amanda!

Hair: I can tell that they're used to doing the same old wedding updos. Brought photos to my trial but somehow ended up with the traditional tightly pulled back bun full of curls. For the actual appointment, told her I didn't like it last time and tried to steer her back in the direction of what I wanted but it ended up looking almost exactly the same.

Makeup: Looked and felt heavy and unnatural and was caking in a few places where it was too thick. Also, the colors she used were very shimmery so I had to go home and powder myself and fix a bunch of things I didn't like.

Overall, not sure if I would go to a salon again. It was nice not to be stressed or worry about messing it up, but I could have done a better job on both my hair and makeup if I did it myself AND I would have saved $200. The girls that had their hair down had it turn out beautiful and their waves lasted all day, so I would recommend this salon for downstyles, but NOT for updos or makeup.

After I looked into having someone come to my hotel suite to do my hair and makeup on the day of my wedding and finding out it was way out of my budget, I found Swink. They had really great reviews and the salon was located right across the street from our hotel, plus they could accomodate my entire bridal party on the big day. I also loved the idea that in addition to the appointments for my wedding hair and makeup for the bride, they include a trial appointment so you can test things out.

I had my trial appointments about three weeks before my wedding and liked the results, but I showed up on my wedding day with a few changes I wanted to make. My hairdresser agreed and said the changes would be no problem. It was so fun to be there with my mom and all my bridesmaids around me while I got pretty. I was so nervous but in the end everything turned out perfectly and I couldn't wait for the groom to see me! He absolutely loved everything about my hair and makeup.

It was $200 for the Bridal Hair & Makeup Package which included a trial hair and trial makeup appointment plus the wedding day appointments (a total of 4 appointments). I thought this was a really good price and the trial appointments were absolutely worth it (I did the trial the day of my bridal shower). The also serve complimentary champagne for the wedding day appointments, which was fun.

Bridesmaid Hair is $50 and Bridesmaid Makeup is $45. Some of my bridal party thought this was too expensive but the ones who did use Swink on the wedding day were happy with the results. I'd definitely recommend Swink based on price and results.

I ended up canceling my contract with Swink because they were beyond difficult to work with. The biggest problem I had was scheduling my trial hair appointment with the same stylist that would be available on my wedding day. They were very unorganized and had poor communication. I had my contract with them for 8 months and when it came down to 2 weeks before the wedding (after I contacted them multiple times to schedule my trial) and I still didn't have an appointment to practice my updo - I gave up! No vendor should stress you out this much!

This is a difficult review to write only because my daughter chose such a simple style that it almost seemed silly to pay for a "pre-style" a couple of weeks before. The style was well-done, however, and exactly what she wanted even though she felt a little uncomfortable with the sylist, who didn't respond much to her when she was commenting on what she was doing. My style was beautiful, although not what I had envisioned when I picked a photo. The comment after the fact was that the model had longer hair than I did, which I wish they would have made note of beforehand. In the end, the style was gorgeous and very inexpensive! Our other daughter, the flower girl, also had a stunning style for a low price. They are very careful to protect private information, which I appreciated, but I did wish that the girl at the desk would have had access to at least some of our contract. I had already paid $50.00 at our first visit and felt lucky that she believed me. She didn't really know what the rest of the arrangement was and so I ended up needing to pay more than she had told me. There was nothing wrong with what I was charged; it was just confusing and I thought it could have been handled more professionally. Overall, I'd say we had a good experience and I'd definitely stop in for a quick up do if I had a dressy affair to attend.

They did an amazing job with my whole wedding parties hair/makeup and mine as well, but their customer service is seriously lacking. It took weeks to actually get someone to get in touch with us to confirm our appointments and then when we got there, the front desk didn't have our contract information. Coming from the service industry, I also expect a certain level of actual customer service at the salon. No one there was very upbeat or customer service like. They all seemed either tired or bored which is a real turnoff when you are there for an exciting reason.

Swink saved my day. After being unhappy with another Salon a week before my wedding I was told to try out Swink. Not only were their prices affordable, the place is not pretentious or trying to sell you everything they have in it. The ladies at Swink were so kind to me and my 3 bridesmaids and they really made a big effort to fit us in. My hair and make-up looked wonderful and stayed put through the day. I am so happy that this last minute change was able to happen, I look forward to going to Swink again.

Thank you Swink! A very special thank you to Liz who was in charge of doing my hair and makeup. Liz was awesome! Although I was a little unsure during my hair/makeup trial run, my wedding day hair and makeup was incredible! I really could not have asked for more. She was flexible in changing my original hair and makeup plans, and went above and beyond what was expected. She even upgraded my warm champagne by offering me their chilled champagne which was an added bonus!! I walked out of there feeling on cloud 9 and truly felt like a bride. Thank you Liz and Swink for taking such great care of me and my bridal party. You guys are fantastic!
