I am known to my girlfriends as a "hair whore". Years ago I habitually swapped hair stylists in a rather neurotic fashion. That changed when I found the "one" two years ago in Virginia.

However, I find myself a recent inhabitant of the West Village and I found SWANK via an on-line review. Sharon took me in a moment's notice to literally SAVE not only my horridly-box-dyed-hair, but my self-esteem. My hair is quite lovely, I must say. She didn't have much to work with but gave me low + high-lights - and I feel beautiful again. Thank you Sharon!

Pros: Satisfaction, Price and Atmosphere

Cons: NONE

.

Swank used to have really competitive pricing but their prices have shot up several times over the last year. The used to have 5 or 6 stylists / stations and they're down to three and I wonder if they are trying to make up for it by charging a lot more. My haircut and color were fine but nothing special, not worth what they charged me. I'm feel badly that they aren't doing well but I don't want to be the one making up for their lost business.

Swank is great-- the atmosphere is friendly and laid-back and the stylist Alx works scissor magic. Alx cut my hair for the second time this weekend and I couldn't be happier. I've never received so many compliments on my hair before! The cut she gave me is funky and fun, yet easy to maintain. I'm officially addicted and can't imagine letting anyone else cut my hair now!!

Pros: amazing cuts, fun atmposhere, friendly stylists

Cons: none!

Sank is jus the best! Between, Kasha, Tania, and Sharon you can't go wrong. I ALWAYS get exactly what I want from cut AND color. They take their time and really listen to what I want. I would Never go anywhere else with my hair. On a side note I do NOT miss Marco and Harry who seemed to have attitudes more than listening skills. Small salon with personal attention and haridressers who listen. What more could you ask for!!

Now that Marcos and Harry are gone, I can't recommend Swank. Plus, they seem to be keeping it a secret as to where they went. Well here it is! They own a fabulous salon called Chelsea 22 on 22nd street. The phone number is 212.929.0816. The salon is a beautiful airy space with fabulous service. Enjoy!

Pros: Real haircut

Cons: OK

I have tried 3 different salons during my year of living in NYC, and they all disappointed me. The stylists didn't listen to what I wanted, and I was never impressed with the result. I tried Swank after reading the amazing reviews, and I have to say, it is an amazing place to get a haircut. Sharon is incredible; the haircut she gave me is the best one I've ever had in my life. She totally understood exactly what I needed and knew how to give me an easy, beautiful shape. I love my new haircut. The salon is very relaxed, and I love the vibe that so strongly contrasts that of other salons that are snooty or seem to be trying too hard to be hip. I strongly recommend Sharon.

Pros: Awesome haircut

Cons: A little hard to find if you're not familiar with the West Village.

.

I have been to Marcos at Swank twice, and the first visit was awesome.

Unfortunately, the second (and last) visit was not as successful. Marcos did give me a lengthy consultation about what I wanted. However, during the wash I expressed some concern to him that the color would end up too light. Then, during the most painful wash of my life, and after obviously speaking about me in a foreign language to a colleague, Marcos accused me of thinking he was "playing" as a stylist and did not know what he was doing.

After the wash, I was taken to the chair for what I thought would be a cut and blowdry. When I sat down I looked at the color (of course). Marcos then said that I would not be able to see the color as my hair was wet, "duh". He again accused me of thinking he was "playing" as a stylist. I said that I was sure it would be good, but that it takes time to develop a relationship with a hairdresser. Marcos then dried the top of my hair and I was, for want of a better word, dismissed from the chair without the cut that I had booked in for as there as "no time" and there had been a mistake with the booking (not likely).

After an attempt to overcharge me for the highlights (presumably to make up for the tip which they knew would not be forthcoming), I left the salon with dripping hair and no cut, with the whole salon staring at me and Marcos making loud comments that he did not want me as a customer.

The experience can only be described as horrible and embarrassing. I will say that the color was, in fact, excellent, and exactly what I was after. Unfortunately I did not get the chance to say this.

In summary, if you are after a great cut and color for a good price, and are happy to leave the stylist to do their thing, Marcos will be for you. If, like me, you are a little nervous when trying new things and need a little reassurance along the way, and don't have time for prima donna acts by hairdressers, I'd probably give him a miss.

Pros: Expertise

Cons: Attitude

I was satisfied with what Marcos did with my hair. He cut it, colored it and gave some highlights. I needed easy to manage hair and the cut allowed me just that. The salon is little expensive for me ($75 cut, $75 color, $125 highlights - I have short hair), but I think it was worth it.

I have dark hair and I've been looking for someone to give me light highlights without looking striped and cheap. A friend recommended Tania. Not only did she listen, but she gave me more than what I was looking for. My hair looks modern, edgy and hot! I have had this color for weeks and it hasn't faded. I am still getting compliments. I will continue to go to Tania for color and look forward to experiencing a cut with her!

I just have to say that this is my favorite salon. This is the first place EVER where after I get my hair cut and styled by Sharon,,I don't have to run home to redo my hair with my own productsand styling tools. Sharon is so sweet and friendly. She has a good sense of what looks good but definatly listens to what you want and need. Everyone there makes you feel comfortable. The conversation in the salon is great. You walk out feeling great!!! I definatly recommend this salon. I'm so grateful that I found this salon.

Marcos has been cutting my hair for over 10 years, and I am psyched that both he and Harry are now back in NYC at Swank. Marcos is terrific. As a man, I like the fact that his cuts grow in nicely and last for a couple of months without looking unkempt. But even more importantly, my wife loves how my hair looks. As for Swank, I had no idea what to expect when I heard the name, but the salon is cozy, comfortable and very welcoming.

Pros: experience and talent, ambience, location

.

Marcos is honest and doesn't just tell you what you want to hear; the prices are very fair, and the service is friendly. Most important, the cuts are great. The place is very no frills, and not at all "Swank," but that makes it a nice relaxing getaway from really shi-shi salons where you pay in part for the decor and the ambiance. I don't plan to go anywhere else because the people and the prices and the cuts and color are all great!

I went to Swank with my hair all grown out and frankly it looked kinda terrible. Marcos completely transformed me and gave me the best haircut of my life, no joke. The last place i went to was Frederic Fekkai and the haircut I got there didn't even come close. I would recommend Swank and Marcos to anyone looking for an amazing cut at a decent price, who doesn't require the pretensions of those other Salons.

Marcos was recommended to me by a friend after I received a bad haircut at a very expensive salon. Within one hour, he was able to repair my cut, give me the haircut of my life and a blow-out to match! He was a great listener and gave me exactly what I asked for. I will go back again and again.

MARCOS IS THE MAN!
I went to the Swank Hair Salon on Wed, Dec 5th and had Marcos cut my hair. I had read all the wonderful reviews about him and decided to try him out and I am so so glad I did. I brought him a picture of what I wanted and he said "I love it". Right then I knew he understood my vision and would give me the cut that I wanted. I have long hair and wanted to keep my length but just have it fall better. Often hair stylists cut my hair much shorter than what I describe and I spend months waiting for my hair to grow out. What I like about Marcos is that he took the time to understand what I wanted and didn't rush me or "half as@" listen to me. I left there feeling like a diva and two days later - of walking in the snow, dancing and sleeping on my hair, it still looks looks hot.
Thanks Marcos for understanding my Victoria Secret flowy hair look!

Had a great experience at Swank. Found it through reviews at City Search & didn't know what to expect. Was given Sharon as my stylist (for an apptment the day after I called). She was fabulous! Got probably the best cut in my life & I've been to the best of NY and LA stylists. Took alot of time which meant a lot. Definitely not rushed & was obvious she wanted to please. Plus I just really liked her. I am thrilled. Teeny tiny place w/ not too much room to move but that didn't matter at all. I know that I will stick with Sharon & can't wait to see her again (altho my cut is growing out so beautifully I don't need to rush). Definitely more affordable than other good salons but still costs a chunk with cut and highlights. But that's just NY unfortunately. Saw the other stylists cuts also and they were just as fab. HIGHLY RECOMMEND A ++++++++++++++

I am extremely picky about my hair and learned about Swank from someone on the subway. I had the best time with Marcos and I haven't had this good of a hair cut since 2002. I have sent all of my co-workers and friends to Marcos who are now devotees like myself.

Marcos at Swank is wonderful! He knew how to cut and dry my hair very well. I have naturally thick and unruly curls, and Marcos is adept at cutting and styling my hair to make it manageable and soft--both straight and curly. HIghly recommend him. The salon is not uber-chic, but the cut and style was first-class, and very reasonable ($70 for a cut and blow-dry). I have lived in NY for 10 mos and finally, I've found my hair stylist.

Swank was perfect. I called on a Saturday morning, and got an appointment that afternoon. The atmosphere was fun and lively, everyone seemed to be best friends. Swanky was a throwback salon to what the west village used to be.
My cut was with Marcos, who gave me one of the best haircut (and blowout) I have ever had. I have never left a salon this pleased; my cut was inexpensive, and looked perfect.

One great thing about Swank is that Tania, Kasha and Sharon cut AND color. In an era of specialists, these ladies do it all.

On the downside, Tania has stopped accepting Saturday appointments because of her boyfriend, which is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard.

Their prices have definitely gone up. I prefer Snip n Sip.

I've been to Swank three times and have received excellent cuts from Marcos. Swank is a down-to-earth and unpretentious salon where the folks are friendly and the cuts are very good. Marcos is a very cool guy who really puts thought into the haircut and is fun to talk to as well. Very recommended.

I am wary of most stylists as I have thin curly hair than is not easy to cut or style. (I have had some really bad experiences!) All I ask is that the stylist does what I ask them to do and not cut too much off! A friend suggested Tania. I went to see her for a haircut and explained about my crazy hair, carefully detailing what I wanted, and SHE DID EXACTLY WHAT I ASKED! AMAZING! She was fun and bubbly and we had a great conversation as well. I highly recommend her.

Finally, a place in the city that delivers more than it pretends to! Harry is a master stylist. I go in and don't even have to worry about communicating what I want because I trust him implicitly. He makes my hair look hot! From what I can tell, he makes everyone look hot! If you don't want to look hot, I wouldn't bother.

Swank is a hidden gem- a small salon, tucked away on a charming street in the Village with reasonable prices and a very talented staff. Marcos has cut my hair several times now and it has looked great every time. I have long hair and his layered cuts grow in really well, they don't lose their shape and are still easy to style a few months on. His work is far better than stylists at other salons that I have been too that are in the same price range. And he's a really nice guy and very charming to talk to and they have huge stacks of all the dumb celebrity weeklies around to keep you entertained if you are going to be there awhile. It's a very casual place but with really excellent service.

Marcos is a rare find. He charges a mid-level price, but actually provides a unique consultation with every visit, and he's got the skills to back it all up. He takes the time required to give you what you want, period. The first time I went, he scoped out the situation and we talked for 10 minutes about what we could do. This was such a refreshing and surprising change from typical mid-range stylists that deliver the same generic cut, and then shoo you out the door. He listened, and then most importantly, suggested. He had a vision for my hair, and it matched perfectly with my personality and what I wanted but was unable to articulate! A great, great mens cut, and he provides a very high level of individualized attention. I believe Marcos puts a great deal of pride in his work, and got the sense that he has no interest in giving generic cuts. He wants to deliver a unique style that matches who you are. This is so rare to find for $45!!!

Marcos is a rare find. He charges a mid-level price, but actually provides a unique consultation with every visit, and he's got the skills to back it all up. He takes the time required to give you what you want, period. The first time I went, he scoped out the situation and we talked for 10 minutes about what we could do.

There are two amazing things about Swank. First of all, Marcos did a beautiful job on my cut and color and for a reasonable price. He listened to what I wanted and gave his own expert advice and I ended up looking amazing. (which is a contrast to many other places i've been, where they pretend to listen but then do whatever they feel like)
But, maybe even more importantly, Swank is a very chill place. I've been to so many obnoxious, pretentious salons where the stylists ignore you and chat with each other, but at Swank everyone is totally welcoming and friendly and you get the feeling that it's just one big happy family. The only bad thing about it is that it's kind of small but that made it even more fun -- I had a great experience and have already gotten compliments on my hair, so I will definitely be going back!

An unpretentious salon and a very welcoming environment! I called with only one day's notice and it was very easy to get an appointment. Marcos was my stylist and he was talented as well as a genuinely cool guy with lots of hair knowledge and many good styling/product tips. My hair was short already but really needed some styling and Marcos did an amazing job. I also saw them do some major transformations on some others while I was waiting....So for minor changes or for a whole new look I would recommend this place to anyone!

I've been going to see Harry for a total of 6 years now (including the time he was away from NYC obviously) and he is by far the best cutter, stylist and colorist I have had. With most places your hair looks good when you leave but then you have trouble styling yourself at home or worse, it looks bad within two weeks...but Harry really knows how to cut and you end up loving it even more 2 weeks from your cut as he learns how your hair grows and thus what to do when he cuts...

Plus he is just the funniest and nicest guy around! He's great with guy's hair (like mine) and women's (like all my friends that go there!!).

Check him out...or his partner Marcos!! You won't regret it!

If you're looking for a drastic change or just to maintain your current locks, Marcos is the guy to see! When I had really short hair he encouraged me to grow it. Years later when I wanted it short again, he gave me an amazing cut. And Marcos is the only stylist I would think of going to when I got married. If you want to find a stylist you can trust you have to make an appointment with Marcos.

Have been seeing Marcos for about 12 years now. Have yet to walk out with bad cut or color. Can give you a trendy look without making you look like a fashion victim, always making sure that it suits your face and your needs. Highly reccomend him.

"Swank" was my first New York haircut and my first haircut in 4 months, so I was desperate to a trim but nervous at the thought of trusting all my length with a new stylist. Marcos did an amazing job, my hair is now shiny, soft, healthy and I barely had to lose any of my length! Marcos gave me some great at home tips that didn't require expensive salon products. I'm so happy with my hair and to have found my New York hairdresser first try! Thanks Marcos!

I woke up this morning having a really bad hair day. It had been two months since my last haircut and I didn't have a stylist to go to. I heard about Swank on the elevator in my office building so I walked over (on my lunch hour) to check it out and I AM SO GLAD THAT I DID. Marcos greeted me at the door and he was able to accommodate me on the spot. Marcos is very friendly, I was very comfortable in his chair and he transformed my hair from a boring bob into a hip new look. Everyone who works in the salon is friendly and upbeat. The price was reasonable and the service was great! Definitely check this place out. I know I will be returning.

Marcos gave me a great haircut! It had been months since I had gotten my hair cut and he totally reshaped my hair (and didn't even chastize me for cutting my own bangs). He was so friendly and made me feel so glamorous. I highly recommend this salon!!

I'm always afraid that a stylist is going to go crazy with my long hair and cut off way more than I wanted, but Marcos listened to what I asked for and gave me a great cut. My friends keep on telling me I have "movie star hair." The salon is very small and homey and everyone that worked there was very friendly. I'll definitely go back.

Who said that best is yet to come? Well it did, Marcos and Harry are back! It is relaxing to be pampered by Marcos, while enjoying coffee and great hospitality in this incredibly warm and friendly place. Yet again people are stopping me on the streets complimenting on my hair. Honestly, nobody can mix the color as good as Marcos and Harry.

I'm very, very picky with my hair but I've found the best kept secret in New York. Harry Reillo knows about color, he gives great haircuts and he is the sweetest person. He really makes you feel like a movie star after he's done your hair! And the prices are very reasonable.

I absolutely love this place. Not only did Harry give me the best haircut and blow-dry I've ever had, but he also offered me coffee and used spenda and coffeemate, which I use at home that almost no place ever also has! Very exciting for me. Plus he was a total sweeheart, the place itself was adorable, and on top of it all, the whole thing was extremely affordable. I say this is the place to go!!!
