If you leave work at five; take the express bus home; wet, dry, and style your hair; reapply your eyes; and then grab a cab, at what time and cost will you arrive to dinner?
If you answered less-than-fashionably late, drop in to Swink, downtown’s new blowout bar.
The airy loft space offers eight styles. Sport the pretty English Rose upsweep to the symphony. The G&T (Girly and Tousled) look on your date. Or the composed and sleek Fifth Avenue for a big job interview. Each costs 30 bucks and takes a half hour. Appointments and walk-ins are welcome.
Makeup touch-ups and full applications with looks created by Suresh Seneviratne will also save you time when you don’t trust yourself or want to try something new.
So it’s not the same old story.
