Meet The Owner

Bri Swain 

 Bri is a Lexington, KY native & has been doing hair ever since she can remember. She started doing braids for softball teams when her sister Brinley was traveling for tournaments all summer & all the girls needed their hair braided for the games. Fun fact Brinley is now a full time makeup artist on the GlamLex team & has been working with Bri since she was 10 years old.
Bri started cosmetology school in 2009 & fell in love with bridal hair while studying at Paul Mitchell. She worked in her grandmothers salon in Richmond, KY to start out & quit working behind the chair in a salon setting in 2011 to pursue a career in the wedding hair industry. Ever since then she's been a full time business owner of GlamLex Events & has loved every single second of it. 

 Bri married her husband Ryon in 2010 who is a nursing house supervisor at Baptist Hospital & they have two beautiful spoiled puppy dogs named Jax & Luna. If she is not doing hair she's most likely shooting photography part time or can be seen in Joseph Beth Booksellers losing control & buying to many books. 

Bridal up do & all things braid obsessed, Bri comes from a long line of hairstylists & has over 14 years of experience in the hair industry. She graduated from Paul Mitchell in 2010 & is a fully licensed cosmetologist in the state of Kentucky. 
Bri has been a TOP 50 & 100 nominee 6 times in the global wide competition for the Behind the Chair - One Shot Hair Awards in the Special Event Styling, Intricate Braiding, & Styling Shot of the Year categories. She was up for 3 nominations in 2022 & attended the One Shot Awards for her work in Orlando this past August. You can see her work featured on @behindthechair_com & @oneshothairawards on instagram. 
She was recently published in the global wide magazine Beauty Launchpad by Cosmoprof Beauty for one of her most popular crown braids. Bri also won the Cosmoprof Beauty "Frozen Braid" contest in 2019 for her Elsa inspired braid. Her work can be seen on Beyond The Ponytail as a featured artist on their BTP Society Website & has been featured on the cover of Kentucky Bride Magazine in 2021.
