Excellent experience – The salon featured great service with a friendly staff. The facial was done skillfully and very relaxing. A quick and easy bikini wax was another plus. Highly reccomended.
Service fare, NOT always clean, customer service below average. Got the a couple of times, cerviced by Natasha - not so bad. next time she wasn't available and i was booked by Rachel. She is yong and polite but the station wasn't clean and she didn't really do a good job at all. decided not to go there anymore. even thou they have a good price for brazilian
Receptionist is a B*tch, Imagine what their service is like. – Receptionist: I'm calling from Adore Spa to let you know you missed your wax appointment.
Me: I dont recall making an appointment there. Maybe you have the wrong number.
Receptionist: No... this is the right number and person.
Me: What do you need from me?
Receptionist: No... More like, you're sorry. (HANGS UP)
NEXT DAY, AFTER RESEARCHING FOR THEIR NUMBER AND READING THE OTHER REVIEWS ON HERE:
Me: Hi, can I speak to your manager please?
Receptionist: This is the manager.
Me: No, you're the receptionist. I need the manager or I can call the business bureau.
Receptionist: I am the manager and receptionist.
Me: Your mother is the manager and she is an older woman so pass me on to her.
Receptionist: (HANGS UP)
EVIDENTLY SOME ONE MADE AN APPOINTMENT WITH MY CELL NUMBER. APPARENTLY THIS GIRL DOESNT KNOW THE CONCEPT BEHIND MAKING UP A NUMBER AND IT HAPPENING TO BE AN ACTUAL WORKING NUMBER. IN ALL REALITY, I DONT BLAME THE PERSON WHO DID THIS BECAUSE I WOULDNT WANT TO LEAVE MY REAL NUMBER WITH THESE SNOTTY PEOPLE. IT IS NOT BUSINESS LIKE TO CALL BACK A CUSTOMER AND YELL AT THEM FOR MISSING AN APPOINTMENT. A NUMBER LEFT SHOULD ONLY BE USED TO REMIND AND CONFIRM. FUNNY THING IS, I DONT EVEN GET WAXES DONE. SHES LUCKY IM HARDLY EVER IN THE CITY OR I'D STOP BY AND SP*T IN HER FACE.
They are on a bikini wax high horse! If this was a haircut, my bangs would be on a slope. – The receptionist was snotty. The waxer was snotty. Granted, I am not a waxing expert but I've done my fair share and this girl was so painful and she must have pulled the strip 14 times all for me to look like I shaved with a blind fold on. I am not hairy either!
If you want someone that makes you feel like you got a cute little haircut, go to the older woman from Kazikstan at Elite, same price, not as nice a place but six rips and it's adorable!
GREAT WAX! CLEAN PLACE! – I have been going to Natasha since the summer on a recommendation from my sister who followed Natasha from her former location. When I read the nasty reviews on city search i was compelled to call and speak to someone about the lack of "sterility". I was informed that the equipment is sterilized after EACH person and Natasha used a NEW wooden stick for my bikini wax last time I was there. Shame on those ignorant people who lack the ABILITY to inquire instead of writing such nasty reviews and scaring others. As far as im concerned the only negative is how quickly Natasha books up bc it is nearly impossible to make an appointment with her, in which case see Rachel. Everytime I go it is always a quick and great experience, rest assured you ARE in GREAT hands...
great brazilan waxes but not clean! – they're quick, they're fast and they're efficent, you're in and out and you're done. I had my first brazilian there and it wasn't so bad. So i ended up going back. course over time I started to notice things. like how they re-dip into the wax everyone else has used. and how they use the same metal stick on everyone. that kinda grossed me out a little.
though i was glad that the receptionist changed and now it's another girl there, who when i went was new and starting out but was very friendly and did not give an attitude and was very accomodating.
i'd recommend them to other people if they got more sticks for individuals and stopped re-dipping!
Cheap but seriously lacking in cleanliness – I think the only reason this place gets such great reviews is because of the price. I would have to admit that it is a whole lot cheaper than other places in regards to waxing and they are pretty good for the price. But the key phrase is "for the price". I have been to higher end spas for waxing, and you really do notice the difference in terms of how you are treated and the thoroughness of the wax.
That being said...my biggest gripe with the place is hygiene-related...while it seems clean on the surface, I think it is really disgusting that they use the same metal stick thing on each client when they spread the wax on your skin...the idea that you are being given a bikini wax with the same metal piece as the person before is just really repulsive to me. This makes me think it might be worth it to pay the extra money and go somewhere else. Yuck!!
Great Brazilian – I recently went to J'aime day spa, and once again it was a great experience. Usually I go there for facials but this time I had one of their famous brazilian waxes, and it was defininetly a painless and great experience. Irene was extremely fast and knew exactly what she was doing with great skill. She was very nice and made sure to do a great job, efficiently. On top of everything else, its extremely cheap!!!
Adore it! – I have been a customer of Natasha's for over 5 years, since she was at Elite Spa. I couldnt be happier for her that she opened her own place and it is an amazing success. Of course i have recomeded her to all of my friends..........so much so that getting an appointment has become more difficult. I find that it is best to book your appointments in advance and the lovely adorable receptionist is always willing to help and try to accomodate as best as possible. I also recommend using Rachel if you cant get in with the amazing Natasha. Of course getting waxed is not the most enjoyable activity, but the staff at j'aime adore day spa always puts u at ease and makes it a painless experience. Congrats to Natasha and the staff!!! Thank you for everything.
Best Brazillian Wax in NYC and wonderful service! – I highly recommend Natasha for a Brazilian wax. And in regards to some of the nasty reviews, I must have had a completely different experience as I thought the receptionist was accomodating as well as sweet and professional. Then again, when I am running late, I tend to call in advance to give them a heads up even if I am just a few minutes late. They are running a business and that is the respectable thing to do. In doing so, they can let others go before me so when I come in, no one is off schedule and I am taken quickly. I have only had to wait once or twice for no longer than 10 minutes and for the great service we are receiving at such a great value, why complain! I
