Highly Recommend Paula's Facial and Waxing – Paula has great techniques and products. I had her waxless wax on my eyebrows and deep pore cleansing facial. They are very different from what I had before in the other places. Paula's service is itchy-free, bump-free, and redness-free. Just leave the smooth skin. Except her professional services, she is also a super nice person. When she was doing my deep-pore facial, she said now it is the torture part...but I didn't feel any pain at all! When she put mask on me, she jokes "my canvas", but she treat my face like a real piece of art! That's why I highly recommend Paula Zdovc Salon to everyone!!
Paula is Awesome! – I had my first appointment with Paula yesterday (9/9/09). Unfortunately, I was late. Paula waited and was extremely gracious. Just upon speaking to her to book my appointment, I felt like I was speaking to an old friend. Her personality is that of an angel. And her skills ... nothing short of amazing! She transformed my homemade plucked eyebrows, which looked hideous, and transformed them into supermodel worthy eyebrows! How lucky I am that in this big City, I found her. Most noteworthy to me is Paula's refreshing honesty. She will not attempt to sell you a service that you do not need. There is no need to spend double or triple the price at a pretentious salon where you might be treated like "just another client." Paula's salon is private, intimate and you will receive the highest level of service. As of yesterday, I am happy to say that I will be a loyal client.
Paula is a LIFESAVER!!! – I went to Paula for a leg wax and left finding her to be a lifesaver. Besides the fact that when you get a wax at Paula's salon it's unlike any other in the privacy, tender care and smoothest skin ever! Paula looked at my face and said "what are you doing?" I told her I had been going to another place and was told it would take about 6 years of electrolysis to get rid of the hair. Paula could not believe it! She sat me down and explained the process to me and how she works. We made an appt. and within a couple of months NOT YEARS I was hair free!! Paula helped me gain confidence again and not be embarrassed to have people look at my face. There is just smooth skin. I don't even think twice about going anywhere else for any hair removing. I have been a customer of Paula's for about 15 years now! I even brought my daughter in to see her for her first wax!
Hair, Beware! – As far as hair removal goes, I've tried it all, including several electrologists. Nothing seemed to be working, until I met Paula! She actually managed to rid me of most of the nasty chin hairs that had been plaguing me for far too long (we're still working on the really stubborn ones). She is incredibly friendly, professional, and really knows what she is doing. Her salon is clean, and the atmosphere is extremely relaxing. Although I'm a student with little money to spare, Paula is worth every penny!
Best Facial in NYC !! – I've been going to Paula for facials for 2 years.
I am someone who has a contract with Ford Model NY, so my input might cause a lot of traffic to Paula, which will be a problem for me, because I always call her the last minutes, and she always have managed to have very comfortable time set up for me.
But, I do want people to know how WONDERFUL she is, as a professional who's knowledge is high up there, but her fantastic technique is not the reson to go, (though that alone is more than good enough!) you experience her warm spiritual conduct!
It is a full healing session !!
And, my skin always looks YOUNGER !
BEST find- I live in Brooklyn, work UWS - and will never go to ANYONE else! – I simply do not believe that Paula's expertise can be explained in words - she is truly professional, insightful and caring as well as attentive to detail...with every one of her clients! I am 23 and had always plucked my eyebrows myself because I have VERY sensitive skin and was horrified of being one of those girls with burned/bright red marks for days. Not surprisingly, after 10 years of correcting one side or the other, I resigned to the fact that only a professional could nurse shape back into my over-plucked eyebrows. When I moved to New York (couple months ago) I saw threading everywhere and started looking up recommendations. Eyebrow shaping specialists? I stumbled on this listing in Citysearch, have never seen ALL reviews exclusively glowing, happy, faithful ? and pretty much joined to share the same feelings as ALL!! saw her qualifications (if you want the paperwork, she has more certifications and course completions than most entire salons) ? and am SO thankful, happy, LUCKY to have Paula. She is the kindest person, and I thought she was helping me through a hard time because I?m young and was having a hard day before my first visit; I have since seen Paula welcome and dedicate full care to clients- in the next visit, and the next, etc. - every race, age, reason for coming, type of epilation and work schedule is at home and in the best hands with Paula. Not a SINGLE hair ? and I mean that magnifying glass spares no visible hair from the tweezers ? eyebrows and bikini alike, she is serious about her work! I would never let my eyebrows get hairy and messy for anyone else, but I hate the idea of just plucking and having to delay my appointment!! :) I can't wait to get a facial!
--Just wanted to add, 2 days later -- The facial was wonderful, it's true! :) She was absolutely the professional perfectionist that she proves in her waxing and electrolysis work. She does wash her hands before and after every procedure, not just every person, good point.
best beauty secret in nyc – Paula is worth her weight in gold - I am so happy I found her. Her salon really is one of the best kept nyc beauty secrets . I tried lots of places when I moved to nyc including most of the suposedly 'best ' spas and nothing comes even remotely close to comparing to Paula Zdovc's lovely salon on the upper east. Firstly Paula is very good at what she does, indeed unusually good - for e.g. once you come here for waxing you won't go anywhere else - she is so meticulous that she gets every root and whips out her magnifying glass to make that mean all - so much so that together with her special wax and aftercare cream, the hairs really do get finer and eventually disappear - something that has never happened to me elsewhere. Also what I love it that you never feel like your in a spa factory being rushed in and out, on the contrary Paula really takes her time - and is a joy to chat to. And facials here by her colleague Elizabet are amazing - Elizabet also really takes her time and a facial can easily last 2 hours and has none of the formulaic style of other spas. Elizabet really gets to know your skin and works out what is best for you. Like Paula, Elizabet is unusually skilled in what she does - not only are her facials super relaxing but she's amazing with extractions and ensures all blemishes are removed without leaving any marks - a true and rare skill. She also seems to make my pores totally shrink. My skin is so clear and bright after a treatment and stays so not just for a few days but for a few weeks - I love it as I don't need foundation anymore! I now live right downtown but would not be without Paula for anything, I will always travel up to Madison Avenue to see her and Elizabet. I've now been going to Paula's salon for 3 years and it's so good to feel I have somewhere that takes care of all my beauty needs - if you try this salon, I promise you'll be as devoted as I am!
Professional yet inexpensive waxing – I have gone to Paula for bikini waxes over a year now. She is very professional, quick, and inexpensive (about $30). If you have sensitive skin, and are prone to rashes, ingrown hairs, etc., (like me), you will find these annoying things are minimized. Furthermore, Paula's salon is small but clean and comfortable. She is also very accomodating for those with busy schedules.
best waxing.. – the products are organic. it's a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere. sm business, great experience always.
Best Wax Job Ever – This was the best money I've ever spent on a bikini wax (only $30!!). Paula does an amazing job - she's thorough (both sides are even!), sanitary (washed her hands before AND after the waxing, which you don't always see), and professional. She left no strays, and I don't kid you when I say her waxing didn't hurt as much as others'.
If you see anyone for your bikini wax, see Paula.
