I loved it ... at first – The first time I went to Boom Boom I loved it. The girl did a good job and I was extremely happy. When I returned recently the lighting was so bad, and after I left the place I realized that a less than perfect job was done. One brow was much thicker than the other, strays, etc. When I immediately when back and told the receptionist of this she just looked at me with a puzzled face. I showed her the slip ups and instead of a professional reply she just said "Well I don't see it", blah, blah, blah. The original girl who did it had left so someone else was to fix it. As I waited and waited, I noticed someone who came in after me was taken ahead of me. When I inquired, I was told she had an appointment. However, her appointment was scehduled for 5:00pm and it was only 4:15. The receptionist just tried and tried to rationalize this lapse in customer service without so much as a "I'm Sorry". This just shows such a lack of experience in good customerr relations. I have one more certificate from this place and then plan on never returning. That's how much this situation annoyed me.
Do Not Go Here... – I had a terrible experience at this place. It's my second and last time. It started out badly with the receptionist asking me directly in front of an older man what I was there for. I gave my name and appt time but she wanted to know my service. I told her a wax and she insisted I tell her what kind. I'm a shy person and didnt think it was acceptable to ask me abt my brazilian wax in front of a stranger. Then I waited for abt 20mins when another woman asked me why I was there in front of the same man?! Let's be clear. I had an appt in their system so they could look it up or show some discretion. Also they were running late. no big deal usually but the amount of attitude I got when I asked them how much longer I would be waiting was ridiculous. I will never go back here and with all the choices in NYC, I suggest you do not either....
Best Waxing Services in NY – The staff was friendly and real and the wax was as close to painless as possible - great results, too. I'll go back every month.
They also have the cutest dog I've seen in awhile. Say hi to Baby. He's the wee pupkin reclining in a giant birdcage by the desk.
Great Waxing! – I had never had a Brazilian and was a little scared but its such a fun and friendly atmosphere that I felt so comfortable as soon as I walked in the door. I would recommend Boom Boom to all of my friends.
Terrible waxing services – I booked a waxing appointment with Boom Boom after reading positive reviews here and hearing about the 50% off beauty week special. It was by far the worst waxing experience I have had.
The waxing was MESSY and rough, very rough. No wonder they make you sign an agreement that they will not be responsible for anything that goes amiss. So if they rip my skin off due to their rough act I am responsible for it. Also, they use the soft wax, which is useless because they are so rough. It still hurts as much if not more. And no a "sorry" each time is not enough. Finally, I came back home with some patches of hair all over which I had to shave. In addition, the wax was on my clothes. I have had much better service at cheaper places.
Yes they are friendly but I am not there to make friends, I am there for a service which if not performed well, there is no point to being just friendly. I will never go back there. Go at your own risk.
From First-Timer to Going to Brazil at Boom Boom for Life! – I was always scared to get the infamous "Brazilian". I absolutely HATE to shave but I LOVE being smooth as silk. Something had to change. I did a little research and found Boom Boom Beauty Bar. They specialize in waxing so I thought...what better place to go? They even have the cutest names for their waxes like the Skinny Dipper and the Bermuda Triangle. I made the appointment but started panicking as it got closer. I was on the verge of cancelling when I called the day before and got the owner, Malynda, on the phone. She was so sweet and understood all my concerns as a first-timer. She gave me some great suggestions such as Advil and hour before and assured me that they would take very good care of me. When I arrived, the salon was so fun and inviting that it immediately made me feel more at ease. Disco-balls hang from the ceiling and fuchsia surrounds you from the chair covers to the accents. First I had my eyebrows tweezed by hand. They looked more amazing that any waxer or threader had every done. Dejha has such a steady hand and she?s perfectionist. Then it was finally time to head to Brazil. Dejha helped me through everything. She made conversation to distract me but also had me breathe right when the tough parts had to be done. She was SO QUICK! I couldn?t believe it took all of 30 minutes. The imported Italian wax is amazing. It does not hurt ? NO LIE! I don?t even take Advil anymore and I have no redness or soreness afterwards. The wax is pretty too ? colors like purple and pink with a pearlized tint. The combination of wax and waxer is the reason the Brazilian LASTS. I go half as often as some of my friends (and I am Sicilian too so it grows fast). Boom Boom makes it a fun experience. You don?t even feel shy to be fully exposed. I consider Dejha and Malynda my gal pals now. I?m a lifer now and have already been back 2 more times. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Loved love love love love! – I found this place on Lifebooker because they were offering 50% off of eyebrow shaping. What an amazing deal!!! The ladies at Boom Boom were incredible. Deija was so sweet. She really listened to what I wanted and I left looking like a million bucks-- without spending it =) . Thanks Lifebooker and thanks boom boom. will definitely be coming back =)
Awesome Waxing at Amazing Prices – I live right down the street from Boom Boom and it has become one of my favorite neighborhood spots. Dejaih does an absolutely FLAWLESS Brazilian and was basically painless. Malynda does fabulous brows and I take all of my friends to her. She has really given me guidance on growing out my brows and they are looking fuller and fuller every time I go. My boyfriend even gets his brows done there! They also have brow and lip specials for $20 dollars which is unbeatable.
Great Brows! – My roommate started going to Boom Boom in preparation for her upcoming wedding, and I LOVED what a difference her eyebrows made in her overall look. I've been hearing a lot lately that eyebrows are important, but it was really cool to see the transformation and process. And that's what it was, a process. Unlike the generic places around, Boom Boomers will literally go through the process of growing and reshaping with you, advising you where to alow the hairs to grow in, etc. I had DJ (although I think it's spelled Dejaih) and she was FANTASTIC! It was such a difference at first it took me offguard, but she took some time and walked me through what she did and why and it made SUCH a difference.
They also carry Bare Escentuals which I LOVE and will now only buy from them. It's just SUCH a great little shop that immediately makes you feel welcomed when you walk in the door. I highly recommend this place to anyone!
Great Waxing – Fantastic Fantastic. Malynda is by far the best eyebrow shaper/fixer there is to the Manhattan side. I walked in with thin eyebrows and now they're perfect. The best thing about her is that Malynda gives you guidelines to perfect your brow. Totally a great find. Couldn't be more happier.!!
