My hair is long with no chemicals other than color. My first visit I was charged $40 because of the length of my hair, my 2nd visit I was charged $50 (my visits were a week apart). After the 2nd wash my scalp was still itching. I washed my hair a week later and it started coming out in strands and clumps. I've NEVER had that issue before. I have a feeling they did not wash the shampoo and or condition all out of my scalp. My daughter went with me to my 2nd visit; she had blisters on her scalp from where the dryer burned her scalp. I know the dryer is hot and its the price we must all endure to get hair straight but to have blisters form within 24 hours is unacceptable. To top it off patrons are charged $1.50 per transaction if you pay with a credit card. What a rip off. Never again! If I could give less than a star rating I would have.
I'm not a picky person in general, but I am a tough sell on a spa. Allure Day Spa is truly wonderful. It is tranquil but not pretentious, and everyone from front desk to the therapists to the spa director were down to earth and a pleasure. I got a massage from Gaby and facial from Marta both were amazing. They were talented, well-trained, and really listened to what I was looking for. I went with a friend and we relaxed in the lounge afterwards, really enjoyed the atmosphere. I left feeling like a whole new person.
I'm not into spas. Not into manicures. Not into fancy haircuts. So, I was forced into a Valentine's Day couples massage. It wasn't half bad. I'm not crazy about going to these places as you can tell, but seriously, I'll do this again, and it won't take my wife to drag me along. My massage kept me going all week. Now I see why they recommend it once a week. Work was so much easier!
I went for a mani-pedi and shampoo and blow-dry. The women at the spa greeted me warmly and took very good care of me. The manicurist Lily was gentle and took her time. The results were beautiful and lasted. Fenny styled my hair better than I've ever had it done! She really knows how to work the brush and drier. I went to a wedding that evening and received so many compliments on my hair, people told me I looked glamorous and younger. I plan on returning next time I'm in NYC!
I've been an Allure customer for some time now, usually for waxings. The last few years I've been having my hair cut and colored at Allure. I was lucky enough to get an appointment with Fenny...and I've been coming back time and time again. Not only is she talented and experienced at cutting hair....she also colors my hair beautifully...and she makes me feel like family when I'm there.
i received a gift from my husband for the mommy to be pregnancy package which included a 1hr pregnancy massage, facial spa mani and pedi, and lunch. Might i say i had such a great time. the prenatal massage was the best i've ever had.. i had went to couple other places before to get massages because being pregnant is no joke and they just weren't that because at other places maybe because they were just scared to hurt me or just never really give a prego woman a massage before.. anyways at allure they new exactly what they were doing. everyone who took care of me were just so humble and down to earth you just new that they were going to do the best they could for you.. nowadays in new york that's hard to find.. other places just want your money and usually rush you out to get to the next client but not allure.. thank god for such a place..i also want thank my husband for introducing me to such a place thanks jason my love not only i'm i happy but so is our son for such a relaxing day the facial was great although my face was a bit red but hey thats what facials do to your face...the products i also brought helped out my face a lot because i used to break out a lot and now i don't so anyone looking for good face products allure day spa is the place to go. my mani and pedi also was amazing what else can i say.. i have nothing bad to say about the place after i give birth my husband and i will be going back to enjoy the couple package.. people all i have to say is that you are missing out in such a great place... stop by and give it a visit!!!\r
Just few blocks from Bloomingdales in the heart of manhattan a salon that is quiet and comfortable. Professional, knowledgeable that is Valery. In this salon there is no waiting, it is all about you and what you want. Valery will do exactly what you ask for Highlights, Color, Haircut, new style. The only hair salon I know that can color hair with natural ingredents no harsh chemicals to ruin your hair. She will take care of whatever you need, listens carefully to what you want and then makes sure you are happy with the results. This is like going to a retreat.She takes the time she needs to do your hair perfectly. They also have full Spa , I'll try massage and facial next time, they look very profecional and friendly. \r
I went to Allure Day Spa looking for a total make over.
I got that and a whole bunch more. Valerie really understood what I was looking for I highly recommend her she is a true master stylest.
My husband and I have been going to Fenny for years to get our hair cut as well as my color.
Fenny is fantastic! and a great person to say the least.
I always feel well pampered and tended to when I am at Allure Day Spa and most importantly comfortable and relaxed. I leave feeling Great and refreshed!
Do not go here for makeup at all! the lady that did mine ignored repeated requests to exfoliate my skin first, and also did not listen when I asked her to tone down the eyeliner. ended in disaster and I just went home and redid it myself. She hadn't even put longlasting lipstick on even though I had requested it. None of the other girls makeup lasted throughout the day either. the mother of the groom's makeup eneded way overdone even though she had asked for simple and natural looking. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!
I went here on my wedding day with 3 other girls, while the staff were friendly, all our hair came out within the hour! The didn't even last getting back to the hotel.
I felt really rushed throughout the whole thing as well. I would not come back here.
Amazing. Suzanne knew exactly what to do and I left feeling like a million bucks!\r
For years i had really sensitive skin and rosacea and i was really conservative about where i went to get facials, as treatment often seemed to make it worse. i heard from some friends about this spa and decided to give it a try.\r
I was told by other places that i couldn't use alpha-hydroxy acids because of my skin, but Martha helped me underatand my skin condition and gave me a lot of information about product ingredients. I now know what to avoid and what to look for in products. I listened to her advice and tried a glycolyc facial and changed my home regimen as well.I couldn't believe the improvement in only a month-even, clear, and wonderful skin tone, with the redness disappearing as well. I learned that i don't have to live with my rosacea as long as i have proper skin care. thanks Martha !!
i came here with a good friend for some needed rest and pampering on a recent friday morning. we were both excited for a restful and fun day together. As i arrived at 12:15 pm for a 12:30 pm one hour massage followed by a manicure/pedicure i waited for about 7 minutes before Lana came to the front desk. \r
i was given a bath robe which was pretty worn though it did smell clean and told to change in the only one changing room they had, leaving my friend to wait until i finished changing.\r
the massage was just OK. not a bad one but certanily not a memorable one.\r
manicure and pedicure was OK as well. the only thing i really enjoyed was the mimosas being offered which i availed myself to it several times.\r
i found that once we were both done with the services, i felt that at the point they just wanted us to make room for the other customers. it felt rushed as if the services are now done and now you can leave.\r
overall, the experience was just OK. considering there are so many spas in nyc, i think i will pass on returning to Allure spa and give another spa a try.
just be very short.A+ sevice
I just wanted to say a huge thank to the ladies at Allure - The hair and make up that was created on the day of my wedding was AMAZING! I really cannot thank you all enough for what was done. We all left feeling a million $$ which is the biggest compliment i think i can give. \r
Thank you again for arranging breakfast for us - I was so nervous, I couldn't eat for most of the day!\r
I have attached a couple of pictures to your email - The day will go down as one of the best days of our lives - So I cannot thank you all enough for playing a big part in making us feel (and look) like celebrities!!\r
Please pass on a personal thank you to Valerie, and to everyone at Allure - THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!\r
LOVE Allure Day Spa. \r
I have been coming here for facials for 5++ years and I have NO complaints!\r
Marta is AMAZING!\r
She spends lots of time trying to remove every last blackhead & impurity in your face.\r
You will be red for 2-3 days but it is well worth it in the end.People who reviewed before me have complaints about leaving with red skin.The reason your skin is so red is because of all the extractions they do at Allure (the redder you are the more blackheads you had).\r
If you want to keep your blackheads than go elsewhere.\r
I normally go to a dermatologists office for my facials, but decided to try this place when I couldn't get an appointment with my regular place. BIG MISTAKE. This was hands down the most painful spa treatment I've ever experienced in my life, and I have a very high tolerance for pain. I'm writing this review the following morning and my face is swollen and I'm STILL in pain.
On top of it, once we were done the technician pushed a ton of products on me, and for some reason I caved in and bought them. Well, I'll be returning those products and never spending any money there ever again.
i'm getting married in about a week and i decided to have my bachelorette party at allure day spa....it was the most awesome experience of my life single life.. i was able to bring in my own little treats for my girls which they set up in our own little section.. they served us champagne and chocolates took us pictures and were very attentive to our needs...this place is so relaxing...all you have to do is show up.. you really don't have to do a thing, they do it all for you.... i was thinking on how to separate the tips for my services trying to remember everyone's name...but they already had tip envelopes ready all i had to do was give them the money to sort them out. which was great because after we were done we had to leave to continue our day... you could imagine having a bachelorette party with all the girls you really don't have time to think...allure day spa is really a place where you go relax and get pampered...everyone there makes sure your experience at allure something that you wont forget ...i know i will always remember and will be going back on a regular bases thank you allure \r
Pros: anything you can think of allure brings to life
Cons: nothing goes wrong
This isn't my usual salon, but I decided to give it a try and I'm glad I did! I went in for color and a cut and I found the experience easy and when I left, my hair looked gorgeous. First, they were sooo accomodating when I was running late. Second, they were very professional. The stylist actually listened to me and cut my hair based on the shape of my face. I didn't feel rushed and he gave me his undivided attention.
I do enjoy my hair cut, the hair style is light and airy. I would recommend this salon!
Pros: Friendly, professional
we were in town for my daughters 8th bday to see wicked, found allure day spa online, and we had her hair done! Alexandra was awesome!! she was quick and did an amazing job!! i highly recommend allure and Alexandra to anyone!!! thanks again allure and Alexandra!
the clark family
A co-worker recommended Allure Day Spa as the top of its class for airbrushing. I didn't want to leave anything to chance, because I had a bad experience using the spray booths before. But this was way different. The tech customized the color to match my skin type and the time she took to do that- well, it really showed. The color was stunning; same color I turn when I tan under the sun.Allure itself is very nice, very spa-like and sophisticated. And the customer service was very pleasant and informative. My co-worker was impressed when she saw me come in - now she's headed back to Allure herself. Great find!\r
Pros: best airbrushing
Fenny did cut and color . Looked lovely and I was very pleased with the quality of service for the price i paid . I saved $60 compared to my previous salon, which was getting a little pricey. Color came out great. They got me in quickly and it is a nice place. Saturday afternoons can be busy with Bridal parties, but they seem to handle OK. Ask for 10% off as a first time client
Pros: very clean
I went to allure day spa on thursday and had a great experience there. The service was impeccable!!! Everything was scheduled perfectly and the staff are so attentive. I got a manicure,pedicure,massage, waxing and haircut and have not one complaint. I'm so happy that I found a great, friendly place in nyc and I will definately be back soon.
I visited Allure Day Spa last week because I had been looking for a new salon where I can get my waxing and facials done, after a falling out with my regular facialist...I found a coupon on their website for summer specials for a massage and facial so I decided to check it out...When I got there I was amazed at how nice the place was! The decor was done tastefully and elegantly...I was immediately greated by a nice, blonde lady at the front desk...I was curious about what other services the offered because I noticed there were hair stations, and manicure stations ...They pretty much do it all! ...Anyways, my massage and facial were awesome! I've never felt so pampered....I definitely want to go back and try some of their other services... \r
Pros: Awesome massage and facial !
Cons: Can't think of any
I have now had several haircuts at Allure and its my favorite place to go. Charming people, a great head massage/shampoo and fantastic haircuts. I would recommend this place to all my friends.
Pros: Excellent Haircut, charming staff, great head massage
I had a full day spa this Saturday and it was a wonderful experience. I had the best facial with Ela. Now I know what a facial is!!!! I cant begin to tell you how everyone the attended me was so nice and pleasant. from my manicure to the lady that did my makeup. unfortunately I can't remember all their names. but thank you all you were all great. I will come back and refer this place to my friends.\r
Excellent day spa nice people nice environment! LOVE IT......
Pros: The people are friendly
This is for Ela who gave me a facial just after Christmas. She worked very hard on my rosacea and promised that I would see a huge difference. She was RIGHT my skin is looking quite good for my age and most of the redness is gone. I have been using the products I bought as directed.\r
Thanks for everything hope to visit you again.
I read about Allure on Citysearch! I am so glad that I got an appointment. I saw Alex for my color and also got free hair cut that was offered on line! My gorgeous colored hair has never looked so good and the perfect cut is what I got!! Now I know why people write reviews! \r
I walked into the spa and was greeted with a huge smile and very nice and accomodating receptionist. I went in for my massage and the facility was immaculate - my therapist was so good! I was very relaxed and had an amazing massage. I went in for 60 minutes and definitely got every minute's worth! My therapist really spent the time to work out all of my many knots and kinks. I would definitely recommend this spa to anyone who wants a massage that is worth the time and money. I would go back again in a heartbeat - by far, this is the best spa for a massage in all of Manhattan!!\r
I recently had my bridal party at Allure and let me say that we had a wonderful wonderful time. The staff was so accommodating and the services were great. We were nine girls and we all had similar packages, which consisted of massages, facials and manicures, all were spectacular. The services began right on schedule, the therapists were great. My friend is getting married soon and we are definitely having her bridal party here as well.\r
I'm a girl who loves deep tissue massages! The stronger the better. Usually when I have massages only male therapists are able to break through my ridiculously tight back muscles. Well, I finally found a woman who is able to do just that! Crytal...you were awesome! I am so glad that I listened to my coworker who recomend Allure.Is truly the definition of this place! I say to all...just go and find out for yourself!\r
my coworker recommended to go to this spa to get massage and facial by Ela. I took couple friends with me: We had facial by Ela and Marta which was very different from other places. They really focus on your skin and recommend products depending on your skin type. This facial and products i had is already working perfectly for me and my friends. They have their own line : cleanser and fruit toner is amazing! After facials we had 60 min massage with : Susan, Crystal and Nadia. All of us were very happy and relaxed after. After we finished our day with manicures by: Viorica, Marina and Margarita. They really take time to clean and massage hands. The manicure takes about 30 min which is amazing. Overall the service was amazing from the minute you walk into the spa the front desk girls are very welcomming to offer tea or coffee before you start your treatments. I highly recommend to go their and relax from busy new york lifestyle.
I go to Allure Day Spa on the regular basis. This is the best place to get facial and wax services.The estheticians are very nice and knowledgeable.Ela is the best. She helped me out with my acne. Thank you very much for improving my complection.
I came to Allure with 5 of my friends for a bithday party. What a great time we had!! The girls from the front desk Lana and Agnes helped us organize food and drinks and served it to everyone. We did not have to worry about anything but just to relax. The services were right on time and superb !!! Everyone was so professional and nice. Thank you! We are definitely coming back for another occasion!
This is a nice, local place, easy to make an appointment last moment. Staff is friendly and helpful. I've tried several different types of massages and different therapists , including couples massage with my boy friend, and have always had the best experience. I've referred a many people who have also returned. .
I attended a bachelorette party back in September, what as waste of money. We booked 30 minute messages, pepperment mani/pedi, champagne and chocolates, for $119 per person. Would have been a good deal if this place was not so tacky. I had to change in a closet, and sit in the entrance of the place in our robes, with everyone walking around. The champagne and chocolates, were the worst, talk about cheap. Lets just call it what it was, cheap, and I mean cheap champagne, and herseys chocolates, my lord, how very tacky. When we went to get our mani/pedi's, there was not even enough space for the 5 of us. We had to take turns, what a waste of time. Staff was chatting in different languages, which is rude, and to eachother, which is even worse. The massages were good, even thought the rooms were very cold. \r
I would never attend or book a party at this place again. With the reviews we all read on here, and the location, we expected something special. It was nothing of the sort, unless you think cheap champagne, cheap chocolates, and a classless place is something special. If it sounds to go to be true, watch out, it probably is.
A warm thanks to the staff, and to Marta, Viorica and Susanna for having made my experience and skin treatments so wonderful. All of my treatments have been exceptional. From waxing,massages to my deep pore cleansing skin treatments. I now have clean, clear FABULOUS skin. I love this place!\r
I have been a satisfied client of Allure Day Spa for quite some time now. I have noticed some changes over the past few months. The new front desk person is clearly not up to speed on customer service. She's extremely slow, and can't seem to multitask which is essential in that role. I had to get my own coat after waiting 5 minutes while she chatted up one of the stylists. She also recommended the new facialist Luba after I tried to book an appt with Ela who was on vacation. She told me Luba was servicing all of Ela's clients. This person was the complete opposite of Ela. I told her I essentially wanted a deep clean with extractions. She steamed for 1 minute and started applying masks. I had to continually remind her I was there for extractions. Finally, I pointed out a few whiteheads and she attempted to clean but with the pores closed due lack of steam I went home with scabbed areas and clogged pores. I did not realize how bad it was until the next day. I just book ed appt another facial (at another spa) to have my pores cleaned. This was a total waste of money. I can apply masks at home. Why pay over $150.00 for this? I think the facialist is more familiar with much older skin that does not require deep cleaning (she said she has 30 years of experience). Overall, surprisingly disappointing.
Pros: Gentle, skilled waxers
Cons: Below average facialist
I took my daughter and her friends to Allure for a birthday party. What a great place,what a great experience and a good time we had!! Everyone is so professional and extremly nice. The services are superb!! We deffinatly w'll be back , just need to find another occasion !! \r
I live in the neighborhood and have gone to several salons here. This place is, hands down, the best. First, when I call to make an appointment, the receptionist was friendly and eager to help match me with the best stylist . When I arrive'd, I was greeted by smiles, great decor, and a complimentary refreshment. The stylist ,Alexandra listened to what I want, and offered helpful suggestions.. I got the most beautifull highlights and free hair cut,that was offered on their website. Great prices, great service, great atmosphere.
we booked the Girlfriend's Spa Package for a bachelorette party afternoon. it was $119/person, came with a 30 min massage, peppermint pedicure and manicure, champagne and chocolates. seemed like a good deal. alas, it wasn't so spa-like after all. rather than having a large area with changing room and lockers, bathrooms and showers, they have one small dressing closet for guests to take turns changing in and out of their robes in (your clothes are taken to an unlocked closet at the main entrance). instead of a quiet spa-like room in back for people to hang out in while waiting for their services, we had to sit around in the lobby area in our robes, drinking the sparkling wine and eating the hershey's chocolates that were provided (they have bowls of candy everywhere). apparently we laughed too loudly at one point and the staff shushed us. once we got to the back area for our services, we realized there were not enough real chairs for manicures and pedicures for all 5 of us, so we took turns having them done. i'd also bring your own nail polish if you like anything unusual, the selection is pretty slim. the massages were the highlight and everyone enjoyed them. but they took ages to give us our bills. seemed like a busy, popular place and their basic services are decent, but i'd never again confuse it with an actual spa.
Pros: nice massage, most staff were nice
Cons: not a day spa atmosphere
Me and my friends had a bachlorette party at Allure last Saturday and it was wonderful. The experience was relaxing and fun. My girlfriends and I all gathered for some well deserved massages and the best manicures and pedicures, all while we sipped on champagne and had chocolates! it was defiantley a great start to our weekend!
I went to Allure last week and got a body scrub by Kelly and it was so good. That was my first time getting one and I loved it. I think I will be in there at least once a month and my friend got a facial there and she said she was in heaven.
I went here 1 time...I got a facial and loved the place. It's very peaceful (good music) and the staff was cordial. The facial was actually very refreshing, I have had bad experiences in the past and this one went well. I just had my service last week, but will make sure to return to Allure in the future.
Pros: great facial, nice atmosphere, peaceful music, relaxing
I had no idea what to expect when I made my appointment. I had looked into some other spa's on the internet but all of them seemed a little to costly and commercial. When I walked in to the spa it was intimate and personal. The atmosphere from the steirs down was relaxing and inviting. The service that I received was very good. The women were very polite, personable, kind, and made sure that I was comfortable. I would go there again and would recommend it for anyone who wants quality service for a reasonable price. \r
We had a bachelorette spa day for 8 girls here on Saturday. Lana and the staff were great at scheduling things so that we all spent as much time as possible in the same room -- they advised us where to order great food to be delivered, and then set it all up for us. They even provided the glasses for the champagne, and moved all of the food to whatever room we were in. They were sweet, accomodating, helpful and all around wonderful. Highly recommended!
That was my first time visited Allure Day Spa for a Body Massage. Let me just say, I'm impressed. I was first greeted by a welcoming staff of receptionists. In the process of waiting for my session to start. Friendly staff served me herbal tea & cookies. The massage itself was amazing. The therapist was incredible caring and seemed to know exactly what I needed. I came in nervous and stressed because of work and yet, I left feeling refreshed and relaxed. I highly recommend anyone to this spa. You won't regret it.\r
I went to Allure Day Spa last month with a co-worker who has been going to the spa for a couple of years now.I loved everything about the spa it was very cozy, quiet and the people who worked there were very nice. They really make you feel relaxed and always at your service. i went home feeling great it was one of the best massages and facials i've had. i recommend Allure Day Spa to anyone who wants the best spa treatment new york has to offer.\r
