25 West 19th St (Between 5th and 6th Ave) New York, NY
I came to visit New York last weekend and got recomendation by concierge of my hotel to visit Allure.\r
I was very happy with my massage and pedicure but the most impresive was my Facial by Ela. The way she works and cares about your skin!!! Now I need to fly to New York for Facials at list I can get their product on line.
I WENT TO ALLURE FOR THE FIRST IME TO HAVE MY HAIR COLORED AND A MANICURE. I HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT THE PLACE IS SO SERENE AND CALM. MY TECHNICIANS WERE BOTH GOOD AT THEIR CRAFT AND WERE MOST ACCOMODATING. COULDNT HAVE BEEN BETTER. THE SERVICE IS PAR EXCELLANCE. HIGHLY RECOMENDED
I was recommend to go to this place by a friend. Apparently the girl who cut my hair was new. Her name was Lena. I have difficult hair to work with but she did a great job. She really spent some time with me before starting and kinda took some time to feel out my style and then really concentrated on delivering a great end result. Most hair stylists just talk and talk and don't concentrate on what they are doing. Lena was nice , professonal and really thought about the best style for me from the begining of the haircut to the end. I will definitely go back to her. Thank you.
I had a brazilian bikini wax done by Katie and it was one of the most uneasy experiences ever. She had my legs positioned in the most uncomfortable way possible and by the end of the session I still had residual wax everywhere and everything was sticking to me. She didn't wear gloves and I am not even sure her hands were clean. Not only was it uncomfortable but extremely painful. When I got my bill for the waxing it was $20 more than I had expected. I also had a French manicure done by Daisy who was good at handing out compliments about her clients but did a extremely poor job on my manicure.
Cons: service, skill
A year and a half ago I happened upon this spa as I work in midtown. I love the services! \r
Pedicures with Danella are wonderful, facials with Ela and Marta are thorough and very relaxing, and my weekly blowouts with Alex are terrific and Myra gives a nice scalp massage when shampooing. Agnes at the front desk is very sweet and accommodating with scheduling and Lana makes sure you are totally satisfied with your services. \r
They are open on Sundays which is my favorite day for scheduling. The prices are very competitive with other midtown spas. I am very satisfied with this day spa.
Today I took my girl and her friends to Allure for sweet sixsteen 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 .
Travelling to NYC for business, I was in dire need of a haircut. After researching and reading everyone?s comments, I decided on Allure. Best choice that I made. The customer service was great. They took my coat, offered me a beverage/magazine, made sure I was taken care of. They cared, and genuinely cared, not like other salons that will treat you like another tally on their overall tally board. I had a haircut/color with Alex. I wasn?t planning on color at first, but decided to take the risk. Well, the risk paid off. My cut was the best cut I?ve ever had and the color complemented my complexion (which is hard to do, since my skin tone is very uneven). She didn?t ignore my suggestions, which other hairstylists have done in the past. Since my cut, I have been receiving complements left and right, in addition to questions on where they can find this place. It?s unfortunate that they?re all the way in NYC. I'd definitely go there again, when I get the chance!!!
Pros: Friendly staff, Stylists with expertise, Will work with your time schedule
Cons: Price (but apparently it's standard for NYC)
I have been going to Ella for few years. No matter who I go to in-beetween,I always come back to Ella to fix the mess others have done.I preffer more deep cleaning then pampering and she always makes the experience very personal. The Spa is beautiful,not large and very relaxing as soon as you walk in the doors. They also have products that I love, it keeps my skin very clean and beautifull .\r
Thanks, Ela .
Pros: personal,very clean,results
I live in the UK and got married in NY recently - i used city search to find a suitable hairdresser to put my hair up for my wedding day and i was not dissappointed. Upon arriving at the salon, i was greated warmly, like i was a long standing customer. The lady who put my hair up, was very friendly and professional and explained thoughout the lengthy process what she was attempting to achieve with my hair. The atmosphere in the salon is very calming and i would highly recommend this to anyone, esp if slightly afraid of trying something new. Thank you Allure for making me look so good on my special day!
Pros: friendly staff, nice atmosphere in the salon
I came into Allure Day spa for spa week on Oct 20 for a haircut, I believe with\r
Alexandra, though I am unsure exactly. This was the best haircut I have ever\r
had in my life. I am so pleased and will definitely be returning and have told\r
my friends and family about it.\r
The staff is so courteous - took my coat, brought me a magazine, offered me a\r
drink a few times AND I got a wonderful shampoo - really massaged my scalp. I\r
have gotten so many compliments on my hair and just wanted to send a note of\r
I have been to Allure Day spa for a couples massage and enjoyed that too.\r
If you want to look great see Alexandra. She is the best in highlighting , haircuts and relaxers.\r
See Alexandra if you want the best service ever!!!!!!!\r
I got married couple of weeks ago and she did my hair. Every body loved it. She was wonderful,I reconmend every body to see her.
Pros: every thing
I wanted a new look for my 33rd birthday and I got exactly what I asked for. Everyone at Allure is very friendly, approachable and professional. Joe knew exactly what color went with my skin tone and gave me the hair cut to match. I have never received so many compliments. I will definately go back and recommend it to everyone.
I came to Allure with 10 of my friends for a bithday party. What a great time we had!!\r
The girls from a front desk Lana and Anna helped us organize food and drinks and served it to everyone. We did not have to worry about anything just relax. The services were wright on time and superb !!! Everyone was so professional and nice. \r
Congratulations for a such great job!! We definitely coming back for another occasion.
Pros: Ambience, customer service.
I was introdused to Allure by Spa Week last year. And now I'm a regular client. The staff is extremly professional and very nice. I tryed their massages,facials with Ela and Marta and hair cut and color by Alexandra and always live Allure rejuvinated and relaxed.\r
It was my first time at Allure Day Spa,and I was very pleased with everything. My facial was wonderful. My esthetician Gabriela was professional and polite. She recomended some products for me to use at home and I'm very pleased with it and also the fact that I can order them on line makes my life easeir. \r
They have very nice facility and their prices seem competitive. Congratulation on your 10th aniversary. Next time I'll also try their hair salon services, they seems very profecional.
I had a massage on a Friday evening and was pleased overall. The only major issue really is that it is NOT the most relaxing atmosphere. I could hear a ton of noise and the people in the next room clear as day. That may or may not be an issue for some people...I'm not sure if I'll be back based on that alone. I may have just gone at an extremely busy time. The massage was good, though - I had Vincent and he was good. I wish he'd asked me what I wanted to focus on first but overall I can't complain!
It was my first time at Allure and I was very pleased with everything. My Facial was wonderful,I also had the best pedicure ever, but my massage was the gratest. After a deep tissue massage with Ola, I'm not only relaxed, but I also engoy long period of being pain free. \r
Wonerful and caring people, good prices,very clean.
This past Saturday we had a bachlorette party for my best friend at allure. Considering that I did not know what to do, Lana and the other girls at the desk took over. They booked us for facials, massages, manicures and pedicures. We bought lunch and even ordered champagne. The girls at the desk did it all, everything was served and appointments for services went like clockwork. From the brides' fabulous facial with Ela to the massages with the hunky Vincent and the wonderfully talented Ola. Not to forget about the manicures and pedicures that took our breathes away. They did it all, from the food to the spa services, it was all done to PERFECTION! Our day of beauty before our night on the town was the very best. Thanks to the staff at Allure, my best friends bachlorette partys day of beauty was something we will all cherish for a lifetime.
Pros: they strive for perfection, excellent customer service!!
My best friend found Allure for my bachlorette party. We had the Best Time and the Best services. From massages to manicures and make-up everithing was perfect and on time. We also brought some champagne and food and font desk girls were helping us to serve and organize everything. We did not have to think of anithing at all,just enjoy.Thanks Allure for my party!!!
Me and a girlfriend desided to have a day of beauty on this past hot and sticky Saturday afternoon. We had everything done, from color and haircut to manicures and pedicures, our package even included lunch (great food and wine!). Everything was so wonderful,the receptionists (warm and friendly), massage therapist, hairdressers (color and cut exceptional), and manicurist, even the shampoo girls (scalp massage, unbelieveable!) were,professional,warm,friendly and fun. What a wonderful way to spend a hot and sticky afternoon! We left looking great and feeling even better!! definitely, an AFTERNOON DELIGHT! We can't wait to go back!! \r
Pros: lunch included with package, fun/friendly staff
I was passing 55th street looking for the place to get relaxing pedicure and manicure. I found Allure Day Spa which I was very pleased. It is a very nice place to get away from loud New York's buzz. I had a delicious cup of tea with cookies during my reflexology pedicure. The pedicure was very relaxing and I was glad that it takes more than an hour to enjoy it. Everything was very welcomming from the moment I opened Allure door.
Pros: open late till 7: 30
Me and a friend took full advantage of spa week. We had full services and they were amazing! As soon as we arrived we were greeted with a warm and welcoming smile, taken to a changing room and began our day. The receptionists were bending over backwards to make us feel welcomed. We had massages by Vincent (after reading previous reviews we had to try him) ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! We then had facials, manicures and pedicures and finished with hair cuts, all of which were great. The whole staff was warm and friendly, even though they were very busy, we never felt ignored or forgotten. When leaving the blonde at the desk was just very attentive, and as concerned with our experience as she was with making us comfortable when we arrived. The whole experience on a scale of 1-10 was a 12!! We will be going back, for sure!!
Pros: RELAXING/ATTENTIVE, OPENED SUNDAYS , DELIGHTFUL STAFF
I went here for a massage during spa week and was VERY DISSAPOINTED!! First, I was not even given a robe (as in all other spas), the girl brought me to the room, told me to get naked and lie on the table. Then halfway through the massage, I realize that there is no wall dividing my room and the next room. It is only a divider dividing us and I had to listen the girl who was next to me go on and on....She would not stop talking and it was like we were in the same room - I could hear her so clearly!! VERY disturbing, I would like it to be quiet and relaxing when I get a massage!! I could not even enjoy my massage! When I went to complain about it after the massage, they did not seem to care!! I WON'T be going back!
I can never get a good massage, till now. I went to Allure for my usual facial with Ela, their owner and a magican for the skin. She recommended I get a massage with their new massage specialist Vincent. This was a real treat for my bad back. He was very professional and well trained, talented and a feast for the eyes as well, what a pleasure!! Hands that are unbeleavable, My back never felt so good, this massage was almost sinful. I can't wait to go back for another. Allure always puts their customers experience first, with a top of the line staff, I get all my services done there. From hair to nails, from facials to, now finally, a great massage, they do it all with such flare and talent. What a delightful way to end a stressful week. ultimate pleasure and wonderful experience!
Pros: staff, owners, fun, fabulous, OPEN SUNDAYS
Cons: none to speak of
I recently went in for the spa week facial and was very disappointed. First, the appointment began 25 minutes late and no one even bothered to apologize for the delay. Secondly, the facial was sub par. It consisted of the usual popping but then only ONE mask. I have had several facials throughout the city (many during spa week) and they usually have at least three different masks accompanied with some massage. Girls, if you are a regular facial person pass on this spa!
I had a day of beauty at Allure, which was unbelievable. My friend recommended this spa and everything was perfection. From my facial with Ela, which was charming, friendy and a magican at her craft, to a massage, which had to be HEAVEN SENT, which was done by Vincent, this hands belong in the hall of fame. I ended my day with pedicure, manicure and a haircut, this day was a pleasure. Everything was sheer perfection, from the facial on down. I will definitely be back. I want to thank the staff at Allure for making their customers experience their TOP PROIRITY!!
Pros: professional, relaxing, fun, amazing service
Cons: nothing what so ever!
I found my favorite massage spa at Allure. I've had few massages there with different massage therapists and always great job!! Thanks, Allure
Few days ago I visited Allure for spa week treatments that they started yerlier. I loved my facial,Marta spend extra time with me to make sure my skin looks perfect. I'm tryind clenser and toner that I bougt from her, so far so good. I also got hair cut with Justina that I love ! What a great idea to have a spa week.
I'm deffinatly coming back for my facial and my hair cut agan. Thanks Allure.
Pros: good prices, great services
I have been a customer for over a year. After getting a facial from Ela, who performs magic with every visit! I went to get my massage, it was done by their new massage therapist, Vincent, this master of massage is also a feast for the eyes! This was by far, the best massage I ever had. I need a strong hand when it comes to my back, The Allure owners, know what their customers want, skilled, well trained professionals, top of the line customer service, a pleasant enviorment, and when we can got it, a little eye candy. They have set the bar even higher for themselves. Vincent, is a great addition to the already unbelievable staff. I have had everything done, from my hair color and cut, manicures, pedicures, facial and massage, they do it all to perfection!! Thanks again for making your customers experience your top priority.
Pros: skill,professionalism, opened Sundays, Best massage ever!!
Cons: none what so ever
I spend a Day of Beauty at Allure on Sunday and I feel like a new person.Everyone was wonderfool from massage therapist Vincent to my hair stylist Alfredo. The place is very friendly and extremly professional. Now every one in my family will know what to give me for a holiday.
I found this place 2 years ago, and have loved it ever since. I get my hair cut and colored, manicures, pedicures, facials and massage. This place is a dream. Their services are second to none. I had very bad skin till I met Ela, she is a magician for the skin, performing magic. From the top of your head to the bottom of your feet, they all give 150 percent, they are true professionals. Lana at the desk, always greets you with a warm smile, to greet you and make you feel right at home. (once while waiting for my nails to dry, Lana came over, got on her knees and helped me put my shoes on, so I would not to ruin my manicure, who does this, with a smile no less, that's CUSTOMER SERVICE !!) Thank you all for 2 years of EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE!!
Pros: staff,friendly,fun, Skilled, relaxing, OPEN SUNDAYS!
Cons: having to leave
I came to Allure first time for facial.Ela gave me the best facial in my life and also teach me how to take care of my skin at home. I love the clenser and toner I got from her.
I'm realy glad I found them. I'd like to go back for a massage and my hair too.
Pros: skilled, professional
Cons: none , no, no
This place is not very professional. I went there for a day of beauty. WHAT A MISTAKE! It started with a rude blonde receptionist and got worse. The facial was a nightmare, it was painful and nothing like any facial I have ever had, when I complained the techinician was rude. Afterwards, she pushed products that I did not want to buy. Even while getting my hair blown out, the facialist kept walking by telling us to be quiet. I saw her though the miror, poking the hairdresser and telling him to shut me up. This place has a lot to learn about ""CUSTOMER SERVICE"". I my friend later told me the facialist I had and the receptionist were the owners, shame on you both, this is no way to treat your customers. The manicure, massage and blowdry were good though, till I was told to quiet.
Pros: manicure/pedicure, massage
Cons: facial, owners-rude/arrogant, customer service
I went to Allure for a spray tan after reading the reviews here, hoping I'd get a stellar treatment. I was well beyond dissapointed. After letting the technician know it was my first time, she failed to instruct me properly on what to expect. After I let her know that I didn't feel dry, she sent me home, telling me not to worry. My tan ended up all over my shirt instead of my body. I went back the next day to get it fixed, and was refused a different technician. The entire thing came off in two days and didn't last the week I was promised.
Cons: Customer Service, Quality of Treatment, Atmosphere
I have been going to Allure for a year now. I started going because of a gift certificate and never left! The staff is absolutely FABULOUS!! I get everything from facials to waxing, to massages manicures and pedicures and recently started getting my hair done as well both color and cut. they do everything to perfection!! The owners make sure they are staffed with the best in the business so their customers recieve services that are the best in the business. The two women that own the place go out of their way to make sure everything is done to PERFECTION! And if it is not, I know them both well enough to assure you the it will be taken care of ASAP. Allure is a LITTLE SLICE OF HEAVEN, in the middle of New York. Keep up the great work!!!
Pros: staff/skill, OPENED SUNDAYS!, friendly/fun
Cons: having to go home
I came with my husband for a couple massage first time to Allure. We had the best massages from Ola and Gabriela, also it was so nise and romantic with candeles and music.
Now I know what to buy for my husband and friends as a present.
Pros: clean, good
I've come to Allure for at list 6 years and mainly for waxing. The rooms are very good size,very clean,very professional and pain free. I usualy go to Kathy or Marina. All my friends come to Allure too and every one love it!!!
Pros: professional, clean, good price
I got a massage at this spa recommended by a friend but all I got was a rub. Even though I requested deeper and deeper got tired to telling what I wanted. All I needed was a little relief for a sore back since my therapist moved to Paris. Didn't even get that. I pay so much more for private massages but they are so worthed.
Cons: terrible service
The reviews are completely overrated. This place is nowhere near relaxing. You are led to a small tiny room where all the manicures & pedicures are done right outside. The technician left the room a few times with the door half open. Where's the PRIVACY?? She was rushing the whole time during the waxing and it was VERY PAINFUL. By far the worst I have ever experienced.
I read the preceeding review,and she was so right. I to, have the hardest time finding places to have hair and other things done on a sunday. I read the preceeding review and went there this past sunday. I had a wonderful time! I had my hair colored and cut, a facial and decided to have a manicure. The staff is wonderful! Their work is exceptional and the place is so calming and peaceful. I left there looking and feeling so wonderful. I highly recommend this spa for all your needs. I will absolutely be going back.This is, for sure, one of New Yorks best kept secrets, but not for long, I intend to tell everyone I know about this JEM OF A PLACE. TRULY A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE! My thanks to the two hairdressers, the facialist and the manicurist for such a fabulous day.
Pros: open sundays, freindly/fun, exceptional work
Cons: having to leave
I was looking for a place to get some things done on a Sunday. It was harder than I expected, then I found the Allure Spa. I had a GREAT TIME! I got my nails done and my hair cut and colored. They did an exceptional job. The cut and color was the best I have had to date, and the hairdressers were so much fun. We laughed and had a great time!! The manicure and pedicure were exceptional as well. What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. When most places are closed, this place is opened and provides a great atmosphere and a very friendly and fun staff. I will highly recommend this
spa to my friends and to others. I had a great time, the work and the experience was great. I now have a place` to get my hair and nails DONE ON A SUNDAY!!
Pros: Open Sundays, Great Cut and Color!, Friendly and Fun
My boss gave me a day of beauty for the holidays. I was not sure about this at first but went anyway. I am so glad I did, the place is wonderful. They were so friendly and really know their stuff. I had the works done facial, manicure, pedicure hair color and cut and ended my day with make-up ( which I don't usually wear. I had such a wonderful day, and left there looking like a million dollars. I can't say enough about the Allure Spa, I am going back with my husband for valentine's day, they have couples massages, how great is that. New Yorks best kept secret also has a secret, the staff, they are amazing, talented, friendly, and fun!! And you can bring your mate! You can't get better than that. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!!
Pros: STAFF, SKILL, LOCATION
Cons: HAVING TO LEAVE!
I Found this place by accident, I happened to be walking by and went in to fix a nail.

I highly recommend the Allure Spa for all your needs. I can't wait to go back, I booked a ""couples massage"" my boyfriend will love this place!! `

I have been a customer of the Allure Spa since they opened, 9 years ago. I have done it all! there is nothing I have not had done in this jem of a place. from facials to pedicures, from color to hair cuts, they are always the true professionals.
