I'm a light skinned person with dark hair who has had laser hair removal on multiple areas of my body, at multiple locations across the city so I know it's not because I'm a difficult candidate or something!!

I bought a 6 session package to do a Brazilian Bikini laser as well as remove a few dark hairs that grow in on my chin. After the 6th session I saw very little difference except that the hair is a little finer in some areas but between my legs and all the way at the back it's still growing just as much as it ever did and all 5 hairs on my chin were STILL very much THERE. Are you kidding me? Most laser professionals agree 6-8 sessions is enough to clear an area if you are not a bad candidate so what gives?

I purchased 3 additional sessions since they offered them at a pretty good discount and I assumed 3 more could only make the result better right? WRONG. Am now at 8 sessions completed out of 9 purchased and all the hair is exactly where it was before. I have one session left and will redeem it just out of principal but I don't expect to see any improvement over my current poor result.

I have no experience with their other services but for laser at least STAY AWAY. Find a place with a better piece of equipment or technicians who know to use the machine correctly since something is obviously being done wrong here.

I got a Brazilian bikini wax here and it was one of the most unpleasant experiences ever!! I have been getting this service for over 7 years and never had a disgusting experience like this. The woman didn't know what she was doing and was extremely un professional and unsanitary. I found it odd when I was told to disrobe completely from the waist down but not provided any hygienic panties (illegal). She starts my service, and her phone rings, not only did she answer her cell phone but decides to have a conversation with section 8 while she is waxing my vagina! I asked her two times if she could please get off the pnoe, and she ignored me and carried on her phone call. She finally gets off the phone and continues without changing he gloves (also illegal). It is clear from my experience that she was not trained properly because she was not doing it in the appropriate way which caused it to be much more painful. For a Brazilian bikini wax it is industry standard to use muslin strips, she used paper strips instead, this wouldn't have been that serious of an issue, but she repeatedly used the same paper strip. Instead of every time she applied wax using a new strip (like she is supposed to) she used the same dirty paper strip covered in hair and wax over and over. She also used the same stick and repeatedly dipped the same shtick she used on me in the wax, which is dangerous and disgusting( very illegal). By NY state law the person performing the wax must use a new stick every time when applying more wax to avoid the spread of disease! Every single time I have ever gotten a Brazilian bikini wax the stray hairs are removed by tweezers to give the desired pout come. After all Brazilian wax= no hair at all! She refused to do this saying it was illegal, but didn't seem to be bothered much by doing al the other illegal things I have stated. Instead of using tweezers (as is normal) she was repeatedly applying hot wax over and over to get rid of some stray hairs which cause painful bleeding rips on my labia. When I told her that my vagina was bleeding she got angry and defensive....so much for customer service ;(

DO NOT GO HERE!!!

I tried this salon because of a great promotion going that week. The trim and blow-out by Danielle was fairly decent..(I was surprised actually, based on my first impression of the salon..). Would go back for a trim, but don't have enough CONFIDENCE for highlights and color...;-)

I have just one question for you. Should you be bleeding after a lip wax. Well, that answer is YES, especially when the waxist (Shamenda) pulls the strip from your lip without holding your lip down. The flesh that connects my top lip to my gums was torn open and my mouth filled with blood. Now, I can barely eat or drink anything without my eyes watering. Forget kissing, hurts too much. I also had a brazilian, which i do monthly elsewhere but tried this place based on a recommendation. The brazilian was pretty awful. I can't speak for every waxist at this spa. But beware!

I got a spa manicure and a spa pedicure last month when pretty city was having their $31 special to raise money for breast cancer so maybe they skimped on the "spa" part because of the sale. I don't know. In any case, the technician, while she was friendly, filed my fingernails down too low (I told her I prefer short nails but she clearly took it too far, my fingertips were stinging during and after). The moisturizing mask made my feet itch uncontrollably or maybe the itching was caused by the plastic bags they wrap your feet in before inserting them into the electric heated booties. Either way, it was itchy and uncomfortable and I would have removed it myself if I wasn't afraid of accidentally electrocuting myself in the process by dipping a wire into the whirlpool.Also, the massage portion, if you can call it that, was very brief.
At least the polish on my toenails lasted, but I requested clear for my fingernails and it was peeling by the next day.

Traditionally a spa is committed to providing a calming environment, and beauty, health and relaxation are not compromised. Confidence Spa is not a traditional establishment; it??s a nail salon with a few bland rooms and inexperienced (and probably unlicensed) waxing technicians. Last Friday, I made an appointment for a Brazilian bikini wax at Confidence Spa. I had called a day in advance to ask if anyone other than Lisa would be available for this service. My friends had not enjoyed their experience with Lisa, and I did not want risk having a bad incident just because I was desperate to get rid of my forest. When I arrived 5 minutes late to my appointment, I was informed that Lisa was the only one available. A bit hesitant, I finally gave in and followed Lisa to a room. After I had removed my pants and underwear, Lisa starts inspecting my area. She claimed I let the hair grow too much and would have to trim it. I??ve been waxed many times before by an excellent professional, and I??ve never had my hair trimmed before waxing. Lisa pulled out a pair of dingy scissors from a drawer and started snipping away. I asked if the scissors were sanitized, but never got a clear answer. She pulled out a wooden stick and started mixing the wax, applying huge amounts of lava hot wax to the side of my inner thighs. Placing the paper on the wax, she pulled aggressively. She placed the paper she had just used to remove my hair on my leg while she applied more wax in the same area. She then took the same piece of paper and placed it on the wax and pulled again and again. I asked her why she was using the same paper over again, and she claimed it was normal procedure. She must have used the same piece of paper on my private area over 10 times. I also noticed that instead of discarding the used paper or placing the paper on her work station, she would place the paper next to or on my legs. She applied baby powder, which I didn??t mind until I realized that she was not done removing all my hair. After over ten minutes, she asked me to lift my leg so she could work on my backside. I asked her to give me a minute because I was in so much pain. I lifted my legs, and she applied the wax directly on my butt hole. Yes- you read correctly. At first I thought it was a mistake, but she placed a paper (which was covered in hair from previous uses) in the area. When she was finally done, she followed me to the reception area to try to sell me spa products, but I ignored her and paid the service without leaving a tip. I waddled across the street to Duane Reade and purchased Charmin wet wipes and Neosporin. When I was able to find a bathroom, I removed my pants and realized my panties were stuck to the side of my thigh, and the inside of my underwear was covered in baby powder and pieces of wax. It was disgusting to say the least, and I was in pain for a few days. I had made the appointment using Life Booker, and supposedly users get 50% off services at participating spas. That means that my $20 wax is originally $40, which is difficult to believe considering that the same strip of paper was used repeatedly to remove my hair, and Lisa is obviously not an expert. I wouldn??t even think of getting a manicure and pedicure there, since hygiene does not seem to be a priority at Confidence Spa. Let me tell you , sometimes the cheep prices doesn't always work, and Confidence Spa has cheep prices, but you don't want to go there, because you know the rule YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR !!!!!!!!!.

I went here on the recommendation of a friend for a Brazilian wax. I have super sensitive skin and am very prone to ingrowns. Olga was great and super duper fast. The wax was very gentle on my skin and I had very little irritation when the hair started to grow back. Highly recommended Olga!

After reading tons of reviews about Olga and her abilities I booked an appointment. She was a little full of herself.....so confident that it was on the border of snobby. Her waxing skills are good but nothing special like everyone raves. In my opinion, Alex in Dyanna's salon is way better and their prices are the same.

I just had my first appointment with Danielle and absolutely love the results! She was very patient and took the time to talk with me about my color and cut before even touching my hair. I am always nervous about trying a new colorist for blonde highlights but Danielle did a fantastic job adding bright highlights and a few lowlights to keep it looking natural. The cut is fantastic and exactly what I wanted. The prices at this salon are incredibly reasonable and I will definitely be going back! Thanks Danielle!

I am always nervous about trying a new colorist for blonde highlights but Danielle did a fantastic job adding bright highlights and a few lowlights to keep it looking natural. The cut is fantastic and exactly what I wanted. The prices at this salon are incredibly reasonable and I will definitely be going back! Thanks Danielle!

one of the waxing ladies butchered my eyebrows when i came in for a waxing. DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE

Pros: clean and friendly

Cons: they cannot do eyebrows at all

.

I had my brazilian wax done on 04.06 09. (For those wondering why it took me so long to write a review...ahem- I have kids that I'm raising on my own because my husband is stationed in Washington. : )
I was getting ready for my husband to return from his 3 month deployment. Since my time was limited, I had to do everything that day because that was the only day my in-laws could watch my 3 kids. Amazingly, OlgaB was great in squeezing me in that morning. She was very sweet and nice to the point she made me cry tears of joy! Her attention to detail was impeccable.
The last time I came here was last year- can you tell I'm a mom, lol- so of course I was excited to return. Olga was so nice and asked me about my family and how me being a Navy Veteran and having a Chief in the Navy is-- stuff most people just brush off or don't really care. Especially because I'm young-27.
She was nice to even wax my eyebrows! She is professional and friendly at the same time.
I wish they were closer to NJ because the only time I get to go is when the kids and my inlaws schedule allow- which seems to be once a year lol. I HIGHLY recommend OLGA and salon to everyone! She is done and over with Brazilians in a flash- which if you ever had one you know the faster it's over the better! Plus, her technique is virtually pain free. ( I have a high tolerance for pain- 3 kids remember?)
LADIES- ESPECIALLY MOMS- go treat yourself to the best at queen OLGA you will be so happy you did- especially with OLGA.....trust me---I am!
P.S. The people who write bad reviews more than likely are haters (competitors) of Confidence beauty salon- go for yourself to see why I was willing to drive 2 hours just to get waxed!
Amazing, quick and, dare i say, virtually painless! Anyone needing a brazlian should definitley go to the OLGA She is the best! I highly recommend her!

Pros: Curtious, Quick, Clean, Comfortable waiting area, Affordable

Cons: Too far from me, lol. I live in NJ which is 2 hrs drive.

My wax experience was terrible. The attendant (Olga) didn't listen to my requests and actually made me feel bad. 24 hours hours later, I'm still in severe pain and have wax EVERYWHERE (even after a shower). I've been waxing for 5 years and recently having moved, I'm looking for a new salon to go to. I have to believe that these other reviews have been written by the salon or friends - all the writing styles are exactly the same and keep saying the same thing. I will definitely not go back to Olga.

On the flip side - my haircut experience with Danielle was great. She listened and was incredibly sweet. Also in search for a new hair stylist, it took me a while to figure out how to explain exactly what I wanted, but she was patient and worked with me. Hair cut isn't exactly what I wanted, but I attribute that to me not being able to explain it well either. I'll be going back to her for sure. I have to give this a one star because my wax experience was so terrible. If I posted a second review, I would give my hair cut experience 4-stars.

Salon in general was bright and clean.

For waxing services, you simply cannot find any better than Olga B. Ive been a client of hers for over a half year now and Ive consistently been thrilled with the results of all of my waxing with her: Brazilian, legs, arms, underarms, lip, and eyebrows! Olga is certainly one of NY best kept secrets in the beauty biz, but I am quite sure that won't last long. One of the things I like most about Olga is that she is extremely passionate about what she does and will always strive to do a perfect job for you. Her Brazilian Bikini Wax is expertly done -- thorough, fast, and professional. The salon provides a lovely atmosphere that makes you feel at ease, as does Olga lightheartedness. I especially recommend Confidence salon to anyone getting a Brazilian for the first time, or to those who are shy. Olga the BEST!

I can't even begin to say how happy I am that I found OlgaB. She is the best hands down! I have been going to her for over a five month now, and every time I am thrilled with the result. She is the absolute master of the Brazilian wax, and she does it so fast, you won't even have time to feel the pain. Her skincare tips are amazing and if you listen to her advice, you'll never have bikini woes again. She always has a positive attitude and welcomes you with friendly conversation. The Confidence beauty salon is amazing, The products on the shelf are carefully selected and of the highest quality. Her staff is very helpful and accommodating, doing their best to get you the appointment you want. If you live in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, you should be going to Olga B!!!

I have been to many salons looking for a good, quick and somewhat painfree bikini wax....but was unsatisfied until I was referred to Olga Queen! She was very personable and made me feel so comfortable that I almost forgot why I was there! I would highly recommend Olga to anyone that is looking for the PERFECT bikini wax! A friend said Olga B was the best and she is. i love the new location (hadnt been to any other) and i am now a Olga B fan. she's fun and puts you right at ease then it's over quick and easy. don't wait to get waxed like i did! call Olga and have a laugh! Please do yourself a favor and book an appointment with Olga B!. You will not be disappointed. Simply, she is terrific.Now, I swear by her and won't see anyone else. She's quick, easy, and worth every penny. If you need a waxing, why would you go to anyone else??? I love this girl.!!!

After a horrifying brazilian experience Kornellia Day Spa, I went to Confidence beauty salon based on the reviews here. Olga,Olga,Olga she is AWESOME! She was very warm and comforting and the brazilian was actually not that painful! I also got my eyebrows done by her and was getting compliments for a week after! I went to her a few more times, but because I live kind of far, I tried finding someone else in my area. I went to Lisa based on a friend's recommendation. The lady there was....ok. For me, Olga B is still the reigning queen of brazilans. She is quick, very thorough, and somehow makes a brazilian practically painless. Despite the distance, I will continue going to see her. Olga B is fabulous. She makes the brazilian waxes fly by with great conversation and makes you feel at ease. I recommend her to anyone from the experienced "wax-ee" to the intimated first timer!!!

I've been coming to Confidence since November 2008 with Lisa as my Brazililan Wax consultant and she has been very careful with me. I was nervous at first and she talked me through the process taking her time and helping me to relax. It's now 6 months later and all is wonderful with her! Thank you Lisa for your delicate care. Plus my podiatrist loves the work she does on my feet, he says she's wonderful!!! See you in a few weeks!!! Michele G.

I've returned to Danielle several times now. She has helped me try out several different hair styles that work on me. She also has done some highlights and glazes on my hair which I absolutely love! Unfortunately, I will be out of state for two months over this summer, but I will definitely be back first thing when I return. She has a steady client for life!

This place is mismanaged and run horribly. From the bright orange room to the rushed and pushy staff, the experience at this spa/salon was the exact opposite of what one would expect from their time at a spa. Almost no time was spent at the pedicure/manicure that I received. I'm used to a foot and hand massage lasting more than 30 seconds... usually at least until the lotion has been rubbed in. She only massaged for a couple seconds and then wiped off the excess lotion. I don't fault her because otherwise she did a good job and deserved the tip I gave her, although it should be noted that the main reason ANYone gets a pedicure is to feel pampered and relaxed, which is not what happened for me.

I'm reading the reviews and I suspect that most of these have been created by the salon itself or they are hiring someone to do it. Too many repeat similar phrases and it's really inconsistent from what I know a regular review to sound like. That's a terrible shame and lacks integrity.

Customer beware. There's loads of better salons out there that don't need to fake reviews.

My hair was a disaster since i colored it black 6 months ago. The color grew out on top, stayed black in the middle, and faded to orange on the bottom. It looked awful when i walked in for my apt with David. He made an even tone color closer to my natural base and put amazing highlights. It is such a transformation and i am soo thankful. I get compliments throughout the day. Plus the staff are very friendly and professional. From now on this is my salon to go to. You would not regret an apointment here.

Pros: fixed the disaster

Cons: cant think of any

**This salon was not only one of the slowest places I have ever gotten serviced, but also a total rip-off and unsanitary. The staff was unpleasant and was more into socializing with each other than doing their work! It took forever to get my nails and wax done, and my manicure was chipping within 2 days? total rip off.

I would not recommended to anyone!

Danielle is awesome. She picks the right color and does amazing hair cuts.
After going to the same hairdresser for 5 years, and being unhappy with results, I went to Danielle. She was very patient with me and spent a lot of time picking out the right color with me and making sure that I am happy with the results. Thank you so much!
