One of my girlfriends took me here one day and it was a great experience. Everyone there was very helpful and made sure that we were always taken care of. I definitely want to go back and would surely recommend this place to anyone looking for some relaxation.

I have been going there for about three years and I must say that I really like it for the following reasons:

-Prices are very reasonable
-Service is very good
-Staff is extremely nice and will try to accommodate you
- if you become a regular they treat you extremely well (ie they will give you points that will allow you to get free services) I have never had so many freebies from any salon anywhere

I stopped by recently for a gel manicure - I'm a regular at Haven their sister spa and heard that Eve is now doing gels.

It's only been a few days but I'm really happy with them. I've never had gels before so I'm not sure what to expect (I would have liked a little more info from my manicurist on this). So far they still look like I just had them polished - I love that glossy look.

The staff was great - I really like the look of their nail area. I'll definitely be back.

I went to have waxing done a few days ago... i was highly recommended to have it done with MAYA... if there was any other way to say this, she was just amazing...

she was very thorough, very clean and professional... a sweet woman with years of experience. She doesn't like to waste any time... your in and your out, you wouldnt even know when to scream if it was painful, and the best part is she is THOROUGH...

everyone must see MAYA... the one true waxer in NY. thats a GUARANTEE!!!

I went to Eve Salon's new location on West 8th street yesterday for a French bikini wax. I had a botched wax in December at another place so I had let things grow a bit. I got a same day appointment with Elizabeth. She did a great job. I was in and out of there in under 15 minutes, and this was the most pain-free wax ever. No itching after, either. What pros! I'm never going anywhere else.

Hi Everyone! My name is Anne and I am the manager at Eve Salon. We have moved to a new location and are having a little bit of trouble getting CitySearch to update our address.

If you have any questions or would like to book an appointment please give us a call today! We are so happy to be in our brand new, and spacious, home! We look forward to seeing you soon!

I've been going to this place for a few months now and the service i receive depends on the person i have an appt with. I highly recommend Elizabeth. She knows what she is doing, can wax straight lines, and doesn't cause too much pain. Avoid Maya. She gave me a bikini wax and couldn't make it even for the life of her. She told me to come in the next time with a triangle pre-drawn with a marker. Also, she didn't seem to know where to put her hand while waxing me....not comfortable at all.

I use to do waxing but my first experience with Eve and Amy this time was the best!!!!!! Amy is multitalented, can do perfect threading as well.
Amy is the a very professional and have a great personality. She did awsome non-painful brazilian waxing for me.
Nice atmosphere, relaxing music, clean place, democratic prices and skillful Amy-everything that happy client needs. I am the client of Amy for life now. Please make an appointment with her only if you need to do waxing or threading.

This place was recommended by a friend and I decided to give it a try and I am glad I did. The front desk was so accommodating when I was running 20 minutes late for my appointment because of the horrible rain that started, I also got towels to dry myself off when I walked in soaking wet!!! My waxer took me right away and the wax wasn't as painful as I thought it would be and the best part was that it took her less than 15 minutes to do my brazilian. I will certainly come back in 6 weeks!

I have had about 5 brazilian waxes and two of them at eve, i was dissapointed by my wax the first time, but i decided to go back and give them another shot. The second was worst than the first. I do not put myself thru that much pain for it to grow back in 10 days. these should last 6-8 weeks but because Maya does not pull most of the hair out by the root, half of it grows back and half of it wont grow back for 6-8 weeks. A brazilian at eve is very expensive and i think it is ridiculous that maya breaks the hair instead of pulling it out, i could get the same result from shaving. I have decided to never go back there, except maybe to show them how stupid my wax looks when half of it is growing back after 10 DAYS! There is also no privacy, the rooms are very very small and Maya will just come in the room while you are exposed.. no paper dress, no curtain, just you in a very small room, very exposed.

I've been going to Eve for bikini waxes for 2 years. I went based on a friend's recommendation of Yola (who recently left). My first few experiences were pretty good. One time the woman doing my wax kept "evening" her lines, taking more and more hair. The end result was having much more hair removed than I had asked for. All in all the service is pretty good... short wait time, fast wax and generally pleasing results. My biggest complaint in the past was how long I was kept on hold (EVERY TIME I CALLED) when trying to make an appointment. I called today and got a voicemail message saying they were on the other line and would call back. I left my name & phone number. An hour later, I called another salon, made an appointment for my lunch hour, paid HALF what Eve charges for a bikini wax, and was on my way. Several hours later, the staff from Eve has still not returned my call. The waxes are pretty good, although they are pretty pricey. The manicures are GREAT-- afordable and durable, mine lasted over a week! If you're ok with the price and you can get through to make an appointment, I've always been happy with the results. To me it's not worth it.

The worst spa/experience ever. I had made a 15 min appointment for electrolysis with this lady(I think there is only one who does this service). She decided that she only wanted to work on me for 10min. because that's what I was booked in for(crap). The front desk staff were not that pleasant either but they made some story to cover up for her it seemed. The place was very busy at 6pm. They seem to do very well, and seem to have regulars that go in there. But they deffinnetly are not very friendly nor open to new-comers.
I will for sure not be going back there, nor recommending the place. The Soho spa that I go to send me to Eve for the elecrolysis, I will deffinetly give them a buzz, and let them know how bad my experience was. Good Luck!!

I went to Eve today to get my first brazilian wax, and was scared out of my mind. If you're in my position, (or one of the many positions you'll be in during your wax),and nervous, don't be. Eve was great...I had Xena, and I really recommend her (my friend uses her consistently as well)--she is professional, really sweet, and quite gentle. The place is small, but go during the mid afternoon 1-3 o clock (make an appointment first) and you'll just walk right in. I was actually ten minutes early, but she was ready for me anyways, so I didn't have to wait.
It was definitely NOT as bad as people have said it is--and Eve is the place to go! also opt for the sensitive skin wax if you are doing it the first time, pay the extra ten dollars, i think it was worth it...

Went to Eve after reading many raves on city search.......had a great first appointment with Maya and had my first Brazilian. She was fast but not too rushed and thorough. Went back for a second appointment and was terribly dissapopointed .Service was hurried and when I got home I found random patches of hair ......to top it off the hair grew back within 2 weeks! I decided to give them another chance since my first experience had been good.Third time not quie as bad a the 2nd but again hair growing back in less that 2 weeks! Now Ive been to many salons and that is just unnacceptable. It means that the esthetician is breaking the hair not removing it from the root ,they are too rushed to take the time to do it properly. Never again! Id rather be hair free for 4-6 weeks and pay a bit more! INCONSISTENT

I actually went here after reading the rave reviews about Maya...and they were right. She is fast, but gentle and made light of the rather embarassing positions you are put in. There is a sensitive wax that makes the pain tolerable. The cost is also incredible. No extras - just one price that covers it all!

i've been getting brazillians for years, and found Maya at Eve last summer...she's amazing! not only are you in and out in 11 minutes..yes i timed...she's thorough and takes the effort to get to know your personal concerns and you as a person. its silly to say that brazilians are completely painless..hot wax is being yanked off your crotch! but maya is incredibly gentle and doesn't leave you sore afterwards. i love how small this place is! so down to earth and homely. i'll pass on the frou frou places that are usually disappointments. manicures are great as well...mine always last ATLEAST ten days.

I love this place even though its small. THe bikini wax is quick and cheap and you can always get an appoinment. If you arent shy about being in a tiny room with your legs in the air , then this is the place for you. The location is perfect- close to subway, shops and restaurants- and you can be in a out in 15 minutes!

I've been going to Eve for ten years, exclusively seeing Yola, who did my eyebrow and bikini waxing. She always did an amazing job and I just found out she left Eve to bravely start her own business. I've always found Eve to be a great place but I mainly went there because of Yola's service and technique. She's friendly and nobody shapes eyebrows the way she does.

If you're located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn or you're a client of Yola's check out her new salon, Audrey, at 342 Bedford Ave at South 3rd street. She's doing waxing, facials, massages, mani/pedicures. It's pretty easy to get there on the L train.

I went to Eve to have a "sphinx" wax - I hadn't done it in about 2 years so I was very nervous. However, when I walked out of there I was wondering why I had gone so long! Yasmine was absolutely wonderful. It wasn't painless of course, but it was so much less painful than I anticipated! She was very quick, but more thorough than any wax I've had before. Plus, she was very pleasant, conversational and her breathing techniques really worked. It definitely isn't a large, relaxing spa, but when I go for a wax I am not really looking to stick around... Give it a try!

Eve definitely delivered the best eyebrow wax that I've ever had however the price was a little steep. Granted, I did ask for the special wax for people with sensitive skin which ended up being a little bit extra. My skin was a quite red for sometime however the actually waxing process was relatively pain free. I would highly recommend Eve if you're looking for perfection and no mistakes and you don't mind paying a little bit extra!

I went to Eve a few weeks ago, for an emergency appointment since my regular esthetician was booked and it was close to my apt. What a mistake! I scheduled an appointment randomly with Yola, but they had entered the appointment incorrectly in the computer and accused me of being late. Aside from the cramped room, Yola was a speed waxer. She definitely removed hair, but completely burned my sensitive skin in the process. Everytime she pulled off the wax, she practically punched me in the stomach. It took my skin 3 days to recover. Eve may be slightly cheaper than other waxing places, but beware of discounts (and those nail places with a back room, too)! I think that proper treatment of my skin is worth the extra 5-10 bucks. Look up Claudia at Cloud 9 in the New Yorker hotel. She is the best!

I moved to NY a year ago and ever since I've been looking for an place to get my waxes done that's comparable to home (Bay Area: if you're ever move there look up Suzi Miller (esthetician) at Shri in Los Gatos - she's the BEST!). After searching online, I decided to try Eve. Zina was my esthetician and she did a good job; fast & thorough. They honor their appointments so I didn't have to wait long (less than 10 mins). After my wax, I wasn't sore, actually I was very comfortable.

The reason why I don't think it's good for first timers is b/c of the atmosphere. As others have mentioned, the place is very cramped (the wating room, the waxing room, everything!). The waxing room was only big enough for the waxing bed-thingy and a little table for the wax. As you are lying there the only thing you're looking at are the fluorescent lights on the standard ceiling. The place is SO small that when the esthetician opens the door to come in and out people on the outside can accidentally see you (with no pants on).

FYI: there are 2 types of waxes that they used "honey" and "gourmet" - gourmet is $5 more.
Brazilian doesn't mean everything $40-45. Sphinx means everything $50-55.

Is this cheap for NYC? Most places that I've enquired cost about the same. But compared to California - it is cheap.

The place is not really as down-home as some of these reviews make it sound; it's not the fanciest spa in the world, but it's pretty nice. I had a manicure there about eight days ago and the polish literally never chipped-- and I am sort of careless and clumsy, so it's not as if I was trying really hard to keep it intact. I had to remove the polish last night because my nails had grown a little too much and were starting to show above the cuticle, but honestly I have never had such a durable manicure-- not by a long shot. Maybe it's the polish they use or maybe it's some combination of careful cleaning of the nail and good base coat or something, but as far as I am concerned it was barely shy of miraculous. Also, you get a little bag with your files and orange stick and such, and if you bring it back they'll knock a dollar off your next manicure and $2 off the pedicure.

The place is not really as down-home as some of these reviews make it sound; it's not the fanciest spa in the world, but it's pretty nice. I had a manicure there about eight days ago and the polish literally never chipped-- and I am sort of careless and clumsy, so it's not as if I was trying really hard to keep it intact. I had to remove the polish last night because my nails had grown a little too much and were starting to show above the cuticle, but honestly I have never had such a durable manicure-- not by a long shot. Maybe it's the polish they use or maybe it's some combination of careful cleaning of the nail and good base coat or something, but as far as I am concerned it was barely shy of miraculous. Also, you get a little bag with your files and orange stick and such, and if you bring it back they'll knock a dollar off your next manicure and $2 off the pedicure.

Pros: Incredibly long-lasting manicure, very clean

Cons: A little cramped space, but not claustrophobic or anything

I've lived in many countries over the past few years and have had my fare share of brazilian waxing adventures - fortunately, my experiences at Eve have not proved to be anything other than painless and often, enjoyable. I heard that the guy at the front can be a bit difficult, but in my experiences, he's been nothing but pleasant and kind - even recommending who he thinks are the most gentle of all the waxers (Justyna and Zina). As for the waxing rooms themselves, I'll agree that they're nothing special and lack any charm (with a mere table and hanger for your coat.) But hey, they're fast, effficient and cheap - what more can you ask for from a brazilian wax. If you want the spa experience, go elsewhere. If you want to get the job done - go to Eve.

Eve is too small of a space for all the people they try and squeeze in at the bench and the manicurist tables. TO TOP IT OFF...one of the employees brings their bratty kid which makes customers feel anything but relaxed! When I went, the child was playing around like any 6 year old would want to, BUT he proceeded to put his dirty tennis shoe in my footbath! Gross! Did the staff say anything to me...NO. I had to request the water to be changed. I have decided not to go back because the child is ALWAYS there!
I'm wondering if there is a law against babysitting in a spa salon?
Do not go if you want to relax!

I've been going to Eve for about ten years now. It's the only place where I don't dread getting a brazilian wax - the ladies are so quick and it is NOT very painful. I've tried more expensive places and they took longer and hurt a lot more. The waiting room is tiny (I often wait outside), but the price and the excellent bikini waxes make it worth it. They are always willing to try and squeeze you in if there aren't any appointments available, too.

Cons: tiny, cramped waiting area - a very minor quibble that really doesn't bother me

I went for a couple of times for a brazilian and everytime is great! I like it because it is quick. Who wants to be in those weird positions for too long! I never been to another place so I can't really compare...well, I don't want too many people seeing and touching my private area anyway. However, I have very positive experience every time I go. Tips: It is going to be pain as all waxing is. Go for sensitive wax for brazilian...take a painkiller beforehand will ease some discomfort.

I usually go to Eve for my cheap Brazilians but I was severely burned this last time. I thought it was the usual pain of waxing but the next day - I realized I had a terrible burn on my rear! It's been a week and I see and feel no improvement. My guess is the wax heater was not properly maintained at the right temperature and the waxer did not wait before application.

I have been to EVE on three different occassions and I've used 3 completely different waxers, and they were all wonderful! Most recently I had Elizabeth who was quick and really friendly. The front desk staff is really funny and down to earth! I have had bad experiences before with really rude salons, and that attitude just isn't found here. Even with the abundance of models and the celebrity I saw, they treated us all the same. I love this place! Go in the middle of the day, and don't deal with the rush hour

I am 100% Satisfied!!! One of the waxers (Jola) made my eyebrows look beautiful. She knew exactly what I was looking for. Jola used the less painful wax and talked me through the process. I am positively sure that she is the best in the Eve Salon. I strongly recommand Jola for any waxing!

Eve is my favorite! I had the luck of having Yasmine for my first appointment and I have gone to her ever since. Now we all no there is no such thing as a pain free brazilian but Yasmine has given me as close to pain free as you can get. She is thorough, attentive, expeditious, and quite friendly. Eve is in a quite small space its true but who cares everyone is friendly and the service is GREAT!

I recommend Eve to all my friends and get great reviews from everyone. In the beginning I went to a different waxing person every time and always had a great experience, but I really recommend going to Yasmin as I find her to be my favorite. She makes you really comfortable because she's so personable and I never even have to do the sensitive wax because she works quickly and carefully. She tells me to do this relaxing breathing which really helps and she always does a fantastic job. I definitely recommend Eve and Yasmin to any first time bikini/brazilian waxers. The space is small but nice and everyone is so friendly and they do such a great job, it's a great value. Also, it's on a cute corner in the West Village. This is definitely a favorite find in the city.

I went here to get my first Brazilian wax and needless to say I was more than a little nervous (being a complete bikini line waxing virgin). My friend reccomended that I go to her waxer, Maya, and I am so glad I did!! She put me completely at ease and even though it hurt (obviously no waxing is ever pain-free), she talks you through it the entire time (15 minutes) and completely relaxes you. The pain is completely manageable and Maya waxed so quickly that I didn't have time to dwell on it. Make sure though that you ask for their sensitive skin wax...especiailly if you have never waxed before. As for the salon itself, although the waiting area was rather small, the receptionist could not have been friendlier and I was taken right away. All in all...a great place.

As a waxing "virgin," I entered Eve with a certain degree of trepidation- my fears were quickly dispelled when I met Maya, my fabulous waxer who came highly recommended. She was so friendly, and as soon as I told her this was my first time, she talked me through and explained everything she was doing, even throwing in some encouragement ("Good girl! Almost done! It's hell, I know, but we're almost there!"). The entire process took far less time than I expected (less than 15 minutes), yet she was extremely thorough. Besides the pain (yes, it hurts!!), I couldn't have had a more pleasant experience.
Yes, the waiting area is tiny (a bench that's taken up mostly by stacks of magazines), but everyone who works there is so friendly that it more than makes up for the lack of luxurious ambiance.

I've been to Eve a few times for waxing and want to warn people that the service can be very uneven. If you find a technician you like, stick with her - I recommend Yola.

There are a few simple things that waxers should do: press your flesh so that it is more taut - this helps remove hair more effectively so they don't have to go over an area several times; press your skin after ripping off a strip to reduce pain; tell you when it's going to hurt more/ to breathe; tweeze strays; try to clean off any residue; and make sure that the wax is as cool as possible. If your waxer doesn't do these things, I would look elsewhere.

If you are a first time waxer, or just squemish, you have found the right spot. Maya came highly recommended to me and I see why. She's does a great job, and she's superfast, and she has evening appointments. Definitely worth it.

I found Eve after reading great reviews on Citysearch and everything positive people said was true. For the last two years, I have gone to Eve (Maya) for Brazilians and recommended her to all of my friends (who all return very pleased). I have not tried the other services, but Maya does a fantastic job for a great price!

Ignore the negative reviews you read here. Eve's has the most pleasant staff and provides excellent service.

My favorites are Maya (for eyebrow waxing - she's and artist), Jane for mani / pedi.

And, when you're done, Magnolia is right across the street - best cupcakes in the world.

After reading some good reviews on Citysearch I was very excited for my first appointment. Unfortunately I was totally DISSAPOINTED! The girl who did my manicure, was very rude to me. She talked to me like she was interviewing me for a job (not a very fun one). She turned out to be an I-know-it-all-better and told me things about my nails which were just not true. But this was still not enough. So she left without finishing the job properly! I had to ask the receptionist for her to come back. It appeared she was helping another client. When she came back she finished it on the cheap, uninterested and with a very long face. NOT THE WAY TO EARN THE TIP! Luckily she had a colleague who did care and helped me in the end.

I saw the dececnt review on NYcitysearch and decided to go since it was listed under CHEAP budgets. Boy was I in for a big surprise. First of all - when I called to inquire how much their bikini wax was - they said their "Gourmet" bikini wax $40. The place is super tiny - the room itself did not look clean at all. WORST OF ALL - they charged me an extra $15 because the lady did some special "Sphinx" wax that I didn't even ask for. I was so shocked and they said they could do nothing about it. Plus - it seems that the wax they used wasn't as effectivce as teh other places I've gone to - the hair is growing back really fast. If you want cheap - go to Elite.

I have been to Eve twice, both times for a brazilian wax. CHRISTIE, who only works on sundays, is fantastic: she's upbeat, thorough and quick (10-15 min). Hey, if she only took 5 min, she wouldn't be thorough!!
Keep in mind that this place is tiny and fills up quick so you must make a reservation, but they'll accomodate you for the next day. In fact it is so small that the waiting area comprises of a bench so close to the door that your knees almost touch it... But you're not there for the waiting area, so who cares?!

Got the full treatment here once: mani, pedi & brazillian. It came up to only 85 with tip! Excellent value, but the woman who did mani/pedi was awful. They ran late and asked if I was "still interested in french mani/pedi". I said yes, manicurist looked at her watch and sighed. She smudged my french manicure right after she did last nail and kissed her teeth/rolled eyes when I held it out to be redone! Also, I had to rest my feet on a rolling cart for pedi. Everytime I relaxed my leg, the cart rolled away, so I had to hold my legs stiff the whole time. They need pedicure chairs; it was NOT a relaxing pedi. Even the smallest budget places I've been to have them. Bottom line is: go for the waxes; best Brazillian around! Not clean rooms, but they get the job done and you're in/out.

I used to live near this place and was a faithful customer. Now that I have moved uptown, I have tried everywhere else, including J. Sisters and now I have stopped trying new places. This place gives the best Brazilian bikini wax because it is cheaper than other places, they have the blue wax for sensitive skin (and it works) and they are fast and nearly painless. Plus, unlike J. Sisters and the other places I have been to, they wear gloves. In response to another comment placed here, it may seem dirty, but the fact that they use gloves is the only convincing I need to think otherwise!!

I wanted to update my review because I am now 7 1/2 months pregnant and I have to recommend Yasmine! She is awesome regardless if you are pregnant, but if you are pregnant and want to still get your waxing done, ask for Yasmine because she knows how to do it and to make it comfortable. I still love this place.

For a 10-min waxing fix (legs and brazilian) make sure to ask for Maya. She is absolutely fab! Quick, close to pain free and very good results.
