Don't do here, they ruined my eyebrows. It take forever to grow them back. I guess you get what you pay for.

I went in there for a clean up and she ruined the shape of the brow. Don't go there!

Okay - first thing's first - if you have "problem" brows or have issues getting the right shape, this is NOT the place for you. This place is for people who like their shape, don't have issues with pain, and just need a clean up on the shape they already have every few weeks. I got my eyebrows done at one of those fancy places that are written up in all the magazines and it was no better than this. I got the exact same result. Why not go to Perfect Shape, where it costs me $7 and 5 minutes?? Just be realistic about the kind of brows you have before you come here, it may be cheap and convenient, and all your friends might be telling you how great threading is, but if you need a new shape or are growing in sparse brows, they don't have the time here to do it "right" for you. This is an in-and-out type place where you sit down and they just GO - this isn't an "okay let's discuss your needs and I'll take 25 minutes just doing your eyebrows" place. Also, I think neither waxing nor threading hurt, but I've had people cry to me after I tell them to go here, telling me that the threading is worse than childbirth - it's all a matter of personal pain threshold.

Pros: Quick, inexpensive, convenient

Cons: Very in-and-out, can't really ask for a specific shape.

I've been going to Perfect Shape for a year at least. During that time, I think I've had every woman in the salon thread my eyebrows and I've had good and...not so pleasant experiences but NIRA is an absolute godsend.

Because of incessant plucking, my eyebrows were much too thin and didn't suit the shape of my face at all. Nira is beyond meticulous, always asks me what I want and is very very *very* careful.

I've had strangers stop me on the street and ask me where I get my eyebrows done and I always send them to Nira. Go to her, you will not be sorry!!

Pros: My threader's meticulousness, kindness and amazing skill

Cons: Other threaders aren't quite happy when you have a favorite and stick to her

Perfect Shape is great if you're looking to have some cheap threading done. But, if you want your eyebrows done really well, go somewhere else. Understandably the employees here are just looking to get as many people in and out of their chair as possible, and there's no incentive to make your brows look good. Some of the women are better than others - I've been a couple times and had experiences from very good to awful. One woman took scissors to my eyebrows and hacked a lot of them off before I even knew what she was going to do! No one will ask what you're looking for, so be specific before they start working on your face.

Pros: fast, cheap

Cons: poor quality, no attention to detail, no effort for customer satisfaction

If you are a wax person, try the threading, its a gaurantee that it will hurt less and look better. And there is no one in the city that can do it better than these ladies.

Pros: Threading, Value, Speed, Service

Cons: Decor, Small Sitting Area

I go here ever couple of weeks, and I love it. The staff is nice and professional and they will do whatever they can to make sure your happy. If you get more than two services, they usually stamp your card twice (every 10th stamp is a free eyebrow).

Due to "word of mouth" I've been going to the Perfect Shapes on 39th and 6th and have had great luck with them. I went to Mintu per a recommendation from my friend, and she is amazing with my eyebrows. I've tried many many threading salons in Manhattan and they have always made my eyebrows too thin, too short, or just plain uneven. I've been to threading salons for $6 to high-end threading that cost $20. I have to say, the ONLY threader I'm ever going to see from now on is Mintu. She is always very friendly, gives me a perfect arch and doesn't miss a hair. The staff at the salon itself may be unfriendly and rude at times, but I don't really care, as long as she works there.

Pros: Mintu!, hardly any wait, cheap

I went here out of desperation because my schedule was too tight to go to my usual place uptown. I went during my lunch break and it was a big mistake. Where in the hell did they get the name Perfect Shape? There was nothing perfect about it. The staff is rude, don't listen to you, and rush through the job. Worst of all, I left with ugly eyebrows and CUTS! Who knew string could be so sharp. My coworkers thought something happened to me on the streets!

I will be sticking to my usual place, which ironically also charges $6 but is WAAAAAY better than this joint.

I went for eyebrows and okay, for 6 bucks, it's not bad but this place is so unorganized. There are no appointments. You just walk in, sit down, and then walk up to an empty chair when you THINK it's your turn. There is no one coordinating anything. The atmosphere is not relaxing at all. The woman who did my brows did not even say hello, did not ask me what shape I wanted. When I told her anyway, she didn't seem to care at all and just did her own thing which lasted only less than five minutes. They came out just okay, not good enough for me to go back, even if it's only 6 bucks. This place is like an assembly line. The service definitely needs to improve.

I came in to get my brows shaped (wanted a completely new shape, not a touch up) and she seemed to not really understand what I wanted. Did a kind of sloppy job too, I had to point out twice all the hairs she missed, and she got impatient over that.

Would only recommend if you want to clean up stray hairs, don't expect a precise personalized service. This is a revolving door operation, you're in & you're out, they don't take the time to give you proper service...you get what you pay for!

I am extremely particular about my eyebrows -- good eyebrows can make a person's look! I have tried other places (the best in the city that wax) and time after time, I get the perfect shape (no joke).

Go there-- you will be so happy that you did!

I loved this place! I read the other reviews and have been meaning to try threading for a while, and it's so much faster and much less painful then waxing! I just walked right in, I didn't have to wait and I didn't need an appointment. I had my eye brows and my upper lip done and I had very little redness and it didn't even sting. To get both my brows and upper lip cost me only $11! Tip them!!!! They deserve it.

I have literally been stopped by people in stores to ask me where I get my eyebrows done. I've been coming here for a while & you can't beat $6 for eyebrows. You get your 6th & 13th eyebow eyebrow threading for free. They can get full at times, best service when they are not that crowded

I have waxed before, but I must tell you threading is so much better! It hurts, but once its done it last much longer! This place is the best. I get my eyebrows done for 4.75!!! This is incredible..I paid 15 at another place, and it wasnt half as good as this one. Very thorough and quick!! No need to make appointments!!! Drown out the indian music and the chatter amongt the workers, and you've got yourself one of the best beauty deals in NY.

I had my eyebrows done here....this is truly the best deal in town. Only $6 (which is a third of the price I was paying to wax). She was quick and the results were great. I can't believe how PRECISE they can get with that thread. Plus...no redness or soreness like waxing. What an incredible find! Its no frills...you are in and out in minutes. Fantastic bargain.

This place is really awesome...they do a FANTASTIC job...ESPECIALLY ANA. It hurts a little, but the results last for AT LEAST 2 weeks, and they are very exact with that thread! For ONLY $11 you can get eyebrows and upper lip threading...a real bargain for this money sucking city.
