I was looking forward to a relaxing Swedish massage at the Newbury Street Day Spa but instead of a relaxing massage, the therapist kept using too much pressure. I don't mind a deep tissue every once in a while, but that's not what I wanted here. I gather either the therapist was in a hurry or was new. I wasn't happy at all.

I was referred to this spa by the hotel I stayed in and boy was it a mistake to go there.

I went in for an eyebrow wax and manicure. The manicure was OK, but the woman who did my eyebrows did not know the proper technique and did not listen.

I told her to keep my eyebrows as thick as possible and simply to clean up the stray hairs.

Instead she waxed the upper part and took off 1/3 of my actual eyebrow FROM THE TOP!!!! Now my upper brow is naked and the hair folicles are visible.

She also waxed from the bottom and took off almost all of the outer half of my left eyebrow.

Now my eyebrows are uneven - one thicker than the other, the left one is missing most of the outer half and the top third of my brows are naked and weird-looking.

I bought some Rogain this morning and am hoping they will grow back. Avoid this place at all costs.

I have been coming here for over 3 years based on the rave reviews for Irene that I received from several friends. I didn't get Irene my 1st time and I got Oksana instead. I have gone to her ever since. She always remembers me even if it's been several months since she's last seen me. She's very friendly and extremely meticulous in makine sure every hair is gone! One stick or many sticks I have NEVER left this place with anything more than a good wax job! The price is right and I'm able to get in and get out without any fuss. I've never been unhappy with any of the services I've received. I recently ended up with Irene in a pinch and she lived right up to the reputation that I had heard of those 3 years ago. I can't imagine going to any other place and I won't until I have to move out of the city which I have no plans to do at this time. Not everybody can be pleased with everthing but this is one VERY satisfied customer right here!

Cons: its on newbury st so driving isn't the best option

Hi, this isn't actually a review but I'm visiting Boston at the end of the month and will be staying near this salon and I want to book myself in for a bikini wax.

I can't find a website for them though, can anybody help?
Thanks!

I visited Oxana for brazilian bikini waxes for 4 years or so and her skill and dedication to good work is unparalleled! I've been to countless salons and spas around the country and have never found anyone who gives quite the same level of bikini wax. Not only will she not let you leave until she's completely satisfied there's not a hair out of place, but she's friendly and chatty the entire time and is a genuinely sweet person. I recently moved to Miami and have yet to find anyone comparable to her skill level and miss her dearly! I highly recommend booking with her. The other girls are good as well just not quite as gentle and chatty as she is.

Pros: Price, Skill level, atmosphere, quick!

Cons: none, its the best

.

I just wrote a review a few months ago about previous positive experiences, and I still love coming here! I don't go that often, maybe once a year or so, but I always have a fantastic treatment with Oxana! She is so friendly & personable and always treats you like gold! She did miss a few spots, but I have ingrown hairs, so that was part of the problem. I did have a credit card issue with the spa after, but it was a misunderstanding that was fixed promptly on my part.

Pros: Receptionist was a little more friendly as well as my esthetician

Cons: missed spots

.

I had my very first wax at Newbury Day Spa with Oksana and she was the best! Despite other reviews I read, she is very friendly, talkative and does not reuse sticks in the wax! She was also very gentle with the waxing, as I told her I have very sensitive skin. I had a little redness after, but she suggested I use baby powder and witch hazel and it worked wonderfully. I went back a second time and there was less redness after the wax. She didn't miss a spot! She provided a lot of information and was very knowledgable and competent about waxing and I am definitely booking an appointment with her before my vacation!
*Side note: The wax used is HOT, and heat kills most bacteria, like when you boil water, it kills harmful bacteria. Most salons use the same wax all day because if they didn't, it would be too gosh darn expensive and they'd charge you more, so get over it!*

Pros: Wonderful staff, skilled & knowledgable professionals

Cons: Narrow, creaky elevator, receptionist doesn't smile

I like this spa because they accept walk in appointments with little wait time. I got Irine for a facial. She did a great job and I will definitely be coming back again.

I've been going to Newbury Day Spa for over a year for Brazilian waxing. No matter who does it for me, I'm in and out in 10 minutes and the job is as painless as possible. One of the best parts is that while other spas have upped their prices for Brazilian waxing, Newbury Day Spa still has one of the most competitive prices around AND they do an impeccable job. It's accessible, I can almost always book an appointment even on the day of, and the ladies there are precious.

Cons: none, seriously

They were really lazy and hasty. Unlike most spas, they gave me barely anytime to change, then did the wax terribly and made me bruised. They didn't even give me tissue or a towel to clean up afterwards like other spas. They literally spent 3 minutes total on a brazilian. I strongly recommend people to pay the extra $5-10 to go to a nicer place that won't make you bruised.

I called this salon to book 2 appointments for me and my good friend. I was looking on their web-site and I noticed they had a different price quoted than what the lady was telling me. She rudely told me that because they have just moved to "Newbury street" their prices have increased and they will not honor their old pricing...even though it was on their web-site. That was fine by me at the time as I was still interested in booking the appointments. Well, the owner ( she identified herself as such) told me to "have a nice day". When I asked if I could still book the appointment she gave me a firm "NO" and again told me to have a nice day.
Horrible! I guess with the move to Newbury street the owner must have felt that she didn't need the 2 new clients to add to the spa's base of customers. I was highly offended and booked the spa treatment at her neighbors on Newbury street. I will not be recommending that salon to anyone I know.

2 words to describe: Pompous and ignorant!!

It was my first time getting a Brazilian, and Irene was amazing!!! She was quick and gentle, and made me fell very comfortable. Also, she was very sanitary, using new sticks, despite what other reviews might have said. I'm going back to Irene, Ive already made my next appointment!!!

After reading the reviews, I gave this place a try and saw Irene for a bare brazilian. I was seriously out in less than 10 minutes. Even though its quick, I didn't feel like she was rushing, she just knows what shes doing. She gets right down to business and is very professional (doesn't miss any spots). She asked me to look over it at the end to see if it was ok, she was really nice. I'll definatly go back.

Based on the reviews here, I made an appointment with Irene. She is very friendly and has a lot of experience with waxing. Before I could say "ouch" my brazillian was done. I highly recommend her. I only wish they would improve on their decor and the receptionist would be a little more friendlier.

While visiting Boston, my friends and I booked a spa package with Newbury Day Spa. They offered what we were looking for at a reasonable price. The tiny elevator that took us to the 5th floor was a little scary. The staff was friendly and helpful. Boris gave me an awesome massage. Rita's mani and pedi was immaculate, but I was dissapointed that the pedi did not include any massage. Overall a good experience. I would definetely go back!

I had oksana, and i fell in love with her work the very first time i went. I am her client for life. I first chose her because of all the awesome reviews i saw. Now, i notice someone had nothing better to do but write about something very stupid and untrue about oksana, and the spa. I purposely watched oksana do my wax. I saw that she did change the stck that she waxes with, and i even asked her about it, she said they do not reuse under any circumstances. I really think that the spa is amazing. its not too pricey, it has awesome location, the people there are friendly. Oksana is by far my favorite, I truly reccomend her to all of you reading this.

I made an appointment with Irene for a bikini wax since I wanted to check out the place for a while.
The decor is a little old, but gets the job done. Irine was very pleasant to talk to and very fast doing the wax. Thanks to her quick work, the waxing was virtually pain free. I highly recommend Irene and will be returning in the future.

I made an appointment with Oksana because of all the reviews here. It was close and cheap ($44). I was in doubt when I first arrived at the building and took the 3-person max elevator up to the 5th floor. Their space itself was quaint but nice. The lady at the front desk never cracked a smile and wasn't very friendly.

Oksana was nice but not very talkative during the procedure so I fully focused on what she was doing. Additionally, I noticed that the other reviewer was right - they REUSE the wooden sticks. Meaning - they'll reuse the stick on you. I have NO problem with them reusing the stick, BUT they're dipping it into a COMMON container. So now that they've double-dipped into that container when waxing me.. they'll be RE-doubledipping into the container the the next customer and so forth.

She did a very thorough job, waxed front, back (where others have ignored), sides, lips and plucked broken hairs. It was a little more painful than my visit to Bella Spa because she didn't apply pressure when ripping off the paper. She used a lotion and baby powder afterwards which felt better, but I did have red dots (at the follicle) everywhere signifying broken capillaries.

Overall: Love the thorough job, but don't think I'll be returning just for the sanitation concern.

3 stars overall
4 stars for oksana

Despite my prior concerns, I came back to check the reviews because Oksana really was amazing. I decided to give the other waxers a try thinking they might be more sanitary - there were some reviewers that said they changed sticks.

1. they're still double dipping.
2. the price went up
3. service wasn't that great.
4. I've tried 2 other people instead of oksana and they're not good at all.

do yourself a favor if you still really want to try this place, just wait for oksana. she'll get the job done and left me smooth for MUCH longer than any of the other 2.

She's the only one that even makes any of this worth it and it's really not anymore. Sadly, i will not return for good anyhow because I'm still concerned..

So here is the thing! The reviews you are reading that are negative are probably coming from the same woman who take the day off to go to the spa, or don?t work in the first place. This is hands down the best place in the city if you are like me and fell that things like waxing, manicures, and facials are nothing more than female MAINTNANCE!! Because for working chicks like myself, they are necessary for maintenance, please spare me the cup of tea and thanks but I already have a bottle of water?.its my lunch break!! I do not have the time to spend an hour + on my eyebrows and my bikini wax, sorry, I just have way to much to do! This place is not only very fast, but highly efficient and cheap. You can call in the morning, go in at lunch, and not have to worry about anything for another 3 weeks, for around 60 bucks! I have seen both Oksana and Irene, and they are both very good. They get you in and out, quickly, and they certainly get the job done! If you are looking for the next chic hot-spot-spa, this is not your destination. However, if you are just looking to get a wax, forget about it and go on with your life, this place is the best!!!

Did I mention they are virtually painless??

I agree with other reviewers in that this is the quickest brazilian wax I have ever experienced as well as the cheapest. But you get what you pay for here. I don't mind that the place is not the most up to date in decor but they double dip and reuse the stick that they use for braziian waxes. If you want a sanitary wax visit Spa Newbury, they use a new stick with each dip. It might be a little pricier but I am willing to pay an extra $30 if I can avoid catching a VD.

I agree with everyone: Oksana is fantastic. I got my first Brazillian, I have sensitive skin, and while it was far from a painless experience I'd shudder to imagine how it would be with someone less quick, friendly, and professional than Oksana. She honesly had the whole thing done within about 15 minutes....it was flawless.

I made an appointment with Oksana as a direct result of all the positive waxing reviews I read about her on this site. The result? It was quick and relatively painless, and inexpensive for a Brazilian ($44). She was really nice and her hands were very quick. However, the most painless experience with waxing I've had to date would still be at Joi Salon in the North End. They use hard wax and it's honestly so much better! The problem is that it's very inconvenient to get to and more expensive ($55). So for ease of commute, quality, and affordable value, Newbury Day Spa and Oksana is the way to go.

I have been getting brazilian waxes for 9 years now, and I had no idea that it could be THIS AMAZING. Oksana made me feel really comfortable, they took me as a very last minute walk in before they closed, the women are very nice, this is in a great location, and I have to stress that this waxing was incredible. Oksana gave me breaks when I needed them, she acknowledged that I had sensitive skin, she got EVERY SINGLE hair -- she finished off by tweezing and making sure of this! I have found a new favorite, a rare find.

I could not believe how quick and easy Irene was with my Brazilian....it literally took less than 10 minutes and she got every last hair!!! She was abosolutely wonderful and the cost was only $44. This place is a must if you are not happy with your current waxer!!!

The spa facilities are a little cramped but for a brazilian wax, I highly recommend Oksana. It was my first time, so I was a bit wary as to how painful it would be. She was thorough, very sweet and friendly, not to mention quick with her hands. Fast hands are a must in pain-free waxing. The hot wax stings a little, but nothing one can't handle and the entire process is as painless as a brazilian wax can be. She also makes you feel at ease and the entire process took about 15 - 20 mins. She kept my mind off the waxing with her comment, "your BF will be thrilled". After the wax, she tweezes stray hairs, calms it down with a soothing lotion and powders it with baby powder. ("Smooth as a baby's bottom" - she quipped) I'm not one to usually write reviews but her service was so exemplary I had add to this list. I HIGHLY recommend her. At $44- it's amazing.

In my research for a brazilian bikini wax I came across the great recommendations for Oksana. She has done the best job ever! She's quick, kind and does not make it an uncomfortable/awkward for you! What's even better is that you cannot beat the price! I will continue to be a regular customer of Oksana for all my waxing purposes!

Irene is the best when it comes to brazillian wax. I've been going to her for a few years now and she always gets the job done perfectly! I would not trust any other place to do my brazillian. Irene is a very friendly and a warm person and I highly recommend her if you want a great brazillian wax.

I've tried MANY different salons in the Boston area in search of a perfect brazilian bikini wax (and have had some horrible experiences in the process), however nobody has come close to Irene at Newbury Day Spa, she is by far my favorite. Other places will call it a "brazilian" wax without doing the job. Irene is extremely good, professional and most importantly, very thorough. Plus, you can't beat this price anywhere in Boston, not just Newbury St.

I had a french manicure at the Newbury Day Spa and it was perfect. My manicurist was very professional and experienced. My hands received the most relaxing exfoliation and massage. She was very gentle and did the best job on my french manicure. Not a single flaw. It was a wonderful pampering experience. If you're looking for the perfect, flawless manicure I would go to this Spa.

I agree with everything said about Oxsana! I had my first Brazilian there today. I booked the appointment the day before with no trouble. She was professional, friendly, skilled, and nice. Since she knew it was my first time she explained everything before she did it and answered all my questions. I felt very comfortable and the end result was perfect. A+

Oksana is great - she was fast, efficient, and really a perfectionist - she made sure she got as much hair as possible and she periodically asked me if I was feeling okay. Bikini waxes are never fun (especially Brazilian) but she finished the job so quickly that I didn't have to endure any more pain than necessary and I came away with no bumps or bruises and the best Brazilian wax ever. I highly recommend this spa. I'm only scared my review will make it harder for me to get an appointment!

I have been all over this city in search of the perfect bazilian and I have found my spot. If you are looking for someone who does a very efficient (in and out in 15 minutes) and impeccable job - ask for Elena. She is fabulous. And the price is just right. Elena also does amazing eyebrows!

Irene is a goddess of brazillian waxes! My friend and I had a really bad experience with La Dolce and frantically looked on City Search for a new place, found Irene and have gone together to see her three times now. I am almost excited to get the wax, because I'm always so amazed how almost painfree the process is compared to other places I've gone to. And for the price, it's definitely worth it!

I recently got engaged and called Newbury Day Spa after finding them on Citysearch. I had to get a manicure the day after!! I was on Cloud 9 and still delirious from the night before. The Spa fit me in right away and were so nice! Rya gave me a beautiful french manicure and shared in my exciting news!! It was such a relaxing manicure. She is quick & efficient without seeming too rushed and crazed. I can't stand that. The decor is a little shocking - kind of reminds me of my Grandmother's bathroom - but don't be alarmed! The service is wonderful and not like the pretentious Newbury St. places we are used to. I would highly recommend this place if you would like to relax, be pampered and recieve great service.

I've been to see Oksana about 5 times now, and I think she is great. The only time I had a problem, it was my fault, as i shaved b/t visits which made alot of the hair break, she was not thrilled with me...But she is VERY sweet and remembers you everytime. Plus is a great deal, especially on newbury street. I had been a couple places before and this is the only one i keep going to! The waxing technique is much better than other places as well. Highly Recommend

Oxsana is by far Boston's best kept secret. This little lady is the nicest, most professional waxer (if thats what you call them) I have ever come across. Living in Europe it has been difficult to find a Brazilian that gets everything and isn't expensive. Oxsana is incredible. Professional, kind and to the point she does whatever you feel comfortable with. She gets everything and takes the time to make it perfect. It is soo cheap only 38$ and seriously gets the job done. THE BEST BRAZILIAN in boston is an understatement.

I saw Irene for brazillian bikini waxing for a while. She is very fast and skilled in her technique and the price is about 30% less than most Newbury street spas, but the sub-par atmosphere, unfriendly attitudes, and ugly decor finally got to me. It got the job done in a cheap and (relatively) low-pain manner, but I always had wax stuck on me after and so I started bringing my own wax removing solution and soothing lotion to use on myself before I left. One positive thing however is that they always have availability, so if you decide you want an appointment in say...30 minutes, they'll be able to accomadate you 90% of the time.

Terrible! I'm not one of those people who typically writes reviews, but I feel compelled. I made an appointment for a certain type of facial, but the aesthetician proceeded to do another type of facial, without explaining the procedure. Halfway through, I interrupted and asked what was going on, only to find out I was having the *incorrect* facial done and had to pay *additional* for the type of treatment I requested (and which was noted in the appointment book). On top of that, she burned my face with the steam. There were no apologies or explanations. Facials are supposed to be relaxing - I left there LIVID.

Trying to find value in an expensive city can be a challenge but rewarding when you find it. I learned that a good bikini wax is something that is worth the extra money because I learned that when it is cheap, you are risking it. The woman who performed my wax could not have gone any faster without giving herself whip lash. It hurt so badly I stopped the wax mid way through, said I had an appointment and ran for the door. She used the worst technique in the book to wax, you know, the paper and wax method! Ouch, can we say broken hair! Never again!!!!!! Unless you enjoy the feeling of fire between your legs

I have had countless brazilian bikini waxes in the Boston area, and this one pretty much topped the ranks. It was fast and thorough, with no bruising or unnecessary pain. The esthetician waxed a lot of area at once, which I prefer to those who rip the hair out in tiny, painful strips. I've paid a lot more in the past for much worse brazilians, and I'd definitely come here again.

I highly recommend Elena for jobs. Eyebrows are done precisely and WITHOUT pain. Bikini wax still hurts but it is done quickly (minimal torture). Also you can call and get an appointment on the same day for those beauty emergencies.

This spa is okay. The decor is outdated and dusty, the bathroom trashcan had no bag, the ladies speak Russian the whole time (making non-Russian speakers feel insecure). The robes ARE tattered and smelly. The massage was wonderful, as was the esthetician and manicurist. But after awhile you get tired of being asked, "It's GOOD, yes? Feels GOOD?". Yikes. P.S. The esthetician said she'd return in 10 minutes and it turned to 20. Twice. I spent all day here and by the end, I wanted to go home badly. The final makeup application was hurried and OLD Aveda makeup was used.
