I think all the positive reviews on here are FAKE!!
They were all written around the same time and for a place that has been open for almost 10 years, it's obvious the reviews were written by people Shyou knows.
I had gone to Salon De Shyou about 1-2 years ago a few times and I was pretty pleased with the services. Shyou's facials left my skin glowing and the massages were relaxing. Everyone who worked there was pleasant and helpful.
But things sure have changed. I went in and got man-handled by the rough new massage assistant. When I told her to please be more gentle she just grunted and kept doing what she was doing.
Shyou was running late for the appointment (and this was after her RUDE receptionist told me to make sure I'm on time). I came in and was not offered a seat or anything to drink. A word was not said to me and I just waited.
Shyou came out and didn't remember my name, even though I had been there over a dozen times. She didn't apologize for being late and instead pulled out at least $500 worth in products and asked me if I would like to buy them. This was all before my treatment.
After I went in, I was extremely uncomfortable with the massage therapist. It was obvious she didn't understand a single word of English.
The facial itself was okay but I feel like Shyou was slacking and didn't put in the time and effort she used to now that I had purchased a package.
Like I said, I remember being very happy with the overall experience at the spa when I used to go in. Now it seems like she changed employees and she especially changed her attitude to the clients

Pros: None anymore

Cons: Shyou!

I came on to CitySearch a to find a good spa near where I work on in Soho .I found Salon De Shyou (i waited for a week for my appointment ! ) full of reviews full of FIVE stars. So I went to try it, and little did I know that people who reviewed were, in my opinion, probably a bunch of pathological liars. The receptionist was rude to me, and the massage HURTS. I guess they don't know how to do a real facial ,i totally broke out after. Didn't mean to be rude, but I think reviews should be telling the truth by the general public. This place is the worst yet.

I have been with Shyou for more than 10 years. She is so much more than just a professional, she remembers your face/skin condition as if its her own. I now drive in every 2 weeks from Long Island to see her. My treatments are fabulously effective as people generally think I am 10-15 years younger than my age. Ask Shyou about the "lift" treatment, that is absolutely the BEST I can recommend to everyone!

Dear Viewer,

Thank you to everyone who has posted their opinion on City search. I am honored to have my name on the door of the salon (Salon de Shyou), even though I have no financial authority. My childhood aspirations of being a doctor have lead me down the road to becoming an aesthetician. I can find no better way to make people happy than to help them look beautiful, not only with cosmetics, but by promoting genuinely healthy skin. After 22 years of experience, I still challenge myself to further develop the knowledge and skill it requires to care for my clients. I sincerely respect and appreciate all of my patrons and the magazines who have been supportive all these years, and I will take heed of the complaints because they will help me become not only a better aesthetician, but a better person. Once again, thank you all for your thoughtful posts. I wish we all live well, laugh often and love much.

Many thanks and kind regards,

Shyou

Salon de Shyou in Soho is the ONLY place in New York where you will get top quality skin care from someone who cares about your skin as much - if not more - than you do. The salon's owner and only aesthetician, Shyou, is a very talented and knowledgable skin care expert with exceptionally high standards. Shyou has a genuine interest in everything that goes on in skin care and thoroughly researches products and procedures before recommending or using them. She is generous with samples when she feels something is right for you, but never pushes products. I currently drive from Westchester to Soho to experience Shyou's incredible facials and other services like the eyelash perm. She is THAT GOOD.

It's hard to believe I first met Shyou at The Galleria in the 1980's. Whenever she moved to a new salon, or whenever I moved - from Queens to Manhattan to New Jersey to Westchester - I would briefly consider finding someone closer to where I lived. However, I have never found anyone in this city or any others, in spas, resorts or on cruise ships, who compares to the talented Shyou. Salon de Shyou is not inexpensive, but what reputable skin care salon IS in this city - especially in Soho? If it's true that you get what you pay for, then Shyou's prices are quite reasonable. She knows my skin and has adjusted my treatments over the years to accomodate changes caused by aging, hormones, stress, etc. She has a great touch - and I trust her judgement completely.

I have watched Shyou develop into a successful business owner as she continued to hone her skills in skin care. She has never lost sight of her clients as unique individuals with different needs and she takes pride in helping them to have the best skin possible. I would highly recommed her to any man or woman who wants to put his or her best face forward, as I do. By the way, people usually think I am 5 or more years younger than I am. I attribute that happy misperception directly to Shyou!

I have battled with bad acne most of my life and have tried almost every recommended solution under the sun with little to no success. When I expressed my frustration to a friend, she told me to go to Salon de Shyou ASAP. Thank goodness I did, because after every session my 15 year skin problem cleared up more and more. Today I am so grateful to Shyou for fixing my skin. I have joined her group of loyal followers that have been with her for more than twenty years. Shyou is the best in the business and I highly recommend her to everyone.

I have been going to Shyou's for over ten years. Even though my financial situation at this point isn't the best I've been in many years, I keep going to see Shyou. I honestly think that she is the best aesthetician out there for us.

As I was planning the last touches of my wedding, my skin started to breakout. I thought I was going to have the worst wedding. But as I was going through some magazines I read about the facials at salon de shyou. So I decided to try it and it was the best decision ever. By the time my wedding came my skin was picture perfect. Thanks to Shyou, I looked beautiful.

I have been going to Shyou for at least 15 years. She has her own shop now on Thompson Street. She treats every customer as if she is curing her own skin imperfections. She is a master, and keeps up to date on the best methods. Trust her, she's the best.

I agree with the previous person who posted a comment. I have been going to Shyou since the place opened about 7 years now.
I was a regular client who came in monthly. Her facials used to be outstanding and that is why she received so many wonderful writeups. I don't know if it all went to her head but over the years I have realized she is a very fake person who puts on a song and dance to make herself look good.
Her extractions were superb and I would leave with great smooth and clear skin. Now she spends 5 minutes extracting and left me under the mask for almost 30 minutes!!! I didn't pay thousands of dollars for a package to get worse and worse treatments each time I come in.
The worst was that every time I made a morning appointment she showed up 10-20minutes late! Other times she's put me under a mask and left me for 20-30minutes and forgot about me while I hear her blabbing on the phone in the other room! She''s also become more and more pushy with her products. Not suggesting them but practically telling you if you don't then it will be your fault if your skin doesn't improve.
I'm very dissapointed in her. I used to reccommend her to all of my friends and now I just tell them to stay away.

I have been going to Shyou for two years now and while she used to be an amazing facialist...she has become less and less interested in providing good service over my last few appointments. Facials used to be an hour and 15 minutes are now done in well under an hour and my last one was only 45 minutes. I booked the first appointment of the day to which Shyou showed up 20 minutes late...which would be fine except she removed my mask as soon as she applied it because we were out of time. Usually my mask is left on for 10 to 15 minutes. Extractions, which used to be her specialty and on which she would spend a lot of time, are now done in under 5 minutes...I actually timed it my last appointment. Instead of the peel she used to use, she used some "enzyme" that felt like nothing and had no results. Even a few days later, my skin actually looked worse last time after the facial rather than better. She has suffered from the syndrome that small restaurants suffer from after getting good reviews...the quality and service go down while prices get hiked up.

Her facials used to be $160 but are now $180 and are a joke in terms of value for money. I had actually recommended this place to a lot of my friends and colleagues but unless you want her to do nothing but gouge your face out instead of doing careful, skillful extractions as she used to and have NOTHING better to do with $180, don't bother going to her again. So sad when someone who used to care about quality sells out to make more money for doing less. Showing up late to appointments and cutting corners, using inferior products, not doing extractions or leaving a mask one...gone is the once great facialist dubbed "magic hands" by naive people like me.

Cons: Everything! Worst value for your money! No peel, no extractions, no mask!!!

I love Shyou! I've been recieving facials and other treatments from her for almost 15yrs! I love her Soho location. Shyou is a highly skilled, and knowledgeable technician. She just doesn't give you a facial, but she educates you on how to care and manage your skin conditions. Shyou also has high quality skin care products available for purchase at her salon, but will also suggest more affordable products you can buy at your local pharmacy. Shyou is straight foward, honest and really cares about her clients. The treatment room is cozy, her assistant massages your arms, hands and feet while you recieve your facial....ecstasy!

Never had a problem with her, I would highly recommend!

Pros: I liked that treament is given by Shyou herself and not by an assistant.

Cons: Parking, if you drive in from out of town, best to take mass transit if possible!

I visited this place after reading a review in a magazine. I left there being told that my red skin would calm down in a day or two. Three days later, I had red marks on my face. I was so distraught, I went to my dermatologist, who told me that my vessels had broken and that I would need laser treatment to correct the redness! Stay away.
