This place is TERRIBLE. I moved back into the city for a job on Fifth and 52nd Street. This place was recommended by a co-worker. It was convenient and had a tanning salon attached (two of my favorite past times). I signed up for a 10 tan package. My first tanning experience was ok. Then I followed it up with a manicure. The manicurist cut my cuticle not once but twice. It freaked me out because I couldn't tell if and where she cleaned her tools. Needless to say I never went back for another manicure but, I still had nine tans to use. Every time I tried to use my tans during my lunch hour I ran into a problem. Some of the problems I encountered include:

No worker present on the isolated tanning salon level of the salon resulting in me hunting one down;

When you finally found someone, usually an obnoxious young girl, you received an attitude;

Once assigned a room, I would prepare to tan only to find the time was never set on the bed. On one occasion I had to redress, exit the room and hunt down an employee to set the bed; and

On my final visit my tanning bed was set for 10 minutes. The bed shut off after five minutes. I checked the start timer on the wall and it was still running. Once again, dressed and left to find an employee who was no where to be found.

I hate wasting time, money and dealing with stupid people. I will NEVER return to this place and my co-workers are also boycotting this joke of a business.

I recently went to this place to get a pedi and a wax. I found the technicians to be very pushy to sell additional services which I had to decline a few times before they let it go. The woman at the front desk was not particularly polite.

There is nothing more annoying than the techs speaking Chinese and making obvious they are speaking about you. I went in (the following day after having it done) to have a botched nail job fixed because they inevitably manage to mess-up

shellac gel nails are an extremely natural-looking enhancement: thin, non-yellowing, nonporous, resist lifting. I have these nails and its great because they can be used for natural nail overlays, tip overlays, and sculpted onto forms

I was walking by and I was given a flyer. I went in and it was kind of shabby looking, I should have turned away but for some reason I went in. The lady who did my brows seemed nice. I told her it was my first time threading and I was a bit nervous. She started threading and then not even a minute in she asked if I wanted to wax. I was a bit confused but I said ok. I was kind of shocked when she suddenly walked away, only to realize she was done. I looked in the mirror and it seemed ok but upon closer inspection I realized she had butchered my left brow. I now have uneven brows.... I'll never go again. The sad part is I had already chosen a more reputable threading salon, but I was so desperate to get rid of my caterpillar brows (that I'd been growing out specifically to try out threading), that I ended up going to the crappiest place possible. Now I have to go out and buy an eyebrow pencil to fill in the gaps that woman left on my left brow. Please avoid this place, growing your eyebrows back takes a long time so it's just not worth it to try this place out for that. I am only speaking of their eyebrow threading/waxing service, I don't know the quality of their other services.

Worst experience in my life (as far as nails/toes go). The manicurist talked me into the Spa Pedicure, because it was good for my bones and legs...she said you get an extra massage, hot towels, and a scrub. Well there was no extra massage and the scrub was applied to my legs and then wrapped in saran wrap....the only use of the hot towels was too remove the scrub...she was more attentive to the customers coming into the salon than to the customer she had in front of her. It was definitely NOT worth the extra $40. My Spa Pedicure took less time than the girl sitting beside me who paid $40 less to get a regular pedicure. Usually, when you do not receive good service (which I did not), a minimum tip is paid...However, she insisted that I pay her 20% tip. To top it off, the pedicure lasted through the weekend before it chipped...I have never had a pedicure that lasted less than a week.

Had the most enjoyable experience ever with my spray tan. I needed to get color for a wedding and they helped me out. I looked like I just came back from Caribbean. No smell and natural looks. I also was able to bet my eyebrows waxed. Thank you Fifth Ave Beauty salon.

STELLA is back!!! And my hair has never looked so good as it does now. She left because she gave birth (congratulations to her of course) but thank god she is now back and I'm ecstatic about it. Stella now only works on Wednesday's and I make sure to make my schedule so that I always come and see Stella. Stella lives and breathes hair. She knows what color and style needs to be done in order for me to look and feel GORGEOUS.... Anyone who's anyone needs to come to Stella for she will make you look and feel great.

I just started working around the corner from Fifth Avenue Beauty salon. So i popped in one day at lunch to get a quick manicure and pedicure before the weekend. I type all day on a computer so I didn't realize how badly I needed this. My hands felt like they just wanted to float up on their own. My biggest and most pleasant surprise was how long the manicure lasted! It lasted 6 days without a single chip, despite me cleaning my apt, typing all day, etc... . Hands down, this salon is the best nail salon I've ever been to, and I will most definitely be back for all of my manicures and pedicures!??

I think the problem at this location as well as there other location (Nails On 54th.) is there management is horrible and money hungry. At both locations the person in charge literally yells at there employees while they are taking care of their customer.

They are told to rush so they can take more people and end up doing such a horrible job, I wouldn??t recommend this place even if you are looking for cheap. Also, the pricing is completely inconsistent. I think they are just ripping people off honestly.

At both places the person who was doing my nails ended up apologizing to me in Spanish for their rude bosses.

Like most of the other posts they come off extremely rude, they are loud Russian women who are very pushy at getting you to do more than what you came there to do and if you say no they become very offended and come off like they are talking badly about you (which they probably are, hence coming off racists).

I went to get my hair, eyebrows and a manicure done and that was the only place that I could do everything at once. In the interim I was offered a pedicure, bikini wax, facial, and to cut and color my hair along with some extra thing for my hair because ??it looked dry?.

You get what you pay for is the moral of this story, I would never go back here and I would again NOT recommend it.

If you like this place I am 100% sure you probably being serviced by one of the Spanish or Asian women because they are pleasant and not pushy.

I don??t understand how this business game plan works for them, I know so many people who have and will never go back there or would never go there to begin with. I think they have potential of being a good salon but then the owners would have to be fired, so I guess there is no hope for this place.

This place does the best manicures and pedicures. Not only is the price out of this world, but so is the service. The ladies know what they are doing and they do it efficiently. I always feel relaxed when I get my manicure & pedicure. It lasts for a full week without chipping, that is because the ladies work from the bottom of their hearts. They only have our needs and happiness in their minds, they always strive to make every person that comes in happy.

DO NOT GO HERE UNLESS YOU WANT A HALF-ASSED MANI/PEDI FROM UNSKILLED, RUDE, R A C I S T WORKERS.
I went here for a Brazilian wax and a manicure/pedicure before going on vacation. The price wasn't bad ($35 for wax, $23 for mani/pedi), so I gave it a shot. I was done with a Brazilian, manicure AND pedicure all in under 30 minutes. I am all for expedient service, but not at the expense of quality! It looked like I painted my own nails (paint on my skin, uneven coating, unpainted areas of my nails, chipped within a day, etc) I can't complain about the wax; it's pretty straight forward... but this was by far the worst mani/pedi I have ever paid for. They did not do anything with my cuticles but poke at it a few times and the filing was crooked...the actual paint job: HORRENDOUS. I am non-white and was secretly told by someone (also non-white) from the salon that I was being treated this way by the Russian women because I wasn't white. I have never written a review on citysearch but felt compelled to because of my horrible experience. These women have no business doing nails.

I have been going to this great salon for a few years now.. They are the only ones that I trust with waxing, air brush tanning, and my manicure. They have a family atmosphere, they use professional products and provide the best service. This salon is a must to try. I think you won't be disappointed.

I recently got a "Gentlemen" facial at "5th ave beauty "salon. I wish I could remember my aesthetician's name, because she was awesome. She was super conversational, and very thorough. The "Gentlemen" facial is a little expensive - about $90 - but worth it. The salon is very clean, and everyone there was extremely nice and helpful. I booked an appointment ahead, but they take walk-ins as well. I am definitely considering taking advantage of one of the massage specials they always seem to be running.

The management (Steve & Rokhel) is great ,they always work with me when booking an appointment witch is not easy with my schedule, and when you come in there attention is always on you no matter how busy they are, they make me feel at home. Its cozy and a perfect fix from the everyday city life.

My girlfrend & I been going there for about seven months to see Bertha for our waxing needs and we find that she's great. Compared to all the other places we have been going for brazillians(my girl) and back waxing myself. This place is much more reasonably priced. It's always been very clean and Bertha is super fast - I am out of the place in under 10 minutes (this may be the rushing part other people talk about, but with waxing, I don't exactly want it to last any longer!). But try to make an appointment first.

I had a lovely tanning experience at "5th ave beauty salon". The staff is very attentive and Miara , who did my spray tan session, is extremely professional. She cares that her part of the salon is run properly and that her customers are satisfied with their service . . . . a rarity in a city that often thinks of the phrase "customer satisfaction" as a level of service that only VIPs are entitled to receive.

i have been going to STELLA since I moved to New York (over 5 years now) ? not only is she an incredible stylist, she is one of the most genuine people that I have met in THE City. Going for a haircut is one of the highlights of my month ? "5th avenue beauty" salon is an amazingly great space that instantly reminds me how lucky I am to live in one of the greate City?s in the world. I always have STELLA with the perfect cut and the perfect colour ? highly recommend

The review written on 9/21/08 is a show of jealousy from an ex employee, who I will not name out of respect for the salon and her. There was always hatred towards Esther, and afterwards when she was fired she wanted to take out her anger somehow and she thought that if she would write this review she would get her revenge. (We heard that she got a job around in another salon, and she was fired from there as well).

I passed by this place many times and finally made an appointment for a highlight and haircut. I have naturally dark hair and have had a difficult time getting a stylist to make the color not so drastic where it is obvious that I have highlights, I like the more subtle look. Been to several salons, even ones that are insanely expensive and never really was happy. But this place really understands color! The stylist sat down, discussed different types of color, really explained her opinion and asked mine. Bottom line this place is professional, not pushy, prices are good for what the place offers. Great place if needs highlights and good guidance on what color options there are.

Been to several salons, even ones that are insanely expensive and never really was happy. But this place really understands color! The stylist sat down, discussed different types of color, really explained her opinion and asked mine. Bottom line this place is professional, not pushy, prices are good for what the place offers. Great place if needs highlights and good guidance on what color options there are.

I find this funny. If you take a look at the reviews in their favor, many of them follow the same pattern- poor spelling, and sentences often beginning with uncapitalized letters...which leads me to believe that this place writes reviews for themselves!!.. . I had the displeasure or landing in Esther's hair chair as well and it was right up there with breaking my leg in second grade. So unprofessional, rude, a simple waste of money. This supposed manager you are supposed to complain to is virtually nonexistent- as are the brains of the employees that work here.

I am a big clean freak and cant stand and inch of dirt. So that makes me very picky about where I go to get my nails. My friend, Samantha, told me that the salon that she goes to is very nice and a clean facility. I made an appointment to have my nails done. I went and an asian woman started to do my manicure I saw that her table was clean and that her tools were sanitized and even before she stared to use them on me she sanitized them again because I told her I was a big clean freak. I was very happy with my manicure, she filed the exact shape that I wanted and the color looked so beautiful there was nothing on my nail beds it was painted on perfectly. While I was drying my nails I saw examining the salon and saw that it is a very clean salon and they even have a cleaning woman who cleans after everyone and everything. I was very satisfied with my manicure and at how clean the salon was.

Pros: Its a clean and beautiful salon

The above review written on 9/21/08 is a show of jealousy from an ex employee, who I will not name out of respect for the salon and her. There was always hatred towards Esther, and after when she was fired she wanted to take out her anger somehow and she thought that if she would write this review she would get her revenge.
(We heard that she got a job around in another salon, and she was fired from there as well).

Hey everyone my name is Samantha, I had a misunderstanding with my boss one day and all that stress affected my back. I had such horrible knots in my back that I could barely move my neck. I went back to my desk and my assistant saw that I was really stressed out and recommended me to go to her salon. She told me they have massages and that the massaues are really good. I went and I told them about my back pains and they offered me a variety of massages and recomended me to have the hot lava stone massage. They told me it would relive me of my back and neck pains. I decided to give the hot stone a try. All I have to say is that it was such a great massage, She got all the knots out and the hot stones were really relaxing. I've never felt so relaxed, I'm very happy with the results. I will deffinantly come back.

I was overdue for a manicure pedicure, so I decided that I would use my lunch break to get one. I went online and looked for the closet place and found this one. When I got there, they took me right away, which I liked. However, upon sitting in the pedicure chair, I noticed that the tub was filthy. So, I figured they just hadn't cleaned it yet and kept my feet on the side. Before I know it, the nail technician was filling it with water and asking me to drop my feet into it. I asked if it had been cleaned and she said yes, that it was just stained! I thought, okay, I'm here, let's just do it. Then, the technician tried to talk me into getting a champagne spa pedicure because my feet were "very dry." I said no thank you and stuck with the regular old fashioned kind. The technician proceeded and when it came to the pumice stone part, she simply put some lotion on the stone and dragged it across my feet ONCE (not exaggerating) and put my feet back in the water. So, after telling me that my feet were dry, she spent no time trying to help that with the tool made for such a task. Fine. Then, I had two colors that I wanted to choose from. She put the first one, a very pale pink, on my big toe and I didn't like it. I decided to go with the other. She didn't even take the first color off! She just put the darker one over it! After I was finished with both the manicure and pedicure, I gave my debit card for payment and asked to add a $5.00 tip to the total. The Asian woman who was taking my card said "That's all?" I didn't think it was possible that I heard right so I said "Sorry?" She replied, "You're only giving five dollars?!" Again, I had to have misheard so I said, "excuse me?" And she said, "It's $30, you're only giving $5." I was in such shock by how rude she was that I just shut up and turned around. I literally didn't know how to respond.Never going back!

I would just love to show some parise to Esther, the hairdresser who works at 5th Ave Beauty Salo. She has been doing my hair for a year now. She is just wonderful. My color is fabulous, my highlights are even better. She also does my eyebrows, which is a great plus for me. Over all I am very happy with the results.

Iam a regural tanning customer here and I have been coming here for the past two years. Iam very satisfed with my color. The packages that they offer are very affordable, there is a big variety of lotion bottles to choose from. The best part is that now they are giving 10% off any beauty treatments to tanning customers. I get my hair, nails, and wax done and when it comes time to pay I get 10% off from my bill. I couldnt be more happy.

A response to 08/10/2008 Posted by CloverW. I understand your distress. Their is a woman by the name of Rachel working here and she has been since 1996, she is a very experienced technician.. she now is the manager of the salon. am well aware of the problems the average woman face when it comes to presenting one self perfectly. It take time to adjust to a new person. I am sorry for the misunderstanding and I hope you will come back to us. Thank you.

To all the people who gave this place 5 stars...... ARE YOU KIDDING ME??????
I came here to get my waxing first time ( and that would be the last time) and asked for someone really good with eyebrows. Rachel was the lady who took me and 'seemed' really nice and said she has tons of experience and I shouldn't worry. Not only did she ignored me when I explained what shape I wanted, she also began pointing out that I need to get my lip done as well. When I explained that I need to get back to work and will be extremely red if I get it done, she assured me that it will not happen. End result.... my eyebrows were a disaster with lots of gaps in between which will take months to grow back, AND I ended up going to work with really really red lip and had to cover myself with a tissue for the rest of my work day!

I was a regular customer at the5th ave Tanning Salon, and I thought I would try the Mysic Tan. Since it was my first time using Mystic Tan I asked questions but the woman showed me a video that answered all of my questions. Once I stepped into the Mystic room everything looked familiar to me. I had six choices of color, three with bronzers, and three without bronzers. When I stepped into the machine at first it startled me but the smell was amazing. After I got home I took a shower after waiting five hours and I had an unbelivable glistening glow. It was the perfect shade, it was worth every penny.

Hello everyone I would like to tell you my story. I naturally have very short nails and everytime they grow a little they tend to break. I've had extension nails for as long as I can remember. I myself live in New Jersey, so I get my nails done in New Jersey. I was going to Manhattan with my girlfriends and didn't have time to get my fill ins. So one of my girlfriends told me she goes to a salon in the city and recommended me to get my fill ins there. I decided to go and get my nails done in the 5th Ave Beauty Salon. A woman by the name of Laura, did my nails. She told me my extensions were old and that I needed to get a new set. She did my extensions and asked me if I'd rather use color U.V gels than regular nail polish. Laura showed me their collection, I was intrigued and decided to give it a try. My nails looked beautiful. The U.V gel cost a bit extra, but it was worth it, because for three weeks my nails looked like I had gotten my nails done that day.

I was a first time customer at the 5th Ave Tanning Salon. The service was great, the beds were sanitized, and the salon itself was very clean. There were fresh towels and goggles ready for me before my session. After my tanning session I couldn't resist but get a weekly package.

I was visiting the city and realized my hair was a mess. I'm a very picky person and need to have everything perfect. I saw the sign for 5th Ave Beauty Salon and decided to get my hair done. I walked in and was welcomed very nicely. I told the receptionest that I needed a wash and blowdry. Than "Stella" came and told me she would take care of me. She washed my hair combined with a scalp massage. Than she started to blowdry my hair. I loved the results, my hair looked great. I know it sounds crazy but I travel to the city every time I need to get my hair styled. I love the way Stella does my hair. I'm very happy with the results.

I have always had a hard time with getting a tan, my skin never seems to tan it always seems to burn instead. Once I was walking by and a man handed me aflyer and i saw that it was a flyer about a salon and that they had tanning beds. I decided to risk it and try it. I went up and right when I walked in I felt like I was in a tropical island. The atmoshpere of the saln is nice and mellow. The receptionest there helped me very much and told me what I needed to use to get color on my skin without burning myself. I love the the tanning beds they have there. I love the mystic tanning as well. I love my color now I look great and I feel great. I am so happy that I found this tanning salon. And the prices are very affordable. I recommend everyone to go and tan at this salon.

My downtown office was moved up to Park Ave. I found this salon through a flyer that was handed to me . When I was looking it over I saw that the prices were resonable and I decided to go for a manicure and pedicure, and I saw that they had all types of pedicures and manicures. I feel in love with the spa pedicure and spa manicure, but what I really fell in love with was the champagne pedicure. The relaxing salts,soaps,and foot massages combined with champagne was amazing. Than I decided to get my hair done as well. So,all i have to say is that i love this salon.It has everything that i need.The service is the great,and the workers are all warm,loving, and charming. I will come back!

I went here to treat myself to a manicure/pedicure on the eve of my birthday, but came back throughly disappointed. This was perhaps one of the worst manicure/pedicure experiences I have ever had. The manicurist/pedicurist seemed to be in a great rush to finish the manicure/pedicure even before she had started. I mentioned to her to ensure my nails are cut as I have a problem of ingrown nails. This was simply ignored. She kept trying to sell to me to go in for the spa pedicure as that is really nice, when I refused the basic pedicure was done in a haphazard manner and I was told explicitly that the spa pedicure (which costs double) would ensure a good finish.

The manicurist/pedicurist was also unable to even cut the nails evenly, and while 1/2 nail was cut, the other was still long. In between the manicure she suddenly stopped doing what she was and asked me to pay first!

After paying she applied nailpolish which chipped off as soon as I kept my hands in the dryer.

The whole process of pedicure/manicure was finished in a matter of minutes, giving the impression that they are actually doing a favor!
