I've had my haircut at Cavale by a master for $75 a few times now and have been very pleased with the results. Last time I went I accepted a (I don't remember what level he was) and by golly if I had gone for a $10 haircut it would have

I wanted to make my hair darker for the winter, so I bought a bottle of dye at the pharmacy and to my horror it came out way to dark. My hair is naturally light. A friend highly recommended Cavale Tonuzi Salon so i made an appt. asap. Even though it cost more then any store bought dye it was worth every penny and i wont go anywhere else.

I do not know anyone who enjoys a Brazilian Wax, but lets be honest. Some of us in the world find it necessary.

Leanne makes the experience very comfortable, and I didn't think that was possible. Not only is she super friendly and sweet, but she is an EXPERT at Brazilian waxing. She makes sure that ALL of the hair is gone and uses soothing AVEDA products to make your skin soft afterwards. I will never go to anyone but Leanne from now on. I will just have to make sure I plan better so I can get an appointment.

I recently needed an emergency Brazilian Wax and couldn't get an appointment with her, so I went to Pilo Arts. I figured it was comparable because it's also a high end place and I figured how bad could it be? What a MISTAKE! It was the most poorly excecuted brazilian wax I've ever had. The girl left a lot of hair even after I told her there was still hair she said I didn't wait long enough to let it grow. She didn't even want to pluck any of the extra hairs.

I will just wait for Leanne next time, since she really knows what she's doing.

Came here and Gina did my highlights, or should I say her assistant. They made me wait and wait and wait going back and forth ..I think Gina was too busy with something else. I guess my $ 200 highlights wasn't enough to keep her busy. i came there at 12pm and ended up leaving when they were closing.. my hair was a blond mess in the back and then there were gold streaks in the front it was terrible. I went home crying my hair felt like a broom and I went to rite aid and brought black dye to go over my mistreated hair. I've never had such a terrible time, I really hope that if you are thinking about going here..plz don't! It's not worth the risk!!!

Exactly what you'd expect from an upscale salon/day-spa. Beautiful surroundings and a relaxing, peaceful atmosphere. The staff were fantastic. They really care about their customers. I had an amazing facial with Gla that was catered to my specific skin care needs and problems. Will definitely keep coming back for more!

Simply the best Brooklyn has to offer. Very service oriented and every experience has been exceptional. The staff is talented, friendly, and professional. I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else.

This was the worst experience I ever had in a salon. And I am a spa junkie. I love to go to them & try new places. Since I am new to the area, I tried it here. From the moment I walked in I felt horrible. I was greeted by a young girl, Gabriel I think was her name & she was so cold!! She had me waiting over 20 minutes for Lisa. Lisa's assistant eventually came to greet me but that Gabriel already put me in an awkward feeling. She did not even smile at me & barely looked up from the desk. Then everything with Lisa was fine. She actually did my hair beutifully. I wish she was at another salon so I could go to her. Then I go to front to pay & that one was still there, get this - talking about the owner - Georgienne I think was her name & saying what a b***ch she was. Something about ownership problems she was also going on about. I could not believe her. To talk like that when you are right in front & then to treat clients the way she does. Plus, she messed up my change. Please. Fire her & maybe I will go back.

I totally agreed that Cavelli Tonuzi/Tantra Spa has gone downhill big time!! Good news.. I heard Charlie is still in the area, but Violette is not, well at least for now. I sent a friend there before I found out that Charlie & Violette had left. She was so disappointed with the color/highlights, her hair looked overprocessed and they charged her the same price as if it were the owners or a more experienced staff member. I agree.. stay away.

I love jeannie at cavale tonuzi!!!! the first time i walked in to cavale tonuzi i felt comfortable, the assistants greet you at the door and instantly take your coat and offer you somthing to drink.once introduced to jeannie my stylist (whom i have to say was very attractive an very sweet ) i sat in her chair for a breif conslutation and was on my way to the shampoo area.the shampoo was amazeing with smell of natural aroma's in the air and a scalp massage to relax any tension you may have in your body... i must say my hair and scalp really felt clean and it was invigorateing i felt totaly refreshed. i sat in the chair and was once again greeted with a warm smile and again brifed on our consultation she really made sure she was listening to what i wanted.after the service i felt like a different person my hair looked gorgeous ,i could have been on the cover of cosmo i looked Hot!!!! my hair has never looked so sexxy , It was amazeing! i was in and out within 30 min. and the assistant even showed me back to the coat closet .they were very attentive but not pushey.im so happy i found the complete package.

Had the best experience, this is not just a top place in Brooklyn but in the metro area and I'm a spa person. If first impressions are valid then from the moment I entered I felt welcome. I was greeted warmly when checked in and my massage was on time. I was taken down a flowing stairway and led to a private bathroom with a shower and my own locker. I had a massage with Jeanie and was not charged any additional fees for a deep tissue, it seems this spa includes a whole array choices for your massage at one price. I was also offered a series which allows a substantial discount if you purchase 3.

After my massage I was led to a relaxing room where I was able to wind down before I got dressed and went upstairs to get my hair done. Massimo was recommended to me since It was my first time and I loved him! He made my hair come alive with a style and a blowout and gave me some great color suggestions, which I already booked an appointment for.
I received a gift certificate and never expected to be blown away , I never knew this place existed right in my backyard. FIVE STARS, any other review is from someone who doesn't know the best!

Where should I begin? I walked into make an appointment with Charlie. They said he was no longer there. (First signal to walk out I new he was the owner) Then they said i can have my hair cut right now. Which at first I thought was great service. OMG to make it short the wash was cold, the stylist was miserable, the cut and the style was "BEAUTY PARLOR" I had expected great things from this placed it was so highly recommended. Like I said what a disappointment it always happens ownership changes and so does the business!! I guess we have another BEAUTY PARLOR on 3rd ave.

Cons: couldn't find one

Wow This place has come a long way, I was in there last week and I heard its under new management. I am a long time customer and it was always a good establishment but now its being run like a professional business with the customers needs in mind.

Before I got in the door a commentary valet took my car. When I entered, I was greeted pleasantly and my coat was taken also compliments of the salon. The front desk checked me in and let me know my stylist Jeanie was running on time and offered me, yes, complimentary hot chocolate, tea or cappuccino.

I had a shampoo and scalp massage that put me in a great mood. Jeanie made me look like a new woman, with a touch up and blowout and her prices are great and she also has done fantastic up hair for me when I had an event. Manicures with Angela are awesome. I've been told, quote from management there are many more exciting changes going forward.

On Sundays and Tuesdays they have a "Live Well Spend Smart" promotion, you can get a blowout from their talented staff with aveda products for $20 or bring a friend and get 2 blowout for $35. Now this is an amazing place! The best in Brooklyn.

Had reservations at first because but they were quickly quelled the first moment I walked in.

The experience starts with valet, being warmly greeted, having my coat put into a secure coat check area, and an offer of a beverage. This is all before I even had a service, so I was feeling pampered already. The salon has an elegant, minimal, clean, feng shui vibe--lots of light and white. I felt like my winter SAD was lifting.

Downstairs, theTantra Spa is cozy, warm, and delicious. Completely candle-lit. Great aromatherapy in the air. Couches, pillows, fresh cold water with lemon slices, good glasses to drink it from, a ridiculously thick robe, and great slippers that sort of massage your feet.

The facial with Irina J was the best I ever had. Two reasons. She is a pro-- very knowledgeable about my dry skin--and she was committed to my being satisfied. My skin looked glowy when I was done.

The blowout and gloss with Lisa F was outstanding. (I am a snob--remember? Frederick Fekkai and Julien Farel used to be my hairdressers of choice.)

When I returned, Lisa was booked so I tried Russell for color and cut. He was meticulous about covering my grey roots and took his time blowing out my curly, coarse hair into smooth waves. He didn't cut corners. No quickie blowout here. He treated me as though I was going to be in a photo shoot. I think that?s how you want to feel about your stylist?s commitment to your hair if you're dishing out money for a blowout.

I know this sounds deliriously over the top. But, for me, it's been like finding nirvana in my own Bay Ridge backyard and I couldn't be happier.

I've been a customer at Cavale for many years now. I recently went there, and I found out that that the two main owners Charlie, & Violet are now gone. Apparently they left the buisness. So, my advice to all of you Cavale customers is to beware!!! Things weren't the same in there anymore. The vibe was very bad, the staff looked miserable, and the over all energy of the place had changed. I felt very uncomfortable. As a local salon goer, I advise all of you not to stop in Cavale anymore. There are alot of other salons in Bayridge that are also great! Don't be afraid to give another salon on 3rd ave a try! I did!

I went to Irina for a facial and have never had someone take the time to really listen to my skin concerns before. She not only listened and treated my acne prone skin for the exact issues i came in for but she educated me on practices i could do at home and gave certain dietary suggestions that she felt would improve my skin. I cant believe how much my skin has improved- its about time a wonderful spa experience actually produces a lasting result- Irina is amazing! Not only was she great with my skin but my mom saw her for a facial before me and has a very different skin type and came out looking rejuvenated and beautiful. Irina really knows her stuff and really wants you to learn how to best care for your own skin!

During the summer, the colorist i had used before was on vacation. Russell was highly recommended, why? i do not know. I should have gone with my instincts but I thought i was in a "high end" salon. From the minute he started I knew something was wrong. I wanted a coppery highlight on my natural dark hair. Seemed simple, i've had it done before. He kept asking very busy stylists their opinions of what he should do. I dont think he took them up on it because after 3 hours i ended up with pink highlights, 1 hour after that the pink highlights were gone, but now i had orange roots , darker ends. 1 hour after that my hair was a Very dark brown, somewhat like what i came in with . After over 5 hours, i did not get what i wanted. Russell could not do the job, fix it, and styled my hair rather ordinary. He might have good looks, but his personality and talent will get him nowhere. The manager was very apologetic and did do the right thing by not charging me. The salon was quite nice, and there seemed to be very good stylists working on other clients, but i wasnt as lucky. Russell should find another occupation because he stinks as a stylist. Shame on the owners for trusting him to do hair! I'm still trying to correct the mess on my head. gee wizz

Pros: 40 bucks for a really professional and serene environment and treatment- cant beat that price at all!

Cons: none

I'm new to NY, I just moved to Bay Ridge from Cali. I had been experiencing achne problems for 2 years now, just outta the blue monthly bumps! I was at the point of tears...I had been going to a spa back at home for facials but I'd leave looking like I had just escaped from the battle field! My face with purple bruises and red marks all over, awful. It took weeks to heal. I assumed this is what facials were supposed to be like, until I came here!

Massage- BEST EVER! I've been to many spa's and usually the Sweedish feels like a light rub down and the deep tissue is too intense for me. BETH was my masseuse and she was perfect! It was a relaxing Sweedish with the right amount of pressure, she wasn't afraid to dig in and get the kinks out, just what I needed!

Facial- I'm a new women, I swear. I believe her name is Gala. I had 3 major bumps on my cheeks that were painful and she got rid of those suckers and I've had clear beautiful skin going on 7 weeks now! It's the first time in over 2 years! I actually just got back from my 2nd facial!

Threading- The women there does a fabulous job and actually listens to what you want. I can't tell you how many times I've asked for no over waxing/threading/plucking because for years I've been trying to grow my brows back for a thicker look, but I always end up with super thin brows. Here, she actually listens! My brows should be in good shape in no time.

Man/Pedi- Also great! Clean, beautiful, and relaxing! Finally a place that uses quality products and technique. My last Pedi was ~4 weeks ago, and it's still intact! French Mani lasted about 2 weeks!

The Salon/Spa is beautiful/trendy! I highly suggest visiting. It is a bit more than you'd pay else where, but worth it!

Pros: You get what you pay for, great results, and friendly staff.

Cons: Um, a bit noisy when trying to relax during my massage. I could here the foot steps upstairs and people speaking loudly.

I have been going to Cavale Tonuzi for two years now and have never walked out of that Salon without feeling beautiful. Antoinella colors and cuts my long hair to perfection! The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcomed and very much at home. Oh and by the way, the young ladies that wash hair give a great head massage. I'm so relaxed that I can go right to sleep! I can't wait until my next visit!

I had a brazilian wax with Irina today and was very pleasantly surprised. I used to go to J Sisters & Completely Bare for my brazilians but was looking for a more local place to go here in Bay Ridge.

The first thing of note is that Tantra Day Spa is a beautiful & relaxing spa environment; the decor is lovely. Most importantly the wax itself was super duper fast, sanitary and well executed. Irina was EXTREMELY thorough (she didn't miss a spot) and conscious of making it as painless as possible. I highly recommend her.

In addition at $40 it is about half the cost of J Sisters for a much nicer experience overall and a comparably excellent service.

Pros: Fast, Thorough Hair Removal, Sanitary, Beautiful Spa

Cavale Tonuzi is such a refreshing break from the very clinical surroundings of Pilo Arts. The service is polite and actually nice...unlike the stuck up attitude one receives at Pilo Arts. I love that they use (and sell) Aveda products. I was never pressured to purchase any of the products that were used, whether they were from a facial or hair care. Always a great experience.

Cons: That I can't afford to go every single day..because I would if I could.

If you saw my hair color before and after you would also agree that the 3 different shades of blonde in my highlights are really "beautiful". If your looking for a colorist in Bay Ridge you should check them out. Its worth the trip if you dont live close by....They all seem to be pretty creative. I was sitting long enough to see everone work and the seem like they know hair. Oh and i tried threading for the first time and as" weird "as it felt my eyebrows never looked this good.....My colorsts name was "Russell" but I heard "Victoria" was really good also.

I went to RUSSEL for HAIR color. First of all he takes 6 hours just to color and highlight hair. Untop of it all when my hair was done the base was too dark and the highlights were copper-orange. He highlighted my hair half an inch below my roots so u saw a straight line across my hair of where my highlights began. Disaster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And when he blew out my hair it was extremly frizzy. ANd he loves to over charge you on purpose ..!! Worst hair dresser ever i don't recommend him to anybody.

Pros: nice salon and nice staff

Cons: Russel

I looked in the mirror and instantly calculated how long it would take to grow out. Chunks of my hair were chopped into layers with the promise that it would be "trendy and flattering." It wasn't. The layers were uneven, terribly proportioned, and looked like a feeble attempt to turn me into "art". I give the rest of the staff big applause for their smiles and helpful attitudes. But two thumbs down for the guy with the wild scissors.

I went to Cavale Tonuzi looking for a way to keep my growing hair looking healthy as I grew it out. Antonella was a welcome surprise! She gave me a very impressive cut which fell just right and that other stylists (my colorist) give me compliments on... and you know other stylists NEVER compliments others work unless they're really impressed. I give Antonella two thumbs up for cut, but don't expect miracles for color. My color with Cavale Tonuzi was drab, and had to be fixed by another salon (Christopher Stanley Salon... Natasha is great).
