Terrible Experience – I had a pretty horrible facial here. The salon is dirty, and I was placed in an uncomfortable chair on the street level room- don't know where the "spa" room is, but I was not there. The woman was nice, but everything felt dirty..the steamer to open my pores looked like it had old water in the bottom..the TV was blaring...it was really just not a pleasant atmosphere.
The facial was ok, but , she didn't avoid my eye area at all and rubbed everything that she put on my face directly on my eyelids and into my eyes! It was horrible! My vision was blurry and my eyes were irritated all day.
She also put rubbing alcohol on a paper towel and applied it directly to my skin, and at times right over my nose so that I was breathing in the fumes. She didn't seem to have much skill.
Will never go there for a facial again! Beware!
It was probably the worst facial I have ever had.
Meticulous threading – I've been going here for about 4 months now and I absolutely love it. My eyebrows have been perfectly shaped every single time. They are extremely meticulous and thorough with their work. They're also very warm and friendly with their customers. I've been to high and low end places that could take lessons about customer service from these ladies.
Glowing Skin, Facials! – A friend went in to Praba Salon for a facial and her skin was amazing! Her skin is pretty good to begin with but sometimes the texture looks a little rough. She couldn't stop saying how soft her skin felt and it "breathed" better. That was enough proof for me and no more excuses like I couldn't afford it cause Praba's prices are really good (which I'm ashamed now to say was part of the reason I didn't believe they would really do anything). I get breakouts sometimes on my forehead and chin area that I'm very self conscious about. I could tell the difference immediately after! My skin feels so good and soft and it actually glows. My friend is going in next because she's so impressed with my results.
Went in very scared Left VERY HAPPY! – i am so happy with my experience at Praba Salon. i never did anything to eyebrows before but tweeze here and there. my friends had really bad experiences with waxing and other threading places so i just left mine alone. i was so scared that i'm sure i was annoying. but the girl was so sweet who made me feel calm. she told me what she thought would be best for my face and brows before starting. after she showed me one to make sure i was happy. i was sooooooo happy! she finished the other and i couldn't stop looking at the mirror. i thanked her over and over again and left feeling happy and beautiful. i never thought you could do this much with eyebrows or it would make such a difference but it does!
Great service, comfortable environment – I live near Praba Salon and am so happy that it's a part of my neighborhood! I regularly go to Praba for waxing and eyebrow threading. Staff is friendly and respectful and I can nearly always get an appointment within 24-48 hours of when I call. Eyebrow threading does not require an appointment, which allows me to drop in when I can -- you can't beat that.
Mask & Massage, Highly Recommend – Had the sandalwood mask and an hour massage at Praba Salon and left feeling like I was floating on air. Rejuvenated. The mask smelled heavenly and my face felt so smooth that I couldn't stop touching it. And the massage therapist worked out all the kinks in my neck and back that had been wearing me down for weeks. I received a free eyebrow threading at the end which gave new shape and life to my overplucked brows. I absolutely recommend Praba Salon.
Threading is great for sensitive skin – My skin is super sensitive. Before I discovered threading I used to suffer from the "JUST GOT WAXED" redness on my eyebrows and upper lip. Ladies who've experienced this know how embarassing it is. To make matters worse I would get these little bumps all over the areas. My skin kept reacting badly to the wax. Thank God for threading. Actually thank God for good threaders. The best I've gotten hands down is at Praba Salon. They know what they'e doing, take their time, they listen and the salon is clean. After a few trial and errors at other salons, I can tell you not all salons or threaders are like this.
Beautiful threading and henna – I went to Praba Salon after reading their review by Shecky's. The beautician gave me a beautiful shape to my eyebrows and encouraged me to keep them full. (Other places I've been to have overthreaded or overwaxed.) Another beautician did an amazing henna design on my hand and lower back. It looks very artistic and authentic. She did it totally freehand and is very skilled. I highly recommend Praba Salon if you're looking for a great place to get your threading or a henna done. I've haven't seen better quality or prices anywhere else.
They're the BEST! – I've been going to Praba for about a year for threading and recently got treated to a facial for my birthday. First let me say that I don't know what that poster below is talking about. I've never had anyone that smelled like smoke or that was rude?? They're sooo friendly there! My facial was wonderful and my skin felt baby soft afterwards. It was so relaxing and I felt the knots get worked out of my shoulders. Then of course, I got my eyebrows threaded (upstairs mind you.. it's not in the same room) which of course was great, beautiful arch that I never got anywhere else. Which is why I'm a loyal customer of theirs. I highly recommend you go and try their threading and facials.
Visiting from Ireland – We had the Hydrating Facial and the Aromatherapy Acne Facial at Praba Salon. We thought the facial was lovely and relaxing, we fell asleep. Relaxing music, absolutely lovely, will recommend to our sister and friends here. We also love our eyebrows, like the results of the shape. Initially it was a little uncomfortable as it was our first time, but overall it was great. Thank you.
