Spend the extra money and go somewhere else – Well for starters the facialists hands smelled like cigarettes. In the "relaxation room" you could hear your facialist thread other peoples eyebrows while you are waiting for an extended period of time, so it was both not relaxing and rather rude. I guess you get what you pay for! In my case I need to go to the dermatologist because instead of caring for my skin it was simply irritated and now is red and swollen! I simply dont understand the great reviews I read.
5 Gold Stars! – My friends kept saying "You have to go to Praba!" I heard Prada and was confused - they're doing eyebrows now? After they laughed at me, I went. The girls are really lovely, not that phony salesperson stuff but sincere and very warm. Shayla did a beautiful job on my eyebrows and gave me a great shape. I did underarm waxing too and she took her time leaving no stray hairs behind. Highly recommend them!
Men's Facial – I was able to book a last minute appointment for a facial at Praba Salon on Friday. The facialist was friendly, accomodating and professional. The facial was incredible and the facialist's touch was so soothing and relaxing, it put me to sleep. I woke up to see and feel my face fresh and clean, and no redness or bruising after either. It was the perfect treat to start off the rest of my weekend.
Praba Salon is Amazing! – I don't have a lot of hair on my eyebrows and there are some gaps from waxing and over tweezing. But somehow the threaders at Praba manage to give me a great shape and arch. The transformation of my eyebrows is amazing! I always look fresher and leave extremely happy.
P.S. The directions citysearch has is wrong. Praba is closer to the 6 train at 96th Street.
Great Affordable Pampering – I love Praba Salon because it's close to my job, you get the best service and the prices are incredible. There's also no pretentious attitude whatsoever and you feel like they REALLY care about your needs. From threading to facials, I've always left extremely happy and that's why I'm a loyal customer of theirs.
I can afford to take care of my eyebrows and skin regularly now, and it has made a huge difference.
Excellent threading and waxing – I discovered Praba Salon while walking through the neighborhood last week. I went in for eyebrow threading and leg waxing. I liked that they don't charge an arm and leg for waxing, like other places in the area do. The waxing was less painful than other places I've been to and I think it has to do with the type of wax they use. I also got a beautiful arch and shape to my eyebrows. The girl was very friendly and took her time with my services, making sure I was happy with the results.
Just like family – I'm ashamed it's taken me this long to write a review about Praba since I've been going to them for about 4 years. I am moving out of New York in 2 weeks and I will miss them so much. They have been like family to me... probably sounds corny but it's true. They're giving me a free facial as a going away present!!! Aside from the warmth and generosity, I've gotten the best services here and I've done threading, waxing, facials and henna. Words can't adequately describe how wonderful they are, you just have to go and experience them for yourself. THANK YOU GIRLS FOR EVERYTHING!
A True Gem – I went to Praba Salon for threading because of a friend of mine wouldn't stop raving about them, and they more than lived up to the praise. The girls are very friendly and have a great rapport with their clients (and their kids who didn't want to leave!) and I was greeted just as warmly as a newcomer. I had my eyebrows done by Jiggi who was quick and super precise and I still can't believe it only cost $7. The place I used to go to charged $20 and required an appointment which I can't always foresee with my schedule. Honestly, I can't say the $20 place was any better. If anything Praba was much warmer and you don't feel like just another number.
Like no other – I walk past two other threading salons to go to Praba. There's no comparison with all these factories popping up everywhere! The place I went to by my school once, Eyebrow Express is like a school cafeteria. Loud, chaotic, rude staff. And then there's Praba, which is like eating at a quaint, family style restaurant. Very peaceful, friendly and great customer care. You decide which one is better.
Henna for Hair – I found out about henna for hair through a friend of mine who lives in California. It's a natural way to color grays and the henna treatment also leaves your hair super soft. I found Praba through the internet and was impressed by their great reviews. I also really liked that they were authentic with their services. The henna was applied in about 30 minutes, they wrapped it up and I went home. My hair is a little above my shoulder and it only cost $35. I was told to leave it in for a couple hours and then wash it out. I love the results! My greys are colored and my hair so shiny and healthy.
