Great spa – Last time I went to a spa on the Upper West Side to get a brazilian I had a very bad experience and ended up at the hospital. The nurses that worked there recommended Harmony Skin Care and I'm SO glad I took their advice! The place was very clean (strict no double-dipping policy!) with relaxing music and the owner was very nice and always made sure that I was comfortable. I must say it was the less painful wax I have ever gotten in my life and it is from now on the only spa I will go to!
Excellent Facial – I followed my long time facialist, Iwona Pezacka to Harmony last year. Iwona has been doing my facials and waxing for the past 4 years. When I first started seeing her I had terrible breakouts - she taught me how to improve my diet and skin care regime and my skin cleared dramatically within months. I wouldn't trust my face and body to anyone else. She is knowlegeable and experienced. She is very good at deep cleaning and removing pus so you don't breakout after the facial like you can when problem spots are not addressed. Iwona has a good knowlege of special treatments and products and has always left me glowing.
Would recommend it – This is a new place,a little more than one year in the business. I had a facial with Aleta and talked with Alicia and loved it. I think that the Polish plp have the niche of the facial market. They are the best in my opinion! Aleta paid a lot of attention to my skin, made me feel comfortable and pampered. The place is clean, the girls were professional and there was no pushing for sales. The place is one block from Grand Central..convenient for plp who want to catch the train or subway afterwards. They have a big or small enough menu of services, a fact that makes me love them more. I don't agree with places that offer too much. I almost don't want to write the review because I don't want many plp to go there and ruin my next experience ..Hope that they will remain constant in their services and hospitality
It's a great spot to pop in for a mani/pedi. – I've been looking for a good salon in the neighborhood and I finally found one. Harmony Skin Care is fantastic. It's where I get all of my wax jobs done. Alicia is very knowledgeable and really listens to what your issues are and is able to focus on them. The prices are reasonable and the place is very clean. I love the atmosphere, it's relaxing and unpretentious. Just after one facial treatment, my face was bright and glowing. It was a wonderful and relaxing experience. I can't wait to try their chemical peel.
My new favorite spa – I got a great vibe from this place from the moment I walked in - it's so peaceful, cozy and tasteful, but what really really won me over was the warmness of the owner, Alicia, who did my facial. She's so professional but also caring and down-to-earth at the same time, I felt like I was at home. I had tried another 'upscalish' place before, and never returned because of how the iciness bordered on judgmentalism there, so I'm really glad I discovered the Harmony spa. Alicia took great care with my facial, and concluded the treatment by offering an AMAZING deal for the next appointments, so I'm looking forward to coming back!! Also - no 'product push', I think Alicia cared even more about my budget and what I could afford than I should :) Five stars!!
I felt so taken care of and the facial was excellent – Alicia was the owner and she did my facial, she was the sweetest most attentive women. I was pampered and well taken care of. She did lots of extractions which is what I need and so much more. I purchased a groupon promo which was 40% off the regular price. Amazing!!
Poor Customer Service – I had heard positive things about this place which is why I was excited when my friends bought me a gift certificate for a massage. Sadly, I have nothing but regrets since interacting with them. I would not recommend a massage at Harmony because they do not have therapists on weekends. I tried to book one on a Saturday and was falsely booked an appointment for a weekday. When I called to clarify that I had booked an appointment for Saturday the call was abruptly ended with the representative telling me I would receive a call right back. They obviously quickly tried to charge my credit card before calling me back to tell me that it was too late and that I had booked the appointment incorrectly. This company went about everything rather unprofessional and rude. The first time I called for my appointment the woman had even complained how tired she was, which was pretty weird to begin with. I'd definitely recommend passing on this place.
Best Brazilian wax – I work in the neighborhood and visited Harmony for the first time this past week because I was in need of a Brazilian wax. The salon was very nicely decorated and gave me a serene feel when I entered, so that was a good sign. Then Alicja did my waxing and she did an amazing job! I've been getting Brazilians for a while and was in need of a new place that was closer to work -- this was a great find...
Best new discovery – This is my first time at Harmony Skin Care and I was ready to experience something different. A friend recommended this place.
And then I came and met Alicja, one of the most fantastic women in the business. The place is absolutely amazing. The decor is superb and eventhough the place is boutique, it has an amazing sense of style and comfort. For those of us who like plush, this has everything, a very comfortable sitting area with clean and bright amenities. The hostess offers refreshment such as exotic teas, chocolates, but the pretzels are the most popular. When it comes to service, I was really impressed. You are greated by a very warm Alicja, who will make sure you received the best you can expect. The massage therapist had wonderful hands and I fell asleep, I was so comfortable. The beautiful thing about this place is that I was not disturbed afterwards and was left to rest a bit and collect myself before moving on to an amazing facial. I wish I could post my pictures because they did an amazing job. The Europeen Cleansing Facial did it for me and when it's time I will be sure to get the same. I'm a registered nurse so my hands are horrible, but a mani and pedi fixed that right up. I received an additional foot and hand massage and the products not only smell good, but they are also mindful of my sensitive skin. Unlike other places, Alicja and her ladies make sure to inquire about any other products you use so as to prevent any side effects or interactions. There is so much to say about everything because I did get the royal treatment and tried everything, from facial, massage, pedi and mani, but something I know I will definitely come for on a more consistent basis is waxing.
For those of us who are budget minded, the prices are great and the packages are even better. I generally don't write reviews because I'm the not type of person to rave about a new discovery, but this was definitely worth it and I wanted to share it!!!
Harmony is Perfection – This is one of those rare sanctuaries in New York: a place where you can really relax and pamper yourself. What's amazing is that it's in midtown, minutes from my office. Alicia has created a serene, special space to pamper her clientele--it's a place that puts those cookie-cutter spas to shame. But the real attraction is Alicia and her amazing staff. I've been seeing Alicia for years for waxing and I can confidently say that she is the best. Her care and artistry is unparalleled. (I even have a friend in Cleveland who insists on having Alicia do her brows whenever she's in town. She's that good.) As for her facials, they're *divine*!!
