Thick Black Girls Wax Too! – If you've ever had a Brazilian you know its not an easy experience!!! After having a horrible and discriminating experience at Diva Nails near West 4th I searched all over Brooklyn for a Spa that would make me feel comfortable and by chance I stumbled upon Magnolia. It may be small but they make you feel as if your their only client. Gosha is the best! She gives the best Brazilian and she's professional and kind! Quick, Clean and Painless!!!!!
You get what you pay for. – I went in for a brazilian and the waxer left a lot of wax on my kooch and didn't seem to care when I brought it up before leaving. No appologies or anything! She wasn't the most friendly either. I've had a lot of waxes in my day and nobody has ever left me in such a state of disorder! Other than that they seemed to have a large selection of nail polish and the place seemed clean.
First ever wax – I have considered getting waxed many times, but have always chickened out.
I picked this spot mainly because it was the first place I called that seemed pleasant on the phone AND seemed reasonably priced.
I was a little worried that they'd try to upsell me to the fancier Brazilian, but they didn't - I got the $37 version.
Okay, I'm not going to lie...it HURT. But I had expected it to be SO bad, that it seemed okay. And the woman talked me through it - warned me when it was going to be the worst and did it very quickly. I really appreciate it when people talk me through things I'm not entirely comfortable with!
The place is tiny and not fancy, but it's clean and the people are very friendly...
Finally! – I've been on the never-ending searchfor a great waxing place that is afforable. Finally found it! Sabina does an amazing job with brazillian bikini waxes. She is FAST, clean, does a fantactic job without having to go over the same spot more than once (we know how much fun that can be, right ladies?) ANd she's friendly and comfortable to be around. The space is a bit small, but the def. make the most of it. And at $37 for a brazillian, you can't beat it. Finally found my spot!
Good microdermabrasion experience, OK for manicure/pedicure – This was my first spa experience in Brooklyn as I just moved from Atlanta. I chose Magnolia because they offered the microdermabrasion service at a good price ($80 where most NY spas advertised around $120) and could fit me in on the same day I called. The place is very small, but was still OK. Sabina was very good and I enjoyed the service with her (excellent face massage techniques and I liked the organic products from Hungary.) Monika did a decent manicure and pedicure for me, pretty solid work. This is a no-frills sort of place, definitely not a luxury spa experience, but good for someone who wants a quick service and a decent price.
Best waxing anywhere!!! – WOW!!! What an amazing place.Its atmosphere is great the staff are wonderful and fun to be around.I came to get my wax done,I was a little nervous,because it was my first brazilian.But the lady Gosia took me in right away.She was kind and funny.Her work was fast and clean! will definetly be comming here for my waxes
These Reviews Seem Suspicious – I just checked this out an find it pretty weird that any criticism of this spa is met with so much contradiction and assertions that the reviews are coming from competitors. I also find it weird that so many of the positive reviews sound like they are written with the same grammar and adjectives used by the spa itself. Ahem. This comes across as very orchastrated to me and makes me distrust the good reviews. Now I will probably be denounced as a competitor... watch! As a prospective customer, I find that constructive criticism that isn't always argued with makes the good reviews seem more legitimate.
Loved it! Can't wait for my next appt. – I was a bit skeptical at first, you hear such horror stories about facials gone bad . Well this facial experience was awesome! as soon as I walked through the door I was greeted with a smile and escorted to a private room. Sabina, explained each step in her soft voice, I was so relaxed I really didn't want the facial to be over.
The facial placial! – I came here for waxing-- wonderful service--and when Roshi noticed my poor complexion, she urged me to come back for a facial. She was right about what an improvement I would see! I had an organic facial and an herbal peel. After one treatment I saw an amazing difference in my skin. Sabina took time and care with my face, and she was so sweet! I will definitely come back for follow up treatments.
great atmosphere, professional job – when I did my first nail-job at the magnolia, I knew that it's gonna be my place.
I'm the customer of Monika who makes great manicure and pedicure, You can always depend on her, she helps you pick the color that matches your style(it's raelly incredible) and makes you feel important and relax. She's also veeeeery funny (and other girls too). Every time when I'm there I got so much fun that I don't know when my 2 hours are gone. I want also say something about Malgosia who makes my eyebrows - Oh my God - she so gentle.(if want to have a natural looking eyebrow- go to her).
I really love that place, girls are really nice and friendly, and makes you feel like at home.
So if you want to have a great time and professional job done - go to magnolia,
(they have free candys too :))
