Very good facial and amazing experience.

Day Spa located conveniently near every subway line available in New York City was heaven sent. Now at first I was a bit hesitant about having a facial as I had heard horror stories. I decided to put all my fears aside and go through with it since my skin was in need of a good "tune up". When I first arrived at the location, which was easy to find, I felt as though I was transported to another place far far away from New York City. The decor, lighting, and overall feel of the establishment automatically put me at ease. Not to mention, the friendly receptionist at the front was very helpful from the minute I walked in. Now onto the facial itself: Gabriela explained everything she was doing while she did it and I found that very helpful. Towards the end of the process my face was coated in a mask with wonderful camphor sent and I can promise you I felt absolutely BRAND NEW once my facial was over. Upon check out, the receptionist showed me some of the products the specialist had used on me, which I did end up purchasing, such as Delarins cleanser, fruit toner and stronger toner . The specialist also came back out to explain why she recommended these products. From the owner to the staff Allure Day Spa is full of friendly professionals who offer you the amazing quality services you would expect from any high end spa in Manhattan. I plan on booking plenty more facials with them in the future.

Okay, So i've actually been coming to Allure for awhile now but only for waxing (which btw quick and less painful then most places and last really long). I went here the other day because i wanted a new hair cut. Previously i had long dark hair with shapless layers that made me look lifeless. No body or volume i hated it! Nubie was great from start to finish. I explained to her exactly what i wanted. I even showed her pictures i printed out from the internet. I'm naturally a curly girl (a very curly girl) but i like to where my hair striaght sometimes. its difficult to find a cut that looks good when straight or curly....But Nubie! found the cut! and gave me the CUT OF LIFE!!!! It's AMAZING how a simple hair cut can make you feel!

I was going on vacation and needed a spray tan last minute. Allure got me in with in 15 min when all the other places I called said they couldn't take me. The woman who sprayed me was really nice. Looked really natural. The tan lasted about a week, perfect for my vacation! I will go back before my next trip!!!

I came to Allure with 5 of my friends for a bithday party. What a great time we had!! The girls from the front desk Lana and Agnes helped us organize food and drinks and served it to everyone. We did not have to worry about anything but just to relax. The services were right on time and superb !!! Everyone was so professional and nice. Thank you! We are definitely coming back for another occasion!
