Best Wax in the West Village!

I am have been a regular at Avalon for the past two years. I swear by Agata's Brazilian wax! I have always found the receptionists friendly and accommodating, whether in person or over the phone. I have never had to wait more than a few minutes for a service (with drink and good magazine in hand!). I have never had a problem with any of the employees or the managers. I think the other reviewer must have scheduled her massage service as part of their Groupon when I know they were swamped trying to accommodate all of the clients. I would highly recommend Avalon.

I did not have a good experience with this “Spa”. I wanted to get a massage and when I got there they gave me a male masseur, when I asked to have a female masseur they couldn’t accommodate me. The manager was very RUDE. I lost my massage because I wasn’t comfortable with a male masseur and they wouldn’t give me a different appointment. When calling the spa they should ask if you for a preference. They did offer me another service in the salon, but I rather loose my money then go back and be rude to by the manager

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
