This place is unbelievable. Two women work here and they’re both spectacular, so you really won’t go wrong with either. I get my Electrolysis done here and frankly, it’s one of the best places in the city of the 5+ I’ve tried. It’s clean and more so, both of them are so professional and respectful and they clearly both know and love their craft.

Laser Hair Removal Review: So, first. I've been going to Maya for I think almost 10 years now...but I recently decided to try laser, and it CHANGED MY LIFE. Esfira is amazing, she breaks everything down for you and explains what's going on. It isn't one of those med spa places where they make you buy 100 sessions. I was done with underarms in 3 sessions, and basically done with Brazilian in 4. Sure, it hurts, but Esfira is really great at managing your expectations so you actually think it hurts WAY more than it really does :) Thanks to Esfira and Maya for radically changing my life! I'm so happy I made the investment :)

I have been seeing MAYA for electrolysis at Esfir and I am delighted with the results.    I believe it has been almost 100 percent effective.  I have to come less frequently now and eventually believe I will not have to come at all possibly.   I have had electrolysis before and was never satisfied with the results.   I recommend MAYA without reservations.   The office is also very hygenic (clean) which is important, appointments are easy to schedule and the front desk is very professional and helpful.

I never write reviews but I felt compelled to about this place.  They were unfriendly which I can deal with if I am getting a good job done.  I told the woman I wanted my lip and chin done with electrolysis.  she was more concentrated on my peach fuzz on my cheeks which I have never noticed.  I allowed her to do it but I told her I rather the hair on my lip and chin.  She said that was done so she was going to concentrate on my cheeks (which were never an issue)...anyway... once done I was all bumpy and red on my cheeks.  she said this would go away in  10 minutes.  Now I have broken out on all over my face and I look ridiculous!!!  And worse of all the areas I asked to be cleared still have long dark hairs.   I will never go  back to this place.  I am very angry with the job that was done.  I felt that my was dismissed with my questions and they did whatever they wanted.  This led to me having huge bumps on my face in areas that were not an issue and hair left on areas that were an issue!

Was able to make a same day appointment easily through their website. They are highly knowledgeable in regards to hair and waxing. I got the Brazilian and the lady gave me very informative tips pertaining to my "problems" (ingrown hairs, uneven growth, etc.). The location is very convenient and price cheaper than most places I've been. Highly recommend.

Five stars can't do justice for the waxing wonders Maya provides. If you haven't been to Maya or Esfir, you're missing out on the best waxing experience! She is your GO TO person for any waxing needs, highly recommend her braziling wax. She is fast, professional, pleasant, caring, gentle, and ensures you're comfortable every step of the way. You will feel clean and sexy walking out of there. I was referred to Maya by a friend four years ago and I will not trust any of my body parts to anyone else.  Esfir salon also has a great atmosphere, you will feel relaxed and well taken care of. They always accommodate me on the same day and for that I'm always grateful as I have a full work and school schedule, I normally don't like to book appointments ahead of time but I've never had an issue getting an appointment booked the same day or even within an hour/two hours of me placing a call. Staff are pleasant, professional, and helpful. If you're a busy person and need a reliable, courteous and highly experienced waxer than Maya is your person and Esfir salon is the place to go. Great prices and services, also got laser treatment on my lower legs and underarms, I believe I only had 3-4 treatments and my underarms feel like a baby's bottom, my legs are just unbelievable too. Highly recommend Esfir for any laser needs as well. Thank you Esfir!!

I have been going to Esfir for 6 months now and was referred Maya's services by my sister. I had my first bikini wax here and I've been a customer ever since. Maya talks toy through everything that she's doing and always checks to make sure your hair and body are doing what they're supposed to do. I've never had to wait more than 5 minutes if she was running over time with anther customer. They also give special discounts if you sign up for emails. I highly recommend Esfir for waxing services.

I am so grateful to have found this salon through a Living Social deal and will definitely keep going back in the future. I had originally booked an appointment for another day, but because I had an out-of-town visitor unexpectedly drop in, I had to postpone my original appointment. Diana the receptionist was very patient, professional and understanding and she was able to cancel my appointment without an issue. I finally found a small window of opportunity in my hectic schedule to drop in, so I was able to use their efficient online appointment booking tool to schedule my appointment and within 1 hour was in and out of the salon! Maya works quickly to minimize the pain though is extremely exacting and gets every hair! She is truly a talented aesthetician, making the client feel at ease and she also shared some valuable information about upkeep between waxes without pressure or upsetting of products. Another aspect of great importance is cleanliness, and I observed this place to be clean, using all new products and she did not double dip. I highly recommend this salon, and from my very positive experience, Maya, for any and all waxing needs. I look forward to seeing her for my next appointment!

I've been to Esfir a couple of times now and have been really pleased with the waxing - highly recommend if you are pregnant. She was quick, professional and pleasant and she took special care when it came to comfort and not tensing the stomach, etc. Ive had leg and bikini waxes which were excellent. For eyebrow threading I would say it's fine for a basic touch-up, but if you're used to more attention to angles, arches and that 'just-so' finish, perhaps not this place. Otherwise, waxing was perfect!

I can not begin to give enough credit to Maya who is beyond a MASTER of her craft!! 5 stars is an understatement and the best part is that it is a quick walk from my job! Hallelujah to that and I will be coming again and again to see Maya. If you have not booked an appointment with her, you have never experienced an out of this world wax job!

MAYA IS HERE! I followed her here after her departure from another salon. She is hands down the best wax and electrolysis professional in the city. I moved to DC and would still only get waxed and treatments when in NYC and I could see Maya. She's super professional, fast, efficient and doesn't double dip. She talks you through the treatment and makes you feel really at ease. ESFIR seems small but the treatment rooms are quite large. There were a few moments during my treatment that I could hear the sounds of the city outside but it's in midtown Manhattan so that's to be expected. Regardless, it's very clean, easy to find and super cute. Like I said, they have Maya and I will be continuing to come here just for her.

At first, I really liked Esfir... even though I had to wait three months for an appointment, even though she's ONLY available on Saturdays and Sundays. I liked her because she SEEMED professional and like she really cared about what she was doing. I was wrong. I was very, VERY wrong. Esfir has called me to re-schedule appointments last minute. Scheduling ANY appointment with her is a HUGE pain because of her lack of availability (even though she'll try to blame it on you). Also, even though it took months to book any appointment, she wouldn't let me use the rest of my sessions because it was one year past the date it was redeemed.. now, I admit, I had to reschedule a few times, due to working both days that she's actually open. Sorry, but some people have to work on the weekends... iit's not my fault that she's so backed up and can't schedule her own clients. and I need to wait months to see her... but apparently, this is my fault. I was flabbergasted when she told me that I'd have to buy a package for the rest of my sessions, since the voucher had expired. However, I felt that it just wasn't worth the fight, because I then saw her in a very different light... I also should mention that she got *VERY* unprofessional and personal with me, telling me that my boyfriend would amount to nothing (this is word for word- she said that "military men are happy settling for very little," and that "I can expect to wait 5-6 years before he even proposes to me.") So, naturally, I left highly irritated and emotional. I consider Esfira a very toxic human being with bad intentions. If you do use her services, be prepared for a insensitive, unprofessional "nurse" hidden behind a seemingly nice person.

Esfira was extremely difficult and shaddy - it took me almost 3 months to schedule an appointment.  The day of the appointment I spent a lot of time carefully shaving and when I got there she told me she would not work on an area that had ever been lasered before (which I had not been told prior to the appointment.)  I had purchased a loot from lifebooker and they had never mentioned this policy when I bought the voucher and SHE had never mentioned it when I booked the appointment.  It really seemed like a bait and switch - she wanted people to come in with a voucher and then not take the voucher and up-sell them into buying services at retail. Of course, the whole thing was suspect, because I was supposed to have an approx. hour long appointment (I was doing upper and lower legs, Brazilian and underarm.)  However, as I left, 10-15 minutes after my scheduled appointment time, I saw her call in her next client who was already waiting in the waiting room.  It appears that she never expected to honor my appointment and thus wasted my time by pretending to give me one.

I had a great experience at Esfir! Esfira, who performed laser procedure was amazing! She's very thorough in explaining the procedure, she is very gentle and kind. I highly recommend her services!

I went there for the first time this morning. I dont really know what to say... it was kind of surreal, although not necessarily in a bad way. The girl working there told me EXACTLY the same that the previous review describes. She didnt want to treat an area that was previously treated with laser (lower half of my legs). I had bought a coupon in Lifebooker for 12 sessions and she told me to call them back and get the refund. I asked her about the upper half (never treated before) and she told me that my hair there was too thin and not dark enough to be treated (which I think its not true, but she's the expert, I guess it looks dark enough to me). I asked then about the inner thigh (there I can assure, my hair is DARK and is THICK) and she said that was true but it was stupid to spend 12 sessions there because with a good laser 3 sessions would be enough, and she didn't want to take advantage of me. I think she was straight and honest, she gave me explanations about my hair cycle and all these laser treatments that we don't usually receive in other places, and I appreciate that. She definitely doesn't want to scam costumers, which makes me think whether in other places they just do any treatment, even if it's not gonna work', just for the money. However, she was kind of rude to me, telling me that costumers have to do our own research before acquiring these coupons... well, I try to do that but I'm sorry if it's not enough and I'm not an expert on laser treatments, that's not my job! anyway... if you want to treat an area that was already treated, forget about this place. For laser hair removal in areas never treated before, I think it's a good option (they have Cygnosure, it's a good machine). She is a nurse and my feeling is that she looks at costumers more like patients rather than costumers, but I also think she's kind of rude when giving is explanations. I appreciate her honesty overall, she could have taken my money and do the treatment anyway, maybe with bad results or skin damage. But all this could also been explain in the webpage or in Lifebookers, in the end I wasted part of my day going there for nothing. Also, she ONLY works in the weekends, that was OK for me because I can only do these things Sat and Sun (I work the rest of the days) but this also should be specified somewhere, might be hard to schedule an appointment.

I just bought a laser deal on Lifebooker only to discover that the provider has ONE opening at the end of May, after which she is going away for two months!  And she only works on Saturdays and Sundays, which would have been useful information to include in the description.  I can't speak to what kind of service she would eventually have provided but I think it's unprofessional to accept money for a service you can't possibly provide in a reasonably timely manner.

Yikes. I just tried to book an appointment because I had a bought a package deal on line for Esfir, for a mix and match of 12 sessions. It was the most bizarre thing. She told me she could not help me because I had already had laser done before. When I said I wanted my legs done which had not had work done, she said she was not willing to do this because it would only take 4 sessions and I would lose money. I explained I wanted both my upper and lower legs done and I'm sure I could use a large portion of the sessions purchased, she proceeded to tell me she couldn't give me laser because I have blond hair. Which I never said I had (and I don't have). She then basically said she could not do caucasians!! I explained it would be better if she just came out and said she wasn't honoring the coupon instead of feeding me bull, as I have had laser done before and it was very successful. I guess if you want overpriced treatments go for it. But don't expect her to honor any package deals.

I am the biggest baby when it comes to pain.  I can honestly say that I felt almost none.  I almost fell asleep when Esfira was doing my lower legs.  i had underarms, lower legs and bikini done but as long as the cold, cold air was on me, I was so fine.  I felt maybe five ouches but never would I go back to waxing..ever...  This was 100% less painful than waxing.  The electrolysis was also very do-able. I cant say I was in pain at all.  Really remarkable for hair removal!  Esfira is a nurse, for starters and  a complete professional and knows her craft.  I felt very comfortable with her.   i only wish she was in Queens but the parking wasnt really bad at all.

I'm hesitant to review this place because it's already hard enough to get an appointment, but: Taryn is an eyebrow genius. She will shape your brows perfectly, in ways you never knew was possible. Her eyebrow aesthetic is clean, natural, not too "done" and perfectly flattering for your face. I've been a client of hers since she was at Anastasia, and I would follow her anywhere -- no one has ever been able to make my eyebrows look as good, and I've tried salons and threading joints all over the city. Of course, it's not cheap at $30 a pop. However: You wear your eyebrows every single day. Of all the places to save money, your face is probably not the best one (who ARE you women who get your brows waxed at the nail salon? WHY would you do that?), and a flattering brow shape can make a world of difference. Also, Taryn shapes your brows so naturally and perfectly that self-maintenance is easy -- so it's an every-six-weeks expense, not a weekly one. Bottom line: Taryn is a gift to womankind. You have never fully understood how important eyebrows are until you visit her. She is the best. I thank Jesus for her existence every time I leave her salon. So book now. Just please don't get in the way of my appointments.
