                    I can't speak for the person who just wrote the review below but that is not my case. I am very greatful that I found this place. i was thinking about laser for a while but I was nervous and thanks to the prices that kind of kept me away. But Vada had gave me the free test patch with the consult. and I went for it! I can honestly say that after 5 treatments my hair is gone! and I don't even need the last treatment. Go to Emily that was my tech. highly recommend!

                    Yay! I found Gina! Gina is my laser tech- I used to see her at Rande Elaine, but the last few times i went in they claimed something crazy like "" she broke her back"" and gave me to someone else. This place is super sketchy so I got a lil suspicious and started looking around and here she is!! Gina is awesome, sweet personable and makes me feel totally comfortable ( even though were doing my brazilian) also shes super professional and concerned with a light touch. Do come to vada! its sooo much cleaner, prettier and more professional than any other place in the neighborhood! Instead of being worried about the pain of the treatment im looking forward to the pampering!

                    I visited Vada Spa for the first time- and the last- this evening. I asked the colorist for a semi-perm. color just to cover grays and add shine. I stressed to her that I wanted it to look very natural- keep my same shade, and it came out very brassy and red tinted. I cried all night, and washed it out as soon as I got home. I am going to a different salon tomorrow to get my hair Professionally dyed.\r\n\r\nThe bathroom upstairs was nasty: paper towels on the floor, dirty towels lying around, etc. \r\n\r\nSalon area was very dirty, too. The chairs were covered in hair and splattered with dye, dirty robes, and floor. \r\n\r\nThe waxing services were good; thank you, Mary!

                    Esfira is wonderful!! I was very nervous about doing this laser hair removal. Usually I stick to waxing for my legs and bikini. But the girls at the front desk kind of always mentioned to me about laser and how effective it is. So last month I decided to go for it and bought a package. I am on my second session and there is no way I can compare this to waxing. The pain is by far less and the hair is definitely less much much less, I can't wait for the sessions to end and to say good bye to waxing! The price of laser is a bit more then waxing, but now I see that it is definetly 150% worth it.

                    Linda was friendly and efficient and left me very smooth. It was as close to pleasant as a Brazilian wax could be! Also, I used a coupon and got an amazing deal. It was a pretty basic setup, but the quality far exceeded my expectations, given the low prices.\r\nThank you!

                    I went to Vada on my day off when I needed some pampering. I had a wonderful experience. Rena did an excellent job on my facial, I will go back every month. I got a massage from Eric, he was the most knowledgeable masseur I have ever had, I have a lot of injuries and he knew how to work with and around all of them, will definitely go back once a month as well. Alexa did my mani/pedi and she was wonderful as well, I have recommended all of them to my friends. I do agree that its odd to pay before your services I have never encountered that before, but the girls behind the counter were very sweet and even helped me pay so I wouldn't mess up my nails.

                    THE WORST SPA EXPERIENCE EVER
                    My boyfriend and I went for a couples massage this weekend which was booked a monthin advance and when we got there they said opps someone else was in the and it would be an hour wait because they over booked the room! The day before the massage I received a call from vada spa confirming my appointment. How does such a mess up happen! This was a gift for my boyfriend and we traveled a long way from connecticut for the couples massage. I was very upset and all they said was sorry there was nothing they could do because they over booked the room! They asked if we wanted to have the massage in seperate rooms ... WHAT!!? What is the point of couples massage then? I don't recommend this place to anyone, very poorly run! I have never had such a bad experience in my life and I will make sure that I tell as many people as I can NOT TO GO TO VADA SPA! I hoped this helped, there are so many spas in the city; why give your money to these people!

                    This spa was a unique experience. When you come in there is a pleasant waiting area where they serve free refreshments including free glasses of wine. \r\n\r\nAfter receiving a free patch test, I purchased a laser package of six. I then was taken to a room where the technician lasered my hair. The technician was experienced and pleasant. The space was spacious. The entire process went smoothly and there was no unpleasant surprises as in other spas. I expected the experience to be painful and was happy to see it was a painfree operation. I am now purchasing a gift card for Vada Spa for my husband.

                    The first time I went there I was a little concerned about how relaxed I could get. It was a little crowded and everyone was very fast paced. But I was pleasantly surprised. The treatments I received were wonderful and a very high quality for the price. The facials are great and the esthetician took time to be percise and gentle with my sensitive skin. The nail technician was pleasant and did a wonderful job as well.\r\nIts not a ritzy place and can be a little crowded but the service quality was amazing, especially for the price.\r\nI especially like that they are serious about their work and the quality of it, but keep it down to earth.

                    I have been to this place a few times before and felt that I should write about my experience. Both times I was here in mid-day about 2 or 3. I suppose at that time you can pretty much just come in get whatever you need and leave without any waiting. So far I have had a pedicure, manicure and on Tuesday, I had a facial with a haircut, style and blow-out. I really have no complaints and for the price I can definitely give this spot 5 stars. For me this place is extremely convenient, It is clean and the girls know what they are doing. Jenny who did my hair was wonderful (even though her English was ?not so good?).

I was concerned for 1 minute but somehow she was able to ease my concerns and I am really happy with her work. \r\n\r\nMy facial was with Samantha who is from the Caribbean. It was amazing. Samantha pointed out my ?problem areas? we did the mask and I really really am glowing. I feel like I have a new face. I can recommend this place, and have to my friends already. The service and what you ultimately pay is incredible and I will be coming here in the future.

                    I have been to this place a few times before and felt that I should write about my experience. Both times I was here in mid-day about 2 or 3. I suppose at that time you can pretty much just come in get whatever you need and leave without any waiting. So far I have had a pedicure, manicure and on Tuesday, I had a facial with a haircut, style and blow-out. I really have no complaints and for the price I can definitely give this spot 5 stars. For me this place is extremely convenient, It is clean and the girls know what they are doing. Jenny who did my hair was wonderful (even though her English was ?not so good?). She does speak Portuguese, Spanish and Russian. I was concerned for 1 minute but somehow she was able to ease my concerns and I am really happy with her work. \r\n\r\nMy facial was with Samantha who is from the Caribbean. It was amazing.

                    They didn't have any air conditioning when I went there. Aren't we going through a heat wave? Spa's are suppose to take you on a mini-vacation...This place was really muggy. Are they going green without ventilation? If so, they should go green the right way. Oh, and why would you yell at your worker, ""Jorge?"" Don't you have any shame in treating an employee in that manner whether they are a ""Jorge"" or an ""Amy?"" For having a big rainbow flag in the window, you seem quite intolerant.

                    I was super surprised at what a great facial I just received. Even more so was that it cost me HALF of what I would have paid at my regular place. Rena did a wonderful job explaining and even though I had the micro done before, this time my skin and face was glowing. I made my second appointment and I am so glad I took the chance to walk in. wonderful, wonderful, spa and I extremely highly recommend it to anyone....

                    We are visiting New York and come here every beginning of summer. The village is one of those places I enjoy especially this week. Anyway this place, vada is new since I didn't see it last year but I must say that, they really took care of us. I got a full wax done and my partner got the spa mani and pedi as well as a wax on his shoulders. The wine was a great touch and everyone was very nice, I will definitely be back next time and I can recommend this place to anyone.

                    As I entered the spa for my birthday brazilian wax I wasn't thrown back, it is a clean and tidy place but I just imagined it different with the title Spa on it. The person who greeted us at the desk wasn't all that jolly, but the woman who performed my brazilian was sweet. I left in pain and a bit satisfied from the place, but once i got home to check on my nether regions it was completely irritated I felt the pain!!!! It was horrible I imagined it to be nice and smooth what I got was bumpy red and swollen! I am not satisfied at all!!! Makes me realize that I should have sprung for the more expensive brazilian else where. If you want your down there to be all burned and peeling i suggest you go to Vada... I wasn't the only one either I went with my cousin that day and she had the same complaint, we didn't have a good brazilian experience. There's no way we're going back there again!!

                    I don't know about the negative responses written previously, but my experience was nothing but FANTASTIC. The people working there are extremely nice and constantly checked that my manicure was coming out the way I wanted it to look. One time I walked in during a busy period and was told my wait would be 20 minutes--and it was just that- no longer than the 20 minutes they promised- which is rare among salons which usually say 5 minutes when the wait is 30 min or more. \r\n\r\nMost importantly, the WAXING was SUPER CLEAN. The waxer wore gloves and didn't double dip her sticks. I lived in that area for 4 years and I think for the quality, price and cleanliness this place can't be beat. \r\n\r\nI've been there several times already and I'll keep coming back.

VADA has everything- great products, great ambiance, and great service. Living in the area for a number of years, i havent found another place with comparable service for the great prices.\r\nHIGHLY RECOMMENDED, I have already turned a number of my friends and colleagues on to VADA, all who thanked me for finding this place!!

                    I was looking for a less expensive alternative to my usual eyebrow wax and decided to give Vada Spa a try when I saw the ad in Metro NY. On May 24th I had a pedicure and an eyebrow waxing. The pedicure was fine and uneventful, which I fully expected for the price. \r\nThe eyebrow wax was another story. I told the aesthetician that I had an eyebrow waxing the week prior but that I wasn't satisfied with the results. She just nodded her head and proceeded. I got some serious burns from the procedure. It really hurt for som e 30hrs. While I waited for the pedicure to dry, I told them about the pain and they put some ointment on it. I asked for ice and they supplied it. They also said that my skin was just sensitive due to waiting only a week between waxings. I do wish I had been told that PRIOR to the waxing. I didn't know since I had never done it a week apart. The next morning a number of large open wounds (or maybe scabs? It hurt too much to touch) were visible all around my eye area. I wore shades all day and used Neosporin. Friends asked what the hell happened to me.\r\nI emailed pictures of the damage to Vada. They wrote back apologetically, offering me a refund and a complimentary eyebrow waxing with their sensitive skin wax (which is one of the reasons I decided to try them). I got my refund but can't see myself going there for another waxing.\r\nThey were friendly and courteous. Though I think the title ""spa"" is excessive. I expect more when I hear that word used.

                    Got my hair removed from my legs for the first time using a laser and it was amazing. I will never go back to waxing. Esfira was wonderful and I highly recommend her. I had a coupon from another place near by when I picked up the voice and found this place. Honestly, I went in by accident as I was going to use the coupon at the other place. I got a manicure while I kind of checked the place out and the girl at the front mentioned about laser. We talked and she said that they accept other coupons. I got the consultation and I really wasn't sure. But after a little patch piece they did I went for the whole thing. I don't understand the other reviewers; maybe they had a bad day or something. But I will definetly be back and already told my friends to come by.

                    So here's the lowdown. Yeah, a lot of what has been said is true- the ambiance is hospital-like, the staff is a bit aloof, pushy at times, etc. BUT the prices really are great and the results of the services are great. Rina is an amazing aesthetician for a facial, she is knowledgeable and will do wonders for your skin. The place promises and delivers, at least for facials, though it doesn't have its act together 100% on timeliness or customer service. It is nowhere near 5 star service, I wonder if they really do have the amount of business they say they do, but at least you'll get a great deal for Manhattan.

                    I visited the spa for the first time this week and loved the experience. I got a couple of treatments done and was very satisfied. The girl who did the facial for me (I don't remember her name) did such a thorough job plus she gave my face a soothing massage which not all facialists do for some reason. I also had a massage and body scrub with Ivan who was just so nice. I had my massage upstairs (didn't even know they had a downstairs like the other girl said) and I was given a robe lol. The place is clean and trendy and for the prices you can't go wrong. I'm definately going back.

                    A friend and I decided to come here for spa week for a massage. We figured since it was new it couldnt' be that bad. WARNING, this is a nail salon not a spa. Upon check in, I was asked for the payment prior to the massage which is unusual for spa. A masseuse had walked me to the massage room, which was downstairs of the nail salon, since they do not have a locker room. As I was changing and about to go under the blanket someone walked in on me and saw me in the buff. The person quickly closed the door. I was horrified and jumped under the blanket. The person didn't even have the courtesy to knock first. Anyways, five minutes later my masseuse comes in and doesn't even apologize even after being told what just happened. She then proceeds to ask me if I have anything to tie my hair because ""it will always get in her way."" Of course she was annoyed that I didnt. I've been to many salons and they always have a locker room and never have they asked me to tie my hair back. During the massage all i heard was the people upstairs in the nail salon walking back and forth and the workers speaking very loudly right outside my door. Not a very relaxing atmosphere, it was so bad that my masseuse had to stop, open the door and shush her coworkers. Someone again opened the door while i was getting the massage and quickly closed it. This time the person only saw my back but again how rude is that?! After the horrible rubbing had ceased, the masseuse had asked me if I would like to take a hot shower or be wiped down with towels. I asked where the shower was and she told me it was upstairs and that they didnt have bathrobes that i can wear. So I really didn't have a choice but to be wiped down with a towel. This is absolutely the WORST place I have ever been to. The best thing the owner did was to offer 15% off the next service,saying that they were so busy because of spa week. (There was only one other person there aside from me and my friend.) Avoid at all costs.

                    They gave me a nice massage on my feet with the chair massaging my back. That was great. But what I really liked was the pedicure. You should have seen my feet. I had 2 ingrown toe nails and the little black fuzz that collects in between my toes, not a pretty site. Rima (I'm sure, closed her eyes and prayed) took my feet and a short 40 minutes later made my feet look like movie stars. AND it only cost me $22. I will definitely be back, and I hope to have Rima do my feet now that they are so pretty

                    I found this spa through spa week and made an appointment for their 60 minute massage. At first I was not that comfortable because it seemed that there was to much going on and I had to wait almost 30 minutes. But the massage with Ivan was great and just what I needed. I took their menu and their prices seemed really reasonable so I decided to get the chocolate facial done. I thought that I had to make an appointment but the front desk took me in and apologize for the wait explaining the ""spa week"" situation. Clara gave me some super advise on what to do with my dry skin that I didnt think would work, but one week after the facial my skin looks better then ever. I will definitely be back when their outside deck opens for the summer. Great looking place, great knowledgeable people +++
