Best pedicure 2/26/2008

After reading such mixed reviews, I was a little nervous booking an appt here, but it's so convenient to my office, I had to try it. The salon is beautiful. And I got a fantastic pedicure from Basia. She is really nice, and really efficient! I got a thorough treatment without feeling rushed. The pedi room seats two so next time, I will bring a friend, for sure. more

worst facial 1/20/2008

i had the worst facial experience here. The facialist even had to check her chart/notes to explain to me what's wrong with my skin etc. not professional or knowledgeble enough. pretty bad extraction job, after the facial i only felt that i've wasted money on nothing. my skin is the same before and after the facial. Pros: atmosphere Cons: unprofessional service more

Never again 5/22/2007

I stopped into Artista for a quick fringe trim. I wear my bangs long and in my eyes and get them trimmed all the time. Around the city it usually costs me about $12 bucks at most. A 3 minute fringe trim here cost me $20 plus tip! I couldn't believe it. Not to mention, she cut bangs wayyy to short and now I look like a Dutch 6 year old boy. The staff looked as if they had all taken the train in from Long Island and were totally out of touch with Manhattan style. I will never go here again, and suggest you stay away. Pros: I learned my lesson quick. Cons: Trashy staff, over priced more

Bliss 10/17/2005

I had a facial and my friend had the hot stones massage. Be ready to do nothing afterwards because you will feel great! my facial was almost 2 hours and I was charged the hourly rate. The ambience was great and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Great experience!!! Pros: ambience, staff, relaxing Cons: you have to leave :>) more

""Artist"" was a no-show 9/13/2005

I scheduled a henna tatoo for a friend's b-day present. We were on time for our appointment but the henna ""artist"" was more than 55 minutes late...we were walking out as she was walking in. What a waste of time! What should have been a fun time, just ended up pissing us off. Even worse, management did nothing to compensate us as we sat there for almost an hour. Don't waste your time! Cons: Lousy service, Poor management, Unreliable more

Terrible haircut 6/9/2005

I chose this salon b/c it's right by my office, the reviews were decent, and b/c I was in a bind (ie desperately needed my haircut). For the amt of money, personality/skill of my stylist, and overall customer service, I would have been better at supercuts! You don't mind spending $100 for a haircut if it's something great, I think my hair looked worse after the cut! I would rather go to my own wedding with ratty, uncut hair then go here. Then when I went to pay, the girl at the desk kept up her personal call until i interupted her to ask if she was the correct person taking payment, oh she was, she told me it would just be one more minute. This place is wful, thank god I have my great stylist to continue going to. I defintiely was not swayed to start going to Artista! Cons: terrible cut, no skill, rude employees more

UNEXPECTED IN NYC 6/27/2003

THIS PLACE WAS TERRIFIC. THE STAFF IS FABULOUS YET COZY - NO PRETENSE HERE. CAPUCCINO, CHANDELIERS, THIS IS THE ""BEHIND THE VELVET ROPE"" OF SALONS! I'VE HAD AN UP-DO BY RAY THAT STAYED ALL NIGHT INTO THE MORNING, HIGHLIGHTS BY VITA - STUNNING! I LOVE THE MANICURES HERE. I'LL WAIT WEEKS TO SIT IN TATIANA'S CHAIR. MY BEST FRIEND ALSO WENT HERE FOR HER BRIDAL PKG. AND WAS VERY PLEASED. SHE REC'D HAIR SERVICES WITH PAOLO AND A MASSAGE FROM JOSEPH... HOT! .... WOULDN'T GO ANY PLACE ELSE. (THIS IS A ""SEX IN THE CITY"" SECRET!) more

A great gift 2/21/2003

I gave my sister a gift certificate for a massage at Artista (using Citysearch.com), and wasn't sure if she would like it. As she left, she called me and gave it rave reviews. She said the atmosphere was beautiful, the staff was warm & friendly and Sage, the massage therapist, did an incredible job on her aching back! Pros: atmosphere, great treatments, friendly more

Paolo's the best 1/30/2003

I didn't realize how bad my hair looked until AFTER Paolo cut it. He did such a fantastic job that I was shocked by how much better it looked after he was done. Pros: easy accessibility, friendly & courteous, professional more

Just another facial 11/15/2002

I had a facial there once. The experience was okay; nothing really stood out. For the price and service, I would rather go to other spas in the City where the place, people and service make me feel more comfortable and relaxed (I'll be respectful and not name other spas I DO recommend!). So if you are looking for a facial for ""routine cleaning"", sure, go there, or anywhere for that matter. But if you're looking for the luxurious spa experience, don't expect it from Artista. more

good facial 10/30/2002

the facial here improved my skin a lot...i had a special which included a facial, microdermabrasion and some kind of multi-vitamin treatment with a high frequency stimuli at the end. the microdermabrasion was a little uncomfortable b/c unlike other spas...this one uses a vacuum like wand and you can feel your face being sucked in. but overall...it improved the quality of my skin...and i go back every other week to get the high frequency treatment. more

OVERPRICED AND PAINFUL 10/10/2002

THE BRAZILIAN THERE WAS THE MOST PAINFUL I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED. I WENT WITH A FRIEND AND WE WERE BOTH MISERABLE. THE WAX TOOK A VERY LONG TIME..I THINK SHE WAS NEW AND DIDN'T KNOW WHAT SHE WAS DOING...GO TO DYANNA SALON A FEW BLOCKS A WAY. IT'S ABOUT HALF THE PRICE, FASTER AND LESS PAINFUL!!!! more

Shhh! Artists's the Best! 7/30/2002

I first treated myself to Artista on my birthday. Now I go there regularly. Paolo is a hair maestro, Ivana gives the best eyebrow wax I have ever experienced, and Angel is an angel at the shampoo sink! (Of course, don't tell anyone or this place will get packed and I'll never get appointments!) Pros: Efficient staff, Fabulous ambience, Prompt attention more

Orgasmic pedicure! 7/26/2002

The pedicures at Artista are among the few in the city that are actually worth more than their price. the massage, the soak, the polish--it is all perfect and your toes look great for weeks and weeks. Treat yourself to it. more

I HAVE NEVER BEEN IN A DAY SPA SO RELAXING AND BEAUTIFUL LIKE THIS IN MY LIFE. EVERYONE IN THIS DAY SPA WAS SO PLEASANT & HELPFUL. EVERYTHING RAN ON TIME & THEY EVEN SERVED ME A CAPPUCINO, THAT WAS DELICIOUS. I HAD GREAT SERVICE AND I AM DEFINITLY REFERRING ALL MY FRIENDS TO COME HERE! Pros: WELL PRICED, PERFECT more
