Reading reviews are confusing, some people rave and others not so much. $42 for a Brazilian is apparently a steal. My first time so I went by the reviews. Yes, it's quick and super no-fills. Yes it hurt, but that's expected given the location... but dude, she ripped skin off and days later, ingrown hairs galore. Not pleased at all.

I've been a client for over 25 years(!) . Come Saturday morning, I look forward to relaxing with my favorite ladies for all my beauty needs. I get the best manicures, pedicures and waxing in the city. Yaffa is awesome, but you can't miss with anyone else. These women are professional, courteous and efficient. After a few visits, you feel like family and you are treated as such. You won't be disappointed! Make sure you ask for their card where you can get a freebie after 9 paid manicures. A real gem in the City.

The staff here was extremely professional, and the quality of service was unmatched. I haven't had a spa experience like this ever before, and I will continue to come back. If you're looking for a new spa, facials, manicures, pedicures and/or Brazilian waxing, let the people at Dyanna's take care of you. You'll be verrrry :)
I have been going to Dyanna's for a few years, and have frequented many different waxing salons in the past so I have a good perspective. The ladies there are so nice and always willing to accommodate. Ask for Yaffa--the Brazilian bikini is $40, and SUPER quick. Recently someone gave me a gift certificate to Completely Bare, and I was shocked that they normally charge $75 for what should take 10 min at Dyanna's but took 45 min there. A total waste of money and time in my mind. I'll keep returning to Dyanna's!

After trying many places in NYC, Dyanna's is simply the best. I have done all types of waxing here: Brazilian, Full Leg, Under Arm, etc.
Yaffa is incredible. You barely know what is happening and you are done. You can be in and out in 10 minutes. She is experienced, clean, and knows exactly how to ease your mind through this potential awkward/painful process.
The price is unbeatable. No other place in NYC gives you the service, price, and results that Dyanna's does. The hair grows back thin and barely noticeable.
I recommend Yaffa to all of my friends. She is by far the best wax I've ever had! I'm moving away for a while, but I will always come back and make an appointment here. I can't imagine anyone being any better.
Make an appointment! Whether it is your first time or 200th time, this place is perfect.

I work near this place, so I usually stop in during my lunch break for a wax. Yolante is awesome: extremely nice, extremely quick, and she's very friendly and talkative so the process goes by even faster. Their pricing is very reasonable and affordable (currently $36.75 for a bikini wax), and I'm usually in and out of there within 15 minutes or less. The only issue some people may have is that the place is seriously no frills: They don't give you a robe or anything, and I don't believe the doors lock, so if you have privacy issues, this isn't really the place for you. IMO, the speed of the wax and the affordable price is worth it. I can do without the hubbub if the experience is affordable, quick, and relatively painless.

I went for a mani/pedi Friday night and thought the prices were def decent ($11 for mani; $20 for pedi). The women are sweet and they do a really good pedicure...they use this device (with your permission) to scrape off all the dead skin on the bottom of your foot. I feel like a lot of salons don't do a very good pedicure bec they fail to get rid of that thick layer of skin that builds up...living in the city. It was quick and they were accomodating in terms of appointment timing (earliest I could make was 6pm even tho they say the last appt. is 5:30pm). Also, they serve complimentary wine :-) The women are really sweet (aside from the lady at the front desk). Point is, I would def go back.

So I'm going to be honest and say that I have never had such a quick wax. The only part that really hurt was the part at the top (which usually hurts the most so go figure). She did an efficient job and I was actually impressed! It almost made me come back. However, I will not return simply because the place was dirty. I was taken into the room where the previous customers stick wasn't thrown away and what appear to be a can of Turpentine ( or something toxic?) was tucked beside the table with a rag. Now all this could have been okay but the walls were dingy and dirty and the table where the wax was heating was dirty, which lead me to think the wax was dirty. I just can't believe a place that is so simple (table, wax, trash can) can get so gross? It doesn't take much to wash the walls an keep a place clean. I hope for their sake that they can clean up the room because the Esthetician was talented!

I've been going to Olla for over a year - she was recommended to me by a coworker. It was the best piece of advice ever!!! Olla is wonderful - sweet and like your favorite aunt (not that you'd want your aunt waxing you) but she made you feel comfortable and like you're in the company of a friend. She's SO fast too, I've been tortured at other, WAY more expensive salons for more than 30 minutes, and she's done in 5. Magnificent. As far as Brazilians go, don't look ANYwhere else!!!!

GO TO YAFFA!!!... I was petrified the first time, but not I go like clockwork every 4-6 weeks. Yaffa is amazing, has the job done in 5 minutes, does not make you wait and because she talks to you like she has known you for years there is no feeling uncomfortable. I have recommened almost all female employees I work with and they have also loved her!!!

I had been going to the expensive spots, paying 80 bucks and heard about this place. They do a great job and have basically the same result as those spots.... for less. This place offers no frills waxing from a nice staff that gets you out fast without a ton of residual wax to make you uncomfortable.

I had an appointment with Olla this past Friday afternoon for my fist Brazillian ever. I was petrified. Olla was sweet, called me by name, and made me feel as comfortable and as embarassment- free as you can in such a position. She was fantastic. Not only did she calm my fears, but the pain was so much better than I had anticipated. And for $30 for a Brazillian, you can't beat it. The place is not luxurious, by any stretch of the imagination, but I was in and out in less than 15 minutes, and I was walking fine afterwards (which I was not expecting to be able to do!) They are a bunch of sweet, friendly, talented women over there! I highly recommend!

Go to Yaffa for a brazilian. Everyone I know, including my mother, goes and loves it. She's excellent, virtually painless, and an AMAZING deal. They get very busy sometimes and appts are necessary. I think the wax is better quality then all the very expensive places I went to before.
