Does anyone have experience with Eliza’s Eyes in NYC. I’m too lazy to ever tweeze my eyebrows but want to have them professionally shaped before the wedding. She’s billed as super fantastic with a celebrity client list. But, I read a bad review of her burning someone on yelp.com.
If you’ve had a positive experience with someone else in NYC, please give us that info too!

Last week i went for a lash tint and brow shape with Robert (eliza’s son). He left the tint on while he waxed my brows (even though i questioned this at the time). As a result the tint was left on my lashes (and under eye skin) for way too long. I walked away with blood red eyes that 3 days later have still not cleared and burns on the skin under my eye. The skin under my eye was really painful for 3 days and is now starting to peel/flake as it tries to heal. After years of taking care of my eyes and making sure i was using great (expensive!) eye cream, robert has probably done irreversable damage by BURNING the skin under my eyes. All this for $160. This place should be shut down. He clearly has no idea what he is doing.

Thoroughly DISAPPOINTED!! If I’m spending $130 (not including the tip), I should feel completely pampered and my eyebrows should come out PERFECT……..every time!
Every visit always felt tense and rushed. Eliza is always multi-tasking while not focusing on the person that sitting in her chair.
She’s constantly yelling at the receptionist, walking around; scolding people thru out the office; never fully paying attention to the client.
You can’t work on clients, pamper them, give them 100% while you’re trying to manage, train your staff and run your business. It’s a great disservice! Huge let down when I’m willing to pay this amount of money, and I get home and see my eyebrows arches and lengths are not identical!
I went 3-4 times, I never left satisfied; my eyebrows were always shaped differently. She was never precise.
I know I can pay $10 at any nail salon and get the same (crappy) service.

I don’t have any experience with this place, but I have to say, if you want wonderful eyebrows in NYC, all you have to do is go to Unique Threading on 6th Ave between 23rd and 24th street. I’ve been going there for 4 years and no matter which lady does my brows, they come out looking absolutely fantastic. Threading is also better for your skin, and less risky (they take out hairs almost individually, so no chance of accidentally ripping off a larger swathe than you want).
The kicker? For this amazing work, Unique charges $6. And no, I am not forgetting a zero. Even if you wanted to tip 100%, that is still a tiny fraction of fancier (and inconsistent) brow places.
