Absolute perfection in brows! For everyone.

Elke is a smart business women but even more she is a warm person who makes you feel welcome from the first time you come in. She does not try to sell you products or more services. She is honest, knowledgeable, and really listens to you. She makes even the worst brows beautiful and natural.
Thank you Elke!

Elke has an amazing eye for styling my eyebrows. I am a child of the 80's when thin eyebrows were all the rage. Elke has been very supportive and encouraging all through my "growing out" process. I highly recommend Elke to anyone looking to enhance the natural beauty of their face.

I have been going to Elke for over 10 years for my eyebrows . She was recommended to me by a friend when a waxing technician literally waxed off one of my eyebrows . I have the utmost confidence in everything she does . I highly recommend her to anyone !

Wonderful experience- my eyebrows look fabulous. Would definitely recommend!

Terrific atmosphere, staff and brilliant Elke.

She knows brows!!!!

After growing out my once-overplucked brows out for a year, I knew I needed to go to the best person possible to re-shape them. Elke is kind, wonderful, and so talented! I can confidently say that these are the best my brows have looked in my life, and I look forward to returning soon. Thanks Elke!!

I am a forever client after only 2 appointments. I've had 2 different eyebrows my entire life and Elke is changing that. Great customer service and she's the best at what she does.

Elke is such a wonderful hostess—visiting her studio is like going to a friend’s house. You walk in your plain old self and leave as the goddess version of you, ready for the lightscameraaction of the movie that is your life.

Always a pleasure to visit Elke for brow maintenance when I'm in the city. Thank you for my gorgeous Model Brow!!

I love Elke and team! Her product line is amazing and she has totally reshaped/regrew my eyebrows. So happy i found her 🙂 Thanks Elke for all that you do!!

Receptionist was friendly and helpful and Elke was so knowledgeable and professional! Next time I'm in NYC, I'm definitely making another appointment!

My eyebrows look fantastic and Elke was so nice it made the pain of tweezing so much better!

Great experience overall. Elke was so nice and really made me feel like she cared and actually paid attention to my needs. Very much looking forward to...

Gorgeous brows, fast, no fuss! Elke is wonderfully gifted!

The way my eyebrows are shaped is very flattering and has lifted years off of my appearance. I would highly recommend Elke. She is the best of the best!!

Love my Elke brows! Super gentle, awesome results that last. Elke taught me to stop trimming and over-plucking and my brows look better than ever. Brow tint and lash tint also perfect every time. Highly recommend!

I had the worst experience with threading . I wanted to fix my eyebrows but didn't trust most places. I live in NJ and decided to drive into the city for a consultation. I am on my second visit and love my eyebrows. !!!!. I would recommend that you go here for a professional shaping and correction. Best decision I made! And Elke is a terrific friendly person so you don't feel nervous at all!

My brows always look great since Elke has been shaping them!

I had my first appointment with Elke yesterday and all I can say is Amazing! Elke was sweet, welcoming and pays great attention to detail. I got my eyebrows SHAPED and in addition to tinted (highly recommended). While Elke worked her magic, she offered great tips until my next visit. Ladies, great eyebrows don't happen by chance. They happen by making your next appointment with Elke!! ❤

Elke is incredibly skilled and listens- She tinted my eyebrows the perfect color, found brows I didn't know I had, and shaped them beautifully. I'll definitely be back!!

by Melissa Gellert on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Truly excellent! Elke has a gift and helps people come into their own beauty without judgment.

by Elisabeth C. on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is the best, simply the best. If I am away and go elsewhere, the person always asks, who did your brows? with awe. She is a consummate professional with an elegant aesthetic.

Elke was knowledgeable and kind. Great first-time experience!

I had a very enjoyable experience at the salon. Elke was very helpful but most importantly she really listened to my opinions and improved my eyebrows big time!

Loved Elke and she gave great advice and she is so pleasant to speak to. She is extremely knowledgeable of eyebrows and all the different techniques that are available out there. I went there bc I prefer plucking w tweezers over waxing and threading. Will def go back

Friendly and knowledgeable . Very happy with my consultation and the results. First visit and we have a plan to make the brows even better.

Love Elke and her technique. Always pleasant, quick and with a great result. Highly recommended!

Elke is an eyebrow magician! Ideally I would trust my eyebrows to no one else. She's fast, gentle, listens to you and has a great sense of what looks good.

Elke is great! She’s an eyebrow guru, and I trust my eyebrows to her explicitly.

If you have eyebrow goals, Elke is the person who will help you achieve them. She's the best!

Can't wait to come back!

Elke is an eyebrow genius. You won't regret a penny spent on her services. If you grow your brows out and let her shape them, it's like getting a face lift. If you have brow issues-just go.

by Jonathan Armenta on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

First brow trim I've ever had. Given to me as a gift. Next time will be on me. Really enjoyed the experience and like the clean, new look.

Great experience as always. Elke is truly talented and really, really charming.

Elke was very understanding about how important and delicate eyebrows can be. This is the best experience I have had doing my eyebrows and I have gone to a lot of places.

Elke is fantastic and has done a fabulous job shaping my eyebrows. I would recommend her to any of my friends!

She is amazing! Very warm and friendly. She made me feel comfortable .. I love her! I will definitely see her again.

It was a treat to finally be able to visit Elke, I had read about her expertise in eyebrows but never made the time until now, her professional and warm persona made feel at ease right away and the work she did with my eyebrows resulted in me feeling now more confident. Thanks for a beautiful experience!

by Sarah Morgan on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is fantastic and has done a fabulous job shaping my eyebrows. I would recommend her to any of my friends!

by Hanna Lessinger on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke's work is delicate and subtle--if she dyes your eyebrows and eyelashes, you don't emerge looking like a clown--the effect is natural and becoming.

I have been seeing Elke for about a year now. She is a true artist and an expert in her craft. I will not let anyone else touch my eyebrows. Wot patience and meticulous and steady hand is bringing my childhood brows back. Her products are amazing - hands down the best!

by Shawn Kerby on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is a brow genius. She works with the unique aspects of your brows to achieve the results you want. She is always professional, personable, and enjoyable.

Elke is a pleasure. Highly recommend

by Leslie Ficsher on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke was attentive and very patient. She listened to exactly what I wanted. My eyebrows look perfect and I will absolutely go back ! Her staff also made booking an appointment a breeze

by Parul Kalbag on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I had a great experience getting my eyebrows done by Elke. She's kind and extremely personable. She asked questions to understand what I wanted for my eyebrows, rather than immediately telling me what was wrong with them. She took her time and checked in with me a few times along the way to make sure that I understood what she was doing and was satisfied. I would definitely recommend her to friends and family.

by Andrea Warriner on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is terrific, and does a great job with my brows!!

by Jennifer Hughes on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is one of NYC's top eyebrow professionals (I did some research beforehand) and she did a killer job on my brows. I was in town for the weekend so I made an appointment with Elke for a shape and tint. She asked some questions to find out what sort of brow aesthetic I was going for and then she worked her magic! I am so pleased and look forward to seeing her again the next time I'm in the city. Thank you Elke, from Dallas!

by Joseph Durando on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

My girls enjoyed the experience very much.

by Caitlin Passaro on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Super happy with my new eyebrows 🙂 I was nervous at first to have them shaped, but I had no reason to be nervous-she knew exactly what she was doing

by Susan Juvelier on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is a woman of heart who knows what she's doing. Highly recommended!

by Isabella Hewitt on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke transformed my brows in just a few minutes, a tweeze here and there. A fee nips with the scissors, and my uneven brows became uniform and fabulous. Thank you Elke!

by Michelle Gant on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I don't trust my eyebrows to anybody but Elke was amazing. She explained everything she was going to do and asked for my opinion along the way to make sure I was satisfied. By brows have never looked better!

by Hanna Lessinger on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke's work is subtle and artistic. I regularly get my eyebrows shaped and tinted, along with my eyelashes. Elke gets it right every time so that I don't look like a gargoyle. The effect is natural and pretty.

by Arianna Seth on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke has transformed my brows and I am in complete awe of her skills!!! I will be recommending her to everyone!

by Jennifer Hernandez on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I never write reviews for anything but Elke is just such a pure treat it's hard not to! Professional, warm, amazing at educating her clients and above all a magician with eyebrows. I couldn't recommend her more!

by Husna Kazmir on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

My third visit and my eyebrows have never looked better! Thank you Elke!

Elke has rejuvenated my brows! Initially thin and patchy, her recommendations have improved them significantly, and dare I say, they might be considered full and thick someday. I will be forever grateful to Elke! Listen to the advice she prescribes as it works!

Elke has been kind, considerate and very very skillful. I have been going to her now for several years, and think she's the best. My eyebrows look fantastic when she's done shaping and dyeing them. She has even managed to get some life back into my not-very-thick eyelashes.

I love Elke! And everything she is doing to my eyebrows! highly recommend!

Love having Elke work on my brows!

Elke is a true professional who is great at what she does. My brows are always tinted the right color and never look fake. I highly recommend the service(s) she provides.

Elke did an amazing job on my eyebrows. I also learned alot - mostly that I was plucking the wrong spots where I should have been letting them grow. Thankfully now I know how to properly shape my brows - thanks!!

Always looking for the best brow person in Manhattan. My brows were uneven & Elke knew just what to do the rescue them. So happy to have found Elke!

Every time I leave Elke's salon my eyebrows get better and better. I always leave feeling like a celebrity!

Elke von Freudenberg's salon is a great experience, from the expertise and personal attention from charming Elke herself to vibrant and dedicated staff, flowers, fresh cookies, coat rack and sofa that reveal the love and consideration behind each step in the process.

Elke was incredibly insightful, helpful, and creative when it came to my consultation communicating exactly what my eyebrows needed in order to look full and even. Her Articulate consultation helped me understand what Inwas looking to achieve.

Elke is an eyebrow genius. I am so pleased and delighted that I found her. My experience at her salon was extremely positive. Elke has a very calming presence, and I immediately felt relaxed upon meeting her. My eyebrows were a mess when I arrived, but they looked better than ever when I left. She gave me sound advice on caring for my eyebrows going forward. I will definitely continue going to Elke to keep my eyebrows looking great.

On my first visit, the reception was welcoming... And then I met Elke and she was friendly and of course, knowledgeable as I expected... my experience was all I thought it would be...perfect!!! Thanks Elke!!!

Trustworthy & professional, Elke was so knowledgeable. You're in good hands here!!

by Stephanie Torres on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke made me feel like I was meeting with a friend! She was amazingly personable and explained everything so well! I can't wait for my eyebrow journey to continue with Elke!!

Elke was personable and experienced and really spent the time to understand the lifecycle of my brows and got an understanding around what I wanted. She gave great tips around what to do to try to help with hair growth and didn't try to push any of her products but wanted to see how some of her tips work out first. She was also happy to provide answers to questions around growth stimulating oils and serums. Overall I am very happy with the service and the corrections she made to my uneven brows. I look forward to continuing to work with Elke to get my brows to my desired shape and thickness.

Elke tinted and tweezed my eyebrows. I had one eyebrow that was arched higher than the other. I was looking to gain some more brow symmetry. I had grown out my eyebrows for a month, which wasn't enough however, even without full brow growth, Elle was able to reshape my brow. She was very sweet and pleasant. It was immediately evident that she was an expert and would not settle with anything less than perfection. She was thorough and explained everything she was doing to me. I would highly recommend Elke.

I have been looking forward to my first visit meeting with the brow master Elke herself as I heard many reviews. As suspected she's the absolute best and explained everything in detail on how to care for my brows. I loved my experience and will be going back soon!

Elke is amazing and super talented. I have mismatched brows that are two shades lighter than my hair - she makes them perfect every time. Best part is I never look overly manicured (important look for guys I think) and it never looks fake.

Elke is a life-saver! My eyebrows have never looked better!

by Nancy Jeffries on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Excellent service!

by Ameya Hanumante on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I love seeing Elke every few weeks. She is so fun yet so professional. She always makes sure to do exactly what I want, and my brows look great every time.

Elke's studio was very warm and inviting, and her staff are so courteous. Elke took several steps in color to get the brow tint, making certain we were on the same page as she worked through each step of tinting and shaping. All week I have been receiving compliments, and I can definitely attribute it to Elke's artistry.

by Catherine B. on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

It was physically painful to spend this much on an eyebrow shaping, but after five months of letting my brows grow out after some less than sterling waxes/threads, I had one chance to get it right. I'm SO GLAD I went to Elke. She does an amazing, completely pain-free job, keeps you as part of the process, and is very good for thick-browed ladies who want to get some shape but don't want to go thin. I look like I got a good nights sleep and she did a great job at making my brows symmetrical (they're similar but the hair grows in at very difficult angles and is super easy to muck up) The only thing I disliked is the price, as it's too much to go in for very regular upkeep and will have to space appointments much farther apart, but she does have a punch card, so if you go for 5 the 5th's free which helps. She gave me good tips for upkeep but when these suckers inevitably get out of control, I'll go back.

by Alison Ashford on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is the only person I trust with my eyebrow shaping and tinting. She is the expert and I highly recommend her professional services.

Elke is simply the best at what she does. Thanks to her I've reached my 'eyebrow goals!' She's also one of the most pleasant people you'll ever meet in NYC - makes that whole plucking hair thing a little nicer.

by Katherine Hoyt on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

The best eyebrow specialist in NY!

Love Elke!! She is the best!! She totally know what she is doing!!

Elke is able to find the perfect balance between thick and natural and perfectly groomed brows. I travel an hour to see her and wouldn't dream of letting anyone else touch my eyebrows.

I'm in the process of growing out my eyebrows, so I think I'm just reserving judgement until they're "finished." Elkie was great, took her time and explained a bunch of things to me, and had great advice

by Lauren Kaplan on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Loved meeting Elke and felt confident that she will guide me back to brow bliss! Great experience, I will be back!

by Carmen Bruckno on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Loved my time spent with Elke and my eyebrows are PHENOMENAL! Can't wait for my next visit!

by Elizabeth Bailey on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Fantastic and so much fun meeting Elle! She transformed my brows and lashes and now I'm hooked on the depilar method for getting rid of my stash 🙂

by Barbara Dougherty on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is terrific - my brows never looked better, and she is truly a lovely person.

by Andrea Warriner on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke does a great job with my brows - she's all about maintaining a natural look with slightly needed adjustments. Very nice atmosphere too.

by Patrick Klinger on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is absolutely amazing! As a male client I appreciate the individual attention. I was going to a place that charges the same but uses pre-fab stencils and waxed. I always left with red/raw skin and thinking my brows looked a little too feminine. Elkes attention to detail makes them manicured but not overly polished which is perfect for my needs! I can't imagine trusting my brows to anyone else.

by Stephanie Cook on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I was very happy with my appointment with Elke. She took the time to listen to me and find out exactly what I wanted. My brows look perfect- exactly the look I was going for. She also made my brows symmetrical, which they have never been. Elke gave me a lot of advice and general information about brow growth, plucking techniques, and brow shaping. My only regret is that I live too far away to see her regularly, but I will definitely make an appointment for my next visit to New York.

by Maria Isabel Buffara on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

She is an artist. wonderful job, my eyebrow it is wonderful now
Thank you

by Elizabeth Canon on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is amazing! She resolved my unique brow issues and was super sweet to work with.

Comfortable place. Appointment on time. Completely understood my issue and did a great job. Will be back.

by Taylor Blakin on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is a true expert when it comes to brows and is extremely personable. I used to only trust myself with my brows, now I trust only Elke (and not even myself haha).

by John Tiefel on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is terrific! I highly recommend her.

by Lindsey Schram on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

The studio is nice, with a relaxed vibe and Elke took her time and did a wonderful job. I'm very happy with my brows!

by Rosanne Barrett on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is, indeed, a brow shaping expert/perfectionist. She has been doing my brows for several years and they always look fantastic!

by Laura Rifkin on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I travel from New Jersey to see Elke- started while she was in Brooklyn. I don't let anyone else touch my eyebrows!

My daughter's eyebrows look great after her first visit with Elke!

by Maria Canedo on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Love Elke!! She is the best!! She totally know what she is doing!!

I always leave Elke feeling so confident with my brows!

Overdue review, I have been a client of Elke since 2012, and she is the best with eyebrows! Elke made my eyebrows look perfect for my wedding in 2015 as well. She is professional, a joy to talk to, and knows exactly what shape looks best on each client

I'm very happy with the model brow service I have been getting 3 times so far with Elke, my brows look SO much better than before and every visit has been a treat! She's kind, knowledgable and flexible and works quickly but thoroughly. Also, the receptionist is very sweet and professional. Will not be going anywhere else and definitely not to one of the many threading salons we have in NYC. Brows are worth investing in and Elke is the professional I had been looking for!

I always leave Elke feeling so confident with my brows!

Elke is very talented and nice. I always look amazing after

Elke is the best eyebrow and lash artist ever. I use "artist" because first of all she studies your face, your colors, your shapes and also your global look. Then, she did what's the best for you. She understood exactly what I wanted just looking at me and asking few things. I live in Italy, but I think that everytime I'll come to NY, I'll go to Elke.

Elke is fantastic, she understood what I wanted and made it happen! I will be returning.

Elke is an AMAZING eyebrow specialist. She is very polite, personable, professional and very knowledgeable about eyebrows. I highly recommend her.

I can't say enough amazing things about Elke! I have gone to every eyebrow specialist in NYC that you can find on the top ten lists, but nobody has helped my eyebrows come back to a beautiful shape like Elke. Not only is she talented, but she's so kind and lovely, such a refreshing experience in the elite beauty industry. Seriously, I feel prettier and happier after I've left. AND she gives a teacher discount which is amazing and so thoughtful.

I was curious whether a professional brow shaping would teach me anything new and what I could be doing better. I also have thin brows and was interesting in whether tinting would help. Elke started slowly and checked with me each step of the way to make sure it was going to match my face, and lifestyle habits so it can be maintained easily. Loved the natural and stunning results. Thank you!

I highly recommend Elke if you want your eyebrows done. I've been growing my eyebrows out for 4 months and i was looking for someone that was good and i came across Elke by far had the best review's, so i decided to give her a try OMG! What a difference with my Eyebrows she did a Awesome job. Love it!

Elke does wonders with eyebrows! She is the eyebrow whisper and knows what to do to correct, shape and gives each person a unique brow that works with their bone structure! Not only is she an eyebrow expert, she is very fun friendly and welcoming. The environment is also very open and modern! I love it! It feels like I am walking into a studio!

Elle was terrific and very professional.

Elke is the best around! She's a masterful brow artist -- she has an eye for subtle changes that have made my brows (and eyes) really pop. Thanks to her deft hand, my brows are in gorgeous, wedding-ready shape!

Elke is always on time and very professional. She's friendly and great at explaining what she's doing. She's also a good listener. Highly recommend!

Elke walks fabulously the thin line between being an expert who really knows her stuff and being in the services industry. My visit was very comfortable, wait time was zero, everyone was friendly and cordial and the space was great. Most importantly, she gently steered me away from making a drastic and irreversible change which (looking back months later) I'm grateful for, and yet she was never at all imposing or condescending. She respects her clients, makes helpful suggestions during consultation and talks through what she is doing. Go here, if you want to receive a top notch job without the attitude.

Elke is amazing. She really knows what she's doing and she really cares. She took all of my concerns into careful consideration and we have a plan in place to get my sadly over plucked eyebrows into tip top shape. I have complete confidence we will get there - I can already seem improvements in my brows after only two visits. Never going any else!

Elke is absolutely wonderful--warm, kind, easy to talk to--and clearly an absolute genius with eyebrows. I went to see her for the first time several days ago with my eyebrows in terrible disarray. I've been trying to grow them out for a couple of years, and they looked patchy and strange. Through a combination of tinting and shaping, Elke worked some sort of magic on my eyebrows, so that they now look wonderful. I feel more confident and put-together than I have in longer than I can even remember. Thank you so very much, Elke!

Best in NYC

I will keep bringing friends, Marla was trilled

Elke is so sweet and professional. She takes her time to speak with you and is amazing at what she does.

Maybe, I've already recommended to friends!

Best eyebrow shaping anywhere!

Perfect! She's my new go to brow woman!

Wow! This is the first time I've ever shaped my brows and Elke did an amazing job. I really liked that she took her time analyzing my brows and explaining each step of the process. Now I actually have arches which is no easy feat when you have typical flat, Asian eyebrows. I'm frugal but I believe in value and Elke is worth every penny so go treat yourself! You won't regret it.

Professional expert brow care in a calming space with the best brow expert in town.

I first came to Elke a few years ago. I had a poor excuse of an eyebrow. Overtime Elke was able to grow and shape my eyebrows beautifully. Would not go to anyone else.

Elke was a pleasure to work with. She listened and understood my concerns, and gave me the perfect brows for my wedding. Even gave me tips on what makes your eyes look tired, etc. I have full confidence in her.

by As seen on Yelp on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Note: This is one of the very few reviews I have ever written, so you know I feel strongly enough about this business and want it to be successful forever.

I can't say enough about Elke. I came to her a year or so after I had taken the time to thoroughly grow out my brows. Rather than risk reshaping them for the first time myself and going back to my old ways, I wanted a pro who understands on-trend brows seen in high fashion (not generic stencil or waxing techniques) to show me what my brows could offer my face. And WOW. I cannot express how pleased I was. The shape was so perfectly done and made me look stunning - model-esque! I felt instantly more fresh-faced and spent the next month hardly wanting to wear foundation or lipstick at all, because all I wanted to do was let my full brows take the stage. I am now in to see Elke for brow tints to help all those pesky blonde hairs to show up and any time I want a special treat I am sure to get an a la carte shaping. I have never once regretted going and never see anyone leave her office with less than perfect brows. In fact, I still feel incredible after seeing her. Not only is she a total expert, she is such a sweetheart and joy to talk to.

I went again today for a brow tint and trim, and this evening (hours later) my husband immediately commented on how bright and youthful my face looked. He never notices my beauty appointments! Best of all, I know I'll spend the next few weeks basking in the freedom of not having to fill in my brows daily and enjoying the confidence it gives me to go out bare-faced.

I have very thin brows and don't get them done very often simply because there is not much to do to them -- or so I thought until I met Elke. I've been to other salons in the past in both southern Cali and Manhattan, including Damone Roberts' salon (who happens to do celebrity brows). In all of my past experiences, stylists tried to make my brows as dark and thick as possible, hoping to make them more dramatic and stand out. They never took into account my features or my style, so my brows always looked too harsh and overpowering for my face. I know bold brows are in, and although I would love to have luscious, thick brows, they don't match my face and I don't look good with them. It's easy to make a brow by itself look better, but the hard part is making that brow go with your whole face.After seeing all of the amazing reviews for Elke, I figured I would give her a try. I honestly thought I would walk out with the same results I always do from other salons, but I couldn't have been further from wrong. While my brows are not much to work with, Elke completely transformed them and I have NEVER in my life seen them compliment my face so well. My face looks brighter and more opened up, and they are so well trimmed and shaped that I don't need to use gel to keep them perfectly in place -- they just stayed that way all day. I don't know what Elke does, but she truly has a gift and a vision for sculpting brows and I am absolutely obsessed with her. I have never been happier and cannot wait to go back.This all being said, I saw Elke a month ago and am now writing this review, and my brows still look incredible (which never happens...they always start to grow in weirdly after a couple weeks).Do yourself a favor and go book an appointment, your face will thank you.THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, ELKE!!

Elke, you are truly an "ARTIST." I couldn't be more pleased with the results of our last session. Here I am coming to you thinking it was my final session as the depillar treatments worked so well that very little previously removed hair came back. As I looked in the mirror, I realize that I wanted to trim and shape my brows further than I had previously asked you to do. We talked. You listened. You went to work. Now every morning I look in the mirror and I smile at the perfectly shaped brows you created and how good they look on me. Thank you.

by Florence D. on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is professional, personable and precise. I had an appointment for a Model Brow and I left truly satisfied. I highly recommend Elke. She has well honed skills and is a master at what she does.

After about 40 years of having eyebrows that were unshaped, sparse , uneven, no arch and not very attractive I made an appointment with Elke. It was the best appointment that I made in a long time!!! Elke is amazing and then some. Firstly, she is so down to Earth and you will feel at home when meeting her. Elke made my eyebrows look amazing and I am so thrilled with the outcome. Tweezing is the best and it is a lost art that Elke is keeping alive. Trust me, Elke is a really amazing and I am so excited to have met her. Eyebrows are so important for us women and so many of us have messed them up either by our own hands or someone else's hands. Elke worked her magic on me and I am so excited to have beautiful eye brows after all these year. Thank you Elke!!!!

I have wanted to write a 5-star review from the moment I met Elke. She is glorious. I struggle to find the money to go get my brows shaped and trimmed, but when I can get it done, it is sooo worth it! She is personable, professional, and always makes me look naturally defined. I've basically stopped needing to wear makeup since getting my brows tinted by Elke, and I feel much younger and fresher. My brows have become a favorite feature of mine. I'll be back!

Saw Elke for the first time today. She does excellent work and has a delightful personality. So glad to have found her!

I can't believe I haven't written a review for Elke, yet. I've been going to her for years. I used to go every 6 weeks on the dot but my visits have become further and further stretched out (through no fault of hers- single girl maintenance vs saving for a wedding girl force me to prioritize differently so only before special occasions, nowadays) and I miss seeing her as often! She is so friendly, warm, and most importantly an EXPERT when it comes to your brows. I was brow clueless before her and she's taught me that Asian eyebrow hair grows in 2 different directions so needs to be trimmed and shaped a little differently. (No wonder no other brow tutorials have ever worked for me!) I always leave her salon in an upbeat mood cause I know my brows are bangin'!! They really are a frame for your face and alter your entire look just by being shaped a little. I LOVE that she started offering the express brow, a 15 min appt, with no eye makeup. Dont' get me wrong the full service one is awesome and Elke knows how to do LOVELY eye makeup so if you're going afterwards- DO IT!!! But if you're a schlub like me who is just going home straight afterwards, it's great that she not waste her time on doing the eye makeup I'm only going to wear on the subway home and it's cheaper, to boot!! Eveyone wins!!! Don't sit on the fence, she's lovely, super talented, and you won't regret it!!!

Elke is honest, knowledgeable, creative and professional. Painless tweeting by Elke gave me the perfect brow for my face. You will not be disappointed.

Elke is amazing! I won't let anyone else touch my brows again after seeing the miracles she can work on over plucked and uneven eyebrows, and even when my brows grow in, they still maintain a nice shape - she's the real deal and you're missing out if you don't trust me on this.

by Mark DuBois on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I have had 6 sessions with Elke with the purpose of shaping my brows to be more androgynous. She has done an amazing job of achieving it. I am also lazy in that I don't want to keep home tweezing to keep up the style so for the last 3 sessions, Elke has been using her Depilar treatment on me. I can't rave about this enough. After 3 sessions (faster then average)hardly any hairs are returning and the ones that do are soft and easily removed. If you want beautiful low maintenance brows, I highly recommend the Depilar treatment

Could not have had a better experience! My brows look amazing, but I most impressed with how almost painless he tweezing was and especially impressed with my eyelash tint. Didn't get a drop in my eye and was a painless experience. So excited to have found Elke!

I will never let anyone touch my eyebrows again except for Elke! I had a terrible waxing experience years ago that left me with brows the width of a pin head. In the past year that I have been going to Elke, she has helped transform my eyebrows dramatically. With her techniques, my eyebrows are fuller and have a great shape. She is a very experienced eyebrow genius! I cannot thank her enough. And on top of her expertise, she is such a sweet, down to earth person.

I cannot praise Elke enough. She is conscientious, thoughtful and the most knowledgeable person I know when it comes to eyebrows.

by As seen on Yelp on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I had an appointment for a Model Brow with lash and eyebrow tint with Elke a couple of days ago and it exceeded my expectations. Elke is truly an eyebrow genius. She obviously is able to really look at a client and discern what is right for that specific face. No cookie cutter brows here. A flattering and natural shape with colors to enhance each individual. Elke is a good listener and instills confidence. She also uses gentle products with a skilled hand. I was completely relaxed and beyond satisfied with my outcome.
I will certainly be back.

I didn't have the chance to write a review the first time I saw Elke a month and a half ago, so as this is my second time seeing her, felt a review was due.

Elke is wonderful! She is both professional and very personable, explains what she is doing and why, and immediately puts you at ease. I feel very safe in her hands. After experiencing many inconsistent eyebrow threadings with unhappy results for years, I am extremely pleased to have found Elke. She is worth the peace of mind.

Elke has been doing my brows for well over a year now. All I can say is that she is truly a "brow wizard". I doubt that anyone could find better. I'm thrilled each time she shapes my brows and she works quickly and painlessly. She has a true talent for knowing how to give a professionally styled brow, every time. Additionally, Elke not only has amazing talent but she is lovely to talk to and runs a very professional salon. There's never a wait and checking out is friendly, fast and simple. If I could give her six stars, I would!!

by Karen DeAngelis on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I have been using Elke since she was in Brooklyn- I travel from Bergen County, New Jersey. - well worth the trip.

by Debbie Kogan on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I have had my eyebrows done before by other "eyebrow experts". Honestly this is the first time my eyebrows have ever looked this amazing!!! In just one visit Elke was able to tweeze (painlessly I might add) my eyebrows into looking awesome. My eyebrows are thinning due to age/threading and she showed me how to fill them in while they grow in. She offered me a sample of her eyebrow scrub and there is zero pressure to purchase any of her products. I did anyway because her eyebrow mascara was simple and easy to use. Besides being super talented in her field, Elke was also super sweet! Your brows can make such a difference in your face, I feel like I had a mini eye lift. I will NEVER let anyone else touch my brows!

OMG Elke is amazing! I have been to other eyebrow experts in NYC but my eyebrows were never amazing. In only one visit my eyebrows look great!!!! I can't wait to see how they look after a few more visits. Besides my model eyebrows, Elke herself is just super sweet and nice. It was such a pleasant experience. I will NEVER have anyone else touch my brows again!!!

Elke was wonderful with these seriously neglected brows, and painless too! She enhanced my natural shape and thoughtfully educated me on how they would progress over the next few months. As someone who rarely pampers herself, this was a wonderful, comfortable experience. Thank you!

by Shannon Gallagher on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke you were absolutely amazing, you really know what your doing, my eyebrows were a mess and you completely fixed them to look the best they ever have. I love them!!! they have never looked better and I'm very happy with the work you did. Your also very sweet and made me feel comfortable. Thank you so much for the awesome experience. I will be back for my next session and i will never go for a cheap thread, nail salon, or to another place again. Coming to you is well worth it

Elke is a brow wizard. She's been doing my brows for a while and I'm always super pleased with the results. I like the fact that she uses only tweezers, as opposed to waxing or threading. Tweezing is much more healthy for brow regrowth and the results are better, but only in expert hands such as Elkes.

Elke is great! I've had a very pleasant experience with her. She not only shaped my brows (which looked fantastic after) but showed me how to fill in my brows and recommended to use her brow scrub.

I definitely will be back to see her again! Thank you Elke!

This place is clean, calm, quiet and Elke is consistently pleasant and welcoming..The brow and lash tintings I have had have ranged from good to excellent--unfortunately the dyes don't come out quite the same each time. But
I've always ended up looking better by giving my faded eyebrows and eyelashes some color and definition and making my face look less washed-out.

I appreciate the fact that they don't try to sell you stuff--Elke sometimes makes suggestions but doesn't push any product.

My experience with Elke was fantastic. She is very professional and knowledgeable. She taught me how to take care of my eyebrows and for that i am very thankful. Great experience overall.

by Rhiannon S. on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is absolutely fantastic. I am very loyal to my LA-based brow artist but it's extremely difficult scheduling with her as I'm now in NYC. I needed to see someone ASAP for the times in between when my brows started looking a little Mufasa-esque, and decided to give Elke a try after many positive Yelp reviews. She's one of the nicest people you'll meet, and she is unbelievably fast and skilled.

She explained to me that brow tint should last up to four weeks and then used a different formula on me as I had mentioned to her how I've found that tint has trouble sticking to my brow hairs.

Post tint, they looked like different brows already!!! She proceeded to clean them up, and after a pluck here and a pluck there, they were literally 'Model Brows.'

I'm giving a serious Cara Delevingne attitude now - but this IS New York - so no one is really surprised.

Thanks Elke!

by Michelle D. on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

She's so amazing. Im self conscious and my brows just added on to it . I got there, she surveyed my face and figured out what to do and i feel so much more confident. She's truly a professional.

Elke is an absolute professional at what she does.

A friend had recommended I try her out. Because of the prices, I was hesitate at first. However I finally decided to give it a try and I was not disappointed. Elke is very welcoming and friendly. She is very much concerned with your specific eye brow request. Throughout the entire process, she explains what she is doing and how you can maintain on your own. Any questions you have are answered. She did exactly what I requested. All of the products she uses can be bought at her salon, also. She does not push anything on you, like many other places do.

Although it is expensive, I am telling everyone it's worth every penny! I will definitely be coming back in the future.

Elke is a brow genius.

Like most women who get their brows done, I've had some absolutely horrific experiences. Some experiences were so bad, it turned me off to getting them done all together.

After moving to New York, I tried some salons again paying upwards of $80 per session so nothing but burnt skin and uneven shapeless brows. And then I found Elke!

I've been going to Elke for less than a year now and my eyebrows get better and better every time I leave her salon. I have naturally thicker brows with a scar in one that is difficult to deal with. I appreciate how much care and effort she takes in every session.

Now, I get complimented on my eyebrows more days than not. Elke even gave me a hair follicle reviver gel for the scar in my brow and it's definitely helping regrow some of the hairs there.

Overall, her prices are on point. She's curious and professional yet creates a relaxing vibe. Plus my eyebrows come closer to perfect ever visit!
If you've had traumatic eyebrow experiences or just strive for perfect brows, Elke is your go to!

Elke is absolutely amazing. I had a wonderful experience on my first appointment. She truly is a professional and knew exactly how to shape and clean my brows. I am now a loyal customer! I would highly recommend her to just about anyone!

My brows were always a work in progress...with no end in sight. I have naturally uneven brows, and prominent jaws and cheekbones. I wasn't sure where to arch my brows, how high the arch should be (to balance out those prominent jaws and cheeks), and how thin/thick they should be... After reading Elke's great reviews on Yelp, I booked an appointment and today, I am finally at peace with my brows! They are still a work in progress but Elke has given me great directions for where my brows are going and I can finally stop wondering if I'm shaping my brows in a way that fits my face.

Elke and the receptionist (I'm sorry I didn't get her name) were friendly, down to earth, and professional at all times.

First, Elke listened to me about how I wanted my brows, how I normally shape my brows, and all problems I had shaping my brows. Then she spoke to me about keeping my natural shape and thickness (I wanted them on the thick side), making my brows even, tips on growing out my brows in certain areas, current popular brow looks, and maintaining my brows. Then she applied a numbing agent and plucked away, all the while keeping friendly chats and working very intensely on my brows. It didn't hurt at all, no tugging on my lids or skin.

After, Elke taught me how to fill in my brows and gave me a mirror so that I can watch her as she did it. She was extremely patient with my questions about brow powder tones and even gave me advice on using the right brushes for application. Elke did not push any products on me. I did buy Elke's brow powder because I had been looking for one and with Elke's recommendation, I knew I couldn't go wrong.

After my appointment, my new brows and I went shopping, and I can't tell you how many looks and compliments I got from people!

Elke is an artist and a scientist in eyebrows. I just let her talent, experience, and precision take away all my frustration. It's so worth it. If I had done this sooner, I wouldn't have wasted so much time, money (on useless products!), and energy. I'm looking forward to my next appointment and my brows' progress!

by Sydney Guzman on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I am the most difficult client when it comes to getting my eyebrows done. I have done it all: threading, waxing, and tweezing. I have been kicked out of two salons because I was too particular about my brows. That was about 4 years ago. I have not let anybody touch my brows since then and, honestly, for good reason. I was so grateful for Elke's patience and so excited to find out that she is of the same school of thought as I am when it comes to brows. We both believe in the power of a thick brow to frame the face. She was absolutely incredible! I'd pay three times as much to do it again because it was well worth the money! It was an amazing experience, which I highly recommend!

Due to a busy schedule and being an actress on a budget I may not see Elke for months for my model brow shaping, but when I do return we pick up as though we're old friends who just saw one another the day before. That's how personable Elke is. Unlike most Beauty Experts, Elke is happy to see you, she greets with you the warmest smile and she doesn't scold you or have a negative attitude towards you because of the time frame of service. Then of course there's Elke's incredible skills to turn your beauty disgrace into an amazing gorgeous face! She has the ability to not only give you clean well shaped eye brows, but also to help your brows grow and as a person who's always in front of a camera that's so important for me. Thanks so much Elke for always providing stellar service!

by Soraia Vasconcelos on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

My eyebrows are wonderful, every time I leave this place I feel like I am born again(lol), Elke is a magician, she knows what she is doing and does it very well. Everybody asks where did I have them done, I get complements... She is awesome!!! I love her work, it's perfection. Thanks, Elke!

My go-to place for perfect brows!

Elke is worth every penny. I've been going to her, every 4 weeks, religiously for a year now!

Your eyebrows can make or break your look and, with Elke's perfect technique, they will elevate your whole face!!

LOVE HER.

Run, do not walk. My eyebrows have never looked this good in the past 15 years.

I have hated my eyebrows pretty much forever. And now for once I don't cringe when I see myself in the mirror. I didn't have uneven Geico caveman eyebrows that have plagued me for years.

Going to see Elke is like going in for pampering. I love her brow scrub and growth serum. She is so incredibly nice and even remembers her clients! She's amazing, tells me how to maintain my eyebrows in between shaping. She's so gentle I feel like taking a nap when she's tweezing. She knows exactly how to create a flattering brow shape for your face. I'm well on the way to getting matching brows that highlight my eyes after suffering through threading disasters at other places.

Did I mention I live out of state and actually book an appointment as soon as I find out I have meetings in NYC? I have literally gone from the airport to the salon so I can fit Elke in.

I hope that I never have to use anyone else besides her. I can't trust anyone else with my eyebrows. I am a bargain hunter, but I swear that she is worth every penny!

She's an artist.

Taming and shaping my eyebrows have always been a major challenge for me. they grow in different directions, at different rates and are just a mess more often than not. prior to visiting elke, i would just go and get my eyebrow threaded but was distraught that each time i would go, my eyebrows would become thinner and thinner so i bit the bullet, allowed my brows to grow out for 2 months and afterwards, made an appointment with elke.

Firstly, she is an incredibly warm person and despite her being the actual expert, genuinely listened to my concerns and requests about my eyebrows. she takes her time to explain her recommendation and then slowly works on your brows pausing during each step to make sure you are happy with the results.

For me, the end result was thick, tames, glorious eyebrows and i could not be happier.

The best part: she doesn't ever push any products or services on you and really cares about one's satisfaction. highly recommended!

elke: i'll see you in a few weeks for a trim!

by Lisa Bernardo on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I have been a client at of Elke's salon for several years now. I find Elke to be an irreplaceable part of my beauty treatment. She has worked with many celebrity clients. If you are looking to correct your brow line or simply enhance your brows I would highly recommend working with Elke.

Love, love, love. No one else makes me thrilled with my eyebrows quite like Elke. I have uneven eyebrows that do not wish to behave, and 30 minutes with her and I look 100% more polished than usual. Some people love walking out of a salon with a new haircut, I love walking out of Elke's salon with an improved face. She knows what looks best for your face, AND she will still listen to what you want. She's pretty much the fair godmother of eyebrows. I've been seeing her every few weeks for the better part of a year, and my eyebrows have never looked more even and I have never been this pleased with my eyebrows. She's an expert for a reason. She knows exactly how to shape an eyebrow with 1-2 rows of eyebrow hairs. She's amazing at what she does, and she is such a joy to talk to.

Elke was so warm and welcoming and made me feel comfortable the entire time. I have very fair/thin eyebrows and she listened to my concerns, managed to find the perfect shade of eyebrow tint and made them look thicker and fuller. I will never go to anyone else. So happy I found Elke. She's the real deal with tons of experience.

Elke is fantastic. I started going to her in the months leading up to my wedding and she was able to turn my brows from over-waxed and thin to natural and shapely. Almost a year and a half after I said "I do," I still look forward to my appointments with her. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable about all things brows and beauty, but she's also an incredible sweet person who makes visits easy and fun.

Love love love! Where has Elke been all my life?! I never knew my eyebrows could look so great following my natural shape. I am getting married in November and was looking for someone to save my eyebrows. My friend gave me the best referral. I have never met anyone who is more knowledgable about brows. This is clearly her art. She quickly pointed out the common mistakes that were made on my brows from people who were just randomly waxing. This always left me with uneven brows. I thought this was just me but Elke evened them out in the first session. Amazing. No one will ever touch my brows again except Elke. And on top of that she is just a lovely person. Makes you feel at home and super comfortable. I cannot recommend this place more

by Sylvia Melendez (Nia Vega) on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I recently took my Daughter who turned 13 to get her eyebrows cleaned up. She was very excited to experience this adventure. Elke was so patient and explained what she would be doing to keep my daughters eyebrows as natural as possible. My Daughter was so happy with the outcome. I will be returning for my child and myself. I am looking to reshape my eyebrows and I am going to Elke. Thank You so much!!

Sylvia & Nia

I've been rehabbing my brows for the last few months, letting them grow in and trying not to touch them, which has been really difficult. I went to Elke looking for some reshaping, and I couldn't be more thrilled with the way they came out! She is so sweet and easy to talk to, and had a really full understanding of what I was looking for in my brows (brow snob). I never really noticed that my brows were uneven! But they aren't any more. She fixed them right up and also gave me a free sample of her own formula that will help speed up the growing process in areas that are a little patchy (due to years of overplucking) for between appointments. I recommend Elke to the highest degree. Total professional and total doll. And honestly, my brows have never looked better! THANKS ELKE!!!!

I found out about Elke through BeautyBooked.com. I was in desperate need of brow rehab after having them threaded way too thin at one of those corner threading shops. Elke took her time to tweeze and shape my over-threaded brows back into shape. My brows are now even with a perfect arch. Elke also gave me some great tips on how to stimulate hair growth. I'll definitely be back.

Elke is incredible. I went in thinking that there was nothing she could do to save my uneven, over plucked brows but somehow she found a way to make me look presentable. Before I went to her I was seriously considering tattooing my brows because I thought I'd done irreparable damage. She made it painless and constantly checked with me to make sure that I was happy with what she was doing. She also made me feel extremely comfortable and made the whole process really enjoyable. I will most definitely be going back!

Pricey - yes. Worth it - heck yes. I just had my brows done (my wedding is coming up) and am so happy I went here. Elke is able to look at your face, your eyebrows, think of what you look like in a photo and comes up with the most natural beautiful brows you didn't know you could have. I have thick eyebrows, and I love the fact that she was obsessed with them, unlike others who want to make pencil-thin lines that look horrible on my face. I am in love and think I may need to become a lifetime customer. Btw - she tweezed mine in nanoseconds, and the results were natural and soft. Also grad students and undergrads, she gives 20 percent off the cost if you bring your ID.

Elke is excellent, as always. Kind, sweet and engaging, she's the best at what she does. No one else is allowed to touch my eyebrows. I started going to see her about 2 years ago. My brows were extremely sparse from thin waxing and over plucking. Today, my brows have never looked better!! I'm extremely happy I found her!

Love my brow shape and the way you explained everything, thank you Elke!

by Brigette M. on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I went in today for Elke's Model Brow service. I was amazed at her attention to detail and her ability to assess exactly what needed to be done to give me perfect brows. Not only did she give me awesome looking brows, but she also took the time to show me how I can maintain them myself between appointments. I will definitely go back again.

I honestly don't think I will ever go anywhere else again for a brow shaping. Elke is a genius - she just knows what shape and thickness look best with your face and features and she ALWAYS gets it right! She takes her time and listens to your concerns and preferences. She makes helpful suggestions and is honest in her opinion. Also - Elke's products are great! I just bought the brow gel and mascara and was hesitent because I was using another for awhile but Elke's version blows that out of the water - much easier and quicker to use! I would recommend anyone to Elke!!!!

This was my first time at Elke Von Freudenberg Salon, I was very well greeted the staff was very nice and so was Elke. As of her job, she knows how to do it. She examined my eyebrows closely and managed to make them look just how I had wanted them to look. Everyone should try this salon !

I'm a novice at this and was a bit worried about snobby or dismissive attitudes, but Elke was calm, sweet and very good. My brows and lashes came out looking more visible, less faded grey, than they have in years. At the same time I don't look startlingly different--just what I wanted. I will definitely try it again.

Elke is a master. I am so glad I happened upon her salon. I love my eyebrows now. She didn't push any products on me, she's easygoing and nice, the receptionist seems sweet, and I love the building. Yes, it's more than I ever paid, but I'm so happy with the result.

by Murie Karlin on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is a professional par excellence. She knows exactly what she is doing and has over the year I've been seeing her corrected all the damage others have done to my brows with wax. Elke has became a necessary part of my grooming.

What I like most about Elke is her down to earth personality and her willingness to teach you about your brows. She doesn't give off that snobby salon vibe that you get at so many places that claim to be experts at making you feel beautiful.

Elke is the absolute best eyebrow expert in New York City. I have been to other people and no one has her expertise and also teaches you how to maintain your brows. I highly recommend her to any and everyone!!!!

Elke is, indeed, a brow shaping expert/perfectionist. I left extremely satisfied and I might add that my brows looked fantastic!

For over a year now I have been coming to Elke & she has completely transformed my brows from short & wonky to long & well shaped. Her brow scrub & serum really do work & her eyebrow pencil is fabulous. Elke is such a delight- really the best brow place in town.

I go to Elke regularly for a lash tint. I am fair with blond eyelashes and she uses a gentle, vegetable-based dye to die them a rich and gorgeous blue-black which lasts 6 weeks. I don't have to wear mascara now! It took me years to find a good salon in NYC that offers a nontoxic tint, and Elke has a very gentle hand as well. I highly recommend her!

Elke is the best in what she is doing. It is a little costly, but once you try it, it's difficult to go to some other place.

by Sheila Archer on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

She works her magic each and every time with my unruly eyebrows. If you want your eyebrows done to perfection, make an appointment immediately to see Elke!

Elke is amazing! I'm not quite there yet but with her help I know I'll have the thick brows of my dreams. After a major over-plucking as a teen in the 90s, I still struggle to get the thick look I used to have naturally, years ago.

She does great maintenance for all my in-between times where any other place would tend to take away too much, she leaves just enough to keep me groomed. I'm done with waxing and threading and am proud Elke Plucked convert.

There's also always snacks. And both Elke and Sunny the receptionist are a pleasure.
Loyalty program - 5 visits and 6th is gratis.
Highly recommended.

Elke is competent as well as professional. I cannot give her enough praise and would go to no one else to have my eyebrows shaped.

by Jennifer P. on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

The best of the best. Elke knows what she is doing. She was the first person to ever shape my brows (besides me), and they've never looked better. It's also painless- I almost fell asleep! She's super sweet- I am only in NYC a few times year and she taught me tips to keep my brows looking great even when she isn't around to fix them!

I would only go here, plain and simple. They know EXACTLY what they are doing, and treat you with professionalism.

by Lisa Bernardo on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is an artist with eyebrows. She looks at your face, evaluates the shape of your brows and begins to reshape your brows accordingly. She offers advice to those who may need a long term program from over plucking your brows. She has her own products for make up and brows that are gorgeous.

I'm an older woman with thining eyebrows and Elke has literally restored their shape and has worked a miracle with a tint. They look natural and healthy and add expression to my face. Fabulous, creative, artistry.

Elke tinted my eyelashes and customed tinted my eyebrows today. What a lovely
Experience A to Z. The salon is so relaxing especially the scented candles of Brown sugar and Fig aroma. Elke and her assistant are Charming and friendly ! No stress with the eyelash tint , its painted on as you are slightly reclined. And you can blink!
Eyebrows were custom colored with two colors. Luv the result!

Elke is THE eyebrow goddess. She transformed my eyebrows and taught me great grooming and maintenance techniques. In addition, Elke's brow tinting and lash services are second to none. I swear by her product line and can't wait to try the entire holiday collection.

Friendly, cozy place. Elke is very good in what she is doing, but I think that the place is somewhate overpriced.

by Mary Saxton on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

My appointment with Elke was a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend her eye brow shaping. I thought I had no eye brows and I was shock what she was able to do. She is warm, she made me feel comfortable and her staff was great. I look forward to going back again. Thank you Elke

“I had purchased a Bloomspot deal and I’m usually nervous about these because I rarely receive great service when I walk into a business with a Groupon, Livingsocial and its likes. It is weird because that’s the one shot the business has to get new customers and keep them! Most businesses will cheap out because the client is using a deal. Well, not with Elke. When I saw Elke’s deal on Bloomspot, it was my first time getting my brows professionally done by a pro. There were so many positive reviews about Elke that I didn't think it could go wrong. I also purchased a 75 minutes facial deal at the same time (they do not offer 75 mins facials anymore. Just 60 or 90 mins). I did not think I benefited too much from the brow styling because I lack a full grown eyebrow to work with. I even grew them out before I went to see her. Elke gave me a lot of good advice on what I can do to help grow out my brows and also what she thinks would look best for me. She used her own product line on me but didn’t push me to purchase anything. She's really friendly!"

Before going to Elke I had actually contemplated plastic surgery because I thought my eyes were different sizes. I consulted two plastic surgeons who each had different oppinions on how to fix it...but both were ready to operate. when I left Elke's I noticed my eyes were the same size and shape! it was my brows and she fixed it! what a great eye. this isn't just a brow shaping, it is a whole face experience.

I cannot recommend Elke enough - she is such a wonderful person & beyond talented at what she does. I have been raving about her to my friends since my 1st visit & only have even better things to say after my 2nd visit. Such a lovely, enjoyable, relaxing experience, and coming out with the best looking brows you've ever had is just the cherry on top!! Thanks, Elke!

I have nothing to add. Elke is the shit for brows. I haven't had anything else done there, but I'd trust Elke without a doubt. She showed me how to make my brows grow thicker in 2 months than they had in a whole year after some lady at Quick Brow Zone screwed me up with crazy thin perma-surprised arches. She made them *perfec* for my wedding weekend. They also give student and teacher discounts--holler!

I now have the eyebrows I always wanted. Elke is wonderful, professional and thorough. She really takes the time to listen and is genuinely interested in what your needs are. Once she knows what you want, she goes to work, giving you perfect brows. I highly recommend her and the salon to anyone who is in search of the perfect brow.

The salon and staff are most welcoming and very professional. Elke is fabulous!

I made an appointment for the Model Brow shaping session with Ms. Elke Von Freudenberg today. This is how it went down:

1. Making appointment: Super easy online booking system. A valid credit card is required to hold the appointment.

2. Location: On the 9th floor of an office building. The space is basically one big room with two private facial/waxing rooms. The decor feels modern with black-white-grey color scheme. There is a comfy sofa in the waiting area with self-served tea and cookies. There is no separation between the actual brow salon and the waiting area, so you can see Elke hard at work with her clients. I got there about 10 minutes early, and my appointment started right on time.

3. The 30-minute Model Brow shaping process: Elke was warm and very sweet. She sat me down in front of a BIG mirror, and I told her about my eyebrow dilemma. I had my eyebrows tattooed before, but no longer liked, so I tried to grow my brows out to cover them. While one side looks pretty good, the other side didn't have enough hair to cover it. She listened carefully and told me how she would proceed to pluck (with a tweezer) and trim (with a brow scissor) to make my brows more even. The chair can be adjusted backwards, so I was facing the ceiling when Elke fixed my brow. I liked how her hands smelled clean and almost sweet when she was operating on my face (I've had some services where the esthetician's hands smelled like cigarettes/garlic/even possibly sweaty butt?!). Elke kept a light and fun conversation going during the process, and I didn't feel any discomfort throughout. She then gave me a mirror, and taught me how to fill in my brows naturally. At the end of the service, she got me back to upright sitting position to check in the big mirror, and it was amazing what a difference a great pair of of eyebrows can do to my face! I looked more awake, and my face had more definition even though I wasn't wearing any other makeup!

4. Product recommendation: Elke suggested her Brow Scrub for my missing patches of eyebrows. There was no hard selling of any kind. I bought it because I thought the idea was intriguing (use the scrub on my dry eyebrows every night for 2-3 weeks, and it's supposed to help the brows to grow out naturally). It wasn't cheap, but not crazy expensive either ($21 for 1 fl. Oz with a mini eyebrow tweezer). I'll update the result once I'm done with the jar.

5. Conclusion: Overall it was a great experience. I don't know if I'll spend $65 for this service regularly (I got it for $30 from a Bloomspot deal), but it looks like there is a weekday lunch special price for 15% off the regular price on their website. Speaking of deals, they have a stamp card where you can get one Model Brow shaping service free after purchasing 5 services.

Elke is a brow genius. Not only does she know what she's doing, but she CARES about what she's doing, too!

Even though she offers a range of services, I've only gone to her for brow dyeing and tweezing. I never feel nervous or uncomfortable when I leave my brows in Elke's hands. She takes her time and goes to great lengths to make sure she understands what her clients want, but also makes sure her clients understand exactly what she's going to do.

Each time I leave an appointment with Elke, I look like a new and improved person. Not like a drastically different person, just myself, but better. I don't trust my brows with anyone else... And neither should you!

Beatta is fabulous! what a beautiful experience & gorgeous results...& Elke's brow cream does the trick. Elke is fabulous but everyone knows that!

My brows are GORGEOUS! Thanks to Elke - and her new brow serum, they are getting better and better. 🙂

by Angela Schiano on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is the best at what she does and she's just an overall sweet person. She is a perfectionist and that is a great quality to have when it comes to these services.

they were very prompt and very pleasant. the space was clean and comfortable and the staff very personable.
