I came to Elke for a Model Shaping + Brow Tint and she is a true artist! I'm super nervous about anyone touching my eyebrows and it was the first time I tried a tint and I loved it! It was very natural but my eyebrows now look fuller and have a great shape. She also provided great advice about how to keep growing them. She definitely lives up to the hype.

Such a great lady, with a very thorough knowledge of brows. I opted to try her brow mascara (not sure if that is the proper term!) and it is the best brow product I have used. I look forward to booking her services again once my brows grow out a bit more.

When my husband not only proactively notices something is different (even if he can't quite put his finger on what it is) but also compliments me on how good I look (after my eyebrow shaping), my visits to Elke are worth more than twice the price -- thank you, Elke!

Elke was very patient and she listened and understood what I was looking for. Happy with my eyebrows although they still need some more work ????

I traveled from Texas to have Elke perfect my eyebrows! It was well worth it. I will be back!!

by Anonymous on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is truly fantastic. She listens to everything you want and delivers that plus much more. I recommend the tinting with a brow shaping by her โ€” so worth it. Not to mention, she's so sweet and funny!

I wouldn't say that I have "problem" eyebrows but they definitely need to be cleaned up every so often...I get nervous going just anywhere since pulling 1 wrong hair can make or break them! Elke was so nice and down to earth! She listened to me and didn't just slap on some wax and sent me on my way, there was actually no wax used at all. She also told me what products she was using but never pushed them on me...this made me want them more and I ended up purchasing some brow tint that looks great ๐Ÿ™‚

They look absolutely amazing and I could not be happier. I have finally found someone who was able to make them even, while still keeping them thick. Such a difference from other places. Totally worth the money!!

by Anonymous on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke was amazing! I didn't know what to expect before getting there but she totally put my mind at ease and did a great job with my horribly misshapen brows. She was personable, fun, and it was a relaxing way to end a work day. The best is knowing that she's really passionate about what she does and wants her clients to be happy -- always a good sign!

Elke and her staff are absolutely delightful and deliver the best results. I walk out with fabulous eyebrows each time and feeling well taken care of. Love this place!

by Anonymous on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Meticulous-which is always a good thing when it comes to brows! Takes your opinion into account before starting to shape your brows. And an all around sweet person!

by Pamela Jacobs on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

After just a short, pleasant time in the chair, Elke showed me my eyebrows and I was amazed at how good they looked. I'd never known I actually had a nice arch and good shape, until Elke worked her magic. It transformed my face. Also, she's such a nice, down to earth woman. Thank you!

by KD on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Started having Elke do my brows in her Park Slope days. At least 4 years later, I think that says it all. She respects my wishes, shapes beautifully. Never pushes product. A good person to boot!

by Jessica on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I just had my second visit with Elke to work on my brows, and she is a GODSEND. I am an actress and a model and have always had so much trouble with my brows--keeping them under control and neat, and mostly finding the right shape for my face! This is such an important point, since the wrong brow shape can completely change a face, and I need my face to make a living! ๐Ÿ™‚ In addition to expertly repairing and correcting eyebrow butchering that past makeup artists have committed, and finding a great shape to frame my bone structure, she is such an absolute joy to be around.

by Michael R. on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Very relaxing, warm staff and they didn't try to upsell me or sell me different products. All in all, a wonderful experience.

by Angenette on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Had my Aromatherapy Facial and had me in the clouds! She is such a sweet person who makes sure that her clients are as comfortable as possible. I am so glad I spent my day off there. And the staff are wonderful. Will definitely return in the future, thank you so much!

by Elke on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I am a busy mom and for ages I haven't had a chance to take care about my face. So I decided for a visit in beauty salon. I have chosen Elke Von Freudenberg Salon NYC. It was definitely a great choice!!!! Friendly atmosphere was just only beginning of the fabulous adventure which I experienced. I had face massage, peeling and masques. Elke's cosmetics works as aromatherapy, and I felt relaxed, refreshed and younger for a long time.

by Ivana on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

This is how all businesses should be run! Even though I arrived a little early for my first appointment, Elke greeted me personally and with such respect and joy that I felt so welcome, like we've known each other for a long time. Elke was so professional and pleasant that I am committed to keep going there even though at first I just went for the experience. Her work is impeccable. I've never had nicer-looking eyebrows. She did not try to upsell any products or services as some places do so aggressively. Instead, she just gave me some brochures and after I got home I saw a follow-up e-mail thanking me for coming, and providing a link to online shopping site. This is terrific! I feel truly valued as a customer. Even though I am still only a student, I was treated as a VIP. I strongly recommend Elke's salon to everyone. Great work and exceptional service!

by Sue on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Spending time with Elke is a treat! Having my eyebrows look spectacular is amazing. Went b/c I'd read great reviews, and they are all true. I felt pampered, and loved the eyebrow pencil lesson. She does not push her products, but I bought the pencil anyways. It's great! I'll be back. Thanks, Elke - you're the best!!

by Evangelia on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

This is the fifth time that i'm going to Elke to do my eyebrows. Not only she is doing a great job but she is a fantastic person as well. I'm always happy with how my eyebrows look when i leave from there.

by Karen on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I've been traveling from New Jersey to have Elke take care of my eyebrows for a few years now- won't go anywhere else.

by Erika C. on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I'm a certified elke loyalist! Her work is topnotch. My eyebrows are clean, even, and not overdone. If you've had botched jobs in the past, you'd know what a gift to your brows she is. She's down to earth and extremely humble (a rare find in her industry!), friendly and fun; all the while managing to remain professional. She's also a great teacher--just ask and she'll take the time to guide you. I love her salon too--it's unpretentious and sweetly refreshing, just as she is.

by Maggie R. on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke and her team were so friendly and welcoming! I have very dark, thick brows that Elke shaped into a beautiful shape to fit my face. Elke gave me advice on how to keep up the maintenance myself until my next appointment and even applied highlight makeup. Her colleague gave me some great skincare advice and a sample of a product to try. I am so glad to have found such an excellent place to have my eyebrows done!

by Alice W. on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I have thin brows as the result of thyroid issues. Elke reshaped my brows and suggested methods to make them look fuller.

The improvement in my brows made my eyes look bigger and I look more "awake" She and her assistant were both lovely women. There was no pressure to buy product or to book again- although I definitely will!

by Taylor L. on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

No joke..this woman is a Goddess.. she totally has turned my eyebrows around.
Thank you Elke.

by Diane on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I was very happy with my eyebrow reshaping. Elke also showed me how to use products to make them look fuller. I think the attention to my brows makes my eyes look better, The brows look fuller and it makes my face look a little younger. Elke and her assistant made me feel very welcome. They obviously enjoy what they do and are very good at it. I will be back again and will try the other services they offer as well.

by Diane Pezzimenti on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

My friend and I visited Elke as part of a girls' weekend visit to NYC. We are older women and our brows have thinned. Elke and her assistant were both very welcoming. She shaped my brows, gave them more of an arch and suggested product that would make them appear fuller. There was absolutely no pressure to purchase anything (although of course I did- my brows look great!) The new fuller brows make my face look a little more awake and bring attention to my eyes. I was very happy with my service and will be back again. I also want to try the other services offered.

by Diane Richer on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is everything these reviews say she is -- a lovely person who does fabulous work with eyebrows. I have seen her a few times -- whenever I get to NYC and can get an appointment. Each time, I leave looking younger and better. I had started to think my eyebrows made my 50-something face look older as they have gotten thinner and grayer, but with subtle shaping and a little tinting and use of Elke's new waterproof taupe brow pencil, my eyebrows look dark (but still totally natural), tame and thick like they did when I was 30. A little out of the way location, but well worth the trip!

by Lynsi on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I have been to see Elke twice and she really knows how to get your eyebrows looking great!

by Evelyn on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I've been to many different places to get my eyebrows done and haven't been satisfied until i started seeing Elke, she is great and is a true eyebrow professional. I really recommend her. I will only go to her and no other place to do my eyebrows.

by Lindsay on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I have struggled with my eyebrows for years. Too thick, too thin, uneven...it was awful. Even after my first eyebrow appointment there was significant difference and tons and tons of compliments from my friends. Elke works her magic and she is a wonderful person to chat with as well ๐Ÿ™‚

by joanna pallante on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is the best in the business. You will leave her salon feeling like a new person after she expertly shapes your brows. I have been going to her for several months now and see a dramatic difference in the shape of my brows which had been botched by other salons in the past. Elke is very sweet and down to earth and puts her clients at ease while in the chair. Would highly recommend.

by P B on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke takes the time to figure out what your face should be framed by and then tackles those rebellious eyebrows with patience and skill. No one beats her professionalism.

by Perry on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke did an amazing job shaping my 13 year old daughter's eyebrows for an important event. The service was prompt, without any pain, and age appropriate. And my daughter looked gorgeous.

by Doryn on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

My brows are sacred! I am constantly looking for the right person downtown to do them and I am constantly disappointed. Elke got it IMMEDIATELY. I finally didn't have to direct someone, she just GOT IT. She reshaped them and kept them thick and my brows look amazing. I won't go anywhere else from now on.

by Stephanie on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

This was my first time receiving eyebrow fixing services and my first time with Elke. The studio was quiet, welcoming, and easy going. Elke was sweet, knowledgeable, and lovely. She worked with my eyebrows and explained what she was doing as she went. She also showed me how to keep up my look and when to come back. My eyebrows look so much better than they did when I went in.

I would recommend her services to anyone out there that has eyebrows! ๐Ÿ™‚

by elke on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I had a great experience with Elke. Her studio is bright, open and airy. She made me feel very welcome. As she worked on my eyebrows, she explained what she was doing and how to maintain them at home. Best of all, my eyebrows look great! I would highly recommend Elke!

by elke on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

My 12-yr-old daughter's 1st eyebrow experience was a success thanks to Elke! She was very friendly and made my daughter feel comfortable. & her work is impeccable.

by elke on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

My teen daughter feel victim of a do-it-at-home eyebrow waxing and was in tears afterward. In one visit Elke restored her brows to a beautiful and natural looking shape. She was lovely, understanding and extremely skilled. I recommend her without ANY reservation.

by elke on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke's studio is clean, airy, tidy and peaceful. Lovely, personalized service in an unrushed and private environment. Elke pays attention to your comments and concerns and gives you undivided attention. The experience is painless and fast! Much recommended.

by elke on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

What a joy to cross paths with someone simply gifted at what she does and who clearly loves their calling. This is Elke. Her talent and attitude are addictive.

by elke on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I will go no where else to get my brows shaped. The experience was wonderful and Elke is, not only a master artiste, but an engaging conversationalist.

by elke on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke and staff are very friendly and committed to making you look and feel your best. Elke takes time to explain everyting that she is doing as she puts you at ease. Angela is great too. Very clean and comfortable surroundings.

by elke on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I had such a wonderful experience at my appointment with Elke. She is great at what she does, and I felt like a million bucks after she fixed my mismatched, frustrating brows. I will definitely be returning. Forget about threading when you can see a pro! It's worth the cost.

by elke on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Erin did my brows as a new trainee. She was friendly and very good at explaining what was happening with my brows. She explained what she was going to do and then asked for approval before she started wanting to make sure I was happy with the results. And I was!! It's amazing how much more open my eyes look! Instant eye-lift! Thank you for a very pleasant experience. ๐Ÿ™‚

by elke on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke did a wonderful job on my lashes and I will be going back for brows. In addition to being fabulously talented, she is a friendly, charming person to be around. I highly recommend her.

by elke on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke very quickly and efficiently tamed my brows. I have been getting my brows done with whomever was in my neighborhood, and didn't notice a difference between places. After Elke worked on my brows, I've been feeling like my eyes look bigger and I realize how much the brows impact the appearance of the whole face. I feel like Elke is able to shape your brows to be perfect for your face, yet she is also very meticulous. I will be back again!

by elke on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is so talented, kind and caring. I love the way my eyes and eyebrows look. The studio is bright, clean, professional and has a glass jar of dark chocolate too. Thank you Elke for making me feel so beautiful.

by elke on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke made me feel as if I knew her for years. I did not think there was any hope for my eyebrows. To my surprise there was. This woman is a miracle worker. When I saw my eyebrows I could not believe that was me. She truly is the Queen of eyebrows.

by elke on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is just lovely! She takes the time to find the best shape for you, takes a thoughtful and conservative approach, and makes you look your best. She is patient and will make sure you're happy with the results!

by elke on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke was very friendly and very informative as she was shaping my brows and walked me through everything I did. She didn't shape too much without making sure I like what she was doing first.

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I came to Elke as a bride-to-be with no idea of what I wanted my make-up to look like on my big day. She showed me three fabulous looks during my appointment, each more fabulous than the last. I feel so lucky to have found her.

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

it was such a pleasure to meet Angela - she's terrific and did a wonderful job on my eyebrows. I am very, very happy with Elke Von Freudenberg's services..

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

It was a pleasure having my eyebrows shaped by Elke. She did a wonderful job. I don't have too many eyebrows, and she used what I had and even took out some strays, to make my eyebrows look so much better. I look forward to using her often for future eyebrow shaping and probably waxing too.

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I have been to both Elke and Angela and they are excellent. You feel like a new person after they are done. Elke is a very experienced professional who makes you feel at ease from start to finish. Will definitely return to see either Elke or Angela in the future

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is amazing! She can literally transform your face! I never got such a great result with threading or waxing! Elke created beautiful arch and it literally transformed my face! Highly recommend!

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is a great hostess and her work is amazing. She's so personable and really makes the appointment worth it. Everything is so peaceful;including the environment. I would certainly recommend to my friends.

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke shaped my brows yesterday and after I got home I could hardly believe how natural they looked yet the subtle arch she created was like a brow lift. Also, she is very down to earth and nice and a pleasure to spend time with. I highly recommend her to everyone!

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

After having a horrific eyebrow waxing that left my face asymmetrical and my eyebrows in shambles I researched the internet, found Elke and decided to go to her for help. She is a true professional. She listened to what I had to say, made suggestions, and worked with me to get my eyebrows back on the road to recovery. Even though I do not live in Manhattan I will continue to make the trip into the city because I am so pleased with the result and with her excellent service.

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

After enjoying several of the best of the best in NYC (e.g. Jemina at Robin Evans, Ramy, et al), I am now a happy loyal customer of Elke -- who is as nice as she is talented at creating perfectly arched brows! (Note: I'd recommend avoiding Eliza P., whom I found to be lacking in basic common courtesy.)

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke is wonderful. She made some excellent suggestions for my brows. I couldn't be more pleased. She's not only great at what she does, but very professional as well. I look forward to to becoming a regular customer.

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke was so incredibly welcoming and kind. I went in extremely nervous after having a TERRIBLE experience with my eyebrows and she knew exactly what to do to get them back to my previous shape! I brought in pictures to my appointment of what I wanted my eyebrows to look like and she was able to replicate them perfectly. I had a wonderful experience with her and definitely will be going back.

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke explained everything and was very helpful. She's very nice and truly is an expert in brows! I'm going to keep going back to get my brows ready for my wedding!

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I had the semipermanent mascara and I love it. Elke explained everything she was going to do before she started and while she was doing it. It's too expensive to do twice a month but I will definitely do this again.

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

My previous appointment with Elke was around Thanksgiving 2009 - and I did not have to see her for THAT long because the shaping she did (took about 6 visits) and the tips she provided allowed me to maintain my brows all that time. But it was time for a touch up and I'm so glad I found Elke again. I will never go to anyone else (and I have been the Eliza and Robin). No one else compares!

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Had a wonderful first experience with Angela. She was delightful, and made my eyebrows look terrific for the first time in years. I was terrified to have them tinted, but knew they'd look so much better as a result. She picked the perfect shade, and they look completely natural.

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

This was the first time I had my brows done since someone scalped me in Vancouver so was petrified!! Elke was so great. First she asked me the history of my eyebrows, listened carefully to the look I was going for and then took off the smallest amount and still managed to create a whole new shape!

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I wouldn't consider going anywhere else. My daughters and I are faithful patrons-would rather not have our brows done than go elsewhere. Very comfortable experience every time.

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

absolutely delightful studio that is enhanced by Elke's warm and loving personality. AND my brows look fabulous! A treat that everyone should allow for themselves.

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Very personalized approach with great attention to detail. Expert correction of brow mishaps from other salons. Patient instruction to help grow back brows which have been over-plucked or threaded elsewhere.

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I have gone to The Model Brow for 3 months now. I have had both Elke and her assistant Angela tint and shape my eyebrows. The look at your face and the current shape of the brow, offer suggestions and then shape the brow. This is the best find I've discovered in years to make a woman face more radiant

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I love my brows and this time had lip waxing, which was also great. Angela is very meticulous and I always come away feeling lovelier. The new office is very comfortable. My experience has always been fab!

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Angela can see what you cannot and turns your brows into an artistic expression of who you always should be........ She is a talent with a personality to match......

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I love Angela! She remembered me even after not coming for almost a year. She's so talented with her brush stroke. I took the Eyebrow Makeup Lesson and she patiently went over how to fill in my eyebrows a couple times. I highly recommend going to EVF. Also her makeup line is VERY reasonably priced.

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

This place is def pricier but I loved the personal attention. I had Angela and she took the time (despite my being late) to ask me what I liked about my brows and what I wanted my overall look to be. Then based on that she very meticulously and miraculously painlessly plucked my brows to perfection. I asked her if she could shade them in and she did such a good job with Elke's brow powder that I bought that and the brush. She did not push the products at all. Loved the entire experience.

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

This is the place to go. I have been seeing Elke for more than 2 years and she has worked wonders. And..she is so nice and down to earth. Just go, you'll be glad you did.

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Seriously, Elke knows brows! Mine are sparse and I've never had anyone tell me why before. I'm going to try her eyebrow scrub which is supposed to lengthen my eyebrow hairs (which is, she tells me, why mine are sparse - I have enough hair, they're just not long enough) When they've filled in, I'll be back for another tweezing!

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I walked into her studio feeling tentative and dorky. She immediately greets you and makes you feel welcome and special. Been over-waxing my brows for years and they had been growing in very thin. I knew the shape was not right for my face, so I really wanted a fresh start with a brow guru who would put me on the right track. I came to the right place! I had a "model brow rehab" session and I am so happy with the results. I could gush on about her, but I am only allowed 500 characters!

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I found Elke Von Freudenberg through a Tippr Coupon, and now will never go anywhere else. She instinctively knows how to shape your brow line for your face. She is careful and consults with you allowing you to understand the process. She'll make suggestions to help you maintain you brow until you are able to to have your brows done again

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I received a very bad eyebrow wax and had to let my brows grow back. I decided to try Elke because of their amazing reviews and I am so glad that I went!! The service was outstanding and I was explained what was being done to me every step of the way, which I loved!! if you are thinking of going, just do it, you won't regret it!!

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Elke did an amazing job with my sparse eyebrows. She evened them out, gave them definition and a little glamour. I coudn't be happier. I immediately looked better groomed and more pulled together.

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

I can't believe the difference after one treatment. Angela was my technician, and she patiently went through the whole process with me, redefined the shape and tinted my brows. They look great, I would highly recommend Angela and the salon.

by elke on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Angela was the one who shaped my brows. She did a great job of making me feel comfortable and relaxed during my brow consultation. She was warm and professional the whole time, and even gave me tips on brow maintenance. All in all, I was very pleased with the Elke Von Freudenberg group of brow specialists!

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

Just do yourself a favor and go see Elke. She's a lovely lady, and she'll give you lovely brows. Truly an artist and an expert. You'll wonder what on Earth you were doing with your brows, before!

by e on Elke Von Freudenberg Salon

This was my first eyebrow shaping and I can't believe the difference! It opened up my whole face. My brows were cockeyed from years of bad tweezing, but the brow artist evened them out for me. I will definitely be back.
