Stylist Dagmar Cianelli opened The Hair Studio & Day Spa in 1980 with the aim of bringing high-end beauty treatments to the ladies and gents of Delaware. Though she has since passed the hair-dryer-shaped torch to her son and current owner, Stephen, Dagmar remains on staff, snipping and smoothing 'dos with haircuts and doses of keratin. The Cianellis are joined by a team of fellow hair artists, aestheticians, nail techs, and bodywork pros who pamper bodies from head to toe?and release tension from muscles and minds.

Tracey and Helyn, nail technicians at Mandarin Salon & Day Spa, utilize their over 50 years of collective experience to pamper patrons' hands and feet with an array of nail services. Aromatherapy soaks, exfoliating treatments, towel wraps, and massages come with their spa mani-pedis, and the two are happy to add softening paraffin treatments to manicures and soothing hot rocks to pedicures. After clients indulge in these relaxing treatments, they choose colorful lacquers from an inventory that includes long-lasting OPI Gelcolor and Axxium gel polish. The duo also applies acrylics to natural nails that are damaged, short, or just shy, sculpting them with pink and white powders for a natural looking extension of your own nails that can be polished with a choice of colors or left natural.
Amid a roomy 7,000-square-foot space, the attentive staff at Beauty Addict Salon & Spa ushers spa-goers to and fro, as they treat them to a range of beautifying services. Whether stepping into the haven solo or as part of a group, clients will receive their technician's full attention during treatments, such as highlights with Balayage hair-coloring techniques, Shellac manicures, and eyelash perms. Advanced LED services including SpaWhite teeth-whitening sessions and Lumiere light therapy—which helps stimulate collagen production and reverse the signs of aging—infiltrate the spa menu as well. In addition, the spa's organic, vegan spray tan bronzes the body without the need for UV rays or homemade beds constructed from Easy-Bake ovens.
Natural light floods through the salon's large front windows onto leather sofas and a painting of budding tulips. Amid these comforting accents, skilled aestheticians pamper their clients from scalp to toe with indulgent hair-, skin-, and nailcare services. They hydrate strands with invigorating hot-oil treatments and use facials to help reverse damage caused by stress, poor diet, or environmental hazards such as sunshine. The staff also removes unwanted sideburns and mustaches with wax and thread.
It isn't every day that a licensed massage therapist gets to work during a rock concert. Jasmine McKenzie had just that opportunity when she gave much-needed kneads to performing artists and crew members at the Rock on the Range music festival. She's also accustomed to the refined ambiance at the Scioto Country Club, where she previously practiced techniques ranging from deep-tissue and hot-stone massage to neuromuscular therapy and pregnancy massage.
Between her experience and education?a bachelor's degree in health and wellness and training at the Cleveland Institute of Medical Massage?Jasmine's talents have brought her many unique client experiences. Now at her own practice, she continues to wield her massage talents against ailments such as back pain and injuries caused by athletic exertion or fist bumps that have gone horribly wrong.
