Salon Pasca's dedicated staff of professional stylists beautify patrons with a full range of salon services. To eliminate frizz and tame tresses for easy styling, opt for the botanical keratin treatment ($300). With a protein-rich serum and the wave of a magic hot-iron wand, the keratin treatment restructures, relaxes, and reconditions hair fibers. The resulting smooth 'do reduces the need for morning hair-styling, freeing time for other traditional antemeridiem pursuits, such as sausage-link stacking and throwing night rocks at the sun.
Voted Greenest Store by Delaware Today in 2010, EcoChic Boutique bedecks environmentally savvy women with sustainable apparel, accessories, and cosmetics. Jane Iredale PurePressed Mineral Powder ($52), a water-resistant facial primer, preps countenances for dinner parties and unexpected run-ins with security cameras. The roster of vegan-friendly wares includes the Big Buddha Courtney Handbag ($95) and the John Wind Personally Yours Initial Pendant ($68), a silver- or gold-plated necklace adorned with the single initial of a son, daughter, or memorable salad.
Doctor of Chiropractic Stacy Cohen founded First State Health & Wellness shortly after he received his degree from New York Chiropractic College in 1984. Since then, his center has expanded to six locations and welcomed aboard 12 other chiropractic physicians.
Each location features traditional adjustment techniques and Activator tools that rapidly and gently prod trouble spots. A few locations feature specialty techniques such as the Newark location's high-tech subluxation scanning and the Wilmington location's adjustable Thompson Terminal Point table made up of several different cushions that help it morph into an even more therapeutic surface: a ping-pong table.
Dr. Cohen and his staff complement their chiropractic touch with acupuncture, massage, and nutritional counseling services, which are overseen by the center's own licensed acupuncturists and certified massage therapists. Together, the team's collective efforts have been awarded The News Journal's Reader's Choice Award for Best Chiropractic Office in 2010, 2011, and 2012, as well as the BBB's Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics in 2003 and 2009.
Hollywood Tans' proprietary booths and technologies produce consistent skin tones at 140 sites worldwide. Each location boasts an average of 15 upright, sanitary booths that allow customers to do jumping jacks as they build bronze in 8–11 minutes. For those who prefer to shade sans rays, Mystic spray vestibules banish pallor by misting pelts in aloe-rich custom shades that last up to seven days, and a proprietary line of tanning lotions helps maintain and maximize color between visits.
Effective hair- and skincare requires two things: talented, well-trained beauty professionals and quality products. Elayne James Salon and Spa, named in Salon Today's list for 200 of the country’s fastest growing salons, thrives with a staff of Redken- and Wella-trained hairstylists who wield French-made herbal formulas from Privé as they cut, color, and style strands. They also lengthen short ‘dos with Italian SoCap hair extensions, block frizz with a keratin smoothing system, and scare strands straight with barks from a drill sergeant. The salon’s aestheticians use preservative-free A Natural Difference skincare products to cleanse and exfoliate skin during facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and red-light-therapy sessions. Beyond hair and skin, Elayne James’s service menu includes indulgent Swedish and deep-tissue massages, mani-pedis, and waxing.
A rainbow wall of haircare products from Aveda, Moroccan Oil, Matrix, and Bed Head fills the sunny storefront of Rosci Salon Da' Spa. Inside, stylists rely on these crèmes to fashion three types of wave perms or conceal salt-and-pepper coifs with liquid chroma. Continuing education classes have trained their nimble fingers, which channel both men and women's styles and weave in silky human hair extensions with durable nylon bonds. In private treatment chambers, beds support bodies during eight therapeutic and relaxation massages, and Bioelements blending labs put fragrance- and color-free tonics at aestheticians' fingertips to mix into facials for every skin type. OPI polish slicks natural nails and acrylics in high-gloss color, and Jane Iredale makeup protects skin from air pollutants and UV-rays while fooling facial detection software in red-light runner cameras.:m]]
