Couture Laser & Skin’s founder and director, Dr. Anshul Gambhir, received his medical training at the renowned Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. With his team of aestheticians, he has performed more than 100,000 nonsurgical, cutting-edge cosmetic procedures, ranging from chemical peels to permanent makeup. To diminish wrinkles, he uses dermal fillers or CO2 lasers that resurface skin as they tighten it, and micro-incision liposuction allows him to sculpt and contour bodies without a single surgical stitch or shrink ray. He also harnesses the radiofrequency energy of the Thermage device and uses it to rebuild and remodel collagen, and he scares away unwanted hair with FDA-approved lasers.
Hair can be difficult to maintain, especially when it's your go-to paint brush. That's where Signature Style Hair Salon comes in. Skilled stylists educated at renowned schools such as Paul Mitchell and Cortiva can sculpt voluminous layers or decorate strands with a Redken color treatment. The salon also offers beautification beyond the scalp with nailcare and specialty waxes to nix unwanted hair.
Led by renowned master stylists Natasha Latina and Ann Tasker, who named the business using their children's initials, the 17-member staff at Salon Pasca transforms hair while maintaining a commitment to the environment. Stylists employ earth-conscious products to perform cuts, specialty foiling services, and conditioning treatments. The team also conquers frizz with Japanese thermal straightening and enhances coifs with five types of hair extensions or alpaca pelts. Stylists boast a number of disciplines, including taking classes with or being educators for product lines such as Davines, which uses eco-friendly materials in its formulas and packaging. In addition to haircare services, beauty specialists also apply makeup and wax unwanted hair. In keeping with its green values, the Pasca crew gives a $5 discount on refills when patrons return their empty shampoo and conditioner bottles. The salon also recycles paper, aluminum cans, and plastic bottles. The walls of the boutique-like space sport sleek metallic accents and a curvy, bright-red couch where guests can rest or build an eye-catching cushion fort.
Voted 2012's best men's barber and salon by the readers of Delaware Today, Studio One Eleven surrounds fellas in relaxing, masculine ambiance while polishing handsome exteriors. Haircuts, coloring services, and dandruff-fighting scalp treatments keep dapper Dans looking even dapperer, and waxing streamlines chests for pool season or removes chest-clinging koalas for sweltering summer months. Spa services such as massages and facials melt away stress while keeping skin supple with essential oils and moisturizing emollients. The studio's focus on luxury extends beyond specific services, with complimentary chair massages during every visit, free hairdo touchups between scheduled visits, and an onsite putting green to practice shots while waiting for appointments.
In the setting of a white, two-story house, the staff at Colours Salon & Day Spa aims to serve clients with the same hospitality and comfort as they would expect at a friend’s abode while providing all the indulgent services of a salon and day spa. A talented cast of hairstylists, armed with products by L’Oreal, Sebastian, Paul Mitchell, and Pureology, transform drab ‘dos into chic and polished styles.
Beyond the salon area are the private spa rooms, where skin treatments, waxing sessions, and massage therapy take place. Licensed aestheticians offer five kinds of facials, such as glycolic acid treatments or a classic European session complete with cleansing and exfoliating. Massage therapists, meanwhile, assuage aches with deep-tissue and Swedish modalities, each of which provides more stress relief than throwing a lance through a wall of bubble wrap. Two- to five-hour beauty packages save clients from having to choose, offering them curated selections of massages, mani-pedis, facials, and lunch options.
