At Hollywood Tans, tanning experts provide dozens of routes to bronzed skin. Sleek, spacious vertical tanning booths deepen tans in eight minutes, and Mystic Tan booths spritz bodies with a custom bronzing serum that clings to skin for up to a week. Hollywood Tans’ line of shower gels, lotions, and tan amplifiers helps to preserve tans far more easily than never showering again. Staff members happily advise first-time tanners on the best skincare regimen or tanning tactics, and makeup artists accent golden skin with mineral makeup from the makeup bar.
Gold-framed mirrors, Buddha statues, a spiral staircase, and purple accent walls lend an eclectic yet relaxed vibe to Skin Care Studio by kat, where aesthetician Kat Cabrera pampers her clients with signature services and products from A Natural Difference and shea butter/coconut creams and sugar scrubs made on-site with all-natural ingredients. In addition to classic spa treatments, such as facials, eyelash extensions, and waxing, she administers four types of chemical peels and dermaplaning—a treatment that uses a blade to oust unwanted hair and dead skin cells at the same time.
Salon Jalore's menu of services is far-reaching, ranging from haircutting and coloring to makeup and bridal services. The classic Salon Jalore facial is a 60-minute sojourn into cleansing steam and skin pampering, whereas the hand and foot scrubs use sea salts and massage to rejuvenate the skin and revive the extremities. Massage therapists also offer raindrop massage, reiki, and reflexology, as well as prenatal and sports massages.
The staff members at Silk the Salon don't consider themselves stylists; they consider themselves artists. With only a pair of shears, they transform hair into classic, edgy, or elegant styles as designated by their clients. They partner their expert cutting with color services, such as multidimensional highlights and single-process color, as well as hair-smoothing keratin treatments, hydrating masks, and Moroccanoil treatments to complete looks.
Dr. Thomas Neef works to help patients avoid surgery while still achieving their personal aesthetic goals. By avoiding scalpels and sutures, the team at Advanced Skin Care Center MedSpa delivers rejuvenation without downtime and scars. Instead, their instruments of choice include lasers that zap body hair, spider veins, and fine lines instead of burning CDs for mediocre barbershop quartets. In the treatment rooms, light-therapy devices help reduce hyperpigmentation beneath racks of PCA skincare products.
Additionally, Dr. Neef's office offers a permanent makeup expert, Delaware Board of Cosmetology President Lynda Wilson. Through Permanent Makeup by Lynda, she applies permanent eyeliner, eyebrows, and lipliner, full lip makeup, or beauty marks. Having been in the beauty industry since 1976, Lynda is licensed and insured, and serves as President of the State of Delaware Board of Cosmetology.
Though Planet Beach Contempo Spa employs two spa consultants, neither lifts a finger to perform any treatments. That’s because all of the spa’s services—massage, teeth whitening, tanning, skincare, and even weight management—are taken care of by a fleet of automated booths and capsules. Clients slip into the calorie-burning SlimCapsule or the bronzing Mystic spray-tanning booth in complete privacy, and many of the machines feature voice instructions to guide them through each treatment.
