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.
Whenever they mend a set of muscles, the therapists at Serenity Massage & Body Work draw upon years of extensive certification trials and training hours. It's that same dedication to their craft that helped them master massage techniques ranging from gliding Swedish strokes to targeted deep tissue pressure. They deploy these moves during individual sessions, helping clients reap benefits ranging from stress relief and reduced pain to lower blood pressure and better range of motion. In addition to their solo services, team members also double up for signature "four hands" sessions, and help couples steal romantic moments during side-by-side couples massages.
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.
Bliss Unisex Day Spa's exposed brick, flowing red and green curtains, Persian rugs, and bucolic mural and artwork inform the staff's sense of aesthetic splendor. The staff renders a number of services, from haircuts and partial highlights to skin treatments and pedicures. They even bundle them together into packages, such as the romance package, which lasts about four hours and includes a body polish with a choice of scent, a one-hour classic massage, and a manicure and spa pedicure.
