The creative styling team at Salon LaRoc keeps up to date better than the New York Times. Well, that’s a stretch, but the squad of hair-tamers includes a curly-hair expert and strives to stay informed about the latest haircare technology. Their cutting-edge cuts, color services, and formal and bridal styles brought home Delaware Today's Best of Delaware 2011 award. Staffers employ the Yunsey and Unite lines for hair, as well as Paul Mitchell, and OPI products for nail services touching up broken vases after throwing a party at their parents’ homes. One of their long-lasting no-chip pedicures can begin with a soothing foot soak in a cushy spa throne. The salon's elegant floral accents, dark-wood floors, and shuttered doors create a quaint, shabby-chic atmosphere.
