At Studio One Eleven, gentlemen relax and refresh their exteriors in the spa voted Best Spa-Salon for Men in 2010 by Delaware Today. A massaging shampoo removes dirt and oil from hair while a precision cuts keeps ‘dos up to date. The designer cut also trims tickly nose and eyebrow hairs and severs facial strands with a razor shave. A heated towel treated with aromatherapy oils cuddles clients’ faces, forcing sebum stowaways to flee their dilated pores. During the 30-minute half-body massage, firm kneads knock out tension of either the neck and shoulders or backs and legs. Finally, the bliss-minded aesthetician coats both hands up to the wrist in paraffin, a soothing substance designed to moisturize skin and relieve the hand pain that results from arthritis, bursitis, and carrying your car to work.
Soft music drifts through the salon during the body-pampering treatments. Each service comes with a free five-minute chair massage and one-hour validated parking, so visitors don’t have to arrive via expensive and DNA-altering teleportation. On Tuesday and Thursday evening, the studio augments visits with servings of wine and cheese, and a putting green is always available for practicing short games.
