Best Day Spa
Readers, upstate: Hockessin Day Spa (1304 Old Lancaster Pike, Hockessin, 234-7573)

Readers, downstate: Made Ya Look! Salon and Spa (3304 Highway One, Rehoboth Beach, 226-1400)

Critics, upstate: For more than 40 years, Maureen’s Hair Salon has kept clients looking good. Maureen Freebery added a day spa in 2003 that houses five treatment rooms, four pedicure bays and six nail tables. The salon boasts 21 hair stations, which serve spa clients well since most prefer one-stop beauty visits that include skin and hair. Maureen’s is one of three Delaware salons that carries Bare Minerals makeup. Most technicians have at least a decade of experience under their smocks. Massage therapists are certified in several areas to offer pre-natal, deep tissue and sports massages. This year the spa’s maroon and crème color scheme was changed to a more relaxing sky blue. Mother’s Day packages include wine. For Father’s Day, there’s beer. (4813 Limestone Road, Wilmington, 234-7800)

Critics, downstate: Peer into the window of Spa by the Sea and you’ll see a hair salon. Beyond the soundproof wall, however, is a 3,600 square-foot European day spa with Asian decor. The walls are warm beige, deep green, dark blue and apricot, and, in the middle of it all, a soothing water fountain flows. The five European pedicure chairs are equipped with Shiatsu massage rollers, and six of the seven treatment rooms are multi-purpose to accommodate massage or skincare needs. Owner Tami Abbott employs four aestheticians and six massage therapists. A staff physician performs med spa services such as Botox, lip enhancements, laser treatments and sclerotheraphy. A growing number of male clients enjoy skin care and pedicure services, as well. (19266 Coastal Hwy., Unit 18, Rehoboth Beach, 227-8640)
