Speaking of extensions, sleek, ultra contemporary design made Robert Cris Salon (3704 Kennett Pike, Suite 250, Greenville, 654-4008) one of Salon Today magazine’s 2009 Salons of the Year. Robert Cris uses Great Lengths hair extensions to increase length and volume for clients who seek it. The hair is real and specially treated and colored for the very best result.
Here’s the thing about Hair’s The Thing (20245 Bay Vista Road, Rehoboth Beach, 226-1454): There’s much more than hair there, but what if there is hair where you don’t want it? “Dermaplaning is hair removal done with a surgical blade,” says manager Jay Belanger. Sound scary? It’s not. “The blade removes only hair. It doesn’t remove a layer of skin.” Microdermabrasion does. Hairs The Thing does it with diamonds. “Traditional microderm uses crystals that lacerate your skin,” Belanger said. “We use a diamond-tipped device that is more precise than crystals so we can make more passes over the skin and do a thorough job.”
Microderms are offered at The Med Spa & Salon (17314 N. Village Main Blvd., No. 55, Lewes, 644-4247), along with Botox and cosmetic fillers like Restylane and Juvéderm. “Depending on the wrinkles, we might use Botox first, then evaluate the client’s face and see if she wants to use a filler on additional lines,” says manager Janice Pruskiewicz. “We can also use fillers on someone’s cheekbones, to make them higher and lift any skin that may be starting to sag. That procedure takes about 30 minutes, and the results are visible right away.”
Want visible results without needles? CK’s Hair and Body Port (1420 Highway One, Lewes, 645-2246) offers a variety of facials, including a pumice peel facial, pigment balancing facial, acne facial and the signature CK Facial. Stephanie Walls, the go-to girl at the salon and spa, described the CK Facial. “First, two types of cleansers —customized to the client’s skin needs—are used. Then comes an exfoliating mask, face and neck massage, a soothing gel mask and then a moisturizer. While the masks are on the face, the client receives a hand and arm massage, and a scalp massage.”)
