Critics' Picks

Beauty Boutique ➙ Kiss and Makeup
At this intimate makeup boutique, the focus is on you. For Kiss and Makeup founders Lisa DiCaprio and Darci Henry, it’s more than just about looking beautiful. They want to empower women to feel beautiful about themselves, too. And their signature darci by DiCaprio line stands up to national scrutiny.
2 E. King St., Malvern; (610) 647-4455,

Best-kept Salon Secret ➙ Salon 153
If you’re looking for the intense, high-energy vibe of a larger salon and spa, you won’t find it here. What you will find at this corner gem is an intimate space with a relaxed atmosphere, along with high-end talent and customer service that rivals any Main Line competitors. Good things really do come in modest packages
153 Bala Ave., Bala Cynwyd; (610) 668-1603,

Corrective Colorist ➙ Swarthmore Hair Studio’s Pat Ukropec
For the times your color doesn’t turn out anything like that InStyle cover shot of Cameron Diaz you showed your stylist, Ukropec has your back. She’ll fix the mess and make you ready for prime time in no time.
4 Park Ave., Swarthmore; (610) 544-6620,

Day Spa ➙ Joseph Anthony Retreat Spa and Salon
Whoever said you have to go to a destination spa to get destination-caliber pampering has never been to Joseph Anthony. An accommodating staff and a tranquil atmosphere accompany treatments modeled after those offered at some of the most exclusive spas in the world, making for a true retreat experience. We recommend booking multiple treatments—say, a signature facial followed by a leisurely soak in the chromotherapy tub—and making a day out of it.
