In similar fashion to “Oprah’s favorite things,” salon owner Corinne Calabro outlines the top five items she feels are just as noteworthy at Cory’s Hair Studio & Day Spa. (Plus, there are couple of Oprah’s favorite items in the salon’s boutique.)

“These salon and spa treatments are perfect for wintertime, to give your hair and skin a boost to combat the winter wind, drier indoor air, and low humidity,” Corinne says. “They also make awesome gifts.”

1. Hot Chocolate Scrub with Massage
Just like many swanky restaurants have a signature dish or drink they are known for; some salons have signature spa services that elevate them to the top. At Cory’s it is the chocolate-infused treatment. This indulgent treatment starts with a full-body exfoliation that rehydrates the skin. The delicious scent stays with you as you enjoy a warm shower to get ready for your 50-minute Swedish massage.

2. Crisp Apple Latte Facial
This vitamin C and apple extract infused skin care treatment starts with a touch of cupping on the face, a massage, and a facial that strengthens, tones and protects skin from premature oxidation, leaving a radiant, youthful appearance.

3. Healing Pedicure
Ideal for dry and cracked skin, feet—and hands—get a paraffin dip. An intense, hydrating foot balm and therapeutic lotion are massaged into the feet before finishing with nail polish.

4. Hair Conditioning Treatment
After a summer of dry, frizzy hair, this Absolut Repair Molecular Conditioning Treatment hydrates the hair and repairs the molecular structure damage due to chemical and environmental impact. It is said to repair two years of damage in just one use.

5. Gift Cards
These spa treatments, along with dozens of other salon services, make perfect gifts.

“If you are looking for something special—and different—for holiday giving, everyone appreciates the gift of beauty,” Corinne says. “Just call us and we will mail you a gift card to make it convenient.”
