Melinda Hooper opened Designer’s Denn Salon and Spa in 1981, with the vision of establishing a city-like atmosphere within State College. Through several expansions since opening, it’s success is a testament to Melinda’s commitment to developing a premiere staff through consistent education, providing a healthy environment, and creating memorable, relaxing experiences. Our goal is to provide our community with an exceptional experience by a highly trained and professional team who are committed to exceeding our guests’ expectations on each and every visit.
There are six departments within the salon and spa: cutting, coloring, nails, esthetics (waxing, skincare and makeup), and massage. With technicians at varying levels of the advanced skill certification program, there are services offered at a variety of price levels in the salon, color spa, and esthetics departments. Because these departments feature a wide range of services, the experiences are endless. For example, some of the massage therapists have a medical background as well as a relaxation background, which means they are trained in subsiding pain that comes with certain injuries. Designer’s Denn also offers services for special events such as bridal packages, pregnancy massages, and baby’s first haircut. Whether celebrating a happy moment in life or needing a place to escape from daily stressors, Designer’s Denn is there for it all!
Designer’s Denn Salon and Spa’s vision is to be recognized in our community as leaders in our industry; to promote a safe and stimulating environment where team members are educated and mentored to reach their highest potential; to offer our guests the utmost in customer service and technical expertise in a state-of-the-art facility; to provide a fun, creative, and rewarding workplace for our employees.
