Welcome to Pagavé Salon & Spa

On April 4, 2006, Pagavé Salon was established. The temporary salon opened in the circa 1840's home of owners Paul Van Liew and Joseph Jaworski, while their new salon could be designed and executed. Co-owner Karen Metzler Sgroi was quickly on board. The first floor of the home turned into a full functioning salon, complete with 4 hair stations, reclining shampoo bowls, a color bar and a full product line, housed in the living room's built-in book shelves. Two previous co-workers joined them and Pagavé soon employed a team of six, including an assistant and scheduling coordinator.

Joseph, who formerly owned Wilmington Builders and Contractors, went on to design and build their new salon located at Independence Mall, in Wilmington. Karen, Paul and Joseph decided that since they received such wonderful feedback on the 1840's house, that they would design and decorate their new salon to look similiar in style. The space has an "Old World" feel, complete with walnut hardwood flooring, maple cabinetry, Murano style lighting fixtures, tumbled marble and granite throughout. The fireplace and fresh water aquarium only add to the ambiance. The end result, an absolutely beautiful, comfortable environment, welcoming everyone in grand style.

The award winning boutique at Pagavé is a perfect place to find one of a kind accessories and more!

The Spa at Pagavé opened its doors on December 11, 2007. As expected, it's just as spectacular as the salon. It is one of Wilmington's finest. The spa offers full service care from head to toe.

Feature Stylist

Jill Ristine
Senior Stylist

Featured Stylist

Like most of her classmates Jill headed to college after high school, but after a few years felt like it just wasn't the right fit. At age 21 she started cosmetology school at Shilling Douglas.  From day one in the classroom she had the "ah ha moment" of finally finding her true calling.  After years of being a mediocre academic student her passion for learning blossomed in cosmetology school and has endured though her years behind the chair.  Her passion for continuing education includes top-notch programs at The Redken Exchange in New York City, Grahamm Web Academy in Baltimore, and Beth Minardi's Color America.  Not to mention a plethora of salon classes and continual online learning.  Most recenlty she's become Certifited in Bebe Microbonding Extensions for thinning hair.

She has a bit of luck on her side as well.  Before he was famous, Grammy winning musician John Mayer landed in her chair for one of her fantastic haircuts!  

Jill has an amazing eye for detail and can handle anything you bring her way but her favorite services include creative solutions for thinning hair, beautiful blonds, precision bobs, intricate braids, and spectacular updos. 

A seasoned, talented and creative stylist she has been making clients beautiful in the Wilmington area for almost 20 years.
