René Delyn Costleigh
Licensed since 1979
Owner & stylist at Rene Delyn Designs Inc. since 1986
I am René Delyn Costleigh, and I LOVE WHAT I DO! I am proud to say that I was born in Spain as a military brat and grew up in Japan. I moved back to the States and graduated from Dover AFB High School. I received my initial cosmetology training right here in Delaware. My spouse’s name is Brian, and together we are the proud parents of our daughter, Macayla. My interests include gardening and cooking, and when I am shopping, get out of my way!
As the owner and head stylist of Rene Delyn Designs Inc., I maintain a very professional salon environment. My salon is in Dover, DE, but I have received professional training all over the world, including:
- New York
- Hawaii (under Paul Mitchell and Jeanne Braa)
- Las Vegas
- Los Angeles
- London (at the Vidal Sassoon Academy, the Robert Fielding Academy, and the Jingles Academy)
- Canada (where my extensive training allowed me to attain a Masters in Hair under the auspices of Martin Parsons)
Aside from operating my salon, I am also a color educator for Goldwell Mid Atlantic. The Governor appointed me to sit on the Delaware State Board of Cosmetology for nine years, where we helped regulate the laws of the salon industry. Due to my experience, I was also asked to help write the national exam for cosmetology licensing. I am trained in the use of Vern’s doublehanded perfect faultless cutting technique scissors. I’m also a state-approved apprenticeship program provider. As you can tell, I am incredibly excited about my continuing education and accomplishments in the salon industry.
- Went to Paul Mitchell School of Delaware
Extended education after school working down at the Delaware beaches

- I enjoy what I do: Cuts, colors, and blowouts!
- I love assisting people with their hair goals

As a Goldwell master colorist and a senior stylist, I set the direction and continue
to raise the bar. With three decades of experience my extensive education

as Vidal Sasoon foundation hair cutting certification. Sun kissed blond, brunettes,
dimensional color, and gray coverage are among my specialties.
I know clients come for great hair. It’s the exceptional customer service and experience that makes the difference. It begins with listening. What do you love; what are
your challenges? Together we can come up with a plan that best suits your face
shape, skin tone, hair texture, and lifestyle all while keeping your hair healthy. I
really take the time to listen to my clients and their hair concerns then develop a
plan with them. Each formula is completely customized to fit their journey.
