Mani/Pedi News

It’s always manicure season, and for many it’s always pedicure season, but when the warm weather hits and toes are exposed in those new sandals and heels, it’s time for all of us to get those feet callous free, with nails trimmed, shined, and polished!

DARIEN

Our nail technicians in Darien are gearing up for weddings, graduations and more (our Orange, CT salon too!), and are very excited that the OPI Dip Manicure (powder with no UV light) has really taken off!  Here’s a little advise: if you haven’t had your nails done in ages and want to grow out your own, with no damage to your own nails, then a Dip Manicure is definitely something to try.  It lasts for weeks, another big bonus!

It’s pedicure season (finally warm weather after a long winter)!  Whether you are dying to wear that new pair of sandals or heels, or you know you’ll be spending many days barefoot or in flip flops, we’ve got you covered with our Stefanou Signature Pedicure.  You’ll leave relaxed, feeling pampered, and ready to show off that fabulous new nail color!  It’s time to break out those new sandals (here’s a great pair from Helen Ainson (click here), or that pair of strappy heels and dance the night away at your nephew’s summer wedding (find a pretty pair of heels here)!   Ready to let those feet out of your fuzzy warm socks?  Give us a call to schedule your appointment at 203-656-5656.

Say “I Do” To Our Wedding Party Beauty & Pampering

There are so many events in our lives that we anticipate with such joy and happiness.  There are milestone birthdays, graduations, proms, and one of the biggest, getting married!  Finding that special someone with whom you will love, cherish, and make lasting and wonderful memories with, is surely one of life’s most celebrated and treasured events.  Whether you are hiring a professional wedding planner or are doing all the planning yourself, it is a joyous and fun time of picking out the venue, the dress, the menu, and more.  However, as with planning any event it has its stressful moments!

We love our jobs here at Andrew Stefanou Salon & Spa!  From luscious lash extensions, hair loving keratin straightening treatments, stunning up-do’s, relaxing massages, where all the stresses just melt away, to amazing makeup done by our co-owner, Dee (a professional makeup artist with numerous awards under her belt!), we are your “go-to” salon and spa for your entire wedding party.

Our Wedding Coordinator will discuss with you all the services we offer and plan out every appointment for the bride, groom, wedding party, mother of the bride, mother of the groom, and even the adorable flower girl and ring bearer!  We offer a beautifully decorated room in our spa where the bride (or groom and his party) and her wedding party can relax in between services while sipping a glass of champagne, or have us bring in lunch for you and the girls (or boys) to kick off the celebration!

We recently had a stunningly beautiful bride named Julie and her lovely wedding party in our salon for a day of beauty and lots of champagne toasting! We caught up with Julie, Brooke and Caroline and they posed for some fun pics for us!  We would love for you to be our next bride to pamper!  Give us a call at 203-656-5656 and say “I do” to an award winning salon and spa that looks forward to being part of your happily ever after!

Prom 2017 – Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

This past Friday, May 12th, our salon was packed with gorgeous girls anticipating a night to remember, their prom!  For every girl (or even sometimes a guy) this requires giving or getting a Promposal (an elaborately staged request to be someone’s prom date, and the more creative, fun or romantic, the better!) Then it’s weeks (or months) of planning!

On the list of plans?  Hunting down the perfect dress, shoes and accessories.  Combing through online photos of hairstyles, makeup and nails, and the list goes on! Last but definitely not least, locking down those appointments the day of Prom for head-to-toe beauty, and finding the best?… hmmm, well that’s easy (not to brag!)

We look forward each year to being a part of all these young beauties special night by fulfilling all their beauty dreams!  From hair to makeup to each perfect pedicure, we strive to have each lovely girl leave feeling beautiful and filled with excitement of the night ahead!

Here’s a peek at our super busy Prom Beauty Day

Dee, Co-Owner of the salon and spa consults with each girl to make sure that the outcome is what they have in mind.  She also always asks to see a photo of the gown and accessories.  That, along with their own skin, eye color, etc and she creates the perfect look every single time!
