New Salon Opens In Fairfield: ‘We’ve Taken Every Precaution’

Andrew M. Santos

FAIRFIELD, CT — Wendy Brown calls her Fairfield salon “the little shop that could.”

Originally scheduled to open this winter, the Fairfield launch of Pink Soda Blow Dry Bar & Salon was delayed by the coronavirus pandemic, which for months forced the closure of salons statewide. Now, the beauty industry is back open, and the business at 2475 Black Rock Turnpike started offering services last week.

“It’s set up in a way that’s very intimate,” said Brown, who owns four Pink Soda locations across Fairfield County, and described the Fairfield location as “very boutique.”

With only three salon chairs, Brown wanted to create a one-on-one experience in Fairfield where customers would feel pampered and safe.

“When they come in, they’re nervous, they’re scared, they haven’t been in for a while, so it’s more about catering to their needs,” Brown said. “… We’ve taken every precaution and then some.”
