Meet The Owner!

Jackie Pikulski’s love story with hair styling and coloring goes back over thirty years. After spending time learning from industry leaders and mastering hair coloring techniques, tools and products, she decided to follow her dream and opened Stepping Out Salon in Woodbury, CT, in 1984. An empowered woman, she had the vision to create a welcoming space where employees could prioritize their families. This vision quickly became a reality and her salon gained recognition as a go-to destination for families living across Litchfield County!

Jackie’s passion continues to this day; she is trained in the renowned line of Italian color — Tocco Magico — as well as in the luxurious Coppola Brazilian Keratin Treatment. While coloring was her first love, she loves all phases of hairdressing; her biggest joy is making her clients feel pampered and ensuring they leave her chair with a sense of newfound self-confidence!
