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!
“Stepping Out was highly recommended by a friend of mine. I was looking for a reasonably priced place that did a good job. My friends hair always looks great.The place is friendly and inviting, yet professional. I loved my new haircolor and will definitely be a regular customer.”
“Jackie is owner and founder of Stepping Out Salon. Jackie is a trusted salon owner and stylist. Her reputation is golden. Jackie's Salon has cuts, highlighted, & styled my hair. Jackie is moving from S. Main St Woodbury to N. Main St soon, and the community is fortunate that Jackie's Salon is committed to relocated in Woodbury CT”
“I've been a customer at Stepping Out for nearly 20 years. The staff are fun, funny, kind, caring and helpful....each and every one. Jackie is someone, after all these years, I consider a friend. I can't imagine having my hair done anywhere else. In fact, I call my appointment days "My Holy Days of Obligation," and never miss an appointment.”
“I have been a customer of Nicole's at Stepping Out for 2 years. She listens to what you say, and then does exactly what you ask. When she was unavailable, I saw Leslie, and had the same, wonderful experience. Stepping Out has a professional, friendly atmosphere. I look so forward to my visits. I have referred several people, and they are all as thrilled as I am!”
“Best haircut I ever got. Nicole cut my hair exactly the way I wanted it. It took me 8 yrs. to find the right salon. Nice staff, very professional and friendly. I will definitely be back and will recommend it highly.”
