Whip Salon Ridgefield is proud to announce that it nabbed four categories in Ridgefield Magazine's 2020 Readers Choice Awards including Best Haircut, Best Hair Color, Best Brows and Best Eyelash Extensions.

Whip Salon is a full-service beauty salon offering a modern, luxurious range of beauty services including haircuts and color services, blowouts and blowout memberships, makeup lessons and applications, eyelash extensions, waxing and more.
What's unique about Whip Salon is that it was conceptualized by a client rather than a hairstylist. This unique perspective challenged traditional ways of doing things to create a thoughtful, welcoming environment that goes above and beyond just getting great hair.
Whip Salon has top talent, that's a given. However, clients get to enjoy all the extras which is what makes it such a special place. The salon's rigorous attention to detail shines through in every aspect. "We're obsessed with the client experience," said Amy Pal, owner of Whip Salon. "We strive for every single guest to enjoy the time they spend with us in addition to looking and feeling beautiful when they leave. Getting your hair done doesn’t have to be uncomfortable or a chore, it should be relaxing and enjoyable.”
The extras include things like mini scalp massages with every service (designed by local expert Susi Laura), fast free WIFI, mobile phone chargers at every station, complimentary beverages including beer and wine, cute cocktail napkins with fun sayings, and a music app that gives clients control of the music they hear like a modern-day jukebox.
Whip Salon is open 7 days a week whereas many salons close on Sunday or Monday. “It’s all about the convenience for our clients. We listen to what they want and we do our best to deliver,” said Pal.
The culture at Whip Salon is founded on positivity and passion for the industry. This year the salon won the Top Workplaces in Connecticut Award, the only salon in the state to receive the distinction. Whip Salon stylists’ work has been featured on Modern Salon’s Instagram which has over 1 million followers, plus it nabbed the Salon Today 200 award, an industry competition that recognizes and celebrates the best and brightest salon owners for their managerial and leadership skills.
Whip Salon has locations in Westport and Newtown (the first franchise) and is poised for more growth in 2020. It is located at 23 Governor Street in downtown Ridgefield.
