Come March, it’s time to think about a change for spring or just a bit of luxury at the tail end of a bitter winter. So it was welcome news to hear that CAMORO SALON opened in Southport, right next to the Delamar. Husband-and-wife co-owners Danielle and Elie come to the business with big city experience, Danielle spent twelve years with Marie Robinson in New York City and Fekkai, where she met Elie (who worked with Frederic Fekkai for twenty years, including at Fashion Week).

Together, they bring this experience and a bit more of NYC to the new venture in Fairfield, their adopted home since 2018. “Our decorator, Christopher Maya, is the talent behind the gorgeous space,” says Danielle about the chic and welcoming salon, which is attracting a steady booking of clients from the city and Fairfield County. “It’s a place to feel relaxed and inspired to feel and look your best. It’s a place where people unwind and enjoy their time away from the daily grind and leave with amazing hair.”

Designer Christopher Maya designed the new space.

A full salon, it offers cuts, color, treatments and more, and, says Danielle, “I would say the biggest feature is the talent of our staff. We all came from the city, so, naturally, we bring a completely new way of doing hair to Connecticut.” As for what local clients are asking for, she adds, “Everyone, at least in Connecticut, is asking for a more updated look, and I would say what almost all of our clients want is attention to detail specifically to them and a quality service.”

Opening a salon and attracting talent is a roll-up-your-sleeves challenge in the best of times. During a pandemic, it seems it would be even more work. Yet the owners see it differently. “We are so blessed to have created a business where people can go and speak with one another and give people joy throughout this crazy time. And no matter what is going on in the world, self-care still is, and always will be, a priority,” says Danielle. See more on Instagram @scamorosalon.com.
