Testimonials

Happy clients are our priority!

  • "Hair Explosion is a hidden gem in Fairfield. It is located in a lovely stand alone building in the down town area of Fairfield. The place is sunny and cheerful as are the personalities of its husband and wife team that run the place- Larry and Dee Leonzi. Although I live in Westport which is about 10 miles away, I find myself coming back here again and again. Larry is an excellent haircutter and is always very entertaining. He takes great pains to make sure his clients are satisfied and he never disappoints. I highly recommend Hair Explosion."
