Above: The clean, sleek space offers guests a transformative, healthier experience.
To and From doesn’t feel like a nail salon, in the best way possible. The space is more spa/modern beauty boutique hybrid, created with careful consideration by founders Jeanne Bloom (a Norwalk native) and Henri Helander. The two met studying fashion in New York and after years of friendship, saw an opportunity in Bloom’s hometown for a business that married her stylish approach to nail art with his passion for clean skincare. The result is a truly unique experience, where beauty and wellness coexist.
Guests choose from a wall of polish colors by JINsoon, LVX, Deborah Lippmann and Habit, all brands that remove up to ten of the harshest chemicals found in most bottles. There’s even a nontoxic soft gel option and mini polishes for younger visitors. Services (manicures start at $25; pedicures at $35) include chemical-free lotions, oils, and scrubs, all performed by expertly skilled technicians.
In creating a space, Bloom and Helander focused on a clean, minimalist aesthetic with luxe touches. Comfortable seating in neutral tones from Design Within Reach replaces the standard massage chairs, while custom manicure stations stand on sleek brass legs and include thoughtful phone-charging ports. You can charge your phone and recharge your mind—all in one place—and enjoy the perks of polish in a healthier environment.
