FRONT DESK TEAM

Erika – Front Desk Guest Expert


With La Jolie since August 2020

I have been in the Beauty & Wellness industries for more than 10 years.  During my career I learned the importance of building strong relationships with new and existing clients.  It’s the same as building a strong team and understanding people as a whole.  Working in the beauty industry requires a lot of energy, understanding and patience.  My reward at the end of the day is seeing a guest leaving the salon with a big smile and looking beautiful.

Ready, Set, Front Desk! Front Desk Training with Summit Salon Systems. In depth product knowledge for Goldwell and Oribe product lines.

This is an industry involving people and it is always evolving, changing and growing.  Here is where inspiration and creativity take place everyday making people feel beautiful and sexy.

Goldwell Thermal Spray Serum, is by far the best thermal spray product I have every used.  I do like sleek hair so this product provides me the long lasting, silky straight hair that I want.  It also eliminated hair breakage for me.  This is a miracle spray!

My second passion in life is dancing.  I speak some Italian and Greek.

Ready, Set, Front Desk! Front Desk Training with Summit Salon Systems. In depth product knowledge for Goldwell and Oribe product lines.

I discovered my passion in the beauty industry from my Grandma. While growing up, she ran a salon out of her house. This is where I grew my tolerance for that wonderful perm-smell we all know and love. She would let us style our Grandpa’s hair while she had clients. It was so exciting to meet new people every day and see what masterpieces my Grandma could create.

As a Salon Coordinator, I get to enjoy the upbeat atmosphere of creative minds, while utilizing my strengths with technology and scheduling. Creating lasting relationships with clients is what I strive to bring to each interaction.  I am always happy to take your call. The name “Samantha” actually means Great Listener.

Oribe Volumista – with such fine hair, I need that extra lift to add volume.  With a quick spray at my root it gives lift and style to my flat hair. I’m also obsessed with goldwell Dry Shampoo.  This product is a life savior and smells AMAZING!

We all looking to shampoo less, this is the product!  No white residue is left and leaves hair smelling fresh.

I am from a small town outside of Toronto, Canada. I married my husband in August 2019 and moved to live with him in Stamford, CT. I discovered La Jolie as a client first, and Salon Coordinator second. La Jolie was one of the first places to truly make me feel welcome and comfortable in a city where I didn’t know anyone.

MANAGEMENT

Cheryl Van Voorhies – Co-Owner

After graduating from Cosmetology School Cheryl joined the family business their father Anthony Lupinacci started in the 1960’s. She apprenticed under her dad and was exposed to all the great leaders and educators of that time. “Our dad was always interested in the latest and newest products to improve his client’s skin and hair”.

Those years with her dad were the best on the job training any daughter and young stylist could ask for. She is so grateful to have shared that with him.  It wasn’t soon after she found her passion in hair color. “Making women feel beautiful was my goal and color became my passion”.

In 2000 their father retired from his first love and passed it down to sisters Toni Ann & Cheryl now co-owners. Working together with her sister has been an amazing experience.  

Cheryl spent the next decades immersed in learning as much as she could to improve her skills in both cutting and coloring. In the 90’s she studied under Beth Minardi, the high priestess of hair color. We traveled internationally for business education and artistry looking in all areas to improve our business.

For the next 15 years we worked hard on building a team of talented young professionals that shared in their passion and vision of exceeding their client’s experience. It is so rewarding to see their growth. Many of our team members started out at La Jolie as recent graduates from schools, both estheticians and stylists, and to witness the transformation has been amazing.

It feels good to give back by to our community by offering haircuts at the homeless shelter. We are proud of our team to give selfishly of their time to be a Day Makers for people going through difficult times.  One visit stands out in my heart and mind, a gentleman in our chair told us he hadn’t had a haircut in 9 months, he left then came back to show us he shaved. His smile said it all and said “you can image how I feel right now”.   We hope to restart this as soon as we are allowed to visit.

Being recognized by your community and voted Best Hair Salon from Stamford plus Magazine has been such an honor. The Fairfield County Business Journal awarded us as one of the winners of the Family Owned Business Awards and we were voted Best Facial by Best of the Gold Coast in 2020. Our father Anthony would be so proud knowing we kept his dream alive.

It has been a great journey taking this ride with my sister and watching our team grow.  I look forward to the next chapter and I’m grateful for what is here right now.

Toni Ann Lupinacci – Co-Owner

Toni joined La Jolie Salon & Spa in 1989, after growing up and working in the family business since childhood.
She followed her passion into the healing arts and became a Licensed Esthetician at Christine Valmy School of Esthetics, in NYC. Aspiring to expand her skills, she enrolled in the CT Center of Massage Therapy in Westport, CT
in 1994 and became a Licensed Massage Therapist.

Toni’s mission statement as a healing arts professional was to help people reconnect body, mind and soul, and enjoyed contributing to her client’s lives in such a positive way.

In 2000, after working and apprenticing with their father Anthony for 10 years, he retired and passed the torch to his daughters, Toni and Cheryl, to run the business. For Toni a new passion was born. Working with coaches and attending many educational seminars, business systems were created, marketing strategies put in place and exceptional staff was hired and trained.

For the next 15 years Toni and Cheryl worked tirelessly to expand the business by refining the staff’s technical skills, closely monitoring and supporting their progress, seeking out the latest in hair care and skin lines, and providing and teaching exceptional customer service skills, all while maintaining a clientele of their own.

In 2014 La Jolie Salon & Spa received a prestigious award being voted Best Hair Salon from Stamfordplus Magazine. As a result, La Jolie’s business goals were achieved making expansion necessary.

In 2015 construction started on the expansion into the downstairs space that doubled the square footage, added a trendy color bar and gave La Jolie street level exposure in downtown Stamford.

In 2016 La Jolie was recognized by The Fairfield County Business Journal by being one of the winners of the Family
Owned Business Awards.  La Jolie was recognized again by Stamfordplus Magazine in 2016 and 2020 winning the Best Hair Salon award and also voted Best Facial by Best of the Gold Coast 2020.

Toni is currently enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) to become a Health Coach and plans to graduate in November 2021.

Toni is proud of La Jolie’s many accomplishments and grateful for her years in the industry surrounded by her sister Cher and the talented La Jolie Team. It’s an honor to watch our team grow personally and professionally and heartwarming to create long lasting relationships with both staff and clientele.
