Anthony DeFranco

We are excited to announce that Anthony DeFranco Salon is proudly celebrating 30 incredible years of service on Long Island. Anthony DeFranco, owner, respected innovator and a true leader in the hair and beauty industry, has announced that as part of his gratitude he will be honoring inspirational women who selflessly make a true difference in the lives of those around them and their community. Seven special women will be selected for a total head to toe day of beauty where Anthony DeFranco and team will spend time with each, pampering and enhancing their natural beauty through color, hair styling, makeup and nails. On Jan. 29, 2020, these powerful women will participate in a special ceremony at the newly renovated Anthony DeFranco Salon located in Huntington. At this celebration we will share each of their inspiring stories with friends, family and their community. 

“I have had many mentors and others who have inspired me and supported my efforts to grow my business here on Long Island. This is our way of giving back to the community that supports us every day. My team and I will use our years of experience and skills to make these extraordinary people feel special and receive the recognition that they deserve. Our mission statement is ‘beautiful hair is not everything it’s the only thing’ and our vision is to create and provide every client with an exceptional look that makes them feel beautiful, confident and individually unique. I encourage everyone who has an inspiring woman in their life to nominate them today,” said Anthony DeFranco.

Anthony DeFranco is accepting your nominations now through Dec. 20. All nomination forms must be completed online and there is no fee. Contest rules can also be found on the website. Simply go to and complete a brief 200-word or less essay along with a photo of the person you are nominating.
