Our Story


"Our passion for our work and dedication to our clients helps us to achieve our goal of helping everyone feel beautiful inside as well as outside" - Kelly DiNitto

We are always asked about the meaning of our name, Papillon Jaune, which is French for Yellow Butterfly.  Our story begins in 2005 with the loss of my sister, Nancy.  Her battle with breast cancer was a long one, and she never gave up.  Throughout it, she always said she would come back as a yellow butterfly...and on many occasions, I would continuously look for my sister only to see a yellow butterfly flying about.

On June 18, 2013, my dream of opening a boutique salon came true, and Papillon Jaune opened its doors! In honor of my sister, the name, Papillon Jaune, was clearly the perfect choice!  I can only hope that she is watching over us.  

At Papillon Jaune, our goal is to create exceptional work on each and every client.  Our stylists have an endless passion for what they do and take pride in each creation. We believe in positive energy, and it is something you can't help but feel as soon as you walk through our door. Come in to experience this for yourself.
