Keeping up with the industry they adore is much more than just a day job for the stylists who come together to make Paparazzi Hair Salon in Clemmons more than just a business.
Without a doubt, they are top-notch at what they do and that includes hair styling and color, manicures, pedicures, facials and peels, group spa outings and even teeth whitening. Their passion for their craft, their clients (really more like family) and the community that supports them is widely felt. For Owner Bobbie Skinner and the salon’s nine stylists — who can boast a combined total of well more than 100 years in the industry — continuing to give their clients the absolute best treatments means continuing their own training outside of the salon.
Their combination of camaraderie and shared love of the industry means that Paparazzi clients win every time. As part of being a Wella Professionals Salon — and yes, Wella is the leading educator of professional stylists and the largest color line used in the world — Bobbie and fellow stylist, Debi, recently spent time at the Wella Studio in New York where they participated in training sessions with Wella master educators. Becoming a “master stylist” is a three-phase process, and Bobbie stresses that it’s Paparazzi’s goal to have all master stylists at the salon.
“It’s about giving our clients the absolute best care and value for their money,” said Bobbie.
You’ll find a tightly knit group of professionals at Paparazzi, and the master stylist goal is one they share as a team. As stylists complete training — both in and out of the studio — they are eager to share their new knowledge and the latest exciting trends with the entire group which is a true bonus for every client who walks through the door.
“We want to be the leader of color in the area,” said Bobbie. “The Wella studio classes are intense and more in-depth of color theory, cutting techniques and color placement that are true to the clients’ needs.”
Known for its longevity and vibrancy, a product of years of research and development, Wella is indeed the largest color line used in the world. Paparazzi’s stylists stand firmly behind it as the top choice for their clients. From basic color, contour colors, Innosense allergy-resistant color to demi-color, trend colors and Illumina color, Wella simply covers the entire market and owns the rights to one of the three pigments used in all color lines.
The very colorful, creative Paparazzi team stands out on the community front, too, by supporting a variety of local charities and causes such as the Make-A-Wish® Foundation, Triad Pink Heals, The Salvation Army Girls’ and Boys’ Clubs and many local school groups. It’s also a tradition that they advertise their clients’ own small businesses — a winning combination for keeping things local.
Not only bettering the community but also lifting up their clients at every visit, the salon treats its loyal customer base to fun surprises and specials throughout the year. Any regular Paparazzi patron knows to expect the unexpected because that’s just their style; innovation with a personal touch and maybe even a theme day where you’ll arrive to find stylists decked out in costume! Specials and promotions are the best way to let their regulars know how much they are appreciated. Bobbie’s very successful business philosophy has also proven that guiding customers on how to maintain the look they leave the salon with is key. They feel part of the Paparazzi family and they will definitely be back!
