Our Story

Salon Papillon is a progressive, full service salon.  We have been keeping St.Louis beautiful since 1979!


Original owners, Eric and Renate Ebbinghaus, opened as Papillon Ltd (unisex) after moving here from Germany.


In 2003 Doug and Teresa Brewer and Claudia Dykstra took ownership and became Salon Papillon's 2nd owners.  They thrived for 14 years. 


January 2017, Bianca Palacios (Doug and Teresa's niece) became the 3rd owner.  She started as a receptionist in 2003 and soon became salon director and then an esthetician in 2013.


Our story is simply unique and we're lucky enough to still have all the previous owners (Renate, Claudia and Teresa) working behind the chair.


We are entering our 3rd generation and want to thank you, St.Louis, for keeping our small business alive all these years!


To our clients, new and old, thank you for being part of our family!
