Paul Norton realized at a very early age that cutting and styling hair was a driving passion of his. He went directly from high school to The Aveda Institute in New York where he trained under Ginger Boyle, Aveda’s Global Master. Since graduating from the Aveda Institute/Aveda Advanced Academy, Paul has honed his skills at notable salons in New York and Los Angeles. As one of the beauty industry's rising stars, he has worked alongside some of the industry’s most notable stylists including Tabatha Coffey of Bravo’s Shear Genius and Tabatha's Salon Takeover fame. For the past three years, Paul has been cutting and styling at the Warren-Tricomi salon in West Hollywood. He has appeared as an expert on Access Hollywood, The Doctors, and E!'s Opening Act from producer Nigel Lythgoe. He can currently be seen on TLC's Randy to the Rescue with Randy Fenoli.
Paul’s philosophy is that a woman’s personal beauty is enhanced when she works with her natural texture, just slightly refined, to create a look that she can call her own. He understands that every woman is unique and that her hair should represent her own style rather than conform to trends. He likes to work one-on-one with his clients to help them define that personal style.
Paul's celebrity clients include Robin Wright, Heather Morris, Hannah Simone, Ariana Grande, Brie Larson, Erin Heatherton, Stacy Keibler, and Adrien Brody. His work has been featured in Glamour, Allure, Redbook, Esquire, Sports Illustrated, Entertainment Weekly, GQ Germany, and Vanity Fair Italia among others.

Timtervention: Hairstyle Transformations Revealed with hair by Peter Butler
Photographs from the film and excerpts from Marnie Hanel's interview with Johnny Villanueva for Vanity Fair:
...The Fighter, the Oscar-nominated film about redemption, courage, and—you guessed it—hair. "David [O'Russell] was like, ‘Johnny, this is going to be a hair film, man.’ You’re going to have fun. These girls have big hair,' recalls stylist Johnny Villanueva of his first meeting with director David O. Russell to discuss the film’s look.
"[Melissa Leo] came in with long, dark hair and didn’t want to cut it. I wanted to leave her hair long for her... It just wasn’t working. That’s always the way, right? When you don’t go for it, it doesn’t work. The third time we cut it, she was like, ‘Just do it. Here goes my vanity.’” So Villanueva bleached it, leaving the roots dark, and scissored a ‘do that’s 50 kinds of wrong—brassy, round, chunky, tiered—all at the same time. The Cheez Whiz of hair. “When David saw it, he was just like, ‘Yes!!!’”
“That’s the classic scrunch. I remember banging those out all day at the salon. I’d throw her head upside down, diffuse it, scrunch it until it was almost dry and then spray it. Sometimes we needed products that would defy gravity. Stuff that gale-force winds wouldn’t penetrate. That’s when it was like, ‘All right, you’re getting Aquanet today.’”
“By the end of the shoot, my bad taste was impeccable... There was no limit to my bad hair.”
Villanueva factored in each character’s personality and set out to create a veritable history of late-80s, early-90s hair. Tomboy “Red Dog” got limp, straight hair. Bully “Tar” got Kelly Capowski big bangs. Pretty “Pork” got a peroxide-blond pre-Snooki pouf. Bulldog Donna got a block of heavy bangs. “Little Alice” got a picked perm. “Beaver” got gelled curls. And Sherri got babysitter layers.
