In the late 1920s, the Great Depression was rendering most Americans professionally and financially paralyzed. But in a small California kitchen, Merle Nethercutt Norman was putting a plan in motion to formulate her own skincare products and share them with family and friends. She truly believed in her formulas, knowing that by getting them on as many faces as possible, she would develop a following of customers. She was right—within a few years she and her nephew were opening their first studio in Santa Monica, and they eventually unveiled a series of independently operated stores that enabled women to take ownership during a time of gender-based limitations such as men-only restrooms.
Today, in approximately 2,000 stores across three countries, the three basic principles of Merle's original vision still apply. Each studio is independently owned and fosters an in-depth knowledge of the company's own line of makeup and skincare products. Just as Merle shared her creations with close friends and sallow mannequins more than 80 years ago, today's aestheticians embody the business's "try before you buy" philosophy. A menu of complimentary studio services—from foundation checks to express facials—allows patrons to sample the lauded brand before committing to the purchase of products or full spa treatments.
Equipped with Bumble and bumble and OPI products, the skilled staff at Vixen Hair Studio transform dishevelled mop-tops into stylish new manes, ragged nails into polished ovals, and furry brows into sleek arches. Upon arrival, a beauty expert consults with clients to plan the hair services and skincare treatments they require based on their desired look or need to find work as a clown's body-double. The in-house aestheticians flaunt their years of training in soothing mani-pedis, eye-opening lash tints and extensions, airbrush tanning, and makeup applications. They also remove unwanted hair with traditional waxing and through the ancient art of threading, a centuries-old technique that uses loops of cotton thread to remove hair more gently and efficiently than with other methods.

The aestheticians at Tease Hair Studio help their clients cultivate beauty on the outside and wellness beneath the surface. When it comes to traditional salon services, patrons can add dimension to hair with subtle highlights or opt for distinct layers of colour. Alternatively, the studio's 30-day Bella Body Challenge encourages healthy weight loss with supplement recommendations and supportive diet coaches who appear out of nowhere to high-five clients each time a vegetable is eaten. In the evenings, the salon often hosts wine clubs where guests can toast their achievements.
Nomi Salon’s staff caters to all walks of life because its staff is comprised of people from all walks of life. Stylists from nations such as Japan, Canada, and Hungary use their specialized knowledge and skills to reform hairscapes and offer a variety of services such as the application of a conditioning mask that infuses hair with moisture. After hair is treated to whichever service, stylists can arrange it to suit your desired look or the look suggested by a helpful sketch that your mother drew.
