Egyptian civilization pioneered the use of beauty treatments, which is why the ancient Sphinx is still able to pass itself off at cocktail parties as a 2,500-year-old manticore.

For 80 years, Merle Norman's makeup mavens have been educating clients on proven beauty methods and controlling the quality of their products by overseeing the research, development, manufacturing, and packaging of each foundation, concealer, and eyeliner. The no-chip manicure treats nails to two weeks of scratch-less shine, and a paraffin hand treatment leaves them feeling as light, limber, and refreshed as the world's sexiest candles. The 60- to 90-minute treatment also includes some tootsie TLC, as toes are softened, shaped, and shined to exude equal appendage allure.
If grimace glamorizing is more your thing, the express facial rejuvenates pores and alleviates tension, preparing your countenance canvass for the talented strokes of Merle Norman's certified makeup artist. With a vast array of makeup colors and combinations to choose from, Merle Norman holds hues for a variety of complexions and skin tones, granting each mug newfound magnificence and the courage to kick-start a career as a kissing-booth operator.
