In the late 1920s, the Great Depression was rendering most Americans professionally and financially paralyzed. But in a small California kitchen, Merle 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.
The stylists at J Nicole's Day Spa & Salon merge fashion-forward designs with cutting-edge techniques. The promise of on-trend styles isn't just an fancy promise; since they work at one of Oribe's signature salons, these highly-trained stylists receive some of the most rigorous continuing education training in the business.
That same dedication to professional excellence extends to the spa's aestheticians. Armed with Obagi products, they perform the facials and skincare services required to maintain a healthy complexion. Aestheticians at this medically certified day spa pay special attention to long-term skin health, and make each treatment as relaxing as possible.
In addition to hair and skin services, J Nicole's Day Spa & Salon
also offers clients the chance to relax tense muscles with soothing massage therapy. Versed in modalities including Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot stone massage, the spa's therapists keep circulation up and stress down with the professional bodywork treatments.
Other services offered by the spa and salon include make-up application, waxing, hair extensions, and hair cut and color services.
