Founded in Los Angeles in 1931, Merle Norman Cosmetics is a leading brand of premium skin care, foundations, and color cosmetic products. Its founder, Merle Nethercutt Norman, was one of the first women in cosmetics and a true trailblazer, empowering generations of women to own Merle Norman Studios and become successful entrepreneurs. Each Merle Norman Studio is independently owned and operated.
Merle Norman continues to evolve, while remaining a pioneer in innovation and trends. Run by the Nethercutt family, Merle Norman continues to embody the American spirit and uphold its founding mission: to inspire women and enable them to express their individual vision of beauty.
