85 Years and Still Going Strong!

The Depression Era didn’t stop an enterprising young Merle Norman from creating her own beauty products and selling them with the “try before you buy” philosophy she pioneered. Before long she was empowering women to be independent business owners as they sold her linen in their privately owned Studios. This tradition carries on today with the Merle Norman franchise system.
