Looking for a Colorful Future?

Imagine helping others look and feel beautiful by selling prestige skin care and cosmetics in your very own retail business. If you’ve got a passion for beauty and fashion, owning a Merle Norman franchise enables you to make money while making a positive impact on people’s lives.

“As an owner, getting to share my love of beauty is a fairy tale come true and it’s financially rewarding!” – Jolene Vanover, Studio Owner since 2004, Alice, TX

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.

  • Innovative skin care
  • Nearly 200 shades of foundation

No wonder Merle Norman franchise owners retain their customers an average of 14 years!

  • No royalty or franchise fees
  • Unparalleled 60% co-op advertising reimbursement*
