Merle Norman Spa Opens With Ribbon Cutting

Owner Gay Bailey cuts the ribbon

Gay Bailey is the Beauty Consultant at the Merle Norman Studio, downtown Sulphur Springs. She is happy to be adding a Facial Spa to her cosmetics and hair studio. The spa room was added during late 2018 and will expand the beauty services already being offered at the 212 North Davis Street salon. On January 22, 2-19 the Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce grandly opened the facility with a ribbon cutting.

Hairstylist Danelle Rutlege is the newest addition to the studio. Interestingly, both Gay and Sue Norton are veteran Beauty Consultants. Sue previously had a Merle Norman studio in Sulphur Springs. Her mom got her started with the products at a young age. Similarly, Gay’s mom was a Beauty Consultant in Henderson, Texas and Gay was somewhat raised in her studio, often acting as a cosmetic model for customers. Both are sure that the addition of the Facial Spa will be a benefit to local women. In addition to the cosmetic studio, the hair salon and Facial Spa, the Merle Norman studio also carries a line of boutique fashions, handbags, accessories and jewelry.
