Nicole Farsalas sees the glow inside everyone.
As the founder of Glo Up Chicago, she’s built a business focused on bringing out her client’s natural beauty, with the goal of helping them look good and feel better.
Nicole draws upon her experience as a trained esthetician, studying and working in Boston for two years before returning home to build on her trade. From the moment Nicole picked up a spray gun, she saw the confidence and joy a healthy, natural looking glow brought to her clientele. It didn’t take long for Nicole to embrace the rewarding job of making clients feel and look their best, and with a tireless work ethic and drive to perfect her craft, she dreamt of building on her reputation as a sought-after airbrush artist to becoming a business owner.
Glo Up is much more than just a tanning destination. Nicole combined her education and talent for skincare, make up artistry and airbrush application into a leading Chicagoland beauty destination. In 2019 Nicole opened her first salon suite and started an at home tanning line and in 2021 she opened her first store front and launched a medical grade skincare line.
Nicole prides herself on an honest, open approach to skin care and beauty, and promotes not only her business but tips and techniques for looking your best on social media. She’s built a loyal following and has cultivated repeat customers that count on her team of elite technicians for every special occasion. Glo Up’s growing brand recognition led to Nicole’s eCommerce site, launched during the pandemic to bring beauty to followers at home. Today, she sells medical grade skincare, tanning products and supplies nationwide, specially formulated with the help of a chemist to provide a healthy antioxidant-driven glow.
Nicole is building upon her skincare brand with her client’s unique sensitivities in mind. Through a variety of targeted products, Glo Up delivers prescriptive results in an approachable, affordable product. Nicole has built Glo Up into a full-service salon, offering waxing services, hair and make-up as well as the custom airbrush tanning that’s made her a leading name in beauty.
