Meet Sarah Gibson Tuttle, creative owner of Olive & June and self-proclaimed “mani/pedi obsessive”. This thoughtful, detail-oriented shop owner is a gal after our own hearts. The salon’s mission? To create a luxurious atmosphere built around the idea of a casual, yet sophisticated service—a place where clients can count on a tailored experience, not to mention an ace manicure or pedicure! Named after Sarah’s grandmother and great-grandmother, Olive & June has become a go-to Beverly Hills destination. With a string of glowing client recommendations and a mantra we totally stand by, we were thrilled to sit down with Sarah to chat about her experience building a beauty-based brand from the ground up.

When did Olive & June open? Tell us about the moment you came up with the idea for your shop, and a little about the name, too!
I came up with the idea for Olive & June on vacation with my now-husband. After being frustrated with the salon options in Los Angeles, I turned to him and said I was going to create a nail salon with all the things that I absolutely loved! Olive & June is named after my grandmother and great-grandmother, who are both amazingly powerful and strong women. We opened in August 2013.
