Many women remark on the vibe of immediate comfort and joy in the Boudoir by Nomi studio. It’s a place of pure positive energy that plays host every day to a remarkable celebration – the celebration of our bodies.
Our bodies serve us in a myriad of ways and, through boudoir, we adorn them, highlight them, and celebrate their infinite perfection.
Part of that celebration includes the carefree ability to arrive at the studios for a fully pampered experience from start to finish. Come as you are and find the lingerie closet full of beautiful pieces in all sizes and looks. You’ll also meet your team of experts to help you hit all the right poses and find the hair and makeup styles that allow your inner beauty to radiate.
In the Boudoir by Nomi studio, hair and makeup focus on the vision of the client. They are tools to enhance our everyday beauty and looks can range from entirely natural to high-drama. With our in-house experts, you also have the option to try two looks during the shoot. Start out with a natural glow then transition to a fully glam power play. The outcome is up to your discretion.
Hair and makeup artist Nicole Marie calls the boudoir experience her shot of caffeine – “it just feels good,” she says. In her years of working with Nomi, she’s had three boudoir sessions of her own and knows that putting your look into someone else’s hands enhances it exponentially. When you come as you are you can focus energy on being the center of the moment.
With 18 years of experience in hair and makeup, Nicole knows Boudoir by Nomi shoots are a far different experience than sitting down at a salon to trim ends and correct color. There’s a more fresh and playful vibe that is nourishing and satisfying. After having styled women in salons, in fashion photoshoots and in runway shows, boudoir is Nicole’s favorite experience.
“Boudoir shoots are super-charged with positive energy,” Nicole says. “I feel like I’m part of something important. When women see their photos they’re seeing themselves in a new light, but one that’s always been there, shining. It’s a new outlook.”
“I’ve never felt more beautiful and sexy than when I’ve been shooting with Nomi, and I share that with clients. I’m a plus-size woman and there’s no insecurity and I’m able to give that encouragement,” Nicole says. “I share it from a confident place of having been in their position. I can’t describe how Nomi is going to take care of you. I pull up my pics and say ‘look at this, look at what she captures.’ It’s the real me, the truth.”
Even after hair and makeup are finished, Nicole enjoys sticking around to see clients come to life in front of the camera.
“It’s satisfying and rewarding to see them own it,” Nicole says. “I’m genuinely in awe of how it all comes together. It’s so beautiful and to see the clients’ look of shock when they see the photos and ask ‘Is this me?!’ It’s exciting to be a part of it.”
The friendship between Nicole and Nomi even further builds that environment of positivity and joy in the studio as they share the same goal. It’s unique, Nicole says, in a society where women are often made to feel like one another’s competition. Instead, the studio is a place of warmth.
“It’s a moment of freedom,” Nicole says. “It’s a safe environment and whatever you bring to the table looks amazing. I just want us all to feel good about our bodies. It’s one of the biggest challenges we face as women, this idea of what is a good body or a not good body. Constantly we’re so hard on ourselves. I’ve experienced it internally and I’ve seen it in my salon chair, the way we’re so hard on these bodies that keep us alive. Boudoir feels like a celebration of our bodies and who we are as women.”
