What’s the unofficial NoHo Arts District motto? “NoHo is only as great as its people.” We like to feature new businesses that choose the arts community as their home because they see the value and strength in our collective of like-minded, arts-focused businesses. We make art in NoHo, all forms of art, and now we’ve added a new arts business to our growing neighborhood.

So let’s give a huge NoHo welcome to Pout!

Pout is an inclusive beauty bar based in the NoHo Arts District, offering makeup and hair services, private artistry classes, and an assortment of Los Angeles-based beauty brands. Proudly female owned and operated, Pout is the shared vision of pro makeup artist Nicole Faulkner (aka Lipsticknick) and her best friend and manager, Esther Koop.

After years spent working behind the scenes on television and independent film sets, Nicole’s bold makeup style captured the attention of Hollywood, earning her numerous red carpet credits, the role of Director of Artistry for cult-favorite cosmetics brand, Morphe, and two Emmy nominations for her work on RuPaul’s Drag Race. Nicole’s deep passion for glam and her desire to give back to the local artist community led to the inception of Pout.

Unlike its local contemporaries, Pout skips the hushed spa music and muted palette in favor of a vibrant, tactile space where guests and artists alike can express themselves through the world of beauty. Pout’s distinct design takes colorful cues from Los Angeles street culture – from the glam rock graffiti installation and pop art mural, to the exposed industrial ceiling.

Guests can choose from an array of dry hair styles and makeup service options provided by Pout Pro Artists, all hand-selected and trained by Nicole.

All makeup services include standard human hair faux lash application, and range in complexity – from “The Quickie” ($45.00; a fresh-faced glow done in under 20 minutes) to “The Brush Werrks” ($105.00; a full-face glam beat).

Pout is also the first space in Los Angeles to openly market “boy beauty,” offering everything from basic men’s grooming to makeup services such as “Drag Me” ($175.00; a dramatic, full face transformational beat).

Dry hair styling services are all priced under $100, and range from braiding, to up-do’s, to beach waves, and more.

Beyond the traditional beauty bar fare, Pout boasts an array of extras, including but not limited to: body/face paint (with the option for blacklight UV paint), glitter application, special FX makeup, and embellishments.

Pout will also host a series of private master classes for up-and-coming artists, taught by Nicole and a selection of local celebrity artists.

In addition to glam services, guests can shop from Pout’s retail assortment. All products are curated by Nicole based on staples she personally uses in her own kit, and include offerings from LA-based beauty brands Jeffree Star Cosmetics, Lemonhead LA, Miss Casanova, Morphe, The Crème Shop and Togo Spa.

Don’t miss their official grand opening, Saturday, June 15 from 1-4PM and let’s #KeepNoHoArtsy!
