From teacher to tanning guru, Rick Norvell is the man behind the success of Norvell Sunless Tanning. Growing up in Tennessee, Rick harboured a fascination with ingredients throughout his childhood. By the time he reached high school, his DIY moisturisers had achieved local fame, and set his career on track.
With degrees in Industrial Technology and Education, the progression into sunless tanning was a natural step for Rick. His knowledge of ingredients and skin health, combined with his passion for the beauty industry, meant he was poised for success.
Norvell’s sunless tanning breakthroughs include a preparation spray to balance the skin’s PH levels; an after-tanning spray to rehydrate the skin; and a new tanning solution that dries in just one hour, meaning clients can shower sooner.
For the past five years, Norvell has won numerous Industry Choice Awards, including best tanning solution and best handheld equipment. Last year, Rick won the Lifetime Achievement Award from Island Sun Times. These coveted awards are judged by beauty salons across the United States.
