POUT Beauty Bar!

by igas! staff

After Nicole Faulkner (aka @LipstickNick) shared her beauty brains on our “The Secret to the Cosmetics and Confidence Connection” episode, we HAD to make a visit to her beauty bar, POUT!


Pout is an inclusive beauty bar based in Los Angeles, offering makeup, hair services, and private artistry classes. Proudly female-owned and operated, Pout is the shared vision of Nicole and her best friend and manager, Esther Koop.

Our first opinions when walking in: WOW! The space is vibrant, colorful, and full of personality! 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. It’s truly a space designed for art-lovers and glam girls!


Guests at Pout can choose from an array of makeup services and dry hair styles provided by a team of pro artists, hand-selected and trained by Nicole. These women are talented, knowledgable, and super friendly. We opted for some natural makeup touch-ups and fun colorful braids… because, why not?!


Rachel and Kristen respectively picked purple and hot pink hair add-ins. The pros wove the added hair into beautiful, intricate braids that we couldn’t get enough of. How fun are these looks?! 

Whether you want something wild or something subtle, Pout offers it all! We couldn’t believe how reasonable the prices were for the level of service you get at Pout. We HIGHY recommend anyone in the Los Angeles area to go check it out (and say hi to Nicole for us!!!)! 


A HUGE thank you to Nicole and the entire team at Pout for making us feel like queens for the day! To learn more about the connection that cosmetics have on your confidence, listen to our episode with Nicole here!
