Sarah Gibson Tuttle - Founder and CEO of Olive & June
Sarah Gibson Tuttle is the founder of Olive & June. She named the salon after her great-grandmother and grandmother, the Gibson women who taught her the importance of having high standards and a big heart.
Before opening the Beverly Hills flagship nail salon in August 2013, Sarah worked for ten years as an equity sales trader at JP Morgan & Morgan Stanley in New York City. But the quality of life wooed her out west. When she arrived, she realized Los Angeles had everything she wanted except for the perfect nail salon. Seeing the opportunity to create a pretty space where women could expect and enjoy expert nail care on a regular basis and spend time with their friends, Sarah opened Olive & June.
