Norabloom Botanicals and Beauty Lounge

Meet Holly Green: Owner of Norabloom Botanicals

With more than 20 years of experience in the beauty industry, Holly knows just what her customers need to feel and look their best. At her shop, Norabloom, downtown’s Ithaca’s top holistic beauty lounge, Holly and her staff offer facials, massage therapy, waxing, makeup, natural nail care and spa parties.

“I love what we offer to the community. At Norabloom you will get excellent service and we treat you like family. We have a gorgeous second-floor private studio and lots of natural light. I love the look on new clients face when they walk in, they are pleasantly surprised,” says Green.

Green hails from North Carolina but she’s lived in the Ithaca area for the past 16 years. She chose to open a business in downtown Ithaca because its centrally located for all of her clients and she loves downtown’s vibe — small, locally owned shops working together to provide a spectacular experience for the community.

“Downtown Ithaca is charming and growing quickly. I love it,” Green says, adding she truly enjoys all of the dining options that are available within steps of her business.

“I never go hungry. There are so many places to get healthy food! I also love the shop owners, we love to collaborate and support each other’s business,” she says.

Outside of operating Norabloom, Green loves to dabble in design/branding, creating beautiful and comfortable spaces, and photography.

“Once inside our darling lounge, customers will see that our space makes them feel relaxed before their spa treatment even begins. Our brand is consistent and designed form a place of be passionate about what we stand for. I use my love for photography in our branding and design of products. We have even started to blend photography services into our spa menu,” says Green.

Norabloom is located at 130-132 E State St. Suite 201.  Additional information is available at
