Zorganics Salon & Spas offer a wide variety of beauty services, all under one roof. We are happy to accommodate any special requests. Call to make an appointment, or just come visit us.
It all began with Zora’s Styling Salon and Spa. The name “Zora” is derived from the Slavic word for “dawn”. As the name implies, it is our goal to make you feeling stunningly beautiful like the sun that breaks through the horizon as it signals the start of a new day.
We use our private line of organic products, Zorganics®, and now you can enjoy them in the comfort of your own home as well. They are made with all-natural ingredients and are so extensive that they cover every imaginable hair and skin need. The Zorganics® line is also available for retail. Wholesalers and retailers interested in the Zorganics® line are invited to contact us.
I passionately place myself at the forefront of beauty innovation and with over ten years of experience in the salon/spa industry, my team and I are prepared and excited to take on any undertaking. Our services are tailored to meet your individual needs and are available for men, women, and children.
With our high-quality products and first-class customer service, we look forward to bringing you the most luxurious experience no one but Zorganics can deliver.
Frida Emalange, CEO
Chapter One: A Dream and the Courage to Pursue
The first chapter in the story begins in 2001. While living in Bellingham, Frida recognized an untapped market not being addressed by other salons in the area: a salon that would cater to clients with all types of hair. With $3,500, Frida bought her first salon, a tiny shop located on King Street. Frida named the salon "Zora's Braids and More" in honor of her baby daughter, Zora, the source, Frida says "of the courage I needed to open my own business."
Chapter Two: The Road to Success
Frida began to build a customer base and within a year she was ready to expand to a larger space. Zora's Braids and More opened in a location at the historic Mount Baker Apartment Building. This location offered a number of benefits and it allowed Frida to expand her salon services to include spa treatments and massage therapy. By the end of 2004, however, the salon had already begun to outgrow its space. Finally, after months of searching, Frida found the location she had been looking for. Ironically, it was within walking distance from her shop at the Mount Baker Apartment Building.
Chapter Three: Zora's Styling Salon and Spa
The new building was in rough shape, but Frida could see the potential. In December of 2004, renovations began on the space that would become Zora’s Styling Salon and Spa. This new building was over 1800 square feet with five styling stations, a facial room, a massage room, and a spa pedicure and spa manicure room. Business continued smoothly for years, and Frida recognized the importance of providing high-end services to the Bellingham beauty environment. She was traveling back and forth from Bellevue, Seattle finding inspiration from both places. With the shift in economy came changes for the business. Frida realized that if she wanted to achieve all of her dreams, she would have to relocate back to her King Street location, downsizing so as to move forward. With key stylists moving away from Bellingham, Frida depended on herself to make all of Bellingham’s beauty dreams come true. Looking back, she says this was all worth it, because the change paved the way for the new Bellingham and Bellevue locations that opened in March, 2012.
Chapter Four: Zorganics Beauty Salons and Day Spas
Frida’s two new dream salons opened for business in Bellingham and Bellevue in March of 2012 and her beauty philosophy continues to revolutionize skin, hair, and body care in Western Washington. With more space and a more luxurious ambiance, the new salons have opened the door to a powerful new chapter of the Zorganics® line, and for our team of talented beauty artists.
We offer a full menu of services for women, men, and children. The atmosphere is warm and elegant. In Bellingham, the new location is on Meridian Street, conveniently located across from the Bellis Fair Mall. The 2,000 square foot building provides a comfortable setting for all of your relaxation needs. The Bellevue Salon, located on 108th Avenue NE, offers 2,400 square feet of luxury. At both locations, you will feel welcome as soon as you walk through our door.
