About Us

Founder Bernadette Ferry-Verbonach was introduced to the world of professional skin and nail early on. Like most aspiring students she was passionate, eager to learn and ready to work hard. Employed as an aesthetician and nail-tech at a handful of high-end salons and with exposure to Merrill Norman and Nelly De Vuyst product lines, Bernadette learned that her current employer was closing their doors. Bernadette was back on the hunt to find employment in a salon where she could do what she loved in an atmosphere that fostered high standards and practices. After some weeks of looking for the right environment, Bernadette’s father encouraged her to open her own business and offered support. 

In 1990, at the age of 21, Bernadette opened FACADE European Skin Care Salon in Mt. Lebanon featuring the Nelly DeVuyst skin care line. Some 25 years later and still focused on high quality skin care and nails, Bernadette and her professional team of skilled technicians are a fixture in the Mt. Lebanon community while satisfying a wide range of customers. 




“I couldn’t have done it all these years without my dedicated and talented staff. Experienced, licensed, educated, and friendly, they are the best and taking care of all your beauty needs.”  

What our customers have to say...

“I’ve been a FACADE customer for more than 20 years now. People think I’m 10 years younger and I owe that to Bernadette and her expertise in Nelly DeVuyst products and proven skin care practices. I have also never met a salon that did a better nail service, pedicure, waxing, and electrolysis. Their attention to detailed is unparalleled.”
