Inspired by the unique beauty products she bought from apothecaries in Asia and Europe during her travels, Sherri Ziesche opened Beauty Company in 2002 to provide the highest quality, locally and internationally sourced skincare, nail, bath, body, hair and travel products to Russian Hill and the surrounding areas.

Exuberance is beauty.

Sherri Ziesche


A native California girl who grew up on the central coast, Sherri Ziesche has always had a passion for making people look and feel their best. She began her beauty career as a freelance makeup artist and esthetician. After a four year sabbatical that took her traveling around the world, Sherri returned to California to open an apothecary of her own. She hoped to “create a place where women and men could go to get superior services and personal attention without an ounce of pretension.” Her dream came true with the original Beauty Company location which launched in 2002. Known for providing luxurious, affordable, local and international products, Beauty Company quickly became a staple on Polk Street. In May 2007 Sherri opened doors to Salon, a cheery Euro-styled four-chair boutique adjacent to her immensely popular store.

Now with over 20 years experience, Sherri reinvented Beauty Company once again in June 2010. Her commitment to the beauty industry is impressive; she is constantly educating herself on new products and services which she incorporates to her store. Always friendly and approachable, Sherri strives to make each customer feel comfortable and welcomed. Her strong value of community has involved her in a number of local organizations.
