I have a passion for beauty products, but I can tell you that not all stores are created equally. Have you ever tried finding someone to answer your beauty questions in a mass retailer or drug store? Even if you find a person in the beauty department, chances are they know nothing about the products for sale. When I shop, I want to be able to ask which nail polish will give me the longest wear or which eye shadow has the deepest pigment color. And, I want a knowledgeable answer.

Professional Beauty Supply Stores
I recently stopped by our Sally Beauty store in the city to see what they offer. If you haven’t been to a Sally Beauty store yet, they are a line of professional beauty supply stores for consumers and professionals. Sally Beauty currently owns and operates over 2,800 stores worldwide. There are over 6,000 professional quality products for hair, face, skin and nails. Did you know that there are 269,965 Sally Beauty transactions a day? WOW!
I was really quite impressed with the products they offered at our Sally Beauty store. I decided to take my son and daughter with me to see what they have. Sarah is 21 and loves beauty products almost as much as I do. Of course, she has vastly different ideas about the products that work for her. She loves the vibrant, neon hues and changes her hair color regularly based on her mood. She was thrilled to find that Sally Beauty had Orly nail polish in the neon shades she loves to wear. They also carry OPI & China Glaze which are two of my favorite brands.
My son is 16 and a cosmetology student at our local technical school. I saw him checking out the professional products they offer like the capes, clippers and mannequin heads. When he graduates next year and takes his state board exam, he’ll need to stock up on all of these supplies when he starts working.
What can I find at these stores?
I had no idea that Sally Beauty offered such a great selection of products. We found make up, nail polish & nail care, hair color, and skin care products. They even have hair straighteners, brushes, hair accessories, totes and body jewelry. I really appreciate that they have a variety of different specials going on and there are signs near the products that qualify. We purchased two Orly nail polishes and received free Orly Argan Oil Cuticle Drops to hydrate and soften your cuticles. Of course, you can also sign up for the Sally Beauty Club to save even more money when you shop there.

I’ve been to the Sally stores back when my grandma was alive and still a beautician. They’re hair color is cool because it’s just bottles of color instead of the boxes we get at the store.
They have really changed a lot recently. I’m truly in love with their selection!
Interesting, I think I’ve only been to a Sally store once. I’ll have to try them out.
Definitely stop by, Liz. They have everything!
I really enjoy shopping at my Sally store in my area and find all my needs there.
Me too, Grace! Just love it!
I’m not a professional but I wouldn’t shop anywhere else for my haircare and color supplies. It’s great to have all the necessities (capes, gloves, bowls, brushes) without having to hunt them down. And I have to say I also LOVE their rewards program too!
Their rewards program is fantastic! Great way to save!
That is pretty awesome. I have recently started shopping at Sally Beauty – such great deals!!
They really do, Lena!
I haven’t been into Sally’s in a while, but they really do have the best prices on Salon items. So much better than buying it directly from the salon and paying so much more money than necessary. – Katy
That’s very true, Katy. I was surprised at how affordable everything was.
I don’t think I’ve ever been in a Sally Beauty Supply. Sounds like you can find just about everything you need to make you feel beautiful
You really can, Patty! Stop by sometime!
I used to have a Sally Beauty Supply right near me. I need to find one in my new area.
Definitely, Jen. They have an amazing selection!
I didn’t know that about your son, wow, great job for him. Sally’s seems like a perfect place to shop for these kinds of things.
Thanks, Shelley. I’m very proud of him. Sally Beauty does have a great selection.
Im sure we probably have a Sally Beauty Supply near me but havent seen one. I bet I could find all sorts of things I need in there!
You definitely could, Diane!
I love Sally’s and have one about a mile from me–lucky me! I purchased many of my hair extensions from them a few years ago. They used to have awesome coupons and I saved so much money with their card.
I just love their coupons!
