One of my favorite things about beauty supply stores is the wide variety of things you can find there. Unlike drug stores such as Eckerd or Rite Aid who devote only an aisle or two to beauty products, beauty supply stores have rows and rows of everything you could ever imagine. As an added bonus, the items are usually priced far cheaper than you’d find anywhere else. The only negative thing I have to say about them is that sometimes you have to be a licensed cosmetologist to buy certain things. On the other hand, sometimes the only thing that licensed professionals can get the Average Joe Public can’t is a discount on certain merchandise.
Another great thing about beauty supply stores is that the people who work there are incredibly knowledgeable about the different product lines. What makes a $20 curling iron different than its $200 counterpart? If you have questions about anything from tools of the trade to which conditioner will get rid of the green tint that chlorine leaves in blond hair, beauty supply stores are where to go. Also, you can get professional products that you can’t find anywhere else.
Beauty supply stores are a great place to go when you’re feeling kind of homely and you’ve got an extra $20 in your pocket. It’s at these beauty supply stores that you can find all of the materials you need to give yourself an amazing manicure and pedicure, detoxifying face mask and paraffin wax warmer for your feet or hands. You can also go to a beauty supply store when you need a new shade of lip gloss that makes drug store brands pale in comparison. I have saved thousands of dollars over the years by buying professional quality hair dye and dying my hair at home instead of going to a pricey salon and having a hair stylist do the exact same thing.
