There is NO affiliate link in this post. Sally Beauty didn’t pay me or contact me. No freebees. I’m just crazy for Sally.

My mom has been raving about Sally Beauty Supplies forever but I never caught the bug.

Recently, I got a haircut for the first time in over a year (more on this very soon — great exciting news about a new salon coming to Pennington) and the person cutting my hair recommended several products I should buy at Sally Beauty. I went. And now I love Sally. I love it. Love love. They have basically all your beauty supply needs. Please note, I am a novice. And a bit of a beauty idiot. But for me, the selection is extensive. Local friends, Sally Beauty is located near Sam’s Club.

The first time I went, I felt so clueless looking for tools to straighten my hair. The very friendly sales girl gave me the overview, provided different price point options and was friendly. At a beauty supply store. Friendly.

Here’s a picture of my hair with curls. Phew. A girl’s gotta have options.

The most recent time I went to the store was because I realized that Sally sells generic hair products including a knock-off of Paul Mitchell’s Tea Tree shampoo which we sometimes buy at regular price. (Just so you know, this type of shampoo is amazing — it is minty and your head will tingle). And while I was there, I mentioned to the ever-awesome sales girl that I need something to hold curls but doesn’t turn crunchy. She lead me straight away to a product made by Beyond the Zone that didn’t cost more than $6. That’s a gal after my own heart.

I was so jazzed with the quality of her help, I actually wrote to the main headquarters to rave about her. She’s that GREAT. I also joined (in all of my enthusiasm and my lack-of-moderation personality) their “Beauty Club” which costs $5 and then you get a lot of discounts and promotions.
