The Battle of the Bang

The Beauty Supply Outlet

I recently made a HUGE decision … to cut bangs! That may not seem like a big decision, but for someone who has had the same hair cut for the last 10 years … big decision! I walked away loving my new do until I showered and tried to do the bangs myself and it was an EPIC failure. My bangs looked like tree’s … straight and stiff.

I had two problems to work with: one being that I had to find the time every other day to blow dry my hair straight since I have naturally wavy hair which I really don’t see wavy working with well with the bangs and two, figuring out the right products to make these bangs look normal.

I went to The Beauty Supply Outlet which was the only place I knew would have a selection of the products I would need to maintain these puppies and walked out with a bag full of brushes, a new flat iron (that was on sale woot woot) and combs to try out and … I still could not perfect the beauty of the bang though they were soooo much better than before. Talk about a complete coincidence, a month later I was offered a chance to go to The Beauty Supply Outlet (at Yonge and Eglinton) to help with my beauty routine and I happily accepted since my last visit I went in for the sole purpose to buy brushes and didn’t even look around or see what they would recommend (my bad).

The Beauty Supply Outlet

The Yonge and Eglinton Store

First off let me say that I actually took the time to walk around the store and was so shocked because they had the specialty shampoo and conditioner that I normally order through my regular salon and takes over a week to get, and best of all is that it was so much cheaper at The Beauty Supply Outlet (don’t I feel dumb) not to mention a lot of the other high end brands (Joico, Paul Mitchelle etc). Secondly, they were so extremely helpful with taking the time to walk me around show me products that would help me tame these suckers. I hate to say it, but all those brushes I bought previously were all wrong (oops by bad), so this visit I walked away with a new ceramic brush in the right size and a salon quality blow dryer which I have to say, both made a WORLD of difference. She even convinced me to not always straighten my hair and leave it natural (and only blow dry my bangs – I will let you know how that goes).

My purchases

I am always looking for great deals, especially when I am constantly buying products for my hair and The Beauty Supply Outlet really does have them. Not only was my shampoo and conditioner cheaper, I saw the product I use for my wavy hair, two for $30.00 when I have been previously buying them for $20 each. Oh, did I mention that I bought my new flat iron on sale and my blow dryer (those are the big ticket items that you want to get a deal on).

I do very much appreciate when staff members take the time to listen to their customers problems (whatever those may be, in my case battling the bang) and provide you with solutions and that is exactly what this staff member at The Beauty Supply Outlet did and for that I am grateful.

I’m also excited about the weekly Red Hot Deals available on the website – check out this month’s deals here
