This nationwide chain of 1,500 stores is owned by Alberto Culver, the V05 folks. So they have plenty of factory-direct products, many of which are for professional use only. This means high quality, large sizes, and good prices.
TTius, you can get a 16-ounce can of hair spray by TRESemme, Alberto’s salon brand, for about half-price. Other brands sold at discount include Aussie Moist shampoos, Jheri Redding Volumizers,” Infusium, and Faberge.
Sally also carries those generic hair products made with the same ingredients as expensive name brands. Aura products, which copy the Aveda line, save you about half the cost of those salon exclusives. You’ll find generic versions of Paul Mitchell and Sebastian hair products too. Plus nail and skin care items, full lines of ethnic hair products, and discounted professional hair dryers and curling irons. Be sure to check the Reduced for Quick Sale and Cheaper by the Case sections, too. Open seven days.
