This has always been MY BEAUTY SHOP in Hackensack. A few months ago, I did a sleep study and when I came home I could not get the glue out of my hair from the EEG stickers that had been attached to my head. I was genuinely in a state of panic.
I love my hair. Whether flat ironed or afro puffs, I enjoy my hair, but I was so frustrated I was in tears with exhaustion. I was threatening my own hair in the mirror with a pair of scissors 🤦♀️
Fortunately, I thought to call US Beauty Supply (yes, I really have their number in my phone) and ask the owner what I could do to get it out. She suggested weave bond remover. I know she heard the panic in my voice! I was sure I wouldn’t get an answer because it was so early in the morning. Just minutes after 9 a.m. and she’d answered!
It never even crossed my mind to buy weave glue remover, but I covered my hair in a plastic cap (so my hair wouldn’t stick to fabric) and a hat and jetted out the door!
I rushed over to the store, bought some of the remover she suggested and got my hair together in less than an hour! She had recognized my voice when I called and knew exactly who I was. We had a couple laughs while she rang me up. That’s good business!
US Beauty Supply has a good range of products throughout the store mostly focused on skincare and haircare. You’ll find a great assortment of cleansers, conditioners, detanglers and coloring as well as wigs (for fun or pricier human hair varieties).
You won’t find much in the way of nail care besides the very basics like glue, a few polishes, etc. The same for lashes which is a shame. Instead of the wall space that is currently occupied with faux jewelry and earrings that I doubt sell much, they might want to invest in a range of well-selling nail products. Maybe just a few to start like a few IBD UV nail builders and such. I’d much rather walk down the street to grab what I need than order online and wait.
For those types of items, for in-person shopping I head to Sally Beauty on Hackensack Avenue in Hackensack, New Jersey. But US Beauty Supply is definitely a longtime neighborhood champion in the way of beauty products at reasonable prices with friendly and polite service all the time.
Pro shopper trick
Leave your large bags in the front of the store while you shop. They’ll gladly put your bags behind the register so you can shop hands free. The aisles are a little tight and I’ve knocked over a lotion or 2 in my time by backing up to make room for a neighbor shopper and having my bag connect with and drag a product right off the shelf and onto the floor. Just be considerate.
There are plenty of products, so make it easy for everyone while you’re looking, touching, smelling and reading labels! 😇
