The Beauty Supply Warehouse

The Big B.S.S.
Whenever I'm watching YouTube videos and there is a product suggestion I'm always certain I'll be able to get my hands on it.  I go to Ulta for anything high end or the Big B.S.S. (beauty supply store) in Aurora for everything else.  If you're in Denver or Aurora, Colorado this place is a must see!

The official name is the Beauty Supply Warehouse and it is located near the intersection of 6th and Potomac just off highway 225.  It used to be the old Skate City from my younger days but is now home to all things hair.  This place doesn't just carry a lot of different brands but in most cases they have the complete line.  Items from Palmer's, Mane n' Tail, Mizani, Hawaiian Silky, Aphogee, IC Fantasia and many more.  I'm not kiddin'.  The first time I went in there I didn't even know what to do with myself.  Sadly, there are a lot of products there that contain silicone, mineral oils and petroleum.  You know the products I'm talking about; the ones that say they're for ethnic hair.  Still, I love the selection of Annie's rollers, hair accessories, satin head coverings and synthetic hair.  Yes, I said hair!  If you are looking for half wigs, lacefronts or hair for braiding you should definitely stop in.  (Even if you just want to get a look at a product before buying online.)

Aisles and Aisles of Hair Products!
There is also a salon inside and usually a vendor or two.  I haven't looked into having any hair or nail services done there because I'm a DIYer to the core.  The stylists and nail artists always seem to be pretty busy though.

Rollers and Kanekalon Braiding Hair
When I stop in I usually grab my favorite shampoo by Elasta QP, rollers, Olive Creme Moisturizer by Hollywood Beauty and my Cholesterol conditioner.  I also like the fact that they carry a wider selection of the Organic Root Stimulator (ORS) products and the ECO Styler gels.   If I finally get my courage up I may stop back in soon for a half wig or maybe just a drawstring pony.  Last I checked the 100% Kanekalon braiding hair was under $4 (USD) per pack!  Hmmm. . . now where did I see that braiding tutorial?

    1. Stoppin' in here is always a treat. I have to practice major restraint but it's still fun to look around! :)
