Dying your hair can be a disaster, especially if you choose the wrong box dye. Professional hair color has brighter pigmentation, proper developers, and is used by specialists. You just need to know where to find them.

Professional Distributors

Professional beauty supply stores such as Emiliani Enterprises "sell to the licensed trade only..." This means some distributors sell exclusively to licensed professionals or salons. If this is the case, contact your local salon to buy products, or ask your beautician if she can go with you.

Retail Stores

Retail beauty supply stores sell professional hair color at full price as opposed to professional suppliers who often discount for licensed workers. However, places such as Sally's Beauty Supply give discounts to card members and professionals. Most beauty supply stores have weekly sales.

Professional Hair Color Locations

Wholesale retail stores such as Marshall's, TJ Maxx, or Ross also sell discounted professional products. If you like a certain hair color brand, check out their websites to buy products. Online retailers such as Amazon or eBay also sell professional hair dyes.
