I go to this beauty supply warehouse often. They have a WIDE variety of products. The staff is more that willing to help you find your items. This is also a great place to go for braiding hair, ponytails, nail polish, eyelashes, etc. You can use your ATM card or credit card also. They have so much hair to choose from that you can get LOST in the store. LOL. Seriously, go check it out. You will be surprised. I understand why it is called the WAREHOUSE. See you there.

It's not Beverly Hills, it's Oakland..this i didn't mind. i went into the place looking for a wig. i'm ethnic, thus it was difficult to find the type of wig that wasn't ""glossy"" or just plain ""wiggish""..never found one..When i walked in, the Asians can barely speak English.
I was directed to go to the ""wig room"" which was basically an open space with a counter. An old woman was helping people find the ""right"" wig. i sat in horror watching this old asian woman telling several clients at different times: ""This rook good"" ""This rook good on you""..There was one woman in particular, a heavy set African american lady whom the wig lady donned a brassy blonde fall wig on. When the ""Wig lady"" walked away ..the young lady looked over at me and asked ""Excuse me, what do you think?"" i gave the ""slash across the throat"" gesture..she said, ""I thought so""..i pointed to a wig that was far more fitting..she tried it on, and liked it..
i realized the wigs that the ""Wig lady"" says ""rook good"" are the most expensive in their collection - which wasn't saying much..i tried on a few, and didn't like the selection at all, just cheap wigs..as i was walking out, the ""wig lady"" said ""you pay one dolla"" it was for the wig cap..these were strewn on a desk, and you had to put them back when you were done...they actually looked like used black knee-high stockings..
i gave her $20.00, she didn't have change, pointed to the front to go get it..at the front the woman said, ""you have to wait for someone to buy something, i can't give you change""..so i walked out..there was hardly anyone in there TO buy anything in the first damn place...
