I recently had lunch with Hair Boutique's Karen Shelton, and afterwards was admitted into the locked inner sanctum of the HairBoutique.com's warehouse where all the many hundreds of very cool products are carefully (and lovingly packed) shipped on a daily basis. I was stunned to see the racks upon racks of labeled boxes that were stuffed to overflowing with all sorts of new products and goodies that I had no idea were being offered for sale to the public.
If you think you know all the good stuff you can get in the Hair Boutique Marketplace, think again! Let me run down the list for you:
