Sally Beauty Company, Inc. began as a one-store operation in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1964. The Company expanded slowly until the 1980s, when it began to grow rapidly through acquisition and new store openings. In 1982, Sally moved its corporate headquarters to Denton, Texas following the acquisition of a Denton-based chain. In 1985, Sally acquired a major full-service (professional only) beauty supply distributor servicing the Midwestern United States. The growth of the full-service business led to the formation of the company now known as Beauty Systems Group LLC, focusing on distribution solely to the professional trade. New store openings and acquisitions continue to guide Sally’s expansion. In 1987, Sally became an international company with the acquisition of an affiliate in the United Kingdom. Today, Sally and its affiliates operate over 4500 stores throughout the United States and the world. Our international operations now extend to the United Kingdom, continental Europe, Puerto Rico, Canada, Chile, Peru, Colombia, Mexico. Both Sally Beauty Supply and Beauty Systems Group have successful and growing online (e-commerce) businesses. In 2006, Sally became a publicly held company with its shares traded on the New York Stock Exchange. Sally and its affiliates have long been industry leaders. Expertise in professional product merchandising, distribution and education provides the basis for a commanding presence in the global market. This, combined with strong domestic growth and international development, positions the companies for anticipated continuing success in future years. All subsidiaries and affiliates share Sally’s customer-driven operating philosophy and vision.

Reviews for Sally Beauty Supply

Reviews - What employees say

2.90 Employees say
2.18 Applicants say

Company Culture

They take the can do culture. But it's not actually applied.

Support from management

Managers sabotage well working employees

Teamwork

It's all left to the lower level associates. Most managers are caught up in petty squabbles.

Freedom to work independently

Micromanaging happens all the time

Internal Communication

Merchandising doesn't communicate with stores or IT. Decisions are made no one is updated.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Ideas that are well received need to be implemented. Management needs to put more effort into taking customer service opinion in regards to what works and what does not. Customer service needs more emphasis on business decisions as we are dealing with the customers on a daily basis. Changes need to be communicated to customer service so we can communicate correctly with the public.

What I like about the company

My company is working hard to ensure everyone feels equal. Our managers are approachable. Voluntarily overtime is offered for weekends.
