Makeovers: Cosmetics & Beauty Store {+ HG Deal Steal!}

Written by:

While you are walking down Washington Street, you may pass by a small shop nearing the corner of 3rd and Washington. Makeovers is a beauty supply store and salon that has been in Hoboken for over 15 years. Personally, I had never been in it until recently, but when I went inside — I had to share my finds!

Located at 302 Washington Street, Makeovers is a Hoboken staple for beauty supplies and other self-care supplies. While there, I spotted some great mainstream beauty brands, including: Too Faced, Essie,  Opi, Bed Head, and more.

Huge Too Faced Section.

Too Faced Natural Eyes – one of my faves! And here I only thought it was sold at Sephora.

Makeovers 5

Tons of supplies, basically anything you’d ever need to make yourself feel pretty and pampered.

I was also enthralled by the abundance of hair electronics. And of course, a TON of Essie & Opi polish.

 From the outside, you’d never know that Makeovers was a salon {well—besides it’s name}. But yes, lo & behold:

While I have never personally gotten a blowout or cut & color here, I have had several friends who have and thought it was great! You can’t beat the prices –and what’s nice is that Makeovers is a very small, intimate store so you’re definitely getting one on one attention. The staff is extremely friendly, which always makes it a pleasant visit. Makeovers has been owned by the same owner {Peter} for 17 years, which I’m pretty sure makes it one of the longest standing salons and beauty supply stores in town! Make sure to stop in and check out all of the great products and supplies while shopping locally! Love it.
