Naimie’s Beauty Center

Best Beauty Supplies, August 2014

The entrance to this two-story emporium is underwhelming, with a wig boutique to the left and a hair appliance outlet to the right. But ascend the stairs and you understand why Naimie’s Beauty Center has been a favorite of makeup artists and hair pros for 27 years. The tweezer section alone is a marvel: There must be 50 models. The perimeter of the shop is dedicated to cosmetics and features such big names as MAC and Nars along with lesser-known lines like Too Faced. We appreciate the breadth of products for those with curly hair as well as the attentive sales staff, none of whom work on commission, so there’s no hard sell.
