this is the WORSE i repeat Worse Ghetto, low class, messy, unorganized, worse CUSTOMER SERVICE PLACE i have ever been to.. As of 02-20-2012 all the rude ass representatives that work there should be fired, they always seem like they don't want to help you anyways, they are "so busy" chatting about un work related BULLCRAP that they seem to forget a customer walked in and needs help!.. I hate this place, even though the location is so convenient, because I live in south MPLS, but I swear to you Ill drive across town before I spend my money at this South MPLS location, But hey go ahead and see for yourself I DARE YOU, Im not writing this to stop their business, Im hoping maybe the management behind this store will fix the team they have working for them, or perhaps pay them more, maybe the rude ass reps, will appreciate work more, ugh!! *oh btw im pissed, because they have good prices, but its not worth the service**

I re-discovered Variety after moving from Mpls to Woodbury and needing extensions for my daughter (we have American Indian hair, not African). (I used to shop Variety all the time 10+years ago) I brought a sample of an old extension in & the man & woman behind the counter immediately knew off the tops of their heads what colors they had that would match! I had to buy 2 colors to match what I had, but the price for 2 bags of 14" hair was the same price I'd been paying for ONE bag at the national supply store that I won't name, so I got double hair for the same price I had been paying. Variety didn't have what I needed in stock but ordered them then & there, & I got them 7 days later when I returned. The hair is superior quality than what we'd been using, the colors are a perfect match. The employees were GREAT, so friendly & helpful - we will only shop Variety now. :)

On several occasions when I was at the Lake Street store and Brookdale Mall store the employees are swearing and laughing at each others comments or jokes by the cash register as I wait behind the counter for over 20 minutes for assistant. I know that they see me waiting while they're visiting with other employees or friends, other times employees will walk pass me without offering any assistant. The first couple times I thought it was because they were busy helping other customers, but realized that was not always the case. I find myself chasing them just to hear them debate who should help me. It's too bad only they carry the product I like to buy. Anyone shopping there, make sure you set aside 1-2 hours to get anything stocked behind the counters, because assistance won't coming quickly.

I have never walked into Variety , and walked out with the hair i want. I have cancelled so many hair appointments because of this.
Variety is always out of stock and not just the location i frequent because i am always willing to drive just to get the hair, your logo should be: Is on order ! Please Please Please do business as if the majority of your customers were white and not Black. Maybe all could be happy then !

Contrary to popular belief, there are African Americans in the suburbs of MN. The local drug store, Target, and Wal-Mart will not stock the products that we need for our hair or our skin. I really laugh when I see Halley Berry, Beyonce, Mary J Blige, and Queen Latifah on signage in the cosmetics aisle, and on the shelf there is not one product that matches my skin or my hair. I applaud Variety for its variety. We need more of them. I live in Shakopee and the African American population out here is growing thus does our need for a real beauty supply and salon. There are a lot of empty comercial spaces that would make for a succesfuly new Variety right here in Shakopee. Shakopee Town Square mall is one of them. I gladly drove to North MN to get my products, and will continue to support Variety now that they have a closer location in Bloomington until you open a location in Shakopee I pray.

Variety Beauty Supply is an ally to those people who have thick hair from their African descendants. Without Variety I would be stuck with the products that local drugstores stock in accordance to how they rate their African American cliental. They specialize in wigs, synthetic and real hair, pre-mixed relaxers, greases galor, and shelves and shelves of stylings aids and oils. And its all not behind the counter my friends!

PROS: Anything your hair needs is literally there.
CONS: They have cheap Grab Bags and I'm a sucker.
