OK – when was the last time you purchased your specialty beauty products in a physical store? A couple months? A couple years? Ever? We get it, shopping online is so quick and painless, and the idea of going to a location for something available online can have you thinking, “why the hassle?”

For some beauty shops in the U.S. and beyond, we argue stopping in is anything but a hassle–it’s a complete beauty blissfest. A beauty-lover’s getaway.
