The Trick to Getting Salon-Grade Hair Every Day Can Be Found on Amazon
Don’t have time to hit the salon, but still want to look like you did? Amazon’s got you covered.
Taking yourself to get done up at the salon or spa is always a nice treat—but it can also be a hassle. Not only do you have to make room for the appointment in your schedule, but you also have to make sure nothing pops up to prevent you from going (and, let’s be real, something always seems to pop up). While we all want to treat ourselves, many of us really can’t dedicate the time to do so. Luckily, the internet tends to have tons of solutions to our IRL problems, and in this case, Amazon may be the answer.
The retail giant has a specially-curated professional beauty shop front, filled with all the luxurious products you’d normally get treated with at the salon or spa. Yes, that means you can order those Olaplex hair treatments, get them delivered right to your door in two days or less, and use them in the comfort of your home—all without ever having to leave that load of laundry unfinished.
Instead of schlepping to the salon to pick up that hair repair solution you can’t live without, Amazon’s digital beauty shop will be your new favorite time-saving hack. The storefront aims to make your life easier by placing salon-quality brands just a click away, and its selection includes tons of cult classics, like Oribe, Pureology, Moroccanoil, Ouidad, R+Co, amika, and more. While a majority of the shop sells hair products (including salon-worthy hair tools!), professional makeup, skincare, and nail care items are also available. So in addition to picking up a styling cream, you can also grab a dermatologist-approved vitamin C serum that’ll keep your skin glowing for days, no spa visit required.
While it’s possible to DIY your own at-home salon day by checking out all the professional goodies the shop has to offer, we’ve highlighted some of our favorite luxury hair products and tools that you probably never realized you could snag on Amazon.

Numerous customers note that this hair treatment oil from beloved salon brand Morrocanoil is actually sold at a lower price on Amazon than at their local salons. The treatment is infused with a hydrating formula of argan oil and vitamins that leave your hair extra shiny and smooth, plus it can be used on both damp and dry hair. “This stuff is amazing. It’s an oil but it dries and leaves your hair INCREDIBLE. My stylist used it on me at the salon but it was much more expensive so I came home, and of course, found it on Amazon. (Love you Amazon!),” wrote one customer.
