All About Beauty Supply and Salon: Same Name, New Owner

Old Town Monrovia is home to nearly a dozen hair salons, nail boutiques, barber shops and day spas. But All About Beauty Supply and Salon, which assumed new ownership just a few months back, isn't just another hair salon - it also features an extensive selection of make-up, skin care lines, and men's products such as gels and electric razors, among other items.  

Back in October, All About Beauty, located at 121 S. Myrtle Avenue next to Baskin-Robbins in the Vons shopping center, was purchased by engineer-turned beauty supply store owner Ahmad Abdul. Mr. Abdul brings to the store nearly 14 years in the business: since 1998, he has run a similar beauty supply store in Covina.

As soon All About Beauty's doors opened under Mr. Abdul's ownership, he quickly expanded the scope of his Monrovia store to include other services, such as Brazilian blowouts, having an on-site makeup artist, and adding two new stations for a total of three hairdressers.

Of course, he is also sticking true to the store's name by selling plenty of types of beauty supply products - and he is always willing to start selling new items on the customers' request. His latest item: real hair extensions.

For Mr. Abdul, the timing of purchase of All About Beauty happened to coincide with the closure of long-time business, Monrovia Beauty Supply formerly at 509 S. Myrtle Avenue. Now, it is one of the only stores in Old Town dedicated primarily to selling beauty supply products.

Hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturdays 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Phone number is (626) 357-7865.
