Whether your hair is fine, thick, dry, oily, frizzy or flat, we can all agree on one thing: Quality hair care products can get pricey. From shampoos and conditioners to special serums and styling tools — and all of the mousses, gels and protective sprays in between — you're probably spending more money on your hair routine than you even realize. That's why it's crucial to take advantage when a good sale comes around. Luckily for you, one of Ulta Beauty's biggest savings events is still happening!
The retailer's Gorgeous Hair Event kicked off on May 10, but they're still dropping new products at irresistible prices every day through May 29. How irresistible? Everything included in the sale is slated to be 50% off. That's right, half off! Which is why now is the best time to stock up on your favorite products and get double the bang for your buck.
To help you get shopping, we picked out some of the best deals from each day. Added bonus: Most are under $30! And don't worry, all of those must-have hair products featured in the beginning of the sale may not be 50% off anymore, but they're still available for you to scoop up.
