If you're a New Yorker, no doubt you know Ricky's NYC. And if you haven't heard about the beauty store, now's your chance to get the virtual experience, as the company has joined the e-commerce world. Now the rest of the country can experience the beauty bounty without the crowded atmosphere — and the stores can get pretty packed.
The chain, which specializes in hair care, cosmetics, and unusual fashion accessories, has somewhat of a cult following. It's a bit Urban Outfitters, a touch Spencer's, a little upscale apothecary, and your local beauty emporium combined. Ricky's carries everything from the goofy Burger King Flame Body Spray ($4) to the classic Mason Pearson Popular hairbrush ($151) to the odd Bacon Bandages ($6) to professional hair color. Have you shopped at Ricky's?
