This is the first in the “Sally” series of time management games. The graphics have a late 90s sort of look to them, with a very Asian feel, sort of like the SNES game of Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon Another Story. This is Sally’s first time out, running a beauty salon that features basic services like cuts, colour, wash, blow dry, barista service and others. There is a trick to getting through these levels quickly and efficiently in the Sally games. When shopping for upgrades, hold back your cash to go for the big ticket items of extra employees. Once these guys and girls are in place, then go for the gear. The extra work stations, more comfortable waiting area, coffee upgrades, and even the aromatherapy candles are great, but having all those extra hands to help you out will cut down on all that extra clicking about.
There are many beauty shop time management games out there, and this is one of the better ones. I like the fact you keep your upgrades throughout the whole of the game, instead of having to implement new ones whenever the locations of your store changes. It makes it easier to hold on to earned cash, and save for other upgrades. Even though I reviewed the latest Sally game first, this is a good one to start with. So, make an appointment at Sally’s Salon right now!
