US cosmetics retail giant Sally Beauty has admitted it may have been hit by another data breach after revealing details of a new investigation into “unusual activity involving payment cards” at some of its stores.

The firm released the following brief statement on Monday from their Texas headquarters:

“Sally Beauty Holdings, Inc. is currently investigating reports of unusual activity involving payment cards used at some of our US Sally Beauty stores. Since learning of these reports, we have been working with law enforcement and our credit card processor and have launched a comprehensive investigation with the help of a leading third-party forensics expert to aggressively gather facts while working to ensure our customers are protected. Until this investigation is completed, it is difficult to determine with certainty the scope or nature of any potential incident, but we will continue to work vigilantly to address any potential issues that may affect our customers.”

The incident comes just over a year after a major data breach hit virtually all of the retail chain’s 2,600 stores.
