Ulta Beauty is a mid-range to high-end grouping of cosmetics and beauty supply stores, each of which has a salon included.
With over 1,100 stores currently located around the United States, Ulta is a growing brand that appeals to customers who want premium services in a more luxurious environment than they might find at other lower-tier chains.
Ulta Salon prices start at about $38 for an adult haircut and $20 for a kids haircut.
Why Choose Ulta Salon?
Each Ulta Salon is located within an Ulta Beauty store and usually takes up 10 percent of the space. Therefore, customers can get their beauty shopping done while they also get their hair cut and styled.
Each store is clean and well-lit and carries a variety of mid-range and premium brands for makeup, fragrance, skin care, hair care and more. This one-stop shopping and service format appeals to many adults who are busy and who do not have the time to travel around town.
Ulta is also known for its amazing stylists. Because of the slightly higher prices than can be expected at other lower-end salons, stylists have plenty of time for full consultations with their clients.
They can take the time to discuss cuts, styles, hair care and colors to give a truly personalized experience.

Ulta Salons offer a full range of hair and beauty services at each location. While hair cuts and styling may be the most popular choices for the majority of clients, perms, colors and texturizing services are also popular.
Each visit begins with a full one-on-one style consultation. Stylists can also do special occasion hairdos. Other hair services include blowouts, steam infusions, bang trims, clipper cuts for men and keratin treatments
Skin care appointments can include face mapping with a skin therapist who will teach clients how to best care for their skin. Facials and microdermabrasion are other great solutions for such skin concerns as oiliness and aging.
At the brow bar, customers can get brow or facial waxing, brow tinting and lash extensions for natural or full brows. Nail care is done with OPI gel colors.
