  • Ulta Horrible shipping with broken products

    November 28th, 6am I excitedly ordered my twin daughters their first make-up sets, to be given as a Christmas gift. December 11, package finally arrived. Box destroyed. Very, very, poor packaging from inside and out. Box was at least 3 times too big, an extremely tiny piece of bubble wrap inside (not even enough to cover one of the gift sets. Gift sets were half open, broken make up within the set. Even their included catalog was partially wet and all the pages stuck together. Beware. More...

  • 2014 Cyber Monday is disappointing

    I placed an order on November 30th, and I just received an email on December 3rd that I won't even receive a tracking number until this weekend that will show when I will receive my order. I am leaving town on December 11th , and I needed those items for my trip. I also don't want my makeup sitting in a cold mailbox while I am gone. The rep I spoke to was very nice and apologetic, and she put me on hold to see what she could do to help. She was told that due to high volume on Cyber Monday that there is nothing Ulta can do, and I cannot cancel my order even though it has been... More...

  • Horrible place to work!!

    So I got hired when Ulta was opening a new store in my town, they promised me a part time job with between 15-25 hours a week. Well that was complete bullshit! Yea the first 2 1/2 weeks I had plenty of hours because I was helping open the store, but as soon as the store opened my hoirs got cut to 1 5 hour day A WEEK! The managers were all clueless to how to run a store! So after asking multiple times if I could please get a few more hours I was taken off the schedule completely! All I heard was unkept promises about he I'd be getting more hours but never did! This place is a total joke... More...

  • Keratin treatment at Ulta complaint

    I received a keratin treatment at Ulta a month before my sisters wedding. I was assured that it would make my hair look healthier. I spent over2 hours at the salon and paid over $200 because the salon manager told me they could only "guarantee" the results if I purchased the Kerastraight shampoo and conditioner, so I did. After receiving the treatment my hair started coming out in clumps every time I washed or brushed it. It became so thin and unhealthy I had to buy temporary extensions to wear on a regular basis, especially for my sisters wedding. The most frustrating part is... More...

  • ULTA Terrible Service from Ulta.com

    First and LAST time to order from ulta.com website. Box was: 1. very overdue on delivery date, 2. very beat up/torn, 3. contained 2 dented, greasy used bottles of a product I did NOT order, 4. was MISSING 2 items I DID order. Upon calling "customer service" -- and this is a VERY misrepresented department title -- I was treated rudely, uncaringly and argumentatively. Was told a supervisor would call me back that evening. A "supervisor" -- again, I use this term loosely -- called me 3 days later and would NOT expedite my order of missing items! Then when I told him I just... More...

    I went to ulta in Riverdale UT yesterday 11-10-2014, to shop and apply for a seasonal Christmas job. The girl I spoke to was a sales associate was very sweet and kind enough to ask her manager standing 3 feet away. I her manager responded that yes! Indeed they did need help and were looking. When I asked, how I can apply. she responded very rude, snotty and made me feel like a second hand citizen. I am young, fashionable, up to date with fashion. I passed up a job with sephora.

  • Ulta Horrible Overall Service Salon

    TO WHOM EVER MIGHT ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT THEIR CLIENTELE: On Saturday, September 27th, I dealt with the worst service while trying to obtain a simple haircut and color from your represented company, Ulta. This is the second time I choose Ulta for the doing of my hair. After my first pleasant experience, I decided to go back and give it another try. What a BIG mistake! Let me begin with your internet services that are far from being precise. I decided to plan 3 days in advance and set an appointment online. The appointment confirmation was soon after emailed to me for Saturday 12 pm at... More...

    when i was in Ulta last week they offered me a free facial. I signed up. My appt was saturday at 2 and 230. They called friday to make sure I was still coming. I arrived at 2 only to have 4 people standing in line, there was no check or sense of organization. When asked i told they would be with me at some point. The philosy girls were very rude. I walked out without a facial and i will never go back to the Ulta at Keystone at the crossing again. Looks like the free facial cost you business More...

  • When Hair Dying Goes Wrong

    Used to enjoy going to Ulta for my beauty supply needs and decided to give the salon a try as well. Unfortunately, I had a terrible experience with the hairstylist at the Pearland, TX location. I told her I wanted to lighten my hair for the summer but ended up leaving with a much darker color than I walked in with. Very disappointing experiencing. It's not easy to do hair and I definitely do not recommend Candyce for ethnic hair. More...

  • Ulta: rude salesperson

    I have frequented Ulta for years. There is one employee at the Brodie location in Austin that is consistantly rude. I thought for the first few times when James took care of my purchases, he was just having a bad day or something. Hey, everyone has a bad day! He continously displays dismissive, rude behavior. Poor eye contact, ignores verbal interchange, and looks off in the distance as if he can't wait for you to leave, I am going to change my Ulta location that I shop. I have never had treatment like that from any other employee there. Have had great, friendly service from... More...

They were out of the one that I use so I decided to purchase online. Friday afternoon I attempted to place an order and it said there was a problem with the credit card.

  • Terrible Service

    I ordered from Ulta.com instead of going to the store because I was working long hours at work and thought it would be convenient. Couldn't have been more wrong. I never got my order, they never answered my emails, and when I called a second time and asked to talk to a supervisor, I was told no. A supervisor might call me back in the next 48 hours. I'm hoping they will refund my money, but since their representative told me it was UPS's "fault" that my package was damaged, I'm not sure they will. Never again. More...

  • Horrible experience

    I went to the ultra salon in mt plesant South Carolina. It was by far the worst experience of my life. The girl I talked to instructed the girl doing my hair to dye it instead of outing bleach in it because I wanted to go a medium to dark blonde. My hair turned out bright orange and they charged me an extra $20 to put some Toner in it because they messed up. My hair is bright orange and when I went in to get my money back the salon manager was horribly rude. I would never come back after that experience and I will be sure to inform anyone who's looking into their salon to not come... More...

    I have a pretty frizzy tightly curled afro and I heard about the KeraStraight service offered at the Ulta salon in Midland TX. I called the salon and asked about the treatment. I spoke to a gentleman about the treatment and emphasized my hair type and texture. I asked him several times if the treatment would reduce my frizz and make my hair more manageable and he said it would. I made it clear i wanted to retain my curls but lose the frizz. I also asked him if the woman who did these treatments would be comfortable with my hair saying i'd rather not go there and waste my time and he... More...

  • Terrible management

    The managers, Kristen and Katelyn, are two of the the most incompetent people I've ever met. First off, they work in the beauty industry and look horrific. Their outward ugliness reflects their general attitudes as well. Kristi has fried blonde hair with skin only a mother could love. You would think being the manager of a store would maybe away her to put on a little makeup. Katelyn prides herself on being the GM and that she's worked there since she was 16. It doesn't surprise me, she is also quite unnatractive with HORRIBLE skin AND hair, and her attitude makes her even... More...

I was offended because she brought up porn with the employee next to us. She discussed her last vacation. I told her I don't look at porn, it's offensive and disgusting. She asked me why.

    I was lied to about the price when I made an appointment and was scheduled with a stylist who charged 2x what the advertised price was. My stylist was an hour late for my appointment.

    The ulta on Barrett pkwy in kennesaw, ga does not give each customer the same attention. I have walked in several times and received no greeting unlike nearly every other customer in the store. Not sure why there is more favorable customer service for certain people but this is something that makes me choose Sephora over Ulta. Not to mention, they're always out of stock of the same products. I recommend giving equal customer service to each customer.

Three hours the beauticians struggled to straighten my hair with disastrous results, I looked worse than when I walked in the store.

    I have decided I'd rather go without products than try to shop at the ULTA at Gurnee, IL - across the street from Gurnee Mills. This is the third time I've gone to this store (weekday, evening) and stood in a line of at least 8 patrons waiting to checkout, while only one cashier is at the front. Several other employees walk around the store with their fingers clearly up their XSS - and we stand at the counter speechless.
