You take a huge chance with Ulta.  I had an uncertified girl try to give me a manicure there one day, until I asked her point blank if she knew what she was doing.  No, she said- I’m sure the management there was horrible.  That’s actually illegal in Texas to professionally represent yoursef as a nail tech, hairdresser or cosmetologist without a license.  One time thing?  Maybe.  But it put me off for their other services.  I’d only use them if I’d used them before and saw their license.

I haven’t used them for those services, because they’re actually more expensive here in LA. But if you feel comfortable with them and maybe make sure that who ever you consult with, that they will be the one that will be doing the styling. I hope it works out for you!!

i actually am a stylist at Ulta, and each salon personnel here is licensed by the State of Michigan. Don’t be confused by the ladies who work in “prestige” who sell the makeup are not the actual makeup artist. some of them may actually be a makeup artist or have a cosmetology license, but they are not employed by Ulta Salon. those ladies (and gentlemen) are not technically allowed to apply an entire face of makeup or charge you. The stylists (or “designers” as the company calls them) and aesticians are licensed and they are the employees who will give you a professional makeup application. So yes, it is a safe bet! I’m sure this varies Ulta to Ulta, but you may want to ask for the aestician to apply the makeup because typically they have more experience with makeup than the designers (although i am one and i do makeup applications all the time.) However, we’re all trained and licensed! Even though I’m not a huge fan of the corporate policy, they do have to uphold their reputation so having an unlicensed salon employee would severly damage that for them. good luck!
