After owning a salon in Mexico, I moved to the U.S. and continued working at salons while focusing on haircolor and styling education for Wella and GHD. I was inspired by Ulta Beauty’s Pro and Design Teams working together at beauty events. I wanted to have a platform to share my knowledge, but also to promote values like diversity, inclusivity and representation in the beauty industry. 


Top 5 Reasons I Love Working at Ulta Beauty...

  1. The career growth is amazing. Many people on my team built up their books at the salon, and some were promoted to management and corporate positions. 
  2. I’ve been able to prove to myself and my loved ones that you can have a solid and certain career as a hairstylist, thanks to benefits like a 401(k) and paid vacation. 
  3. Ulta Beauty embraces and welcomes all races, skin tones, hair types, etc. As an immigrant, brown-skinned, Mexican, gay man I feel included and represented in images that showcase our brand but also in everything I was taught when I joined the team about respect for different lifestyles. 
  4. The possibility to get 70 percent commission is very unlikely to be matched in any other salon! 
  5. The education and passion that associates, educators, managers, and the Design and Pro Teams show for our beauty industry is like nothing I’ve seen.
