    I cut my friends hair for the Manager and Assistant Manager to watch. Then the manager took me to the back office and conducted to the interview. It was short; she looked at my portfolio, asked me some questions, and ended up offering me the job on the spot.

    spoke with manager for about 30 minutes about myself and my goals then they called me back for a technical where they watch you color,highlight cut and style a guests hair. They allow you to use their color (Redken) for the technical or to bring in your own color. They watch everything from the consultation to the blow out but you forget they are they because they aren't right on top of you. They also have you do a short quiz on your knowledge of haircolor.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty in January 2016.

    Interview

    I have not had an actual sit down interview but I've had a technical. I brought in a model and had to do a color, cut, and style. Everything went smoothly and I've been asked to come back for another interview. The only thing I struggled with was time. I'd never used Redken color and I had to look up mixing ratios and processing times as I went along.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Ulta Beauty (Short Pump, VA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed with the General Manager and was offered the job right after the interview pending a technical interview where I would bring a model. I accepted (only because I needed a job) and then left for another interview at a different salon. Thankfully I got that job as well and accepted. I did not want to work for Ulta because the general manager was rude and made me feel stupid during the interview.
