Visit THE SALON at ULTA Beauty to receive one of this fall’s standout haircuts:

“Invisible Layers” Haircut

The stylist at the salons at ULTA Beauty have a secret to adding volume to long hair without cutting lots of visible layers.  With special cutting techniques, layers are added to the haircut to provide hidden movement.  Hair is left long enough to style in an updo but it has added volume when worn long. This cut works best for shoulder length hair and longer.

“Convertible Color” Haircut

Have highlighting that you want to show off? The convertible color haircut is worn short at the nape, and longer on top, allowing for a middle or side part, or a slick look with hair worn straight back with the help of some hair gel.  Each style change shows off different highlights – the perfect cut for those who like short hair but want the versatility to change their look.

“Shattered” Haircut

The epitome of textured movement, the shattered haircut is a dramatic combination of layers that creates a sexy, tousled look.   The disconnected layers in this cut can work on any length of hair to produce an of-the-moment messy, yet stylish, appearance.

All haircuts at THE SALON at ULTA Beauty are styled using Redken and CHI professional products.
