As the decade of excess, the '80s, drew to a close, busy women wanted to pare down -- to simplify their lives. In 1990, we saw a perfect opportunity to do just that by combining the best of three worlds under one roof -- Salon, Department Store, and Drug Store. ULTA was born -- the first ever one-stop-shop for lipstick, performance hairspray, luxury perfume, and a lot more. By marrying salon expertise with prestige and popular brand cosmetics, ULTA became a single beauty destination that goes above and beyond other retail stores -- it's a community where women interact via the salon, and experience outstanding beauty advice in a relaxed help-yourself shopping atmosphere.
