Plus, Design Team members get training for on-camera appearances and social media help.



“Our Ulta Beauty Design Team are appropriately nicknamed our ‘heart soldiers’ because they are responsible for bringing awareness, credibility and our ‘be-yourself’ culture to the hearts of beauty professionals everywhere,” says Ammon, Ulta Beauty Chief Artistic Director. “Watching them grow over the past two years has been one of the proudest parts of my career. If you need an example of what a team can accomplish when they are united by the right intention and pure trust in one another…look no further than this team.”
