Ulta Beauty Design Team Adds 6 New Members: Find Out Who!

The Ulta Beauty Design Team keeps growing and winning together. Out of over 200 applicants and after an immersive, four-day training and audition for 14 finalists, six stylists are joining the Ulta Beauty Design Team of beauty experts and ambassadors.


The newest Ulta Beauty Design Team members are Amanda Diaz (@aestheticbyamanda), Shyloh Hadley (@hairbyshyloh), Evgeniya Karpova (@jenyahair), Brittany Prater (, Ana Remon (@anitabeautypage) and Luis Rodriguez (@luisfernando_hair).


This Ulta Beauty Design Team class of 2023 will collaborate and work side by side with all 15 returning Design Team members across a range of creative projects, including:


  • Industry trade show events
  • Ulta Beauty-led education opportunities
  • Photoshoots
  • Fashion week collaborations
  • And more!


In addition, each Design Team stylist will continue to welcome Ulta Beauty guests in their salons, driving a thriving business behind the chair as service experts. Now at 21 members and seven years strong, the Design Team represents hands-on service professionals at nearly 1,400 Ulta Beauty salons across the country.


“Our Design Team brings to life all the best elements of the tremendous culture, beauty expertise and career possibilities we enjoy here at Ulta Beauty,” says Anna Manukyan, Ulta Beauty Senior Director of Education and Creative. “We welcome our newest members and look forward to celebrating their diverse skills, perspectives and artistry.” 


At auditions held February 27 through March 2 at the LaSalle Hotel in Chicago, experienced Design Team members were present to meet and greet the 2023 finalists at an opening night cocktail reception. They also joined finalists the next day to lend pointers and guidance during trainings and demos.


“The Design Team’s footprint and relevance in the industry keeps growing because of the work they are involved in, and the culture shift they are creating,” says Haley Valadez, Senior Manager, Design Team. “It is a strong group that keeps winning together because each person is so talented individually, and also generous in helping and mentoring each other. The Design Team spirit is definitely one of collaboration, not competition,” she adds. 


Haley says that while narrowing the field of 200 applicants was challenging at every stage, “it’s gratifying to see the passion, expertise and respect throughout our Ulta Beauty salon community. I can’t wait for everyone to see what our Design Team creates next.”
