I went to Kara during the "Cut a Thon" Ulta had to raise money for Breast Cancer Research and Awareness. I was a little nervous, as part of me thought that, because of the event, I wouldn't get a quality cut, but rather a quick snip and go. I was so wrong! Kara was attentive and really took to heart what I told her about my hair. She listened as I explained past bad haircuts and really took the steps to make sure I was happy. I went from long hair (mid-back) to chin length and Kara gave me an amazing cut. I couldn't be happier. She will be my go-to from now on! Thank you, Kara! I would highly recommend her to anyone with curly hair!

I had a horrible salon experience back when i was 8 years old which lead to me cutting my own hair up until now. When i read the reviews for Ulta Salon and Kara in particular i was scared to make an appointment, because well once you have had the kind of experience i had, had you really are skeptical about going back...Any who i booked my appointment and lets just say it was amazing :) Thanks to Kara I am no longer afraid to say i need a hair cut. When i arrived she asked about my curls and got a sense of what i really wanted and needed in a hair cut and she did all that she could and then some to make my hair cut not only worth it, but it was also not terrifying. i ended up with the bouncy springy curls that i love and some care tips for my hair as well (not to mention another appointment to come back). Kara took care of me and my curls and all the while working around my frizz. this naturally curly hair dresser knows her stuff and i am happy that i finally found someone who can give me and my curly hair what i want. Lord knows its hard to find a hairdresser you can trust with natural curls, but I think i found a keeper lol :) Thank you Kara!

I called to make an appointment with Kara. Kara was unavailable so I dealt with Anna which is not only experienced with curly hair but is a redken specialist and is a make-up artist from fort lauderdale, florida. She was so helpful. My hair was a mess and I have had several bad haircuts in the past few years. She gave me the best cut and color I have ever had in my life. Anna did not only give me my best experience at a salon but gave me tips on how to manage my curly hair. She was very professional about everything and made my salon experience relaxing and stress free. I am now a loyal client to ulta.

I finally found the woman I've been searching for all my life......a hairdresser who can actually cut and style curly hair!!! She was not intimidated by my lion's mane and did not mention straightening once!! For the first time I left a salon feeling good. Kara at Ulta Salon is awesome. I highly recommend her. She was a really nice, down to earth woman and she does a really good job.

Kara was extremely rude to me over the telephone. She belittled me and I was made to feel as if I was incompetent and under-valued as a customer. I have been a faithful member of this salon for over 7 years. Because of this awful experience I chose to discontinue my patronage. I do not reccomend her as a stylist.

New to the area (and high humidity), a curly coworker suggested I go to Ulta and have Kara work with my curls. As a result, my curls are much more shiny, defined and cut to compliment my face shape. I was especially impressed with her curl by curl cut and tips for crown volume and frizz-free ringlets.
