Sometimes, when working in a salon, you might notice that the clients are all very similar in terms of their hair. Some stylists get a bit tired of doing the same old highlights and color that they do every day. A diverse clientele is part of what keeps a stylist’s career interesting, so don’t feel bad if you get bored occasionally, but know that you have options for more stimulating work environments.

Ulta Beauty is one of those exciting options. Las Vegas-based Ulta Elite Stylist Takeyra Shipps (@hair_bytakeyra) is a wealth of knowledge about all things hair, including texture, color and extensions, and she is also a member of the award winning Ulta Beauty Design Team. Shipps loves the variety her Ulta career offers, from the clients that sit in her chair to the special projects she gets to work on all over the country.

See below for a look at Shipps’ range of work and how her Ulta career keeps her looking forward to each day.

Curly Girls

Color Correct

Although Shipps doesn’t like to heavily criticize anyone else’s work, she knew that this client would look much better with a bit of a color correction to the halo highlight placement she had gotten previously. Then Shipps was able to work her color blocking magic, completing the beautiful look.
