Same Day Delivery is a service we offer to deliver beauty from your local store as fast as possible--all through our partner, DoorDash. The Same Day Delivery order cutoff time is based on your local store's closing time; you'll see that at checkout. Orders placed after the cutoff time will deliver the following day.
Ulta Beauty Processing Time
Orders are typically processed for shipment in 1 to 2 business days.
Not all Shipping Methods are available for all shipping addresses. Refer to the Shipping details above for available Shipping Methods for your address.
All orders containing Hazardous Materials have restrictions. See below for details.
Certain items in your order may be considered Hazardous Materials (HAZMAT). Hazardous Materials are as follows: aerosol items, some alcohol-based items, items that contain contents under pressure, and others (e.g., hairspray, nail polish and items containing flammable, volatile or corrosive chemicals).
The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) requires ground-only shipment of Hazardous Materials due to air shipment restrictions and regulations. Therefore, these items cannot be shipped to all addresses.
All orders containing Hazardous Materials must be shipped via Standard and cannot be shipped via Expedited or Premium. All orders containing Hazardous Materials can only be shipped to addresses within the contiguous U.S. states and cannot be shipped to Alaska, Hawaii, U.S. Territories, PO Boxes or APO/ FPO addresses.
ulta.com does not ship to international addresses.

Orders placed with credit/debit card
- Your financial institution will place a temporary hold on the funds for your order as it processes. This is not a charge and the hold will be released once your order has shipped.
- You may receive more than one shipment notice as items in your order ship, but you will not be charged until we send you the final shipment notice. Once you receive the final shipment notice, your card will be charged and the temporary hold will be released.
- We only charge you for items that have shipped. Any item(s) that are canceled and/or can no longer be shipped will not be charged and your final shipment notice will contain an adjusted price.
Orders placed with Ulta Beauty gift cards
- Once you submit your order, the funds will immediately be deducted from your Ulta Beauty gift card.
- Hold onto your Ulta Beauty gift card until you receive your entire order. If we can't fulfill the portion of your order that was paid for with your gift card, we'll return the money to it when you get your final shipment email.
Orders placed with Ultamate Rewards points
- A temporary hold will be placed on the Ultamate Rewards points you've redeemed to pay for your order.
- Once your order ships and you've received your final shipment notice, the hold will be released and the points will be deducted from your account.
- How do I redeem my points online?
- Make sure you are logged in on Ulta.com and your Ultamate Rewards Member ID is displayed on your My Account page. Once you finish adding products to your bag, proceed to Secure Checkout and confirm your shipping and payment information. Under Payment & Billing, expand the 'Redeem Ultamate Rewards Points' field, select how many points you would like to redeem on this purchase and then place your order. You may redeem up to 4,000 points in a single online purchase and up to 10,000 points in a single in-store purchase. Any points remaining can be redeemed in a future purchase.
For Unsuccessfully Submitted Orders Placed with credit/debit card
Your financial institution will place a temporary hold on your card for the amount of the order when:
- An order is attempted, but not successfully submitted
- The order is ultimately fully canceled
The temporary hold is in anticipation of the order being shipped. You won't be charged for an unsuccessful order submission and the temporary hold will expire automatically within the timeframe set by your financial institution. This is typically 5 to 7 business days.
Fully canceled orders
If your order has been fully canceled, the temporary hold will expire automatically within the timeframe set by your financial institution. You may also contact us to release the hold with the following information:
- First and Last Name
- Phone number
- Order Number
If you used an Ulta Beauty gift card to pay for any part of your order, the money will be returned to it at the time your order is canceled.
Any hold placed on your Ultamate Rewards Points will automatically be released within 14 days from the order submission.
For your own security, you won't be able to submit an order on ulta.com if the billing address, credit card expiration date and/or security code doesn't match your credit card statement.
ulta.com requires you to enter the correct security code with every purchase. We will not remember your security code.
Applicable sales tax will be applied to your ulta.com order in accordance with state and local laws, and an estimated tax amount will be reflected in the order summary before checkout.
The tax rate is determined by several factors including, and not limited to: the items purchased, the ship-to destination and the ship-from location. Please note that your order's ship-from location can change between the time your order is placed and when it ships, which may result in a sales tax charge that differs from the original estimate.
Gift wrap and delivery charges may also be subject to tax in some states. Please note that tax exemptions are not available online and must be used in store.

Happy returns are our style
Wrong shade? Not right for your hair? We understand things happen, which is why Ulta Beauty is dedicated to making the return process beautifully simple for you. We're all about bringing you a top shopping experience from start to finish.

First, a few details:
- Returns must be accompanied by all original components.
- Lost your receipt? No problem for Ultamate Rewards members! We are able to locate purchases made using your Ultamate Rewards member ID or phone number.
- If you are unable to return the product with its receipt and we are unable to verify the original purchase price of the product, your refund will be in the form of an in-store credit equal to the lowest selling price at which the product was sold by Ulta Beauty during the 90-day period preceding the return. Guests will be asked to provide a valid government issued ID (i.e. driver's license, state or military ID).
- Returns with a gift receipt can be exchanged for different product or an in-store credit.
- In order to offer the best shopping and product-return experience to as many guests as possible, Ulta Beauty reserves the right to limit returns if we have reason to suspect misuse of our generous Returns Policy (such as excessive returns, reseller activity, or fraud).
- Items purchased from other retailers, dealers or resellers and not directly from Ulta Beauty are not eligible for return, refund or exchange, including Ulta Beauty at Target.
- Purchases made at Ulta Beauty or ulta.com may not be returned or exchanged at an Ulta Beauty at Target location.
- Single-use coupons used on your original purchase cannot be returned.
- Gift cards cannot be returned in exchange for cash.

How to return or exchange a product:
For purchases made in Ulta Beauty stores
Simply bring the item(s) you wish to return to any Ulta Beauty store and ask one of our associates to assist you in making a return--we'll be happy to help!
Product(s) returned within 60 days of the original purchase that include the original receipt (or can be verified in our system using your Ultamate Rewards member ID), will be fully refunded via the original form of payment. Otherwise, the refund will be made in the form of an in-store credit.
Products returned to stores that were purchased using an online payment service (i.e., PayPal, PayPal Credit) will be refunded to your preferred credit card or issued as a store merchandise credit.
If you would like to exchange a product for the same item, no payment is required - just bring it in and you're good to go. However, if you exchange for an item at a higher price point, you will need to pay for the difference in price and sales tax. Likewise, if you exchange for a different item at a lower price point, you will receive back the difference in price and sales tax.
For purchases made online at ulta.com or using the Ulta Beauty App
An online or in-app purchase can be returned to us by mail or by bringing it to any one of our Ulta Beauty stores. Please note that shipping charges on your original order will not be refunded, unless the package was incorrectly shipped, or you received defective merchandise.
Returning your online order to one of our stores
To avoid return shipping costs and speed up your refund, you may bring returned merchandise to any Ulta Beauty store.
Simply bring the item(s) you wish to return to the store with its original email order confirmation, packing slip and all original packaging materials. If you are unable to locate your email order confirmation, you can print it by logging in to your ulta.com account, selecting order status, and then selecting the order number shown on the bottom of the packing slip. You can also access it quickly in the app.
If you return the product within 60 days of the original purchase and it's accompanied by its original email order confirmation and packing slip (or can be verified in our system using your Ultamate Rewards member ID or ulta.com account information), you will receive your refund in the form of your original payment. However, if you originally used an online payment service (e.g., PayPal), your refund will be made to your preferred credit or debit card or issued as an in-store credit. In all other cases, the refund will be made in the form of an in-store credit.
Lose something? Online purchases returned to an Ulta Beauty store without the original email order confirmation and packing slip (or cannot otherwise be verified within our systems) are only eligible for exchanges or in-store credit at the lowest selling price at which the product was sold by Ulta Beauty during the 90-day period preceding the return.
Returning your online order by mail
To avoid return shipping costs and speed up your refund, you may return merchandise to any Ulta Beauty store (see Returning your online order to one of our Stores). However, if you choose to mail your return to Ulta Beauty, we ask that you cover the return shipping charges. We are unable to accept CODs for returned merchandise.
If you return a product within 60 days of the process date on the order packing slip, you will receive your refund in the form of your original payment. If payment was made with a store gift card, the refund will be issued in the form of an Ulta Beauty eGift card.
We know you're put together, so we recommend returning the product in the same shipping carton that you received it in. Please use the return mailing label printed on the packing list included in your shipping package, and address the return package to:
ulta.com Returns Center, 1135 Arbor Drive, Romeoville, IL 60446
Return all products to Ulta Beauty by ground-only shipping. Certain items in your order may be considered hazardous materials (HAZMAT). Hazardous materials include: aerosol items, some alcohol-based items, items that contain contents under pressure, and others (e.g., hairspray, nail polish and items containing flammable, volatile or corrosive chemicals). The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) requires ground-only shipment of Hazardous Materials due to air shipment restrictions and regulations.
We also recommend that you use a traceable ground shipping method (e.g. UPS or the U.S. Postal Service insured mail), so you can track your shipment back to us for a truly flawless return. After we have processed your return and issued a refund, we'll let you know via email. You can also look up your return status online by logging into your ulta.com account and clicking on order status. If your refund is being applied back to a bank card or credit card, expect the credit to appear on your account within 7-10 days after you receive the notification email.

- If you redeemed your rewards points to buy an item and then return it, those points will be immediately added back to your Ultamate Rewards balance.
- If you purchased multiple items in a transaction and you only return one item, you will have the proportionate number of points added back to your Ultamate Rewards balance. Those points will be available for use on your next transaction.
- You can always choose to exchange the item you purchased using points for something else in the store and receive the same discount.
- A service fee will be added for any check return unpaid by the bank. In accordance with state law, NSF checks may be submitted to your bank electronically.
