Woodbury’s Tamarack Village is home to the site of an interesting juxtaposition.
First, we have a behemoth of a sporting goods store—you’ve probably visited it at least seasonally, when the kids need a new (insert seasonal sporting item here). But while nearly dwarfs the dainty little shop just next door, this lightbulb-studded beauty store is the place to transform you from soccer mom to vamp-about-town.
With a large selection of the top names in beauty and a competitively-priced salon to boot, is a bright and airy escape from the sporting world.
You can peruse the season's hottest color palette (they carry everything from Too Faced to too-cheap) or just spritz a perfume from their literal wall of fragrance for a quick refresher, but the real escape is located at the back of the store—head due west past Urban Decay and take a left at the Redken. ULTA’s salon offers a full range of services including coloring, waxing and skin treatments. When you’re short on time or need a break, experience the Go & Glow, a 30 minute facial which promises to smooth, firm and brighten your skin.
Though appointments aren’t a bad idea, they do accommodate walk-ups. So next time the kids are trying on every pair of hockey skates in the store, let the husband take over while you slip out for a quick pick-me-up!
