Every ULTA Beauty store has a hair salon in it—and that core-service part of the nationwide beauty-retail chain's business continues to post impressive increases.

In ULTA Beauty's financial results for its third quarter of fiscal 2015 (the 13-week period that ended Oct. 31) announced Dec. 3, salon sales increased 20% to $51.7 million—compared to $43.1 million in its third quarter of fiscal 2014.
