I had the pleasure of attending the launch of Shu Uemura haircare at Shelby Herrick salon in Fairway last week. Shelby's salon is one of only 2 percent of salons in the country that will be carrying this luxury hair care line.
Shu Uemura is a Japanese company, best known for their cosmetics and skincare. Their newest endeavor, The Art of Hair is all about purity and well-being with an emphasis on rare and precious ingredients from the Japanese culture. These ingredients give the products ultimate purity and high performance results and overall just plain gorgeous hair.
It was a fun evening with local media and bloggers...and a little hair zhushing of course!
My partner in crime, Sarah from Apparentlyobsessed....sporting her pretty, new Laura Mercier red lipstick. love it!
I finally got to meet Kim Wallace from Kimberlyloc.com...she has a fabulous natural beauty blog. And she could not be any sweeter!
Jamie from White Table Style got some gorgeous, flowing locks
Owner, Shelby works his magic with Shu Uemura's coolest product, The Volume Maker. It is an invisible texturizing powder that comes in an automatic click brush. PURE genius. Want to skip a hair wash but need to get rid of the oil and give your roots a boost? This is your product.
He also added a product called cotton uzu to my ends to give my hair some added texture. In the end, I left with what I would call "sexy hair"...like you just rolled around in the hay, if you know what I mean...
Overall, I think the product is amazing. Not to mention, it smells delicious! My husband, son and I all can use the Cotton Uzu which is a defining, flexible cream.
I also like the Silk Bloom conditioner. This product is for damaged hair and let me tell you, it is powerful. This puts Moroccan Oil to shame. It's incredibly moisturizing and literally leaves your hair feeling like silk.
Thanks to Shelby and their staff for inviting us into their salon and for teaching us all about the Art of Hair!
