Shu Uemura meets Maison Kitsuné

This holiday season, two of Shu Uemura Art of Hair bestselling products have been given a striking new look thanks to a limited edition collaboration with Maison Kitsune, the French/Japanese fashion duo. The unique, bespoke designs have been crafted by the creative duo, Maison Kitsune, to reflect both brands synergies of ‘East meets West’ using a series of cute motifs depicting cultural items from both worlds…think sweet croissants and Japanese kimonos. This collision of East and West brings us a daring vision of colours, prints and designs for one of the chicest holiday collection this year for your hair and for your bathroom cabinet!

The two iconic products from Shu Uemura Art of Hair that have been given this fun makeover are the Cleansing Oil Shampoo and the much-loved Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective Oil which are both such treats for your hair. The Cleansing Oil Shampoo is specifically developed for normal hair types and transforms from an oil to a rich foam which effortlessly eliminates dirt and impurities whilst gently cleansing the scalp. For centuries onset hot mineral water baths have been the ultimate location for relaxation and serenity in Japan which has been a key inspiration in this product. The purifying action of the ‘oil removes oil’ philosophy gently cleansing and rebalances whilst the onset inspired ferment provides ultimate lightness and radiance to the hair.

The Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective Oil is a great hair oil to deeply nourish and replenish moisture from root to tip. It is specifically formulated to treat the needs of dry hair that has lost moisture and sleekness through colour treatment, heat styling or exposure to the sun. Concentrated camellia essence restores life, lustre and suppleness for instantly shinier, healthier looking hair whilst the uplifting notes of sparkling grapefruit and sensuous musk give you some seriously sweet-smelling tresses!
