SHU UEMURA Art of Hair

Birchbox Breakdown

Steal a page from Hollywood stylist Chris McMillan who uses this silky, floral-scented paste to deliver gorgeous, beachy layers to his A-lister clientele. Equally apt for short crops and long manes, this smart putty lets you twist, curl and scrunch strands however you please, adding definition, defeating frizz, and foils fly-aways—all without making hair greasy or sticky.

How it Works

Beeswax provides hold and definition, while mineral oils condition and protect against heat, humidity and damaging UV rays.

How to Use

Warm a dime-size amount of putty by rubbing between your palms. Massage evenly into dry or damp hair, twisting individual strands to add texture.

Love it, but a tad pricey
Purchased

It does not weigh your hair down and leaves you with that matte look. Effortless. great stuff. Just wish it was a few bucks cheaper for the size of the container.

Good product, good hold.
Purchased

I didn't see anything special with this hair product. I was looking to add to the multiple products that I use, but this is too hard to get and expensive compared to what I am using.

Good shaper

Great staying power. Soothes out my hair if I want it smooth or gives it extra texture, it a very versatile product. The scent is nice too.

Great matte hold without a "goopy" feel, even better smell

This stuff is great! It's got an excellent hold, great matte finish, and smells amazing to boot. Definitely recommend this stuff - worth the price tag!
