The 6 National semi-finalists in the Shu Uemura Gallery of Style competition have been selected! This is where consumers and fellow peers are encouraged to vote for their favorite hairdresser and style!
The global competition is exclusively for those working at Shu Uemura salons to win a professional photo shoot and immersion in Tokyo, the brand’s city of origin and continued source of inspiration.
Each stylist was challenged to interpret the contest theme, “Tokyo Vibe,” by bringing to life Tokyo’s harmonious contradiction of sense of ritual and extreme attention to detail, and then submitting photos of their hair creation.
In the Gallery of Style competition 50% of the vote was based on our judges and the other 50% was based on public consumers and stylists, from whom there were 7,500 votes. ESTETICA’s Sergi Bancells was one of the judges for the final event and we would love to see what you think about these looks that were selected as the best six!
Three International Finalists will be announced on July 8, 2016 and the three Global Winners will be announced in September 2016. You can see the Semi-finalists in our gallery below and vote for them yourself at www.shuuemuraartofhair-usa.com/gallery-of-style
You can also enter for a chance to win the top 10 Shu Uemura Art of Hair styling products valued at $400! Shu Uemura’s styling products, with the semi-finalists’ looks, will add to the campaign aiming to inspire women to be more creative and adventurous with their daily styling routine.
