The 6 National Semi-Finalists in the Shu Uemura Gallery of Style competition have been selected and we were yesterday in NYC to get the backstage photos of the creative artists at work! Take a look at the gallery below…
The 6 Semi-Finalists include:
Nicole Tomasch – Pheonix Salon Day and Spa
Jasmine Galazka – Warren Tricomi
Jennifer Gillis – H2O Salon Northshore
Karly Cagliani – Matthew Morris Salon and Skincare
Summer Verrett – Envy Salon and Spa
Yuki Yasui – DopDop Salon
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.
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. 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… check back with us for more updates on the talented Semi-Finalists!
