Shu Uemura Art of Hair Detail Master and Texture Wave Product Review

Two amazing products from Shu Uemura Art of Hair were recently launched, Detail Master Directional Fixing Spray and Texture Wave Dry Finishing Spray, which may just help to solve bad hair days and up our hair game this summer. 

There’s a reason why a lot of women can’t master super-sleek or undone runway hair, and it doesn’t have anything to do with our styling skill or how much we look like a model. It does, however, have everything to do with the products and stylers that we use. The Makeup Examiner has naturally curly hair, which is both a blessing and a curse, but offers me the opportunity to really road test the performance of hair products.

Shu Uemura Detail Master Directional Fixing Spray ($38), debuted this month, provides high-shine hold for a super-sleek low ponytail (a look that was all over the runways for this season). Packaged as a non-aerosol spray, Detail Master allows directional diffusion for precision styling that resists humidity. The Makeup Examiner found this spray to offer amazing hold and shine when I opted go to for straighter styles.

Detail Master Directional Fixing Spray primary inspiration: Mr. Shu Uemura, who had a mastery of technique so profound that his artistry often appeared effortless. Its secondary inspiration: wooden pavilion architecture - an art form renowned for its purity of line, precision, and flexible response to nature. “It’s a lie that tools do not matter if you have a technique.” ~Mr. Shu Uemura

Detail Master Directional Fixing Spray Benefits:

  • Sleek shine with brushable hold
  • Long-lasting control and humidity resistance
  • Zone-focused control of details such as partings, curls, wisps
  • Non-aerosol that allows workability but has fast drying time
  • Versatile enough to be incorporated into any look that calls for a sleek or smooth effect: ponytails, knots, precision parts, and side-swept looks
  • High shine look adaptable to men’s styling

Regarding the oh-so-sexy undone look, few effects are harder to create, unless you can call Adir Abergel (Master of the Undone Look) to come over and give you an Adir A-Do. As many will attest to, achieving that sexy, tousled look can take some serious work. More often then not, TME opts not to fight the humid Northeastern summer weather and goes for beachy waves … okay … admittedly there are days (daze) when I’m simply too lazy to deal. I found Texture Wave enhanced my naturally curly hair and offered control when I opted to decrease the mega-curl and go for my all-time favorite summer look … beachy waves.

Shu Uemura Texture Wave Dry Finishing Spray ($38) with a mono-diffusion spray that allows targeted application at roots or ends, Texture Wave uses micronized mineral powders to build a flexible, non-sticky texture that actually enhances hair health and softness. Texture Wave Dry Finishing Spray inspiration: the movements of ocean waves, which remain continually in flux, yet never lose their power or beauty. “The wave is also a symbol of the delicately changing beauty of a woman.” ~Mr. Shu Uemura

Texture Wave Dry Finishing Spray Benefits:

  • Buildable texture without a hint of stickiness or visible residue
  • Long-lasting, flexible hold
  • Shape memory that retains volume for a full 24 hours
  • Versatile enough to be incorporated in almost any “undone” look from braids to up-dos to ponytails
  • Soft shine, natural finish adaptable to men’s styling

While TME liked both products, Texture Wave is a Seasonal Beauty must-have! Shu Uemura Detail Master and Texture Wave are available for purchase online at Shu Uemura and at Shu Uemura Art of Hair Consultant Salonslocations. Check out Shu Uemura on Facebook and Twitter!
