Shu Uemura Art Of Hair

In Salon Treatment At Artemiou Hair Designs in Limassol

Christos Artemiou has been my hairdresser now for the last 18 months.  I love his talent, his passion for hair and how humble he is.  When Christos told me that he has now brought the SHU UEMURA ART OF HAIR range and the treatments to the salon, I got very excited.

Shu Uemura was a Japanese makeup artist and founder of the cosmetics line which bears his name.  He was a creative force in the cosmetic world and developed products that respect skin health and enhance natural beauty.  His philosophy was love the skin that you have, protect it and amplify it.  Before he died in 2007, he created the Art of Hair.  Hair is integral to a woman’s beauty.  The Shu Uemura Art of Hair brings together the artistic touch, the intelligence of nature and natural ingredients and the integrity of science and delivers products and in-salon experiences which create a new level of hair and mind balance and health.
