Shu Uemura Leaving US Market

A bit of sad news for my Shu Uemura fans out there. Shu is leaving us. They will be pulling out of the US market completely over the next few months.

The Shu Uemura Art of Hair will still continue to be available in the US at select salons, but stores and counters will close.

After that time, the only place we will be able to get Shu is from their website, which will remain operational.

This bums me out, as I always loved going to the Shu Uemura store in South Coast Plaza, where the staff is oh-so-helpful. This decision comes down from parent company L’Oreal after sales have been poor for Shu Uemura in the U.S. overall. They will continue the brand outside the U.S., doing about 80% of their business in Asia.

Are you going to miss Shu Uemura?
