Salon Review: Zoku Salon


About a week ago I had the pleasure of attending an exclusive Shu Uemura Art of Hair Event held at Zoku Salon.

The Rundown:
Zoku Salon
17 Union Place
Summit, NJ 07901
(908) 273-9658

First Impressions:

Luckily, I was able to get a great parking space right outside the salon. I can tell by the area that a good parking spot is hard to come by so I considered myself extremely lucky. The down side? It was metered parking. The salon is a bit on the smaller side, but it does not at all feel cramped. Instead, the flow of the salon seems as if a feng shui decorator had some input here and there. The overall atmosphere was very relaxing. The goal of Zoku Salon is to bridge the gap between the east and west and it's done amazingly well. The creators of the salon, Zoe and Christine are known for their unparallel expertise in hair design and coloring services. Salon Zoku has just made getting your hair done in Jersey trendy.

The Services:
I received a brand new service exclusively for Shu Uemura, Shu Uemura Art of Hair Ceremony. I got the Complete Ceremony ($75 for 30 minutes) that combines the Purifying and Hair Care Ceremonies plus an extended scalp massage to create the ultimate Ceremony experience. The Ceremony begins with Obhibori (a warm towel) and a cup of Japanse green tea. First, the Clarifying Ceremony cleanses and deeply purifies the hair while moisturizing and revitalizing the scalp. Then the made to measure customized Haircare Ceremony combines a mositurizing Depsea Base and Absolu oil. The stylist used the Moisture Velvet Absolu Oil to nourish my hair with Camellia oil and essential lips and minerals to rebalance moisture levels. Did you know Camellia oil was originally used by geishas to smooth and soften the hair?




Johanna & Joi


Johanna was my stylist and she used the complete Shu Uemura hair care line on my hair. She blowdried my hair straight and then added a few curls to the ends with a curling iron. I was able to perserve my 'do for about a week, usign Shu Uemura Silk Oil to refresh it throughout the week (expect a complete review).
