Takara Belmont USA Launches YUME HEADBATH

SOMERSET, NJ –TAKARA BELMONT USA, the pioneering force behind the widely acclaimed YUME Head Spa, is delighted to announce the official launch of the YUME Headbath in the United States. After a year of meticulous testing and refinement, following its successful debut in Japan, the YUME Headbath is set to redefine the realm of scalp treatments and usher in a new era of elevated selfcare practices nationwide.

“We are thrilled to witness the viral sensation that the YUME Headbath has created since its introduction in Japan. The overwhelming desire for this transformative product speaks volumes about its impact on self-care rituals and its ability to elevate salon offerings,” says Kendrick Wong, Marketing Manager at Takara Belmont USA, Inc.

This eagerly awaited Yume Head Spa accessory is enriched with features designed to enhance the YUME Head Spa experience, offering clients a sensory journey that goes beyond conventional salon services.

Key features include:

Cleansing, Purifying, and Healing: Delivers a brief yet highly efficient scalp-cleansing experience, removing accumulated dirt and product build-up, as well as removing oxidized sebum while preserving the essential moisture. This process establishes the perfect foundation for fostering healthy hair growth.

Stress Relief: Beyond its physical benefits, the YUME Headbath offers a therapeutic escape, alleviating stress and fostering a transformative shift in clients’ dispositions. The enveloping warmth of the water, coupled with the gentle murmur of a stream, creates a sensory journey that transcends daily stresses. This immersive experience draws clients into a profound state of tranquil serenity.

Effortless Integration for Maximum Impact: Its user-friendly design allows for effortless attachment and detachment while the client is in the treatment position. No additional techniques or training are required, ensuring highly effective results from the very first treatment.

Compatibility: Designed for ease, the YUME Headbath attachment seamlessly integrates with select full lie-flat shampoo units from the YUME Series, including Yume, Yume Espoir, Yume Noble and Yume Suite.

Distinguishing itself from market replicas, the YUME Headbath utilizes fresh water to ensure a superior and hygienic experience. In contrast, imitations in the market often resort to recycled water from the basin, compromising the overall quality of the experience. This exceptional product stands as a testament to Takara Belmont’s steadfast commitment to advancing design, functionality, and technology.

“It is more than a product; it’s a sensation, a sought-after experience that has become a must-have for salons looking to redefine excellence in scalp treatments and provide clients with an indulgent escape into tranquility,” says Karen Gordon, YUME Head Spa Education Lead.

Rooted in a legacy of innovation and excellence, Takara Belmont continually shapes and surpasses industry standards, providing tools that not only meet but exceed the dynamic needs of the ever-evolving beauty industry.

YUME Espoir

SOMERSET, NJ – The meaning behind Takara Belmont’s “YUME” chair loosely translates to “dream,” the YUME Espoir shows us how it earned this title. It’s a dream for customers, stylists, and salon owners everywhere. A truly unparalleled product, the YUME is more than a chair – it’s a spa experience.

Customers can recline fully into luxury, as they lay down with a custom neck rest and contouring pillow to enjoy their treatment. Just as the value of your salon rises with the push of a button, so does the YUME Espoir, raising and lowering with just one-touch technology on its sleek, modern design. The shampoo bowl is positioned perfectly for a seated shampoo style, which creates ease for lengthy treatments and opens up service menus to a whole new set of possibilities.

The Espoir yields optimal comfort for the technician as well, allowing them to sit while performing an array of spa treatments. Paired with an ergonomic, tiltable YUME stool that is designed to relieve stress on the technician’s spine and other high-pressure areas, your technicians will feel more comfortable while performing services. Takara Belmont’s persistent commitment to quality and innovation ensures that this comfort will last—adding a high value investment for business owners.

“Perhaps the most valuable part of the YUME Espoir is the capacity for a YUME Head Spa service, where your customers actually leave feeling healthy and rejuvenated,” said Steve Hughes, National Sales Manager of Takara Belmont, “and with the full benefits of a YUME Head Spa menu, such as extensive hair and scalp treatments, you can give customers a uniquely satisfying spa treatment experience that focuses on the health of your clients.”

Another bragging right of the YUME system is the Spa Mist II, which Takara Belmont’s Beauty Product Designer, Taka Mizunuma, says is the “key ingredient in providing clients with amazing results.”

That’s because the mist heats up to just 40-50 degrees, resulting in minimal hair damage. It also opens the cuticle of the hair, allowing for treatments like conditioning, hair color, and more, to be absorbed more effectively. Customers leave with their hair not just looking healthier, but actually being healthier than when they walked in.

“Each system transforms the way hair and scalp treatments are performed,” said Hughes. “With a focus on health and beauty, the system uses our revolutionary technology to help stylists and technicians improve the shine, luster and vibrancy for their clients.”

The spa shampoo unit model #SH-YMES is approximately 211.65 lbs., and is equipped with a wide shampoo capacity. With overall dimensions of approximately 25.59’’W x 75.71’’D x 36.61’’ H and a seat height of approximately 18.90”, this unit lifts upwards of 8” to elevate your client to an optimal seated shampoo position. Available in white, dark brown, camel and black upholstery selections, the YUME Espoir will be displayed at various trade shows throughout the year.
