Umi has been an underground favorite hair grooming product line for a while. Now you can find it at Blackbird and on

What we like is that UMI products hold up under pressure, can be mixed and layered to derive an endless amount of effects, and since they were created by their respective industry's top stylists and chemists, the quality of the products are superb. Don't let the simple packaging fool you. This is great goo.

You will also find that Umi products are specifically formulated to achieve the highest level of performance without the use of unnecessary detergents or colorants. All products were tested only on models. AND... it's made in the USA! AND AND AND... it smells really good!

Are you sold on it yet? Well we are.
