uka =羽化 in Japanese means "when a pupa comes out of the cocoon and becomes a butterfly". As a total beauty salon brand, the aim is to play the role in helping men and women become beautiful and spread beauty through the world like butterflies pollinate flying from one flower to another. uka thinks that “true beauty” is not only about appearance but also a smile coming from satisfactions. You can become beautiful by changing your hairstyle, nail colors, or care the nails, but in order to feel beautiful, it must come with feelings of satisfactions. Their role is to make sure you enjoy different expressions of beauty in the process. That way, confidence and happiness naturally appear on your face.
