Stylist Contest: 3 Pins in 3 Mins!

Calling all hairstylists! With the holidays fast approaching, are you ready for updos and occasion styles? We’re launching a stylist-only video contest to see who can come up with the best three-minute updo, using only three bobby pins!


Official Rules: You may use three bobby pins (or fewer) to create an updo. No hair ties, please! Stylers and hairspray are permitted and optional. And don’t forget to record your video in one clip, so we know it only took three minutes to complete!


How to Enter: Upload your video to YouTube and send us the link, or post it directly on our Facebook page before November 30 (at 11:59 p.m.). You must “like” Use Me! Products on Facebook to qualify. We’ll post the top three on Facebook on December 1. Get your friends to vote by “liking” their favorite updo on Use Me’s page—the video with the most likes by Monday, December 3 (at 11:59 p.m.) will win $100 and a Use Me styler of choice!


For an example, check out this 3-min. 3-pin occasion style by Kristin O’Brien of Head Games Salon for Hair & Body in Portland, Maine. You don’t need to add special effects or music, but we encourage you to be creative with your updos and videos! Questions? Leave a comment below or send us a message.

International Inspiration: Iceland

Einn miða til Ísland, takk fyrir.
…which means, “one ticket to Iceland, please!”

Have you heard about our International Inspiration class? Through our advanced education program, the Conservatory of Haute Hair Artistry, we’re offering an annual full-day class, featuring the smells, sounds, tastes, and textures of Iceland!

Use Me‘s Director of Education, Kate Emmerich, travels to different countries each year and uses the experience to introduce a globally infused hair creation. This year’s Icelandic inspiration will feature a Viking-inspired runway updo. It’s going to be seriously haute hair!

The class will take place at Head Games Salon for Hair & Body in Portland, Maine on August 5, 2012. Spaces are limited, and the deadline to sign up is Wednesday, July 25. Get inspired, the Use Me way!
