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.
