Our story…

Dapper & Dame, Inc was founded in 2014 by a group of ambitious individuals looking to make a change in the personal care and grooming industry.  Frustrated by unsafe chemicals and ridiculous markups, we wanted to create safer products that led the way in quality and affordability.

Our first product line, Dame Nail Shades, is free of the 10 most harsh chemicals found in many commercial nail polishes. We source all the materials regionally and are 100% cruelty-free. Currently, we make over 30  beautiful colors, with more colors being added seasonally.

Dame Lip Shades debuted in 2016. Our first lip product, Dame Lip Sheers, proved very popular for its hint of color and was soon followed up by Dame Lip Shades, a richly pigmented lip color.  In 2018, we joined the two lines into the new, Dame Lip Shades. A new take on an all natural lipstick. Rich and bold colors with long-lasting wear.

Also in 2016, we launched Gentleman Jim, a men’s grooming line of shaving supplies, beard care and hair products named after one of our founders. Gentleman Jim products focus on traditional styles with modern innovation. We strive to create products that are superior quality with artisan craftsmanship and still reasonably priced.

In 2018 we launched our initiative to give back to our community by providing job training and education to female veterans who may not take advantage of other veteran resources.  Dapper and Dame, Inc. works in a variety of capacities to find the means to support and encourage our women veterans, including services such as resume evaluation, resource direction, and life coaching.  If you need assistance, please contact us.  We’d love to help.   

We thank you for your support as we grow!  We are very active on social media and look forward to connecting with you.

Customer feedback is the lifeblood of our business. Tell us what’s on your mind, good or bad.

We look forward to hearing from you!
