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 to make that confidence with looking your best obtainable by all.

In 2015, we launched our first product line Dame Nail Shades.  Dame Nail Shades are free of the 10 most harsh chemicals found in many commercial nail polishes while still having long-lasting wear.  We use sustainable ingredients that are regionally sourced 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 while still hydrating.

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 time-proven men’s grooming products with a bit of modern innovation.  There’s a reason your grandfather took a while to shave and used our bay rum after.  We strive to create products that are superior quality with artisan craftsmanship but still reasonably priced.

In 2018 we started our initiative to give back to our own by providing job training and education to female veterans who may not take advantage of other veteran resources.  We wanted to build that confidence from the inside and empower veterans to find employment and start new chapters.  Dapper and Dame, Inc. works in a variety of capacities to find the means to support and encourage our veterans, including services such as resume evaluation, resource direction, and career coaching.   Are you seeking employment or have a job interview coming up?  We’d love to help.  Please contact us or stop by one of our free workshops.  

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