Three Custom visits Dickey at Hair Rules

Last Friday, I finally gave in and submitted to a haircut. With my crazy curly hair, I've had more unhappy haircutting experiences than I care to remember, so a few years ago I just gave up and started trimming it myself. I know it sounds scary, but it actually wasn't so bad for a while (curls hide a lot of errors!). Unfortunately, lately my hair started looking just plain crazy, so when a friend recommended Dickey at Hair Rules I gave him a call. Not only did I get a great cut, but Dickey really taught me about my hair. He is a master! He knows I want long hair eventually, but my poor hair needed a total overhaul so we went short and sassy for the summer and agreed that we would grow it out "together", in a healthy way! Better yet, Dickey's hair products, Hair Rules are AMAZING. My fave - Curly Whip. We'll be doing a sampling program with Hair Rules soon with online orders, so keep your eyes peeled!

Three Custom goes to airbrush school at Temptu

Today, we had the pleasure of studying airbrush makeup at Temptu, which is the pro makeup artist's brand of choice for temporary tatoos and airbrush makeup since the 80's. Not only do we have a new skill under our belts, but we had great fun learning! Stay tuned for some Three Custom/Temptu collaborations in the near future!
