Keep your hair in check no matter where you are with REUP

Made for whenever you need a quick touch up, REUP is a completely portable grooming kit keeping you looking dapper, no matter what the day throws your way: 

  •  Look Your Best — Right before that big presentation or that first date, take a minute to REUP and walk in with confidence you feel.                                                                                                     
  •  On-the-Go Grooming — Small enough to fit in your pocket, REUP is the perfect touch-up solution in between meetings or right after the gym.                                                                                  
  •  High Quality Products — We've developed some great products to keep your hair or beard looking healthy and with the perfect finish to match your look.                                                    

See Where You Can REUP in 30 seconds:

After countless iterations, we figured out what it would take to make the ultimate on-the-go grooming solution. Here some of what you can expect in your REUP Kit:





Choose your favorite type of product in a travel-friendly size and convenient subscription program.

New Cartridges simply pop in and lock into place.
New Cartridges simply pop in and lock into place.

Replace your cartridge as it runs out while you are on your way out the door. 

Our monthly subscription lets you choose the products you want, and shipped to your door. Kickstarter backers will be able to sign up for discounted subscription or add-on additional cartridge refills at a discounted rate.

Cartridges Are Completely Refillable - *At Your Own Risk!*

We made a refillable program as the preferred way to use your REUP Grooming Kit. For the daring and bold, you are completely able to refill your REUP grooming kit on your own. 

It’s messy and cumbersome and we’re sure after a few tries you’ll want to sign up for our awesome product subscription. 



We’re offering 3 select water-based formulas to give you the perfect REUP no matter where you are. We’re working with the FDA-Certified Nohbo Labs, who after their successful Kickstarter campaign, have opened a full-fledged cosmetic product facility. 

You’ll have your choice between:

  •  Pomade — High Sheen and good hold for that suave look that keeps your hair hydrated and under control.
  •  Clay — Matte Finish with a strong hold for a professional look where you need a stronger hold, without the high-shine finish.
  •  Beard Balm — A clean leave-in conditioner that softens your beard and gives you a little hold.

Our cartridges are conveniently sized in TSA-Approved ⅓ ounce cartridges that fit in your carry-on liquids bag.


Stored safely in the case, the REUP comb features a durable build that you can take with you anywhere.


Our pocket comb easily tucks away inside the case and stays protected for when you need it most. No matter the length of your hair or the way you style it, the comb will complement any hair type.


Even though your comb is going to stay protected inside the case, we made it with strong polypropylene so that it’s sturdy with a little bit of flexibility. 



At the size of today's car key fobs, the self-sealing REUP case holds your product with you no matter where you're going.

A smooth finish with almost no edges makes REUP a perfect accent, no matter your style. The sleek design makes it easy to secure in your pocket.

REUP is built to fit in the palm of your hand and at the size of today’s car key fobs. Easily attach REUP to your keyring, backpack or anywhere.


No need to worry about leaks with our self-sealing O Ring that keeps your product stored inside (even when it gets a little warm) and dirt and debris out.

Under the pressure to always look their best, our founders came up with REUP to be an easy solution in between meetings.

Prior to starting REUP, founders Kyle and Levi worked in the finance industry where in between meetings, a product like REUP would've made their days that much easier. 


Kyle is a 30-year-old mortgage broker by day and an aspiring entrepreneur by night. He currently resides in Charlotte, North Carolina with his wonderful girlfriend Pam and their 2 dogs. 

Since a young age, Kyle has shown an appetite for inventing and entrepreneurship. After nearly a decade in the finance industry and countless times scrambling to look good before meetings, Kyle realized that there must be a more efficient way of maintaining your look throughout the day. 

With the help of his good friend and co-founder Levi, they were able to combine those passions and use their specific skills as they attempt to shake up the men’s grooming industry. Two minds, and years of hard work and innovation, REUP was born.

Levi Santos is a Californian native residing in Charlotte, NC with his amazing 4 year old son, Kalen. Growing up, surfing, skating, and snowboarding were huge influences that had a lasting impact to his sense of style. For every true Californian, the bar to maintain a strong sense of style is high. 

Levi took that standard of style with him to North Carolina as his interest in men’s hair and current trends grew. Over the last 14 years, Levi built a career in mortgage banking and financial planning, an industry where maintaining a professional and polished appearance is a must. When starting with REUP, he knew that this product would benefit so many people wanting to maintain their style as they go from the gym to the office or wherever life takes them.



Risks and challenges

If REUP is successfully funded, we will have to make sure everything goes according to plan to meet the promised deadline. We have manufacturing, operations, and logistics set up and ready to go. The funding raised on Kickstarter will be used for production and manufacturing. Although we do not see any direct risks and challenges, there are always indirect or unseen tasks that may present itself during the process of productions. We will be as transparent as possible and make sure to update all of our backers as we move along. We hope to have everything run smoothly and solve your bad hair day ASAP
