HairFin Hair Cutting Tool Update | Shark Tank Season 13

Cutting your own hair is difficult, especially when you try to get a uniform length all the way around. Tony Litwinowicz created the HairFin to help! This measuring tool fits right in your hand, giving you room to work with clippers to get a perfect cut. Did this nifty tool get any bites during its Shark Tank Season 13 pitch? Find out in our HairFin update.

If you’re short on time, here’s a quick overview of what happened to HairFin after Shark Tank!

Shark Tank HairFin Update

Shark Tank HairFin Update

  • Entrepreneur: Tony Litwinowicz
  • Business: A measuring tool for perfect home haircuts
  • Ask: $25,000 for 20% equity
  • Result: $25,000 for 30% equity
  • Shark: Daymond John

Tony Litwinowicz brought his streamlined hair-cutting solution, HairFin, to Shark Tank during Season 13. His mom used to cut his hair when he was a kid, but when he tried to do it himself as an adult he found less than stellar results.

The HairFin’s neat design allows users to cut their own hair evenly without juggling multiple tools. The easy hand-mounting makes it simple and allows customers to save money by giving themselves a salon-quality cut for a reasonable price.

Since its launch in 2020, the product has been available on Amazon exclusively. As a result, it has $41,000 in sales, which isn’t too bad for a small, niche product.

The sharks have different ideas about that, though.

Robert Herjavec drops out almost immediately. It’s simply too small of a market for him to invest in.

Mark Cuban follows next, as it just isn’t the right product for him.

Lori Greiner, likewise, takes herself out of the deal. She also doesn’t think the product is in her wheelhouse.

Kevin O’Leary loves the business but unfortunately, he doesn’t see it as an investable venture. Because of this, he is out as well.

This leaves Daymond John as the last remaining shark. Luckily, he had previously made a deal with a similar company and could easily connect that company to this one.

He’s interested in HairFin and offers Tony $25,000 for 40% of the business. In response, Tony counteroffers at $28,000 for 25%, but unfortunately Daymond refuses.

Daymond then states that his final offer is $25,000 for 30%. After a bit of indecision, Tony gladly accepts the deal.

So, what can Daymond do for the company now that they’ve cut a deal? Keep reading the HairFin update to find out!

Initial research for our HairFin update hasn’t shown any major changes since the episode airdate. The product is still proudly made in the United States and makes a point to utilize local businesses whenever possible.

HairFin is now sold on Amazon, Etsy, and Walmart. They’ve also included new sizes, ranging from 1 inch up to 6 inches instead of the three standard options that were featured on Shark Tank.

There are lots of positive reviews on Amazon, with customers calling the products “ingenious” and “a great tool” and even that it helped create “the perfect pixie cut.” The set of three has more than 50 units sold per month.

According to Anthony’s LinkedIn, he holds 11 patents and worked as an engineer for several years before creating the HairFin, so he may have even more handy inventions up his sleeve down the line.

While there are no new sales numbers to reveal currently, HairFin is still snipping away at its niche market. We’re eager to see how the deal with Daymond works out, and if there will be any big changes for our next HairFin update!
