Joshua Esnard hopes to cut the Sharks in on Cut Buddy, his template that lets you get clean lines while cutting your own hair or beard, in episode 907. Esnard was always an inventive kid and at age 13, he started cutting his own hair. He didn't like the job his dad was doing. He grabbed some old plastic folders and made a template. When he used it, he looked better than his friends who went to the barber.
At age 28, Joshua became “follically challenged” and didn't need to cut his hair as much. Up to that point, he was still using his home-made template. In 2016, he started the business and began making the Cut Buddy available for sale on Amazon. When he paid a famous Youtuber to review the product, the video went viral and the Cut Buddy sold over 4000 units in one day. In his first year in business, Esnard sold over 50,000 units!
Each Cut Buddy costs $14.95, plus shipping. They work with all hair clippers, hair fiber, detailers, outliners, disposable razors and straight razors. Each product also comes with a barber pencil to trace your hair line/design before you cut. With such rapid growth, Esnard likely needs a Shark's help with manufacturing and distribution.
Will a Shark think this business is a cut above the rest?

Joshua will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. He'll need to convince Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Kevin O'Leary, Lori Grenier, and Robert Herjavec that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but he’ll need to show them HE is capable of running the company to “Shark standards."
