Father and son team Steve and Josh King hope to get a deal for Manscaped, their products for male grooming “below the belt,” in Shark Tank episode 1004. Manscaping is literally when a guy trims his pubic hair or styles it fashionably. Manscaped is the only branded line of products specifically geared for this purpose. Their website claims 80% of women think all men should do a little manscaping.
Their products aren't just for below the belt – they can be used anywhere male hair gets a bit unruly. The main product is The Lawnmower 2.0 (which replaced The Lawnmower). It's a shaving/sculpting tool that's “an electric trimmer worthy of getting up close and personal with your family jewels.” Unlike a typical electric trimmer for beards, it has “SkinSafe technology that protects you from accidental nicks.” It works on beards, too.
Manscaped also sells The Plow, a single blade razor that is effective on coarse, curly hair. They also sell nail grooming items, colognes, hair conditioners, even deodorant for the “nether regions.” Their top seller is The Perfect Package which includes a Lawnmower, a Plow, a bottle of conditioner, a bottle of deodorant and three disposable shaving mats.
The Kings started the company in 2017 with a $400K investment from an angel investor. Since then they've received quite a bit of press from men's magazines like GQ and Playboy. They hope a new awareness of good grooming everywhere on the male body will entice a Shark to become their next “angel.” Will a Shark want to get into the Manscaping business?

Manscaped Shark Tank Recap
Steve and Josh will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. They'll need to convince Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec and Guest Shark Charles Barkley that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards." A full pitch re-cap on Manscaped will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
