The Longhairs

the longhairsLindsay Barto and Chris Healy pitch The Longhairs, their online community for men with long hair, in Shark Tank episode 908. Started in 2014 by the two business partners who also run a digital marketing agency, they set out to create an online space to “advocate, educate, and celebrate men with ‘epic flows’ (and also to sell hair ties).” The two long-haired men were sick of shopping in the women’s hair care section of stores, so they curated and created products for men.

The two men are kind of evangelists for men with long hair. On their website, they go by the nicknames El Rubio (the blonde) and El Moreno (the brunette). They stress to their followers that they want to advocate, educate and celebrate men with long hair. As they also say, long hair is “bad ass.”

Their products are hair serum – to condition and moisturize long hair; hair ties with manly designs like camouflage, shotgun shells, surfboards, martini glasses, lightning bolts (not your little sister’s hair ties); and head wraps – to “contain the mane.” They also sell hats and tee shirts. So far, they have a decent sized, albeit niche, following of around 25,000 subscribers. They likely want a Shark to help them gain access to broader markets.

Will a Shark want to be a “mane” investor in this business?
