WHO IS IT?
Chris Healy, co-founder of The Longhairs from San Diego, California, USA.
WHAT IS THEIR SIDE HUSTLE?
Chris and his co-founder, Lindsay Barto, got the idea to create hair ties specifically for guys while driving in the car one day. They brought this idea to life and started selling hair ties, along with other products, as a side hustle.
WHY SHOULD I LISTEN?
The guys were able to get their side hustle on shark tank after a few years of consistently creating content and growing their community of long hair men. They had to sacrifice a lot on their journey, including moving into a tight cramped apartment so they could save more and invest in their business. After months of slow and steady revenue growth, they applied and were featured on Shark Tank. Month’s of waiting led to the final round and them pitching in front of the Sharks where they were able to secure $100,000 in funding from billionaire investor, Mark Cuban. Since securing the investment, Chris and Lindsay have been creating content, marketing, and expanding their product line far beyond just hair ties for guys.
WHERE CAN I LEARN MORE ABOUT THEM?
You can find Chris and The Longhairs over TheLonghairs.us and you can find them on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.
