While a good haircut can boost your confidence, a bad haircut has precisely the opposite effect. How often have you come back from a hair salon feeling dissatisfied with your haircut or thinking you could do a better job of chopping your locks? If the answer is several times, then HairFin might just be the answer to all your bad haircut woes.

HairFin's founder Tony Litwinowicz will be pitching his measuring tool for haircuts on the upcoming episode 20 of 'Shark Tank' Season 13 before Mark Cuban, Kevin O'Leary, Lori Greiner, Daymond John, and Robert Herjavec. While we will have to wait and watch to see if the Sharks are interested in cutting a deal with Tony, in the meanwhile, you can read all about Hairfin here.

What is HairFin?

HairFin is a fin-shaped measuring guide that helps you cut just the right amount of hair and achieve the look that you want. The brand's website states, "The HairFin haircut tools are perfect for men, women, and children’s haircuts. Whether you want a cool surfer or pixie cut, or even a toddler’s haircut, you can do them all with the HairFin!" Using a HairFin is pretty simple as well. Just section your hair and hold the section that you'd like to cut between your fingers. Then place the HairFin guide into position with rounded part of fin toward you and the bottom platform under your palm. Trim the hair that comes above your hand.

"Frustrated with bad haircuts, we came up with the HairFin hair cutting tools to cut our own hair at home. The guides worked so well for our family that we partnered with a local manufacturer to bring them to you. The HairFin haircut guides let you cut longer hair than what clipper combs allow. Great for trendy men, women, and children’s haircuts. The guides let you hold hair in place for trimming, while measuring it at the same time. The curved design lets you grasp hair at the base and pull it straight while rocking the hair lenght guide into place. Works for trimming curly and fine hair too. Experienced home hair cutters appreciate the intuitive design that takes the guesswork out of judging hair length," states the brand.

Who is the founder?

Tony Litwinowicz is the founder of HairFin. As an engineer, Tony is no stranger to building and developing things. He grew up cutting his own hair, when he decided to grow out his hair and sport a longer hairstyle, he suddenly began finding it difficult to give himself haircuts without messing up the lengths or ending with uneven ends. Since clippers are only about an inch, they weren't of much help wither. So, he put his engineering brain and skills to use and created HairFin, a measuring guide that helps you achieve precision cuts. HairFin is manufactured in Derby, Connecticut.


What is the cost and where to buy HairFin from?

HairFin is available for purchase in either a set of three or five. A set of three HairFins retails for $14.95, while a set of five retails for $24.95. These measuring guides can be purchased either from Amazon or Etsy. The HairFin measuring guide has 3.6-star rating on Amazon. A customer wrote, "Great product, makes haircuts easy!!! We bought a set to give our four year old son a better haircut. Previously we used electric clippers but were limited to short hair lengths. Now he is much happier with his haircut and so are we! The results are excellent!!!! Now I’m growing my hair out longer. I can’t wait to use this product to try new hair styles for myself. Highly recommend this product if you are looking for an easy way to achieve great results!"


Where is HairFin now?

The brand recently launched 6' measuring guide. "We've just released the all new HairFin kit that now includes 5 inch and 6 inch HairFins!!," announced the brand on its Instagram page.


Who will steal the deal?

Considering Daymond John already has a hair cut tool in his portfolio, he might be interested in HairFin. Although the brand's sales numbers and profit margins will ultimately be the major deciding factor for the sharks on whether to invest in the business or not. So, we will just have to wait and watch to see if the Sharks even make a deal.

‘Shark Tank’ Season 13 Episode 20 airs on ABC on April 15, 2022, at 8 pm ET. Catch the latest episode featuring products like Cat Amazing, Browndages, HairFin, and Lil Advents.
