Shark Mark Cuban gave a standing ovation for Mike’s presentation, while Kevin O’Leary was brought to a tear while on the court.

As the company had a deeper meaning for Mike and his brother, he decided to keep 5% of the business.

Mike mentioned that Legacy Shave has products for men and women. It also offers travel-sized products, and aside from shaving cream, the company also sells room fresheners, sunscreen spray, and more.

The founder went to the tank to ask for financial and marketing assistance. Mike and his family invested around $4,00,000 but they are not making any profits yet. Their sales last year were $96,000.

After the pitch, the Sharks, including Barbara Corcoran, waved. Mark CubanKevin O’Leary, Laurie Greener, and Robert Herjavec were ready to pass their verdict.

Barbara indicated that Mike was not a good communicator and that he should not have told his investors that he was out of money. For these reasons, she was out. Mark, too, did not offer a deal, citing the same reason.

Kevin mentioned that bringing money into the barbershop business was a challenge as there were many competitors. He and Kevin also back off, leaving the ball in Lowry’s court.
