Product Description

My name is Joshua Esnard, and I am a Black inventor of haircut and grooming tools. I was born in the tiny but beautiful Caribbean country named Saint Lucia. My first patent idea came along when I was just 13 years old. After many attempts to cut my own hair and as an untrained teenager, I was highly unsuccessful! Given this problem, I tapped into my creative side and invented a lining stencil guide which later became The Cut Buddy Hair and Beard Shaping Tool.

The Cut Buddy went viral in 2016 and is currently in over a million homes. It has been featured in Black Enterprise, HGTV, Forbes, GQ, NPR: How I Built This, HGTV Self Made, we even got to pitch our idea on Shark Tank in Season 9.

For too long the haircut industry has needed innovation around the multicultural consumer! We all have different hair and different needs!

As a company, The Cut Buddy aims to address the wider issue of creating affordable products and kits that make cutting and styling your hair or a family members hair easy. I understand your struggle. I have had braids, waves, afro, ingrown hairs, facial hair and bald hair styles! I have tested and used almost every product out there for hair and skin. That is why my heart is close to your experience and to your particular struggle. I was you at one point in my life.

Our products will include shaping guides, clippers, trimmers, shavers, and other accessories to make a home haircut easy! We also look to release body butters, oils, and washes in the near future.

We are very much still that struggling teenage inventor at heart, but we are quickly growing into a research company for the multicultural haircut industry.

The Cut Buddy Shaping Tool - The first patented shaping tool

the cut buddy shaving with clippers beard

Joshua Esnard is the original inventor and patent holder of the “Hair Grooming Guide.” Since early 2016, this industry has really exploded! I was actually only 13 years old when I originally invented The Cut Buddy by accident since I was sick of my father’s haircuts and couldn’t afford to go to the barbershop. Fifteen years later I patented my idea and here we are!

Why is The Cut Buddy the great? It is PATENTED with MULTIPLE expertly-designed and tested curves and lines to give you maximum possibilities to achieve the best cut possible. It also minimizes and eliminates beard and hair shaping mistakes!

I worked with an engineer for NASA and the Air Force to provide you with three specially-designed and patented curves that MORE THAN 1 MILLION CUSTOMERS have LOVED.

I invented this tool because I was YOU! When I was 13 years old, I didn’t have the money or the time to get to my barber or salon as often as I would like. I had to cut my own hair if I wanted to look as great as my friends who had the money and time for the barber!

You can follow my story the story of The Cut Buddy in GQ, Forbes, Black Enterprise, NPR's How I Made This podcast, Heavy and on NBC’s Today Show and on ABC’s Shark Tank!

Troubleshooting

If you have trouble holding the product while trimming or shaving, try out our Speed Tracer Barber Pencils to trace the lines before cutting your hair. Many of our customers find this to be easier since it frees up their hands and they can simply cut along the lines they have drawn rather than having to hold the product steady against their face.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius product!
By Laurie Higgins on April 1, 2019
This thing is freaking awesome!!! So I am NOT a barber, but I have over the years almost perfected a fade on my husband. The only thing I couldn’t do perfectly was point his sideburns, he has a very specific way that he likes it and when I tried it just fell short. I saw this product on Shark Tank again (as an update) and decided to give it a whirl for only $8 what do I have to lose right? Well I used it for the first time and he got the best haircut to date. The sideburns look great, but also I used all the angles all over his head and it made it so seamless and easy to cut all along every edge. Pics are after first use, so I feel I will get better with using it with time (I also accidentally cut his top with a 3, not a 2 so his cut will look even better next time) but I highly suggest this to anyone who cuts men’s hair be it in the home or at the barbers. I should also mention that HE is super pleased with how it looks. I can’t speak for using it on a beard yet but we are both so pleased with this product, seriously, buy it! I

4.0 out of 5 stars The Cut Buddy Will Save You Money But Be Patient...
By Jason on August 29, 2019
I liked the cut buddy because it has helped me save money by not having to go to the barber. With the right outliner you can get great results. I keep my hair at a 1 and I was still able to get a nice line up, or at least good enough for me.

The cut buddy will save you money in the long run but you have to be patient to get over the learning curve. Lol

What I struggled with was holding the cut buddy as it was a little hard to bend. Also, it was difficult to get behind my ears and back of head. So I ended up cutting those spots by free-hand.

With more practise, I hope to get better at it and provide an update.

1.0 out of 5 stars Came beat up
By Jamie Marion on January 14, 2019
Couple things looking at other people's pics, mine just came in a plastic bag no pencil. And it looks like it's already bent up and was hit against stuff on an edge which isn't very comfortable to have on my face..

This was purchased to use with my shaving kit, I’ve started home grooming and I needed something to aid with shaping my beard and hair like in between my fortnightly barber trips. Very easy to use as there are clear markings, the plastic is also curved to guide around where to cut.
