Mai Lieu, founder of the Crea Clip

 

1) What is the Crea Clip?
A haircutting guide that allows you to cut your hair at home and get professional results, great for cutting kids hair, bangs and layers!


2)How did you come up with the idea for it?
I have been in the beauty industry for over 20 years and I worked all over the world and everywhere I traveled I always had to fix home haircuts. I thought since people are doing it anyways why not invent a product for them to do a better job at home!
3) How did your experience on Shark Tank help your business? The number one things sales increase. In just one day I had over 5000% increase! And it’s been 18 days now and sales are still up. They call it the Shark Tank Effect, where sales could last 30-60 days. It’s open doors for me, I had interest in Walmart and some other distributors!

4)What inspired you to go into business? At a young age I got to see my parents start a business that later became to make millions they are my inspiration. I also wanted to go into business so that one day I can take care of my parents.5) What advice would you give to aspiring entrepreneurs?  I would say what ever it is that you dream of, as long as you living your passion life is so much more fulfilling. When I decided to go into hair school I said it didn’t matter how much money I made as long as I enjoyed going to work each day. I find that because I’m passionate about what I do, it doesn’t feel like work. Plus when it is challenging, you are more likely to not give up because it’s what you love. Don’t give up and do what you love!

We would like to thank Mai for speaking with us.
