PITCH: Beard King

About the Company: BEARD KING is a lifestyle brand and grooming products line. For anyone with a beard, mustache, sideburns or any facial hair all have one problem in common. The fact is grooming facial hair can be a very messy and time consuming task. Since bathroom mirrors are most often used to trim facial hair, by default the sink becomes the hair catcher. These tiny hair clippings spread across a wide area, getting caught on one's clothing, cracks and crevices of the mirror, counter, and eventually clogs the drains. We have solved this common household problem by inventing the world's first and only, patent pending product the Beard Bib. The only grooming tool that eliminates manual clean and allows for an easy disposal.
