This Sunday, naturalistas will be able to catch the founders of CurlMix — a clean beauty brand for curly hair — debut on the mid-season premiere of “Shark Tank.” The episode will air on ABC at 10/9c.
CurlMix was founded by Chicago couple Kim and Tim Lewis in 2015. The couple had quite the journey to founding their startup that included Tim making an appearance on “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire,” where he ended up winning $100,000.
As the couple’s second startup, CurlMix has seen an impressive transformation.
At first, it was the first-ever do-it-yourself hair care subscription box, where people were given the ingredients necessary to make different products. Now, the brand has evolved into a hair care line, and the opportunity to share their work on “Shark Tank” is one that the couple is ecstatic about.
“I screamed,” Kim Lewis exclaimed when sharing her reaction to the news. “We were so nervous on the day of our audition because we couldn’t find a babysitter, but we were on a mission! We showed up with our then six month old in tow, and even though he cooed through the entire pitch, we did exactly what we went there to do and the rest is history!”
In celebration of the couple’s appearance on the show, fans in the Chicago area can attend a watch party and pop-up shop on March 3rd from 7-10pm CST.
The event will also feature a talk-back session from Kim and Tim, who will share details about meeting with the Sharks. If you’re interested in attending, make sure to grab your tickets here!
