Hair & Makeup for commercial video shoot with Shark Tank Star Robert Herjavec

IMG_2366Yesterday, Monday, January 26th, 2015, DeeDee had the opportunity to do commercial hair and makeup for Robert Herjavec.  Mr. Herjavec is one of North America’s most recognizable business leaders and you may recognize him from the hit TV show, Shark Tank.

DeeDee was approached by Jr. Associate Producer, Bridget McCarthy, and Producer Manager, Briean Nagahashi, to provide commercial high-definition hair and makeup for Mr. Herjavec while he was filming “Beyond the Tank” with Chord Buddy creator, Travis Perry, in Dothan, Alabama.

When Travis entered the Shark Tank, he was more confident than ever of the future success of the Chord Buddy and ready to negotiate with the Sharks. His biggest stipulation was the Ch?ord Buddy will continue to be manufactured here in the U.S.A.


Travis was asking for $125,000.00 and would give up 10% equity stake in the business in return, valuing the Chord Buddy at $1.2 million at that time. Total sales have already surpassed the $500k mark and already has a purchase order with Sam’s Club to place 50 Chord Buddies in all 5000 locations.


The Sharks LOVE this Idea and the offers started coming in from all sides. Interestingly no “sharks” seem to want to partner up on this deal and Travis gets four offers from four Sharks all with the same type of offer, a $125,000.00 for 20% of the guitar learning business. It all comes down to who can help the Chord Buddy Guitar Business the most. In the end, Travis Perry partners with Robert Herjevic for an additional $50k and makes a deal for $175,000.00 and a 20% stake in the Chord Buddy Guitar Business.



DeeDee spent the day with cast and crew at two different shooting locations: The Chord Buddy Offices and Bethel Baptist Church. With an 8:45 AM hair and makeup call, DeeDee got Robert Herjavec camera-ready. Throughout the day, she touched up his hair and make-up during shooting so that he maintained a perfect look.

DeeDee says, “It was an awesome experience! Robert Herjavec was great to work with. Thank you to Sony Picture Studios, FinnMax LLC, and Beyond the Tank for the opportunity to do HD makeup and hair! I enjoyed being on set and spending the day with everyone from the cast and crew.”

Watch for the episode coming next fall. We will keep you updated on when it will air and to look for DeeDee’s name in the ending credits! If you would like to book DeeDee for a commercial shoot please contact here.
