Our Cofounders’ Story

Forty percent of salon space goes unused every day. ShearShare connects salon owners to 1,000,000 stylists to fill empty salon chairs on demand. With ShearShare, salon owners increase their revenue by 3X on unused space they already have, and stylists save an average of $175/wk in overhead costs. ShearShare is replacing cold calling and Craigslist as the industry standard for helping stylists find professional space to work.

Dr. Tye and Courtney Caldwell are tech visionaries and pioneers, American businessmen, philanthropists, and entrepreneurs whose aim is to help beauty professionals around the world build efficient, passion-filled businesses. They have disrupted the B2B beauty industry by building the first-of-its-kind platform that allows stylists to find and book empty salon space on demand.

Individually, Tye holds a Doctorate of Professional Barbering and is a #1 best-selling author on how to achieve long-term success in the beauty and style industry. A recognized beauty expert with more than 20 years of experience in salon and barbershop operations, company culture, customer retention, and team building, he is often called upon to speak at cosmetology and barber schools nationwide. His award-winning salon in Dallas, Texas, is the backdrop for “behind the chair” business workshops, how-to beauty seminars, mentoring sessions, and one-on-one business coaching.
ShearShare is Tech.Co Startup of the Year 2016

Prior to cofounding ShearShare with her husband, Courtney fast-tracked international sales and marketing success for brands such as Zendesk, Zenefits, and Qualtrics. She spent the last two decades building winning teams as the vice president of marketing for Marketing Advocate, global director of Oracle’s worldwide digital marketing strategy and innovations group, and head of digital demand generation and JAPAC field marketing at RightNow Technologies. Courtney’s leadership in demand and revenue generation at RightNow Technologies was instrumental in the $1.45B acquisition of the company.

ShearShare was born out of sheer necessity. When Tye expanded his salon several years ago, he noticed a shift away from the industry standard: instead of signing up cosmetologists and barbers under long-term contracts, he started to receive inquiries for day leases of his suites. Looking to recoup the investment for his salon remodel, he decided to host the visiting cosmetologists and charge them on a per-day basis. After numerous requests from stylists and manually matching cosmetologists for three years, the idea for ShearShare was born!
