What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Prototype Gallery

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

If you razor shave your head, it is likely you would have adopted a face shaving product to do it. I have done it and nothing is designed specifically for wet shaving your head.

I took a lessons from my 98 year old mother whose complexion is often mistaken for 20 years her junior. Her skin care secrets originated from Northern China enduring harsh winters and scorching summers. When I balanced the secrets with wild west traditional art of wet shaves, Sphynx baldstyling was crafted. We discovered a tamed wilderness in a perfectly balanced formula for your scalp care during a wet shave.

Sphynx baldstyling shaving oil and baldstyling shave serum contains only natural ingredients. You can achieve super finishes that's never been experienced before. For completeness, a baldstyling Spa Tonic and baldstyling Cream Cologne were designed for you to properly treat yourself.

We learned that scalps are often damaged by soap's hash actions. The baldstyling waterless cleansing bubbles is a breaking category of product that will deep cleanse soap free and gorgeously.

These products are unique and opens a new category for the beauty industry. Designed for a specific purpose, the performance will be a new experience for the user. We can enjoy a better smoother razor shaven finish.

Every ingredient included in these preparations was chosen their performance properties, a knowledge we learned from history backed up by science and we are pleased to be able to share it with you.

Having tried the products on bald people including myself, everyone agreed that the results were better.

We want to get enough interest to kick start a pilot manufacturing run for the products so everyone can experience a new sensation that awaits.

The success of this project is down to everyone who has adopted Sphynx for head shaving. The Sphynx system encompasses appliances, tools and products designed for professionals. It's time for baldstyling to become mainstream.  Bald is beautiful.

Risks and challenges

Sphynx Razor Head shave products are in the cosmetics category and require a Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR). (reports images).

The due diligence work included confirming the examiners are qualified to required standards. (certification images)

We have engaged shipping companies who are experienced freight forwarders of our product category. We are fully insured and all import documents (eg MSDS) and regulations are doubly checked and pre-declared by them and correct before the journey begins. Worst case is repeat manufacture and we suffer a delay invoking the Force majeure clause.

Should the container be subject to an inspection, the paperwork would just confirm the content. The risk is delay and not failure to deliver.

We have worked to mitigate the risk of new category of product failing and there is no commercial model to adopt for the project. It is common knowledge that razor shaving is trending. Nonetheless, new categories are unpredictable. We engaged the benefit of being able to spot our target audience from a distance. Our marketing strategy is proactive. The baldstyled demographic is large enough to make our success more probable.

We want to reach everybody, gain momentum timely enough and engage them to try the new experience.

The majority may take their time to trying something new. We hope that the same proportion of the public who have a razor shaven head are also in the Kickstarter community. We might go over the tipping point if we were to get your attention to back the project.
