About this project
With the Bang Wrangler, now you will have a stylish way to keep hair at bay while participating in fun activities like surfing, kayaking, scuba diving, swimming, windsurfing...whatever floats your boat. (Pun totally intended.)
Our names are Diana and Ashley, and we grew up in California, surrounded by all kinds of fun to be had in the water. We swam and played water polo in school, and we've since gone on to enjoy sports like surfing, whitewater kayaking, and scuba diving.
So we know firsthand that there's nothing worse than one pesky issue killing a day on the water. For us, one of these problems has always been our hair. We were frustrated by the tying and re-tying of pony tails, the inadequate clips, and the cloth headbands that moved around at the worst possible time. It was a minor problem, and yet it was enough to prevent us from enjoying what we were doing. We couldn't find a good solution, so we wanted to make one.
We know we aren't the only ones dealing with this issue, and that's why we decided to create the Bang Wrangler.

We've spent the last few months developing the prototypes and testing them out. Now, the Bang Wrangler is ready to be created and put in the hands of other girls who love water sports.
Risks and challenges
Anytime you go from prototype to final product, there are some risks and challenges associated. We will be creating a brand new mold for a product that's never been made, so it's not guaranteed that we won't have any kinks to work out, and timing of production isn't 100% locked down.
However, we have not only done enough prep that we feel issues are unlikely, but we are also well prepared to tackle any unexpected problems that come our way. We have a personal relationship with the factory, thanks to Ashley being on the ground in Shanghai and able to visit the production facilities in person. We've also created many prototypes and tested the factory's stretch silicone swim cap material extensively, so we know what we're making will serve its purpose and be a high-quality product.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
