About this project

WIG CHATEAU:Chic Wig Organizer for Wig Connoisseurs

The world’s first modern wigorganizer system designed to store, maintain and organize wig collections and wig accessories elegantly.

Wig Chateau solves a real problem in the wig market: a lack of wig storage products specifically designed for fashionably displaying wigs at home.

After wig wearers invest from $20 to over $10,000 on wigs, their valuable assets are tucked away in plastic bags, boxes, drawers, shelves, or Styrofoam Wig Heads scattered throughout the home.  Bags and boxes cause creases in wigs; and trap bacteria and moisture which could lead to dampness.

Wig Chateau is a patented wig storage system that displays and organizes hairpieces for easy selection, grooming, and proper ventilation while blending well with any home décor

Wig Chateau helps retains wigs shapes, saves time, optimizes space and supports your lifestyle by providing the convenience of having your wig products and wigs ready to go on a moment’s notice.

Catering to high-end wig wearers, the stylish units are configurable to store 4, 8 or 12 wigs and are available in three contemporary color options: Glamour Girl Gold, Charisma Chrome, and Throwing Shade Pink.An attractive wall sconce set - each holding a single wig is also available.

  • No more searching through bags and boxes for wigs

  • Have instant access to wigs to see what look you want to capture at that moment which saves time

  • Retain your wigs’ shapes and styles

  • Groom wigs on unit without having to hold wig heads

  • Feel good about prominently displaying your precious wigs on their Wig Chateau in your bedroom or walk-in closet

Any product that does not allow you to:

  • Store a reasonable number of wigs in one place

  • Consolidate your wig products

  • Comb your wigs on the display unit without tipping or wobbling

  • Look fashionable and accentuating to your home décor

  • Feel good about prominently displaying your wig collection

  • Change your look on a moment’s notice

THAT PRODUCT IS WORTHLESS!

Wig Chateau satisfies all of these requirements!

Wig Chateau also supports: Fashion scarves, church hats, headphones, headbands, masks, ponytails, wig falls, wig toppers/fillers, extensions, hair buns, hair nets/clips/accessories. Additionally, you can flat iron and roller set wigs on the unit and more. The creative uses for your Wig Chateau are up to you!

  • STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY

Made from vacuum metalized nickel-plated polycarbonate with a scratch resistant clear coat in metallic gold or chrome finish. Throwing Shade Pink is non-metallic and has a glossy finish.

We incorporated a 3 leg triangular base to give Wig Chateau the necessary strength to support the forces of grooming with no tipping or wobbling. Any wig storage product that does not have structural rigidity, while maintaining its elegance, is a wig-on-a-stick product with no value!

Every design aspect of Wig Chateau was calculated as part of the design process.The distance and angles between the arms were evaluated to ensure that wigs of various lengths and volumes did not interfere with one another, creating tangles and overlaps.

In early prototypes, Styrofoam particles fell on the wigs under them creating a snow-like effect.The plates on top of the Wig Chateau arms are used to catch the Styrofoam particles before they settle on the wigs below.

On top of each plate is a pike used to secure the wig head to the arm. The integrated pike accommodates any standard sized 11” wig head with a precut hole.

This dutiful attention to detail is the reason why Wig Chateau is your only choice for protection of your wig investment.

The load-bearing center pole has sufficient thickness and diameter to accommodate the forces associated with wig grooming. The arms and legs securely lock into the pole.All elements of the Wig Chateau were engineered to add to its structural integrity.

  • STORAGE

Designed to optimize space, Wig Chateau compactly stores up to 12 wigs with minimal space consumption. The detachable CROWN CADDY retains wig essentials like sprays, brushes, T-pins, or hair weaving needles and thread.

  • CONVERTIBLE FUNCTIONALITY

Wig Chateau stylish stands can be configured with three tiers available for 4, 8, or 12 wigs.The 4 Wig Chateau is upgradable to 8 or 12 with the purchase of additional tiers sold separately.So your Wig Chateau can grow with you!

  • VELVET WIG HEADS AND GOLD-PLATED T-PINS

Complementary black velvet wig heads and gold-plated Wig T-Pins adds to the exclusivity and elegance of Wig Chateau.

  • SUPERIOR STYLE

Wig Chateau is designed and crafted with meticulous attention to detail, and blends well with any home décor.

The end result is a long-lasting, resilient product with beauty and elegance that creates a passionate and evocative wig experience for you and those viewing your treasured collection.

Wigs have played a significant role in my active lifestyle. Where I go, my wig follows.  After opening the bag of my 20th wig, I realized there was no place to store it, because I ran out of closet shelf space. As a wig connoisseur, who has invested $1,000’s of dollars in wigs, I have yet to encounter a product that stores multiple wigs simultaneously and is aesthetically pleasing.

With a flash of insight and desire to solve the problem of inadequate wig storage I took action.  What began as a napkin drawing transformed into an endeavor more thrilling and monumental than we ever envisioned!

Conceptualized from my home in Cleveland, Ohio Wig Chateau was born. To make Wig Chateau a reality, we underwent an extensive research and development process. It began by creating multiple CAD Designs and then fabricating the designs into working multiple physical prototypes. Thru the various prototypes, we were able to test the style, storage and functionality of various features and explore the variety of options available to us. Below are photos of the evolution of Wig Chateau.

After evaluating many designs based on beauty, function, structure and manufacturability we achieved the perfect balance of form and function.

ORIGINAL PARTS BEFORE THE COLOR “THROWING SHADE PINK”

Inspired from various interior design magazines, we saw that gold and chrome were great accenting colors. In addition, we knew that pink is a popular color not only for its appeal, but it also has other important nuances and meanings that we endorsed as well. Pink was personally and carefully hand selected, mixed and made by me in my kitchen until I came up with an original color of “Throwing Shade Pink”.

This is how we arrived at the original 3 colors.Furthermore, we wanted to make sure that the colors were engaging, as well, so we decided not to just name them gold, chrome and pink but to add a trendy flare.

Glamour Girl Gold because when you put on your wig you want to feel glamourous!

Charisma Chrome to charismatically accentuate your look and enhance your inner beauty!

Throwing Shade Pink because every wig wearer wants to walk out looking good, feeling fierce and throwing shade!You want the pride associated with the look you have chosen for yourself that day.

From the final prototype we decided to create wig sconces that are complementary to the Wig Chateau in color and design. The idea was positively embraced amongst random wig wearing folk and our focus group. The Wig Chateau Sconce adheres to any flat surface so it does not consume any floor space, it accents any environment, supports any hair length, and screws are optional but not a requirement. The sconces will come with industry-strength manufacturing tape and mounting instruction manual.

That was the motivation behind the names and it is a fun product.We want to make sure that the fun is captured in the wig wearing experience which is shown in our Ad and Video Gallery.

We have learned through various prototypes how to build durable, long lasting, and elegant wig display units. These lessons will carry over into future products.We chose the name Wig Display Systems because we have an understanding of the lifestyle of wig-wearers. Based on this understanding and developed expertise, we have on the drawing boardthe next generation of Wig Chateau products that will continue to revolutionize the wig storage and display industry.

Here is our plan to help get your Wig Chateau to you as soon as possible.

We are so confident in the durability and quality of Wig Chateau, we are providing a no questions asked 5 year warranty exclusively to Kickstarter backers. This means, if anything at all happens to your Wig Chateau, simply send the defective part back and we will repair or replace the defective part. All you have to pay is shipping.

Risks and challenges

We have worked extremely hard to prepare Wig Chateau for Kickstarter, full scale manufacturing, and fulfillment, but here are the risks:

MANUFACTURING: Creating the tooling to manufacture a product of this size is very expensive which is why I need your help! After many quotes and expert consultations, we have appropriately determined our budget and Kickstarter request. There is typically a 60 day lead time to create the molds for a product of this size and this is where delays could occur. To minimize that possibility we are working with tooling manufacturers with a track record for prompt quality.

PRODUCT ADJUSTMENTS: As Wig Chateau gets ready for production, there will likely be some minor adjustments to improve the final product. Pre-production prototypes are made to test and refine the product and allow us to incorporate our adjustments and those suggested by experienced manufacturing partners. We will build the first set of preproduction parts to refine tolerances, finishes and make sure it meets our design specifications. At that point, we will then begin the process of ordering the parts in bulk and building the inventory required in preparation for shipment.

FULFILLMENT: We will be working with manufacturers who have 20+ years of experience delivering excellent products in tremendous quantities. While there may be unexpected circumstances, any obstacle will be addressed by combining our internal knowledge with external expertise, and an overall goal of making the best possible product for you.

We have finalized our initial prototype but to advance to the next phase requires significant capital. We need your help to afford the costly fixed production components and meet minimum order quantities.

Any pledge amount brings us one step closer to our goal. Help us bring Wig Chateau to market by clicking the ‘Back This Project’ button at the top of the page, or by helping us spread the word by sharing our page.

Just to be clear, Kickstarter is an all or nothing proposition. Nobody is charged until the goal is met and the campaign has ended. We must hit $150,000 to begin production.
