Bald styling product range achieves Kickstarter funding goal

2016-12-23

December 23, 2016, Southport, UK. Press Dispensary. Bald styling startup iHead announces that it has today achieved its initial funding goal on crowdfunding website Kickstarter. 50 backers have made pledges amounting to almost 104% of the target amount for funding, with 12 days of fundraising still to go.

The pledges are for seed funding to launch the commercial development of the Sphynx System, a series of products (including patented hardware and wetware) dedicated solely to bald styling. iHead founder and entrepreneur David Lam explained: "This result is a great Christmas gift not only for us at iHead but for the world's salons, spas and professional stylists who will gain from it a new category within hair and beauty and an entirely new, repeating revenue stream and customer base. The phrases "bald styling", "bald stylist" and "Sphynx", and the industry behind them, are today much closer to joining the mainstreams of hair and beauty, and male grooming."

After the holidays, iHead will be firming up its plans for development, product trials and marketing, leading to second round funding.

Notes for editors

Based in Southport, UK, the startup business iHead was founded by David Lam with the mission to develop the subsector, culture and, in time, trend of bald styling, bringing the phrases "bald styling" and "bald stylist" into the mainstream, and to create and manufacture the products that service the subsector, through the Sphynx brand. Initially iHead will serve the professional bald stylist in salons, barbers, spas and their own business, and later move to direct retail.

The iHead cosmetic products conform to EU regulations for safety and are certified as such.

iHead cosmetic products and shaving tools are offered as rewards to Kickstarter backers.
