For wig wearers on the go, the hardest thing to figure out is how to store the wig when you take it off, and style it before putting it on. This is where the “Strand Stand” comes in. It is an inflatable wig stand that is easy to pack in a tote or carry on.
This is the flagship product of Maximilienne Mbinack’s company, “Wig Wear”, which she started in 2019. Wig Wear is a premiere hair care accessory company for black women. Maximilienne says the idea was born out of frustration on a trip to Greece where she realized stuffing a mannequin head into a suitcase was just not going to cut it.
Maximilienne is a Howard University alumnus.
