Everything in Texas is big – from the plate size to its citizens’ hair. Yet, for those with naturally thick, coily and textured hair, styling tools and accessories are often too flimsy, cause damage or create tension. As a solution to this problem, PuffCuff Hair Clamp wrangles big hair and rounds up Texan beauty fans with its innovative design and styling versatility.
Entrepreneur Ceata E. Lash of Marietta, GA experienced migraines when wearing elastic bands on her voluminous, naturally coily hair. Banana clips and other hair accessories were more suitable for thin or straight hair, neither which she possessed. In addition to the causing headaches, they often snagged or even ripped out her hair. Frustrated, she set out on a mission to create a functional tool to both secure big hair and allow it to maintain fullness without cinching, pulling or causing the user pain. Lash designed, patented and went to production on what would prove to be a revolutionary solution to a decades old problem.
Launched in February of 2014, the PuffCuff Hair Clamp was well received by the burgeoning natural hair community in the U.S., United Kingdom and the Netherlands. The durable, round, clamp has short teeth and a hook closure designed to accommodate Afro textures. This unisex tool meets the needs of a multicultural society whose hair is challenging to manage and even intimidating to stylists. Lash defends its design and function by emphasizing that the clamp is not a banana clip. She firmly states, “The PuffCuff is the replacement for obsolete hair accessories for the millions who have thick, textured hair and want to achieve trendy styles without pain or breakage.”
Now only available in their original 5″ clamp, the PuffCuff will soon launch its Jr, Mini and Micro sizes in early 2015, opening up their customer base to include those with wavy, straight and less dense hair.
For the holidays, PuffCuff debuted their limited edition PC Toolbox, a beauty gift box full of specially selected styling tools for grooming and maintaining lovely locks. It also includes the original 5″ PuffCuff Hair Clamp.
