The PuffCuff Hair Revolution
Hundreds of attendees from across the metro area and beyond came out to support The PuffCuff’s first ever #DitchThe Band Live event at the Gathering Spot in Atlanta Tech Village.
Ceata E. Lash, a freelance graphic designer and mother of three adorable boys, invented the revolutionary PuffCuff hair accessory when she was unable to find a product on the market that worked for her natural hair. She specifically designed The PuffCuff hair styling clamp for thick, coily, and/or textured hair.
Around seven years ago, Ceata made a decision to stop chemically relaxing her hair. She wanted to live a healthier and more natural chemical-free lifestyle. During the journey to embrace her natural hair, she found it difficult to find a product that would hold her hair the way she wanted and one that wouldn’t break or damage her hair. Everyone that has ever used a hair band for ponytails or other updos knows that they break hair off easily and they do not hold their elasticity.
The vision of the PuffCuff design came to her when she saw that many other African American women were making the same natural hair lifestyle change and that they were all looking to achieve easy and fashionable hairstyles. Ceata created an affordable unisex hair styling tool that wouldn’t put stress on hair and one that would also be durable and sanitary – The PuffCuff.
The PuffCuff comes in the following sizes: Micro, Mini, Junior, and Original. It all depends on how big or how small you want your hairstyle to be – similar to the sizing of a ponytail but with the bonus of being able to create a larger design and the added feature of stability. When wairing hair bands, I would have to adjust the band throughout the day because it would move or become loose. Not with The PuffCuff because of the comb design, it secures your hairstyle in place.
The #DitchTheBand Live event was created as an opportunity for new and existing users of the PuffCuff to receive interactive hair styling tutorials from professional hair stylists and hands-on support on how to use all of the different sizes of the Puffcuff.
In addition to the hair styling tutorials at #DitchTheBand Live, attendees were treated to a full day of live performances, a vendor marketplace, and loaded swag bags.
A few of Black-owned businesses that were featured in the Vendor Marketplace:
- Peace of Popcorn
- Stolen Outfitters
- Symphony Chips
- Two Twisted Sistahs
The main attraction at the event was the PuffCuff Hair Show which presented demonstrations on how to rock The PuffCuff. Produced by mobile glam squad YB Limited, the hair show presented PuffCuff adorned styles that can take you from the boardroom to the runway. Take a look at ThePuffCuff website HERE for hairstyle inspirations and tutorials.
I was surprised at the stability and versatility of hairstyles the PuffCuff allows you to create.
I am happily saying “goodbye” to headache-inducing elastic hair bands that often cause hair breakage, breed bacteria and never cease to require replacement. PuffCuffs are going to be the most utilized hair accessory tool that my daughter and I will be using from now on!
Embrace your natural hair ladies and gentleman because ThePuffCuff has you covered to achieve easy and stylish hairstyles in a matter of minutes. #DitchTheBand

The Gathering Spot
#DitchTheBand Live was held at The Gathering Spot, a next-generation private membership club in Atlanta. The club serves as a hub of diverse collaboration, connections and experiences uniquely positioned to build the future of what community looks like. The club was very impressive and I look forward to returning. Click HERE to find out membership details.
All attendees at the #DitchTheBand Live event received a complimentary PuffCuff. However, I loved the PuffCuff so much after learning the benefits of them and watching the versatility of hairstyles that can be done with them – I purchased several of The PuffCuffs in all different sizes. I really do love The PuffCuff!
