PuffCuff LLC was founded in Romeoville, IL in August of 2013. The company made its first sale in 2014 and subsequently moved to Georgia in June of 2014. The PuffCuff Hair Clamp is manufactured in the U.S.A., and can be purchased online via this website, Amazon.com, Sally Beauty, Walmart.com, in addition to a collection of other independently owned beauty retailers.

We developed the PuffCuff Hair Clamp with the simple idea of creating a tool that makes it easy to achieve stylish looks without stressing curly hair or causing pain from pulling and tension. This tool not only needed to put a stop to tension headaches and curl breakage, but it also had to be a sanitary, durable, and affordable option for curly-haired consumers to be a viable replacement to hair-damaging elastic bands.

While a simple idea in theory, most hair accessories on the market are created for straight hair, making the PuffCuff a first of its kind. Unlike curly hair, straight hair only comes in one type: straight. Meanwhile, curls come in a spectrum that ranges from loose waves to tightly curled coils. The PuffCuff is designed to work with a variety of hair types from 2c to 4c, allowing our curlfriends to create many beautiful styles without headache-causing cinching, pulling, ripping, or tearing of their hair.


Not only is Ceata the mind behind the PuffCuff, but she is also the first African American woman to hold three U.S. patents (with a four patent-pending) for a natural hair accessory. After her own natural hair journey, Ceata became a champion for self-love and self-acceptance for everyone- male or female- with thick, curly, or textured hair. Ceata also serves as the creative director for PuffCuff, with over 20 years of experience as a highly-skilled graphic designer. She oversees her creative, marketing, and social media team to produce rich content and develop PuffCuff's brand recognition.

In 2018, Ceata was awarded the President's Innovation Award from Sally Beauty, became a Babson College BWEL Alumni, and received two entrepreneurial certifications from Cornell University. In 2020, Ceata was named a recipient of the New Voices + Barefoot Wine #WeStanForHer Grant.
