Stasha The Inventor
Known for the details in her stitch braids, in 2009, Stasha launched Magic Finger’s Studios, what started as a braiding salon in Brooklyn. This has since evolved into a licensing partnership with Ampro, where she has developed and launched her own custom product line under the Shine ’n Jam imprint. Working closing with Ampro, Stasha’s Magic Finger’s Shine’n Jam has become the #1 product for braiders across the world.
The success of the partnership led to product extensions such as mousse, sheen, combs, oil, and hair bonnets. The newest partnership added to the Trinidadian braiders resume is her pre-stretched braiding hair, Magic Finger’s Hair, made with 100% Kanekalon.
She has also invented the Magic Helper which is a U.S. patented tool that saves braiders time on prepping hair.
