Everybody knows that the pandemic created a whole lot of hustlers! NotKnotDani, aka Dani B, is no different. In 2019, she gained an accolade that not many in this day and age can obtain! She INVENTED and patented a whole product for braiders called the Hair Wall.
WHAT IS THE HAIR WALL?
This product is the ultimate braiding solution. It allows stylists to have a better overall consistency of braids in an efficient amount of time. It’s, so far, the only one of its kind. Braiding racks and thread holders exist on the market, they can become messy and time consuming leaving you better off to just separate the hair manually for each braid. The good thing is that the Hair Wall comes in different sizes and colors. This means not only efficiency for the client, but a sleek and professional look for the braider. The best part is, it’s portable by design in contrast to the bulky braiding racks.
HOW WAS IT INVENTED?
Dani has been braiding hair for 2 1/2 years, but she’s already killing the game. One night she was prepping for her next appointment. After taking 8 hours to finish a client earlier that day, she vowed to find a solution to prevent that from happening again. She didn’t have space or money to buy the already invented hair rack, so she had to come up with something else before her next client arrived.
Although it’s not the same wall we know of today, she invented it THAT NIGHT with dollar store hooks and a simple flat surface. When she finally got started on her next appointment – she literally cut her time in half to an impressive 4 hours! From then on she started doing her research on if it had already been done. Fortunate for her, it never had been! She had a real winner on her hands!
TRAILBLAZING FOR THE GIRLIES
Since this is a fairly new invention, it’s just now hitting the beauty supply stores. If you don’t live in Kentucky or Indiana, it’s not as simple as walking into the store and purchasing one. However, you can order them online!
Dani plans to use proceeds from her invention to help new braiders invest in themselves with her product. Not a braider, but still want to support this Black Owned Business? People are already using the wall for businesses that are not even hair related. You can use it to store jewelry or a place to hold your keys. It could serve as a work of art for your wall, or any other creative ways you can think of!
