MEET THE COFFEE CLUB DIVAS
Francesca DiSantiPennello, by Santi, LLC
The journey from professional hair stylist to inventor and entrepreneur was a trip made over several years. I started the way most people do – with an idea. I had a picture in my mind of a different type of hair styling tool – a hybrid that would combine the best features of both a brush and a comb. But beyond having that concept, I didn’t know what to do. Fortunately, I made a connection with a branch campus of Penn State University, and my product idea became a Capstone Project for a senior design engineering student. By helping me create the prototype for
“a pennello” – a brush that fits the hand like a glove – he was able to finish his degree,
and I was able to start a new career!
You will have a crush on this brush!
