Meet the Team


Amani Sankofa, LE, Lash Artist

Some interesting facts about myself. I am a Licensed Esthetician- graduate from Cinta- Aveda Institute, of which I am trained in waxing, facials, skin care & also certified body sculpting, a new mum to a beautiful baby boy, and a businesswoman building a persisting brand which continues to flourish and grow each year. Growing up, I've always had a very creative mindset. Someone who dreamt big and always wanted to share my unique talents and creative ideas with others. As a young teenager, I knew I would either do hair professionally or something within the beauty industry. With that being said, I decided to pursue my love and passion for beauty enhancements and became a double certified Lash Technician in 2018. Having 5+ years of experience, I can confidently say I love what I do and it shows in my work. My favorite lash sets are free-styling. This gives me an opportunity to create versatile looks for my clients with full trust and creativity. Overall, I am highly skilled in all current styles of lashing.I am very excited to join the team at The Afterlash Salon and bring you all my high positive energy! I look forward to meeting many of you in the near future.
