Shanell beautifying with Shamani’s Creations
Shamani’s Creations is a beauty skin care company that is located in Boarded Hall, Christ Church. The company is owned and operated by Shanell Lewis and offers a wide range of products in the beauty industry ranging from cosmetology services to the creation of body oils and body butters.
Speaking to the media Lewis said that she decided to become an entrepreneur a little over ten years ago when she started doing hair and nails at her home.
“Shamani’s Creations began ten years ago as I started out doing hair. I remember wearing a wig I made and a girl that was my friend from a previous job saw me and asked me, who made that wig for you? and I said, “Me”. She subsequently booked an appointment with me; I did the wig for her. At the time I had never made any wigs for anyone else, but the end result was very beautiful. After making the wig for my friend successfully, I began marketing myself on Instagram @shamaniscreations and building my clientele. In 2019, I did a nail course, and then I started to do nails and even built a small salon at my home,” she said.
Lewis, who is a multi-talented entrepreneur, decided in 2020 that she would undertake a Certificate in Lotion and Soap making so she could understand the art of making natural skincare products. After successfully completing that course, she decided to launch her own skincare line.
“In July last year I saw a beauty course online and as it was reasonable, I decided to take it. As I have very dry skin, I decided that if I could learn how to formulate a cream that could work on my skin it could work for others. After the successful completion of the course, I began to make my own lotions and soaps,” she said.
The owner of Shamani’s Creations said that one of the most rewarding experiences of her business is when she makes someone happy.
“My most rewarding experience is making someone happy. Whether it is when I am creating a wig for someone and the client starts freaking out or when I do someone's eyelashes or a nail set, as long as the customer likes it, I feel good. Once a customer gets their service and they are pleased, I feel rewarded,” she said.
Lewis said her skincare line is extensive as it caters to the entire body and is all organic products.
“The response has been great with my products thus far. My skincare line is very extensive as I offer a line that consists of body butters, lotions, hair oil, pain relief oil, pain relief balm, lip butter, lip balm, body scrub, soap which is catered to persons with eczema and dry skin, body fragrance oil and baby body butter. Persons can also customize their order to meet their specific skin needs as well,” she said.
The qualified nail and lash technician said that she did a lot of research into her skincare line and realized that having natural products is best because it nourishes your body.
“Organic products are better suited for the skin because they give the skin all of the nourishment that it needs,” she said.
