Friday, September 1, 2017

If Instagram stalking had an award, I am most certain I would place at LEAST 3rd and nothing less. This week on my daily stalk I stumbled upon Nikisha. Not only is her hair fly, but her style is beyond amazing. I'll let you learn more about this beautiful queen for yourself below!


Meet Nikisha....

My name is Nikisha Oliver known as kinkykurls_ on Instagram and YouTube. I'm a military wife and a mother of 2 daughters. I'm from a small town in South Carolina. I'm really passionate about natural hair and fashion. Actually I'm kind of obsessed I love everything about natural hair and fashion. I love how achieving a bomb twist out and getting all dressed up in a cute outfit makes a woman feel so confident.


When and why did you decide to get rid of the creamy crack if you did? 
I decided to return back to natural in 2014 reason being I was simply tired of sitting in hair salons for over 5 hours for a style that only last for 2 weeks. Before returning back to natural I wore my hair in braids and slick back pony tails so it was really no reason to relax my hair. I transitioned for 7 months and BIG CHOP February 7 2015 best decision I ever made.


It is true that we are not our hair, or anyone else's, but do you have any natural hair crushes? It's very true that we are not our hair. I can definitely say that my hair is my crown and that I'm proud to be able to rock my natural hair with confidence. Of course I have natural hair crushes they are none other than the beautiful Erika Badu and Free from 106 and park.

What are your inspirations in life and inspiration for your hair? 
My goal is to inspire my daughters and women to embrace their natural hair and personal style with confidence. My hair goals are to reach mid back Healthy hair.


When you are going through your daily regimen what products do you reach for first and why? 


My daily hair regimen is to spritz my hair with water and a light leave-in conditioner. I reach for anything that leaves my hair moisturized throughout the day.

What is your go to style in the winter and the summer?

My go to style is definitely a high puff in the summer and braids in the colder months.

The most important thing I've learned is to keep my hair moisturized and to never get my hair bleach again "lol"

What does it feel like owning your own business/blog with many other people owning larger business companies/blogs? Is it intimidating?

It's an amazing feeling running my own blog so that I can talk about and share pictures of the things that I'm passionate about. It's many GIRL BOSSES out here with amazing blogs with huge a following. It doesn't intimidate me it motivates to go hard because I know one day I will get there.


What has been one of your biggest obstacles so far in your career and how did you face it?

My biggest obstacle since starting my blogging career has been to keep pushing myself no matter if I get 2 views on YouTube or a couple likes on Instagram.

What keeps you motivated (pertaining to balancing your life and your company/blog)?

I stay motivated by having talks with myself and listening to motivational videos on YouTube.

How would you describe your signature style and has it helped influence your designs?

I would say my style is very girlie. I would say yeah it influences my design and style of choice.


What was your support system like after you made your decision to go natural?

My support system was youtube, hubby and me telling myself everyday 'girl this natural hair looks good on you.' Lol


Where do you see your blog in the next five years?


I see my movement being a big name in the natural hair community in the near future.

Any advice for your fellow natural hair folks?

My advice for any girl /women is that you can do anything you put your mind to as long as you believe in yourself and God.
