About Ms. Hair and Humor

As a late career changer, Ms. Hair and Humor, whose real name is Kamilah, decided to leave her luxury jewelry career behind and pursue the beauty industry. After receiving both natural hair stylist and cosmetology licenses, Kamilah’s passion fueled her purpose to remind women of their (inner) beauty through the power of laughter and hairstyling.

Recognized for her big hair and big laughs, Ms. Hair and Humor created her own online buzz which helped popularize knotless braids via hashtags such as #TheFutureisKnotless and #MsHairandHumorknotlessbraids. This made for an effective marketing effort to shift the awareness of painless box braids and everyday women and celebrity clients alike secured highly sought appointments with Ms. Hair and Humor for knotless braids.
