About Kinkz

Kinkz started out with a hair tie that’s genius in its simplicity. I wanted to create a hair tie that would allow curly-haired women to experiment with a variety of styles without having to worry about damaging their hair. I instantly fell in love with my creation, and so did all of my friends and colleagues who tried the hair ties! From there, I knew that it was time to share my creations with all the other natural-haired ladies out there.

Kinkz is more than a business to me: It’s a passion project. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to encourage more women to embrace their natural tresses. In fact, even the name of the brand is a nod to the beauty of natural hair—I chose the name Kinkz to celebrate my kinky, coily hair and to remind other women to do the same.
