Keyla is a licensed beautician in Columbus, Ohio. She was born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio where she perfected her gift of braiding hair by practicing on relatives. Her passion for hair began at the tender age of eight as she watched her mother braid hair. This skill merely polished with age, and as a teenager and young adult, she found herself making money by styling hair for friends and relatives.
In 2014, Keyla received her Natural Hair Managers license from New Directions Beauty Institute where she studied Cosmetology with a specialization in Natural Hair. In 2015 she also became certified as a Hair Loss Specialist, specializing in Non-Surgical hair replacement. She has become quite the entrepreneur venturing into the hair vendor, t-shirt, wigs, hair journal and hair product business.
In March of 2015 she registered her business: Naturally Chic This trendy line was conceived on the notion that as a stylist she should have a brand that represents her, and she feels confident when she wears her natural hair. She wants to promote awareness that everyone should be confident in their natural skin.
Her mission is promoting healthy hair as well educating clients on proper maintenance techniques to preserve the integrity of their hair. "Promoting Healthy Hair & That's No-Lye"
When she is not styling hair, she spends her leisure time being a mother to her three children and traveling. Her most recent place to travel was Montego Bay Jamaica.
