About Us - The KinkyCurlyYaki Story

Our Story


How I became "Queen of Kank"

Vivian Kaye of KinkyCurlyYaki

love my natural hair. I also love wearing protective styles such as weaves, wigs & braids so that I can give my hair some rest from time to time, or to just be able change up my look depending on my mood. Girl....You know how it is.  

In 2010, after watching tons of videos of ladies torturing & killing their own natural hair to blend with exotic textures like "Brazilian", "Peruvian" & "Malaysian", I started searching for textures that looked believable and blended seamlessly with my own hair  (which is 4Z..and yes, I made that up!) as I was tired of the infamous "African in the front, Indian in the back".

So I searched and searched and searched. I found that most hair extension companies carried only light yaki or kinky straight, but it was buried underneath the exotic silky texture du jour.  

I made up my mind to create a company that only sold high quality, kinky, natural looking textured hair extensions. 

That's how KinkyCurlyYaki was born.

We're based in Toronto, Canada. We're family operated business with big hearts & big smiles. We pride ourselves on being straight forward, customer service focused and dedicated to keeping it kinky. So kinky, that's it's kanky. Word is bond. (See my 90s are showing!)

Since 2012, we've been fooling your friends, family & bae with 5 textures that look so real, you could swear it was growing out of your own head.

There are no synthetic fillers, no chemicals, no fake-o beauty supply hair shine on any of our textures.
