Kes learned to braid growing up as a young child on Detroit’s east side. Born to Nigerian immigrant parents, braided hair styles were the norm in her community. As she became an adolescent and had the desire to wear more complex braided styles that were in alignment with the trends, she taught herself and learned from family members the techniques of braiding with extensions, installing sew-ins and two strand twist extensions; always learning by styling her own hair and the people in her community.

She began doing loc maintenance along with braiding and natural hairstyling while attending Wayne State University where she met Nefertiti at Textures by Nefertiti. Since then, Kes has been taking clients under Nefertiti’s guidance and mentorship.”

I am Niani B. Detroit Natural Hair Stylist at Textures by Nefertiti. I have been styling natural hair professionally since the age of 16. I pride myself in caring for the hair and not and I quote "sacrificing healthy hair for styles". In 2016 I saw a need to create a safe space for my clients to purchase all of their favorite natural beaute products in one place... and thus Beaute Anthologie was born! An online store and salon kiosk specializing in curating natural beaute products.

Always a student, I am currently working on expanding my knowledge of hair professionally and also studying Marketing/Advertising and Communications at Wayne State University in Midtown Detroit. You can expect a relaxing experience using quality products in natural hair care during your appointment, and know that you have entrusted only the best to nurture and style your strands.
