Kelsey Johnson

Founder & CEO, Kinky Kaps, LLC


Kelsey Johnson has always had a problem fitting her long braids into a traditional shower cap. She often used plastic bags, pieces of clothing and countless hairpins just to keep them from getting wet. Kinky Kaps, LLC aims to provide new, innovative hair accessories designed for women of color, and its debut product is The Shower Turban, a reusable shower cap for braids. Inspired by NFTE’s business course to rekindle confidence in herself, Kelsey is moved by the community and support she has discovered with her business.  Kelsey is currently in her second year at Santa Monica College, where she will receive her AA before transfering to Howard University.
