Keyshia Ka’oir (formerly known as Keyshia Dior) is a model, actress, stylist, & entrepreneur extraordinaire. She is the owner, CEO and creative force of KA`OIR Cosmetics, a company that she started in 2011. Her cosmetic line embodies everything that she is; it’s bright, young, and vibrant as demonstrated in the KA`OIR commercial that aired nationwide on major cable channels, that include MTV, VH1, E!, BET, Bravo and Style. She recently changed her name to Keyshia Ka’oir to represent her brand at all times. Keyshia “stands out from the rest”, and it is this unique ability that has made her success so impressive. She’s not afraid to be herself and she’s definitely not afraid to go after her goals.
This Miami native, with Jamaican roots, is best known for her starring role as “Lisa”, the jealous ex-wife in Timbaland’s mini-movie/ video, “Say Something” featuring the international music superstar, Drake. Since then, Keyshia has been featured in countless music videos with top recording artists. She’s graced the covers of several magazines, sold in stores nationwide and she has made countless appearances all over the country.
Her personality and drive cannot be confined to just one thing and she continues to defy expectations. She has become a very well-known personality in a very short period of time but she is not new to the industry. As a celebrity stylist, Keyshia worked with many well-known artists, athletes and models over the years.
Keyshia uses every experience as a learning opportunity for both personal and professional growth. Her main focus today is expanding the KA`OIR brand. As part of her marketing strategy, she recently collaborated with platinum selling recording artist, Trina, who is currently endorsing KA`OIR . Keyshia created a lipstick color specifically for Trina called “Neon Rockstarr” and the fans are loving it!
Her growing success gave her a platform to reach out to young girls all over the world. She is very passionate about “giving back” and sharing her blessings. Keyshia has spoken on several panels about maintaining self-esteem, integrity and knowing what’s important… in an industry that can be very challenging. She is adamant about staying true to herself and not compromising any of her values for the sake of fame. This very fact has made her meteoric rise very commendable. She is outspoken and confident and faces challenges head on. With over 100k followers on twitter and facebook, she consistently encourages and connects with her strong base of supporters, also known as “KA`OIR Dolls”. There is no doubt that this “Mohawk haired” beauty is beautiful and talented, but it’s her warm personality that keeps her fans devoted to her.
With the success of her KA`OIR Cosmetics line, Keyshia wanted to ensure that she continues to make a difference. Charitable causes are very important to her so she created a lipstick color called “Survivor” in honor of breast cancer awareness. A percentage of all proceeds will be donated to the “Susan G. Komen for the Cure Miami/Ft. Lauderdale Affiliate”. This is a cause that is near and dear to her heart and it is her hope that she will encourage others to join the fight for a cure for breast cancer.
Keyshia Ka’oir is a name that you want to keep an eye on. She is hot, multi-dimensional and is poised for greatness.
