A true passion for hair life and harmony.


Niwa K. was founded by Niwa Kapumbu who is a singlemother of 3 New Yorker, raised in France with Congolese parents who are beauty-supply shop owners. Her life as an african-american mother made her realize how challenging getting her done hair could be.

She first had to make sure child care was in place, then she would deal with different kind of unprofessionalism often found in salons, next she will spend timewaiting and and hours sitting in an unfriendly environmment but the details that would hurt her the most was the lack of knowledge and true care for ethnic hair. So her own need for quality, convenience and professionalism turned into a business idea.

In 2014 Niwa decided to attend Empire Beauty School and obtain her cosmetology license to add to her B.S. in Advertising and Marketing Communications. She was well aware of the current trend of more and more women caring for their natural hair with protective style as opposed to relying on chemical processing. She saw an opportunity for a braiding service . She came to realize that the cultural difference between the clients and the braiders who were mostly Africans didn't come from a lack of care but more so a lack of knowledge. She knew that her unique African and African-American background gave her an edge to communicate, educate and team-up with la creme de la creme braiders in the industry.

 This year she decided to launched Niwa K. Express Braiding to respond to the need of some many active women with ethnic hair. Though coily hair style tend to be very tedious, in our days and age many of them can be done watching tutorials, unfortunately most of them take time and frustration to learn before you succeed .  Time is a terrible thing to waste ! Niwa K. mission is to make women life easier by providing an innovative to achieve your desired styles faster and better in the comfort of your home.
