A few years ago, Nilaja was working at Superstar Hair and Wigs, a Black-owned studio where different actors would frequent. She would style her own hair so well that customers would inquire as to if she offered services of her own. This led to Nilaja solidifying her own clientele and expanding her business. She, along with her assistant Alexis, travels to provide services as traveling stylists for her business Braided Glory. Within her business, she also created and sells her own products; a loc extension line. Moxxi Loxx was launched about two years ago which creates human and synthetic locs. These locs are reusable and or can be installed and left permanently.
Inspired by her father, who was also an artist that sculpts and carves wood, Nilaja she has decided that she wants to start to sell her pieces as well. She has many people inquiring to purchase, and she wants to display them in upcoming showcases in museums. A marketing strategy to execute these moves is currently in the works.
Nilaja Darling will be releasing her Freshman EP of seven songs October 29th of this year. There will also be video visuals dropped for her previously released single titled Tonic. She’s excited for her fans and supporters to see what she has up her sleeve from singing, to cosmetics and beauty, to creating art. Nilaja plans to do it all. Her ultimate goal with her music however, is to have and keep a positive uplifting sound so that she can remain realistic and relatable to her supporters.
