On Wednesday, February 1, 2012 Keyshia Ka’oir decided to announce via UStream to her “Twitterdolls” and Ka’oir Cosmetics customers and supporters of such change.

She ended the UStream with this statement:

“I have officially changed my name from Keyshia Dior to Keyshia Ka’oir. The continuous success of Ka’oir Cosmetics has truly been such a blessing and growth as the role model I envision to be in our young women today and tomorrow, I am excited to be able to represent the brand to my fullest capability. With such growth comes sacrifice, so I decided to put ‘Keyshia Dior’ the urban video model to rest successfully and launch ‘Keyshia Ka’oir’ to continue the expansion of my imprint. Starting off in the industry with an accolade of being one of the most elusive video models was a blessing, but this was only meant to be my beginning in my career. I want the world to know that Keyshia Ka’oir is Ka’oir Cosmetics. Ka’oir Cosmetics embodies everything a confident woman stands for: we are unique, bold, fresh, fun, seductive, innovative and vibrant in all that we do. Ka’oir Cosmetics represents a lifestyle of beauty, determination and being focused to be successful. As Ka’oir Doll, we are passionate about being at our best at all times while setting ourselves apart from the rest at the same time.

“I am Keyshia Ka’oir. Beautiful is Ka’oir.”
