If This Crown Could Talk


Mar 31, 2020

Akela Douglas is a Sacramento native and graduate of California State University Sacramento with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Finance. She is currently a professional hairstylist and has created beautiful looks for numerous brides, models, hair shows, music videos, magazines, and even New York fashion week. In 2014 Akela relocated to San Francisco to expand her career. It paid off because in July 2017 she opened her own salon in the Lower Haight neighborhood of San Francisco and last October opened Akela’s Hair Studio in the Marina. She also travels throughout the country as a Brand Educator for world renowned Wella Haircolor Company. 
 
As an adult Akela decided to revisit her love of pageantry. She was crowned Ms. California World 2019, and then went on to win the Ms US World Pageant last November. She is also the first African American woman to win this title!  During her reign she will travel the country promoting her social platform: “The Importance of Mentoring and Encouraging Women into Leadership.”  She was inspired to choose this platform from her experience with Big Brothers Big Sisters as “Big” to Catherine a 14 year old straight A student in the East Bay.
