Nicole TV Wiki Bio
Kayla Nicole Jones – aka Nicole TV – was born in Montgomery, Alabama USA, on 26 May 2001 – her zodiac sign is Gemini, and she holds American nationality. She’s a YouTuber, social media star and a singer, who became famous after her YouTube video “Ponytail Tutorial” went viral in May 2015.
Family and early life
Nicole was raised solely by her mother; when she was in 5th grade, they moved from to Sylacauga, Alabama, where according to Nicole, growing up in there was difficult, as the town is very secluded, and was riddled with racism. Her home life wasn’t perfect either, as her mother often struggled to pay bills and to make the ends meet.
As a teenager, Nicole found solace in the Internet culture, and started making YouTube videos, eventually becoming the next social media sensation. After matriculating from a local high school in 2019, she moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where she now resides with her fiancée and their son.
Nicole TV YouTube channel
Nicole launched her YouTube channel in December 2014, uploading her first video entitled “When someone has an ugly baby” in January the following year. Two months later, she posted her “Ponytail Tutorial” video, a parody of videos made by popular beauty gurus. It quickly gained traction on Twitter and Vine too, launching the young YouTuber into stardom, and earning her a ‘meme’ status.
Nicole continued uploading short, comedic skits, such as “Kylie Jenner Lip Tutorial”, “How To Get A Boyfriend” and “How to be on FLEEK” onto her channel.
In 2018, Nicole decided to make YouTube her full-time career, and started posting longer videos, including vlogs, shopping hauls and genuine beauty tutorials. Her popularity on the platform grew even more, as her fans got a chance to observe her charisma and sense of humor in a different video format, and her channel soon hit the million subscribers milestone.
Nicole went viral once again in September 2019, when an insert from one of her videos, showing her looking up and down was posted on Twitter, under the caption ‘When she don’t look like what she looks like on Instagram’.
It gained over 660,000 likes in only five days, prompting other Twitter users to make their own captions for the video.
As of October 2021, Nicole’s YouTube channel numbers more than 5.4 million subscribers, and over 335 million views. Her most popular video is still “Ponytail Tutorial”, which has been watched over 25 million times, while her other videos which have over 10 million views are more recent, such as the music video for “Move Like A Snake”, and her labor vlog.

Her first song to go viral was “EDIBLE”, which gained over five million views on YouTube in just a few weeks of its release.
In December 2019, Nicole released her first music video, for “Move Like A Snake”, which was filmed in a high school in Atlanta. A few days later, Nicole surprised her fans by releasing her first album, entitled “Breaking Heartbreak” and produced by Deraj Global, featuring six new songs.
