At the start of the pandemic in 2020, Kris Collins, now known as KallMeKris on TikTok, started creating content on the app to fill her time while stuck at home.
Kris worked as a hairdresser and a certified lash technician in Abbotsford, British Columbia, but had to close up because of the lockdown.
Her younger brother convinced her to download TikTok and after watching videos for a few days, she decided she’d create content of her own.
Inspired by her own family, she started to pretend to be her mom in videos, which gained her a lot of attention on the app.
Her very first video poked fun at herself for being unemployed and living with her parents. And from then on, she posted a new video every day.
Collins has a variety of characters she’s created, characters that now have a following among her many fans. She’s created a whole series on the app called “What I imagine it’s like to have a toddler,” and has curated over 1,000 videos in total.
