About Mackenzie Davis

Not to be confused with the star of Halt and Catch Fire, Mackenzie Davis, who goes by @raddestredhead on, is more than just a lip syncer with strawberry blonde locks. She is a 14-year-old dancer, beauty enthusiast, and social media star, with popular YouTube, YouNow, and accounts. As a regular muser, with over 3M fans, she shows off her significant dance skills, choreographing and freestyling moves to songs like Kanye West’s “Fade” and Shane Harper’s “See You Around,” getting featured on the app plenty of times along the way. On her YouTube channel, she posts dance and makeup tutorials, along with tips and tricks showing other musers “HOW TO GET FEATURED ON MUSICAL.LY”—something she knows a lot about.
