Like many social media platforms today, TikTok is making people famous who would otherwise likely remain unknown their entire lives. Like YouTube, but on a smaller, yet somehow more elaborate scale, the site allows amateurs to create their own videos, post them, and share them with the world. Of course, the number of ‘likes’ and ‘followers’ one gets will determine popularity, earnings, and establish a level of fame, if the stats are high enough. The site is mostly popular among teens and young adults, but isn’t limited to their use only.
Holly H is a TikTok user who has managed to gain a bit of renown for herself through her use of this app. While she got her start on Vine, another video app, she went on to use TikTok, formerly known as ‘musical.ly’. The change proved to be a wise move, gaining her more than 16 million fans. But fame today isn’t like that of yesterday, when people actually got where they were through blood, sweat, and tears; success seemingly happens overnight, and one result is that the ‘celebrity’ may only technically be famous with a very specific group of people. Therefore, many out there may not have any clue who the person is, while others know all about her. Holly H is one such example. It’s not like she is a television regular, or a music star whose albums are played on the radio nationwide.
So, in an effort to familiarize more people with this girl, whom you may have heard about in passing but have no clue about when it comes to her life or ‘accomplishments’, we have put together a ’10 Things’ list all about her. It’s featured below, and the facts listed will give you a much better idea who Holly H is and what she is ‘famous’ for. Whether you’re a fan or an innocent bystander, you’ll soon have a much clearer picture of this teen sensation by the end of this piece. Keep reading to discover:

6. Zodiac and Star Sign Traits
Holly was born on October 17, which makes her a Libra. Libra women are said to be full of passion, have an active social life, and exude class through their personality and mannerisms. They are sexy in their own unique way, standing out from others with a sexuality that isn’t common to anyone else. They are charming, attractive, and they love being female, and it shows. Being born in 1996 means that she is a child of the Year of the Rat. Children born in Rat years tend to be collectors, and they are creators of shrines to things they love or want to pay tribute to. They are usually on top of things habitually, including their finances, which they are normally quite thrifty with. Overall, children born in Rat years have a very positive attitude about life in general.
7. Personal Life
At the current time the 23-year-old Internet sensation is not married, though she does look forward to tying the knot with someone someday; she also has no children at this point in her life. While she has been known to post photos with an unknown male on her Instagram account, whether or not she has an exclusive boyfriend has not been revealed. According to Healthy Celeb, Holly prefers to not discuss her love life, dating status, or anything else regarding any potential relationship she may be in. She likes to keep her private life on the down low.
8. The Real Deal
Most every photo and video seen by fans show Holly as a brunette. Is this her real hair color? Well, sources say that while the person is Holly, the darker hair color her fans are used to seeing her with is not legitimate. Holly’s natural color is really blonde, but she has worn the darker colored locks for some time, a fact which fans are mostly unaware of.
9. Net Worth
Holly has been an active celebrity presence on the Internet since 2015, and while she was accepted to two different colleges after high school graduation, she chose to set her focus on a career online. It has paid off for her, fortunately, proving that she made the right decision, for the time being, at least. While one source, Net Worth Leaks states that she is currently worth around $2 million, there are a couple of other sources which claim that he multiple professional projects have brought her net worth to between $500k and $600k to date. Since she has only been in the public eye for four years, we are more apt to estimate in agreement with the latter approximations.
10. Other Projects and Future Plans
Holly doesn’t just make videos for Internet and social media fan viewing, she has a couple other irons in the fire as well. She sells merchandise promoting herself, which serves as a huge marketing tool that pushes her career successfully along, and she has also worked with the famous British television company BBC. Together, Holly and the broadcasting company put together a ‘muser’ battle which was televised live in 2017. The event, which she collaborated openly with BBC to make happen, was dedicated to some of the most followed and popular Musical.ly users at the time, and was a success. She will continue to focus on all these projects, and probably many more, should her popularity continue to grow, with the passage of time.
