Aisha Baron | Plastic Surgeon, Breast Body Beauty

Aisha Baron | Plastic Surgeon, Breast Body Beauty

July 29, 2019

Dr. Aisha Baron is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon in Marietta, GA. Known as the "BreastNBodyDoc" on Instagram, and one of the few African-American female plastic surgeons in the United States, she offers cosmetic surgery for the breast, body, face, and skin.

The Spelman College graduate, who joined the hit reality show, Atlanta Plastic on Lifetime in 2015, believes "there shouldn't be any shame or stigma in getting plastic surgery." "There's nothing wrong with working out AND seeking cosmetic enhancements. Just like you would get your hair styled or nails done at a salon, you can get micro-needling, fillers or other procedures done to feel like your most beautiful self -- just consider it a part of your beauty routine," says Baron. "Getting plastic surgery doesn't take away from the hard work you put in at the gym."

Take a listen as we discuss how she managed to launch her medical practice while keeping her wellness journey intact.

Melissa Butler | Founder and CEO, The Lip Bar

Melissa Butler | Founder and CEO, The Lip Bar

July 2, 2019

Detroit native Melissa Butler went from working on wall street to skillfully and strategically launching a start-up beauty brand, The Lip Bar, into a nationwide phenomenon.

When the Florida A & M University grad took her line of custom-made, vegan lipsticks on ABC’s “Shark Tank” in 2015, she was laughed out of the room. But the experience only further ignited her ambition to succeed. And it taught her an important lesson about persistence that would years later allow her to land The Lip Bar’s products on shelves at 142 Target stores across the country.

Take a listen as we discuss her journey from stocks and bonds to beauty and how she makes a healthy lifestyle a priority.

Christina M. Rice | Chief Experience Officer, OMNoire

Christina M. Rice | Chief Experience Officer, OMNoire

June 11, 2019

Christina M. Rice founded OMNoire from a need to create a safe space for women of color to share their stories and find a support system throughout their wellness journeys. Through workshops, events, and retreats, her platform empowers women to find wellness on their terms.

From launching a successful Nashville-based boutique straight out of undergrad to launching her PR firm LuxeLife Media in NYC, the serial entrepreneur turned to yoga to remedy her exhaustion. The Tennessee State University grad was so inspired by the practice that she began to work towards becoming an instructor. While on her certification journey, she felt isolated and lonely as the only woman of color in the room. "I started teaching classes, and I realized more and more Black women were seeking out my class. I realized there would be something special about creating spaces for women of color." And that's how OMNoire, a wellness social community for women of color, was born.

 

Listen in as Christina gives us the 411 on how she went from fashion to fitness and hasn't looked back.
