Beauty and Style Doyenne, Cherise B. is one of Atlanta’s most sought after image consultants and empowerment speakers. A licensed cosmetologist, The CEO & Founder of White Diamond Image Consulting (WDIC) has a natural gift for making others look and feel good from their interior to their exterior; of which, I can personally co-sign. Cherise was never felt quite finished with clients when they left with just their hair done, so having a unique style of her own and passion for beauty and fashion, her desire to assist clients with their image from head-to-toe was birthed.
In her capacity, Cherise serves loyal clientele from diverse backgrounds; including, but not limited to executives, musicians, radio/television personalities, entrepreneurs (including myself :-)), housewives and athletes. She is best known for her unique ability to educate her clients and provide them with everyday essentials to look, feel and express their personal and professional best. Her new mantra for WDIC, via The Diamond Life, is Look Good; Feel Good; Do Good!
Of special interest to Cherise are her community service affiliations with AICI – Association of Image Consulting International, Dress for Success, women recovering from domestic violence, cancer awareness, and youth advocacy.
The CEO Pundit™: Who inspires you?
Cherise:Women of diverse experiences and backgrounds inspire me. But the one who inspires me most is Sarah Breedlove (December 23, 1867 – May 25, 1919), known as Madam C.J. Walker. She was an American entrepreneur and philanthropist. She made her fortune by developing and marketing a successful line of beauty and hair products for black women under the company she founded, ; and at her death, she was considered to be the wealthiest African-American woman in America and known to be the first self-made female American millionaire.
I am so inspired by this amazing woman because she made it without all of the resources that we are privileged to experience today. She fought through slavery, poverty, was uneducated, and many other obstacles that I couldn’t fathom. If it were not for her, there would be no Oprah, Coretta Scott King, Barbara Walters, Cornelia Fort, Mary Lasker, Robin Roberts, and so many more to name…she initiated the beginning of what the beauty industry is today. She gave me hope.
The CEO Pundit™: What is your legacy?
Cherise: My legacy is my company White Diamond Image Consulting; the extension of the gift that God gave me to extend to the world. I am overjoyed every day to touch the lives of other women through my business and passion. I know the importance of looking and feeling your best. My job is to provide women with the tools and resources to look their best and feel their best, so that they can do their best in all of their endeavors. The power in a confident women is limitless. We rule the world!!!
Yes, we do, Cherise! Cheers to girls like you who RUN THE WORLD!
