Growing up spending time in her mom’s salon in Harlem, Diarrha N’Diaye learned a lot. From her mother’s business, started after her parents immigrated from Senegal with little knowledge of English, Diarrha learned about hard work and the entrepreneurial spirit. But what made a lasting impression was the atmosphere her mother cultivated: one of welcome, of warmth, to come-as-you-are and leave feeling beautiful.
Diarrha knew she wanted to create that experience for more people, and an internship with Rebecca Minkoff kicked off her career in beauty and fashion. Now, as things come full circle, Rebecca is an investor in Ami Colé, Diarrha’s multipurpose, non-toxic, no-fuss line of makeup and skin care products beautifully designed as a safe space to celebrate melanin-rich skin.
Thanks for listening! Don't forget to order Rebecca's new book, Fearless: The New Rules for Unlocking Creativity, Courage, and Success.
