Positive-body image advocate Chenese Lewis will be the mistress of ceremonies on the main stage of the Bronner Bros. International Beauty Show in New Orleans.
Lewis, a Baton Rouge native and resident, is a veteran hostess and MC whose career spans more than a decade nationally. She was selected to MC the Bronner Bros. show based on her known ability to engage audiences with her quick wit and relatable disposition. She has hosted major fashion and beauty events across the United States, including her 6-year run as host of the New Orleans Natural Hair Expo that takes place during Essence Music Festival. Lewis gained international attention in the early 2010s as a highly sought-after keynote speaker, expert commentator, and positive body image/self-esteem advocate. Through this platform, she has been featured as an expert on Dr. Phil, Huffington Post Live, E! News, Extra, People.com, USA Today, among other outlets.
“I am grateful and honored to have the opportunity to host the legendary Bronner Brothers International Beauty Show,” Lewis said. “This is a huge opportunity for me to not only expand my brand but to be a part of history, as this is the first year the event will be held outside of Atlanta in its 72 years of existence.”
Known as the “hairdressers fashion week,” the extremely popular beauty show, native to Atlanta, averages audiences of more than 35,000 bi-annually. It is the largest multicultural, multi-textural tradeshow in the United States, featuring more than 100 professional education classes, innovative workshops sessions, exciting evening entertainment, inspirational worship service, creative competitions, more than 300 exhibitors, celebrity guests, and much more.
