Today’s Red Lips Fashionista of the week is Heather Waite out of Charlotte, NC.


I love doing these features, because it allows the readers, myself included, to learn so much more about our Sisters and Brothers of the Leaf on a more personal level, it also provides details about the cigar lifestyle, and it informs us about their cigar journey, which could be very similar to yours, so it’s always refreshing to hear others first experiences!

Heather has definitely been establishing herself in the “Cigar Community,” by building the bridges, developing groups, and forming relationships with the community. Especially, in the Charlotte, NC area!


Therefore, I was shocked when she responded back to this interview that she’s only been smoking cigars for about a year. Heather is involved in so much that’s cigar related, so I never assumed that she was a novice (beginner) to smoking cigars, but definitely not a stranger to the culture.

Heather became interested in cigars because she formerly worked at Secret Society, which was a pretty elite cigar lounge in Charlotte, NC. However, it has recently turned into a hookah lounge, I’ve heard, but per the websites from Google, it’s listed as permanently closed for business.  At the time, when Heather was working there, she became inspired because she met a great group of females that she began hanging out with. And, one night as they were all out, they questioned Heather about her lack of commitment to smoking cigars, since she worked at a lounge, they encouraged her to learn how to smoke. And, this started her cigar journey.


Heather is still learning her palate, which she says she’s taking “baby steps,” but to smoke cigars, you don’t necessarily have to identify this so soon or immediately, it’s okay if you gradually work into this level of expertise. Heather likes to pair her cigars with wine and she loves Cabernet Sauvignon would be her drink of choice.

Also, Heather is an Event Manager with The Cigar Circle. The Cigar Circle is a group of diffusely organized people or organizations striving toward a common goal, supporting each other in the society and community while enjoying a cigar!


Heather was just recently approved as a Distinguished Ruffin member, which they focus on the people by building relationships in social interaction, along with focusing on places to see, eat at, and explore that’s related to cigars, libations, and accommodating the cigar lifestyle and culture.

And, the resume keeps growing for Heather, as she’s a “Brand Ambassador” for Hiram and Solomon Cigars.


Heather is our Red Lips Fashionista of the week because of her dedication and loyalty at building these relationships between the cigar connoisseur, in a group form and being a branch by extending her services that’s become a true passion for her, by networking and through enjoying cigars!
