Community Highlights: Meet Izabela Lachowicz of Nano Shape of Beauty

Today we’d like to introduce you to Izabela Lachowicz. 

Hi Izabela, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
My name is Izabela Lachowicz originally from Poland. As a child, I dreamed of studying in Beauty School, but her mom had different plans for her and urged her to seek a career in accounting. 

After University, I began working as an office accountant but learned quickly that it was not for her. Two months later, she enrolled back in school and began to study at University in Zielona Góra. After 3 years, I graduated with a degree in social work and psychology and immediately started working as a psychologist. 

A couple years later, I advanced to Director at a local private school but still felt a disconnect in my work. Recalling my childhood dream, I began taking courses in nails and lashes. 

While training in the beauty industry as often as possible, I began to work in my husband’s construction and demolition company. In 2000, our company became larger than ever, so we decided to further our business education in order to help my husband. I enrolled in the University of Nottingham in England and later graduated with an Executive Master of Business Administration. 

Our company grew to over 100 employees in 2009—all working in Poland, Germany, and England. 

The success of our construction company allowed me to open my own spa, and in my free time, I continued my adventure with beauty training. I completed training in permanent makeup in several different schools—all in Poland and the Ukraine. 

In 2016, I found myself eager for change and decided to travel to the USA to check out its beauty industry. Upon visiting, I was surprised to learn how behind the US beauty market was compared to Europe. I recognized the opportunity to bring the methods she had learned in Europe and teach people in the US how to achieve permanent makeup results that were beautiful yet natural looking with techniques the US had never seen before. 

In 2017, me and my family moved to the US. I pursued and achieved my licensing as a tattoo artist and reached my cosmetology certification as a Full Specialist. Shortly after, I decided to use the skills and knowledge from the past 10 years of work to create an Academy In the USA —an Academy that brings the most current solutions from Europe. 

Now Our Academy is big company with many great trainings for estheticians and cosmetologists. We have also online store with all cosmetics for treatments we teach. Now we starting new business in home decor industry and growing step by step our beauty business! 

We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
The most difficult for me was language since is my second language, and when I moved to US it was very basic was difficult to start with students, even clients to teach or offer services. Step by step my English is better, and now even if I still make language mistakes is much easier, and I can communicate with my clients without problems. 

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
Nano Shape of Beauty is like my child. Company was created in 2017, and when I moved to US, I started to work to grow it and show my clients “different” beauty. I mean different services, quality, products, methods for skin care. My academy was created from love to beauty. To find how to help clients to keep their youth. No, we teach more than 20 different treatments and still offer something new. 

Have you learned any interesting or important lessons due to the Covid-19 Crisis?
Yes. Definitely Covid-19 show me how to learn students online. Since we have a lot of time spent in home, I created with my team online platform where we have now available many online trainings. These are recorded videos with manual also consent forms and all instruction how to do each treatment with unlimited access to trainings. Each student can learn from any place or anytime they want.
