Alicia Shapira Featured on Shoutout Miami

We had the good fortune of connecting with Alicia Shapira and we’ve shared our conversation below.

  Hi Alicia, other than deciding to work for yourself, what else do you think played a pivotal role in your story? my son What should our readers know about your business? I’m Alicia Shapira the founder of New Image Beauty Bar. I am known for being the first in the US to offer Brazilian Stretch Mark and Scar Camouflage, Scar and Under Eye Lightening Treatment. I specialize in an FDA-approved Vitamin Scar Lightening Treatment that I created and perfected through countless hours of researching my techniques. I am definitely proud of being able to offer my clients treatments that truly boost their self-esteem, for themselves!

The path to my career was full of twists and turns. I actually started out as a full-time Speech Pathologist/Cognitive Trainer with two of my very own schools that I owned and operated. I enjoyed every minute with my patients at the time, but I just kept dreaming of a career change into the cosmetic industry. They say you can change your career at least 3 times in your life, the thought to have to go back to school and start over was very scary but also extremely exciting!

Once I graduated Esthetician School, I knew I was ready to start doing Permanent Makeup and open my own business immediately. I knew when I put that permanent makeup pen to my first client’s face, I had made the right decision and followed my passion. I have never looked back since!   New Image Beauty Bar has given me the opportunity to reach so many clients from all over the world. Our services are so unique that they capture the attention of many followers on social media, we’ve even gone viral with over 3.6 Million views on TikTok!

Lip Shading is a permanent makeup treatment that leaves your lips with a permanent lip shade.   "Lip shading is a really amazing and fun procedure, because the clients are also involved," says Alicia. For this treatment, Alicia and her clients work together to choose the perfect lip shade! Different factors go into place, when choosing a lip shade. First, Alicia has her clients bring in their favorite lipstick, or photo of their favorite lip color. Then Alicia will give a few different options based on the clients hair color, eye color and skin color. It's a really fun process that really gives the client some creativity control as well! Alicia really loves lip shading because she finds it very relaxing and fulfilling. A lot of permanent makeup artist do not like to perform lip shading, because it is time consuming and a difficult procedure to master. After years and years of experience in the permanent makeup industry, Alicia has mastered lip shading and finds it to be so rewarding. "People are always happy knowing they can wakeup with no makeup on their lips, they can go shower, swim and they have something that makes them feel vibrant and beautiful all the time," said Alicia Shapira.  

A Bit About Lip Shading

Lip shading has become one of the most popular forms of permanent makeup and we know why! Results with an experienced permanent makeup artist can be beautiful and leave people feeling more confident and in love with their lips. The process takes a couple of hours, but results can last 5 years or more!

Alicia Shapira on Coral Springs Talk

This week Alicia Shapira was interviewed and featured on Coral Springs talk, by Selene Raj! Take a look below to read the full story, or visit here to see the original piece.

  By Selene Raj Alicia Shapira is no stranger to change— about seven years ago, she was a speech-language pathologist who decided she wanted to walk down a new career path. Today, she is an academy teacher and owner of New Image Beauty Bar. And, now, her beauty business has just undergone another change. She has moved to a new location in Coral Springs, the city where she grew up and lived in for almost three decades, before moving to Parkland. Previously located in the Target plaza on Wiles Road and US 441, New Image Beauty Bar moved in July to 7401 Wiles Rd in Suite #252 in the Whispering Woods Center—as Shapira sought a larger, more private space. New Image Beauty Bar offers a range of makeup, hair, body, and face services that include lash lift and tints, permanent makeup, hair simulation, and vitamin glow scar treatments. The beauty bar, as well as the academy Shapira runs, attracts clients and students from around the country and world, she said, especially because of their unique specializations. In addition to permanent makeup, fibroblast, and micro-needling, they also specialize in 3D areola repigmentation and Brazilian stretchmark and scar camouflaging. In fact, Shapira said she was proud to be the first person in the United States to be trained in the practice. Shapira learned to perform the procedure from its creator, Rodolpho Torres, from Brazil—now, she not only offers it to her clients but also trains others to do it. “People travel here from all over the world, from Singapore to Hawaii to the Netherlands, to travel and learn about [stretch mark camouflage],” she said. Despite her success, with the spread of the deadly COVID-19 pandemic, threatening lives, and livelihoods, many small businesses, including hers, felt the consequences. “It was very scary. I didn’t know if we were all going to make it,” said Shapira. But, she’s adjusted—and the beauty bar currently sees one client at a time and operates by appointment to allow for teaching at the academy when they aren’t seeing clients. Now, she spends her days evenly split between teaching and seeing clients. “Being a teacher in this industry and seeing others succeed because of me is very cool,” she said. Mentoring is important to her, as is building relationships with clients. She also offers 3D areola repigmentation, and eyebrows, to former breast cancer patients for free. A service that can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars, repigmentation is often the final step in breast reconstruction for those with breast cancer. Shapira is happy to offer it at no cost, and as her own father is currently battling stomach cancer, it’s more near and dear to her heart than ever. “In October alone, I did between five and ten for free,” she said. Whatever clients come in for, she loves that people often leaving feeling better than they did when they walked in, and she’s passionate about adding to their confidence.   Be Sure to check out more at Coral Springs talk.   Contact Alicia Shapira for more information: (954) 774-5087 alicia.newimagebeautybar@gmail.com 7401 Wiles Rd.
