Leah Chavie: How to Live Your Brand by Little Jack Marketing

Once you’ve devised a great brand for your small business, you need to go into action mode and spread that message as best as you can to give your small business a fighting chance at success. When marketing guru’s worldwide say “live your brand”, we get what they mean is “care about your brand”. Few people actually undertake the task of living their brand (when they do they tend to be very successful). Leah Chavie is one of those people.

Of course, living your brand is easier when you’re the owner of a luxury skincare boutique. Leah lives her brand by showing her face around town, socializing with power players, and generally looking fabulous all around. She puts care into her appearance, and it shows. Whenever anyone sees her or her friends looking good around town, that is living proof of her brand. She is literally representative of her own customer base: outgoing, fun-loving people who work hard and play harder.
Leah started her skincare boutique in 2010, after 20+ years experience in the makeup artist industry. Since its opening, Leah Chavie Skincare has been a mainstay of Chicago’s luxury scene.

The uniqueness of the Leah Chavie brand, according to the woman herself, stems from exclusivity. Product choices are very specific, credible, and align with the the high end brand appeal. Her belief in always growing carries on to her team, who are encouraged to get additional education about the latest skincare methods. In the world of luxury spas, where trends come and go with the seasons, it’s important to stay on the cutting edge and offer the latest technologies. That is why Leah’s boutique features the detoxing body wrap that comes from Spain, and reportedly burns up to 1800 calories per treatment! That is also why she is the exclusive provider of CryoStem Cell Therapy facials (if it sounds rejuvenating, that’s because it is) in all of Chicago.

Despite having the technological upper hand over other spas, Leah instists that skincare is above all a business of personal connections. “I have traveled the world in search of beauty and healthcare and have discovered one thing:”, she says, ”that is it not the items or the treatments offered, it is the people who are there at the salon providing the care.”

Asked about how she communicates her unique brand to the world Leah stresses word of mouth, asking for referrals, and not being afraid to ask for the job. Even today, after all her success, Leah builds contacts everywhere she goes. And she never forgets to ask for the job or that extra referral.

When we asked her how she does it, Leah shrugs it off: “You have to be your brand — always.”

But one thing that too often gets the short end of the stick? Your skin! Whether your dark past of skincare malnourishment includes conveniently “forgetting” the SPF 30 and applying Banana Boat’s SPF Zero Dark Tanning Oil, sporting second day eyeliner (and bronzer) at many a weekend brunch or the classic move of applying make-up to hit the sheets with the new beau, we’ve all been there and we’re all guilty.

LUXLYFE visits Leah Chavie Before Jetting Off

Original posted LUXLYFE April 5th, 2013

Hello cyber friends! Before I jetted off to Japan I spent a few days in Chicago frolicking around, seeing friends, eating delish food and celebrating my 3 year wedding anniversary (more on that coming soon!). In order to prep my skin for a fabulous few days in Chi-town I visited my favorite skin guru, Leah Chavie. I met Leah several years ago and every time I visit the windy city, I try and squeeze in a visit with her. When it comes to serious skin rejuvenation, Leah is my absolute go-to. She has over 20 years of experience  making people pretty and I put full faith in to her magical hands and awesome equipment.  What I particularly love about Leah is that she customizes each treatment based on what I need.  No matter what kind of condition my face is in when I walk through the door, it is always glowing, magical and radiant when I leave. #YES

Several of you know that when it comes to spa services and beauty in general, I am adventures. Minus injections, (I’ll let you know when that day comes!) I’m pretty open to anything from the exotic, (currently scouring Japan for a nightingale dropping facial)  to lasers, to live stem cells (aka cow fetuses) and in the name of beauty.

In the video below you will see Leah giving me a blend of Dermaplaning, Cutera Laser lovin and a Cryostem facial. Check it out.
