Meet Jaclyn Engelbrecht.
Jaclyn Engelbrecht thrives in the world of beauty. She is the owner of Nov-U and two Kryolan Make-Up stores in
Bloemfontein. But she’s cracking even more ceilings in the world of beauty and entrepreneurship.
Jaclyn grew up in Klerksdorp and moved to Bloemfontein in 2007 to study Somatology at the CUT. Her Nov-U business supplies beauty salons, spas and tertiary institutes with beauty products, aesthetic machines and equipment. She also provides education in all these areas. While owning and managing two Kryolan Make-Up stores, she is also soon starting a beauty consulting business aimed at upskilling beauty business owners.
The beauty factor
“My vision and mission come down to the saying ‘beauty inspires change’. I love being able to live out that vision within an industry I’m passionate about. Being able to educate my clients on our incredible brands – Anesi, Depilive, Kryolan, CND, Crisnail, Balsan, Quadex and Hair-Ex-Pil – makes me happy.”
Consistency is key
Jaclyn believes in treating her competitors with respect and letting them drive her to do better. “Our strong suit is providing our clients with exceptional support in the form of education, sales skills, hosting workshops and promotions to help them further their sales to their clients.
Learn from this…
Jaclyn has learnt many lessons throughout her career as an entrepreneur. They are: “Find a mentor – someone who will not only motivate you but someone who will have the guts to tell you when you are wrong. And avoid unnecessary debt – start small and do only what you can afford. Then build on that.”
Go-to beauty secret
“Exfoliate and hydrate! I love Anesi’s Harmonie Gommage, an enzyme exfoliator. Your skin cannot glow and be smooth if it has a layer of dead skin cells.”
