La Curcio is The Ultimate Brand. A skin and beauty company offering luxurious and conscience products with Superior Results. – Jaimie Hilfiger – Model, Fashion & Beauty Icon, La Curcio Spokesmodel.
I believe that every single one of us is truly beautiful in our own distinctive way and I set out to celebrate and enhance this beauty with an exquisite skincare range.
I am a strong believer that we are all born with unique gifts that are as diverse as each of us and this led me to a lifelong pursuit of developing my own Philosophies & Theories on how to Create & Maintain a healthier more significant youthfulness.
I’ve always been aware since my teens that our generation would spearhead both length and quality of life like never seen before.
I just knew I had to be an intricate part of the process and contribute to the quality of life. My passion was to become an expert and one of the best in my field which helped shape my short and long term goals and this has been a dream come true. I am ‘My Brand’ and that excites me as I truly believe that we’re not getting older, just better. If we can look and feel great at any age, the number just doesn’t matter.
Just start. Anywhere. Follow your primary interest firstly and see where that leads you. Do it your way. Experience working with or for brands that resonate with you to get a feel for your primary fit and become the BEST, period.
Regardless of where you start, if you’re truly committed with laser focus, success will happen.
I started in Skincare & Makeup, followed by Health & Fitness and Nursing & Healthcare for 13 years. I then attended College for Skincare & Makeup, started my own business with Skin & Body Care services along with retailing my very own brand of Skin & Body Care products.
I made a simple plan to start small and felt I had a lifetime in front of me to accomplish my goals. I purchased equipment, chose a perfect location to begin and rented space in a full service salon to get the hands on experience I needed and immediately became involved in retailing my own skincare products.
During that period, I was also a contributing Health & Beauty writer for the International Dermascope Magazine which lead me to develop an exclusive Skin, Cosmetic, Medical & Wellness Spa Centre.
Whilst all this happening, Lancôme also approached me to work at their Beauty Institute which would have been a wonderful opportunity, but something kept telling me to do my own thing and I decided to listen.
Give everything you feel a pull towards a go as you never know where it will lead you. I went from writing my own Skincare Column for our City Newspaper, to launching an Ultimate Cutting Edge Beauty Collection. Anything is possible!
Yes, it was frightening… but I just did it anyway!
I had my own ideas, my own vision, philosophies and theories. Who else would give me free reign to grow exponentially and evolve my concept… ultimately it would be me so I started straight out of school.
I was thrilled and quite frozen at the thought of taking on the responsibility of starting and developing my own brick and mortar full service and retail business especially as a single mum. I suspected it wouldn’t be for the faint of heart but again, I did it anyway.
A burning passion and desire to create your vision really is the answer.
Some people will laugh, put you down, tell you you’re doing it all wrong. You don’t need their approval or their input, if you’re laser focused with a clear vision and know in your heart it’s right for you, it will all work out.
Always. Always. Always listen to your instincts no matter what. If you’re about to make an important decision about anything regarding your business or personal life for that matter, take a huge step back, take your time and listen to yourself. Try to keep in mind that if:
- It doesn’t feel right it’s probably not in your best interest.
- It’s not coming together, don’t force it to happen as there’s probably a good reason for it. Just let it go.
- You find yourself caring majority of the weight, that you share the responsibility with your team.
Ultimately, complete freedom in every way with unlimited potential for growth if you choose to do the work. Yes, that does come with tremendous responsibilities, but that’s part of the deal and it’s worth it. The feeling of creating and accomplishing something of tremendous value is priceless regardless of the size or reach.
Developing a great and well trusted inner circle of people. For me I would have to say the integrity of my staff at the heart of who they really are as people are the most important traits I look for and more so than their level of skill.
Staff integrity is definitely more important than skill.
Skills can be taught and developed. Having the right people who share the same vision and enthusiasm on your team is key. As well their level of commitment to Work, Yourself & the Brand to ensure the highest levels of Quality, Quality, Quality.
COCO CHANEL. She has been my idol since I was a young girl. Through the roughest of global times she has stood the test of time. A single woman with an incredibly unique vision, style, and determination… she did it all her way. Her classic style continues to be legendary.
Honestly, I’ve pretty much been on my own throughout this entrepreneurial process. Thankfully, times have changed and there is so much support available today for those seeking to start a business and that’s great to see. The key beliefs that I lived by during my journey and would like to share are:
- Think creatively.
- Make a difference.
- Explore all interests to find your niche.
- Create something of tremendous value.
- It’s a balance not a race to have it all.
- Dedicate yourself to the ultimate benefit of others.
- Always. Always. Always help others reach their dreams.
What Does It Take
Courage and Conviction. The courage to start up and the conviction to get back up when you make mistakes and have defeats. You must always be able to re-commit to Yourself, the Goal and the Dream.
And if the risks are too great or you’re not completely certain about the investment either personally or financially, make sure you’re sure. Always sum up the worst case scenario to ensure you are aware of all possible outcomes.
The ability to ride the waves personally and professionally. That is what separates those who are getting by and those who succeed. – Jacki Curcio
Develop a superb Website and Market it.
- Network where you can meet different media & business people.
- Show up, be a stand out in every way and every day. I mean personally.
- Get connected with other businesses and create cross promotions.
- Get involved in relevant giveaways to build your client base and create a wider brand awareness.
- Connect with Bloggers and if you can write start your own Blog.
- Attend industry events and connect with all media platforms.
- Collaborate with other businesses who receive high press coverage.
- Charity Events are always great as it’s an opportunity to contribute and promote your products and services.
- Stay connected with magazine editors should any relevant features or promotions pop up.
Everything! Every detail needs to clearly state what your products and company stand for, especially for a global brand like La Curcio. It all needs to communicate your story in a clear and concise way.
Everything! Meaning… Your Spokesmodel, Products, Performance, Packaging, Story, etc.

Choosing ‘The Face’
Yes, let me share why I chose Ms. Jaimie Hilfiger as the Face and Spokesmodel for La Curcio.
Jaimie’s lifestyle and experience with Fashion & Beauty has given her a unique insight, understanding and appreciation of skincare that fits perfectly with the LA CURCIO Brand Message. We’re both strong believers in Improving, Enhancing, Maintaining, Preventing and Preserving your unique beauty for a lifetime.
Jaimie Hilfiger is a powerful and soft woman all at the same time… love her essence! – Jacki Curcio
Jaimie is also the perfect Brand Ambassador as she’s a great representation of her generation, women at a similar stage in their life that embody the same interests and concerns.
It was clear from our first chat and meeting that we were both in complete sync. We had a genuine and mutual understanding of one another’s vision and exactly what we wanted to accomplish with the collection.
A natural beauty in every sense Jaimie exemplifies what I feel is OUR ideal Beauty Brand Spokesmodel and Icon. A Beautiful Heart and Soul, Magnificent Mind, Savvy, Kind and Truly Caring in Every Way.
Jaimie Hilfiger – The Face
Coming from the world of modelling has changed her relationship with skincare. Jaimie Hilfiger the American heiress, socialite, model and entrepreneur with the famous family name is forging her own path in beauty, fashion and business.
Not resting on her laurels and a modelling career that started at a young age, the niece of American fashion icon Tommy Hilfiger, armed with a bachelor’s degree who pursued modelling with the intent of more than walking runways and sitting for photographers in mind — has had her eye on fashion and beauty beyond the runway and is now set to make her own mark in the industry.
Her long time experience sitting in makeup chairs was an education on the value of good skincare which also led to a deeper understanding of products and their effects on the skin. After years of trial and error, Jaimie has finally found the perfect skincare products which she has personally had a hand in perfecting and shares her beauty secrets with women all around world with her luxury skincare collection the JH Collection by La Curcio.
What inspired the partnership with La Curcio?
I wanted to partner with a company that fit everyone’s skincare needs. It’s a great time to start with La Curcio. Whether you’re 20 or 70, you will see results and cumulative effects.
What do you wish people knew about taking care of their skin?
I wish that people knew about the harmful chemicals and “fragrances” that many companies add to their products and were more concerned about the negative effects this causes in later years.
What is your vision and plan for your La Curcio line?
Skincare is constantly evolving. That’s the beauty of it. My concept is to Introduce specialty luxury products that are functional. Our combined ideas are endless with many new products coming soon.
