Check out our interview with entrepreneur and owner of Beverly Hills wellness company SCULPTERY Sara Elaziz.
Elaziz launched her brand after a self-journey, immersing herself into wellness research. During that journey she was re-introduced to lymphatic drainage, revisiting the importance of it as part of anyone’s journey. After much research, she signed up for private training obtaining 15+ certifications from the best in the world. That’s when she knew that she needed to convince the market that lymphatic massages were not only a necessity but could also help transform the body into that hourglass figure we all lust for.
Renting a room in a clinic in Beverly hills, Elaziz went into business on her own. It started slow, but before long, influencers, and celebrities such as Jordyn Sparks, Blac Chyna, Saweetie, Alycia Bella, Raja Kumari, Stassie, Lucy Hale to name a few, soon found her, and the SCULPTERY Business was born. As business continued to boom, and thanks to her long-time celebrity clients singing her praises on all social platforms, the brand began to expand, releasing take home kits for quick at home touch ups and has now even added masterclasses throughout the US.

Hi Sara, please tell us a little about you?
I’ve always had a passion for beauty. I’ve been in the industry for 18 years and started off as an artist and grew my way through the industry. I’ve developed some of your favorite brands as well as grew some of your favorite beauty destinations. The plan was always to leave my stamp in the Beauty Industry and that’s exactly what I’m striving for daily.
Describe yourself in 3 words?
When did you start in the business?
The beauty Industry when I was 16. My Sculptery business was born in 2017 after a self emerging experience. My CBD Skincare line was born in 2015. I also have a background in Cultivation of Cannabis where my love for merging beauty & weed was created. It was something I was experimenting with before CBD Beauty became a “trend”. Same thing applies to Sculptery. The development of the brand was created at a time when Lymphatic Care & Body Sculpting were no where near as popular as they are now. I always strive for creating “lifestyle” products, not just “beauty” products.
What book should every entrepreneur read?
The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D Wattles, Believe Nation by David Imonitie & The 48 Laws of Power. The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy. Just to name a few. They all consistent of understanding Belief, Manifestation, the Power of Consistency & How to execute & understanding who/what you are dealing with in order to win in life. Great books and are must haves.
What is the key to your success?
God always. I never believe I can do anything without him. He had blessed me with the mindset of never GIVING UP & always BELIEVING.
What is fun and rewarding about what you do? And what’s not?
Making others feel great about themselves & achieving their goals. Whether it’s achieving their dream body or helping someone start their own business, the reward of seeing their happiness is the best feeling ever. So far I haven’t found anything not rewarding or fun because this is my passion. I truly love what I do. I love helping others feel their best and I love the struggle the comes with building a Legacy. These are not just “brands” for me or a “job” . This is what I do best and I’m on my journey to fulfill the role giving to me by God the best way I can. This is just the beginning.
Now what about your company “SCULPTERY?” What are the main benefits of SCULPTERY?
Internal through external benefits. It’s not just the snatched affect we all desire. There are many internal health benefits such as; increase in blood flow & circulation, increases your metabolism, promotes better digestion, promotes healthier oxygen circulation etc. this treatment was originally created as a health treatment, but we turned into a body treatment by perfecting the protocol to give the best results.
How ofter is recommended to visit SCULPTERY?
For best permanent results, we recommend at least once a week until we go through a recommended series. Most client achieve their goals within 4-6 sessions. These treatments are not designed to be used as replacements to healthy lifestyle, but to work in conjunction. It’s important to remember this and be committed to trusting the process.

Lucy Hale, Saweetie, LisaRaye, Black Chyna, Angela & Vanessa Simons, Raja Kumara, Telli Swift, Zena Foster.
What do you think is the secret to have a successful business in a very competitive market like yours?
I think the most important thing is to remain yourself and remain unique. I never take for granted having the access to any of my clients vip, or not. It’s important to remain humble and have a positive tunnel vision. Block out the negativity and keep going. I try to remain as grateful as possible daily for all the blessings God hands me.
Who are some of your favorite models and designers, and why?
Too many to list lol but the fashion world is so beautiful to me.
What does fashion mean to you?
Fashion is art to me. It’s a lense you get to put on of someone else’s view. It’s limitless.
How would you explain your fashion style?
On a daily basis at work I’m in my scrubs. So glamorous I know. But when I’m out I love going in between a relaxed Tom boy with some heels or fresh sneaker look, and an extra glam look with a mini bag and pop of color on my lips. It just depends on the occasion.
Who is your biggest beauty inspiration?
Some of the legends of course. From the classic Chanel, Estée Lauder, Dior to the new icons such as Rihanna.
How would your best friend describe you?
Loyal and very protective over who and what I love. Optimistic and unstoppable.
What is your own definition of happiness?
Having the freedom to live how you what. Having the freedom of time. Being an entrepreneur of course is hard work, but being able to have the time to spend with my family or live life when I want makes it worth it.
What is next for Sara Elaziz in 2021?

If you are a book, what would be the title of the book and why?
Sophisticatedly Ruthless- it defines my character well in going after my aspirations no matter what difficulties may have came my way. It sums up my drive, hustle & motivation.
Something people don’t know about you?
I love to dance, in fact I was high school best dancer and aspired to become a choreographer. I was also an athlete. I swam for 11 years, played volleyball & basketball.
Who was your role model as a child?
Both my parents. They were hustlers, determined and kept their word. I feel our word is our currency in the world we live in. It looses its value when you don’t keep it and increases when you do. They taught my sister and I that hard work pays off and to never quit.

Vita brand C hair Serum, Ordinary Multipeptide Serum, Skin Ceuticals Physical UV spf 50, La Bhanga Toner, Laura Mercier Tinted Mousturizer, Nars Laguna Bronzer, Fenty High lighter duo, Arabic Cole eyeliner, Hourglass Mascara, Ilia Tinted Lip Balm.

What is your favorite healthy food?
Dates & mangos They remind me of being in Egypt back home and they fill you up.
And your favorite cheat food?
Pizza and any kind of Asian food. So good but so bad.
What would be a deal breaker on a first date?
Bad hygiene. Yup. I will leave it at that lol
Which project is still on your bucket list?
Definitely the Fenty project Sculpting Rihanna and the Navy before a runway shoot.
Non profit to give back to women who were incarcerated. Help them stand on their feet by teaching them how to build their own business.
Work with a major producer on creating a tv show inspired by events in my life.
Free the lions tigers and bears lol I love wildlife and would love to have my own sanctuary and free the animals.
In five years from now, where do you see yourself and your career?
I see myself personally having my family started. Raising my children and traveling freely. My brands will be global and we will have locations in the major cities of the world.
What music do you like?
I love all music. I love French & Latin music, Caribbean music, hip hop, R&B, rap everything. Except country lol not too big on it. I have a couple favs that are classics but my go to music is anything that makes you feel good. Take me to the Yacht kind of music lol
Do you support any charity?
I’ve supported numerous local charities but recently have been focusing my charity work in 3rd world countries. The resources available to the people in many foreign countries are beyond limited and it breaks my heart to see children starving. These things come from the heart and I prefer to keep them between God & myself 🤍
What do you like to watch on Tv?
I love any business shows. The Profit is one of my favorites I love learning how I can make my businesses better so I learn a lot from that show. I also love our daily binges. Right now it’s BMF by 50 Cent. All the Power Spin-offs are definitely my favs. I also love watching shows on Flipping Homes. Another passion of mine and I love all the knowledge.
3 things you can’t leave home without?
Lol I feel naked with out them.
Idea of a perfect Sunday?
Somewhere by the water or nature enjoying the hot weather water and sand. With people I love and island music. Just good relaxing vibes.
What do you think of Social Media?
It’s great for business but bad for your health lol. It’s a love hate relationship. I personally barely use my personal page and by the time I’m done with work I don’t want to look at it anymore. I think it’s a very powerful tool to grow your business however if you let it persuade you to believe you need to be like everyone on it; it can be dangerous. Advice to the youth when it comes to social media- you are enough. Don’t over indulge and don’t believe everything you see.
