LASHoff 2017 Winner Sarah-Anne Barham began with just 4 regular clients and now has a waiting list of 36!

“NovaLash is honestly the best company I have ever come across. I owe all my success so far to NovaLash. I can’t even begin to explain my passion and love I have for the company. Not only have I received an outstanding education but they have given me the best support I could ever ask for. Winning the title “Lash Artist of the Year” and becoming a NovaLash Brand Ambassador, has helped my business in many ways.

6 months after winning the LASHoff event, I have built a strong clientele and I am now booked up 4 months in advance. I can’t take on any new clients. In fact, I currently have a waiting list of 36 people who are waiting for a slot to be open!

I am currently expanding into bigger premises so I will be able to take on new clients. Also, I will be taking on new staff members by the end of the year.

NovaLash has opened so many new doors for me. I have been able to travel to new cities, work alongside the NovaLash team at tradeshows and be able to meet new faces. I’ve built good relationships with beauty magazine editors too!

I have gained so much more confidence in my work and myself since winning, I never thought I could do it! My business has had so much media exposure being featured in so many professional beauty magazines like Modern Salon.

I have lashed celebrities including “Only Way is Essex” star Gemma Collins. She has become one of my regular clients who I see every other month!

Before winning the title “Lash Artist of the Year”, my Instagram social media page, @sarahannes_beauty had only 275 follows and since winning, I now have over 1000 followers with people messaging me from all over the world and reposting my lash work!

I can’t thank NovaLash enough for giving me this amazing opportunity to be a part of their team and represent them as a Brand Ambassador. I walked into 2017 very lost and not knowing what direction my business would go in. Winning LASHoff has completely changed my life and now I am so excited to see how far I can grow my business and what Sarah- Anne’s Beauty will grow to be.”
