When I saw the pictures I knew she was gonna be a good worker, but when I went there,guys, Sara it's an incredible person. We found a nice approach since the beginning. We talked all the time and literally have fun. And that's really important! I had 3 hours and a half tattoo, absolutely fine, everything tidy and clean, organised, and as I said Sara is very experienced she made a fantastic tattoo honestly, I'm so happy. I finally found my tattooer and yes I definitely recommend this place, especially this person!! I'll see you soon thanks ;)

I love coming here. Sarah has given me four tattoos now and I'm so pleased I already have another session booked for May! I can't fault how meticulous and dedicated she is to her job. She also makes her clients, my friends have been too, feel very comfortable and relaxed. There's a lovely family atmosphere here and the salon is absolutely spotless. Thank you, Sarah, see you in May. x Jane.

Had semi- permanent eyebrow done there and wish I never did.
At the initial consultation Sara seemed confident and friendly. I had my semi-permanent eyebrow done just before New Year, during the procedure the pain was intense and nearly unbearable even with the numb cream. I was ok with the color that to be applied to my brows(dark brown). I said I don't want too dark, however I've noticed that my brows looked really dark straight after the procedure. Sara assured me it's normal and the color will fade within 4 weeks. I've also booked an top up session on 10th Mar.

To my surprise It's been nearly two and a half months, the colours are not getting any lighter, as dark as day 1, especially the left brow is like jet black. Normally color on the end of the brow should be lighter than the front of the brow, mine ones are same dark, so they look so fake! I asked for a combination of powder and hair stroke effect, however, no signs of hair stroke, also visibly asymmetrical.

On the retouch day, I gave feedback to Sara and she became a bit defensive, when I said all I wanted is to have natural looking brows, she said it's not possible and I don't seem understand semi permanent make up. So I asked why she didn't tell me before, she said she did. I told her she's never mentioned that before, if she did I wouldn't even agreed to get my brows tattooed. Sara then said she showed me pictures before. That's true, she did show me a lot of pictures, but all of them were freshly tattooed brows, none of them was healed after first visit. In my opinion this is a bit misleading, as there is no way you could figure out how you gonna look like after healing from the tattoo ---- by looking at those pictures!

In the end I just gave up the discussion. I just asked if she could remove the eyebrow tattoo, the answer was no, but she did propose that she could fix the dark color by tattoo a lighter color. I didn't go ahead with her proposal because I've lost confidence in her, and don't

I was hoping to improve my look and save time on drawing the brows, but now I spend even longer to draw and make them look symmetrical and less fake. I am now looking for a way to remove or fade them!

So my advice to those who wants to have semi-permanent brows is to ask the technician to show you pictures not only fresh tattooed brows but also HEALED ones!!!

Hi
The asymmetry of which you speak is due to the fact that you refused to do a subsequent remodeling that is required to fix the color on both eyebrows and give these the same level on both sides, because when color leaves in the first session as logic does not go away in the same way and there may be asymmetry and color differences then retouching serves for this.
I gave you two advice, sorry you didn't understand.
I suggest you inform yourself better next time because this is the second time you make semi permanent make up and you're not happy with,
Maybe your iddea this service has nothing to do with permanetn seeds make up.

I'm semi permanent make up artis and tattoo artist, working from 12 years in this industry and I also teach in Italy.

Best

Thanks for your reply. I had permanent eyebrow tattoo done over 20 years ago, I did mention that I wasn't happy with the end of the brows as they are a bit going down. However this is due to ageing and have nothing to do with the technician. I've never said I was unhappy with her and in fact I think she did a good job. If I was unhappy then I would've corrected my brows 20 years ago.

The reason I refused your suggestion is that I am worried my brows gonna get worse after the second session. You said you could tattoo a lighter color to make my brows less darker, I know usually it's possible to make it 1 or 2 shades lighter, I just don't know how can you make it lighter than that?

Thanks for your advice, when I search for the next semipermanent artist, I'll make sure to do a bit more research, eg check his/her qualifications, at which professional body they were trained, which tattoo niddle they use, which brand of pigments they use, most importantly lots of healed pictures from previous clients.

I've been for plenty of beauty treatments and procedures in my life. Most of them were good, but nothing to rave about. But Sara was phenomenal. This has honestly been one of the best decisions I have ever made, beauty wise. My eyebrows look amazing and I am thrilled with the result. They have never looked this good.
Sara is not only a lovely woman, but takes time to ensure that the end product is perfect. She spent time going through the procedure beforehand, discussing ideas and going over the style I wanted. The pain was pretty intense for me, my skin felt very raw and sensitive afterwards. And the result was pretty comical for the first few days, I looked like I had coloured in my brows with permanent marker! But once everything healed and the true colour was revealed, the brows looked fantastic. Go to Sara. You will not regret it.

Had semi permanent eyeliner done with Sara, recently. I can honestly say she is very professional, patient and very gentle. I would have no hesitation in recommending her services.

Just had my eyebrows done and Sarah is amazing , she corrected my eyebrows and the shape is amazing and very natural, she listens to what you want and offers a great service. Her hands are very steady and compared to where I went before I would say painless just felt a few scratches! tempted to get my eyeliner done too now…

I'm also going to try the hair salon services as I've had a really good consultation with the stylist there too..

I really recommend Sara at Vanity Plus! I had the powder brow and Sara spent a lot of time explaining to me about the procedure and what she was going to do. She also spent a long time getting the shape right and making sure I was 100% happy before she started with the tattooing. It hurt slightly more than I realised but is more uncomfortable and not a strong pain. Sara is great at making sure you are happy the whole way through. I am really happy with my brows as they were really thin before, now they look great all the time! You have the first appointment, then you have the second appointment to make sure you are totally happy, Sara then does the third appointment for free. If you are unhappy with your brows, I would recommend going to Sara, I really like the shape of mine now!

The treatment was amazing - I was scared to get semi permanent make up however Sara made me feel comfortable and showed me what she was going to do step by step and eased my mind. The treatment is amazing and I will definitely be going back for more!

A positive experience in the hands of a confident lady with lots of experience. So far satisfied with the semi permanent work done on my eyebrows and would go back again.

I had semi permanent make-up done on my eyebrows and after the procedure was finished I left and went about my day as normal. Recovery was super easy and there was no discomfort at all. For the first 5 days the brows were dark, which is normal, but then the outer layer peeled off and the true color began to emerge. My eyebrows look incredibly natural and I've gotten numerous compliments on them. Sara makes subtle hair strokes on the brows to give a remarkably natural appearance. I was thrilled with my brows after the first treatment, but went back today for my 3rd and final treatment where Sara made some minor enhancements. I sure wish I would've known about Sara years ago! She is truly a gifted artist in her field and is just as nice as can be.

Sara and her team are fantastic! The lady is a pro. The work she did on my eyebrows and eyeliner literally took five years off my face. Incredible! She is very professional, meticulous and thorough. If you have any doubt about the benefit of semi permanent, do go see Sara, she'll sort you out ;-)

It was ok, good location. A bit disappointed with the explanation of the treatment and cost in general and other visits.

This could be my most valuable semi-permanent make-up order ever!!!! Sarah is really really a great artist!!! I would love to recommend her to everyone!! She is kind, patient, professional, and even responsible!!! My eyeliner faded quicker than the other girls, however, that's definitely NOT Sarah's problem, it was just because my skin type is so sensitive and very difficult to keep the color. Similar situation came with my hair as well. I could not do any kind of hair dye or curly till now, because the colors and the curly hair could only last for several hours, then just gone. So I was so worried about the final appearance of my semi-permanent eyeliner. But Sarah made it!!! She chose different tools to push the color into the skin carefully, with her very professional skills. Now I love my eyeliners!!! They definitely help me to open the eyes and make them brighter!!! Lovely!! Because of my "unique" type of skin, Sarah has to spend much more time on her work, but she never complained. It's really nice to meet such a genius artist in London!!! It would be my pleasure to come to Sarah for my eyebrows as well in the next few months.
