What is Eyebrow Tinting?
Eyebrow tinting is a no-fuss way to take your eyebrows from “barely there” to full and lush-looking. Individuals who have undergone this service in order to alter the shade of their “too blonde” brows have reported loving their results. People notice something is different, better, but they can’t tell what you have had done. Eyebrow tinting is a great alternative to the tedious task of drawing in eyebrows every day when you apply your makeup. Some clients’ eyebrows are naturally so light that they feel as if they look like they have no eyebrows. Eyebrow tinting is a quick, easy process that can restore visibility of the brows, helping them become visible and more defined.
What is Eyelash Tinting?
Have you ever known anyone who tinted their lashes? Doing so really helps to darken lighter lashes that seem to disappear. Tinting allows a person’s natural eyelashes to stand out and helps them to appear healthier. If you spend a lot of time at the pool or beach in the summer and don’t want to have to worry about your mascara running, lash tinting is the ideal solution for that made-up look without the actual makeup. Also, those individuals who suffer from allergies and are constantly rubbing their eyes as a result, and, therefore, are not able to wear mascara, will benefit greatly from this service. However, unlike mascara, lash tinting only works to darken the lashes, not lengthen or thicken them. The process takes around 25 to 30 minutes. The eyelashes are dyed from root to tip to give them a more dramatic appearance. We recommend a 24 hour patch test for anyone considering undergoing this procedure for the first time.
What are the Benefits of Eyelash Tinting?
Eyelash tinting is a great alternative to the daily application of mascara as it works to make every lash appear darker. It is also a convenient mascara replacement for those individuals desiring darker lashes but who have sensitivities to mascara because of contact lens use or allergies. Since lash tinting will not bleed or run, it is a great product for athletes who sweat or swim and for those emotional, tear-inducing occasions. It has proven to be an amazing time saver for people always on the go. Because tinting fills out the lash line, the eyelashes appear fuller and longer looking for that gorgeous, smoldering gaze for which every girl aspires.
What is the Eyelash and Eyebrow Tinting Process?
Eyelash and eyebrow tinting is comparable to having your hair dyed. Our skilled, licensed aesthetician gently applies plant-based dye to the eyelashes or eyebrows with a small, disposable mascara wand-like brush. Within 15 minutes of application, the lashes and/or brows appear darker, and the excess dye is removed with water and a soft cotton swab.
How Long Will the Dye Last?
Eyelash and eyebrow tints can last anywhere from two to four weeks, depending on your eyebrows’ or eyelashes’ own natural growth cycle.
How Frequently Should Eyelashes and Eyebrows Be Re-tinted?
In order to maintain your new dark, fuller look, tinting will need to be redone every three to four weeks.
Will Tinting My Eyelashes Be Painful?
In the majority of cases, tinting treatment is virtually pain-free. If the dye gets into your eye, it can cause eye irritation and/or stinging. However, rinsing the eyes with water will help to soothe this issue. Keep in mind that eyelash and eyebrow tinting may not be for everyone, especially those with extremely sensitive skin or allergies to hair dye and/or color additives.
