Darker, more dramatic eyelashes and brows are highly sought-after when it comes to the desire for a beautiful appearance that needs very little upkeep. But for patients with lighter-colored hair especially, it can be time-consuming and frustrating to be constantly penciling in and darkening their brows and applying coat after coat of mascara on their lashes.
Brow and lash tinting are a long-lasting solution that add color and darken brows and lashes, giving you the enhanced, bold look you want.
What is tinting?
Lash and brow tinting can be thought of as a semi-permanent dye job. Tinting does not add volume or keep your eyelashes or eyebrows in shape, but it adds color and darkens with cream-based dyes. This gives a more dramatic, impactful look to the eyes and the overall appearance of your face.
Tinting can be an add-on service to lash lift and brow lamination or as a stand-alone treatment for people who want to intensify their eyelashes or eyebrows, or both.
What happens during a tinting treatment?
What happens during a tinting treatment? As a first step, our lash and brow expert will consult with you to explain the treatment steps in detail, answer any questions and discuss your options. The right dye color for your lashes and/or brows is an important decision. Your esthetician will help you select the right look based on your natural hair color, skin tone and personal preference when it comes to the final look you’re going for.
The first part of lash tinting treatment is the placement of a protective eye pad on the skin. You will need to keep your eyes closed during the complete process to ensure your eyes are not exposed to the dye.
The dye is then brushed onto the lashes of your eyes. It is left to process for a few minutes until the color is fully set. From there, any excess product is wiped away and the protective eye pad is removed.
Brow tinting is a very simple procedure when done professionally. During a brow tinting treatment, the dye is directly applied onto the eyebrows. The dye is left to sit for a couple of minutes, allowing the color to take full effect.
The treatment time for tinting is very short. It takes only about half an hour for both the brows and lashes to be done. There is no recovery or downtime after the treatment. You can be right on your way and back to work or your usual activities as soon as the treatment is complete--sporting darker, more dramatic and attractive brows and lashes.
How long do the results of a tinting treatment last?
Most eyebrow and eyelash tints will last between four to six weeks. The dye will fade slowly and naturally over time in a subtle way, ending up with your brows and lashes ultimately going back to their natural color.
To make your results last longer, keep your lashes and brows protected from the sun and use gentle, oil-free cleansers or eye makeup.
Who is a candidate for lash or brow tinting?
If you have lighter hair that causes your brows or lashes to be washed out or not noticeable or dramatic enough to suit you, lash and brow tinting may be just the thing for you. If you simply don’t want to deal with constantly darkening or filling in your brows or applying mascara on your lashes, you may be a perfect candidate for tinting.
