10 Things About Brow Tinting You May Not Know

September 9, 2020 Under Skin Treatments

Even if it may not seem like it, the eyebrows are among the most outstanding features of your face. With the right shape and fullness, they can frame your face and create a neat and sculpted look. Although makeup can help, it can be a relief to not have to worry about your natural look. Brow tinting is one option to save time on filling in your brows. During a brow tinting job, your aesthetician will apply semi-permanent dye to your brows to enhance their shape and create a fuller, darker look. If you’re exploring your options, then here’s what to know about this option.

1. It Only Takes a Few Minutes

The dyeing process itself only takes a few minutes. Before this process, you’ll discuss your goals and what level of fullness you want to achieve. Then, your aesthetician will customize the right process for you. In all, you can expect your session to last around fifteen to thirty minutes.

2. The Dye is Applied in Both Directions

Once your aesthetician mixes your customized dye, they will apply it in the direction of your hair growth. Then, a second layer is applied in the opposite direction of your natural hair growth. This ensures it’s completely blended into the natural hairs.

3. Dye on Your Skin is Normal

Although your aesthetician will ensure the dye is applied to your brows, it’s normal to see some spill onto the skin. This normally fades within a few days and is completely concealable with makeup.

4. You’ll See Instant Results

Like dyeing your hair, you’ll see instant results after your session. Although the color may settle in and shift in the few days after, you can enjoy instantly fuller and darker brows after your appointment.

5. It Lasts Longer

If you’re looking to cut down on the time you spend filling in your brows every day, this is a great option. With brow tinting, you get natural-looking brows that can last up to six weeks. You can visit your aesthetician after around four weeks to retouch.

6. There are No Side Effects

Brow tinting is safe and causes no adverse reaction with your skin with the right approach from your aesthetician. For extra safety and to reduce fallout, your aesthetician will apply a layer of Vaseline to act as a barrier between the dye and your skin. This allows it to be wiped away before it can dye the skin.

7. Choosing the Best Tint

Because everyone has a naturally different look, it’s important to find the right tint with your aesthetician. This can be based on things like your natural hair color, skin tone, and face shape.

8. Refraining from Oil-based Products

After a brow tinting job, it’s best to avoid using oil-based products around the area. That’s because it can cause the dye to fade and weaken. Instead, you should make sure to use gel and cream-based products. If you still prefer to use makeup on your brows, your aesthetician can recommend your best options.

9. It’s Ideal for Fine Hair

If you have fine eyebrows, it can be difficult and labor-intensive to get them to stand out with makeup. Tinting can bring out more hairs that otherwise might not be visible, giving a fuller and more elongated look.

10. No Hair Removal Involved

Brow tinting does not involve any plucking, waxing, or shaping during treatment. This means it’s perfectly pain-free and relaxing.
