BROW TINTING & HYBRID
What are the benefits of brow tinting?
If you’re looking for a fuss-free way to enhance your natural brows by giving them a bolder look, brow tinting gives long-lasting definition to brow hairs for 2-4 weeks. Tinting is a great option for busy individuals and jet-setters who want perfect, low maintenance brow definition around the clock.
Do you have different shades of tint?
We have several different tint colors and all tints can be left on the brows for various amounts of time to achieve the perfect shade for you. The longer the tint stays on, the darker it will become and the longer it can last on the underlying skin.
How does tinting work?
Tinting is similar to dying your hair. We carefully select and mix a perfect tint for each client and develop the dye with peroxide before applying. We have multiple shades and two different tint brands to ensure we create the perfect shade. Our Brow Specialists stay with you the entire time your tint is processing (1-5 minutes), watching the color develop to be sure it does not become too dark. Our process involves removing the color and re-applying until the perfect shade has developed. No risk leaving with jet-black eyebrows here!
How long will my tint last?
Tinting will last anywhere from 2-4 weeks. The length of time that your tinting will last depends on your lifestyle, skin care products, and skin type. The more often you wash your face, the faster the tinting can fade. Other things like sun exposure and harsh skincare products also reduce the time that your tint can last.
Will the tint product tint my skin or just the hair? Does it work on grey brow hair?
Tinting generally only tints the brow hair, however we can leave the tint on longer to tint the underlying skin as well. Note: tint on the skin generally only lasts 1-3 days post-appointment. The tint will cover grey hairs, but it should be noted that often grey hair is more resistant to tinting than other hair types.
What is brow hybrid?
Brow hybrid is long lasting brow dye that remains on the skin underneath the brows for up to 2 weeks and stays on the hair for 4-6 weeks. Brow hybrid is a solution for clients wanting their brows to remain darker than their natural brow hair color for the same amount of time that their shaping lasts. It is also a great solution for clients wanting to achieve a more filled-in look without having to use makeup or a brow pencil. Brow Henna also effectively covers grey brow hairs and comes in a variety of different shades.
What is the difference between brow tint and brow hybrid?
Brow tint uses a similar dye that Hair Stylists use. The tint is mixed with a low percentage of hydrogen peroxide (3%) and then applied to the brows for 1-5 minutes and lasts on the hair for 2-4 weeks. Brow hybrid is a specially formulated mixture made specifically for eyebrows. Brow hybrid lasts on the brow hair for 4-6 weeks, and on the skin underneath the brow hair for up to 2-weeks! If you have very light eyebrows, or do not normally wear a lot of brow makeup, we recommend starting with brow tinting. If you are used to a more filled-in and defined brow, are looking for a longer lasting solution, have stubborn grey brow hairs, or are looking to camouflage gaps or sparse brow hair, we recommend booking a Brow hybrid service
How do I help with the longevity of my brow tint or brow hybrid?
The most important factor in extending the longevity of brow tint and brow hybrid is to not get the brow area wet for 24 hours after application. Also, exercising caution when applying any type of skin care products containing exfoliators (topical acne medications, retinol, lightening products, alpha hydroxy acids, benzol peroxide, salicylic acid, glycolic acid etc.) Keep all of these away from your brows as they will strip them of their color and could harm the hair as well.
