This service includes a brow exfoliation, Olaplex shampoo cleanse, and conditioning treatment.
Brow Tint is similar to the dye we use to color our hair except that it is formulated to be safe for use around the eye area. It is gentler than regular hair color and will not compromise the integrity of your brow hair, whereas regular hair color can cause damage to the brow due to high concentrations of ammonia and peroxide. Brow Tint needs hair to adhere to, therefore making it a better option for clients with medium-to-full brows. Brow Tinting is not an alternative to tattooing or Henna and will not last on areas without hair.
How does it work?
An eye-safe dye formula similar to hair color (brow tint) is applied to the brow using a makeup brush or spoolie and can leave a temporary stain on the skin. Brow Tint is not intended to last on the skin longer than 5 days (this is just a silver lining to the service) and will only temporarily darken the color of your existing brow hairs. Because it is a semi-permanent formula, it will need to be reapplied to remain fresh and dark.
How do I take care of my new brows?
I provide Aftercare Cards for tinting services to each client so they can use products that won’t fade their tint! Freshly tinted brows should be kept dry and not washed for 24 hours post-treatment. Overwashing with strong cleansers, the use of makeup removers, and makeup wipes should be avoided.
How often should I re-tint?
Average wear for brow tint is anywhere from 4-10 weeks, though I have noticed blonde color does not last as long as darker browns and blacks, due to the fact that the color molecule is larger and it does not penetrate the hair shaft as deeply. I recommend color services be repeated every 6-8 weeks depending on each client's rate of growth and after-care practices
Who can't get tinted?
Clients who are allergic to paraphenylenediamine (PPD) cannot or other ingredients in hair dye cannot receive this service. If your brows have been treated with henna (mendhi), please wait 16 weeks (4 months) from the application date before receiving a tinting service from me. Please wait 30 days after receiving a chemical peel, dermaplaning treatment, microdermabrasion, microblading (any form of eyebrow tattoo), or microneedling to seek out this service. Those experiencing hormonal changes or hair loss due to pregnancy, birth control, stress, or surgery may not be ideal candidates for tinting, as the chemicals used may cause brittleness or premature shedding of the brow hair. I recommend that Brow Rehab clients wait until I approve them as candidates before booking this service. Those with recently open cuts, wounds, infections, undiagnosed lumps, or sunburn in the brow area cannot be serviced.
