Semi-permanent Brow Solutions
Tinting is great if your eyebrows are fair, need a boost, or if you just want to cut down on your get-ready time.
This is a service which involves applying a semi-permanent dye to your brows to add thickness, shading, and definition.
It’s also definitely the way to go if you change your hair color and want your brows to match.
This isn’t an end-all eyebrow solution.
There is some upkeep, as the color fades after about four weeks.
And, you might still have to supplement tinting with makeup in some spots.
I wouldn’t recommend attempting a tint job on your own.
Leave this technique to the professionals!
Most specialists use a vegetable-based dye on eyebrows rather than a regular hair dye.
They’re also experienced at color matching, so they’ll make sure your eyebrows look more natural and less Mommy Dearest.
If your eyebrows are thin or nonexistent, a few years ago tattooing might have been your only hope for creating brows without drawing them on every day.
Today, the trending technique is Microblading, AKA “eyebrow embroidery”, for natural-looking, semi-permanent arches.
It’s a great option to reconstruct missing brows or fill in/reshape existing ones.
In this process, a specialist uses a small tool equipped with tiny blades or needles which are dipped into pigment and then deposited into the top layers of skin in strokes.
The result looks like realistic individual hairs and appears more natural than the filled in look of traditional tattooed makeup.
Celebrities are jumping on this trend too.
Actress, Bella Thorne recently Snapchatted her microblading process and posted the awesome results on Instagram.
The whole procedure takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.
A specialist will pre-draw on your eyebrows with a pencil until you both agree on a shape.
And, though a numbing gel is applied before, it’s not a completely painless process.
Most reviewers put the pain level on par with a threading or tweezing job, but say it’s worth it for the incredible results!
You might be instructed to avoid getting your new brows wet for anywhere from a couple days to a week afterward, and to apply a healing ointment regularly.
Microblading artists warn clients not to freak out if their brows appear darker right after the procedure.
Color usually fades over two weeks to a more natural shade.
It’s also a two-step process.
You’ll have to go back for touch ups after 4-6 weeks to fill in spots and make adjustments.
This is a great time to address any concerns or point out spots you’d like fixed with your specialist.
It’s not permanent, lasting an average of 1-3 years, and can be on the pricey side but not on our salon.
However, the results are pretty impressive, and they really alleviate that no-one-sees-me-without-my-brows anxiety.
