BROW TINTING - A Perfect Complement to Threading

If you are looking for a temporary way of enhancing the look of your brows, maybe tinting would do the trick for you. Eyebrow tinting is a technique of applying semi-permanent dye to improve, shape, and delineate your brows. This allows a professional to cleverly control the brow area by darkening the fine hairs that surround the outer edge of the brow to increase the width. It also darkens the fine hairs in the inner center of the brow that are in less dense areas, which will create a longer brow tail and a more ideal shape. The result would be darker, fuller, and fluffier brows that last from four to six weeks.

The procedure generally takes around ten to fifteen minutes to finish. The first step is for the professional to cleanse the area with a pH-stabilizing rinse then the eyebrow hair is brushed and mapped out to the desired shape. A cream, usually petroleum jelly, is applied as a barrier around the eyebrows to prevent staining of the skin. Afterwards, the tint will be applied beginning from one end of the eyebrow to the other end and then the second layer is applied in the reverse direction. Your technician will mix the dye and apply it carefully. In order to obtain the right color, it must be one or two shades lighter compared to your hair color. The dye is left for some time which helps in attaining the optimal color. Finally, the excess dye is removed with a paper towel. In order for your eyebrow tint to last longer, keep them dry and avoid getting them wet for at least twelve hours after having them tinted.

If at first, your brows look too dark, just wait it out as the first darkness will only last for a few days and will slowly change to get closer to the right color every time you cleanse your face. Take into consideration the type of dye that is used, how you scrub your face, the sunscreen that you use, and how fast your hair grows and sheds. Moreover, the quality of your color can be affected by sun exposure, saltwater, and chlorinated water. Keep them dry and don’t use an oil-based cleanser, make-up, and other oil-based skincare products to make your tint last longer.

The risks with eyebrow tinting are allergic reactions and infections especially around the eye which is thinner compared to the skin on other parts of the body. Other effects include burning eyes, eye infections, and other allergies. That is why it is important to have a patch test before undergoing this procedure. Better choose a vegetable-based or natural dye which have fewer chemicals and is less likely to irritate your skin. More importantly, leave the tinting to a trained professional. That way, you will avoid any untoward incidents.

As with any other beauty treatment, the cost of eyebrow tinting will depend on your salon, but typically it does not cost much. You will notice that your eyebrow tint gives you bolder and more natural-looking eyebrows which accentuate your features making you more youthful and sexier. It also simplifies your make-up process thus saving you time and energy. Just do your research first and follow all the precautions before doing this amazing technique.

BROW THREADING - Little Pain, Big Gain

Brow threading is a brow removal technique that has originated and practiced in India and Central Asia for many centuries. It has gained popularity in western countries in more recent times especially when coupled with other cosmetic applications. This technique has afforded people with an alternative to tweezing and waxing. In threading, a thin polyester or cotton thread is doubled then twisted, then rolled over areas of unwanted hair at the follicle level. After holding onto the hair, it is pulled out, root and all. Unlike tweezing where hair is removed one at a time, threading can remove short rows of hair at once. Threading can also be used in removing unwanted hairs on the upper lip areas or the entire face. However, it is not advisable for other parts of the body as the hair on those areas is too much to remove and is typically coarse.

The biggest factor that scares many from threading is how much it hurts. It is suggested that you ask your threading tech to try it on the fuzz on the back of your hand to give you an idea of how it feels. Threading requires precision, so go for a specialist for the best results. In contrast to waxing where it removes any swath of hair it comes in contact with, the threading specialist has greater control over which hair to remove. Even the tiniest hair can be removed thus no unwanted hairs are left behind. Because of this, they will grow at the same time, so there is no need for tweezing stray hair every day. This allows for a more natural look, as the technique enables you to keep or remove hair which makes a perfect shape every time.

This is basically a quick process, so most professionals do the whole thing in about ten minutes, lesser time if your brows are already in a good shape. The eyebrow threads last on average between two to five weeks, you can also maintain the look for a longer time with touch-up appointments that are not as intensive as a full-scale brow shaping. A full eyebrow threading will not cost you that much since it is usually in the same price range as eyebrow waxing. The touch-ups would be much lesser or even free when it’s a part of a package deal.

Some dermatologists warn about some health risks involved in brow threading. If dirty threads are used and there is broken skin, there might be a potential spread of the herpes virus and staph infections. It is important to be handled by an experienced stylist to avoid any damage to your skin. Since the cotton thread is rubbing against your skin, it can still cause some redness and minor irritations, especially on very sensitive skin types. That is why the service is usually followed up with a cooling gel such as aloe vera, rose water, or tea tree gel which helps soothe the skin, calm the area, and remove any redness quickly.

Brow threading is the perfect temporary solution for hair removal and unlike other methods, it does not involve using chemicals. Moreover, it is less painful as compared to waxing and plucking, long-lasting, and affordable. Perhaps the biggest benefit that threading has over other procedures is its ability to shape eyebrows with remarkable accuracy. It allows your stylist to perfectly shape your eyebrows according to your preference.

Brow lamination is the latest brow trend that originated in Russia and is rapidly spreading to the west. It is a contemporary technique of making a full, slicked-up brow with a high-shine finish.

Before & After

It is becoming a popular trend especially with those in their 30s to 50s who have lost a lot of brow hair, either through illness, the natural aging process, or just over waxing. Brow experts in England are raving about the dramatic results it can create. Many British celebrities are evidence of this and if you scroll through the hashtag #browlamination, most originated from there. One of the pioneers of this treatment in London stated that they were able to recreate a client’s brow without the use of needles or make-up. Not only that, they can raise a client’s arch, extend their tails and give them a fuller brow by lifting the brow hair or giving them a messy, fluffy brow.

Brow lamination is primarily a perm for your brows. A setting lotion helps the brow hair stay brushed and lifted upward for about one month and a half and sometimes it can last up to two months. The actual process starts by brushing a lifting cream onto the brow. This step will generate a chemical process that will break down bonds in each hair, letting them move into a new shape. Then, the brow hairs are brushed up into place and a neutralizer is applied. This will reform the bonds into their new shape. A nourishing oil is also put onto the brows to restore their moisture after the chemical treatment. Following the treatment, the brows may be waxed, plucked, or tinted depending on the look the client wants.

This procedure requires special care and attention so be careful with the skincare products that you use especially if you are prone to irritation from chemicals. Avoid the possibility of getting these chemicals in contact with your eyes. Furthermore, brow lamination could harm your brow hairs themselves especially from overprocessing. Just remember to keep the health of your brows, including your eyes always.
