What are henna brows?
Brow Henna is a form of tinting that will last longer than the average brow tint. It is used to stain the skin underneath the brow as well as the hair to give a fuller, darker, and more defined look.
Henna has been used for centuries for all kinds of body decorations, but in the eyebrow area it is a fairly new application. Unlike henna used for body decorations, brow henna has a processing time of only 25-55 minutes, instead of a few hours.
Henna Tinting vs. Ordinary Brow Tinting
Compared to ordinary eyebrow tint, such as Refectocil, henna tints the hair and also the skin. The color can stay up to 6 weeks on the hair and 2-3 weeks on the skin. Ordinary eyebrow tint can last 2-4 week on the hair and only a day or two on the skin. Everybody's skin retention to the product is different; skin conditions/skin types all come into play when estimating how long the color will last.
How it's done!
First we clean the brow area and remove any makeup and oil. Then we will agree on your custom shape and color. Then we will shape, wax, then trim the brows. Finally we apply the henna to your brows, let it process and remove.
On many clients the color is perfect right after the application, however, if there is some warmth in the color, it can cool down as quick as 10 minutes and on some clients, it can take an hour or two for the warmth to fade. This depends on the colors used and the hair color of the client. We use the Supercillium Henna that also contains nutrients to help restore hair growth and the natural shape of the eyebrows.
