- What is brow and lash tinting?
There are lots of ways to change the look of your eyebrows – tweezing, waxing, shaping, etc. – and ways to enhance your lashes – mascara, lash curlers, primer, etc. But what the heck is brow and lash tinting? Simply put, brow and eyelash tinting uses semi-permanent vegetable dye to add color, shape and thickness to dull eyebrows and lashes in need of some new life.
Is it safe to tint your lashes and brows?
Guest who are interested in the brow and lash tinting procedures often wonder whether they’re safe. The short answer is yes, as long as it’s done by “a well-trained and highly experienced esthetician or hair colorist.”
It’s important to note that eyebrow tinting is illegal in Massachusetts, and the FDA has not approved any dyes for eyelash tinting or eyebrow tinting. It’s highly recommended that you skip out on buying the “DIY” or “at home” brow and lash dyeing products, as they could cause a severe chemical reaction. It’s best to leave the procedures to professionals.
How does eyelash tinting work?
Eyelash tinting gives added definition and makes mascara unnecessary until the tinted eyelashes fall out and new ones grow in. Usually, that takes about four to six weeks.
What are the benefits of eyelash tinting?
It’s a quick and inexpensive process.
- It’s great for summer, when you want to hop in the pool or the ocean but you don’t want your mascara to run. Tinted eyelashes won’t run while you’re in the water.
- For light-colored or graying eyelashes, this procedure is a quick fix to darken your lashes and make them bolder.
Eyebrow tinting helps people with “barely there” brows to achieve a bolder look that can redefine their whole face. Eyebrow tinting typically lasts between six and eight weeks. When hair falls out, so does the tint.
Happy brow and lash tinting!
