HOW DOES HENNA DIFFER FROM A REGULAR BROW TINT?
Regular tinting involves a hit dye that has a peroxide oxidant to activate the colour, it dyes the hairs very well, whereas Henna stains the skin more effectively. Henna looks more matte and powdery, whereas tinting grabs on the hairs a little more and appears a little glossier.
WHY START HENNA BROWS?
I like to offer my clientele as much diversity with eyebrow treatments as possible. As an eyebrow specialist, you need to understand that peoples preferences for their arches can differ so much from person to person. There is not one “perfect look”. Also, Henna is a great natural alternative for people with sensitive skin types.
WHO IS HENNA BEST FOR? (I.E. WHAT TYPE OF BROWS?)
Low maintenance on the go types who want to get out the door without “filling in” their brows with a makeup product. Sensitive or dry skin types are suited to henna or anyone who wants a thicker looking brow without the commitment of eyebrow tattooing.
WHAT DOES A HENNA BROW TREATMENT ACTUALLY ENTAIL?
Your artist will consult on colour and shape then apply a barrier cream to the area of the skin where you don’t want the henna to dye. You can actually create the illusion of the shape you’re after by staining the skin into this shape. The henna is applied and takes 10-15 mins to set into the skin. It is then wiped away and you are good to go!
DOES IT COME IN DIFFERENT SHADES?
Yes, over 8 shades from platinum blonde right through to black, as well as modifiers such as amber and pure ash.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Between 2 – 4 weeks depending on oiliness or sweating.
ARE THERE ANY TIPS FOR MAINTAINING YOUR HENNA BETWEEN VISITS?
Don’t cleanse the brows with coarse products such as intense toners or active ingredients and don’t moisturise them!
