Eyebrow tinting is the process of applying semi-permanent dye to enhance, shape, and define your brows. It gives the appearance of thicker, more youthful looking brows. Eyebrow tinting works on skin types, skin tones, and hair colours. We're not making brows darker, we’re just matching your natural colour. Your eyebrows will look defined without a slick of makeup.
If you’re not lucky enough to have naturally bushy brows and luscious lashes then tinting is a quick and easy way to make your eyes look larger without the need for makeup. Tinting makes your brows look thicker, darker and longer, and the added structure adds volume to sparser brows.
Eyelash Tinting gives the eyes definition and lets you go without mascara, at least for a few weeks until eyelashes fall out and are replaced by new ones (this happens naturally whether they’re tinted or not).
Brow Lamination is a process of restructuring the brow hairs to give you a uniform, full eyebrow shape and keep them in a desired shape.
This is the ultimate solution for eyebrows that do not have symmetry where the hairs follow a different pattern, or have any gaps in between said hairs, or who want that groomed, brushed-up look.
With lamination we can realign the brows in such a way to give you the desired shape you want.
This treatment solves the messy brow issue, creates volume and fullness, while giving you a sleek well-kept brow shape for up to TWO MONTHS!
Most notably, it’s a great alternative to microblading, which can be painful and works on the skin rather than the hairs.
Instead, lamination helps to add colour and definition to brows without any after-effects that take time to heal.
So don't let visions of mundane workplace admin put you off – this is the sort of laminating you'll want to get on board with.
This new microblade alternative treatment claims to tame unruly brows and leave them looking full, defined and beautifully shaped for months with no effort.
AT THE SALON
You’ll first consult with our specialist to discuss how full and natural you want your brows and/or lashes to look. You can choose a colour which compliments or contrasts with your hair and eye colour and skin tone. If you’re a contact lens wearer, you will have to remove them. Then the specialist will prep the area, cleaning the brows and applying a thin layer of petroleum jelly around them to prevent any accidental skin staining. The dye is then mixed and carefully applied, first in the direction of how your brow hairs grow and then a second layer is applied in the opposite direction. You shut your eyes, and the tint is applied to lashes with a fine brush, and allowed to set for at least 10 minutes. With your eyes still shut, we begin to remove the dye with a cotton pad dampened with water. This might take a few minutes of gentle strokes and several pads. The dye is left on for a few minutes to attain optimal colour, then any excess is removed with a damp paper towel. If you see dye on the skin underneath your brows, that will wash away after a day or two.
It might be a good idea to schedule your first appointment on a Friday, so you can monitor the results over the weekend.
The effect lasts for around 6 weeks - the time it takes for the hair to grow or fall out. A strong look will require a more frequent maintenance. You’ll want to avoid getting your brows wet for 12 hours after getting the treatment done and to clean around the area with gel or cream-based cleansers. Your brows will stand out and look fuller right away. The tint lasts anywhere from three to six weeks. To maintain colour, we suggest you to come in every four to six weeks for touch-ups. Please try to avoid exfoliating or use of any oil-based products in that area as it will cause the tint to fade faster. Also avoid any products that might further irritate the thin eyebrow skin, such as retinoids and retinols. It is good to apply a thin layer of Vaseline or Aquaphor to the surrounding skin as a form of protection barrier between the dye and your skin.
