What is the difference between Eyebrow Henna and Eyebrow Tint on your menu?
With the Tint, I am using a traditional dye and peroxide mixture and it is designed to only tint the hairs, not the skin. Henna will not only dye the hairs, but will leave a stain ( for approx up to 2 weeks) on the skin behind the brow, giving the brow a fuller and filled in look. In terms of longevity, Tint lasts up to 4 weeks on the hair, Henna can last 6-7 weeks on the hair.
How much is it?
Currently offering it at an introductory rate of $25, but this will be going up in January 2018.
Why do you offer this and NOT microblading??
I've had a lot of clients express concern about all the permanent/semi permanent brow services that have gained popularity. This allows you to have that same rich filled in look, but with out the 2 year (or more) commitment 😀
SIDE NOTE: So, I have had MANY MANY requests to offer microblading. And don't get me wrong, I think I'd be pretty damn good at it...LOL. Here's the deal....my booking schedule is already pretty crazy full. Now, if I add microblading, the bookings for that (most of which will be new people) will absolutely bombard my schedule, therefore alienating and pushing out my regular clients.....the very people who have been loyal to me for several years. Not cool. I have ZERO interest in adding a service just to make a quick buck. I'm not gonna say it's completely off the table, but I would have to be able to figure out how to schedule it and not inconvenience my current clientele. They mean everything to me and are my first priority. Plus, to be honest, I wanna give this trend a minute to shake out so I can make an informed decision on whether or not it's a right fit for me.
How do I know which one I might want to book?
If you are someone who does not normally wear any brow cosmetics (or very little) and prefers a more subtle look to your brows, then start with the Eyebrow Tint.
If you are accustomed to a very defined and filled in eyebrow and like a more rich color, go with the Eyebrow Henna.
What is Henna?
Henna comes from the leaves of a plant known as Lawsonia inermis. The form I work with is a powder and it is mixed with a purified water.
Can Henna be used on the lashes as well?
No, Henna is not safe or suitable for lashes. But fret not, I have awesome tint for that!
Is there any special post care instructions?
Yes, you will want to go easy with your eyebrows when cleansing to extend the life of the stain on the skin in particular. Obviously, if you scrub, peel etc at that area, the stain behind the brow is going to disappear much faster. Also exercise caution when applying any type of skin care products containing exfoliators (topical acne medications, retinol, lightening products, alpha hydroxy acids, etc) Keep all of these away from the brows as they will strip them of their color.
If I want Henna, does it matter whether I book Eyebrow Tint or Eyebrow Henna?
YES!!!! It DOES matter. In terms of length of service, these are not interchangeable. The Henna service takes me longer. So please be sure to select the correct item on my webscheduler.
