Specilality Henna Brows from the Makeup Lounge
Henna brows are a form of eyebrow tinting that is used to stain the skin beneath the brow hairs.
The purpose of this is to cast a shadow or create an illusion of depth and fullness in the area, visually filling in any sparseness.
Henna is a natural dye made from a plant known as hina or the henna tree.
The Difference Between Henna and Regular Eyebrow Tint.
Henna tint not only colours the hair, but it also stains the skin. It penetrates the hair follicle differently; making the tint on the hair last longer than regular tint (roughly six to eight weeks as opposed to just four weeks with regular eyebrow tint).
Do I need a patch test?
Yes, absolutely! The patch test needs to be done at least 48 hours before treatment.
What’s the difference between regular tint and henna brows?
Regular eyebrow tint will only tint the hairs and lasts anywhere from 2-4 weeks. It is great for those that are happy with their eyebrow shape and don’t require any other shaping.
Henna brows produce longer lasting results. Lasting up to 6 weeks on the hairs, it also tints the skin which is great if you would like a better shape to your brows. It fills in anywhere you have gaps.
