Full, bold eyebrows have been the trend for a while now and it doesn’t look like it will be going anywhere anytime soon.
For those of us who are not naturally blessed with perfectly shaped, thick eyebrows or luscious eyelashes, there are plenty of products and treatments out there that are designed to give our brows and lashes just the boost you’re seeking. But, which one should you try?
Let’s take a look at the pros and cons for a few of the available brow and lash treatment options.
Eyebrow tinting involves dyeing your eyebrows to make them look more defined.
This is a good option if you already like your eyebrow’s shape and thickness, but want to make them look more defined without having to use a product every day. Many women have blonde tips to their eyebrows, so when the hairs get tinted they look fuller. Make sure your specialist has had adequate training.
The color only lasts around four to six weeks, so if you want to keep the intensity, it’s recommended that you schedule regular touch-ups to prevent fading over time.
Synthetic hairs can be individually glued to your brows and the skin next to your hair follicles for a fuller look. This is not a service we offer at our practice.
When done correctly, eyebrow extensions appear totally natural and are therefore ideal for those undergoing cancer treatment or those with alopecia. The results are three-dimensional and look great for special occasions like weddings or photo-shoots.
Although some claim to last up to three weeks, many eyebrow extensions only last a few face washes. You will also need to be very careful when applying skincare products and makeup to avoid dislodging them. Finally, extensions can be quite expensive, so perhaps are best saved for special occasions.
Loved for generations, the eyebrow pencil is a standby product used for drawing in hairs on the eyebrow.
If you’re looking for a less permanent solution, this low maintenance option is for you. The pencil is also great for filling in any gaps.
If you’re heavy-handed, be careful your eyebrows don’t look drawn in thereby giving a fake look. Pencils can look be slightly waxy.
This is a permanent solution that involves tattooing eyebrows onto the skin.
Good news! You’ll never have to worry about your brows again as this method is permanent; as is any tattooing method. In addition to choosing your desired color and shape, tattooed eyebrows are sweat and water resistant.
Giving that this is a permanent treatment, it’s crucial that it’s performed by a highly qualified professional. Be sure to explore all other avenues because if something goes wrong and you are unhappy with the results, correcting it can be painful and costly.
Eyelash tinting involves carefully dying the lashes with safe, natural tints, to give them a luscious, darker, and natural appearance. Many different eyelash tint colors (including browns, blues, grays, and blacks) are available, so we can complement your skin and hair coloring perfectly.
If you feel you can’t live without mascara or want that made-up look before you even get out of bed, then eyelash tinting is for you! It’s an ideal solution to giving you tantalizing, dark eyes without having to spend extra time to apply layers of mascara.
Before any lash tinting procedure, you should attend a consultation with an eyelash tinting practitioner. At least two days before your eyelash tinting treatment, you need to undergo a patch test to ensure there are no allergic reactions or sensitivities to a product. Then, your eyelash tinting practitioner will recommend the best color that complements your skin type and hair color to produce the best results.
