Even though eyelash extensions are currently one of the most popular cosmetic treatments around the globe, not every woman can afford to have them done. Women with especially weak and fragile natural eyelashes may find eyelash extensions to be too heavy for them, making wearing them uncomfortable. What’s more, heavier extensions and volume methods of application may be dangerous to such clients, making their eyelashes fall out prematurely and causing their eyelids to droop. However, there is a perfect solution for such clients - brow and eyelash tinting.
What is eyelash and eyebrow tinting?
Eyelash and eyebrow tinting is the perfect solution for clients who cannot wear eyelash extensions or do not want to commit themselves to eyebrow microblading. It is also great for those who are sick of applying makeup and mascara every day. The treatment makes use of henna, a natural dye, which is applied to the eyelashes and eyebrows in the form of a gel pigment that does not tint the skin and leaves the hair with gorgeous colours. With this simple and quick procedure, you will be able to give your clients gorgeous eyelashes and highlighted eyebrows in no time!
How to ensure the best results during tinting?
One of the most important factors that dictate the quality of every cosmetic treatment is the quality of used supplies. The same goes for brow tinting and eyelash tinting - you need a high-quality dye for the effects to stay long and be satisfactory to your clients. At Noble Lashes, you will find a variety of henna dyes for eyelashes and eyebrows, including a range of colours to choose from. If you want to quickly supply your salon with all of the necessary supplies for tinting, we recommend getting a brow tinting kit or an eyelash tinting kit - all found at Noble Lashes.
What do I need for brow and eyelash tinting?
The most basic thing you will need to tint your client’s eyebrows and eyelashes is a professional dye. Noble Lashes provides a choice of RefectoCil, Xenna and HairWell products - all are renowned producers of henna products. When applied by a professional stylist, the effects of tinting can stay visible for up to 6 weeks. Apart from the dye itself, you will also need liquid oxidant to dilute the dye. After mixing the dye with the liquid oxidant, the mixture is ready to be applied to the eyebrows or eyelashes.
Attract more clients with tinting!
If you are struggling with attracting more clients to your salon, it may be a good idea to expand your offer. Most cosmetic salons offer simple eyelash and eyebrow procedures - applying makeup, eyelash extensions, and general eyelash and eyebrow care. If you want to beat the competition, you will have to offer more than they do! Introduce eyebrow and eyelash tinting to your clients and show them the glamorous results of the treatment. By using high-quality supplies, you will be able to guarantee satisfactory results to your clients.
The benefits of henna tinting
There are many benefits to eyebrow and eyelash tinting - one of them not having to wear mascara and contour the eyebrows every day. Many clients are sick of having to apply extensive makeup every morning, only to wash it down in the evening. With tinted eyelashes, your clients will not have to apply mascara anymore - the natural eyelashes will be full of colour and look glamorous without needing mascara. Moreover, while many treatments require your clients to keep their lashes away from moisture and steam, tinting still allows your clients to go to a swimming pool or sauna.
One of the most comfortable cosmetic treatments - tinting
Your clients will remain comfortable not only outside of your salon, but also during the treatment itself. Tinting your client’s eyelashes is an extremely quick procedure, often taking less than half of an hour to accomplish. After applying the dye to eyebrows or eyelashes, it only needs 5 to 10 minutes to settle, after which it needs to be washed off. Make sure you do not let the dye settle for longer, or the results might turn out too dark for your client. Before the treatment, remember to check if your client is allergic to any of the ingredients of the dye.
What is henna?
While it is common knowledge that henna is made from the henna plant, not many are actually aware of the process of making a dye from it. The henna plant alone will not tint the skin. Instead, it needs to be processed into a paste. First, the leaves of the plant are dried and crushed, then mixed with water and left for at least 48 hours. The resulting mixture can be used to paint semi-permanent tattoos on the body, which disappear after a couple of weeks, or even dye the hair. After it is applied, henna needs to dry in order to tint the skin. The longer the henna stays on the skin, the darker the effects are - the same goes for eyelashes and eyebrows.
Is tinting safe?
While eyelash and eyebrow tinting is a simple, non-invasive procedure which is perfectly safe for most customers, you need to take precautions to ensure that the treatment itself is safe. Always work in a sterile environment and carefully disinfect your workplace after every treatment. It is also extremely important to disinfect and clean all of your tools and accessories after every procedure, especially if you are going to use them again. Do not apply henna dyes to eyelash extensions - if you need extensions of a different colour, use another type of extensions.
Contraindications to eyelash and eyebrow tinting
Even though tinting is a safe treatment which will work fine for the vast majority of clients out there, there are still some contraindications to its use of which you need to be aware of. If your client’s eyebrows have been recently shaped or regulated, you should wait at least a couple of days until the irritation fades. Never apply henna dye on irritated skin or if the skin has any wounds or cuts around the eyebrows and eyelids. Redness and swelling of the eyelids, as well as any eye infections and diseases, are also contraindications to the treatment.
Always test your clients for allergies!
As is customary with any cosmetic treatment, always check whether your clients are allergic to any of the ingredients of the tinting dye. The best way to confirm that is to apply a small amount of dye to your client’s arm and see whether the area gets red and irritated with time. The allergy check should be done a couple of days prior to the treatment to make sure that nothing goes wrong. By using professional supplies you are lowering the risk of any adverse effects.
