All About Henna Brows

Henna Brows: The latest trend in the eyebrow shaping scene.

Colouring and tinting eyebrows is a well known practice, but the Henna Brows treatment is rapidly becoming the go-to option  for both brow artists and clients.

It’s a type of tinting that temporarily stains the skin as well as colouring the hair and it’s a long-lasting solution (up to  6 weeks!).

Known as a natural dye for centuries, henna, has been used for hair colouring, body art, tattoos and make up. In the past it was only available in a limited range of colours (many of you might associate henna with those typical orange/red hues), but nowadays it’s available in a wider selection of colours and it’s possible to find a perfect match with your natural colour and skin tone.

The Treatment

Like all other types of treatments that involve the brow area, the first step is always cleansing and removing any make up, moisturiser, cream or oils from the skin. Starting with a blank canvas will make it easier to find the perfect shape and prepare the skin for the application.

The next step is all about shape. We all know how important finding the right shape of eyebrow is, and how it can make or break your look. Before applying the henna paste on the eyebrows, there are measured and shaped carefully. It’s a very precise exercise because once the henna is on, it will start staining the skin, and we want to avoid any mistakes. No panic though. Just like it happens when you go to the hairdresser to freshen up your roots, a protective paste is applied around the shape of the eyebrow, in case there’s any spillage (which there won’t be, we promise!).

Last step is the actual application of the henna onto the defined brow area. Once applied it will need to sit for 10-20 minutes, to allow enough time for the colour to develop and stain the skin, creating that eyebrow shadow effect. When the time is up, the henna is wiped away and we can move to the finishing touches: waxing, threading, plucking any stray hair, to achieve a high definition look.

Should you get Henna Brows too?

This treatments is great for people with thin sparse hair, or for those who have gone a bit wild with their tweezers and are now trying to remedy the damage.

It’s perfect for you if you want a treatment that is natural and less harmful for your skin, but still get an amazing result.

And if you like to have tidy eyebrows, but don’t like the upkeep of normal tinting, this treatment is definitely the best option for you. Henna Brows can last twice as long as normal brow tinting, up to 6 weeks.
