Tints
FAQs

IS TINTING SAFE? 

Yes! We use semi-permanent plant-based dyes that are all eye and skin safe.

 

IS IT PAINFUL?

Not at all! When tinting the brows or lashes just be sure to keep your eyes closed throughout the service.

 

WILL TINTING DAMAGE MY EYELASHES/BROWS?

No, not if you follow all of the pre and post care advice in the What to Expect Section.

 

HOW LONG DOES LASH/BROW TINTING LAST?

Tinting results typically last between 3-4 weeks. The dye is semi permanent but won’t fade fast. However, your lashes and brows will naturally fall out during the shedding process. When this happens new hairs grow in their place. This can cause the lashes and brows to look lighter in color. For the best result, we suggest using oil-free creams and makeup removers around your eye area as well as keeping any tinted areas dry for at least 24 hours after the service.

 

I HAVE VERY SHORT LASHES, CAN I STILL TINT THEM?

Of course! This could even make them look longer and thicker since we coat the lashes from root to tip! Sometimes you don’t even realize how much lash is even there until you get them tinted!

 

HOW MUCH BROW HAIR SHOULD I HAVE TO TINT?

As long as you have some hair for the tint to grab you should be good to go! If you have no hair, the tint may stain the skin but that look will not last more than a day or two.

 

IS TINTING A GOOD SUBSTITUTE FOR MICROBLADING?

No. Microblading and ombre brows are a type of permanent makeup that involves tattooing. While tinting may be a good way to see what your brows could look like with more color, it does not replicate the effects of permanent makeup. If you have no hair for the tint to hold on to, permanent makeup will be the route you would want to take. 

 

CAN I STILL WEAR MASCARA?

Yes! Tinting just adds color to your natural lashes but doesn’t curl them. If you don’t do a lash lift, you can still wear mascara to add curl and even more drama to the lashes.

 

WHAT IF I HAVE DARK LASHES/BROWS?

If you have naturally dark lashes, you may not see a huge color difference after tinting. Because we coat the entire hair shaft from root to tip, your lashes/brows will appear slightly darker and fuller. This is because the tips of your hairs are often lighter. There are also small, thinner hairs that are often much more light that the other hairs that get tinted which adds to the appearance of fullness. 

 

CAN I TINT MY GREY BROW/LASH HAIRS?

If you’re trying to tint grey or white hair, the process is a little trickier. These hairs are thicker and tend to be more resilient than other hairs. We have a few tricks up our sleeves that we can try though! You might not get full coverage on those hairs but even a slight tinting makes a big difference!

 

CAN I SHOWER OR WASH MY FACE AFTER LASH/BROW TINTING?

We recommend not getting the lashes/brow wet for 24 hours after tinting to be on the safe side. After that, you’re good to go! You should also avoid excessive touching or rubbing for 24 hours to avoid irritation. Chlorine can also shorten the wear of your tint, so be wary if you’re a regular swimmer.

 

IS IT GOOD TO BRUSH MY EYEBROWS?

Too much brushing can lift your tint and contribute to hairs falling out quicker than they should. It’s best to brush them into place and then apply a brow gel to set them all day long. You can find our favorites here! Opting for a tinted brow gel also helps to add a bit of color to hold you over when you’re due for your next tint appointment. 

 

WHAT SKINCARE CAN I USE AFTER BROW TINTING?

As part of your brow tint aftercare, we recommend that you avoid anything that contains a tan or gradual tanning agents. The tan can react with the tint, leaving your brows a greenish shade. Just avoid fake tan for three days before and after your service. Also try to avoid exfoliators and anti-aging skincare on the brows and lashes, this will cause them to fade more quickly.

 

HOW DO I KEEP MY TINT FROM FADING?

If you want seriously long-lasting results, it’s always best to go to a professional. At home dyes just aren’t the same, plus you don’t get the benefit of professional application or a colour match. Your appointment includes a custom-blended tint, mixed specifically to your requirements. Also, be sure to avoid exfoliating ingredients on the hairs that are tinted and follow all of the pre and post care advice in the What to Expect Section.
