Tinting the eyebrows can significantly improve your appearance whether you have altered your hair color recently or just want to make some dramatic changes to your look.
But it is not a good idea to simply slap on some dye on the eyebrows as they are located conspicuously on your face. You should choose a qualified med spa with expertise in procedures such as eyebrow tinting.
Tinting the eyebrows involve dying the brow hairs. It does not involve any type of hair removal. However, it can definitely be done in combination with waxing, threading, or tweezing. The process of eyebrow tinting involves applying a dye to the eyebrows and letting it remain for approximately 10 minutes (in case of a vegetable dye).
But what does the brow tint do? It offers the brow hairs shine and evens out the color creating a smoother appearance. Motykie Medical Spa, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides eyebrow tinting to individuals in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
Suggestions for Brow Tinting
If you are considering a change in your brow color, the following suggestions may help:
Finishing Touches to a New Hair Color
In case you are considering a major change in your hair color and decide to go a few shades darker or lighter or go for an entirely different hue, your natural eyebrow color may not match well with the new hair color. An eyebrow tinting specialist at the med spa will explain that if they are coloring a client’s hair, they usually lighten their brows to an extent as well.
If the expert undertakes a single-process root touch-up, they typically tint the eyebrows with a shade that is one to one-and-a-half hues deeper that the new hair color. This has the benefit of accentuating both the skin tone and eye color.
Do Not Try to Aim for an Exact Match
Going too “matchy-matchy” may not be a good idea. While it does make sense to match the eyebrow color to your hair color, it may not be the most appropriate option. It may be more aesthetically appealing to have a subtle difference between both the shades.
According to tinting experts, you should never use the same hue on the brows as well as the hair. The completely matched look is not necessarily flattering.
Rather, when it comes to deeper shades, she uses the same shade on the eyebrows as she does on hair but also uses 10-volume peroxide on the brows for a contrasting effect. As far as lighter shades are concerned, she uses an oil lightener on the eyebrows for one minute to lighten their appearance.
Leave it to a Pro
While it can be tempting to purchase a boxed hair color at a pharmacy to tint your own eyebrows, but letting a professional med spa colorist work on your eyebrows is ideal. A pro not only has more control over the color in comparison to a box dye, but the application will also be safer in their expert hands.
Specialists recommend that this procedure should only be undertaken as a med spa service due to its proximity to the eyes. Motykie Medical Spa serves people from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for eyebrow tinting.
