Tinting is the temporary dying of eyebrows / eyelashes and the skin beneath. When applied to your eyebrows, it gives a filled in appearance, and when applied to your lashes, it gives the appearance of mascara.

Professional tinting is a lot safer than attempting to dye your lashes / brows at home, which many women do. Putting any sort of chemical near the eyes can be dangerous if you are not an expert in the area.

Our beauty therapists have over 10 years of experience working in 5* resorts, luxurious spas, and high-end salons. They use a special vegetable-based stain to make sure that no damage is done to your eye area.

You should consider tinting your eyebrows when:

  • You have changed your hair colour: As a general rule, you should aim to have your brows two or three shades lighter / darker than your hair colour. As such, if you change your hair colour, you should match your eyebrows to make the change look more natural.
  • You have grey or light hairs in your eyebrows: Although plucking the odd grey hair from the scalp is fine, plucking hairs from the relatively sparse eyebrow area can produce bald patches and leave the brow looking untidy. For this reason, you should have an eyebrow tint instead, which simply dyes the grey hairs and makes your brows look full.
  • You want thicker looking eyebrows: Pale, translucent hairs can make your eyebrows look thin and untidy. Dying them a darker colour will make them appear thicker and create a neat, shapely brow.
  • You want to add definition to your face: It’s amazing what a difference a nice pair of shapely tinted eyebrows can make - Having neat, defined eyebrows frames the eyes, enhances facial symmetry, and creates an attractive high-contrast look.

If you have light eyelashes, are allergic to mascara, or if you just want to give your lashes a boost, eyelash tinting could be a great option.

Try to arrange your appointment at least 3-4 weeks after your last eyebrow waxing / tweezing appointment (the longer the better). This is because, the more that we have to work with, the better we can make you brows look.
