Eyelash and Eyebrow tinting involves carefully dying the eyelashes and/or brow hairs with safe, effective tints, to give them a natural, luscious, darker appearance. Only vegetable-based, semi-permanent stain should be used, and the solution mixed up immediately before applying, so as to get the greatest effect.
Hair dye is never applied, neither is the same peroxide that is used to tint the hair, as it is too strong and the chances of damaging the skin and hair follicle is extremely high.
Because tinting involves the use of chemicals, it may be necessary to carry out a patch test before you perform any tinting procedures on any client that has a history of skin sensitivity. A patch test is a procedure whereby the operator applies a very small amount of the chemical product they will be using during the treatment to their client to see if they will react to it.
There are safety concerns and precautions when it comes to applying chemical concoctions so close to the eye, so comprehensive training is absolutely necessary to avoid any mishaps or disaster stories. If done correctly, lash and brow tinting is one of the most effective treatments you can give your client to enhance their natural beauty and accentuate their facial features.
