    Color Your Brows with Eyebrow Tint

    When coloring a clients hair, I often get asked about eyebrow tint. Colorists have been using hair color for years to tint eyebrows to make them match someone’s preferred hair color or to deepen the color making the eyebrows pop and become more obvious.
    “Eyebrow Tint Tips” Since hair color is not recommended (or safe) for use around the eye area, eyebrow tint was created. Eyebrow tint is color made specifically for the eyebrows. It is typically used to darken eyebrow color, but there are eyebrow tint kits available to lighten eyebrows as well. There are many reasons to alter eyebrow shapes and colors. Some of the most popular reasons that I hear in the salon include:

    • ‘My eyebrows are too light; they are almost invisible on my face.’
    • For this situation, I would suggest using eyebrow tint to subtly darken eyebrow color to a light to medium brown.
    • ‘I am beginning to see gray hair in my eyebrows, can I color my brows?’
    • Yes, this is a great reason to use an eyebrow tint. Many of us who are trying to hide gray hairs on our head don’t expect to see them on our eyebrows, so this is a great option to conceal them.
    • ‘I want to keep my hair color very light, but my eyebrows are so dark, won’t that look strange?’
    • I don’t hesitate to tell people in this situation that they are able to lighten brows safely and easily if they prefer it that way. They can use an eyebrow tint lightening kit to do so.

    If you are too nervous to attempt a DIY eyebrow tint at home, many salon and spas offer Eyebrow tinting. Whether you do it or have a professional perform the eyebrow tint, the color should last about six weeks (the same as a typical hair color lasts). For those of you who are even too scared to have a professional do an eyebrow tint service, there is always non-permanent color options like colored eyebrow pencils and powders that can be used to help alter the color of your eyebrows.

    2. Be warned! I have tried the DIY tints and they burn. I would much rather spend the extra money on this professional service at a salon.
