If you’re a fan of regular brow tint, then you’re going to love henna brows.

Here’s what you need to know.

What Is It?

Henna gives you defined brows that last weeks longer than regular brow tint. It’s a quick, easy, and painless way to get perfect brows.

How It Works

As shown in the video on the right, an aesthetician applies henna, an all natural dye that temporarily stains the brow hairs as well as the skin beneath the brows.

The dye is applied using hairlike strokes with a brush to create the illusion of depth and fullness. Any sparseness is temporarily filled, giving you the look of lush, full brows.

After the dye is applied and you have your desired brow shape, wax is applied near the brows to remove any stray hairs. Finally, a spool brush is used to fluff the brows. The end result: gorgeous brows.

Henna tint plus brow shaping is $40.

How Long It Lasts

Regular brow tint lasts about a week. But henna brows last weeks longer depending on the health and state of your skin. Oily skin or skin that’s in a state of constant shedding won’t hold pigment well. As a result, their results may not last as long as someone who doesn’t have the same skin conditions.

For more info on the types of skin conditions and how they can affect your skin’s ability to retain pigment, check out Am I Candidate for Microblading? It’s a great read if you’re also considering microblading, too!

Changing Your Hair Color? Don't Forget to Update Your Brows!

Raise your hand if you've ever neglected your brows when making a huge color change. 

Blonde, brown, red, black... Switching up your hair color can be fun and transformative. But sometimes we're so distracted by our glossy new color that we forget all about our brows. Your eyebrows should accentuate, not clash with your hair color. Whenever you do a dramatic hair color change, don't forget to update your brows too! 

Leave It To the Professionals

While it might be tempting to dye them yourself DON'T! Leave your eyebrows to the professionals. Your brows are more delicate than your hair. You can't apply the same hair dye to your brows. You run the risk of irritating your skin, and even worse, singeing your brows off. And unless you're Cara Delevingne, no one can pull off the "no brow look." 

Brow Shade 101

Going Darker: The goal is bolder and richer brows. Focusing on the darkest shade of your hair will bring out the undertones of your brows, for a lush, full, healthy brow color.  

Colorful Hair: For cotton candy pink, blue, or rainbow hair, refrain from matching your eyebrows to your hair color. You want some contrast, plus there's a good chance your hair color will fade (or you may even change it again), making the upkeep more trouble than it's worth. Instead, opt for finding the darkest hair on your head and matching your brows to that. 

La Belle Brow Tint

La Belle Studio offers three shades of tint and application is $15. Our tint typically lasts about a week, making it more of a special occasion, or add-on treat for a service you're already getting (e.g. Lash Tint and Lift).
