Eyebrow tinting has become the number #1 alternative to eyebrow makeup and is accessible and available in pretty much all beauty salons around the globe.

The simple procedure similar to dying your hair – semi-permanent brow dye is applied to the eyebrow arch area in order to color the brow hairs. The results are completely natural and subtle, which is why brow tinting is a great option for grooming men’s eyebrows, too.

Tinting eyebrows takes only about 15 minutes, including consults. You can decide on how natural you want the look to be, and based on that, the technician will mix a customized dye blend. It is usually a shade or two lighter than your hair.

The brows stay tinted for 2-3 weeks, but the results can last as long as 6 weeks, depending on your skin type, skincare routine, and the amount of sunlight exposure your brows get. Its relatively cost effective and ranges around $20 – $30.

Brow tinting is a totally non-invasive procedure, as there is no damage to the skin at all. Brow dye doesn’t contain bleach, so it’s very gentle and doesn’t damage the hairs or the follicles. Although I would always recommend to enquire about the brand of the dye used at the salon and to get a 24-hour patch test.

If you don’t feel like searching for salons that do eyebrow tinting nearby, you can try waxing and tinting eyebrows at home as a more economical alternative! I would only recommend this option if you’re feeling super confident.

The first step, of course, is to shape your brows by waxing or tweezing the unwanted hairs. Then, apply the barrier in the form of petroleum jelly around the brows. Then, apply the dye, leave it on for no more than 5 minutes, and rinse it off, but make sure you don’t rub.

It is quite a straightforward procedure, but choosing an appropriate, quality product is key. Tinting eyebrows with hair dye isn’t advisable, since the formula is too harsh for the thin skin on our faces. So make sure you get a dye designed for eyebrows, an eyebrow tinting kit, or you can even use moustache dyes!

The greatest benefit is that its a great way to test the waters before committing to more permanent solution such as microblading.
