Eyebrow Tinting @ Afreen Fashions Threading Salon Edinburgh (Brow Bar)

Eyebrow tint is a form of semi-permanent dye formulated specifically for use on the eyebrows.There are options to purchase DIY eyebrow tinting kits from most pharmacies and supermarkets, or alternatively you can choose to have your eyebrows tinted at either Afreen Fashion & Beauty in Leith Edinburgh, Nylla Fashion & Beauty in Gorgie Rd, Edinburgh or Nylla Fashion & Beauty in North High Street, Musselburgh for a more professional look.


One of the main questions asked is "why would I want to tint my eyebrows?"


Eyebrow tinting is a great option in the following circumstances:


1. You have changed your hair colour

Blondes and redheads who dye their hair a darker colour, tint their eyebrows to match the shade of their new style.. However, you should remember that your eyebrows don't necessarily have to match your hair colour precisely. You are generally advised to keep your eyebrows one or two shades lighter or darker than your hair colour.


2. You have noticed grey hairs in your eyebrows

Greying hair is a natural part of getting older. Whereas some people choose to let nature take its course, others prefer to conceal it. Although plucking the odd stray hair from the scalp is fine, plucking hairs from the relatively sparse eyebrow area is likely to produce unsightly bald patches and leave the brow looking misshapen. For this reason, you are advised to avoid the tweezers and opt instead for an eyebrow tint, which simply dyes the grey to match the surrounding hairs. 


3. You want thicker looking eyebrows

Pale, translucent hairs can make the eyebrows look thin and straggly. Tinting these hairs could reveal a neat, shapely brow you never even knew was there. Even though the thickness and denseness of your eyebrow hair can of course not be changed in the tinting session alone, the darker colour will make them appear naturally thicker.


4. You want to add definition to your face

It's amazing what a difference a nice pair of shapely eyebrows can make to the structure of the face. Having neat, defined eyebrows frames the eyes, boosts facial symmetry and creates an attractive high-contrast look.
