How long does the color last?
Approximately 3 to 4 weeks. Chlorine and daily use and removal of waterproof mascara can shorten the life of the color.
How should I prep for my Tinting appointment?
Prep mainly only applies to the lashes. So for Lash Tinting, PLEASE ARRIVE COMPLETELY FREE OF MASCARA.
Does it sting when you're applying the color?
It's possible to feel some discomfort if your eyes water causing the color to seep or during the removal phase. But usually, it's a very quick and comfortable service.
My eyebrows have been Microbladed. Is it still ok for me tint them?
Absolutely! As long as you have completed all your microblading appointments (the initial appointment and the touch up appointment) and are completely past your few weeks of healing, it's totally fine. I have clients who still tint even though they have permanent make up. Sometimes, if you have really blonde hairs or grey, it can start to look a bit strange with the microblading or permanent make up. So I will usually try to match up the color of your dye to the color used for your microblading.
What if I wear contacts?
You will need to remove your contacts prior to your service.
What is brow lightening?
Some people have very dark eyebrows that overpower their face. The tendency is to want to thin the brows out with wax. But a better solution is to subtly lighten the color of the brows to lessen their intensity. In some cases, I may even redeposit a color over the top of the lightened brows to fine tune the color.
Is there any special post care instructions?
Yes, you will want to go easy with your eyebrows when cleansing to extend the life of the dye. Obviously, if you scrub, peel etc at that area, the color is going to disappear much faster. Also exercise caution when applying any type of skin care products containing exfoliators (topical acne medications, retinol, lightening products, alpha hydroxy acids, etc) Keep all of these away from the brows as they will strip them of their color.
