Considering Brow Henna? We’re answering all your questions here!
48+ hours before your appointment!
We value safety to mold an excellent experience! A patch test is required at least 48 hours before your first brow henna appointment. This can be done at the front desk and will only take 15 minutes. Although rare, this ensures you will not have a reaction to the henna. A small henna patch will be applied on your wrist and be left on for a few minutes. If a reaction does occur it would be a slightly red or raised patch where the henna was applied.
Brow Henna time!
You’ve done your patch test and now your appointment has arrived! Each appointment begins with a consultation on your brow goals. You’ll be asked questions like, “What do/don’t you like about your brows?” At this point, the color and shape will be decided.
Starting with a clean base is essential to creating that flawless brow! A gentle cleanser and exfoliant cleans away any makeup, oil, or other substances on the brows. Next, your service provider mixes together a pre-measured amount of henna powder and rosewater solution to create the perfect henna consistency. An angled brush applies the henna tattoo solution. Using an angled brush allows your service provider to work in small controlled strokes. The henna must sit for 5 to 15 minutes on the brows before it’s wiped off. The process time will differ for each client, as it depends on how dark you wish for your brows to be. An oil application finishes the service to stimulate brow growth.
Why we love them!
Henna tattooing comes in a wide range of colors making the service a good fit for anyone! However, the more brow hair you have, the longer the henna will last. The henna dye stays on your actual skin for up to 2 weeks, and on the brow hairs for up to 6 weeks. Your skin products, skin type, and age affect how quickly your skin cells turn over, directly affecting how quickly the henna will fade. This is why we recommend rescheduling for every 4 to 6 weeks!
Considering a permanent brow tattooing? Brow henna is a great option to test the waters. Thus, giving you a better idea of what it’s like to have well done brows 24/7.
Having henna brows can help to enhance your natural brow shape. It’s also a great way to learn how to shape your brows with makeup. We recommend using our Brow Code pomade to continue filling in your brows as the henna fades. Check them out on our online shop!
We believe this is the perfect service before any big event or to make day to day life simple. Having hennaed brows makes getting ready easier and beautiful brows are essential!
