How to know which eyebrow tint to recommend to clients
Clients often walk into salons with a rough idea of what they’re looking for when it comes to haircuts, eyebrow shaping and colours. But, they also lack expert knowledge on how to make these ideas work. It’s your job to listen to their beauty requests and turn them into a reality. However, not every client knows what will suit them — steering them in the right direction so they aren’t left feeling unhappy with the results (even though they might have asked for it themselves!) is an art you must master.
Choosing the right shade of eyebrow tint for clients depends on their skin tone, their current hair colour and their own personal ideas on the look they’re going for. As a general rule of thumb, a colour that’s a shade (or even two shades) darker than their natural hair colour usually works, but there are exceptions to the rule. Here’s how to select which eyebrow tint colour is best for blondes, brunettes and redheads:
Pale blonde eyebrow hairs tend to look sparse and light. Darkening them by a single shade will instantly make them look heavier and give them a better shape, as well as accentuate their contrast against any highlights running through your client’s hair. Richer, warmer tones are best for darker blondes where as platinum blondes are best sticking to a golden shade.
The same rules go for brunettes — a warm brown eyebrow works brilliantly against light brown hair where as client’s with chocolate-brown hair can go a bit darker and opt for a richer tone. Either way, the gentle addition of colour will enhance the brows and make them a real feature by lending them drama and definition.
Redheads can have anything from pale blonde through to reddish, or auburn brown eyebrows. Assess this base colour first before deciding which tint to use. Copper toned redheads work well with darker copper brows but deeper redheads with auburn locks suit brown tones.
Our new range of eyebrow tints come in four primary shades that you can blend together to create bespoke shades for each unique client. They’re dead easy to mix together and apply. Plus the long-lasting effects help to make sparse eyebrows look thicker by adding definition and shape. What’s more, they double up as eyelash tints too! Check out this quick demo here!
