what is tinting
A brow tint is a service that can be done alone or added to your brow wax to alter the colour of your brows making them a more preferable colour to yourself, to add definition and to help frame your face.
A lash tint will follow the same process to make your lashes appear darker, thicker and longer. I will mix a semi-permanent tint solution and apply it to your eyebrow or eyelash hairs.
We can select your preference of colour and I will advice what I think will suit your face and skin tone most. Colours range from blonde, light brown, dark brown, black, blue-black and grey. We can mix colours together to create a personalised colour for your face too. A patch test will be required at least 48 hours before your treatment.

Patch Testing Requirement’s
- I will require you to have had a patch test at least 48 hours before your appointment. This will involve applying a small amount of tint onto your skin and seeing if any kind of reaction occurs. Any kind of reaction must be shared with me including redness, itchiness, rash, swelling or bruising (or any other symptoms you may feel is linked).
- Your patch test must have been completed within the previous 6 months or we will need to repeat it. If you have had a tinting treatment within the last 6 months then we will not need to repeat a patch test as the tint will have been in contact with your skin and will be sufficient at monitoring for a reaction.
- If you have any changes in your medical condition, started new treatments or are pregnant then we will need to repeat a patch test regardless of the time since your last tint treatment. This is because your body changes and could react to the tint.
- If you are older then 13 but younger then 16 you will need a parent or legal guardian to accompany you for your first treatment only.

To never feel rushed!
- Tint shades can be daunting especially with new client’s that are new to me or tint treatment’s. This is why I allow extra time to go back and forward with shade by shade until we are happy with the end result.

- A mix of blue and black tint together can credit a more vibrant pop for your eyelashes. Why not give it try by asking me on your next appointment.
- Avoid oily products on your eyebrows and eyelashes when possible, Oils and rubbing the area even with water will make the tint fade quicker.
Most frequent questions and answers
Usually yes, we will need to carry out a new patch test before every treatment throughout your pregnancy as hormone levels can fluctuate dramatically and cause your bodies sensitivity to change and you may develop a reaction when you’ve never had one before. Likewise, you may display a reaction at one point in your pregnancy then not display one at another time. Most women remain fine to keep their appointment.
I will also be conscious of the time spent on your back while pregnant, I will do my best to ensure your comfort throughout the appointment and if preferred we may be able to do your appointment sat up. My fully electric, four-motion couch can also be adjusted to provide you with a comfortable position for your treatment.
*please note, if a reaction were to occur during pregnancy then please consult your GP, midwife or a pharmacist before taking any medications.
