How is Eyelash tinting carried out?
As with hair dye, it is necessary to have a patch test performed at least 48 hours prior to tinting, to ascertain that there is no sensitivity to the dye and to ensure that no allergic reaction will occur.
Once it has been established that no reaction will occur, you and your therapist will discuss the colour/shade of dye to be used to best suit your hair colour and complexion.
The therapist will then place cotton pads underneath your closed eyelashes and will apply the dye which will stay on for approximately 10 minutes. All of this time is spent with your eyes closed. After this time, the dye is removed with damp cotton pads. The whole process takes around fifteen minutes.
The effects normally last for four to six weeks but re-tints can be done as and when necessary.
The same process can also be used on eyebrows to darken them and make them more prominent.
