The benefits of adding henna to your treatment menu

The cosmetics market is growing at a rapid pace and every so often new and improved versions of treatments arise.

I believe henna dye has revolutionised the approach to semi-permanent eyebrow colouring. Not only do I love this treatment myself, but I also do it on a daily basis for my clients. 

Classic lash and brow tints usually have a limited number of colours and in many of the varieties available on the market, a synthetic and hydrogen peroxide base is required to create the mixture, which can weaken eyebrow hairs. 

Henna dyes are usually more natural and suitable for all skin types, including sensitive. Different colours can be mixed together to achieve a bespoke colour for the client. Good formulations dye not only the hair, but also the skin, creating a tattoo effect last can last from five to two weeks.

Look for a training provider that teaches comprehensive eyebrow styling, including eyebrow geometry and mapping. As a brow stylist, you will need to make very precise measurements, including drawing the perfect shape, width and length of the eyebrows, matched to the oval of the client’s face to create a personalised treatment for each client.
