Henna For Your Brows Is The Next Big Thing

I never do much to eyebrows, my genetics blessed me with great ones. I do still understand the need for eyebrow maintenance. Great eyebrows really do enhance the face, kind of like how great curtains bring life to a room. Okay, maybe not, but eyebrow maintenance is important, and some seem to take is very seriously. 

2015 has definitely been the year of the overdone eyebrow and I certainly have been turned off by the many techniques and weird arches. The pursuit is a fuller eyebrow with an arch, because clearly thin eyebrows are out. A new alternative, Henna for eyebrows!

Yes, it’s not just for your hair growing from your scalp anymore. For those of you that may have sparse eyebrows, Henna tinting is a process that allows you to go without having to fill them in with brow pencils and shadows for weeks!
The process is relatively similar to a henna tattoo application. Your brow tech will clean and shape your eyebrows as usual or you can come with your eyebrows previously arched. Then your henna color is assessed. Henna comes in various shades and based on your hair color, your tech will choose a shade that looks most natural for you. (You don’t want hair that is too dark! You risk the chance of appearing too dramatic almost as if you drew on brows with black ink)
The brow tech will then apply vaseline or another oil-based product to keep the Henna from staining your skin. Now the fun part- the henna application. The henna is applied to your brows in your desired shape.

Here's a video that shows the whole process

So do you think henna tint is something you’d try on your brows?
