Last week I was invited down to Browhaus in Covent Garden to get my eyebrows threaded and tinted.
For years I’ve had my eyebrows tinted and would highly recommend it even if you have dark brows simply for definition although I would say it made very little difference to the actual colour of my already very dark, pretty much black brows.
I have been thinking about getting my eyebrows lightened for a while now, although I think dark brows looks fabulous I think mine were just a little too dark and almost overpowering, especially once I filled in any sparse areas.
Since I lightened my hair I decided to also lighten my eyebrows even though everyone on Twitter told me not to and I even had to convince the lady doing it.
She threaded my eyebrows first and plucked any extras which the thread didn’t remove before moving on to the bleach. Bleach is often a little harder to use then a colour tint as everyone’s hair lightens at different speeds but once we were happy with the colour she removed the bleach and trimmed my brows to finish.
Although I don’t think everyone will notice a huge difference I am very happy with both the shape and colour. I think that them being a little lighter means I feel I can fill them in more to the shape I want without the risk of them look too over the top (no scouse brow here!) but they still remain defined and quite dark. I think this colour is just a little softer and flattering compared to my harsh black brows, especially with lighter hair and now it’s spring.
A Browgraphy which is a colour (lighter or darker) and shaping is £20 which I think is very reasonable for a London Salon and I would highly recommend checking them out if you’re in the area.
