Eyebrow Tint VS Henna: What’s The Difference & Why You Should Offer Both
If you’re a professional eyebrow stylist you’ve probably had clients ask the question that is on everyone’s mind: ‘What’s the difference between eyebrow tint and henna?’
Although henna is a fairly knew defining and sculpting technique introduced to the beauty industry, the art of henna has been practiced for over 5,000 years! Henna was and still is widely used in Africa, the Middle East, and India to decorate the body (especially hands) in gorgeous designs. Ever since people recognised the power of henna, it has completely taken off in the brow industry - and we aren’t surprised! Henna is AMAZING (Brow Code Henna of course).
But… let’s not forget about our trusted friend, tint. Tinting is a traditional brow-defining method and that’s why professionals and clients prefer to stick to what they know and love.
Now, let’s get into why you’re really here. What is the difference between tint and henna and should you be offering both options to your clients?
Ahhh eyebrow tint… the beloved and dependable method of brow-defining. There’s a lot to love about tinting, but people seem to appreciate the fast application process. Your clients can have a quick visit to you and walk out with the brows of their dreams with a simple wax and tint. It’s seriously a win-win!
One thing we adore specifically about our Brow Tint is the highly-pigmented formula. Our luxurious range of colours makes it the perfect product for every skin tone. This means that our Brow Tint will work perfectly for all your client’s eyebrows. No need to worry about the colour not coming through because we got you!!
Eyebrow tint is a great option for any client’s looking for a natural finish while still wanting to enhance, shape, and define the brows. Trust us when we say your clients will fall in love with the results of an eyebrow tint.
One of the key differences between brow tint and henna is the staining period. Our Brow Code Tint stains the skin for up to one week and stains the brow hairs for up to four weeks post-treatment.
Oh, and did we mention our formula is vegan and cruelty-free?
Now let’s talk all things henna. Even though tint is what a lot of eyebrow specials know and love, henna has recently sparked interest and demand in the beauty industry.
Just like our tint formula, our henna consists of highly-pigmented, gorgeous colours, perfect for all skin tones. Henna is especially perfect for those who have slightly sparse eyebrows. Why you might be asking? Because henna stains the skin which helps create a powder-filled in look.
Even if you have clients with minimal eyebrow hairs, you can still achieve depth and fullness! How good is that?
A lot of people turn to henna for its long-lasting skin stain. Our henna stains the skin for up to two weeks and stains the brow hairs for four to six weeks. But… just remember, even though henna lasts longer, the processing time takes longer compared to tint. So, it’s honestly weighing up the benefits of both and seeing what your client prefers.
Henna is also a natural alternative to tint. Our formula is even vegan, cruelty-free, ammonia-free, and a natural powder. What’s not to love!?
Should You Offer Both Brow Tint & Henna To Your Clients?
To simply put it: YES!! 100% yes.
As we’re sure most of you have already noticed, not every client has the same wants and needs. You want to be able to offer everything on the market, which means having brow tint AND henna is a must!
Think about it - if you’re offering only tint or vice versa you’re losing potential customers who are after the alternate option. It would be silly not to.
