Henna tips all brow stylists should know about!

Posted by Racheal Keeley on

Henna eyebrows are one of the most popular brow trends that are here to stay! 

What is Henna? Henna is a product used instead of traditional tint. The main difference being it leaves a stain on the skin, as well as the eyebrow hair. The product is derived from the Hina plant – so is a more natural alternative for your clients that have allergies to the peroxide used in traditional brow tint.

HOW TO CREATE A PERFECT HENNA STAIN

THE BASE

The first trick to get a great henna stain is to look at the skin base you are working on. You want to ensure the skin is as smooth as possible! And even more importantly – hydrated. Let your client know to exfoliate and moisturise her skin the day before she comes in. Or you can incorporate a brow scrub on the day of her treatment.

THE PRODUCT

Henna brands I love – I have been using Le Marque for almost two years and I love it! The colours are beautiful and don’t have as much warmth as brands I have previously tested.

THE APPLICATION

Build up your product slowly and make sure you coat all of the hair. You want the application to be even throughout the brow to ensure you get an even stain.

THE REMOVAL

Apply coconut oil or almond oil, this will keep your colour looking beautiful for longer. The skin will hold the colour better if it stays hydrated. Once she leaves your salon, she can apply a nourishing oil daily to enhance her results.

THE AFTERCARE

You want to tell your client proper aftercare to ensure that she gets longevity out of her colour. Keeping the brows free from exfoliants and products that will strip her colour faster. 

THE MAINTENANCE

Henna lasts 4-8 weeks depending on the skin type, by letting your client know how to maintain her brows, and scheduling in her revisit appointments, this will keep your client consistent and fill your books! An oily skin will fade faster than a hydrated skin. So it’s important to give her accurate guidance on how she needs to maintain her results.
