Henna is a natural, plant based dye which has been used for centuries to colour hair, skin and clothes. Today it is still an important part of many cultures. For example, intricate “mehndi” designs are popular for Indian weddings.
Henna comes from the Lawsonia inermis plant, known asthe hina, which grows in India, the Middle East and parts of North Africa.
The leaves are dried and crushed into powder. This is then mixed with water (some therapists like to use rose water) to create the dye.
Henna comes in a range of colours, so you can choose thep erfect shade for each client’s skin tone and hair colour.
Henna brows temporarily dye the eyebrow hair and underlying skin to create bolder, better defined eyebrows.
Stylists use henna to improve the shape of uneven brows and add fullness to sparse eyebrows.
The henna brows treatment is fairly long lasting, enhancing the brows for four to six weeks.
Firstly, you need to select the right shade of henna for your client. You then mix the henna powder with water to create a paste. This is applied to the eyebrows and left to soak in for around ten fifteen minutes. This will be dependant on the shade desired and your clients hair and skin tone.
Henna needs to be applied with great care to avoid staining the skin beyond the brow shape (and to ensure you don’t stain your own hands!).We always recommend using Vaseline to outline the brows and minimise the risk of mistakes, as you would for eyebrow tinting. And you should always wear gloves to minimise the risk of staining your own hands! .
The henna brows treatment is often followed by waxing, to further enhance the shape and crisp finish.
Eyebrow design continues to be a hot topic. And adding henna brows to your portfolio will give you even more flexibility to create the look each client is after.
The effect of henna is more dramatic than tinting because it stains the skin as well as the eyebrow hairs, giving the appearance of greater depth. It’s a great option for clients who really want their brows to pack a punch! It is also hugely popular due to it being a natural product, compared to other products that contain chemicals.
You will receive one to one tuition on selecting the right shade for each client, mixing the henna paste and applying it.
We will cover all health and safety considerations and any protective measures required for you or the client. This will include identifying where henna brows might not be appropriate, for example if your client suffers from skin conditions such as eczema in the brow area.
You can receive your henna brows training at our Brighton salon.
Alternatively, we can come to your salon or your home. We’re happy to travel throughout Sussex and beyond.
