The Dos and Don'ts of Henna Brows: Things You Should Know!
Gone are the days when the beauty industry had only a few eyebrow enhancement techniques. With the rising demand for fuller, natural-looking brows, henna has become a popular choice among beauty professionals. At London Lash, we've embraced the allure of the henna brow trend and have seen its transformative powers firsthand, therefore we created So Henna. As the beauty community continues to explore the world of brow henna, it's crucial for Brow Technicians to be informed about the best practices. In this guide, we share the essential dos and don'ts of henna brows.
The Dos of Henna Brows:
DO Understand Your Client's Needs: Before starting any henna brow session, ensure you have a clear consultation with your client. Understand their desired finished brows, from shade, thickness, and shape. Every individual has unique preferences and facial features, so tailoring the application to suit their needs is paramount.
DO Perform a Patch Test: Just like with other brow and lash treatments, always do a patch test at least 48 hours before applying henna, especially if it's the client's first time. This will help detect any potential allergic reactions. Read all about patch testing for So Henna browshere.
DO Prepare the Brows Properly: Before applying brow henna, cleanse the brow area with a Foam Cleanser to remove any oils, makeup, and impurities. This ensures a smooth application and optimal colour development.
DO Invest in Quality Henna Products: Not all henna is created equal. At London Lash, we advocate for the use of premium high quality henna powder, such as our very own So Henna, to guarantee vibrant, long-lasting results.
DO Educate Your Clients: Make sure your clients understand the longevity of the henna brow treatment and the necessary aftercare to maintain the lush, tinted look. Feel free to retail theSo Henna Brow Oil and ourAftercare Leaflet as a client aftercare package.
The Don'ts of Henna Brows:
DON'T Rush the Process: Henna brows require precision. Take your time during application to ensure that the brows are evenly coated and the desired shape is achieved.
DON'T Over-darken: While it's tempting to go for a bold look, it's always best to start with a lighter shade and build up if necessary. It’s also important to get your timings right and avoid leaving the henna on for too long. Remember, it's easier to add more colour than to reduce its intensity.
DON'T Use Just Any Henna: Brow henna is different from the henna used for temporary body art. Ensure you're using a product specifically designed and formulated for brows, like our So Henna, which has been created with the safety of your clients in mind.
DON'T Forget Aftercare: Inform your clients about the importance of avoiding harsh facial cleansers and excessive rubbing of the brow area post-treatment. Advise them to use a brow oil to keep the brows nourished. Proper aftercare ensures longevity and vibrancy of the tint.
DON'T Neglect Continued Education: The beauty industry is ever-evolving. Keep yourself updated with the latest techniques, products, and trends to provide the best services to your clients. You can do this by following our dedicated Instagram page @SoHenna_Official or subscribe to our newsletter.
