Everything You Need to Know about Brow & Lash Tinting

Brow and lash tinting is a popular trend these days at spas and salons.

You may have heard this term, but what does it mean? And is it safe? Read on to find out everything you need to know about brow and lash tinting in Philadelphia.

What is it?

Brow and lash tinting is the practice of using a semi-permanent vegetable dye to add color, texture and shape to your eyebrows and eyelashes.


The effect can transform the look of your face, and typically lasts from six to eight weeks, or until your lashes or eyebrow hairs fall out and new ones grow in.

Here’s how eyebrow tinting works:

  • An esthetician will apply an eyepatch or a pad to your eye, and surround the area with a protective cream.
  • They will then use an applicator to apply the dye to the eyebrow.
  • When the solution dries, they wash away any excess solution with soap and water.

Eyelash tinting involves a similar process:

  • The esthetician puts a protective cream below your eyes to make sure your skin doesn’t stain, and then places a cotton pad on top of the cream.
  • You close your eyes, while the esthetician uses a fine brush to apply the tint to your eyelashes.
  • Your lashes will need at least 10 minutes to set

What are the benefits of brow and lash tinting?

Both processes are quick and relatively inexpensive, and they allow you to have bolder brows and lashes. In the case of eyelash tinting, you’ll be able to avoid worrying about wearing mascara for a few weeks.

Is it safe?

Yes…but only when done by a trained professional.

“If done by a well-trained and highly experienced esthetician or hair colorist who knows what she’s doing, it’s absolutely fine,” dermatologist Dr. Jeannette Graf tells WebMD.
